How's Tanjung Rhu Resort nowadays?

I love Four Seasons but they're out of my budget this time. Thinking of Tanjung Rhu but I'm wondering if the place is a little tired?

If someone knows of somewhere else better, please let me know! Ideally, it'll be a little one-bedroom villa with a private plunge pool but hey, beggers can't be choosers. My budget's around RM1000 per night so I doubt I'll get what I want;) Alternatively, it'll be Bon Ton/ Temple Tree but husband's not a big fan.

Hi

The Tanjung Rhu has recently undergone a complete refurbish so should be looking very good now if the works have been finished.

Hi again..!

Alternatively have you tried looking at Seri Chenang Resort & Spa which is a new place, boutique size and has butler service. It gets excellent reviews.

Thank you, both.

Seri Chenang is lovely but expensive (might as well stay at Four Seasons then).

I think we'll go for Temple Tree after all. My husband's not a huge fan but we both really like the idea of having cats around and would like to walk a dog or two. Plus we got engaged in Bon Ton years ago....

It is so boring going to Langkawi yet again but that island has really captured our hearts.

Leslie,

Do you think the Tanjung Rhu renovations will be complete by Christmas? Website is showing very little sign of changes.... Also is there a new GM installed or are they going it alone?

Think this will be out final visit to the hotel. Prices have risen astronomically over the last 13 years and so many key staff have left, sadly.

Many thanks and kind regards to all x

Hi

I am on the island at the moment so will try to find out what is going on at Tanjung Rhu.

Yes, all prices have certainly risen on the island over the last 12 years - as would be expected, I'm afraid. I remember the good old days when you got 9RM to 1GBP but I am afraid those days are long gone - more to do with the GBP than the RM though!

Dear Tripadvisors & Lesley,

Was wondering if anyone has checked out the Tanjung Rhu renovations? Are they almost finished and is there a new GM?

Interestingly the website doesn't show any of the renovations and bizarrely Tripadvisor's last review is a 3 star one posted at the end if September referring to a member of staff who left quite some time ago....

Many thanks as ever.

I am also interested in Tanjung Rhu looks beautiful but is it in walking distance to local Malay restaurants? Also did you think it might be suitable for 10 yr old kids? Cheers

Hi

The Tanjung Rhu is lovely but there is really nothing in walking distance from it. You would need transport to get around.

It is suitable for children but really there is not a lot for them to do other than the beach and the pool.
