When asked, “When would be your honeymoon?”
I would say, “Next year”
This sounds a little too long, we thought. While waiting for our flight next year, Chris suggested that we go for a “Mini Moon” instead 🙂
Honeymoon, “described the period just after the wedding when things are at their sweetest” says wiki
It should also be a period of time to build a stronger and more intimate relationship with your other half plus a self reward for both, after a long run wedding planning.
So meanwhile, let’s go somewhere nearer!!
We really need some relaxation after our wedding. We need nothing but tenderness and pleasure 🙂
Giving ourselves a pat on the back agreeing we need indulgence and pampered with nature, we chose Pangkor Laut Resort. It’s definitely a great choice for honeymooners who are just available for shorter trips due to hectic lifestyles. And for locals, what’s great is that YTL offers the Residents’ Package.
Residents’ Package – priced at approximately RM1,200 per pax
- From two nights’ accommodation
- Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner with complimentary coffee, tea and mineral water served during meals, for every night of stay
- Return scheduled boat transfers from Marina Island Pangkor
A minimum stay of two nights is required.
- Daily meals included in the package consist of:
- Two breakfasts at Feast Village
- Two 2-course lunches at Royal Bay Beach Club or Chapman’s Bar
- Two dinners at Uncle Lim’s Kitchen, Feast Village or The Straits
We opted for the Hill Villa overlooking the beautiful emerald sea, lapped by gentle waves.
Away from the bustling agendas, it was our natural sanctuary for the next 3 days. A private paradise for intimacy & privacy!
At the waiting area of Marina Island @ Lumut, waiting for our boat transfer
It was just a 15 minutes journey to Pangkor Laut Resort.
The jetty leading into the island
They provide excellent & memorable service. We were greeted with smiles and ushered to the lobby with grace.
Wet hankies, Welcome drinks, & island briefings were offered attentively.
Here’s our villa on top of the hill.
Staying up the hill warrants a serene and an age-old wilderness woven together
Being so thoughtful, they even remembered Chris mentioned we were newly-weds at the jetty
Oh, I’m Mrs Chris Lee now by the way *haha*

Some salt for your tub? Perfect.
View from the balcony
After a round of “room appreciation” we proceed for lunch at the Royal Bay Beach Club.
Royal Bay Beach Club (LUNCH)
The restaurant overlook the infinity pool serves a selection of Asian and Western favourites for lunch. In the evening, the restaurant will transform into a chic chill-out lounge serving cocktails and other beverages. You can ignore the price actually. It’s included in the package.
Mushroom Salad – RM45
Portobello mushrooms on a bed of arugula, served with warm creamy egg dressing. One of the best salad we had, we swear 🙂
Club Burger – RM45
Half a pound of ground, seasoned choice beef, served on a sesame seed bun with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, beef bacon, deep fried onion rings & french fries. The patty was bagged with the correct juiciness and flavoured cleverly.
Holsteiner Schnitzel – RM45
Light pan-fried, breaded chicken escalope topped with a fried egg
Chris’s daily cuppa – black coffee
They said this is “the best coffee on the island”.
We were kinda reluctant to agree on that *gasp*
Double scoops of ice cream
Brisk walk around the island after the hearty lunch
The Garden Villas
Checking out nature
The bats on tree
We love their library. apart from neat shelves, it was also adorned with private huts and open are with huge sofas for the holidayers.
You can everywhere.
Note: FREE Wifi at the library 🙂
Uncle Lim’s Kitchen
A spherical layed-out restaurant built on top a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea. It was named after the chef who has been with the Resort since its inception.
Uncle Lim’s specialises in Nyonya and Hockchew Chinese-style home cooking. All dishes are inspired by the unique products available locally, and made to each guest’s individual tastes and requirements. Craving for exotic flavours of the East? Here’s where you should try.
Calamansi Chicken – RM75
Chunks of chicken deepfried until crispy, sprinkled with sesame seeds and served with a tangy sweet calamansi lime sauce.
Uncle Lim’s Aromatic Style Fifh (Whole fish) – RM140
Steamed on banana leaves with lemongrass, imparting a delicious fragrance – their signature favourite
Uncle Lim’s Fantasy Prawns – RM85
Tiger prawns stir fried with a delectable black bean sauce – an uncle lim’s specialty
Banana Fritters – RM25
Sweet local bananas deep fried until golden, served with a dallop of vanilla ice cream
Didn’t manage to snap a picture of this in time. Credits to iamthewitch.com
Avocado Cream with Citrus Pearls – RM25
Chilled cream of fresh avocado topped with orange flavoured tapioca pearls – a refreshing favourite
A night walk back to our room was later surprised with a Flower Bath beautified with candles prepared just for us as a token of congratulatory 🙂
Time to take a dip! ♥ ♥ ♥
NOTE: A gentle reminder for those who would opt to stay at the hill. Please ensure all doors are locked as you wouldn’t want these mischievous monkeys turn your room upside down. Even the staffs here sometimes have a hard time doing room cleaning. Oops.
