- Romantic Vacation
Everything from service to food and minor details were superb! However, I did write in a request if they could prepare something special as my fiancé and I were celebrating our anniversary and engagement but nothing was done. But otherwise all was awesome!
- Family vacation
Nice place to stay and very good ambiance. Restaurants, shopping and activities are near by.
- Family vacation
Good beach, good pool. Love them all
- Family vacation
Our stay in Langkawi this time involve the first 2nights at Meritus and the last 2nights at Tanjung Rhu, travelling with wife and our 5yrs son and 1yr daughter. U can also read my review on Tanjung Rhu. First 2nights at Meritus The good things 1. Location This Is by far the best family hotel in Pantai Chenang, u cant get any better, located at the end of the Main Langkawi beach, u get the privacy at the same time u can walk thru the beach for everything else. 2. check-in check-in at peak hour, 2pm, but everything was very smooth and perfect, the check-in done at the comfort of the sofa, with sparkling juice and cold towel, superb, we are very impressed, even they informed us that the room was not ready at that time but because of the hospitality, we don't mind at all 3. Staff 80% of the staff was very helpful and friendly, that makes the rest 20% insignificant. 4. Kids Friendly U will not better hotel than this in Langkawi, they have the mini waterpark and the Kids Club full of activities. your kids will love here. 5. Breakfast was well spread, not impressive but its not bad at all. 6. We saw clinic in the hotel, its make u feel safer when u have kids with you. 7. We provided with a bucket of fresh fruits for our anniversary Downside 1. The room smell of old house and make my nose stuffy, although the bed and floor and toilet very clean, I can see dust at the ceiling (I stayed upperfloor) 2. We stay at the Lakeside Deluxe, a bit far from the Main Building, although they provide buggy service, they are not that efficient, we end up walking most of the time, we don't really mind if we don't have a 1yo baby. Idea to improve The lake is very quite and dark at night, a bit scarry and lonely when u want to hangout outside, they should do a fountain with light to make the relaxing water sound with something to look at in the lake. but we still rate it 5star because of the good side exceed far the bad side. Tanjung Rhu Resort The good things 1. Beach Its a private beach, full stop. the sunset here is the best, don't know why, u can see from all pictures posted, although the same sun but the scenery is far better. The beach is well maintained, its a long stretch of 2km of private beach so you can feel like you own the beach, very secluded and privacy, the ambiance really help to get the moment right with your family, just need to keep your eye with the flag colour. they mentioned about the current of the water a bit unpredictable at a certain time. 2. Checkin, if you read my review on Meritus above on the checkin, forget about it, when I arrive with our rental car, few personal already waited us there (probably the guard already informed them), once I open the door, they welcomed us with our NAME! and invited us to leave the car and our luggage and direct us to our room, we were like wait, should we check-in first? the check-in was all done on the comfort of our room! with sparkling juice and cold towel! by the time our check-in process done, all our bags was already in our room. this is the right way of check in should be done anywhere in the world! 3. Staff 95% friendly and helpful and 5% irrelevant at all. Few time when we comeback to our room, we got choc and they make our bed and empty all the bin, top up mineral water, they really do beyond our expectation, when we ask about the mangrove trip, they were very helpful on explaining and take the initiative to call and check on our behalf 4. we were provided with a basket of fresh fruits and anniversary cake. 5. Breakfast, ill say meritus far better but the environment here were the best, not many people and the table a bit far from others for privacy. we don't feel pack here compare to meritus. 6. Environment environment and ambience here really peaceful, u can really feel your innerself being recovered from the daily life stress, perfect for couples. Down side 1. things were so perfect, I don't understand why they only provide toothbrush/paste and hotel slippers upon request, its a basic amenities of 2stars hotel above. Really disappointing when cant find those things when u really need them, didn't expect its only upon request for hotel this level. 2. Parking they charge rm10 for valet parking eachtime per entry, and if u don't want to choose valet parking, the guest parking is exactly 350M from the lobby, its ok for 1 time, but if each time u need to walk about 700M each way, its very tiring. 3. Not kids friendly, the hotel is not really kids friendly, its more to honeymoon type, they have an adult pool with no kids allowed in that area and closed at 10pm, the other 2pool (kids allowed) closed at 7pm, they should be fair for the kids and let the kids play in the pool till 10pm, for kids, after 7pm, practically nothing for them, just imagine everything is far from the hotel, the only option for them is sleep. 4. Wifi only at lobby and restaurant. Ideas 1. Provide buggy - from parking to lobby, its very simple 2. toothpaste/brush and hotel selipar upon request? this not even merely a suggestion guys, just provide. but we still rate it 5star because of the good side exceed far the bad side and the staff deserve it!

