Awesome hotel with private beach and excellent management
Great location, great views and great stay
Great hotel!! We love it. Everything was good.
The room was good but the electricity was bad cause keep on cut off the electric and the hotel explanation is due to the generator, and when I was half way shower on the check out date their house keeping just open the room door to check the mini bar! can't you just come to check after I check out?! bad experience
Nice hotel with own private beach and beautiful clear blue sea. Had an awesome stay in the hotel with superb hospitality provided. The hotel workers and staff are all very friendly with lots of personal touch that makes you feel so privileged and special. We even got our room upgraded and filled with lots of little surprises. Tried the spa and it was really wonderful. For those who would love to sight a live turtle, the hotel is located very near to the turtle hangout and you can definitely get a view of it with just 3 minutes boat ride away. Definitely a wonderful place if you are looking for a nice and relaxing stay away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Nice beach, clear water, very nice location. Nice hotel, but not a 5 star in our opinion.
Enjoy the stay so much, nice resort with a wonderful private beach, the water is crystal clear, the sand is sandy white, the staffs are friendly and helpful, the room is spacious and comfy, surely will visit again.
Beautiful resort and nice stay! The private beach is a wow. A place you shouldn't miss out. The live band is wonderful. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Just like it so much.
The room has a fantastic view of the ocean. When I call the hotel before the trip, the staff was very rigid and not helpful, nevertheless I was happy when onsite, all staffs were very helpful and friendly. Anita the duty manager was superb!
The beach is the nicest of all resorts in Pulau Redang, The hotel has put on effort to protect the beach clean thus preserve such clear and clean water , many marine fishes and Turtles can be seen here during our Recreational Activity !

My Go To Beach Resort
Hotel itself is average. Rooms are mid level 4*, but clean. Property is small. Staff is excellent. The beach is one of the best I have been to around the world, and I have been to a lot of beaches. The beach is the draw for this hotel. It is completely private, extremely white, soft sand with no rock, and the water is crystal clear. The beach and hotel are surrounded by cliffs on 3 sides, so there are not other properties sharing the area. Food in the hotel is not great, the breakfast buffet could be expanded for western tastes and the other restaurants are average. The reason I have come back to this property multiple times is the beach.

Nice place in need of improvements
It was a much-needed vacation and the place did not disappoint our choice. Summary notes can be found below: The Good: • Resort is located away from the rest of the mass accessible resorts and like that you can have peace of mind and indeed relax • Food is good. Lunch and Dinner are tasty and we’ve tried both restaurants. • The majority of the personnel working in the resort are there for a few years already so they know the area, and can give you good advice. They are also very polite and helpful. • There are lots of turtles, corals and colorful tropical fish in only a 5 minutes’ swim from the beach. • There are lots of monkeys, ashore, too. Areas for improvement: • It is a battle to get to the sun chairs at the beach. You have to wake up at 0600 in order to get down to the beach and put your towel on a chair. This is a resort and you are going there for holidays. If we have to wake up the same time as if we were going to work, then there is no point to pay again to only have a better view. This is a mistake from both the guests and the resort’s management. The guests leave their towels for the whole day (we had an instance where children put the towels for the whole day and never came to use the sun beds) and leave to do other activities creating a whole chaos with people that want to be there for the whole day, and do not have anywhere to put their towels. At the same time the resort’s management knows about this situation and even though there are signs saying that checks will be made every 2 hours • Guests must understand that we do not touch and hassle the marine life. Grabbing a floating turtle because you want to have a selfie is outrageous and very bad for the sea life. These are wild animals and must be treated as such, NOT your pets… • Guests must also understand that the beach is not an ashtray nor a garbage bin. There were many instances that bottles, and cigarette tips were left behind from the guests ending up in the sea front • Mosquitos – the area needs to be fumed more often. At sun down the mosquitos are attacking like crazy. It is impossible to stay at the beach bar area after sun down • Breakfast, is not bad, but not great either. Having to wait 20 minutes for the orange juice dispenser to be refilled is not ideal. Bigger juice glasses of at least 350ml would be a great purchase, too. • Cruise times – a good idea would be to change the cruise times so that the guests are on their own, swimming with the turtles, the reef sharks and seeing the corals. Being at the same time with 300 other tourists is not ideal, and since it is more expensive to book through the resort this a service that can definitely be improved. • There are only two boats to the mainland making it very hard to go and come to the island. The resort’s management should consider having two more boat trips for the resort’s guests, only. • Card details should not be requested (only when payment is due) and not be stored in the resort’s systems. • Snorkle accessories, must be checked and replaced more often. Some of the equipment were chewed from other guests – not nice… • Cleaning can be better in the rooms - bed linen had stains and floors, too

Excellent service with friendly staff
They picked us up from the ferry terminal and we were directed to the lobby. Refreshment was served and we just sit at the lobby while they came to collect the booking reference from us to do the check-in. They have free buggy ride to the room and back to any area you want to go within the resort. Buggy is just a call away. The staff was very friendly and nice. They will patiently assist you if you needed any help. Beach was nice, food is fine, staff very friendly and helpful. Had a wonderful and enjoyable trip.

Great potential
'Potential' is probably the best description available for The Taaras, because it could be world class, but it's not. What they have is an exquisite natural asset; the island. The beach could easily be rated top 10 in the world; the sea is crystal clear, warm and full of ocean life. Sea turtles, rays and a plethora of fish species are easily tracked down with a basic mask and snorkel. The other pro is the staff. Characteristic of the Malays, they are warm, welcoming, friendly and always smiling. What's holding this resort back from receiving my 5/5 rating on TripAdvisor is three things: 1: Accommodation - it's nice, but it's also tired - quite visible in the bathrooms (mouldy seals etc). 2: Food - the buffet offers a reasonable selection, the a la carte is very limited. In both cases, the quality of food is comparatively low, preparation is wildly inconsistent and frequently, items on the a la carte menu are not available. This needs addressing. 3: Service - the staff are wonderful but the courtesy and 'servicemanship' are absent and incomparable to the like of a Four Seasons for example. This is a lack of training and not a reflection on the people. Incidentally, I bumped into the Group Director who acknowledged the need for investment and improving consistency, which he confirmed were both on the roadmap after this season. In summary, probably right for the money and definitely one to watch out for next season (2018).

Lovely beach, service could be improved
Visited as part of our honeymoon, overall had a lovely stay but service is not 5 star. PROS: 1. Beautiful beach, not at all crowded, fenced off against the boats. 2. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated (one of cliff view rooms) 3. Hotel has a house reef where you can snorkel. If you hire a kayak and swim a couple of minutes to the other side, there are many sea turtles, no need to hire a guide. 4. We visited the spa a couple of times, the massage was lovely and the staff very friendly. CONS: 1. The rooms are a bit tired, we still greatly enjoyed ours but worth being aware of it TIPS: 1. be patient, we've had a number of service-related issues (like room service not available till 1 pm, restaurant taking 15 min to prepare the side dish while main is getting cold on the table etc.etc.) 2. booking hotel transfer is the easy option, especially if first time in Asia, but you can also ask the hotel to book you a public ferry (significantly cheaper and offers more time options), there is still a hotel rep at the Merang jetty who will help you to get to the right boat. Public ferry is not offered, you need to ask for it specifically. 3. there are two local street food cafes outside the hotel. We didn't eat there but this is an option if you don't fancy taking water taxi to a different beach and want something cheaper/ different. 4. We saw more turtles in the morning (9-10 am) than in the afternoon.
