Firstly, there will be no heavy rain all day, no terrible thunderstorms or any sort of torrential rain storms. Weather on this island is quite hard to predict. Sometime you could see sun shining during the rainy season and sometimes it rains during the sunny season.

However, if you still want to choose between Pelangi and Sheraton, we would suggest staying in Sheraton's sea front jacuzzi room.