Great Service But Rooms Need to Renovate
We were there for the Ironman Malaysia 2017 event. We flew from Singapore to Langkawi direct on AirAsia. We have to mentioned that AirAsia is and will be an awesome airline to fly in future compared to Singapore Airlines or SilkAir. We have flown both airlines and we must say, Singapore Airlines and SilkAir services and flexibility is terrible! Our bike luggage and other check in luggage arrived safely and in good order. Although it is a big event and there were loads of bike luggage, AirAsia ground crew and staff at the Langkawi International Airport gave priority to bike luggage and handle them with real care. I must cite an incident with SilkAir to Cebu for an Ironman race and our bike luggage did not arrive citing there were too many bike luggage and was deem too big. Stupid answer I must say given by SilkAir. Upon our arrival, we were met by the Meritus Pelangi Resort staff, Huzaini. He apologize he had our transfer mixed up and instead of having a van for us, he had a saloon car. But all was not lost, cos he had made a contingency plan and when we arrived at the resort, our luggage arrived first. Superb! The resort is only 10 minutes by car from the airport. It is advisable to arrange resort transfer via your resort then take the public taxis as they were a ripped off as told by our friends who flew in later. Upon arrival, we love the check-in process. Instead of a Q to register oneself at the reception counter, we were given seats at the lobby lounge area and served welcome drinks and cold towels. A staff attended to us, gave us info and soon we were in the room. Guests have a choice of a buggy transfer to your room or take a walk. We suggest you walk as one can then explore the resort surroundings. Our room was a deluxe terrace. From the outside it has an architecture of a Malay long house. Inside all modern. However, it looks tired and worn. The high ceiling looks great but the air-con was not powerful enough to keep it cool. So it was a battle between warm and cool. The bathroom is huge and we love it! The walls are thin as the whole building structure is made of wood. Thus one could hear your neighbors. The room lighting is very dim and not conducive to read or even pack your luggage in the wee hours of departure. Bed is really comfortable. The resort has two pools. For a quieter scene, the Cascading Pool is the choice. The beach is clean and great for an ocean swim with warm waters. We wanted to have dinner at one of the outlets, cBa. However, the menu is limited and more to the western dishes. cBa has a great view of the ocean. We headed to the Spice Market Restaurant and had the dinner buffet. It was awesome. Love the local food variety especially the desserts. We had breakfast there too. A word of caution tho. Do not leave your plate of food unattended if you are sitting alfresco. The birds will be joining you. The Meritus Club Lounge was a welcome for us. Great food as well, awesome service and very quiet. Only setback is the poor Wi-Fi connectivity in the Club Lounge. Elsewhere and even by the beach, the signal is strong. The Wi-Fi is complimentary. If you want to have meals like the locals, a mere walk outside the resort to your right approx. 30m away are a row of food shops including a mini-mart. 1km away is MacDonald's!! Taxi are available as well to visit the town. Just ask the concierge and they will call a taxi for you with a fixed price paid directly to the taxi driver. One place to visit is the Sky Cable! Amazing view! Overall we had a great stay, though we wanted to meet the GM but he seems always to be busy or so. Our stay was made awesome because of these staff - Huzaini (airport rep), Rizduan Tada, Linda, Husna, Ireinen (Meritus Club Lounge) and Favaz, Leong (front office). if by any chance we are back at Langkawi, we will definitely stay at the Meritus Pelangi. Just hope by then, a little renovations is done to your rooms.

