My wife and I just finished our Malaysian vacation, and by far the best place we stayed at was Nipah Guesthouse! The A-Frame cottages are super charming and unique. The reason that makes Nipah Guesthouse so wonderful is the owners, Alicia and Anuar (and their little girl Aila). You can tell right away that they are passionate about what they do and that they take great measures to make your stay ideal. They keep the place extremely clean and well maintained, and they are constantly improving on amenities, landscaping, services etc. The brand new pool and sun deck lounge area were greatly appreciated. They are also always present to help with advices for visiting the island, restaurants, transportation, and just having a chat in general.
The place is only a 5 minute walk to the beach, and 10 minute walk to Coral Beach (which is a bit more quiet and pictoresque). We booked online (reserved with my credit card) and Alicia was always very punctual in responding to my many questions, always responding immediately the same day).
The "cook it yourself breakfast" is a fun original idea, and also gives the oppurtinuty to meet and talk with the other guests (unlike the resorts where everybody goes about their own private business).
Another "bonus" of the place, is that right next door a local man feeds bananas to the hornbills everyday at 6:30, and you can feed them too! I lost count at 30 hornbills!!
All in all, I was so happy with Nipah Guesthouse that I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on Pangkor (unless of course they were full, of which I would propably change my vacation dates!!!)
