The hotel

Secluded in 35 acres of coconut-rich gardens on a marvellous stretch of sandy beach, the resort is architecturally designed to depict a traditional Malay village, using lots of lovely indigenous wood creating a world of ethnic charm and tropical tranquility. The charming wooden chalets contain your accommodations which are raised on stilts with spacious verandas and set in clusters, scattered around the flower-filled gardens. You'll no doubt spend much of the day relaxing around one of the two pools, or head to the beach where there are water sports to enjoy, the resort even has a mini-golf course if you've got energy to spare. For a truly wonderful dining experience book a table at the Spice Market Restaurant, with either al fresco or air-conditioned seating indoors the choices of Malay, Chinese, Indian and other International cuisines on offer mean that your suppers can be exotic as your days in this lovely resort.

I visited the resort for a duration of 3 days and 2 nights with my partner and had a really good experience. In terms of service, the staff were very respectful and accommodating. They attended to all our requests promptly and were very polite with us. During our stay, we stayed in the suite with the lake view. The resort itself was slightly dated, however, the rooms itself were gorgeous, spacious and clean. The toilets were sparkling clean and amenities were adequate. The resort's breakfast had quite a good spread (asian and international flavours), however, the food was nothing spectacular. Overall, I would recommend Meritus Pelangi if your trip involve spending more time outside of the resort (ie, visiting local attractions, eating local food), as there are not many attractions within the resort.

Stayed last week with family and kids. I have been coming to Pelangi Hotel for several years. Customer service and staff are always good. Rooms are nice but the kids water park near the pool area is deteriorating over the years, which needs immediate repair and maintenance. Hotel management should look into this.
