My husband and my parents spent five nights on Rebak Island to relax before travelling to Singapore. We are so happy we chose the hotel - our entire stay felt like a dream.

The hotel itself is beautifully landscaped and set on a private island just off the mainland and is only accessible by boat. It is a short walk from the private marina to the hotel but staff are always eager to give you a lift in a golf cart. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife - lots of hornbills, monitor lizards and we even saw a baby alligator in a storm drain. Rooms are large and luxurious with a spacious balcony, bathroom has shower, bath, his and her's sinks and large wardrobes. We had a gorgeous view looking over to the mainland which was a dream to wake up to. We were given free bottles of water in our room every day so never went thirsty, and the rooms were kept spotless.

You can catch a boat every half an hour or so over to the mainland so it's easy to explore the mainland of Langkawi, which we did several times. Wait until the last boat back and you'll get treated to the breathtaking sunset.

The pool area is gorgeous and has a swim up bar (many cocktails and sticks of satay were had!), and was never terribly busy. The beach is also gorgeous, and staff are always about for a drinks service.

The restaurant has both an excellent a la carte menu and a buffet, both of which were very reasonably priced. The food was fabulous, with a selection of Asian and Oriental treats as well, and not too many Western items (which we enjoyed, why travel all the way to Malaysia to eat a fry up?!). Try the satay and the laksa - you won't be disappointed!

The staff absolutely make the hotel. Everyone was cheerful and friendly and would always wish you a good morning if they passed you. They absolutely bent over backwards to make sure our stay was perfect and we were treated like royalty. I cannot fault them.

The whole stay was very reasonable, we were shocked that our final bill did not total more considering it included all our dinners, drinks and snacks.

Thank you so much to the staff for a truly incredible stay - should funds suffice, we will be back!

Spent 4 nights at Rebak Island for a "chill" and duty free experience. As we flew from Maldives to Malaysia it was refreshing price experience, we were paying in Maldives $30 for wine and $5 for beer, on the main Island (bit dearer at Rebak) we could buy spirits for $8 a bottle and beer was 70c from supermarket. Island was a ferry boat ride to shopping (via cheap taxi) China town in Kuah was 30% cheaper than Airport for good malt whisky, etc. They also like to haggle. Food and drink were good at resort, happy hour (actually 2 hrs) were well patronised, pool was great. Only regret was we had flown from Maldives and can not compare to Langkawi (beach wise) though it was ok. Mossies were dreadful and we were always topping up repellant, probably the only complaint. Rooms were spacious with water views and Room service was great (I think he was Aysol) nothing was a problem, all staff were happy, attentive and friendly.

Room Tip: There are nature walks and there is a "special" route to Red Beach which is through the "jungle" to a lovely deserted beach which has lots of drift rubbish due to the Monsoons ignore that and it is a good walk, especially if you hire mountain bike as well

Went there for our honeymoon in March and we were not disappointed.it felt like paradise during our 5 days there.Staff were friendly and efficient and provided excellent service.We had a sea view deluxe room which was spacious and comfortable.Definitely worth paying more to get a sea view room to soak in the beauty.Self contained resort definitely worth visiting.We'll be back!

This was our second visit to Rebak, first time was back in 2009. The place was exactly how we remember it! Everything at this resort was just so pleasant. In fact, we find the food to be much better compared to our previous visit. The menu was pretty extensive and we enjoyed everything we had. We even went for parasailing. The price was quite steep but it was worth it! Will definitely be back at Rebak whenever we need a quick getaway!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms with direct access to the beach is the best!
