This is where I am right now – Pangkor Laut Resort, a privately owned 300-acre island three miles off the west coast of Malaysia in the Straits of Malacca.
It is comprised entirely of one luxury hotel with pools, bars and extremely large grounds. About 80 per cent of the island is still untouched nature, including 2 million-year-old rainforest, so it is a bit like a national park but with really nice accommodation and a great spa.
When I arrived, I recovered from the rigours of a 15-minute boat journey with a four-course Japanese lunch, followed by five hours being bathed and scrubbed and massaged, but more on that when I come out of my spa trance.
Meanwhile, I am not hot and itchy at all. And after lobster barbecue on the beach yesterday evening, I am definitely not hungry.
