“Wah Taj!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

It was a very good relaxation at the resort which was most needed for this holiday. Wonderful location of the resort, the amazing commutes in the speed boats, calm and quiet ambience made the stay absolute worth the holiday.

My husband and I spent four nights (14th – 17th of December 2013) at the Rebak Island Resort with our two small children. The beach was beautiful, the pool was perfect for both adults and kids, and the staff was absolutely amazing - especially with the children. The breakfast was also very good. Although we did not opt to include it in our reservation, we ended up buying it separately and it was well worth it. Still, it was quite expensive this way, so I highly recommend you choose the breakfast included option.

As for the room, we had a beach side room that had a great view of the beach and ocean, as well as a nice balcony. The room was spacious and very clean. It was modern and though the internet was not that strong (Skype was a challenge), it was much better than I expected. Although none of the rooms were that far from the main pool, restaurant, etc., the staff was happy to shuttle guests around on the golf carts as needed.

In sum, we loved it. I almost cried when we got to our next hotel at another resort on the main island which didn’t come close to the quality of the Rebak, despite being in the same price range. Why did we choose to split our vacation between two hotels? Well, when I booked our hotels on line (pre-paid), I was worried we’d feel isolated if we spent all eight nights on Rebak Island. What a mistake I made. After the mad crush of the main island, I'll take isolation any day. Also, the resort offers a ferry that runs back and forth (about a 15 min ride) about every hour during the day. Although I didn’t go there, I was told by other guests that there was also a store on the island that offers decent priced snacks/beverages, in addition to the good restaurant. In addition, the hotel can arrange tours for you (we did one called “Island Hopping”) as well as what I heard (and agree) is the best parasailing in Langkawi (with Naam). Although we stayed in a total of six hotels in Malaysia during our holiday vacation, not one compared to this hotel.

I visited Taj Rebak in Dec. 13 with my wife and spend 3 days there and it was an amazing experience. THe rooms are excellent and we stayed in the sea view room and the feeling of watching the sunrise from your room balcony sipping your morning coffee is just beyond words. The food is excellent, our food preference are vegetarian and we got a whole lot of veg menu, Chef Jose was very accommodating and made us feel at home and got us all what we wanted. the resort also offers host lot of other activities including kayaking, nature walk, tennis and you would always have something or the other to explore else stay put on the lovely beach.

Awesome views, relaxing beeches, totally personalised service and uber friendly staff...

Whats not to like... perhaps mosquitos.

The food is very good as well and the chef created customised dishea for us which was very useful for my vegetarian family.

Pros

I spent 5 days with my wife in the resort and it was one of the best trips that I had with her.
The staff are all brilliant and really look after you. The food in the restaurant was delicious and if you are a sea food lover then there is a wide variety available. for vegetarian there are Indian chefs one of them is Mahesh he will cook you amazing food if you discuss with him before ordering. The room were cozy,comfortable and had a brilliant view.
Lot of in house activities available by the resort that you can able tennis, tennis, kayaking, looking at the flora & fauna, swimming in the sea and pool and sunbathing etc.
Breakfast was pretty good too. If you are planning to go to langkawi stays some nights at Rebak
to just relax and enjoy , I would recommend it to every one to go there once to enjoy.

Cons
Only one that the last boat leaves at 7.45 and after that the boats are chargeable so to enjoy the late night party's you have to pay a little extra.

Room Tip: Take the sea facing deluxe room to enjoy the view . Hire a bike for travelling in with in the city...

Rebok island resort is a stunning and an amazing place to relax. A private island with a beautiful beach, beach facing spacious and comfortable rooms with a very silent ambiance and service, clean and big bathrooms, and delicious restaurant...The service of the staff is very much courteous and they never say no to any of your demands. Also you can enjoy free in-island activites like kayaking,tennis, swimming pool, table tennis etc. The only negative is that the last boat to the resort is at 745 pm, so you cant enjoy the night life in Langkawi outside the resort..
