Redang is a beatiful island and The Taraas is, without any doubt, the best structure available completely spread on an outsanding beach. Almost perfect. I think, considering also the location, this hotel should aim at perfection. Given its current 5 star ranking and the price set (compared to other hotel nearby) the level of expectation of the customers, mostly italian... More

My husband and I were really excited about spending 4 days relaxing in this 5 star resort after a hectic year. It was recommended by a friend of the family but after reading reviews on here I knew to expect relatively poor service in a beautiful location. I travel extensively for work and have certain expectations around service, particularly in... More

We had booked a package with the hotel and arrived about 2 hours before standard check in time. We were told the room was not ready.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The beach is nice and clean and is literally a few meters swim from wonderful snorkeling spots.

Stayed in Garden Suite for 7 nights for our honeymoon in July/August.

The beach was really amazing: the colour of the water, the sand, the tranquility, the fauna (even turtles swimming right there next to you!). It has a private beach with very few guests at the hotel so it was awesome in that sense. However, the hotel turned out to be quite not well preserved and too expensive for what it... More

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
