Last visted 9 months ago when we were given free upgrade from Garden Suite to Beach front suite. Included fantastic buffet breakfasts and dinners.

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

We (veteran beach resort fans and regular travelers) stayed here in Early July for 7 days in a Garden Suite. Things started falling apart in our room on day 1 (ceiling fan, TV) but that's when we found out how incredibly flexible and friendly the personnel at the Resort were. Everything was fixed/replaced within hours and the holiday turned into... More

We spent 3 nights here on our honeymoon in April, The Taaras was our luxury part of our trip - we did a one night stop over at The Sutra Beach resort in TGG before getting a boat transfer over, that was about $60 a night - so we had high expectations. We had a hill deluxe room, it's spacious,... More

Stayed at Garden Suite for 4 days between 25th to 28th May. Love the nature in the Resort - trees, plants, a nice stream with many tadpoles in them, an occasional monitor lizard, birds singing and nice sunshine. Love the big bathroom. Love the fact the resort is not crowded. There 's probably 7 to 8 tables during meals. The... More

As I arrived at the hotel, I was really impressed with the colour of the sea. It's turquoise blue colour and it was so clear that you can see all the way to the bottom and my first thought is that "we are gonna have a great holiday in this tropical paradise". We signed up for the sea view room... More

Beautiful waters, friendly staff but I will not go back again. I can make do with the over-priced food, with no water supply on the morning we were supposed to check out; but the sand flies on the beach were a complete turn off. Every single one of us was bitten. My husband and I had over 50 bites on... More

Honestly as this is the No.1 rating resort in Redang island, their charge is also very high. However we thought it was not worth to pay to them. The beach is fantanstic as of its location, it...

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
