Amidst unspoiled rainforest and pristine white sand beaches on a private island, you’ll find the Pangkor Laut Resort – a private island located three miles off the West Coast of Malaysia along the Straits of Malacca. This two million years old island consists of just the one resort hence the tagline “One Island One Resort“! This one-of-a-kind resort exists in perfect harmony with nature, providing the ultimate retreat from the modern world.
Of the island’s 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort and its eight Estates. Each Estate comprises of a cluster of pavilions that are interconnected by a combination of flagged stone pathways, wooden bridges and decks, ponds, gardens and rock steps into an integrated whole. A focal point of every Estate, which houses two to four villas, is its private pool with dramatic views of the island’s breathtaking landscape, be it from a sandy beachfront setting or high up on the hillside amidst the jungle.
No wonder why Luciano Pavarotti called it Paradise: “This place is enchanting, it is a paradise. The morning when I woke up I went out and I was really moved, almost crying, to see what beautiful things God had done. This is a paradise!” One of the Suites in the Resort bears his name.
