"Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi - Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa" was built in Malaysia's architectural style and has a private beach in front of the hotel. It is close to the busy downtown Chennang Road, which is the busiest downtown area in Langkawi, so it is close to the airport as well as the location requirements that make it easy to walk around so that we can schedule a leisurely short trip for two nights and three days as we like You can combine. As accommodation cost also varies according to the type of room, it was the deciding factor for this hotel that there was a room where we could stay with our budget. I will show you how I stayed this time. 【Official website】 Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi
Check the hotel's exterior and entrance / reception
In the hotel entrance, the flowers of the southern countries are in full bloom and the guards who are at the entrance welcome with a smile.
Because it is unified in buildings of two stories at most, we received the appearance and impression blended in the atmosphere of the resort of Langkawi.
Entering the entrance is a large lobby.
At the reception, they brought me a cold welcome drink and towel, and gave me a wide explanation of the inside of the building carefully. After that, he carried the baggage to the cart and brought it to the room. The flow from reception to arrival at the room was very smooth and I was able to check in without stress.
What is the room of a deluxe double room?
This is the lodge I stayed at. Although it is not a newly built building, it was very clean, so it was possible to stay without feeling uncomfortable, because the cleaning was perfect.
It is a good entrance of the atmosphere.
It was a double bed large enough to sleep by two people. Sleepiness was outstanding, and I slept well for the 2 nights.
The pillow was soft and not so high type and it was very good personally. There is also an alarm clock on the side of the bed.
NHK on Japanese TV was broadcasted on television, so it is recommended especially for those staying for a long time.
Although I stayed in a hot summer, I had both air conditioners and fans, and I enjoyed the comfortable hotel life with satisfactory effect. The luggage storage space beside the bathroom was glad that we were able to put on and take out the luggage without bending because the space was enough and the height was just right even if we spread the trunk.
In-room sofa and table
It is a user-friendly sink.
Bathtub and shower booth are made separately.
The bathtub also has a shower head, which is very convenient
There are two types of shower booth, movable shower head and fixed type shower head from which water flows from overhead, so you can choose whichever you like. In Southeast Asia there was no problem concerning the anxiety of water pressure which is common, it was hydraulic pressure as shower in Japan.
Bath amenities included all kinds of items including shampoo, rinse, body soap, toothbrush, comb, soap, hair dryer and so on. It is regrettable that there was no provision for cosmetic products such as make-up water and milky lotion essential for women. Since the head of the equipped toothbrush is large and it has a hard time to polish teeth, we recommend bringing it from Japan.
Rooms Cafe bar
Cafe bar installed in the bedroom
As equipped cafes, we had everything we needed, such as coffee, tea, bottled mineral water.
Juice, tea, beer and so on were contained in the refrigerator. Since Langkawi is a tax-exempt island, I was surprised to be able to drink a beer of minibar at less than 200 yen.
Closet and safety box
In the closet there was an iron and ironing board, a long umbrella, a bathrobe and so on. There were enough hangers to use with two people, so I did not feel any inconveniences.
There was a general safety box.
the view from the room
It was a spacious terrace with tables and two chairs in approximately 6 tatami mats. Smoking inside the room is no smoking, but smoking on the terrace was ok.
As it is a beachfront, it is a perfect location with a beach right in front of you on your terrace.
Because we were on the second floor we could not go directly to the beach from the terrace, but those who took room on the first floor were walking to the beach directly from the terrace. In the morning and evening a comfortable wind was blowing and it was a very cozy space.
The hotel has 2 restaurants and 2 bar / lounges.
I used a restaurant called spice market in the hotel. Two kinds of dinner, buffet and a la carte, can be chosen, but this time I made it à la carte. The amount per dish is quite large, for example, not only rice, but also vegetables and meat, etc. were beautifully arranged for Malaysian specialty nasi goreng (fried rice), so we were able to eat very gorgeous.
There is also a cake shop in the hotel.
Hotel outdoor pool
There are two pools in a large site. The main pool was located just outside the front desk and frankly I thought it would be better if I had built a little more private feeling. Also, it was a pity that the pool will close at night. I wish I had lit up and opened, to some extent late at night.
However, it was not too crowded whenever I went and I was able to use it comfortably.
Because there was a children's playground etc., it is also recommended for use in the family layer.
One of the decisive factors for this hotel was "private beach" but it was a beautiful and beautiful beach beyond expectation. However, it was an open beach as it seemed that somebody other than guests also took a walk even though it was a private beach.
We were able to fully enjoy the beach umbrella which has white white sand beach which we can walk even barefoot, well prepared number.
There are lots of deck chairs lining up.
You can go to the beach at once from the room.
Each cottage is scattered in the vast grounds when you pass through the front, and the flowers of the southern countries are blooming in the premises.
It was very beautifully maintained and I could fully enjoy the southern country feeling even with a slight walking degree. You can also see wild squirrels and monkeys.
There are two full-fledged gifts of souvenir shops such as convenience store shops and specialties from Malaysia to get out of the premises.
The price was still more expensive compared to the middle of the city. However, we also have "Nakako soap" popular among Japanese, etc. There are plenty of goods so it may be good to take a peek at once while staying.
Because it is out of Chenang Road, the night road was not dark, and I could walk anywhere without any worries, in particular. The nearest convenience store is about 5 minutes on foot.
Staff & Customers
I could not communicate with Japanese staff at all, but I was able to communicate in English. The smile was nice and I was able to stay comfortably. I think that it was nice to have a friendly taste, such as jokeing with a Japanese word of Japanese as a Japanese and looking like a southern country, I think that it was good. However, when asking for a taxi or asking for room service, we responded promptly, but I was able to fully understand that I was doing my job properly. I felt that the audience members who stayed at the audience were 10% Japanese, 20% Chinese and 70% Westerners. There were many in China and South Korea in other hotels, but hotel stayed at this time was few. Also, it was a good impression that there were many individual guests and there were not too many group customers.
From the airport, a fixed amount of taxi usage is common. It takes about 20 minutes and the amount is about 600 yen. I ran between the hotel and the airport several times in the evening, morning, and daytime, but there was not much crowding. Even though I was sightseeing just before the flight on the final day, I could go to the airport as scheduled. The hotel is located in the outskirts of downtown “Chenang Road” among Langkawi’s islands, so it is a great location for those who want to enjoy both the beach and the city walk. To the popular cable car in Langkawi is 30 minutes by taxi, it is about 900 yen.
I am sincerely thinking that this hotel, Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort Langkawi, could stay at the hotel. The wonderful condition of a private beach in front of a tropical style cottage type room is the best impression first. In addition, the kindness and hard work of the staff members were sufficiently transmitted, and we were able to make it a memorable stay. Actually, I lost my passport during this trip and I had encountered a problem that I found it on the day before my return home, but after consulting with the staff of the hotel first I noticed the loss, I found that the airport in Langkawi, He called up all possible places such as a taxi company and found the passport I left behind. It was very helpful. I would like to visit again soon, to tell firmly the gratitude and to stay again.
