Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort: Good seafront accommodation

Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort offers a range of rooms from standard double rooms, to more luxurious family rooms and even chalets looking straight onto Pasir Bogak. The gardens are beautifully kept and the swimming pool is great. Most of the staff are friendly and can help out with information about both land and seas trips around the island. There is a good buffet breakfast and the outdoor eating area looks directly onto the beach. The rates vary depending on the type of room and the time of year - weekend rates are more than 10% higher than weekday rates, and during the 'super peak' times, prices almost double. Cheaper prices can be gained by booking through a hotal provider rather than directly through the resort web site.
Recommended for a chill out during the week when it is considerably quieter than weekends.

YTL Pangkor Laut Resort: Heavenly Stay

My wife recently gave me a surprise birthday present - 4 days 3 night stay at Spa Village Pangkor Laut Resort. We stayed at the Sea Villa with all inclusive. The service was impeccable, the staff extremely friendly (we made many friends), and the little touches by the housekeeping dept made our stay truly memorable. Every night they would make animals out of towels to greet us as we come back to the room to retire. And in the morning, we would open all the windows and doors to get the morning seabreeze and as a result become tourist attraction for the many speedboats with tourists on board to get a peek into our cosy chamber. Some are lucky to catch me in my`birthday suit' or in the sunken bathtub with panaromic view of the ocean and surrounding islands. It was one heck of a birthday, because on that day I had to go thro' 7 baths. A shower in the morning, 4 different types of bath at the spa (cold swim, japanese bath, hot soak, scrub bath) followed by a massage, another shower 2 hours later back in our room and finally a flower bath surrounded with candles and a birthday cake. By that time, my skin has all shrunk and shrivelled. I must say it was one heck of a present. Food was good especially Uncle Lim's aromatic fish. Reservations required becoz' it is always full house. The restaurant is built on a boulder! With all that wonderful ambience and balinese resort style concept at PLR, it has probably make us want to retreat to this place for all our holidays relaxation.

The only set-back, my wife loves swimming in the sea and she has to share Emerald Bay with the fishing boats!

Pangkor Rimba Camp: Nice but need to upgrade the cleaness

Owner-Abang Bob is very nice !
But the cleaness of room really want to upgrade ......! Then will be perfect !
Rimba camp facing to the beach, can swim, but if you go to Pulau Giam with boat at teluk nipah(RM15/person)around 5 minutes, the sea water will be more clear, you can stay there from 9am to 6pm, but, please please don't pay first, cause they may be forgot to bring you back, please ask for their HP no.(they may be never pick up your phone), we wait there 2 hours(very bad service of the rental boat at teluk nipah, please upgrade the boat service, its really bring bad image for the traveller), another best ideal is please rent (RM20/boat/2person) the boat from Abang Bob and kayaking to the Pulau Giam, I think this is more best ideal, but , please make sure your stomach is full, if not, no energy coming back after you played few hours in the beach !

OMBAK INN - PANGKOR: PANGKOR ACCOMODATION NIGHTMARE

Ombak Inn in "PANGKOR" is one of the most unclean place that I have ever stayed. The place was an absolute mess. Especially the rooms. Bathroom & Toilet were practically dirty. The pillow which my wife and I slept on was the most disgusting sight. I realised this too late. For RM90 it was not worth for even RM20.
Staff were quite friendly.
I would never recommend this place to anyone visiting this Island. There are other accomodations which is far better in price and clean than this place.

Coral Bay Resort: Resort that is not a resort

This place is actually blocks of apartments and is on the main road to Pasir Bogak beach. I only went up to the lobby and saw it had a big dining area near the lobby.

5 mins away from Pasir Bogak beach. Nothing pretty around it.

Pangkor Holiday Resort: Resort and resort

A medium sized place with chalets and a few rooms in a single storey block. Efficiently run with many workers. Clean. There is an adult pool and a kids pool. Quiet and near to the beach, Pair Bogak, about 5 mins walk away.

