A private beach resort located in Lumut, Perak and most of the time referred to as a beach resort of Pangkor. Heard plenty of good things about the beautiful beach and it was certainly true. So what was the unexpected experience?

The lobby at the resort provided me a first impression that it’s going to be a wonderful experience since the view from the lobby was simply beautiful. Booked a sea-view room, so expected more from that as well. Once I stepped into the room, the ‘Unexpected Experience’ began! The room was old, dark and Smelly! Toilet had piss smell all over it which polluted the whole room. I almost puked when i got into the toilet and also it was really small. So i decided to bare with it for the night (only 35% of me said bare with it) and this decision later changed when I saw a freaking group of flies on the bed! Here we go for more hygiene issues! Immediately went to the counter and requested for a replacement room and even said that I wouldn’t mind paying extra. There was a simple answer by the receptionist for my two concerns which was smelly toilet and also flies! She said “The smell is due to the water and not urine, and the flies issue is not avoidable since it is due to flies concern around the district”. She said it would be the same experience on any rooms. Well seriously? WTF? Decision was made immediately, head over to the beach and check out few hours later after the sunset.

So headed over to the beach and seriously, it was amazing. It was clean and a perfect dip in the sea. There are some activities which can be done, but I tried none due to still being off-mood. The greenery and walk to the beach was also a good experience. There is also a swimming pool which kids would love and it is also surrounded by some restaurants and stalls. It was alright. The sunset view is a must, it was beautiful. I just missed the night view of the place since I had to check out!

Here are some shots from the Resort:

To be honest, the Private Beach is an amazing experience and a must visit to everyone. You can’t go wrong with that. I am very doubtful about the stay as my experience seems to be the same of many others as per TripAdvisor. So would i recommend it? A big ‘NO’. If you are able to talk the security guard at the entrance to let you in (without having to stay), then you will enjoy it!
