We adhored the bedrooms, they are spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The staff were all so friendly and the service was really good. I can truly recommend the... More

All in all The Taaras will not disappoint. Pros: The beach is absolutely SPECTACULAR. White soft sand, crystal clear water and only accessible to the hotel guests. I stayed at the hotel during easter holiday and seemed to be busy but not crowded (supposedly busy season is jun thru aug). The dive center is very professional and well organized. The... More

The Taaras was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful setting on a lovely beach. The only downside is the food is mediocre and the food service was just downright bad. The wait staff are really wonderful but under-staffed and under-trained.

The Taaras owns a very special beach with many species of wild animals (stingray, turtle,...). The speciality in it that the beach is available for the resort guests. If you can focus on that unique natural experience The Taaras provides something special for you. But.. I think a resort like Taaras has to be more demanding and integrated about 1)... More

This place is awesome. We were there right before the season started mid Jan. The place was fairly empty still. The breakfast was super awesome. The beach was long and great water. We took walks into the village - it's a small strip with a few local restaurants and a small store. It was a great time meeting some locals... More

Pros : 1. Stayed in Hill Deluxe but was given a room with good sea view ... I love the room and the view. 2. Very large room with lots of space and clean. I love the ceiling fan as that means I can have fresh air coming into the room without feeling hot. 3. Saw a lot of Happy... More

If you like a pristine resort with peaceful crowd, this is the place to be! Our family of four (with one infant and one toddler) had an amazing time at Taaras. The place is so peaceful and quiet that we get to spend quality time onsite. Lawrence, the assistant executive manager, is marvelous. Our stay wouldn't be perfect without his... More

Amazing white sandy with clear water beach Rooms are great and so was the service. Staffs are friendly and helpful whenever there is need to make any arrangements. Summarizing all, at the Taraas Beach Resort, with the setup and the 5 star service one should get a feeling of being and enjoying in your own private island.

It was one the clearest waters we've ever seen! The beach is perfect with white fine sand, rocks only on the sides to allow great snorkeling and super friendly service. We went there as day guests because the hotel was fully booked and they welcomed us everyday with a smile. We had organised walks, dives and rented boards for the... More

Booked this hotel in anticipation of super-service and luxury but we were sadly dissapointed. Staff is hired from the island itself and they are not well educated for a 5 star hotel. Not their fault,but the management. Had to wait 15 minutes for the morning coffee in the restaurant, no newspaper. Normally you would get a little fruit in the... More
