Used to be known as Pan Pacific Pangkor Resort until recently. After hotel management was changed, its name is now known as Pangkor Island Beach Resort. Located on the north-west part of the island, the resort is about 20 minutes journey from Pangkor Jetty through meandering hilly roads and sharp bends. Pangkor Airport is much closer, about 5 minutes taxi ride away.
The resort is accessible by once-daily flights from Subang Airport (SZB) on Berjaya Air. The airfare is rather exorbitant, but it gets you there in no time. Otherwise, take the express bus from any major towns in Peninsula Malaysia to Lumut, where the jetty to Pangkor is located. Driving should be easy too for visitors from Penang, Ipoh or KL.
The two main room types are Ocean Wing rooms and Pacific Wings room. Both are of equally high standard, although Ocean Wing rooms are slightly more expensive. There are 2 big swimming pools, one for each wing. Open air lobby, lounges, one main restaurant, an extremely long beach for swimming and relaxing, games room, TV set, regular-sized bathrooms, phone units, golf course, etc.
One could just relax by the Golden Sands Beach fronting the resort all day long. The beach is extremely long. I estimate the length to be 2-3 kilometers of walking from one side to the other. Golfing option is available.
Take a taxi van to other beaches such as Teluk Nipah (Nipah Bay), Teluk Ketapang and Pasir Bogak Beach (which is fronting the world-famous Pangkor Laut Resort). Kayaking is available at Teluk Nipah if you are interested. There are two islands off the coast of Teluk Nipah, namely Giam Island and Mentagor Island.
Pacific Wing sea-facing with breakfast goes for RM258 per night, while Ocean Wing Deluxe sea-facing with breakfast goes for RM335 per night.
During my visit, I paid a slightly higher price of RM360 per night for an Ocean Wing room.
As usual, prices quoted were correct at the time of review and are subject to change by the resort management.