There are many types of lodging on this island that name themselves 'resort' when they are nothing more than hotels or a group of chalets. So this place is at least much better than those as it stands on quite a spacious ground of its own an has a nice pool.

Food is halal as the cooks are Malays. Quality of food is all right. The management is sensitive to needs of locals and provides useful items like a pail and plastic mug in the bathroom, useful for bathing or washing clothes. They also put sensible floor mats at the front door of the chalet to remove dirt from shoes and outside the bathroom door to dry slippers before you step into room. Slippers, jug kettle and tv in room.

Food stalls and other stalls that cater to the needs of tourists are just outside this resort.

Pangkor Laut Resort: Overrated

It was and is still is a highly rated accomodation in Malaysia. I thought 'why not give it a try?'. Since all we wanted was to experience the service, visit the renowned private beach Emerald Bay and pamper ourselves with a comfortable accomodation, we booked the basic room which is the hill villa. The hill villa is quite a climb even though I was young and energetic then. We got tired walking to the restaurants, etc. that we ended up staying very much in the room unless necessary.

The room is huge and comfortable though not totally private if I were to go out to my verandah cos just less than a meter away is the next villa's verandah. So we just stayed in the room. Bathroom is huge. There is a outdoor sunken bath. Real gorgeous. Did I use it? No. There was just too many dead leaves that kept falling down. I didn't expect to come to a resort and be stuck in the room.

Of course we had to go to Emerald Bay since Mr Pavarotti rated it so highly. Maybe I went there with too high an expectation. Yes, it is emerald in colour. Nothing that you have seen before. If I recall correctly, they didn't allow us to bring our cameras in and that's why no picture was taken of that place. There was a guard at the entrance of this private beach. We tried swimming in it but there was too many jelly fish that we got out quickly. It could be the season. Anyways, we ended up in the swimming pool instead since we didn't want to make the trip back to the room.

Pangkor Laut Resort: Delightful hideaway!

The resort is absolutely gorgeous. There are garden villas, beach villas, sea villas and spa villas. We stayed in a sea villa, paid an extra 200 euros per day for it and I must say it was a bit disappointing. The room was small, nice but not stunning, with a nice and large bathroom.
The really nice oversized bathtube opening to the sea didn't give any privacy if you had it opened.

I was sharing the room with my son and daughter and though I was paying for 3 people, not for an extra bed, the fruit they left was a small mango one day, the other day two tangerines and the last day they even forgot to leave any fruit.

Staff was very helpful and smily but not up to treat guests in a 5 star resort. No special atention or service.

The breakfasts were extensive but they lacked the quality a place like that ought to have. Juices not freshly squeezed, huge muffins, croissants and donuts that made us loose our hunger just to look at them. The pancakes and waffles were very good though.
There are no tvs in the villas but there are cd players and you can get some music cds from the library.

All in all, a lovely place but lacking the quality and service of a 5 star resort.

Sea View Hotel: private beach in Pantai Pasir Bogak

I have been to Pangkor many times and always stay at Sea View. The owner of this hotel was ex-badminton player@Thomas Cup in early 60s. We always call him Mr Tan. He will be staying at his hotel 2/3 times a week. We will wait for him from his fishing trip at 7pm infront of the restaurant , which is located beach front to select our own dinner-Fresh Fish!!!
Everyone will be waiting for him and ask him how the fish will be cook and sometimes he will cook the dishes personally. We always had a good time there.
There having private long beach just infront of the hotel, and swimming pool-for my kids its a must!!
They have other facilities to like boating,fishing,canoe,tabble tennis even can arrange you for trekking and snorkeling trip.
Pangkor Laut resort @Island, located just crossing the hotel. At night the hotel view are just lovely.

