Pankor Laut Hotel & Resort, Malaysia

Immortalized by Luciano Pavarotti & Lord Lichfield

Some 10 years ago, in March 1994, I was one of approximately 100 hand-picked guests who were invited to the opening of Pankor Laut - certainly one of the best hotels and resorts in Malaysia. When you need some time out from the everyday grind to rejuvenate yourself and get your life back on track, there can be no better destination. Here you will find just the essentials: Tranquility, nature, a gourmet chef and a wellness oasis. Incidentally their new spa, where you can indulge in massage, facials, wraps and a whole host of luxurious reviving treatments, has just been voted Spa of the Year by readers of Condé Nast Traveller Magazine.

Pankor Laut Island belongs to tycoon Sir Francis Yeoh who had organised a very special surprise for the inauguration. Thanks to his friendship with Luciano Pavarotti, the star-tenor was giving a private concert on the beach!

Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me and my friends, as well as the professional photo-shooting of Lord Lichfield. The Queen's cousin and legendary photographer produced a book on Malaysia during his stay on the island.

I also took advantage and filmed the magnificent resort which later was broadcast on my TV-programme 'Nathalie's Lifestyle' in Germany. Here you'll find my impressions about my holidays in Pankor Laut....
