Day 1: The girl gang land in KL for a quick stopover. Luxe crashpad Hotel Stripes is our home for
the night and we’re in awe of the amazing cityscape from the rooftop infinity pool.

Day 2: We arrive via speedboat at Pangkor Laut Resort – a beautiful, private-island escape with
stunning villas dotted across the hillside and over the water.

Day 3: Sunrise yoga on the beach to start the day, followed by a hectic schedule which includes
falling out of hammocks, a very lazy lunch, and sunbathing under the dappled shade of palm trees
on the pristine beach we have all to ourselves – blissful.

Day 4: Today is dedicated to Pangkor Laut’s amazing spa. “Our spa isn’t just a place, it’s a philosophy”
they tell us, and after a sublime holistic spa experience, encompassing tea rituals, traditional Malaysian
bath house rituals and aromatherapeutic treatments based in Chinese healing, we couldn’t agree more.

Day 5: The highlight of today is definitely the sunset cruise, allowing us a different perspective of the
island as we cruise out on a traditional teakwood Oriental junk. Hand-shaken cocktails are served
as we watch the stars appear in the darkening sky and are accompanied on our way by shoals of cute
needlefish.

Day 6: Our last day, and we’re so sad to be heading back to reality, but watching the monkeys jump
from palm to palm in the lush jungle that fringes the island takes our minds off it. A sunset dinner on
the deck overlooking the crystalline waters is the perfect end to our trip.
