Five star prices four star resort”

The taaras is a beautiful resort with a stunning beach and nice rooms. The prices for both the rooms and the extras whilst you're there are very high by malaysian standards and by redang standards and I'm not sure its worth it even at the RM761 i payed per night. The rooms were nicely decorated but missing the little devorative flourishes and extras I have got at four star resorts. The room service is really slow despite crazy prices. The GM is trying desperately to motivate the staff but unfortunately most come across as cold and lonely, a very different experience to the staff at my hotel last week in perhentian who were so lovely and attentive and made a point to build relationships. Breakfast service is chaotic qnd whilst the food is nice it is not a relaxing start to the day. The walls in the rooms are thin and i had screaming kids for all of my stay. The whole resort seemed packed of screaming kids infact. My friend got a suite for RM 1300 a night and it certainly wasnt worth it. The partial sea view was non existent, the balcony small and the space wasnt nicely decorated, the jacuzzi tub the only good feature. Monkeys are a big issue in the hillside rooms you cant really sit on the balcony and the lock on my door was faulty so twice i came home to monkeys in my room. The resort has its own turtle lab which is awesome and the team there were lovely. I was disappointed though that the hotel kept topping up with plastic bottles of water rather than glass and that when i came back to my room after the cleaners they left everything lights AC tv etc switched on whereas i had switched everything off to save energy. I actual spent my last night in redang in the mountains at a 2 star resort and had a really peaceful time, slept well, ate cheaply and met lovely staff there. Is the taaras a nice resort: yes, is it worth the price you pay: not in my opinion. Actually when checking out they tried to add on a rather large bar bill despite the fact i did not drink any alco

Amazing Beach, Beautiful resort, Friendly staff, Great place to relax

Berjaya Redang Resort is a very beautiful and well run resort which is a great place to just relax and forget about the stress of modern life. The beach is like something from a postcard with beautiful white sand, crystal clear sea that is as warm as bathwater and palm trees overlooking the beach. The resort itself is very modern, clean and well run with great facilities such as free wifi, swimming pool, 3 restaurants, library and even tennis and volleyball courts. The food was very good but was quite pricey. One thing I found strange was that the lunch buffet would cost 55 Malaysian Ringgits but the dinner buffet was 90 Malaysian Ringgits even though it consisted of almost the same food. This is much more expensive than you would spend on items from the a-la-carte menu so I would recommend giving the dinner buffet a miss. The breakfast buffet was included in our package and was in general very good with lots of choice. The room was large and comfortable with an amazing view but the bed was poor quality and hard. Also, there were no blackout curtains so at 7am the room was full of sunlight which isn't ideal. Apart from this, I'd highly recommend both the resort and Redang Island in general as we loved our stay there. The place is pure paradise and my wife and I are already thinking about our return there next year!

Best Resort in Malaysia ”

We had amazing time here. Everything is perfect here except the food from Brasserie Beach. Damn the food tastes horrible. Asean All Dining & Bayu Bar was fine. For those looking for private beach & amazing view I really recommend the The Taaras. If you're on tight budget, you can arrange your own transportation. From Merang Jetty you can take boat to Village Jetty, Redang Island. There will be The Taaras van to pick you up. Adviseable to contact The Taaras 1 day earlier on your arrival. Boat transfer you can book from BusOnlineTicket. Basically lunch 2pax around RM300. For Dinner buffet at Asean All Dining RM130/pax. You don't have to bring a lot of cash here because everything you will pay during your check out day. Payment can be made debit/credit card or cash.

Great beach, nice service but can be better”

Free wi-fi, clean beach, privacy

was really looking forward to a nice weekend getaway with my girlfriend and after going through the positive reviews about berjaya redang resort, we decided to go ahead with the stay. since it would be our first time to redang, we really appreciated the promptness of the berjaya staff who replied to our countless enquiries regarding the airport, resort activities and room information. check-in was prompt and we were warmly greeted by the resort staff who presented us with a cool face towel and cold drink to cool off the heat. the staff members throughout our stay were incredible - they were sincere and provided such warm service which made us felt truly privileged like a vip of sort. to top it off, we were given a free upgrade to a garden view room and imagine how delighted we were when they announced it to us! room: the garden suite room was spacious, with an extended living room. we were so tempted to just lay on the bed and enjoy the coolness of the room and watch some shows on tv. however, after browsing through, the channels were really limited and it was good for us cos that forced us to get out of our room to enjoy the great outdoors and nature of redang island. we found some sand on our bed but still tolerable to us (: beach: we were blessed with good weather in the 2 days we stayed. thankfully, the beach was clean and there wasn't any shortage of beach towels available for loan. it could be due to the off-peak period as the max number of people on the beach was around 30 or so. food: we had a good time at the beach brasserie & beach bar (try their pizzas, seriously.). though it's slightly pricey, i wouldn't say the prices were sky-rocket and still affordable to most stayers. however, we were really disappointed with the food in the asian restaurant when we had a morning breakfast buffet and dinner buffet on the 2nd night. honestly if you had a choice, i'd say give asian restaurant a miss or probably give the ala-carte a try.

