Tiger Rock
Reviewed 6 December 2017

Highly recommended by famous travelogues aplenty and exclusively selected as one of my favourite top three resorts in Pangkor (other than the Pangkor Laut Resort & Pangkor Island Resort), my recent staycation at the boutique TIGER ROCK resort turned out to be a magnificent experience relishing like a rajah in a rainforest resort pampered and showered with lots of tender luxuriant comfort in a palatial mansion complete with attentive, patient and meticulous hospitality from Mr Mohan the learned owner (formerly a marine biologist from Setiu) married to Mdm Bavanni the endearing resident chef (from KL) dishing out a cornucopia of fusion Indian cuisine full board in generous & sedaplicious servings from the tiny resort kitchen / restaurant beside the navy blue tile swimming pool nestled amidst the dense tropical foliage at the southern tip of Pangkor island accessed via a narrow, winding but inconspicuous slip road just beside the Dutch Fort (Kota Belanda) only a stone throw away from the namesake sacred legendary Tiger Rock enclosed within a pavilion near the new floating mosque.

Check in to check out the Main House with the cosy and colourful bedroom via a huge walkthrough wardrobe room and ensuite bathroom overspilling onto the verandah engulfed by the surrounding jungle with interstitial glimpses of Pangkor Strait below which is situated an enormous rustic multiple split level combo space of living cum dining area plus kitchen modified and built upon pristine gigantic granite boulders rambling down to a library / DVD / antique room all cluttered with countless curios and fronted by an enviously scenic balcony / patio overlooking the entire premises.

Room Tip: Main House (as aforementioned)

Tiger Rock is nicely located in Pangkor island, providing nice environment for relaxing and is nicely distanced from the main road.

The staff is very friendly and I really felt like home. Food is awesome and one of the best I've had so far.

Thanks for the warm experience!

All plaudits deserved and this is a lovely place. Don’t come expecting a typical five star since this is a collection of delightful cabins, huts and small cottages (call them what you will) in the jungle. Life centres on the kitchen and dining room next to the pool where, as everybody else rightly says, the food is terrific.

We wanted to eat seafood for lunch and dinner and duly go it – beautifully cooked. We thought we’d want to go to the beach (and did once), but the pool in the jungle was so compelling it kept us there very contentedly. Service – terrific throughout by Mohan and his team, with all sorts of lovely little touches (like the beach towels, mat and bottled water) put out ready for the beach.

No downsides, although internet in the bedrooms would be nice (I wanted to read the paper online looking out over the jungle). The hotel website could also do with some attention since it doesn’t do the hotel justice – some better photos would help.

I just experienced a wonderful 3 days 2 nights yoga retreat held at Tiger Rock. So quiet , private and away from the crowds. So grateful for another peaceful experience.

Mohan and his team are indeed so warm, eager to make your stay a complete one with warm n sincere smiles and plenty of good homecooked food made with care n love. Thank you to everyone from the bottom of my heart.

The bedrooms were spacious n homey n pretty with Rebecca Wilkinson s touches. Nature and nurture goes hand in hand in harmony I would summarise this awesome stay.


Room Tip: if u want a good view room the upper left room on the hill has a good sunrise view

We had a very pleasant trip to Tiger Rock. It is a great place, private, serene, charming.
The service is the best part of the stay - as mentioned many times before in the reviews here. The staff are just unbelievably helpful and friendly. The food is sensational - our kids don't usually eat all the different Asian foods. At Tiger Rock the plates were licked clean!

So why not 5 stars? Well, the place is 20 years old and the main house, living room and dining area all feel a little 'tired'. The staff are aware of this, though, and I believe a renovation is around the corner.

All in all, warmly recommended!
