We spent here our honeymoon, surely we won't forget Pulau Redang.
After landing at Terengganu airport we have been taken to the jetty, there we had to wait ca. 2 hours cause the boat only leaves at fixed times.
The resort is quite big and located in Redang widest beach, there are many other resort so forget about an exclusive place.
Our travel agent had an italian speaking guide in the resort that picked us at the pier and let us reach our room directly skipping the check-in procedure (she also took care of us for the rest of the stay, very helpfull even if english is largely spoken by the staff).
The deluxe sea view room is big and nicely decorated, the bathroom has two separate rooms (toilette and shower), the balcony wasn't huge but we could enjoy a great sea-view.
Not all the deluxe sea rooms have this view, some other couples had deluxe sea that had some huge palms in front of the balcony!
The overall cleanliness is quite ok, but due to the jugle covering all the isle, insects are a problem and even if asked the maid haven't sprayed the door and window daily.
We had a drawback with the fruits and sweet sparkling juice given as honeymoon present, we left the glasses and the empty plate on the table inside the room and found it completely covered by ants. We also found a spider in the shower room.
Anyhow we hadn't other complaints besides these.
Besides the other (poorer) resorts on the same beach there is not an "outside", hence to eat you have to use what is inside the resort, that means the buffet restaurant at the first floor in the main building, the "a la carte" restaurant at the ground floor, the beach bar (that also serve some sandwiches and burgers) and the Warong Food Court near the leisure room.
We only had the breakfast voucher and have been given a free bbq voucher, we enjoyed this option cause we haven't liked the buffet alot, while the bbq was nice (they cook meat and fish at the moment) also the Steamboat Galore we had on our last day was very nice (you need to reserve it before 2pm in the same day).
After a couple of days the resort used the "a la carte" restaurant for breakfast, trying to focus more on western guest, this was very smart cause the upfloor buffet was always very crowded.
My advice is to give a try to Warong Food Court, we enjoyed there alot, less people (the staff usually eat there) lower prices and better food.
The sea is gorgeuos and quite clean, you won't find any coral reef at hand (but many death corals lies on the beach) but there are alot of tropical fishes swimming.
Unfortunately the resorts and many guests do not respect the beach alot, I think Redang won't last for long.
We only went for the marine park tour (with another resort we only spent 20RM instead of 40RM asked by Laguna Resort), the place is beatifully stuffed with tropical fishes but far to overcrowded (the people fed the fishes even if there is a 20.000RM fine and 2 days in jail).
To keep it short, we liked the accomodation, beach and sea (don't understand why some many people stayed at the pool), the staff friendliness and relaxing atmosphere, they might improve the cleaning (even if acceptable, you cannot keep anything edible or just dirty in the room).
