4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed there for 7 nights. The place was great even though it is a bit expensive. We had standard room which was not nice. It has 2 restaurants and the food is quite good. There were problems with the quality of service at the restaurants (they were quite slow and the communication in English was problematic). Environment in resort... More

Stayed 3 nights in middle of Sept, in Cliff Bay View Suite. The best thing about Taaras is the beach: I have to say that it is absolutely world class! The sand is white and powdery, the water is crystal clear and when the sun is shining strongly you get an amazing gradient of blues and whites which seems to... More

Taaras' beach must be the best beach in the world! That itself is more than enough to make this place a winner! The white sand as soft as powder and the gentle lapping of the sea into the bay offer that piece of paradise universally dreamed of. The chalets which we stayed is look very nice. Comfy beds. Huge bathrooms.... More

Beach - there are 2 major beaches in Redang. One is called Long Beach where several other hotels chains are, the other one is fully owned by Taaras which is great. You actually pay for its exclusivity. Nice, serene waters. Less rocky that Long Beach. Perfect for swimming. You can snorkel at the rocky sides but not much to see... More

Taaras has probably the most beautiful beach I have been on in a long time with clear blue water and white sand. It was clean, plenty to see snorkeling and able to swim with turtles in the next Bay. The resort was on the pricey side considering the rooms were a bit dated (although clean) and the service at the... More

We booked this place for our family of 4 despite the so-so reviews people were leaving behind. We got to Kuala Terengannu airport and took a taxi from there to the Merang Jetty (save yourself the money for a bus transfer - it is overpriced and a taxi option is much cheaper - which was even indirectly confirmed by a...

An absolute gem of a place. The rooms were really fantastic. Comfy beds, HUGE bathroom and perfect view of the private beach. The beach itself was a beautifully quiet spot with white sands and azure sea. It had its own private reef which we went snorkelling in. It had an abundance of wildlife in calm waters. We stopped for a... More

Just came back from a beautiful relaxing stay at The Taaras resort. I can't hide that before getting there we were a bit nervous regarding the bad reviews written here but everything turned out to be great and not too annoying. As this is part of Asia, people are definitely more relaxed and laid back that western cultures, but I... More

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
