Another wonderful memory to add to our list
We returned to Pangkor Laut for our second visit having had a fantastic time there in 2016. We were not disappointed this time and as during our previous stay, we received the very best of attention and enjoyed every minute of it.
As before, the facilities were great, the gardens extremely well kept, the Jungle Walk really interesting and relaxing at Emerald Bay until sunset is something that we will always remember.
The food and service in the restaurants were excellent, with each location offering a different dining experience.
Having tried it last time, we returned to the Spa, where we thoroughly enjoyed the Bath House Ritual and can strongly recommend the Balinese Massage.
It was fascinating to watch the hornbills (particularly the Giant Hornbills at Emerald Bay) the fruit bats, the monitor lizards and the abundance of fish in the clear water. To enhance our enjoyment of nature, our Jungle Guide, Asni, gave us an in depth commentary on the history of the Island and also the flora and fauna of Pangkor Laut.
When we stayed last year, there was quite a lot of floating debris around the sea villas. We were very pleased to see a huge improvement in this situation during this visit. It must be a very difficult task for the management and staff to resolve this problem, particularly in bad weather, but all credit to them; they are doing a great job.
We have heard one or two comments about the lack of televisions in the sea villas. Who needs televisions when you can get away from the humdrum of everyday life and just relax in the beautiful surroundings of Pangkor Laut, listening to the sound of the sea and enjoying each other’s company? Note to the management - Definitely don’t install them!
All of the staff did a splendid job of looking after us, as always, and were all smiling, polite and helpful. It is difficult to name them all but included in the list are Vignes, Serena, Kyra, Yuni, Komang, Aini, Yong, Asni and a special mention to Ong and Nicole, who's attention to detail at the restaurants was exceptional and who we congratulate on their engagement.
We would also wish to make a special mention of and to offer our thanks to the General Manager, Mr Philippe Cavory, who we had already had the pleasure of meeting at other YTL locations. In spite of his extremely busy schedule, he took the time to sit and chat with us and we wish him every success in his new role at Pangkor Laut.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to all concerned.
