I remembered passing by this island (Pangkor Laut, the tiny island next to Pangkor island) as a teen on a motor-boat along with other tourists while the tour guide boasted about the magnificence and exclusivity of this island resort.
Fast forward ten years (or more), I was spending a chilling 3D2N on this island in the resort last weekend. And while I was lazing by the pool one day, I saw a boat with tourists slowing down and eventually stopping in front of the sea chalets before zooming off.
Some things never change.
I didn't have the pleasure to stay in the sea villa, but the hill villa did offer a splendid view.
I woke up the third day from the moaning sound of my neighbor (50 year old guy, mind you) making love to his wife.
You could probably get more privacy from the sea villas (opt for the bigger ones). My verdict: sea villa, or nothing. Unless, you know, peeping's your thing.
Normally hey don't offer room service here (which is strange, perhaps it's because it's a long walk from the restaurant to the hill villas).
