... no way I was trekking through that jungle, polar bears and all sorts could've been in there). It was very chilled for the most part until I heard strange noises coming from the said jungle, rustling, branches snapping....paranoia sets in, so you go for a stroll along the beach to calm down then you see massive paw prints in the sand....Bear? Panther? Tiger? Dammit!! Where's that speedboat?!? Back at the ranch I think my above point was proved ...
Pulau Pangkor Sunday 19th January -Tuesday 21st January Pulau Pangkor means beautiful island although I'd read that it didn't really have a patch on Langkawi. Well I beg to differ. This might only be a weekend spot for the locals but I totally fell in love with it. Small enough to drive round on in less than an hour, we really got to know this place even if it was only for 2 days. The ferry made two stops at functioning Chinese fishing ports before ...
... has jumped to 6, but that is including us again. Our hostel is amazing. It has a full kitchen that we are allowed to use, saving lots of money on food. It has 10 hammocks set up at the moment, 5 guitars in the common area alone. It is somewhere one might just relax. I absolutely love it here, and if this is going to be the last beach until the Canadian summer, am I so okay with that!
... else they have. It's closed. So is that one and that one. Uh oh, guess it's convenience store noodles for me! I take a side street, yet discovered to me and am delighted to find an open restaurant, with a white guy inside! I ask for a menu, and fine prices reasonable and selection choice. More western food than local, but decent. I order a friend rice with a dish of black pepper chicken. Holy ****. It's amazing! So damn tasty! I wish I could eat it every night. It's ...
... I didn't even want to touch him. In a different world, he might have made a really good pet- he appeared to be a black lab mixture. We left the beach a little bit later and headed back to camp.
Later on that day I was reading in the hammock and we were contemplating what to do for dinner. The Dutch woman came up and we all decided to go to dinner together. We ended up at this place that we'd called ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pangkor Island Beach Resort
A Great Getaway
The holiday was a memorable and truly relaxing one. The room was great, the service was very good as well as the food. Would definitely make a second trip.
We (my wife and i) took a 4 days 3 night stay here and what can we say... a great getaway! The white sandy beach, a romantic "south pacific" buffet dinner by the poolside by the beach, and the cool sea breeze and sunset experience were second to none! If you want some privacy while sunbathing at the beach, this resort should be number one in your list.
i have just come back from a 3-night stay at the former pan pacific resort now known as pangkor island beach resort. i understand that there were plenty of teething problems when the management was switched from pan pacific to IGB group. but, i must say during my stay there, there was nothing but sweet memories! the staff were very helpful, prompt and friendly. we did not experience the setbacks the unlucky traveler experienced (please scroll down below to read his complaints a few reviews before this post).
We have just returned from Malaysia having spent 6 night at the Pangkor Island Beach Resort as part of our vacation. Having read the reviews we went with an open mind & came away very happy. We booked an Ocean Wing Room which had plenty of space & was well looked after, the bathroom was very large, balconies are small which was the only drawback. Whilst we were ther the Pacific Terrace Restaurant closed for refurbishment of the kitchens to allow them to have a more extensive menu in futur. The Hornbill Restaurant is mainly the busset both for breakfast & dinner but they do have an a la carte menu. Prices in the restaurants were obviousley higher than outside the resort but UK visitors are very good value for money. Ostrich Steak £5. The staff were always very friendly & extremley helpful. You did need to preorder fish & the waiter even rang our room in the late afternoon to ask which table we would like & he would set a table by the pool for us if we wished. Just one word of caution if you decide on the Jungle Trek it is quite steep & you need shoes with good grips & watch out for leaches.
We stayed at Pangkor Isalnd Beach Resort for 9 days in February 2005. The location of the hotel is the best on Pangkor Island. We stayed at the new Ocean Wing. The rooms were nice. The furniture is rustic. And the room was clean. If you like good pillows then you will be disappointed. The balcony was very small. Just room for two chairs. The room service was ok. They chnaged towels once a day. Somedays they forgot to change towel etc. The food is average and very pricy compared to local restaurants. The beach is quite nice. It is long and they offer a lot of watersports. The sand is not that nice. A bit grey and the water was not that clear. The temperature of the water was nice. They had plenty of sunbeds that is good. The pool had a swimup bar. The major drawback for this hotel is the lack of service. It wasn't just us that complained about this. The buffet dinner or will set you back 55 RM, a beer will set you back 21RM for a bottle. Lunch is 20-25 RM pr person. If you take a cab to Pasir Bogak 18 RM you can have delicious chinese food. Each main course is 5-7 RM and the beer is 12 RM for 0.67l. If you are looking for a place to go on your honeymoon forget this. Instead go to Pangkor Laut. It is more pricey, but is is a totally different experience.On Pangkor Island there were many old people (50-60 years) and on Pangkor Laut you had a lot of honeymooners (30-45). If you want a nice relaxing holiday and doesn't care so much about the service ut is a good place to stay, but if you would like to have luxury go to Pangkor Laut instead
We have just returned from a 10 day stay,not having been before we went with an open mind but took account of reviews posted on the web.
A beautiful unspoilt island
We stayed for 10 nights in January 2005 and found a remote unspoilt island with beautiful soft white sand. This is ideal for a relaxing holiday away from it all with little to do but read and enjoy the wildlife - monkeys in the gounds and even on your balcony if you're lucky. Hornbills come to be fed twice each day (a fantastic sight) and iguana's can be seen on the beach/rocks.
The food was good and very reasonably priced considering that there is little choice of where else to go. The staff were mostly very friendly and helpful and throughout our stay we didn't come across anybody that wanted to sell you anything or rip you off - very unsual these days !
We would certainly go back there.
Room air cond faulty throuhout length of stay despite paying high room rate. No replacement room available. Only provide with fan upon request. Have to sleep thru the night sweaty. Tired instead of relaxing. Not even an apology from the hotel mgt team. All is well and normal. Disappointed! disappointed! Pls. get the room air cond. working otherwise do not offer to customer.
This was my first trip back to the resort since it had changed management and I felt a little disappointed by the attitude of staff. On my visits in the past, staff were always friendly and efficient. I found some of the new staff to be quite rude (which i find is quite rare in Malaysia as the people are truly beautiful!!!)
An Beautiful Retreat
We visited this resort inn 2003 whilst it was undergoing refurbishment. This did not really affect our holiday. We found it a beautiful and relaxing place and were rewarded by seeing the illusive sea otters in the lake one evening. Our room was beautifully clean with a stunning view out to sea. We ate out most evenings - there are a number of small restaurants nearby and the waiters will recommend them. We particularly liked No1 which specialised in fish.
