At Pantai Puteri Dewi (Golden Sands beach) in Pulau Pangkor, near Teluk Dalam and the Pangkor Airport
The resort has undergone extensive renovation recently. Perhaps that coincides with the Pan Pacific hotel chain cease to be the hotel management company.
The resort area itself is extensive - from the security guard to the lobby can take about 10 minutes walk. Not to mention the mile-long beach fronting the resort as well as the golf course.
The Pacific Wing is a 4-storey hotel block overlooking the beach and has its own smaller swimming pool. The Ocean Wing is more luxury of these two wings, having their own balconies, open green area by the beach, and substantially larger swimming pool.
I stayed at an Ocean Wing room and paid about RM315 per night. The room was decent but I wasn't quite sure if it justifies the price. Occasionally Pangkor Island Beach Resort does come up with special offers for the public, especially during the low season.
Eating out was not too bad. Walk to the front security guard, where taxi vans were waiting to bring you to regular food stalls in Pantai Teluk Nipah or Pantai Pasir Bogak for RM10-15 per journey.
For avid snorkelers, there was some coral growth on the right end of the wide beach, near the beach bungalows called House on the Rock. Visibility was quite poor but the water was shallow and you could see a few things like small cockles and tiny table corals.
A nice resort to do nothing. The main selling point is probably the huge beach area.
