Pangkor Laut is a wonderful island - absolute paradise - we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed but be warned! 2 sea villas collapsed into the sea during our time there. I have some photos of this! Will post once my camera arrives back. They were just a few villas down from where we were staying. Apparently one collapsed and hit another with both falling into sea around 8am. One villa had a french couple (i am told) on their honeymoon trapped inside. Luckily they got out from the story i heard - very lucky! It scared a lot of us staying in the villas near by. Its a shame because the sea villas are beautiful and so is island staff etc. Looks like a major maintenance problem or freak of nature?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island located three miles off the West Coast of Malaysia along the Straits of Malacca. This piece of paradise has been 2 million years in the making, and here you will find one of the world's premier resorts nestling in the shade of forest giants as old as the land. You will find no other resorts - just secluded bays curled around pristine beaches, evening skies woven with colour, and a deep sense of serenity reserved exclusively for our guests. A combination of luxury, natural beauty and age-old wilderness woven together to produce an environment where peace and magically memorable moments are the currency. Of the island's 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort and its eight Estates. Wooden buildings blend seamlessly into the forest as if nature had been the architect dictating how walls curve around foliage, and roofs open up to allow trees to continue on their journey to the sky. Nature is respected here, almost revered, and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced. ... more less
