The Estates At Pangkor Laut Resort, Pangkor Laut, Malaysia

There are few places on earth like The Estates at Pangkor Laut. This is a destination absolutely unique in both its environment and the experience it offers – a retreat that combines pure privacy and privilege.

Located on the privately owned island of Pangkor Laut, off the west coast of Malaysia, The Estates reflect a South East Asian past that integrates beauty, luxury and comfort.

The island itself is already well-known as the location of the world renowned Pangkor Laut Resort, a destination that has drawn critical acclaim since it was created in the nineties.

The Resort is a beautifully rustic enclave that provides five star luxury within a two million year-old rainforest, and includes the award-winning Spa Village; a spa that combines the healing arts of India, China and Malaysia into a therapeutic offering that was voted by the readers of Condé Nast as being the world’s best.

Nearby in a small cove, accessible only by private vehicle, eight secluded estates have been created – three resting on the beautiful waterfront of Marina Bay, allowing visitors the pleasure of a private beach; whilst the others are designed to blend seamlessly into the jungle on the hillside – overlooking the ocean, and offering absolute and total privacy.

These individually crafted enclaves reflect traditional South East Asian estates comprising a number of special purpose buildings scattered amidst gardens of astounding beauty. A private chef is assigned to every Estate preparing each meal to cater for individual taste and dietary requirements; while a personal butler is at hand to make all arrangements and to oversee the smooth running of these exclusive hideaways.

In essence, the environment harks back to a time when an Estate was a refuge, a place of contemplation, a place for family, where one took leisurely strolls through the garden, from the personal house to the dining house, from the lounge pavilion to the bath house, from the private massage pavilion to the pool. 

Location and Transfers

Transport to the island is comfortable and quick as The Estates’ helicopters fly between Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Kuala Lumpur and Pangkor Laut; or the island can be reached by taking a limousine from the city to the village of Lumut, then boarding the YTL Lady, a luxurious motor yacht that brings guests directly to the island.


Each individual space is thoughtfully crafted to provide refined elegance and luxurious comfort. Intricate interior details accent the otherwise informal design which emphasises ease and function. Polished tropical hardwood floors are accented by textured fabrics that add warmth to the elegant bedrooms with their podium beds; whilst bathrooms and vanity areas are wonderfully spacious, and crafted with fine attention to detail.

Each and every individual Estate is a unique experience – tailored to blend comfortably and stylishly into its natural environment. There is an outline of each of the eight estates below but, for advice on the best property to suit your needs, please call us.
