Friendly staff, good service. Amazing hotel. ”

Landed at kt Airport. Welcomed by a staff that allowed us to use the lounge. Took a ferry from syahbandar jetty to village jetty. Welcomed by staff at jetty and they took care of everything. Given welcome drink and upgraded room. The manager welcomed us as well and we felt very happy. Given cookies on our second day at our room. The best part is the beach. Crystal clear water and we just spend most of time in the resort. Rented a kayak at the hotel and kayaked to the turtle viewing area. Simply amazing.

Exceptional”

Most beautiful and clean beach with clear blue waters. It was very much pay for most items at premium prices and especially for food and drinks, but the staff were always friendly and helpful. Better to sit inside the restaurant to eat, and especially at breakfast, as there are many flies around, besides the comfort of air conditioning. However, it seemed many guests would also be able to find many restaurants outside the resort to eat, but as in most local Muslim run restaurants, no alcohol is allowed and no air conditioning. Swimming with nearby turtles at the beach was an amazing experience. All in all, a very relaxing and beautifully clean and well maintained resort with friendly staff to make it a memorable stay.

Nice Hotel with Stunning Private Beach”

Nice hotel with lovely typical Malay Villa which surrounded with tropical trees. Nice landscaping and well maintained. They have private beach which to die for... white sand with blue sea. All the staff was excellent with great hospitality. Big hands to the management to hired quality staff. Breakfast buffets was good but i will rates them as 4* instead of 5*. The cocktails at the beach bar not so good and expensive for the quality that you’re getting. The food at the beach bar really expensive and not really good ..... We had BBQ buffet dinner @ RM170/pax after being convinced by one of the staff Mr Amin from Bangladesh and he is really friendly and good and we agreed to his suggestions, unfortunately the food was very basic and not really good quality which I expected for that price. All the food was cold and not a BBQ concept which normally others would practice. Big disappointment. It’s more like buffet line.......

5 stars for location and beach but rooms need to improve”

The beach and location of resort was awesome! But breakfast was lacklustre and boring for a 5 star hotel. We upgraded our room to a suite cause the first one had mouldy toilets. First impression was great! Bathroom super spacious and newer. But The suite had 3 cockroaches!! Didn’t expect this. Will be spending less next time on other resorts in Redang.

Great stay, beautiful beach”

Had a great stay here - 3 days 2 nights. The chalet, facilities and service were great. Pleasant staff, attended to our requests and helped out as well. Felt taken care of. Have to mention, the beach bar was packed one Saturday noon that a couple of orders never came and we received incorrect orders (noticed that there staff there were not too well versed in English) . Apart from that, It was the bomb!

Overall stay was fantastice. Just loves the secluded beach, own beach for Taaras. Blue sea, white sand and just so beautiful . Just a little comment, food spread for buffer and fine dinning should be improve. A little of high price for the food that been served in the current menu. The turtle lab was an eye opener for me. Overall, i have a fantastic and relax stay. Will definitely recommend.

Absolutely fantastic! ”

Malaysia in my opinion is a beautiful country but lacks Maintenance culture. But kudos to Bejaya Group, I have stayed at the Chsteau which is the best so far. Tara’s Hotel is one hotel I would definitely stay again, hopefully it’s well maintained and remains the same. Pristine beach, the view from my room Cliff sea view was heaven! . Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. My only complaint is the Fine dinning Brassiere, the food was ok, it would be great to teach the waiters and waitresses about the food they are serving they didn’t have a clue how the food is cooked etc.

Beautiful Location: ”

Friendly welcoming staff who were certainly run off their feet during a busy time. We stayed & paid $$ for hill top suite which was lovely but the food & drink selection failed on making this a luxury stay.. We were also left feeling sad about the lack of care for this beautiful environment: although Berjaya have ceased using plastic straws the amount of plastic being used on this Island resort was horrifying.. and not too mention seeing staff throwing cigarette butts in the water... Please Management step up your game to protect this natural wonderland Malaysia is so blessed to have.

Our second time visiting The Taaras”

This was our second time staying at The Taaras. Lots of things has changed especially food pricing. It has doubled compared to 3 years ago. Considering the quality of food they served, it is quite pricy and not worth at all. Service at the beach bar was horrid, you have to wait for your food for at least 40 min or more. The staff cannot remember our orders during our 2 times dining there during this trip. I saw a plate of salad with lots of flies landed on it at the counter for more than 15 min before it was served. Besides, patrons were smoking everywhere but none of the staff care to direct them to designated smoking area. But on the bright side, lots of beach chairs are added to cater for a bigger crowd during high season. Also, their housekeeping team is awesome, very friendly and helpful! Gotta give a big clap to the resort's effort in conserving sea turtle with their newly setup turtle lab, thank you!

pricy restourant”

It has been almost 20 years since my last trip to Redang. overall, Tarras is towards the pricy side. food is more like a 4 star kind which not hav too much choices and the price is considered very high side too. RM80 per pax for lunch, but nothing much to choose from. Same goes with the dinner, nothing much to chooce but asking for RM 130 per pax. If you do not want to eat in the hotel, you may go ourside of the Resort for Warung shop which runs by some ladies. This ladies, is even worst. Our experiance with them was really bad.. after order the food, we have to sit for 1 and half hours, and the food stillnot yet served. When we asked these ladies, we were told that, if dont like, can chooce not to eat there. Wah.. guess they know that people that come to them have no other choice cos the Resort food are much higher price than them. So, i guess , they been pampered a lot. Overall, i will rather go for Clubmed kind of vacation, then this Redang island.

Honeymoon ”

My wife and I stayed for 5 days to celebrate our honeymoon. We loved the beautiful beach scenery and the phenomenal staff. I have stayed at many resorts and this staff is by far the best. Arifin, Max, Amin, Zabidi, Jay, Zaidi, and Dino were willing to go the extra mile to make our experience great. They were PHENOMENAL!!! The major problem we had during our stay was NOT having hot water to take a shower. I did call the front desk and ask them to fix the problem. They told me I had to press the button to make sure the hot water was turned on. I followed directions and still no hot water. They did send maintenance out to fix the problem but there was still NO hot water. Since they were not able to solve this problem I asked for a room change. I was denied a room change because the entire resort was sold out. Not having hot water to take shower is a serious problem. Especially during your honeymoon. The manager did tell me I will be “taken care of” NEXT TIME I visit their resort. I’m not sure what that specifically includes but guest should be compensated more than that.

Absolutely delightful. The beach has the finest white sand, warm clean ocean, inspiring nature around. The hotel provides the comfiest beach chairs to enjoy that! You can snorkel around to the nearby beach for free amazing turtle viewing. Excellent service, huge room with all amenities, delicious breakfast... food is a bit on the expensive side, but hey, there's a local restaurant right outside the hotel should you wish to go cheap.
