Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 27 Hotels in Pangkor
Reviewed 23 April 2011

After travelling round Malaysia for 10 days, and seeing the F1 Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur, we wanted a beach stay for a few days which wasn't too far from KL. I found out about Pangkor Island by chance, it's not on the main tourist trail and doesn't really appear in any of the guidebooks. It's a 3hr drive from KL (which was appealing to me as I don't really like flying). I chose Sandy Beach as it looked the newest accom option and had some good reviews.
I was not disappointed. After a long 5hr bus journey (the bus stand in KL had moved during refurbishments, adding an extra 2hrs onto our journey), and a boat ride we arrived tired and weary at the resort. It was spotlessly clean and staff were friendly and efficient checking us in.
We were shown our beach chalet which was also very clean and just perfect for what we wanted. A/C, fridge, complimentary water, tea & coffee and a big comfy bed! We couldnt wait to dump our bags down and explore.
The chalet is a stone's throw away from Pasir Bogak beach which has the most stunning sunsets, although the best beach for sunbathing and swimming is Coral Beach (just north of Nipah Beach) which can be reached by taxi costing RM 10 (about £2).
The restaurant attached to the resort was ok, but wasn't very busy other than at breakfast, although we had lunch their on our arrival and it done the job.
The proprietor of the resort is very friendly and chatty, and would always enquire how our stay was and whether we needed anything done. it's a new resort and he is keen for it to be successful, so it's a very personal service, something you wouldn't receive at a larger resort.
We didn't use the swimming pool as we prefer the beaches, but it looked clean and there were always people with kids enjoying it.

We hired scooters for the day and drove round the island, there's only one road that goes right the way round. It was a great drive in the blazing sunshine, although there were a couple of steep bends to maneouver so be careful if you do decide to do this. We arranged the bikes from the resort at RM 50 per day (£10).

Overall we had a great stay at Pangkor Sandy Beach, better than expected. The resort really wants to please it's customers and you wont want for anything while you['re there. Pangkor itself is a lovely little island and I was actually shocked how quiet it was in comparison with the other islands we'd visited. If the Malaysian Government wanted this on the tourist trail it could attract thousands more visitors, although maybe they dont want this island to go the same way as Langkawi.

Room Tip: hire scooters to explore the island
