“FABULOUS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Spent 5 nights at the Rebak Marina Resort and had an absolutely fabulous time. My brother and sister-in-law were moored in the marina, so we enjoyed both the resort facilities and marina facilities. Pool is awesome, swim up bar excellent service and drinks. Happy hours are great. Food at the resort is EXCELLENT, buffets are sumptuous. Lovely beach. Room was gorgeous with a deck facing the ocean, very comfortable bed, totally awesome ensuite with huge walk in shower and separate tub, double sinks and tons of closet space. Staff are AMAZING!! If you are considering Rebak, consider no more and BOOK! Oh and very good ferry service to Langkawi. Though if you are looking for the party scene, Rebak is not, it is quiet and relaxing and wonderful.

Room Tip: request a room with ocean view.

This was my second visit to the Rebak island resort (my last trip was 5 years ago) and I was extremely disappointed with the way things turned out.
On the outside its still very pretty. But we slept only one night in four. That too only after putting on 3 mosquito mats and an electronic repellant. there are two drains near the kids play area which are uncovered and are splendid breeding ground for mosquitoes.
The food was terrible to begin with but a kindly master chef decided to take charge when we finally complained that this was just not right for a supposedly five star resort.
The service was ordinary too. Lots of smiles all around but nothing got done… from timely room turn ups to replacement of toiletries, towels, sheets etc.
Even the foreign help started to make faces if you asks them for a ride to your room.
I then found out that this property is not owned by the Taj group but franchised out to someone else. I seriously think they should review this strategy. cause I sure as hell didn't feel like I was on a Taj property.
I have traveled al over Malaysia and most of the world. there are resorts in Malaysia like Pangkor Laut which are a thousand times better for half the price.

Room Tip: the beach facing rooms have a stunning view

As a family of 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 8, we stayed in a superior seafront room with a king size bed (but the bed was actually a super king and we were comfortable). 

Although we stayed for only a night, we had more than enough time to enjoy the resort and beach. We kayaked at high tide, swam in the pool, played on the beach, spotted the oriental hornbill on the trees, caught (and released) sea creatures such as a jelly fish and a flower crab the size of a child's palm, and went for the 45min guided morning walk which turned out to be a very enjoyable exercise as we ran a little, walked backwards a little and laughed a lot.

Rebak Island Resort is a superb destination for resort lovers and families with children at a reasonable price tag. The resort's tranquility, cleanliness and hospitality will make you forget that you are in Malaysia.

When we booked the Resort, we thought it to be just a resort, but the moment we reached the boarding point of Boat, it was realized we are heading for an excitement stay, A Island Resort on Island. The sceneric beauty, fresh air and peaceful environment was beyond imagination. The staff was very cordial and helpful., not generally found on resorts. The rooms were facing the soothing Sea with lush green and Clear water. For those enjoying Drinks beach side Bars and candle light dinners added spice to trip. A morning Herbal Walk was amazing & educative.
Overall it was more worth than what we paid.

Very nice resort, great pool, excellent food, nice room! Internet is in the room and around the resort, but is slow. Lots of great nature, saw many birds, and a monitor lizard! Great Beach, and very friendly, would recommend to a friend for a good break.

This is supposed to be my first review at tripadvisor wooohooo! You will fall in love with this place. It has some amazing scenic beauty, wonderful food with all the luxuries available at one place. They have amazing service standards and courteous staff. You must try their barbeque special and beach side bar. Will highly recommend this place to all.

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.
