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.

Fantastic holiday

Sydney, Australia

Had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday at the Meritus Pelangi Hotel, one of our best family holidays. We stayed for 12 days as a family with 2 teenage daughters. We stayed in a beach front room in block 7, lovely large rooms and an ideal location for everything. The breakfast buffet has an excellent choice, the main pool is very relaxing with lots of sun loungers. In the evenings both the lobby lounge and CBA are great for pre-dinner drinks. The hotel staff no matter what role they are performing are very courteous, polite and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing family vacation.

Best Resort Experience Ever!

Bondi, Australia

Having just returned from 5 nights in this magical resort, I'm already planning our return visit. What a blissful holiday our family of 4 enjoyed at Meritus Pelangi! The resort very efficiently accommodated our request for interconnecting pool terrace rooms, and they were perfectly situated, with sun-beds just off our shady verandah, and the gorgeous Cascades Pool bar adjacent. The check in experience at Meritus Pelangi is warm and friendly, with a welcome drink and cooling towel. Emily explained the resort layout and facilities very thoroughly, and we were transported efficiently to our room by golf buggy, enjoying the ride through the well maintained tropical gardens. We very quickly made ourselves at home, and befriended the lovely staff at Cascades Pool Bar. Azri, Norzita and Faridhatun made our holiday such fun. We enjoyed many frozen Margaritas, thanks to Azri's special skill at making margarita 'snow cones' that were spectacular and delicious. Prices for in-house drinks and dining are very reasonable, particularly on conversion to $AUD. All in all, over 5 days of unrestrained indulgence we spent the equivalent of about $AUD250 on in-house food and bev for our family of four (inc. 2 adult children). The extensive breakfast buffet (which was included in our room tariff) has everything that anyone ever felt like eating for breakfast (including champagne). We particularly enjoyed the omelette station and the Nasi Lemak. Breakfast gets very busy from about 9am, and you may have to wait a couple of minutes for a table, particularly if you are a family group. But the food is plentiful and replenished efficiently. Little touches from our housemaid added to the personalised feel of this resort. Fresh flowers and welcome/farewell notes plus excellent attention to detail in the cleaning and restocking of our complimentary water bottles etc were greatly appreciated. I could rave on forever about our wonderful holiday at Meritus Pelangi! This resort is well situated on Pantai Cenang, within striking distance of excellent local seafood BBQ restaurants (we particularly liked the Orkid Ria) and Langkawi generally represents a well-priced and peaceful holiday destination - a quieter, less boozy alternative to Bali or Phuket, that won't break the bank, but still affords an amazing five-star resort experience for couples and families looking for a blissed out beach break.
