What we love
- Wooden Buildings Blend Seamlessly into the Forest
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.

In-Depth Villa Details

Enjoy the Luxury of Your Own Private Resort
Luxurious and incredibly private, the Estates, accessible from Kuala Lumpur by helicopter or via car and luxury yacht, is located on the northern vicinity on the private island of Pangkor Laut. Eight individual enclaves were crafted as private paradises, with inspiration drawn from a slew of traditions and influences - from vernacular architecture of the Malay Archipelago, to British colonial verandahs, to sustainable architecture, resulting in an own distinct identity and capturing the spirit of a traditional Southeast Asian estate. The name itself conjures up an atmosphere reminiscent of the romantic lifestyle of a British estate manager of old Malaya.
The overarching principle during the development of the estates was to tread lightly on the land, underlining all efforts to minimise impact on the land and protecting the environment. Living spaces were subtly weaved into the jungle terrain, painstakingly negotiated and built around boulders, natural ponds and trees, ensuring the acres of rainforest remained pristine.
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. The lush rainforest canopy eclipses the discrete individual living, dining, resting, bath and bedroom pavilions with a living emerald veil. 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.
On each estate, personal butlers are at hand to ensure every attention to detail is looked after, from personalised dining experiences to arranging a massage from the award-winning Spa Village in the privacy of your own villa; while a private chef prepares dishes to cater to individual tastes and requirements. Should guests wish to venture from the pure relaxation of their estate, the vibrant atmosphere of Pangkor Laut Resort is just minutes away by chauffeur-driven car.
For all its luxury, the Estates' greatest appeal is the unobtrusive way it blends with the natural forest environment. Its aesthetics and the calm silence, broken only by the melodious sounds of the island's wildlife, bring peace of mind and a deep tranquillity. Here, life arrives at your doorstep or perches on your window sill. A daily orchestra performs the omnipresent songs of the cicadas, harmonising with the sweet trilling of the birds to the tempo of the lapping waves. What the estates provide goes beyond mere luxury, in this private sanctuary; you are taken to another world.
