Questions about Meritus Pelangi (and vicinity)

We've been enjoying KL for the last few days. We are heading to Langkawi later this week where we'll spend 10 days at the Meritus Pelangi. Looking for information about where to go to do laundry (does the resort offers self-laundry facilities) and recommended restaurants nearby (within 30 min walking distance). Finally, for those of you that have been there recently, any advices on things to do?

(I have read reviews, but it seems that from months to months / seasons to seasons, things change greatly... looking for the most recent updates!)

Thanks in advance!

Langkawi hardly changes at all so whatever you have already read will still apply.

There are lots and lots of restaurants within walking distance of the Pelangi and everyone who posts on here will have their particular favourite. You will be spoilt for choice!

The hotel will have laundry facilities but at a price. They will do it for you charging so much per item.

There is a laundry in Pantai Cenang (which is where the Pelangi is), it's somewhere near Underwater World. There is a previous post on hear about this laundry so if you do a search I'm sure you will find it.

Glad you enjoyed KL now go to Langkawi to relax...

Thare are stacks of restaurants within a 10 minute walk from the hotel, plus more in Kuah, the town, but that is about 30 minute drive by car or scooter.

We hired both at a shop called the T shop on a daily basis, then toured around the island.

We had laundry done close by to Pelangi - it is a few minutes walk into Pantai Cenang on the opposite side of the road of the hotel,you will see a side road with other resorts and a sign for laundry. We had a number of items washed for about RM5, not ironed but everything was so well folded that it did not need ironing. This is much closer for you than the one near the Aquarium.

Enjoy Langkawi, we certainly did.
