Pangkor Laut Resort - Day 1

Daalin and I spent the last 3 days on a private island. Every year, we go away on an annual honeymoon for our wedding anniversary. Since I will be in confinement during our anniversary this year, we decided to go earlier while I can still travel.

The drive to Lumut was pleasant and took just 3 hours. We used the new KL-Kuala Selangor highway and then the west coast road.

Upon arrival at the Pangkor Laut Resort office, we were served a cool welcome drink and then waited in air-conditioned comfort. The waiting room also had computers and newspaper to keep you occupied while you wait.

Just before 11am, we were escorted to the ferry which is actually a speedboat. It was really clean and had life jackets for everyone.

Half and hour later, we arrived at Pangkor Laut where we were greeted by name and escorted to the lobby. The friendly staff greeted us with cold towels and cool drinks.

The friendly staff who greeted us then escorted us to the Royal Bay Beach Club where we had our lunch.

For starters, I had the Caesar Salad...

...while Daalin had the wok-fried prawn and smoked salmon salad.

My main course was the Alaskan Salmon Burger.

Daalin had the Royal Club Sandwich.

And for dessert I had the Black Forest Mousse...

...while Daalin had the Soy-milk Panna Cotta with mixed fruits.

Our stomachs full, we made our way back to the lobby and then we were escorted to our Garden Villa.

Our luggage was already in the room. And since we requested for the ground floor unit, (coz I'm too lazy to lug my belly upstairs) we had an open-air oversized bath.

After a afternoon snooze, we took the shuttle to the western side of the island to Emerald Bay - supposedly amongst the top 10 beaches in the world.

After a beautiful sunset, we made our way back to Feast Village for our dinner.

Again, it's a 3-course meal. Daalin had the Grilled Chicken and Pear salad for starters.

I had the Seafood Chowder.

Daalin had the Baked Grouper for his main course.

While I had the Loin of Lamb.

Daalin's dessert was the Pandan Creme Caramel.

I had the Chocolate Mousse.

And then we retreated into our Garden Villa for a good night's sleep.
