We arrived by an early morning flight from Kualalumpur and checked into Rebak Island resort – A Taj Hotel. The hotel had arranged for airport transfers so the cab took us to Rebak island’s jetty point from where we had to take a jetty till the island resort. Oh my god! The boat ride was phenomenal, the sight of the clear endless sea was simply breath-taking and in about 20 mins or so we reached the resort. The entrance of the resort is a marina, where travellers from across the globe have parked their boats and have travelled to Langkawi from their country in that boat – How exciting.
The resort is such a delight, being managed by the Taj Group’s Management. The resort is spread on the rebak island and has both pool facing and sea facing rooms. Since we arrived before our check in time, the staff was so sweet to offer us a room for a wash and change till our room got ready. Finally we got our sea facing room, the view was simply divine. We could walk from our room to the hotel’s private beach. We were on cloud 9. The hotel gave us a complementary bottle of their finest merlot red wine, a fruit platter and a welcome cake, clubbed with some restaurant vouchers with some great deals.
The resort has a small departmental store selling alcohol and some basic items, if you are too fussy about using the 5 star resort’s expensive room service. The restaurants serve amazing seafood, the rooms are huge, the resort is simply divine with a grand pool and a great private beach. The resort never makes you want to go back home. It is truly a home away from home. When in Langkawi, stay at the Taj.
