Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and Spa

The perfect location on Cenang Beach

This excellent hotel is situated at the end of the beautiful white sands of Pantai Cenang beach. A short walk along the beach will take you to casual beach bars and restaurants and after around 15-20 minutes you will find the Cenang Mall and the heart of the resort centre. The hotel has been designed in the style of a traditional Malay village with wooden chalets dotted through landscaped gardens giving you a sense of privacy and relaxation. As you walk around the grounds you will find two lagoon pools, a mini golf course, kids club and leisure centre, as well as bicycle rental and the Pelangi spa.

A number of water sports and activities are on offer and when it comes to meals you can enjoy buffet cuisine with live cooking stations at the Spice Market Restaurant or enjoy beachfront dining at the casual CBA bar and restaurant, perfect for sunset views.

Langkawi First-timers!

singapore

Quick 2D1N getaway. 3 of us haven't been to the island. We deliberated if we should stay in Kuah town, Pantai Cenang or someplace else. Good call not to stay in town. Check-in was quite breezy, under 10 minutes. The grab ride from airport didn't take too long as well. We were greeted with welcome drinks and towels. The wait for the buggy took quite awhile though. Yup, lazy guests can choose to be ferried in buggies during the stay. Our "chalet"/"kampung" was about a 4-5 min walk from the lobby. Our room was in the garden terrace wing. Added an additional bed. Big bathroom cum shower, the there's a little balcony too, great for smokers. There were mosquitoes in the balcony and in-room. Had quite a good sleep; bedding was decent. Meritus Pelangi guests have the choice of having western breakfast at the beachfront CBA restaurant or in the aircon comforts of Spice Market Restaurant where the lobby is. Tip: the spread at Spice Market Restaurant consists of Asian And Western/International, definitely the better spread. Go to CBA for view of the beach , and if you're into having champagne at breakfast. In all, a pleasant first-time visit to the island. Our room came up to almost SGD$300 including the additional bed but excluding the island's mandatory "tourism tax". The beach further down the CBA stretch (unit numbers single digits) was nicer than the stretch near our room (we were in room 27). Swimming isn't allowed on our side of beach. There are convenience stores and seafood restaurants about 1km/ 15-20mins? walk from the resort. All the staff we met were friendly save for a sullen waitress at Spice Market Restaurant. Not a bad choice of accommodation at all based on our 2D1N stay.

Bad experience

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I’ve stayed 2 days and 1 night at this resort. We’ve arrived at 11am and we were told that official check in time is at 3pm. However, they will call us once our room is ready. Waited till 2.30 and nobody called us so we went to reception. We’ve checked in to 2501. I’ve unpacked my luggage took a bath. Then i’ve noticed the room is still warm although i’ve switched on the ac. Informed the room cleaner and they’ve informed the maintainance guy. Waited for quite sometime for the guy to come. When he came, he told us there is some problem wth the compressor. We had to move to another room but we had to wait because the room was not ready. We’ve only managed to check in n settled in at 5pm!!! I had to unpack..repack..unpack again!!! The replacement room that they give us is twin bed instead of king bed. They’ve combined it and put piles of comforter to make it feel like king bed but upon sleeping on it i dont feel comfortable at all as it is too soft..as if u sunk into the mattress. I’ve complaint about all these to the duty manager Mr Azwan and he asked me about my return flight. As it is at night, he could give us very late to compensate us for what we had to go through. He promised to call back to confirm the timing but he never did. So the next day, I’ve called the reception to confirm on my check out time and the guy told me that he was informed by Encik Azwan..my ‘compensate very late’ check out time is at 2pm! I was shocked and very dissapointed. I’ve emphasized to them that the aircond problem was not my fault...the replacement room wasnt ready..not my fault either...i am truly dissapointed. This is definitely my first and last time to the resort.
