Island paradise
Really a fantastic and unforgettable place. Free daily activities were a massive bonus and should be taken advantage of as much as possible. Very friendly staff who go out their way to ensure your stay is a memorable one. Would not hesitate to recommend.

This was paradise. We booked the beach villa resort, which has access to our own private beach in front. Food was ok, the food bar was actually better than the restaurant's. We did room service as it was the same price to dine in. We also did the in room massage everyday. It was a decent price, half the cost as it would be here in the US. Although pricey, it shows in the service and access to the most beautiful places we've been. This is worth saving up.

Wonderful small luxury hotel in amazing location
The Pangulasian ranks with our favorite luxury resorts in French Polynesia, Thailand, and Hawaii. The location is in a beautiful collection of islands, all in a nature preserve. Amazing views everywhere you look. Take the included island hopping and lagoon tours for even more amazing sights. Lots of boating - you'll probably be on 3 of them before you even get there. Climb to the top of the island (hot, but not difficult hike) where a small observation tower provides 360-degree views of the islands. Staff is very friendly, very attentive, very good. Food was great, servings were large. Enjoyed a candlelight dinner on the beach. Lots of wildlife on the island, including monkeys and sea monitors. Nice beach, which we often had to ourselves. No views from our canopy "treehouse" room, but private with huge bath area. Pool bar serves good drinks and lunch items. Breakfast is a huge offering of many items - excellent. Pool is refreshing and perfectly maintained. This is an outstanding small luxury hotel in a fantastic location. It seems a little pricey until you factor in what your are getting and where you are. It is worth every cent. Property is very well maintained and fits into the location. Fresh fruit in room and small treats at night were nice touches. Room and amenities were excellent. Take beach shoes for boat trips and plenty of insect repellant - you are in the jungle! Couldn't think of any useful suggestions for improvement - awesome as is.

Paradise Found!
My wife and I were originally hesitant about staying at Pangulasian given the high price point and the relative remoteness of its location. Wow, were we glad we took the gamble! We have stayed at several different five star boutique hotels in SE Asia and Pangulasian sets the standard for private luxury. The entire resort is tastefully designed and maintained to even the most discerning eyes. The resort is quite spacious, so much so it was as if we had the entire island and resorts facilities to ourselves. The quality of the food and drinks was excellent, and we thought the pricing was quite fair given the private setting ($10 burgers, $3 beers, etc.). Our beach villa was massive and opened up immediately to the gorgeous beach and surroundings (and complementary water sport activities). The service was incredibly attentive and thoughtful, without being overbearing at all. If you're looking for a bustling nightlife or an array of dining options, pick a different island. If you're looking for the absolute best in boutique luxury in paradise, look no further than Pangulasian. There is no way you would leave disappointed.
