I was considering giving the Taaras a 'very good' on account of its location alone. The private beach is beautiful and being able to more or less wade out to a reef to snorkel is amazing. As the resort was not very full, there was also a sense of privacy and exclusivity as the beach might have had just another... More

We enjoyed amazing stay with perfect service at the most beautiful room with the clear blue bay view. I want to come back to this place. Defenetly come here and swim with turtles few meters from the beach! Nice, clean and luxury designed modern hotel.

Let me begin by saying that I would have loved to have given this hotel a 5/5 rating but so many things happened while we were there, that has pushed it down to a 2/5. If you fly into Kuala Terengganu, check what time your flight arrives, as the ferry to Redang Island has set times (which are not published... More

The Taaras Resort was a beautiful place to visit - certainly worth the effort to get there. But it pays to do your research! Firstly, this island is completely dominated by the seasons. We went in February which was the so-called end of the north east monsoon, but apart from the Taaras Resort, not much else on the island was... More

This is our 4th time at the beautiful resort. Previous three times were under Berjaya Redang Resort & Spa, which we totally enjoyed ourselves. This is the first time that we stayed under the new management. Glad to see some familiar faces at the concierge and the recreation center. We were there for 3 days with a company of friends... More

The resort is not cheap, which does not reflect in the service and food quality received. Let me start from the pros: 1. Nice private beach, crystal clear waters 2. Nice rooms and well-kept grounds 3. Gym overlooking the beach and sea was good. Now lets see the cons: 1. The beach brasserie is a rip off. I ordered a... More

Arriving at the island of Redang via Berjaya air, we were quickly greeted by staff of the Taaras, helping us with our bags to their shuttle van which brought us to the resort 5 minutes away.

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
