Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Pangkor Laut

Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia is a unique and secluded hideaway that is only accessible by guests, situated on a privately owned island in the Straits of Malacca. Made up of traditional wooden Malay architecture, the resort complements the beautiful natural environment. Inside Pangkor Laut Resort, local woods, intricate carvings and open walls create bright and luxurious spaces that reflect the spirit and traditions of the country. The resort and the eight estates take up only a fraction of the island, leaving it unspoilt and covered by a two million year old rainforest. Though Pangkor Laut Resort is secluded, it offers plenty of facilities. With a variety of superb bars and restaurants, dining options are extensive and range from exquisite fine dining in Fisherman's Cove with exclusive views of the sea to a barbecue dinner at Emerald Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Guests at Pangkor Laut may embark on a sunset cruise around the island, discover the art of Southeast Asian cuisine with The Chef's Kitchen Experience or simply indulge in one of the exotic spa treatments at the award-winning Spa Village. The Spa Village provides treatments that draw upon traditional Malay techniques alongside Chinese, Indian and Thai practices in an elegant four-acre spa haven. Pangkor Laut Resort's villas enjoy varied locations, from nestled in the hills to standing on stilts over the sea. Luxurious and spacious, they are appointed with local wood, exquisite fabrics and cushioned sun loungers. Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia is perfect for couples.

About Malaysia

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Malaysia is an experience of a fusion of cultures, replete with enticing sights and sounds. Conjuring up images of jungles brimming with exotic life, clippers cutting through the South China Sea and sultans sitting in opulent palaces, colonial Malaysia has thrown of its topi, and is today sprinting hot on the heels on neighbour Singapore, fast becoming a place of thrusting, modern self-confidence. Two countries for the price of one, Malaysia is cleaved in half by the South China Sea, dividing the country into two distinctive worlds. The peninsula is a multicultural buffet of Malay, Chinese and Indian flavours, while Borneo hosts a wild jungle of orang-utans, granite peaks and remote tribes. Within and throughout these two very different regions lie extraordinary extremes: from the space-age high-rises of Kuala Lumpur to the smiling longhouse villages of Sarawak and the calm, powdery beaches of the Perhentian Islands. Offering abundant riches for inquisitive explorers, Malaysia is also blessed with one of the most delicious cuisines in the world – and again, the influence from different, and differing cultures is key, with Chinese-Malay ‘nonya’ dishes appearing on the same table as Indian banana leaf curries, and Chinese buffets standing alongside spicy Malay food stalls. And despite all the pockets of ethnicities, religions, landscapes and the sometimes-great distances between them, the beauty of Malaysia is that it has somehow successfully fused all its influences, creating a country that is one of the safest, most stable, and easiest to explore in Asia. Malaysia is a highly recommended holiday destination.

Highlights of Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur, with the 1,483ft Petronus Twin Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world, dominating the skyline, and a veritable smorgasbord of international cuisine; Pulau Langkawi, a quite stunning collection of beach-fringed islands with luxury resorts to match; the colonial delights of Penang’s Georgetown; the night market at Kota Bharu, with traditional kite and shadow puppet stalls and displays; Cameron Highlands, where you can step back in time wandering the tea plantations amid leafy, verdant, cool surrounds; the bone-white beaches of Pulau Perhentian; exploring the jungle and river systems of Taman Negara, Malaysia’s premier national park; Endau-Rompin National Park, Malaysia’s last remaining lowland jungle; the historic city of Melaka, famed for its Baba-Nonya cuisine and heritage architecture; Kuching, Sarawak’s most historic and attractive town; sail along the Rejang river in the heart of Borneo; walk to the summit of Mt Kinabalu, or go rafting and jungle walking from its base at Kota Kinabalu; explore the extraordinary cave systems of Gunung Mulu National Park, trekking the famous head-hunter’s trail; visit Sepilok orang-utan sanctuary; look for wildlife in the upland rainforest trails of the Kelabit Highlands; dive the world-class dive sites of Tun Sakaran Marine Park.

Travel around Malaysia

Roads on the peninsula are generally high quality; road rules are basically the same as in Britain, with right-hand drive vehicles, and cars driving on the right. This makes car-hire in Malaysia a breeze compared with most other Asian countries, although roads can be rough on Borneo, where 4x4 jeeps are essential. Buses are an excellent and cheap option, as are boats and ferries which sail between the peninsula and offshore islands. As for trains, Peninsular Malaysia has a modern, comfortable and economical railway service that has basically two lines. One runs from Singapore to KL, then to Butterworth and on into Thailand. The other line, known as the Jungle Railway, cuts through the interior of Malaysia linking Gemas, Taman Negara with Kota Bharu, a transit town for Pulau Perhentian.