Pangkor Rimba Camp: Great Beach & Rainforest Surrounding Chalet

My Division visited Pangkor on the 12 May 06 for 2 nights and stayed at Pangkor Rimba Camp. This chalet is situated along Telok Nipah Beach. Although the name of this resort stated the word "camp" but it is just a name which indicated that this property also hosting a camping ground for those tourist who wish to 'stand-up' a camp instead of staying indoor.

The rooms are clean and come with attached bathroom. The environment is the most valuable asset or major plus point for this chalet because all the rooms/chalet are build within the canopy of various rainforest trees. The owner, Abang Bob, is a very friendly and flexible person in all angle. From what I had been told, Abang Bob is the President of Chalet Owners in Pangkor. His friendliness approached and ways of respecting his customer with full intention to ensure customer satisfactions is respectable.

The location of this chalet is separated from other chalet along the Teluk Nipah road strech and it is around less than 10 minutes walks from the restaurants & souvenir shops. But I think it is fair because to get such an enviroment (peaceful & greenish of rainforest), the chalet should located a bit far up.

1 restaurant and 1 small souvenir stall is in the chalet compound. The only chalet build in the beach front of Teluk Nipah whereby access to seaside is also a plus point. 1 karaoke hall also available. They also can organize great activities such as abseiling, repelling, canoeing, snorkeling, jungle tracking & others that can be bundle together with a package price.

Overall, we are very satisfied with this trip and we (35 persons) recommend this chalet for groups & individual who wanted to visit Pangkor excludes those traveller who wanted a luxury & hotel kind of accomodation.

Teluk Dalam Resort, Pangkor: Cozy Kampung Ambience but....

The Teluk Dalam Resort is situated at a bay on the northeast corner of Pangkor Island. The resort features chalet type accommodation away from the main tourist areas of Pangkor Island. The ferry ride from Lumut town on the mainland takes approximately 30 mins and the jetty is about 5 mins bus ride from the resort. This is the same jetty used by the more upmarket, 5-star Pangkor Island Beach Resort.
I took the "Aloha 123" package for RM123 per person per night, which included breakfast and dinner. Hence for a couple it cost us RM246 per night.
Although ranked as 4-star accommodation, it was disappointing as there was no room service, and the overall landscaping of the resort was unkempt. The management could have at least hired good gardeners to cut the grass and pluck out the weeds!
Food was nothing to shout about, but unless you have transport there's no other choice.
The beach was disappointing. The better beaches were situated at Coral Bay or Teluk Nipah, which is around 3-5 km away and a RM10 one-way taxi ride. Luckily for us we rented a small Kancil car for RM100 per day, which gave us the freedom to get out of the resort! There was simply no place to chill out and relax in the resort. We couldn't sleep till midnight because the live band was playing all night, and the singer was simply atrocious!
I would not recommend this resort as it was not worth the money. Either go for low budget at the Teluk Nipah or Pantai Bogar area, or go upmarket and try out the Pangkor Laut Beach Resort or even Pangkor Laut.
I guess, this would be OK for mid range budget travellers with children, or for corporations looking for a place to hold the family day outings or team building.
With proper management, this resort has the potential to be a great getaway!

Good location, quiet, nestled within the hills in a quiet bay. Right next to the airport (Berjaya Air flies in a couple of times weekly).

Pangkor Laut Resort: Malaysia's BEST ?

They claim to be one of the world's top hotels.

It's on a small private island opposite Pasir Bogak.

But after reading so many such claims which turned out to be jokes, you'd be advised to take it with a pinch of salt.

Anyway, this looks good. AND probably quite a good hotel.

Though not perfect yet ........ care to try ? Only RM 1 000 or so ....... very cheap

Pangkor Laut Resort: One resort on one private island

This is the ultimate resort to stay in for privacy, exclusivity and the Spa Village.

The facilities here are wonderful from its rooms (choose from garden or water chalets), big outdoor sunken tub, the infinity pools and of course the Spa Village with many treatments that will spoil you crazy!

Private island with 1 resort

Love the little service that cold towels and fresh frutis served when you're chilling at the pool or on the beach in Emerald Bay
