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.

Loved it!

Singapore, Singapore

We booked the resort just a night before our stay as our trip was unplanned and we didnt get enough time to read reviews before booking the resort. But we had no regrets. Totally loved facilities, location, room and most importantly the beach. Resort is by the beach and beach private for resort guests. Beach was so clean. Reception staff, restaurant staff and all the attendents were helpful and courteous. Resort is located very close to centre and all the restaurants. One can just walk to the centre. I would highly recommend this resort.

Simply Wonderful! Please take us back!

Derby, United Kingdom

We had 10 nights here to celebrate my Wife's 50th Birthday, just the two of us and it was simply wonderful. This was our 5th time we have travelled to Langkawi, and our second stay at the Pelangi. We had a booked a beach front room with Breakfast directly with the Hotel. Check in was fine after a 10 minute Grab Ride from the airport. Our first room was on the first floor and I asked to be on a ground floor room, Pantai Cenang end. We moved after three nights, it wasn't an issue. The first room was delightful and there was a wonderful display on the bed and a cake, a lovely touch for my Wife. The beach is probably my favourite in the World, the view is wonderful! The great thing about the Pelangi is that it is on the quiet end of the beach but it is only a 10 minute walk to an array of bars/shops/restaurants. Once we moved downstairs (the room was fantastic but not as good as the first room) it was wonderful to go straight out onto the beach and sunbeds. We went to the CBA for breakfast on the first morning and it wasn't very good, we much preferred the Spice Market Restaurant and went there for 9 days. There was an array of choice, western/fresh omelette and also a traditional Malay, Lamb/Chicken curry with special rice for breakfast was great! As we have been before we knew there was a vast choice of restaurants for the evening. After a typical day we had a walk down the beach where there is a beach bar to enjoy cold Tiger beer and cocktails listening to beach vibes and watching the sunset, take me back please! Our favourite restaurant was Yasmin, which served the most wonderful Syrian fresh food. There is also a Korean restaurant well worth a visit (a Grab away). Our top tips: 1). Install the Grab App (Malaysia's version of Uber). £2 from the airport. 2). The CBA serves Carlsberg draft at £1.80 a pint, great value and a great bar. 3). Spice Market for Breakfast. 4). Loads of restaurants within a short walk, see trip advisor for the best. 5). Cenang Mall upstairs sells slabs of beer and other alcohol (10 minute walk). 6). We booked a car from a Kiosk for about £20, and did a full tour around the Island. One small gripe, we had a 7pm flight but had to check out at mid-day, the facilitites are not what you would expect from a 5 star resort. Overall we had an amazing time, we had three nights in KL but next time will just go straight to the Pelangi for the whole trip, it was simply wonderful!