Family Friendly Resort with Great Location
We requested for connecting Pool Terrace rooms near the hotel lobby & facilities, as my mum cannot walk too far & I have 3 kids with me. However, was given rooms near to pool no. 2 area which was pretty far from lobby. Highlighted this to front-desk, as we were promised by Hafeezah (reservation) that our request will be given top priority. It was tough for the front desk to accommodate intially, but we were so glad Hazril (if I got his name right) came to our rescue. Because only 1 pool terrace is available, he helped to upgrade one of the room to Suite. Hazril go out of his way to meet our needs, he was understanding & kind. He even gave us some recommendation of good restaurants nearby. Apart from check-in dilemma, overall was great. Friendly & helpful staff, good facilities, beautiful beach-front, walking distance to restaurants & shops. Hotel Need some improvement on the cleaning, cause the rooms was quite dusty & we could feel some leftover partical on the floor.

Clean Beach and Friendly reception
The best resort which I have ever seen. It has 2 pools and 1 water park for children and clean beach. The rooms are big and clean.The reception are warm and friendly. The breakfast is amazing. The only problem is distance between reception, pools and breakfast and their cars always have problem.

Fantastic hotel right on a beautiful beach
This hotel is only 10 minutes transfer from airport. You are welcomed with a speedy check in and advised about their tourism tax which we paid on check-in. A buggy came and took us to our beachfront room with amazing views of the sea and the neighbouring islands. The beach extended for ages. Right in front of your room are sunbeds dotted along the grounds overlooking the beach. There are picturesque trees for cover lined along the beachfront so looked pretty. There are plenty of sunbeds in thus resort, you can get peace on the grass or seafront or you have 2 large pools, one with a swim up bar. There is also a Jacuzzi in the main pool but it was under maintenance when we were there. There is also a great section of the pool just for kids with various splash and water features for them to have great fun in. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. I would recommend upgrading to a beachfront room, however lakefront rooms also looked ok. You can eat in either the beachfront restaurant for breakfast, this serves eggs, omelettes, fresh fruit etc or in the other restaurant in the main lobby but they serve mainly Asian food for breakfast though you can still get eggs, omelettes and toast there also. This hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the main street where there are loads of restaurants ranging from local, Thai, Korean, Indian and Arabic food as well as street food which again I highly recommend you to try. We had the most delicious spicy chicken noodle dish and the chicken was so moist and succulent! Other fantastic restaurants to try nearby would be Orkid Restaurant, Happy Happy City, Putumayo restaurant and a bar called Cinnamon. On the beach there is Thirstday bar and restaurant selling western food and just before this one Shell Out a outside eatery with blue plastic chairs under the trees that served amazing fish cooked to perfection. Also on the beach at night is a bar on the beach and is actually a tin shed he plays live music and you can dance the night away on the beach. The hotel will organise taxis for you no problem and take you to the Sky Bridge for 30RM each way. About a 20 minute ride?? When you decide to go make sure there is not a cloud high in the sky though or you won't see much from the bridge. Also the 3D museum is worth a visit when you are there. At the Oriental Village where the Sky Bridge is there is loads of other interesting things to do so can spend a few hours here. All in all I can highly recommend the Meritus Pelangi everything about it is great. In my opinion it's the ideal location if you want the best of both worlds..relaxation beautiful views but places to go out at night also. By the way their resident band is very good too.

A succession of disappointments ...
First of all, the hotel is situated at the end of the airport runway. This means that you will hear the sounds of a plane every 30 minutes. Secondly we were very disappointed by the sea. The water is not clear. There were jellyfish during our stay. Snorkelling is 2hours away. Thirdly the hotel is not service oriented. Everything is complicated and had to be discussed. The rooms were available 2 hours late but when we asked for a late check-in the hotel said we would be charges. Discussion ... We had booked several rooms but the hotel said only one airport pick up would be free. Discussion... This is just annoying to discuss everything. While some of the personnel is friendly, part of it is quite grumpy and most of it is not able to perform some basic task. Ask an orange juice and you are fine. But more complex order expose you again to some ... discussions. Please like this review if you found it useful.
