Beautiful hotel and idyllic location
Great rooms, good luxury but what they charged for the speedboat charter from the mainland is daylight robbery.

service was very disappointing
great location... but if you want great service steer clear of this resort. it is very overpriced considering the level of service that they provide drinks are always very very very slow coming.... waiters in restaurants are completely clueless .... they don't refresh minibar or toiletries unless you call and request... The list goes on and on.... seriously if you are going to spend this kind of money this place is a rip off

Lovely hotel in great location but...
Lovely hotel in great location. We had a great time but for the first two nights the service was not good, not sure if the manager came back after that but suddenly everything improved. Disappointed that in a 4/5 star hotel our washbasin would have a huge crack accross it, there was an unpleasant smell in the lower rooms(hillside) people's food was left out in the corridor after room service for days. Caught the ferry from Merang jetty where we left our car and were taken back to a different jetty and then had an hours minibus ride back to our car, without the hotel even informing us before we left. All in all we had a good time...the dive school was fantastic. The sea and beach beautiful and the food good but can't score it an excellent after having all these issues.

More like 3.5 that 5 stars
Was there with a friend and we both thought that 3.5 or 4 stars would be more fitting for this hotel. Everything is nice enough, but the service (especially at the restaurant/beach bar) was very slow and the food was overpriced and only mediocre. Luckily there are other lunch and dinner options in the village right outside the hotel. Our room was nice, but the view was pretty bad. The beach is the best thing about this hotel, it is a private beach with white sand, clear and shallow water, and if you rent (or bring) snorkeling gear you can swim to the beautiful house reef right next to the beach. If you swim in the other direction you might even see turtles (or book a snorkeling tour and have the guide bait the turtles with food)!

Disappointed- Birthday celebration + 2.5 years anniversary celebrations
Truly dissapointed. Everything generally was good with our stay. Just one things that not satisfied is we not able to try Taaras Romantic Spa for Couple Package due to fully booking. We had made special request during our reservations with hotel that we are celebrating our anniversary and birthday celebrations and we do send emails to hotel reservations a week before our stays but did not get any replied and since Taaras is 5 stars luxury hotel so we are expected there should be have some special decorations with hotel rooms and our reservations with spa had been made, but truly disappointed that there is no special arrangements and we not able to try the Couple Spa Package.

beautiful beach
Staffs are very friendly. The beach is quite beautiful with clear water and small fishes. The room is comfortable. In my opinion, it is the better that bathtub and toilet are separated.

Not the best
Hotel was average, but clean. Food was overpriced, accidentally got served undercooked fish at one point as well. The beach and sea was the highlight of the resort. Strange to see the duty manager/ GM always smoking at one table looking at guests.

Quiet and peaceful place!
Very good service! Special thanks to the manager for upgrading our room to Garden Suite. Nice room with spacious and luxurious bathroom and two separated rooms (living room and bedroom divided by door). Note that the garden "deluxe" and garden "suites" are very different in size and comfort (and price). (Also, Garden deluxe rooms do not have bathtubs, so if you prefer a bathtub, make sure to select rooms other than garden deluxe.) The resort itself is very quiet with no loud music compared to typical resorts in Thailand. The food at the restaurants is not bad, in terms of price and taste. We felt that the restaurants outside are cheap but not that tasty.
