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.

After lockdown began we had to leave the hotel and miss the last 2 days of our holiday. Staff and manager informed us we would received a refund for the missed days. Booking.com have informed me that the hotel are holding back the payment. Such a shame after planning to retunr to hotel.

Special thanks to Maygie Gui! Me and my partner were planning to stay 6 nights in this wonderful resort. Due to the covid-19 outbreak in Europe and closure of countries we needed to evaluate ourselves back to Europe after only spending 3 nights. We were quit stressed about this last minute situation and the staff of the hotel, and especially Maygie were so helpful, understanding and extremely customer friendly. Within 30 minutes everything was arranged and we were in a taxi to the airport. They helped with checkout, calling airline, refunding and taxi without any doubt. We felt so touched and helped, again many thanks! Let’s pray this world wide virus is over soon so we can return and finish our holiday at Meritus Pelangi Langkawi. Read less

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. Read less
