Step inside and there is a thoughtful nod to luxury new world comforts.

A Romantic Honeymoon Getaway and a Fun Family Holiday
Somehow or other this idyllic resort manages to please the needs of families with kids, honeymooners and romantic couples, all at the same time. How does it do this?

Beach and pool games, fun putting at the resorts Mini Golf Park, face and t-shirt painting, finger drawing, swimming lessons, fishing activities, and many more adventurous pursuits. Hopefully by the evening the kids are happily exhausted and their parents, knowing that they have had such a fun-packed day, will see them begging to be tucked up in their beds for a good night’s sleep.
Then again, those parents who want to spend more time playing with their children, and indeed secretly would like to join in the fun activities at the Kids Club, can share quality time with their offspring and connect with their artistic creativity, with Batik painting by the pool. After which if they so wish it’s a hop and a dip to the sunken bar for a refreshing cocktail or cooling juice.
A Paradise Resort for Water Sports and Sight Seeing Island Excursions
Pelangi beach is a playground for sports lovers; including scuba diving and sailing. Take a boat trip and visit the bat caves and fishwater lakes, sail past the exotic shady mangroves as the eagles swoop down from high in the sky, and visit the remarkable island of Dayang Bunting; where mischievous monkeys tease the tourists.

Dining at Pelangi Beach
At sundown the exotic birdsong beckons guests to the floodlit beach for a sumptuous barbecue feast, and afterwards a traditional island entertainment – the Malaysian dancers; so joyful, graceful and refreshingly innocent.
