Our stay at the Meritus was fantastic. In Langkawi with a group of friends, we decided to go in "resorts type" hotels instead of hostels this time. We were pleasantly surprised by the Meritus. Yes, it is under construction, but unless next to it, you won't be bothered.

We were sleeping in a newly renovated room next to the beach - how relaxing to fall asleep tothe sound of the waves!

The staff is exceptional, from the front desk, to the technician who will fix your inroom safe in case you played too much with it - ahah!

We were also pleased with the fact that our friends could visit us at the Meritus, and us go to their resort, without issues.

The breakfast buffet is complete. We haven't tried the main restaurant for dinner as it was a bit expensive for Malaysia and for our budget. We did spend most of our time eating very close by (5 minutes walk) to Mumbai
An arabic/indian restaurant. It is worth going once, you will want to return.

The 2 dives with Coral Island were also very fun - lots of fishes and cool staff.

We went to the seven wells and waterfall. Free and well preserved for bathing in the river.

I will miss Malaysia. Wish I could stay :)

We spent our first big family holiday in Langkawi August 2012. It was the best family holiday we have ever had. When we arrived it has been raining all day -- so we thought that our trip would be ruined. How wrong could we be? When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted with a friendly face .... they offered us drink on arrival and due to room not fully ready they also offered us access to the Meritus Lounge. Our kids love it - especially after a long travel -- they were offered free drinks and food.

I must say that they went the extra mile soonest we realize our room has a leak in the roof. Their Assistant Duty Manager, I must say was the most service-minded person I have met. He arranged for us to switch our room the next day. To our surprise we were put in the Honeymoon suite.

After such experience my kids cannot stop talking about going back there. We are actually looking at tickets for next year. Good job Meritus in bringing showing the true Malaysian Hospitality.

Was a bit weary staying here as had read some bad reviews before going but was happily surprised when we arrived. We stayed in a beach front room which was just amazing with our balcony opening up to the beach. Free drinks everyday in the mini bar was a nice touch. Also loved the bathroom were you could overlook the ocean from your bath. Yes there was renovations going on but they didn't bother us as we could no hear the work and they didn't effect us at all. The buffet breakfast was not as good as had experienced in other places but as still quite good. We also organized a great tour through the tour desk at the hotel. would recommend this hotel and Qld love to g bad once all the renovations have been completed. Only negative was lack of hot water. Location was good as we could walk along the beach at night and many restaurants in walking distance.

Room Tip: Beach front all the way

i just read my boyfriend's rating of the Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort and I couldnt agree more! We had a wonderful 7-8 days there in May. I too, would have liked to have a beachfront cottage/room but we were quite comfortable with our lake side room. The whole property is set up like a very friendly village, everyone was so helpful and nice. I too, would like to point out Sabri and Borhan were extremely helpful. (I wish I could remember some other names...!)
Anyway, this is a fantastic property and the small strip of shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance from the resort. We rented a car from the resort for one day and drove around the island and saw several of the attractions. Being an American, of course I had to adjust to the left sided driving, but was not much of an issue. One of the reviews rated the property down because of some renovations going on...yes this was going on when we were there, but it was not a problem at all. Hope to be there again soon.

Room Tip: Get a beachfront room if you can, as the beach is on the west side of the island and the sunsets are...

My stay in may this year was fantastic. I was there with my boyfriend and we really enjoyed the hotel and it's service also the pool. I will definitely go back and stay there at the end of this year. I didn't liked the view becouse it was only pool view. But I understand the availability of the rooms. I hope next time they give us a beach view. And I want to say thanks to manager Burhan and sabri for their nice hosting.

i liked the hotel because it was laid out very well.... greeneries everywhere you turn is a plus point... the beach is not great but good enough to be enjoyed..

i loved the room, although they could have made the room more sound proof, because i really do not want to hear what the other guests are arguing about and whether they snore when they sleep...

i love the breakfast buffet and the location allowed us to get outside food easily.... thai food everywhere on the outside... :D
