The Taj at Rebak Island is a quiet resort situated on its own little island off Langkawi. The staff are friendly and the facility is tidy. If you are looking for a quiet get away to relax then the Taj is great. If you want to be near a little more activity then you may find it too quiet. The staff were very helpful in organising a rental car on the main island and attending to other requests.
The pool is the main place to hang out and is nice. If you want to be cool head to the library where the AC is great. The restaurant is good but not great. Prices are satisfactory and not too expensive. The resort has wireless internet throughout the main buildings and around the pool. It is not available in the rooms further away from the main building. At night there is live music in the bar yet very few people hang out there. The resort was very quiet during our stay with around 20 - 30 percent occupancy.
The Taj was built in the 1980's and is showing its age and looking a bit tired in places. The facility needs some major investment to bring it up to current standards. The room was comfortable yet the AC just barely made a difference in temperature. The minibar drinks were just barely cool so go to the island store where the soft drinks and beer are cold and cheap. Take plenty of mozzie spray and repellent as the mozzie invasion hits just before sunset. The gym is minimal.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Taj. I would recommend splitting a stay at Langkawi on Rebak and at another facility on the main island.
