Tengah Beach on Langkawi, Malaysia
Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, Langkawi
- Beautifully designed accommodation, each with views from private balconies
- A full roster of excellent resort activities
Once you’re checked into the beautiful Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, prepare to let your troubles drift away with the tide that laps the white sands of Pantai Cenang beach, on Langkawi.
This large resort is arranged to emulate a traditional Malay village, with the accommodation housed in attractive two-storey wooden villas surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Guestrooms are smart and spacious, each with a balcony. Would you choose yours to overlook the hotel’s gardens, the lagoon-style swimming pools or that amazing beach? Whichever room you opt for, all of them are tastefully designed with nods to the locality, finished with an abundance of warm woods and decadent soft furnishings. There are also spacious family rooms, perfectly thought-through for those travelling with children.
The Pelangi Spa will beckon pamper-seekers into its luxurious folds, seducing them with a menu of restorative treatments. On the beach, you’ll find a full roster of watersports to try, or there’s squash, tennis, archery, mini golf and bikes rentals if you prefer your adventures on dry land. Kids are kept entertained at the excellent children’s club.
When it comes to dining, there are two options (although you’re only a short walk away from the restaurants in town). Spice Market offers a wide and interesting choice of Asian favourites, including Chinese, Indian, Malay and Thai dishes. For a more relaxed ambience, head to beachside Cba for an international dining menu. Stay for sunset and explore the restaurant’s excellent drinks list, or head to the Pelangi lobby bar for a dessert and nightcap.
This one suits adventure seekers and beach bunnies alike, with so many activities to choose from if you’re active, and an incredible beach and pool if you’re not.
