Location was perfect. The beach was very clean, waters was clear, weather was warm and humid. Various wildlife, water creatures, colorful fishes or from the jungle behind the resort. I'm actually very happy to see that the resort tried their best to keep the wildlife as is. There were even some monitor lizards spotted walking by, not bothered by the... More

I went with my wife and daughter to the Taraas last month. We wanted to do a holiday where we could be pampered and relax, that was not too expensive either. we were not disappointed. Well the Taraas is expensive like all 5 star properties. A pint of beer is 33 RM. (no beer available in the near by shops... More

The Taaras is located on a beautiful beach, powdery sand and blue clear waters. The beach was the only reason we chose to give this hotel two stars and not one star. The property has a lot of potential given its unique location and glorious beach, but lacks in every other element of hospitality. If you are happy to spend... More

Redang Island is one of the best family beach holiday location in Malaysia and possibly SEA. This is my second time to Redang. My first trip was about 17 years ago during our honeymoon. We had a great time!!! .....and probably even better time than we had over the past 5 years of travel to Bora Bora, Moorea, Maldives and... More

The level of cleanliness at this hotel is appalling. The entire hotel was dirty and not cleaned properly. The gym has equipment that is a safety hazard, covered in dead flies and leaves you covered in dirt from head to toe after use.The breakfast buffet was covered in flies and the supposedly fresh food was stale, which I suspect was...

I went to Taraas Beach Resort in March 2016. I only have good things to say about this resort as they have their own private beach. The water was VERY clear, and very undisturbed. I rented a Kayak, and encountered 2 sea turtles! Taraas is safe, and you pay using your room number. This way, you need not carry cash... More

We were taken good care of the moment we got off the boat to Redang. The rooms (garden deluxe) were good size, clean and featured good AC. The location and beach was breathtaking, just like in a movie. We tried several activities (snorkling, diving..) and had a great time! The reason why we dont give Taaras top score is two... More

First time visiting Redang for my husband and I. We took a 50 min flight from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terengganu and requested hotel transfer from Taaras. The transfer was handled very professionally. It's a 45 min drive from airport to Merang pier, a 45 min boat ride to the island and a 5min drive from Redang pier to the... 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
