Nipah Guesthouse Pangkor Island
The small Nipah Guesthouse is located at the back side of Nipah bay, 2 minutes walk from the beach. It's a relatively new guesthouse, opened only in late 2009.
To be honest, Nipah Guesthouse is small (although extension is on the way! What does Annuar and his wife offer?

I visited early January 2011 to find out. The Nipah Guesthouse offers very clean comfortable rooms. The Deluxe Chalet has aricon and TV while the guesthouse offers aircon and TV in the common room. On the wall they have placed some very nice ink drawings they found on the street market in Malacca! (I told them I would love to obtain them which they refused!).
The Deluxe Chalets have attached bathrooms and TV.
Nipah Guesthouse has a full board package available (per pax with a minimum of 20 px)
The guesthouse offers additional services
Although dinner is normally not served, it is possible to arrange dinner at the beach. The cool part here is that either Mr. Annuar or his wife will join you to the local market in Pangkor Town to sort out the ingredients. You will buy them and BBQ them either at the beach or at the guesthouse. Should you want to arrange a dinner like this, there's a minimum of 5 people required.

Like many of the hotels/guesthouses at Pangkor, Nipah Guesthouse is frequently visited by the local hornbills. Mr. Annuar feeds them with bread and fruits.

Teluk Nipah/Nipah Bay
Teluk Nipah, or Nipah bay is a favorite for many travelers to Pangkor. Not surprising with the beach and Coral Bay next door.
The beach is even more ideal for families with children or for those who seek solitude and an afternoon undisturbed at the beach.
Chalets at Pangkor
Many island in Malaysia offer chalets. It's a great deal, no doubt. As I have to stay every once in a while at Pangkor (even though I live nearby in Sitiawan) I always prefer chalets over hotel rooms.
It's certainly not because the hotel rooms are not nice but hey.. if you can get a chalet for the same price as a hotel room... I know what to choose...
