Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a very nice resort on the north end of a nice beach. The resort facilities are some some of the nicest in this town and it is great (and geared toward) families and couples. It is a little pricey for the area, but if you get a good deal it is very much worth a stay. Just be warned that check in may take a while.

This hotel is very conveniently located: beachfront on private land, and a brief walk from many shops and restaurants. The staff is helpful and courteous. The public areas are very aesthetically pleasing, and well-decorated for Chinese New Year. The lobby is beautiful. The gym is also well equipped with a wide variety of machines and equipment. However, I had multiple issues with my two rooms I booked for four nights. The television consistently had poor reception, with a lot of static, even after maintenance came to fix it. I also had issues with WiFi connectivity; it was fine in public areas and outdoors, however once we stepped foot into the room, the connection was either very weak or completely dropped. The WiFi was stronger on the beach than in my rooms. It took over 24 hours and several calls to the front desk to finally resolve the issue. Additionally, the cleanliness of the rooms did not meet my expectations for a five star establishment. I found that multiple surfaces and lamps were dusty, and the floor remained unswept for the majority of my stay. But the worst part was when I found a huge, live cockroach crawling around inside my refrigerator! Not only is this a cleanliness concern, but also a health concern as well. Would not recommend.

Very Friendly and helpful staff. Disappointed with slow service at CBA restaurant. Too many mosquitos. Found a dead baby bat and bat droppings at balcony. Enjoyed buggy rides which were usually prompt with the exception of one occasion when we had to wait for a while.

The frontdesk is helpful and the hotel is nice. Wellcome drinks served in the lobby when check in.

Kids loved it ... should have had a longer stay than the 3 nights booked. Brilliant stay!

Well equipped resort, great breakfast, good location, friendly staff. Free WIFI included.

The resort located at a beautiful beach and just a few minutes walk to Pantai Cenang for dinning, drinking or shopping.

I am a guy normally don't sleep well at a new place or new bed when travelling for business or vacation. This hotel provided me with the most comfortable bed, surroundings under a peaceful environment which I enjoy the most. Friendly staff, 15 ~ 20 mins walking at the long beach and it takes you to a small town which allow you for lunch / dinning / shopping or local tour booking, the hotel location is extremely convenience to get around to nearby attraction. If I ever visit Langkawi again, this is the only hotel that I love to re-visit again.

Food is wonderful; staff is wonderful; spa is wonderful; location is best on Langkawi Island. Great value. Highly recommend this resort for individual, family, honeymoon. Close ride from airport (4 minutes). Staff will pick you up at your room, or as you are walking (in a golf cart). Amenities are great - gym, free bike rentals. Selection of two restaurants to eat from on site. Both have charm and priced right. I will return to this resort. Beach is clean. Secluded from noise, yet security is very good.

After arriving, received welcome drink and cold hand and face towel to refresh self. After arriving at the room two negatives were safe was locked and air conditioner showed eroor E1 which means compressor was spoled. Staff immediately moved us to our final destination. Afterwards, the hotel sent us the most tasty vanilla and chocolate cake to say "sorry." Everything about this hotel is top rated. Great location to get to sight seeing attractions...hotel is so great, will return.

Staff very helpful. Good Service. Bathrooms are below standard of such a hotel, in need of renovation. Awesome beach and also very nice Gym and Spa.

Fantastic. Although some upgrade work was being carried out, this did not affect our enjoyment of the beautiful setting and the very friendly staff. Food is excellent and the atmosphere is very easy going. Saving up for next year.

The location was great, just at the top of the beach within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The rooms facing the water have great views and it is lovely to hear the water breaking on the shore. The room service is of a good standard. The only criticism is the gym is run down which is a disappointment if fitness is important.

Great location, short walk to shops and restaraunts, rooms were very clean, with a nice traditional Malaysian feel to them, Breakfast wasnt great, but that was the only thing that could be faulted about this hotel. Would definately stay here again. Highly recommended!

This was my 17 tripp to the same hotel,my first time was in 1990, the atmosfere is still the same, and the staff very friendle and helpfull,but the bungalovs start to get old and need a lot of repare ,difficult to close and open doors,so all mosqitos has many waysto get in.
