Tiger Rock totally lives up to its promises and the reviews. We arrived on Christmas Day and were very looked after from being met at the ferry terminal at Lumut and helped across to Pangkor on what was a very busy day! Avoid travelling on Sundays on bank holidays - the queue for the ferry was horrendous. We were relieved to arrive in one piece with our luggage. The rooms are indeed a bit of a walk up the hill but Mohan was happy to drive anyone who couldn't face the walk. I was glad of the walk given the huge amounts of food served - please less food next time! It was all delicious so hard to resist. Everytging was perfect - we had hornbills flying over the pool and had a close encounter with a wild boar on the way back to our room. Not sure I would recommend the local massage - it was a bit odd having it on the floor in the library which is a common area...The man who brought the masseuse up to the resort hung around a bit and I literally had to make it plain that his presence was not required.
It is a special place and the staff were all delightful - would highly recommend it. We were all given Christmas presents as well as we arrived on Dec 25th which I thought was a particularly sweet gesture. Many thanks Mohan and team - all the best for 2012.
