The island of Pangkor Laut is a true paradise for nature and beach lovers alike. Little monkeys and tropical birds sing in a rippling rainforest, which forms the backdrop to immaculate beaches lapped by aquamarine waters teeming with tropical fish. Luxury Pangkor Laut holidays provide the ultimate escape, where you can sunbathe, snorkel and sail.
Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island three miles off the western coast of Malaysia, and this exclusive destination was named the number one resort in the world by Conde Nast. The resort is nestled within a luscious rainforest that opens up to a coastline of soft white sand and shimmering azure waters. Wooden buildings curve around the forest and blend in harmony with the natural scenery creating a tranquil atmosphere.
Take a gentle stroll into the forest and see exotic animals thriving in the lush surroundings. Watch friendly long-tailed macaques playing in the trees, impressive monitor lizards basking in the sun and tropical birds whistling morning mantras. Head out on a sunset cruise and capture the magic of the seas bathed in pink and orange light. Relax in an infinity pool and unwind at an award winning spa.
Enjoy a luxurious five-course set menu by candlelit and dine on the beach under the starlit night sky. Be sure to spend a day at nearby Pangkor Island. It's a colourful place with bright rural towns, winding forested streets and lively markets that infuse the air with the scent of aromatic spices. Explore a restored Dutch fort and wander the ornate Fu Lin Kong Temple, the largest Taoist shrine on the island.
Pangkor Laut has a tropical climate, which means consistent sunny weather that hovers around 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year. A popular time for luxury travellers to visit the island is from March to June when the weather is at its finest.
November to February is considered the rainy season. However, typically the rainfall here occurs in short bursts usually in the late afternoon and evenings and clears up quickly. The island is quieter during this time of year, and is a great time to snag a luxury deal.
Start your day with a wide breakfast selection that features a range of foods from French delicacies to traditional Malaysian breakfast items. In the evening, enjoy international dishes and Malay specialities cooked to your preferences by experienced chefs.
A luxury Pangkor Laut getaway offers unique dining experiences too. Enjoy a five course romantic candlelit dinner on the white sands of Emerald Bay with barbecued lobster and try a private dinner on the rocks with an expert chef preparing food on a grill before your eyes.