A complete beach resort!”

Had a great time staying at the Taaras. A resort with almost all sorts of amenities one can have while staying in a beach resort. I said 'almost' because few water sports need to be added at the recreational desk. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Rooms and suits are clean enough. Restaurant staffs are prompt and foods are delicious. The best thing, in my honest opinion, is the beach at Taaras is the best in Redang island with white powdery sand and crystal clear water. Highly recommended for family travelers!

Amazing Honeymoon”

My husband and I stayed at the Taaras for three nights during our honeymoon. I actually visited this resort 15 years ago when I was a small child; the beach is exactly how I remembered it - absolutely breathtaking! AIRPORT TRANSFERS: We booked the private transportation option to and from the airport for 340RM/per person. It was a seamless experience; from the moment we landed at TGG airport. We arrived early so we waited in the private Taaras lounge for about an hour before heading to the jetty for our speedboat ride to the hotel. From the dock, it was about a 5 minute van ride to the Taaras. Our bags were taken care of by the staff from the beginning until the moment we arrived. ROOM: We were offered cold drinks and crisp towels in the lobby while the concierge handled our checkin. We booked a Hill Deluxe; one of the more basic rooms, but we didn't mind at all since we spent most of our time outside the room and on the beach anyway! The room itself was extremely clean and the furniture/decor was sleek and modern; we had our own private balcony which was a really nice touch. The only issue we had was that there wasn't an iron or an ironing board readily available, but we requested one from housekeeping and they brought them to us within minutes. FOOD & BEVERAGE: The food was average - it wasn't anything to write home about, but still edible nonetheless. The drinks were quite nice; they have happy hour between 5pm-7pm every day, and the bartenders at the beach bar were stellar! The prices weren't outrageous either, but coming from the states and being used to higher prices at a resort of this caliber, $7.00 - $8.00 (which included gratuity AND tax) for a cocktail was not bad at all. We also visited the breakfast buffet every morning which was included in the room rate. Again, it wasn't amazing but I really appreciated how they had different cuisines in the spread ranging from Chinese, Indian, to Western. The best part was the freshly squeed juic

Amazing Taaras”

Private beach. Quiet Location. Freidnly Staff

From the moment we were met on Redang (using hotel boat & transfer) the experience was pleasant. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were sat down, provided a refreshing drink & had a dedicated staff member check us in. We were the 2nd group of the day which I’d recommend as the 1st looked busy. Once checked in, we were taken by golf cart around the hotel grounds where restaurants, beach towel hire (free), pool, & the activities area was pointed out to us, before being taken to our room. With regards to our room, Taaras were AMAZING & kindly gave us a free room upgrade. There was a misunderstanding & they thought it was our honeymoon & had laid petals out on the bed & got us a cake with "Happy Anniversary" on it. We didn't have the heart to tell them it wasn't our anniversary, but that sort of extra touch went a very long way with us. The room was excellent, with separate shower & bath, though having an open wardrobe in the room next to the shower/toilet wasn't ideal. The bedroom area was large, & the bed comfy. All but 1 TV channel worked but you have to remember where you are (an island), & the fridge could have been bigger. The hotel complex was great & we thoroughly enjoyed it. The activities available are plenty given you are away from everything. We hired a stand-up board & went around to the other beach where turtles are feeding. Be sure to take a snorkel & mask with you, amazing experience!! I was also able to complete 5 dives & could snorkel out to the "Home Reef" where I saw plenty of fish as well as a ray. The staff play beach volleyball every evening before sunset & all guests are welcome to join. Things to note: This is a very much a couples retreat. You cannot buy alcohol outside of the hotel. The service although extremely friendly can be slow at times, we went after a peak season & still had to wait a long time for drinks (not always). Finally don't let the restaurant directly outside the hotel try & rip you off, check the bill against the menu!

The best island in west Malaysia.”

Taraas is located at Redang island at a sea bay inside the marine park. Only one resort at the sea bay. The rest of the Redang resorts are at the other side of the island. Taraas has very clean and beautiful beach. Since it is located at marine park, the sea is crystal clear that you can see Nemo fish in surrounding area. The food is fantastic. There have choice of ala cart, buffet, fine dining. It is one of the best island for relax and most beautiful beach in West Malaysia.

Fantastic Resort, Outstanding Service Performance!”

Service Performance, Extremely Caring and Helpful Staff, Best Environment.

