The Meritus Pelangi Resort & Spa”
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Pelangi in Langkawi. What we got for the price was an amazing deal, with a huge deluxe room which could actually sleep 5, overlooking one of the pretty ponds in the huge resort. On arrival we were picked up in a buggy and driven to our chalet - lovely malay style houses. The room was enormous, much bigger than we expected with a huge queensize bed, a single bed and a double sofa bed. Perfect if u want to all stay as a family too. Staff were all very attractive and friendly! The breakfast was the best Ive ever had, everything you could possibly imagine was there! Of course, you are right on the beach which is a very long public beach. You dont have the privacy of say the Datai Hotel, but it is equally nice to get out of the resort and eat in different local restaurants along Pantai Cenang. There are some fairly good seafood restaurants, as well as others serving italian, mexican, indian, you name it they have it. Compared to Penang's Batu ferrenghi which I would say is spoilt now due to so many highrise hotels, Pantai Cenang is more sedate and still has a local feel to it, not just a tourists playground which i much preferred. I would definitely go and stay at the Pelangi again.
Perfect location, chalets and facilities”
My trip to Langkawi should be one of my memorable trips ever, thanks to Meritus Pelangi. I almost did not make it to this report because I had to deal with some schedule mixed up at school but the hotel was nice enough to accommodate my request for change in booking date. I am very happy that I was able to visit Langkawi and stay in Meritus. The staff were really warm. From the moment we arrived in the hotel, we felt very secured and everything was so convenient. The lobby as also big and beautiful. Meanwhile, In-room dining was fast and our little requests were heeded quite urgently. Loved the big serving of the breakfast too. We stayed in a room that is spacious and got to wake up for 4 days with a view of the lake which is right in the middle of the resort. The beach in front of Pelangi was enormouse too. The location is just 10 minutes away from the airport and many restaurants in Pantai Cenang can be reached on foot from the resort. There are also two pools. Many birds also roam the resort, adding to the already nice ambiance. All in all, we would love to go back to this hotel and I believe it is worth saving for. :)

An amazing place to stay at..”
Our stay at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi was an excellent experience. It was our first stop on our honeymoon trip so we were a bit mindful about the place and all of it amenities and services. But to our pleasant surprise, the place was wonderful. All the process from checking-in to checking-out was done extremely smoothly and in a professional manner. Staff at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi was specialized, helpful and really caring. I can not recall any moment of problem or irritation during my 03 night – 04 days stay there. I would highly recommend this place to stay especially for honey-mooners.. One again thanks a lot to all team at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi for making our honeymoon memorable.
Booked during MCO (Lockdown) deal. Initially booked another renouned place but they informed they will charge RM44 per head per day for breakfast and without veg option. Being vegetarian I was very particular to ask the question. Booked Pelangi based on my friend suggestion and this was best recommended. I booked at very less price.. I heard the price I paid is only around 25% than normal booking price. Booked with breakfast and mentioned for veg option. They promptly responded well ensure. Booked for 3 nights. Checked in on time as my flight was aligned to check in time. Before I went and parked my car, they ensured my mom is made confortable with a welcome drink. Made her sit in a wonderful welcome area.. This showed great hospitality. Was allocate a room that was so big that it was almost like my house living room. Washroom plus change area itself was so huge that it was like a room of a budget hotel. Full of greenary and very spacious had a great sit out area. Sit out was facing swimming pool, couple of chalet and beach was beach was visible. Resort had private entrance to beach with lots of beach bench and relaxing chairs. Breakfast was really good. To our surprise when we checked in, Chef Shan came and spoke to us. Asked our food preference and ensured every breakfast had veg food. He also came every morning and enquired about food and wellbeing. Lockdown SOP are absolutely followed. They have few buggy cars which helps us go around resort and from room to car park and vice versa. It will be less to say worth the money... More than worth. Great property are right place - pantai cenang. Will stay here again if I get opportunity to book at similar price in future All staffs were wonderful. Highly recommended
Dear Mr. Gokulakrishnan, Thank you for your rating and compliments. Your feedback will be shared with our team and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Best regards, Maygie
This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in Malaysia. The people are beautiful and the service is excellent. My family and myself stayed at Langkawi for a week and had the time of our lives. The hotel is immensly clean, the food is great and the service is top shelf. Every request was seen to immediately and staff went above and beyond the call of duty. This is an excellent hotel, close to the small shops and easy life, right on beautiful Pantai Cenang beach. I would definitely reccomend that if you go to Langkawi you stay at the Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa.
