Pangkor Laut Resort was awarded the title of Asia’s Leading Wedding Venue at the recent World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony 2015, trumping hotel brands such as Four Seasons, Shangri-La and The Westin. Set on a privately owned island on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the world-renowned Pangkor Laut Resort offers unparallelled exclusivity for dream weddings against a two-million year old rainforest backdrop and pristine beaches with impeccable service standards.
Couples planning to tie the knot face difficulty deciding between three bespoke experiences offered at Pangkor Laut Resort; from exchanging vows and celebratory champagne aboard the sleek 65-footer YTL Lady I motor yacht, to a romantic candlelit setting in private garden pavilions by a koi-filled pond, serenaded by the resident band or the most sought after beach wedding ceremony at Emerald Bay, voted as One of the World’s Top 10 Beaches. For those seeking intimacy, eight exclusive Estates tucked away on a secluded bay and along a lush hillside offer the perfect setting for that special occasion.

This latest recognition reinforces the long list of accolades bestowed on this unique resort, also named as Number One In The World in the Top 100 List by Condé Nast Traveller, UK in the past.
The World Travel Awards are acknowledged worldwide as the most prestigious travel accolade and aim to reward organisations that push the boundaries of industry excellence. The awards programme features winners from six regional ceremonies who will progress to the Grand Final at the end of the year.