Have been travelling a fair bit over 25 yrs. Staying in a similar category Resort and Spa is not new to me. Beautiful Beach, Clean Pool, Excellent room, reasonable price of all F&B, and lovely staff all around to greet you throughout the day and nite with a smile. I have to say, my group and myself would give this Resort a THUMB UP! From the picking point at the Ferry terminal, we were already impressed with the service they have provided. Friendly and Caring staff all over, making us feel more than just a hotel Guest, its like good buddy of theirs. Putting guests comfort, safety and enjoyable as their priorities, i wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to the entire TEAM of The Taaras Resort and Spa for their excellent service performance. We enjoy our stay there and i am glad that i have chosen this Resort. Special thanks to Mr Eddy, BRAVO to your personal service given to our group, to En. Wan Azmi, who has shown your care and providing our needs. Not forgotten Mr Asmawi, who was on night shift on 27th March, for his help on our Web check-in service late at night. In Short, The Taaras Resort and Spa really rocks! Thumbs up and Bravo. We love this resort.

The Best Resort!”

5 Star Resort with 5 Star Service! I booked Cliff Hill Deluxe, but they upgraded me to Garden Suite. Thank you so much. Breakfast also not bad. Not so much choice, but still okay. This is an island, the foods are limited. I can understand. The room is so big. Enough to accommodate me, husband and my 3 small kids. They really enjoyed the bath tub too. Our room is just a walking distance to the beach and kids playroom. Only the downside is, we not really enjoyed the beach, as the monsoon season seems not over yet. We arranged snorkeling trip to other island, since there is no fish at the Taaras Beach. The best time to visit Taaras is on May until September as the weather is much better than any other months. Will we visit again Taraas? The answer is, DEFINITELY!

Beautiful spot, expensive resort”

Perfect beach, good service

We got the boat over from Merang jetty to the Taaras, organised through the hotel. Once arriving on Redang we got the Taaras bus transport to the hotel. We were greeted with lovely drinks and service with a smile. The Hill deluxe room was lovely and spacious with a nice balcony. The window where the bathroom is was quite strange, good there was a blind to pull down! We loved the beach, the sand was awesome and the water was really clear. We hired kayaks and snorkel gear and did some snorkelling, we were amazed by how many fish we saw. It was truly incredible. Take plenty of cash with you! Our bill was 2000rm for drinks and food and transport for 4 days. The bar by the beach was great and there was one staff member who was extra good. Breakfast was really nice.

Perfect for Romance!”

Staff attentiveness, resort's generosity for the many birthday suprises & perfect, beautiful, breathtaking view, calm crystal clear water

It's my 1st stay at Taaras - an amazingly superb, perfect and unforgettable experience ever! I planned the getaway as a surprise and birthday gift for my boyfriend. Thus, I was thinking why not splurge a little bit since we don't have the time to plan for an overseas trip for his birthday. I booked a Garden Suite - it's among the rooms that they still have left (my stay was a public holiday and start of school holiday, so rooms were running out!). The most amazing surprise - upon check-in, we were informed that they have to change our room, I asked is it full because of the Public holiday? And they say no..we're upgrading your room - to the best suite they have in the resort! We understand there's a special occasion being celebrated :) Imagine my thril!! Taaras gave us the Cliff View Premiere Suite - just next to the huge villa on the cliff. The suite - Awesome: I felt like being on a honeymoon with a large seperate living room, balcony, huge bedroom with jacuzzi by the full glass window & huge bathroom with complete amenities. They knew about his birthday cuz they help me to plan for a suprise birthday cake during dinner - Taaras offers interesting Special/Experience Dinners too. The staffs sang for him :) Earlier in the morning of his birthday, we were given another surprise - a complimentary birthday cake! The day before after checking in, they put up petals of ""Happy Birthday" caption on the bed - I felt like the surprises and generosity of the resort is just endless :) The resort itself is really nice with all the bars and in-house restaurants facing the beach - it's romanctic everywhere. The water is crystal clear blue, green - very beautiful. We snorkelled just around the resort, it was enough for me cuz there are lots of fishes to be seen and you can even swim/pedal your way to the platoon! If you miss local food, there are a few choices outside the resort within walking distance. It's been an extremely romantic experience - definitely will come again!