Lovely hotel and great location”
Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, Langkawi is a world of ethnic charm inspired by a Malaysian traditional village concept along a kilometre stretch of white sandy beaches. Covering an area of 35 acres on a beachfront location, the Resort offers a relaxing atmosphere amidst lush tropical environment and award winning landscaped gardens. Designed to depict a leisurely kampong or village lifestyle, there are 51 single and double-storey wooden chalets featuring sloping roofs, exposed roof tiles and trusses, scattered across landscaped gardens alongside sandy beaches. Facilities include an array of F&B options specialising in Malay traditional cuisine, authentic Chinese, Western favourites and Thai dishes as well as fresh barbeque delights by the beachfront. This is one of the best hotel in Langkawi
My family spent six wonderful days in Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa. The two way transfer service was well arranged. We were welcomed by the hotel personnel, served us with fruit punch and explained about the resort to us with the resort map. We had a pool view terrace. It was fantastic to be greeted by the beautiful pool every morning. The location of the resort was perfect, near Cenang Beach and all the street shops and restaurants. The buggy service was efficient. We booked our Mangrove tour from the resort's recreation counter. We were treated like Super VIPs during the tour. A nice comfy car came to pick us from the hotel in the morning. They catered a private boat for my family and arranged yummy lunch for us on a floating fish farm. My children had a fabulous time at the dinosaur playground pool too. They played and swam everyday. The Cba Restaurant was a relax place to chill out with the kids at night. The staff and singers were friendly and approachable. It would be good if they could serve finger food in Cba restaurant at night. The food in Spice Market was simply Marvalous. A good spread of breakfast to kick start our day. We enjoyed the BBQ dinner, lots of food selection. With the help from the manager, he recommended us a bottle of Pinot Noir. It was a perfect vacation for us! Singapore
I very much enjoyed my time at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa. From the Meritus I hired a bicycle to explore Pantai Cenang and being able to ride to Bon Ton Restaurant was a lovely day out. Though I was travelling by myself I didn't feel uncomfortable when dining at the BBQ Restaurant as the staff there made me feel most welcome without being too intrusive. I had a massage, body scrub and facial at the spa and this really put me in a relaxing mood for my holiday; Ros is a very good massause!! Overall a lovely time with my room being quiet, peaceful and private enough for me relax quietyly when I wanted, and then move to the pool area and bar when I wanted to be out and about.
Truly lives up to its designation as Beach Resort”
Meritus Pelangi lived up to all our expectations. The design and decor of this Beach Resort is absolutely fantastic. The location is great and very close to the Underwater World Langkawi, as well as a small strip with restaurants and local shops. Also, this Resort is only about 15-20 minutes away from Langkawi Intl. Airport. The Pool facilities were amazing, especially the splash pad and play area for children. My 2 children just didn't want to leave the splash pad and play area and we would literally have to drag them out of there! The buffet breakfast spread that we enjoyed everyday was absolutely spectacular. The variety and quality of available choices was top notch. We looked forward to the breakfast every day and missed it tremendously once we left Langkawi for Kuala Lumpur. Although our room was comfortable and spacious, we encountered one problem with our room: Bats! For 2 nights in a row, we discovered Bats flying in our room above our heads. Somehow, the Bats had entered the room either through gaps in the ceiling or through the terrace/balcony doors which didn't align properly leaving a gap from where these creatures crept into our room. Even though housekeeping was promptly dispatched to catch these Bats we still had to experience them for the 2 nights prior to our checkout. I only wish that Meritus Pelangi had given us either a discount or an upgrade due to this issue, as it made our last 2 nights somewhat uncomfortable and unpleasant especially given that we had very young children staying with us in our room.
I am your return guest and almost every time I'm in Langkawi will make a point to at least stay there for a night even if I stayed in other hotels/resort. Pelangi Beach Resort keep up the good work and great hospitality and for those who wants to stay there do not hesitate but to choose them if you want to buat in Cenang, from check in to check out never ever have i had bad experience . Been there since the late 80's or was it early 90's since small with my parents till now with my own family. Great job Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi and keep up the good work. Till we meet again!
Dear Ms Zaihani, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Looking forward on welcoming you back to Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, Langkawi. Kind regards Praba
Lovers of sun, sand and pampering will have found their Eden in the Meritus on Pelangi Beach. Further, Langkawi is relatively untouched, allowing for a true island resort experience. The hotel's guest rooms are delightful huts of roughly 4 rooms spread right along Pelangi Beach, giving great views of the beach, pool and lilly pad studded lakes whilst allowing for optimum privacy and tranquility. Something for everybody, activities include tennis, miniature golf, water sports and spa pampering. Of course, those of us content with good old beach lounging are not disappointed with plenty of room to spread out along the beach, pool side and beach side service, every guest has an almost exclusively private piece of sand and water.
It's the People That Will Make You Come Back”
This is possibly the most satisfying stay I've ever had in Langkawi. Meritus Pelangi is a gem of a resort at one end of Pantai Cenang, meaning it's quite far from the crowd. The swimming pool is massive with a dedicated section for kids - our 2 year old had so much fun over the course of three days playing in the pool and the dinosaur slides. Credit has to be given to the staff - everyone was courteous and friendly who never fail to smile or give a simple "hello." The check-in was a breeze - Emily Foo handled everything impeccably and even helped me to scan a document needed to be e-mailed on that day itself. There's not much for us to complain about an almost perfect stay at Meritus Pelangi - as foodies, our only concern was the desserts at Cba needs to buckle up!
