We arrived, and after a twelve hour journey in the car, from Singapore, all we wanted to do was to sit down and have a drink! To our delite, we had a lovely refreshing drinks,...

We stayed at one of the beach villas. It was fine. Do not expect the Four Seasons or One and Only. My husband, myself and our our daughter were perfectly happy with our accommodation. Service at the beach bar was chaotic. Do try to avoid it. I pitied the employees ...obviously they were never properly trained. Buffet breakfast and dinner...

Fabulous Location! Lovely Rooms! Stunning Holidays! Great Pools! Decent Food! I Visited In July 2016, Over Hari Raya. But No Excuse, The Service Took 2 Hours For 2 Mango Juices And 2 Beers! It Took 12 Hours In Car And That's What I Got.

General info first: I've just stayed 11 nights at this resort as a birthday present to myself. I travel extensively and wanted to spoil myself.

It was our first time to Redang and we were very happy with our choice to stay at Taaras for 3 nights. We took 2 rooms at the Hill Deluxe and it was a smooth arrival. We drove our rented car to the Merang Jetty and took the scheduled boat transfer to the Redang Island. We have advised the hotel...

Getting to the resort is quite a long journey given that direct flights from KL to the island are no longer available. To make matters worse, logistics on the island is poorly organised and the van used to transport guests from the jetty to the resort is ill maintained. It's my fifth time to this resort and the beach remains...

Location Redang is truly a beautiful island, the hotel grounds are very nice. Great nature surrounding you, the beach is stunning and the water is perfect with a small reef just off the beach. The gardens are pleasant but not as manicured as you would expect at a 5 star resort and the swimming pool looked a bit unkept. Room...

Absolutely loved the beautiful beach and sea at Taaras, however the hotel/resort itself is not the luxury/5 star experience it claims to be. We stayed for around 2 weeks so hopefully this is a balanced view over that period. We were firstly surprised at the cost of the boat transfers to the hotel from the mainland. We know that other...

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
