Vivanta by Taj Rebak Island, Langkawi
Ranked #9 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 8, 2013

First let me start by saying that this is an awesome island and the views are just breathtaking especially on sunny days. Tha cabana is awesome, where you can sit and relax for an entire day. The breakfast menu was good. Spa service was excellent. We had been there to celebrate our anniversary and the head chef Jose Thachil presented us a surprise cake which really made our day. Dinner buffet was delicious, especially the fish and chicken tandoor. They have speed boats ferrying customers to and fro from Port Langkasuka. But they have a fixed schedule. Your luggage is taken care of by the staff. You can even hire car for rental from the Langkasuka port which will make it a lot easier to move around in Langkawi. From the head chef to all the other staff, we were given personal attention in every aspect. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

Stayed at the Taj Rebak island resort from 24th to 27th November- two words to describe the place "Simply Awesome "

Pros- Located off the coast of Langkawi the resort is located on a private island with its very own private marina and beach. The resort is more oriented towards families and those on a honeymoon.

Rooms - Stayed in a partial sea view room and the room was neat and clean. The best part of the room was the huge bathroom with deep soak tub and separate shower room. The bed was nice but the pillows can be better.

Pool- The resort has a nice pool where you can laze around for hours.
The resort has a tennis court, squash court and a gym (not good).

The breakfast buffet offers a nice combination of European and Asian cuisine.

Cons - You have to stick by the resort's boat timings if you want to go to the mainland for shopping or tours if not they charge a hefty fee for arranging a boat.

The Dinner Buffet on offer was kinda alright nothing much to right about given the price of 85 ringgit per person.

What makes this resort special is the people who go all out to make your stay comfortable. On whole a great place to visit will definitely be back . :) :) :) :) :)

Room Tip: Book early and you will definitely get a free upgrade.

I went to Rebak as part of a very diverse group of people, we were all there to celebrate the Wedding of very dear friends. The staff from the Hotel were fantastic, accommodating us and made sure we lacked nothing. They were always very helpful and reachable.
The rooms are lovely with a wonderful view of the sea and the islands of the region, very clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed their varied buffed for the first night, delicious food and the staff were very happy to tell the curious people more about the food they were cooking. The other nights we enjoyed the option of making our own barbecue since a member of our group is a chef.
Their breakfast is delicious with many options including made at the spot dishes of western and oriental flavours.
The location is amazing, beautiful paradisiac place, we also enjoyed the Island Hopping Tour that departed from the marina in the Island. A very hassle free and relaxing place, great value for money. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing stretch on their holiday.

Here on the Gold Coast of Australia we have excellent hotels and resorts to cater for all occasion and price range to suit all budgets... If YOU are looking for a Private Island with total Hospitality given by the warmest of Malays and perfectly chosen staff and recruits you will not be disappointed in Rebak Island Resort... Sandeep (GM) has the friendliest nature along with his wife and his entire staff offer genuine service from the moment we were collected at the Airport then onto the private ferry to Sue in reception greeted us with every service and fun activity package.. in our very spacious room we were surprised daily with all the special touches from the beauty of flowers on our bed to a fruit platter and bottle red wine ...to chocolates ..and a smile from housekeeping on every room service.. The staff at this resort INSPIRE ME and ENCOURAGE ME to act In the same Hospitable manner in my day to day existence and my work place...I too am In customer service but learn more in my holiday recreation break to give my very best with great Enthusiasm.. I recommend Rebak Island Resort for all of your family and friends for a safe friendly peaceful scenic personalised Island Treat... Thankyou my new friends at Rebak...see you again next year ... kindest of regards Margaret and Vicki ..

Room Tip: the best room is the Garden View suite at the end (817) or 820 opposite the Spa and Gym..if you like...

The resort is a gud one,got all the standard fare, but what stands out is the personalized service. When we walked in, the front desk was expecting us, they greeted us with a personalized welcome letter, they had all the details of our package, helped us book our sunset cruise, reminded us at the departure time, handed us towels n water for the journey, next day packed breakfast for us for our morning departure flight, heard all our concerns patiently..and yes, they serve comprehensive set of good north Indian food, if they don't have it listed on the menu, they are happy to customize it
So you don't miss the fact that it's got only one pool, and one restaurant.
Also the rooms are super spacious (but if there is movement in the room above, the noise is loud), the beach is decent..

Room Tip: We had a bit of noise from the room upstairs as the wooden floor really magnifies all sounds, so opt...

My first time at a Taj hotel, and I was very impressed. Beautiful resort on a beautiful island with all the trimmings. Staff are wonderful, very welcoming and great at their jobs. Facilities, from the rooms to the pool to the restaurant are all excellent.
You can choose to do a lot of nothing - lounge by the pool or on the beach - but you would miss out on a lot. Try the cooking demonstration, the kayaking, the bikes, the morning nature walk, tennis and squash, tour the gardens, go the movies, and go to the spa. You won't regret it!
Excellent resort and very good value for the money.

My family thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Rebak. A choice that we never regretted.

The staff exemplified what real customer service is all about, and thus ensuring we had a great stay throughout.

Special thanks go to Rajen Krishnasamy (Executive Assistant Manager - F&B) who had significantly contributed to our great stay.

Highlights -
a) Very nice and clean beach.
b) Comfy room.
c) Efficiently managed boat rides between Rebak island and Port Langkasuka.
d) Airport to port was several minutes away, so it saves us time.
e) Last but not least, well trained customer-serviced staff

Again, thank you, and will come back to this hotel when we visit Langkawi again.
