Nestling easily into this spectacular virgin rainforest habitat, Pangkor Laut Resort, part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World collection, climbs the hillsides and curves around Emerald Bay where fine white sands and jade waters number amongst the world's most beautiful beaches.
Villas are airy and spacious, have a large balcony with loungers plus a bathroom with an oversized tub. The adult only, stilted overwater bungalows stand amidst lapping waves, linked only by wooden walkways. Some villas have direct access to the four-acre Spa Village where guests can relax in sheer tranquillity beside the exclusive lap pool or indulge in a rejuvenating treatment.
Every meal is a feast flavoured by the history of the land; the finest local ingredients transformed into a banquet seasoned by sea breeze. Dining at Pangkor Laut Resort is a celebration of the region's culinary arts. Here, nature draws on all of her bounty to play chef just for you.
Resting beneath the shade of forest giants as old as the land, this island is not only home to one of the world's premier resorts but also to variety of wildlife. Long-tailed macaques and oriental pied hornbills perch in the branches above while white-bellied sea eagles soar overhead and large monitor lizards sunbathe on the island's rocky outcrops.
Nature is respected here, almost revered and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced.
Rooms & Suites
Comfort, warmth and contemporary elegance find a home on the private island of Pangkor Laut. This one-of-a-kind resort nestles comfortably into its jungle island habitat, offering guests beautifully appointed luxury accommodation set high amidst the hills, nestled within lush gardens or resting on stilts above the tropical waters surrounding the island.
Reconnect to a PURE world, the hotels' activities programme that vivifies the senses; immersing you in the vibrancy, scents, textures, sounds and tastes of the natural environment and cultural heritage of the region. Here, where time is measured by the rise and fall of tides, the island, and the pace at which you choose to experience its endless wonders, is yours.
Regain physical and mental harmony by exploring the resort's yoga or tai chi quan morning sessions amidst the fresh ocean breeze and soothing sound of the waves. Featuring therapeutic breathing, postural and moving exercises, tai chi quan develops inner stamina and circulates energy; exercising the body, stimulating its energy systems and enhancing mental functions. Alternatively, yoga combines physical postures, breathing techniques and meditation to unite the body and mind, improving strength, flexibility and muscle tone.
Uncover the mysteries of the island's spectacular virgin rainforest on a complimentary guided jungle trek with the resident naturalist. Two trails are available, a refreshing short trek through the northern perimeter and a longer more invigorating trek that offers stunning views of the sea from the top of the southern perimeter. These daily walks reveal fascinating insights on the rich plant and animal life that thrives beneath the ancient forest, and ends at the beautiful Emerald Bay.
For water lovers, a varied selection of non-motorised watercraft is available for hire at the Water Sports Centre. Choose to explore the island in a kayak, chase the wind on waterski, skim the waves on a wakeboard or a paddle board or sail the seas in a catamaran.
