Pulau Pangkil is an exclusive tropical island resort located off the South Eastern corner of Bintan Island, Indonesia. Pulau Pangkil is a private island paradise within easy reach of Singapore – perfectly suited for family week-ends or reunions, birthday parties, corporate team-building events, weddings and couples looking for a romantic getaway. Its beauty, simplicity and ambiance – together with personalized service and good food have made it extremely popular over the past decade.
‘Pulau’ means ‘island’ and ‘Kecil’ means ‘small’ in Indonesian. When you hire Pangkil you get everything: all the driftwood palaces (our luxury accommodation), the bar, the sound system, the pool, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, speedboats, kitchen, and more than twenty staff to provide you with excellent service. Imagine “Survivor with maids and butlers”.
There are six “driftwood palaces” constructed entirely from logs salvaged from the sea. Four have 2 king-sized beds and the other two have one king-sized bed each. Electric fans are provided in all rooms, as are linens, towels, and mosquito nets. Each house has a flushing toilet and shower next door. There is a tree house for an adventurous couple or singleton. Pangkil can accommodate between 10 and 30 people in stunning comfort catered for by a staff of more than 20.
As your eyes are being satisfied by the beautiful sights in the island, Pulau Pangkil will keep your stomachs full with their sumptuous dining delights! Three meals a day are included*. Their menu manages to cater to everyone’s palate. Guests may choose where and when they prefer to dine.
