18 Only Beautiful People At Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa

Sunny smiles and a down--to-earthness that gave us the warm and fuzzy made my vacation incredibly memorable, or should I say magical?

The year is almost at an end. Hubs and I decided that a holiday was long overdue. So, off we flew to Langkawi for some rest and relaxation. Our two nights stay at Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa was nothing short of exciting. We were on the #MyPelangi special rates promotion package which included breakfast, airport transfers and late check-out.

Check-in was remarkable. The hotel receptionist led us to the lounge area where the necessary forms were completed there and then. We were promptly attended to with chilled drinks and a wet towel. I was momentarily stunned by the VIP treatment!

An hour later, we were taken to our garden-view room on a buggy, passing rows of blooming bunga raya shrubs.There's even a poultry farm and an exhibit of a typical Malay house.

Arriving at the kampung (village) styled double storey building, we were welcomed into the corner unit on the ground floor - an enchanting room with old-style decor that begged for photos.

It was spacious, the doors leading outside to a large balcony -  I pictured myself lounging on the chair with a book and a glass of mocktail in hand, wearing a wide straw hat for effect.

Here is a look at the bathroom and the things that were provided. Hair dryer, bath essentials, umbrellas, ironing board, hangers, safe box and even an electric mosquito repellent!

The beach, located along Pantai Cenang, is a dream with breathtaking scenery - the perfect setting for romantic evenings. We caught the rainbow and the sunset here, sweetening our experience.

The resort is impressive, but what captivated me most about Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort is really the winning personalities of the people who work there.

There were so many occasions they touched our hearts - like the time a concerned staff waved a buggy down for us after we were left stranded at the workshop beside the resort having gotten caught in a thunderstorm, the genuine welcome we felt at Leisure Centre when they greeted us with open arms, coffee and cookies, the Pakcik who came to pick me up but still smiled warmly when he found out that he hadn't been informed that I had cancelled the airport transfer, the lady at reservations who remembered my room number although it was already the next day!

Countless others made our day with enthusiastic greetings of "Good morning!" I cannot list down all the moments they made me feel like hugging them so I'll sum it up as this - Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, Langkawi is about good vibes and making sure that every guest is attended to with TLC (tender loving care).

I enjoyed the buffet breakfast. It was a good spread catering to many types of eaters.

A short distance away from the resort are duty free shops, beachside hotels and restaurants - it was quite lively in the evening. I shopped for chocolates and had the most amazing dinner but that's a story that will have to go into another post.

To be honest, we were sad to leave this place but on a brighter note, it is now stored in my head under "Fond Memories".

    1. Me too. Langkawi is flooded in several areas due to the storm and tour operators have been asked to halt water activities for the time being.

  7. This hotel looks good and perfect for a real relaxing retreat with all the good services. I could imagine your excitement when they got you seated like a VIP when you checked in. I had this only similar experience when I checked into Hyatt Regency Yogyakarta and I was plonked into a huge sofa with nice cocktail being served too.

    I like the idea of sleeping in your own units with spacious balcony and privacy! Now I need a holiday so badly.
