Pangkor Laut – One Island One Resort
Pangkor Laut Restort in Malaysia on the West Coast is more like the Maldives than, well, The Maldives! Island life in Asia at its best!
The Pangkor Laut Treaty which was signed here is a significant milestone in the history of Malaysia. It marked the beginning of foreign power intervention in the administration of then Malay states. The promised view, is obstructed by a huge industrial harbor platform of some sort. Infinity views, but be aware that the island view and experience is effected by this. A lot of people address this, since the resort doesn’t disclose this anywhere.
Shimmering in tropical perfection, the privately owned resort island , lays just 1.6km off the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

Declared a paradise by the late Pavarotti and previously voted ‘Number One in the World’ by Condé Nast Traveller; here, wooden buildings blend seamlessly into the forest, walls curve around foliage, and roofs open up to allow trees to continue on their journey to the sky.
Resting beneath the shade of forest giants as old as the land, this island is not only home to one of the world’s premier resorts but also to variety of wildlife. Long-tailed macaques and oriental pied hornbills perch in the branches above while white-bellied sea eagles soar overhead and large monitor lizards sunbathe on the island’s rocky outcrops.
Nature is respected here, almost revered and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced.
