Marina Island is a pristine island positioned in the vicinity of Pulau Pangkor, Perak. Marina Sanctuary Resort was given the right to reclaim the island in the year 1999. However, the developer only managed to start reclaiming the island in the year 2003 after further discussion.
Apart being just a regular township, Marina Island is expected to be a tourist destination in its own and it is expected to reduce the jetty ride to Pangkor Island from 40 minutes to merely 10 minutes. Marina Island is set to complement the island by providing world-class facilities rather than being build to rival the existing island.
Among its attempt to become a tourist hotspot, the developer has planned to build a bird park, a water theme park, beach and lagoon, summer camps, commercial shops, convention centre, commercial shops, oyster park, food bazar, bus terminal, jetty complex, fish market, marina, yacht club, international jetty, custom and immigration as well as an international hotel.
Marina Island comes with numerous plans which is yet to be implemented and among the development which might took place in this island are residential area, villa / bungalow, condominium, semi detached, terrace and also serviced apartment. Three of the residences in Marina Island have been launched at the moment. Two of the projects are completed and the third one is still under construction. Laguna 1 @ Marina Island is a serviced apartment which was completed in the year 2008 and also a total of 170 units were offered in this residence.
Laguna 2 @ Marina Island was launched later as well as was completed at the the end of 2013. This residence offers a sum of 204 units of vacation apartment. At the same time, Tiara Bay @ Marina Island is an exclusive bungalow and terrace development which are scheduled for completion by 2017. The entire Marina Island is designed in a specific way to reduce erosion and also the 43 acres of man made lagoon, together with a stretch of man made white sand beach should be something which is not to be missed by investors. Marina Island is only 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur via the North – South Highway.
