    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.

    Beautiful Resort Retreat”
    3rd visit to the Taaras Resort and I wasn't at all disappointed. I love to snorkel and could simply swim out in crystal clear turquoise water to the reef - right there on the 'beach-step'. The reefs are not in great health but there are sections showing healthy re-growth and certainly the diversity of fish showed that parts of the reef can sustain fish and other sea life. We took a 2-stop trip for snorkelling and saw even more sea creatures of beauty and abundance. The staff in the resort are very friendly, charming and helpful - it felt like meeting old friends. From the workers who serviced our rooms, to the bar and restaurant staff , the reception staff to the gardeners and life-guards, we were treated like honoured guests but not fussed over too much. A perfect balance. Sitting under a cabana on a wide and comfortable wooden sun lounger gazing out to sea and natural tropical forest was the most perfect way to spend the morning, the day, the evening - great stars.

    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. If I get picky... I can't, everything was perfect!!

No complaint about the room if comparing the other hotel room in Malaysia. Kids love the bath tub, kids’ pool and jojo playroom! I love the beach, and the ‘horizon lounge’ to have the whole view of the beach, and great place to practice yoga! Food at the beach brasserie is fantastic! Really tasty! Overall, pricey! But staff are pleasant, cheerful and smiley!

    Nice resort, Little bit old ”
    The beach is really beautiful, the resort is very big und the turtle lab is insanely cool. A Lot of the Staff was very very Nice and helpful. Some of the others treated us like lower class guests. During our stay we noticed some other guests kept getting priviliges all the Time. Upon further investigating the reason for this we saw a few of them having really big instagram Followings. Small things like them having a personal Butler, always getting the best table etc. On the last evening this resulted in us having a table right in Front of the speaker and their „Butler“ (who by the way was a staff member of the resort) rallying their four kids around our table to play there, to just Not annoy their parents. So we had to eat there while four 6year olds kept screaming and running around our table. We didnt get cushions for our seats, while the „preffered customers“ got them right away. You see, it were a lot of small, little and unnecessary things but they got increasingly annoying over time. We stayed in one of the hill deluxe suits, which were quite nice but not really luxurious as they were a bit old. Overall, if you are a special little snowflake whos only job is to market your kids and social media, if you treat normal guests like shit because they actually pay for their stay, then this is the place for you! Oh by the way, if you are an extraordinary special snowflake you can have the buffet from the main dining room at the beach bar. Of course every staff member will be busy carrying your food out to you but dont worry about other guests sitting in front of their empty tables and glasses for 20minutes, this is your well deserved holiday and you deserve every unpaid, sponsored minute of this!

    The Taaras is a great hotel to relax with a stunning beach. Rooms are big and clean with a good bed and shower. Staff is very friendly and they have buggy service for the hill and cliff side rooms. But the hotel overall is quite expensive when you consider that lunch and dinner have Western prices. Also some of the facilities are quite old and could use an update. We had a great time despite it shortcomings.

    Stayed at premier cliff View suite, view is absolutely amazing and room is well furnished with good facilities. Beach front is the best we've been so far, absolutely white sandy beach and crystal clear water. Perfect paradise for couple and very private. Another plus point is that the turtle view point is just around the corner and you can choose to swim or kayak over to the adjacent beach. However food there can be improved a lot more than how it is now. We dined mostly at their asean all day dining that serves mostly buffet style lunch or dinner. There is quite a large flies population spotted at the salad/fruits/desserts section.

    This was our first trip to Redang and had heard very mixed reviews of Taara's Resort. But we had nothing but a positive, relaxing experience here. We had prebooked the private boat and as it rained on our way over, we checked in well before check in time. Enabling us to relax on our holiday immediately. They also were great in organize a late check out. The service is a little slow in the restaurant, but you have to understand it is Ramadan. The bar staff were great fun. The menu is quite limited and expensive. There is a local restaurant outside the hotel, that is cheap and cheerful. They also sell water and some basic supplies at a much cheaper rate than the resort! We just loved the clean beach and pool. Endless hours of fun for the family. We hired the kayak's and catamaran. We booked the turtle trip to the next bay to the resort twice and were never disappointed with how many turtles we saw. For a getaway for a few days/nights this is your place to go

    The resort is nice and the beach and bay is beautiful. We upgraded to an ocean view suite and it was 100% worth it as the rooms and view and location of rooms are far better. The food in resort was nice but a little limited, we ventured down the road and tried a few local places that are far cheaper. We also booked a boat transfer from outside the resort for half the price for our return trip. It was a great place to relax and unwind and was perfect for r&r time.

We had a beach wedding dinner and even though it was past the time for the staff to close & clean up , they did not chase us off and instead waited patiently till all the guests left before cleaning up. Only set back was the complimentary mineral bottle drink, we had a tough time opening it.