Cliff Bay View Suite
Stayed 5 nights in October 2020


We loved the Taaras! We booked as a treat for my recent birthday and what a great stay we had! So much so, that we now plan to return over the coming Christmas break. We arrived early at the jetty and after making a call to the Taaras, the van swiftly showed up for our transfer to the resort. Right from our arrival, the staff shone. We felt very welcome by the friendly reception staff at check-in. As we were early, I expected to wait for the room but we were assigned a room right away and the buggy took us to room 263. We booked the Bay View Suite via Agoda for 5 nights, and assume our room was upgraded because the resort map shows room 263 as a Cliff Sea View Suite. I highly recommend this room!! It was absolutely fantastic...very spacious with a gorgeous view over the beach and ocean. We found it very clean and welcoming on arrival with a fruit plate awaiting on our table. During our stay, the housekeeping really did a lovely job. The room was always beautifully remade and tidied generally first thing in the morning whilst we were at breakfast. The private beach was super nice, with the white sand and clear water that it is known for. My son and I particularly enjoyed the swings over the water and the floating carpets. A highlight was hiring the 2 person see through canoe and paddling the short distance over to the adjacent bay to snorkel and see the turtles. We also spent our time swimming, playing beach tennis, on the brand new pool tables, pingpong tables or just lazing around on the beach....these are all free activities. The resort also has ATV's for hire but we didn't use these. One negative point that I would mention is that we didn't swim in the pool as we did not find it that attractive, as it was not crystal clear. Maybe this is due to the filtration system or chemical imbalance as during our stay, we only saw 2 people in it on the one occas

a relaxing resort hotel ”

Good service, nice hotel room, wonderful beach

we took a break in late summer this year. We've heard of Redang Island for years. Making use of my short break before moving to a new job, we decided to go there this year. Wow what a lovely beach it is. We enjoyed the sunshine there, and we learnt snorkelling there (though many ppl told me no learning was required!) There were lots of coral fishes under water! We love them a lot! Also the hotel service was pretty good! You don't need to worry much about the boat transfer / car pick up. Also they were willing to offer their assistance all the time! I have no doubt that I will visit this island and hotel again!

"House reef" plus a sea turtle!”

1) House reef!!! 2) Welcome drinks!! 3) Efficient transport services!

We stayed at the cheapest hill deluxe room which we had no expectation, end up it was newly renovated and have a sea view! Taaras hasn't advertised the "house reef" enough so we didn't expect anything, thought the hotel was overpriced, then we were very shocked to see a lot of colourful fish when we swam further out. Again we thought we can only see marine life at the Redang marine park, end up we saw a sea turtle when we kayaked by the resort... It actually popped up to the water surface not far from our kayak! We are expats in KL just tried to have a getaway every weekend no matter what, so we booked the trip even the weather forecast said it will be thunderstorm. Thanks to that, we only see less than 20 guests at Taaras the whole weekend, we basically own the reef when we snorkelled at 8am. The so called thunderstorm only lasted for 2 hours while we were having 2nd breakfast. So our stay was unexpectedly great, sorry guys now you have read this and expect to see sea turtles and so on, remember expectations kill, Taaras didn't hire the turtle so it may not show up to you, just enjoy your stay and let the nature surprise you.

Amazing location with crystal clear water. Wonderful service! The staff are very helpful!”

l would strongly book the Taaras hotel with tranfers as well. They are very organised and their lounge is wonderful. The staff are well trained and are always friendly and willing to assist at all times. The beach is just Amazing with a capital A. The breakfast is nice and there are options for lunch and dinner. If you book a half or full board, just keep in mind that it excludes all types of drinks. Breakfast does have some juice to choose from though. Overall, Redang lsland is amazing with the Taaras providing great accommodation.

Crystal clear waters The Taaras beach resort ”

It was Amazing holidays with my family at Taaras beach resort redang. All the staff was helpful and friendly especially the reservation manager Cik Izatul. One again thank you for your information and advice. Everything is perfect except the swimming pool is dirty. My advice is don't go to the nearby Malay sea food restaurant buy mineral water is too expensive . We asked the resort driver send us to the grocery shop is more cheaper and honest.

A Fantastic Resort”

Location, staff,

We have stayed at several places on Redang and always enjoy being on the island, but this was the best place by far. The setting is perfect. The beach is idyllic - powder white sand in a sheltered bay. Great swimming and good snorkelling nearby. And its peaceful - especially compared with other beache areas on the island. The resort itself is well laid out and spacious. Rooms are a good size (we stayed in hilltop deluxe) and very comfortable.Staff were very friendly and helpful and we quickly felt "at home". We'll certainly return.

Long sea trip but worth it!”

We spent 5 days at the Taaras and had a fabulous time. One main reason why we chose Redang island was for the snorkelling and we were not disappointed. There is a reef for snorkelling right of the Taaras Resorts own beach. The beach itself is beautiful, fine white sand. There were enough activities to satisfy us for the days we were there. The hotel shop sells snorkelling masks but it could have a wider variety of them. Housekeeping was good and all staff were very friendly and helpful without exception. One of the restaurant staff really stood out, namely Yudha Wiradinata. He was extremely friendly but at the same time very professional and went our of his way to serve our little group and to make each of us feel special. We are planning to revisit The Taaras at some later date. Selma Oksanen
