From the moment we arrived at the resort we were treated like royalty. I'm not sure if it was because I am pregnant or because we are residents, but we were given upgrades, discounts at the spa, private dining and told by the resort manager to email her when we come back and they will upgrade us again! Wow, I hope I didn't blow all of our upgrade karma for the future, but this weekend was pretty good.

Not only did we spend a lot of time in our villa, we enjoyed the private spa pool, the great beach and the luxurious spa. Generally, we are not ones to splurge on expensive spa treatments at resorts, but after several friends recommended a treatment and the resort threw in some discounts, we decided to ring in the Year of the Snake with a nice massage. I enjoyed an amazing pregnancy massage, while Eric had a traditional Balinese massage. The spa at Pangkor Laut has won numerous awards including the Best Spa in Malaysia. It was, by far, the nicest spa experience I had ever had. Well worth the extra money that we spent on it and a great way to pamper yourself. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our short stay so much that we tried to extend another night. It was quiet, relaxing and so nice that we did not want to leave. Unfortunately, the resort was full, so we will have to make another trip back to this fabulous resort!
