Sibling Surprises

A travel blog entry by ellie.willitts


On the last blog I mentioned that after the Full Moon we told KB that we were heading back to Malaysia to visit another Thai island on the opposite side of Thailand. I know this seems pretty far fetched and most normal people would question it, but Kristian is used to me bossing him around telling him where to go and not paying much attention, …

After a 4 hour wait at Satun, South Thailand and a 1 hour ferry ride, we arrived in Langkawi, Malaysia. We had pre booked into a beach hut in town on the main beach called Cenang.

On our first day, we rented a car the size of a can of Heinz Tomato Soup (sans the fancy labelling) and drove the whole length of the Island to get our bearings …

Island Draw - Langkawi

A travel blog entry by slowloris38


It was an 8-hour drive to reach the Kuala Kedah jetty from home. That included breakfast of dim sum and white coffee in Ipoh and a couple of pee stops. Slowed down when we were near Ipoh to appreciate its beautiful limestone hills. Looked exactly as those in Halong Bay, Vietnam and picture perfect as those in postcards on Guilin, China ( …

Friday, February 25

Another sunny and hot day in Malaysia,
so after breakfast I headed to the pool for another day of lounging.
A good book, a great pool and I was very content. Late afternoon I
headed back to the cool of my room and relaxed a bit and was soon
taking a nap, a nap that ended at 10:00 pm!! I …

    we loved this resort, fantastic room with lake view, lovely food, great pools, beach a little disappointing at the resort due to shells but 100m further down softer sand. We definitely return.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Meritus Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa, Langkawi Pantai Cenang



    We were fortunate to spend 3 fantastic weeks at the Pelangi Beach Resort in December. Fortunately, we arrived home on the 20th Dec, a week prior to the Tsunami and was shocked and saddened to hear that the resort had been affected. I honestly cannot reccommend this hotel highly enough - everything about it is truly 5 star.

    Give them time to rebuild it


    my family stayed here when the tsumani struck the hotel has 350 rooms which on the day were full to capicity on the day of the wave we were evacuated for two days on our return we were devastated to see the damage caused my advise to you is go somewhere else has the management said it would be months and millions spent before it would be restored to its outstanding beautyon checking out we were informed that the hotel had only 32 rooms occupied and were running on short staff with intermitant electricity and water problems just give them time to recover.

    Hotel in Paradise


    I stayed at the Pelangi Beach Hotel in May 04 and was saddened to hear about the Tsunami.

    I am sure the hotel will do everything it can to return to normal and would encourage people to continue visiting in 2005 and beyond as, from experience, it was a magical experience and I will definitely be going back at some point in the future.

    Pelangi Beach - Thank God


    Having visited Langkawi in 2003 with my family, staying at the Pelangi Beach Resort, I was devastated to hear the news about the Tsunami that has affected the region. I am pleased to find out having visited the Resort's website that the damage there has been minimal and that everything will be back to normal by the 1st Jan 2005.

    Worth every penny!!!!


    Fab resort, the grounds and surroundings are amazing!!!!! People there are lovely and your centrally located for every sight and activity on the island.



    Pelangi is fab. Rooms were lovely, hotel grounds immaculate and the swimming pool is probably one of the cleanest i have ever used. Even as you lounge by the pool, there's a flag by your sun bed that you wave when you want a drink or something to eat. The staff come running and also give you ice cool towels to cool you down. It doesn't get much better than that! The staff cannot do enough. My boyfriend proposed to me when we were there and he asked for some surprise flowers. WOW there were flowers everywhere even orchids in the bath and a silk sheet on the bed. Basically its wonderful, All of restaurants serve excellent food. The only thing i would say ( and this is not a moan really) is that the breakfast is quite expensive but there is a vast choice. We used the unique breakfast bar about 5 minute walk from pelangi very very cheap good food and full of local charm. As the name suggests it does only serve breakfast then closes late morning. Turn right as you leave the hotel grounds and its on the road side.

    Relaxing, luxurious resort. Something for all.


    Recently stayed for a fantastic 6 nights at the Pelangi.



    What a fantastic place the Pelangi Beach Resort is. We have just arrived back from honeymoon, after spending 5 days in Singapore and then 8 days in Langkawi. We travelled with Golden days in Malaysia and recieved 100% customer care.

    'Heavenly Pelangi'


    We stayed at the Pelangi in Febuary 2003 for 2 nights and thought the place was lovely! The staff were very friendly: always saying 'hello' when passing. The breakfast was immense! There was plenty of choice of different nationalities of food (the nasi goreng was the best!) There are restaurants on site, but also plenty of choice further along the beach. We had a garden room which was only a short stroll from the beach through beautiful, well tended gardens. The rooms were spacious and clean and the beachfront location perfect. I would recommend the Pelangi Beach to those wanting a peaceful, restful holiday.

    Really loved it!


    We were here three years ago and we had a wonderfull vacation. The resort is beautiful with a great open lobby with a lot of wood. In the evening there a local singers and you can order great cocktails. The resort is not too big and not too small. It had two beautiful pools and a nice beach. The rooms are great and ours had a big terrace with garden/pond view. The restaurants are not expensive and next door, at Casa del Mar, you can also have a great dinner. It is a very nice and peacefull place!!!
