We didn't actually stay at rainbow lodge so this is more a review for an employee, Chief, a guy who we got to know through trying to hire motorcycles on our first day! He was the most helpful, generous and kind man who organised many things for us during our stay including a private boat charter and discounted car rental.... More

Room was clean and was nice to have an outside area with hammock. Cafe was nice enough. Staff not so helpful, quite short with us at times. Close walk to shops, loads of places to eat and 2/3 minutes walk to the beach. Get what you pay for but location is ideal. Good for backpackers but not really anybody else.

Average hotel but not very cheap. We booked a room without AC but when we reached there we found out only one stand fan which is not enough to provide air. The toilets were very old and broken. Then we shifted to an AC room that cost us good amount of extra charges. The food is also unapetizing.

A five minute walk from the beach, Rainbow Lodge offers tranquility and yet is close to all the hot spots in Cenang beach. Very well maintained, is clean and spacious. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend it 👍🏼

The staff could not be any more helpful, even advising us of cheap places to eat. The rooms are comfortable but go for an air con room, a fan is not enough. Walking distance to the beach and the place also offer bike hire.

Stayed here with a friend for four nights. Basic room but had everything one would need for a chilled beach holiday. Great value (around 20 euro a night for bungalow) Really close to the beach and restaurants Very friendly staff, nice chill out area. Gorgeous coffee!!! I would recommend this place to someone on a budget.

Superb place ! We had a fan room for 50RM, with a terrace and a private hammock. Were supposed to stay 2 days and ended up to stay a whole week. It's lovely, super clean, the staff is nice and helpful. There are some cheaper options in the main strip (around 35RM) but we loved being in the countryside and... More

We had booked a quad room through a third-party website but when we arrived there was only a double bed available in the room. The staff were super helpful and brought in two extra mattresses and towels even though it was late at night. They were also happy to provide a kettle to boil water in the small kitchen. Pros:...

Rainbow Lodge is situated just off of Cenang beach, but the area feels quiet and remote, which is lovely. Outside, cows and chickens roam freely along the narrow road which leads down to the main beach area, where a lot of bars and restaurants are situated. We opted for an air con room, all of which have a 'motel' look... More

The best guesthouse in langkawi. You feel at home. Its a good place to meet people and its respectful and quiet at night. The guesthouse is located 5min by walk from the beach but away from the noise of the mainroad and that is a good point. You can take a good breakfast around ;) there is also a good... More
