“The BEST service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

I stayed here with my family for three days and it was amazing. The grounds are beautiful and kept very well. The surroundings and activities on offer is great! On the first night we went to the restaurant there and I had the beef burger and it was delicious!

The biggest plus for me staying here was the service. Never in my life have I experienced quality such as Rebak Island Resort offers. Every.single.staff.member is helpful, friendly, respectful, understanding and just the best service I've come across. Its not the case of one or two good staff members, it's EVERY one of them and it truly makes you feel like a happier person when you're on holiday.

Definitely recommend this place!
Also it was super handy that they provided you with a mosquito repellent disperser.

All the other reviews talk about the strength of this hotel being the quality of service. This is so true. We've just had 8 nights of relaxation and comfort. We were especially helped by great and friendly staff like Anwar by the pool, Danyel at activities, Bayu in the bar and Vinetta in the restaurant. There were so many others. If you have any real problem or concern, Abdul the evening duty manager makes it all go away. Truly a hotel for a good holiday.

The property is fantastic. Lots to do in the property itself besides what you can do in Langkawi. The service standards are exceptional. Stayed there for 3 nights and I am already planning my next visit.

a beautiful scenic, wonderful and calm place with all luxuries that you can think of. best thing was the location and services. staff was overwhelmingly co-operative. beach side bar and barbeques. special movie screenings. kayaking and so many other activities were enough to keep you busy and ensure enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: any beach facing room will be a great deal

We absolutely loved the BBQ dinner organised by the hotel. The choice of food was amazing and the service was impeccable. To sum it up it all was very reasonably priced. To top it up the hotel accommodated all of us on their staff boat to bring us back to the main island. Special thanks to Executive Chef Jose, who took out time to set up the menu and ensured that everything was served nice and piping hot. He also took care of some of our last minute requests. Highly recommended.

It was a very good relaxation at the resort which was most needed for this holiday. Wonderful location of the resort, the amazing commutes in the speed boats, calm and quiet ambience made the stay absolute worth the holiday.

My husband and I spent four nights (14th – 17th of December 2013) at the Rebak Island Resort with our two small children. The beach was beautiful, the pool was perfect for both adults and kids, and the staff was absolutely amazing - especially with the children. The breakfast was also very good. Although we did not opt to include it in our reservation, we ended up buying it separately and it was well worth it. Still, it was quite expensive this way, so I highly recommend you choose the breakfast included option.

As for the room, we had a beach side room that had a great view of the beach and ocean, as well as a nice balcony. The room was spacious and very clean. It was modern and though the internet was not that strong (Skype was a challenge), it was much better than I expected. Although none of the rooms were that far from the main pool, restaurant, etc., the staff was happy to shuttle guests around on the golf carts as needed.

In sum, we loved it. I almost cried when we got to our next hotel at another resort on the main island which didn’t come close to the quality of the Rebak, despite being in the same price range. Why did we choose to split our vacation between two hotels? Well, when I booked our hotels on line (pre-paid), I was worried we’d feel isolated if we spent all eight nights on Rebak Island. What a mistake I made. After the mad crush of the main island, I'll take isolation any day. Also, the resort offers a ferry that runs back and forth (about a 15 min ride) about every hour during the day. Although I didn’t go there, I was told by other guests that there was also a store on the island that offers decent priced snacks/beverages, in addition to the good restaurant. In addition, the hotel can arrange tours for you (we did one called “Island Hopping”) as well as what I heard (and agree) is the best parasailing in Langkawi (with Naam). Although we stayed in a total of six hotels in Malaysia during our holiday vacation, not one compared to this hotel.
