Lovely hotel with really friendly and helpful staff. The room was nice and clean but we had to remind them to replace towels now and then. The views are absolutely breathtaking and definitely the best hotel to stay at in the area. It is quiet and as it has a private beach the public does not use it and neither...

Pros The beach is best part of the hotel. a huge white sand cove and very private. the waters are pristine and is crystal clear even at the waist. the neighboring cove is full of turtles and there is even a deck for snorkeling. the rooms are comfortable and recently updated.

This is no 5 star resort. If it didn't have a beautiful beach, this resort would fail and close. In fact it needs to close for a complete tidy up and a new management structure and train all front of house staff, chefs and really motivate & incentivise staff. Food was terrible, mine was sent back a number of times...

We had a very similar experience to many others who stayed here, service was slow or non-existent, drinks at the beach bar were difficult to get as the staff did not seem to know how to make cocktails and ingredients were always running out.

Upon arrival to redang we did not think its going to be a memorable visit.. the ferry was mediocre and the jetty was small.. the van to taaras was comfortable.. the resort is secluded and is ideal for a quiet retreat.. the rooms are pretty old and does not feel like 5 star.. but the beach and sea was amazing......

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
‘The Taaras’ is a bespoke Private Beach Residence, tucked away and hidden from the outside world on a small Island found just off the unspoilt East Coast of tropical Malaysia. Considered to be one of the most beautiful Island locations in the South China Sea, the Isle of Redang is home to our natural, yet stylish resort found on one of the most spectacular bays surrounded by one of the bluest oceans on earth. The resorts ethos is to provide a contemporary, barefoot luxury experience with warm Asian hospitality, remembered with a smile long into the future. The name of the property is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘TAARA’, meaning ‘Star or Apple of my eye’ as well as ‘Goddess of the Sea’ which are all represented and epitomised by our mermaid figurehead. The resort is managed by The Taaras Luxury Group, and was formerly known as Berjaya Redang Resort managed by Berjaya Hotels and Resorts. With the stylish suites and rooms, as well as a stunning five bedroom Private Villa perched high up on the cliff overlooking the ocean and resort below. The resort boasts commissioned furniture and bespoke photography of Redang Island and the landscapes of Malaysia. Each suite or room contains oversized beds and hand-picked linens and fabrics for your comfort. Most rooms and all suites have larger washrooms containing both bath tub and separate rain or monsoon shower (some with spa bathtubs looking out over the rainforest or the bay). Most residences have an outdoor balcony or verandah and our suites at the top of the cliff summit have spectacular views over the beach and ocean below. For clients who prefer or require further privacy ‘The Cliff Private Villa Bay & Sea View’, our private five bedroom residence perched high up on the cliff more than meets the requirements; private access, a Villa Host at your ‘beck and call’ as well as twenty four hour security; should it be a necessary requirement. The residence also enjoys a sixteen meter Infinity swimming pool, personal fitness room and both interior and exterior lounge. ... more   less
