“An unforgettable week”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

The renovated rooms are great, the pools are huge, the food is fantastic, the service is excellent and I'm running out of superlatives to describe the awesome week we spent at the Tanjung Rhu.
The design of this hotel is fresh and modern and fits in the local surroundings like a glove - the pools are as I mentioned huge, all with exceptional views, and the beach is gigantic, private and offers a brilliant scenery.
The service is great, everyone is friendly and helpful, and the food is exceptional - all well as the activities (mangroves boat tour, massages at the spa).
We spent an unforgettable week and I would seriously recommend this resort to anyone going to Langkawi!

Room Tip: Until they have all been done, ask for a renovated room.

We stayed 4 nights here and it was magic! The private beach was beautiful and breathtaking. The sea was warm and the sunses amazing! Although there is a lot of renovation going on it ddnt affect our stay and the staff really were so friendly and helpful. There were trips on offer free every day so we took a boat up the mangroves and kayaked with a guide. We tried out archery and kayaking across the bay and walked out along the sand spit for a mile into the sea. The food was excellent in both restaurants and happy hour set us up for the sunsets every day so we never saw anything of the island beyond the resort which is so unusual for me. That's how good it was here! And the weather was excellent too despite the rainy season.

Room Tip: If you can see the sea and catch the sunset....

I went to the Tanjung Rhu Resort 12 years ago for my honeymoon and had a wonderful experience. Recently I went back with 4 girlfriends from Australia. My experience was the same but I must admit the hotel had dated and the renovations works we were warned about weren't in action. The food was still wonderful and the chef made extra special effort for my friend with food allergies. The service was great and the very friendly nature from the staff was comforting although some of my friends found it a bit too much especially when they started telling their own personal stories. We did find out that the staff had been gossiping about us and had given us a nickname as well!
All in all I recommend this resort especially for couples but as a group we still had a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: If not beach views go for the garden view and not on the bottom floor.

Indeed. If there was one choice in all of Langkowi it has to be the Tanjung Rhu. Their secret is simple: you are treated as an individual- not just another one of the crowed and unlike The Four Seasons nearby, "you get your money's worth and more"-- which should really be the resorts theme line. Fabulous beaches, great cuisine, lovely accommodation, and best of all the nicest people ever.
This is THE resort famous for return customers like me. If that's not the best accolade of all, I don't know what could be.

I stayed in this miserable hotel in room 1212 for 3 days, everything was good except that THE HOTEL LITERALLY STOLE MONEY FROM MY WALLET WHICH WAS IN THE SAFE BOX IN MY ROOM. I found out that I lost money when I left the city so I called the hotel and they did nothing for me, they said they will take it seriously but it's been 3 months now and I got nothing.So if you are thinking of visiting this hotel try doing it without money in your wallet because they will steal it from you. Plus they do not have security cameras in the resort .

This is a late review but as we had such an amazing trip we though better late than never..!

We went from mid May 2013 for a week.

Despite renovations Enzo gave us assurances personally that we would have a memorable stay and they did not fail to deliver.

The location of the hotel on a stunning beach and spectacular view are enough to make any trip memorable. Despite being slightly far (20 minute taxi journey to city centre) the seclusion is worth it especially for a couple on honeymoon.

Besides scaffolding and the occasional construction noise we were unaware of any work being carried out. The staff were friendly, polite, helpful and took the effort to remember us. The concierge was fantastic in helping us plan and book our days even for activities outside the hotel.

The room (we stayed in the Cahaya) although slightly dated (assume this will be rectified post renovation) was very spacious, well furnished and comfortable. This was further complimented by the luxurious bathroom. The room had all the basic amenities (such as iron, mini bar, safe etc.) and access to balcony was a bonus.

We treated ourselves to the in house spa and would highly recommend splashing out on a treatment.

The food menu was slightly limited everything was tasty, well cooked and well presented. Although the price was more than average the taxi ride to town did not justify the savings.

There are three amazing pools; one for adults only, one for children (man made beach in the middle of the resort!) and a general pool.

We would highly recommend the resort and if you do go take full advantage of the amazing beach and facilities (and don't forget to feed the fish and resident lizard!).

Thank you Enzo and team for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: If the view is important then upgrade your room to sea view.

a good choice for an all inclusive (in terms of f&b) vacation at a beach resort

good stuff:
- great food and drinks!
- all inclusive package means you can order anything on the menu (except alcoholic beverages)
- menu options are varied and extensive
- beautiful beach setting with a view of islets and islands
- non-motorised boats available for a reasonable rate
- kid's club and other scheduled activities are available
- good service generally

Not-so-good:
- on-going renovation means a longer walk to the dining section
- some rooms have been upgraded. those that are not are outdated in terms of design and finishes
- rooms on the top floor of the block means a walk up 4 stories of stairs (there are no elevators) to get back to your room.

Overall, a great setting with the excellent food makes for an enjoyable holiday. We were fortunate to land a room on the 1st floor instead of the 4th!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the lower floor!
