I couldn't believe our 3D2N Island holiday at Pangkor Laut Resort has ended. It was too fast!
I have heard a lot of people praising about the resort and now I will write my own experience with it. I would try to write as much details as possible because the experience was fantastic and I truly recommended it for everyone.
We depart from KL to Sitiawan from 9am on Sunday morning. We reached Bidor at 1+ hour later, we then had our lunch at the famous Ban Chan restaurant. We had duck leg wan tan mee and White coffee. Noodle was nice but the drinks are too sweet.
We heading to Sitiawan and Lumut from Bidor after lunch. It took us 2+ hour to reach Lumut Jetty, passing a few kampungs, palm oil plantation, and coconut trees place. Pangkor Laut Resort has an office at the Jetty, you would see it once you reach the Jetty(It's on your left hand side). Once we arrived, we moved our luggages to the office and enjoyed a cold tower and drinks. Dear hubby and Jacky drove the cars to park at a private car park which cost RM8 per day, well, reasonable price and it's safe I can say.
When the speed boat was ready, the worker lead all 15 passengers to onboard the boat. In 20 minutes time, we have reached the Pangkor Laut Resort. We were greated by a few workers at Pangkor Laut resort jetty and they lead us to the reception. While we were on our way to the reception, there was a boat passing by and the guys on that boat shouted "Welcome to Malaysia"! It's funny. They must have thought we are foreigners. I have heard that people from Pangkor or other islands always passby Pangkor Laut Resort, just to have a look at the beautiful resort.
Once we reach the reception, the worker passed us some cold drinks and lead us to the library where a guy introduced us Pangkor Laut resort with a map. After the introduction, the guy checked with us If we want to have our lunch directly or we would like to check in the room first. We choosed to have our lunch later so he lead us to our Garden Villas. It is a 2 storeys building with 4 Villas. 8 of us seperated into 4 Villas and when we opened the door, we were very happy to see the clean and very nice room with air-cond switched on! I was very delighted for that because most of the hotels do not switch on electricity until you plug in the room key/card but Pangkor Laut Resort is different. They welcome you with cold and clean room.
Our room has a King size bed, a couch, TV, working table, 2 wardrobes 2 sinks(which hubby and I no need to fight for it anymore), a bathroom, a toilet, and a bathtub. We choosed the upper level unit which the bathtub is smaller but more privacy compare to the lower level unit.
After we unloaded and relax for awhile, we headed to have lunch at The Royal Bay Beach Club. The restaurant was full so we sitted outside. Our package included 2 free breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast is buffet style and we could choose a starter or soup, a main course and a desert for our lunch and dinner. While we were looking at the menu, we were shocked with their price.
The food is so nice until it attracked a Monkey! There was a naughty monkey who climbed to my friend's chair and grabbed her food! We all shouted loud and the workers running out to save my friend. They throwed something to chase the monkey away and another worker removed the dish from the table. All this happened too sudden and none of us manage to take a picture or video of it. They replace the food to my friend quickly and lucky my friend was not hurt.
After lunch we took some walk in the resort. The scenery is superb and I couldn't resist to change my swim suit to swim in the swimming pool which over looking to the sea and sea villas. After swimming, we enjoyed jacuzzi and sauna at the swimming pool area.
For dinner that night, we had chosen Chinese food at Uncle Lim's restaurant. Uncle Lim is the oldest staff in Pangkor Laut resort and his restaurant is famous. We ordered seaweed seafood soup and duck spring roll as starter, then follow by 8 main courses and deserts. To our amaze, the seaweed seafood soup cost RM360 for a big bowl! It's even more expensive than having sharkfin soup in KL! Our dinner bill cost more than RM2000 for 8 of us. But the food really taste good, the prawns are big and the fishes are fresh.
After the dinner, we went back to the room with a van. There are vans to fetch us around the Island. When we reached our room, we noticed that the light at the balcony was lighted up, and they have switched on mosquito coil and put a aroma stick beside our bed. They also refilled drinking water in the room. Hubby slept quite early that day because he drove all the way and was tired. That's the end of our day 1 at Pangkor Laut Resort.