We will be back 😄”
After 3D2N at Meritus Pelangi, our family agreed that WE WILL BE BACK! It was a priceless experience from start to end. Check-in was a breeze, no queing, simply led to sit at the lounge while reception processed check-in, rode on a buggy to our beach front chalet. the room was fantastic, the super king size bed was more than enuf for me, hubby and my 2 gals. the view of the beach was awesome! the room may have seen better days but the wooden interior and classy and huge toilet made up for everything. The view of the clean beach and sunset/sunrise was such a precious part of our stay. The service was tip-top, staff always had a smile on their face.Location was fantastic, near the airport ( we were expecting lots of noise from the aeroplanes but it was minimal) and at the start of Cenang beach,the place to be for Food, shopping and water sports! we were spoilt for choice. The kids swimming pool was fun with slides and all, adults had a jacuzzi-like pool too and the water was NOT icy cold. Me and hubby even managed to squeeze a 2 hr spa session while the reliable baby-sitter provided by Meritus Pelangi at a VERY reasonable price minded the gals for us. Highly recommended resort for families with kids!
Fantastic resort with children friendly water playground.”
The resort is well located at the beginning of pantai cenang with easy access to the cenang area and and beach. what I liked about the resort is its friendly staff, the water playground for kids, the close proximity to the relatively quiet part of the beach and the buffet spread for food. The few things i feel the resort need to improve is the in door kids playground which is filled with old and dirty soft toys, worn slide and floor mats. The exorbitant price they charge for breakfast (74+ ringgit per pax) for simple breakfast fare if it is not included in the room price though kids eat for free. For comparison, there is a restaurant opposite the resort serving ala carte breakfast with prices starting at 7 ringgit and my family of four adults and one kiddo typically spends less than 200 ringgit per meal (lunch or dinner) at other restaurants in langkawi. Last complaint I have is the amount of ants in the rooms and I have frequently found ants on the bed even when the bed sheets have just been changed. Otherwise, we did enjoy ourselves in the resort, made more enjoyable by the friendly staff and I can tell that my 2 year old really enjoy the kids pool and the water playground.
An awesome resort for family”
I had no complains about the resort at all. The check in process was smooth and they allowed a late check out at 2pm without any extra charge. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and rendered excellent service at all times. The pool was great but the floor mat at the kids pool needs some maintenance. The buffet breakfast every morning was sumptuous with plenty of variety. We could just walk down to cenang beach from the resort. The resort is located in the prime location of pantai cenang where all the eateries, restaurants, massage parlours were nearby. The resort booking rates can be a little costly but I would recommend it to anyone who has kids as it is totally family oriented kinda resort. We totally enjoyed and will definitely be back to Meritus Pelangi Resort!!
great location and beach resort”
the hotel is ten minutes drive from the airport.We were upgraded to poolview room instead of lakeview room without asking the staff.We were very grateful because the room is spacious for our two kids .The beach is walking distance n very quiet n clean.we enjoyed swimming in the sea. The hotel provides delicious breakfast. There is a famous seafood restaurant nearby named orchid ria. It provides variety seafood with reasonable price. We loved to eat tiger prawns there.we enjoyed three days at pantai cenang. We highly recommended meritus pelangi resort to visitors.
Heavenly Resort with great facilities”
our stay at meritus pelangi beach resort was simply heavenly, with all the luxuries provided. it's private location on the cenang beach, sitting on the beach chairs and admiring the waves lash was an awesome experience. the large spread-out resort, with all types of facilities, gave each member in the family the freedom to pursue what they loved. the garden terrace built on a pond of water made us feel that we were living in another planet. also, the exclusivity that each room enjoys, provides the privacy to the extent you need. both the pools were awesome, and the gym has all the equipment that one would need to workout.
Wonderful hotel with lovely staff!”
booked meritus pelangi beach resort on agoda for price and comments on trip advisor. we got a great rate and the hotel looked beautiful. our expectations we completely met. we had adjoining rooms booked as we were traveling with family. our rooms were not ready by 4pm. when we inquired as to how long it would be our reservationist found us new, sea view rooms, which was an upgrade, and promptly had our bags taken over. the hotel is not new but they do a very good job keeping things very clean and tidy. the breakfast buffet was good. lots to choose from. the concierge was very helpful when we wanted to rent a van and helped us with directions to where we were headed. the beach is very clean, but make sure you wear beach shoes or flip flops as there are shells that can hurt a bit. down by the water line it is better. the beach stretches a long distance so you can do lots of beach combing. the restaurants nearby offer a wide variety of foods but seafood take precedence. prices are set for the tourist sect but the food is good and you can walk from the hotel. all in all i would stay at this hotel again. price, location and staff made all the difference. great stay for a beach vacation and relaxing.
Highly Recommend the Meritus Pelangi”
I highly recommend the Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi. The rooms are large, very clean and modern, with a rustic feel. The resort is very quiet, with beautiful gardens and surroundings. The two pools are well designed and maintained. The staff are excellent, friendly and always have a smile to greet you. This is the perfect place to relax and recharge in Langkawi.
