Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 2011

Stayed at this place due to my hubby as he had previously visited langkawi, I did not know what to expect but since the time we arrived at the langkawi airport; from the time airport pick up to the drop off the say has been fantastic. The staff to the food, service everything were exemplary.

Room Tip: must for family

This resort is, together with the marina, the only occupant on the small island. A shuttle boat to Langkawi departs several times a day.

We spent a week in this place last year, and stayed in a Deluxe Sea View Room, which was kept neat and clean as one would expect.

Staff is friendly and helpful in a natural way, rather than the often seen "customer service trained standard friendliness". The food is good but not memorable and expect to pay near European prices for your meals.

The pool is the center of the experience, as the beach is not attractive for swimming. Another attraction were teh monkeys running around freely in the garden (don't feed them!)

The hotel attracts a mixed crowd of Europeans and people from the Middle East, and do not be surprised to see women wearing their traditional niqab or women entering the pool fully dressed.

We did not find Langkawi a particularly interesting island to visit due to lack of sights and shopping. A snorkeling tour off the island of Langkawi was a near disaster, as the place was crowded with Chinese tourists (most of which could not swim), on an extremely small sandy beach (we got lucky and managed to get one of the few available sun chairs) and a very small (fenced off) area with very few fishes to see when snorkeling. Add to that a very long boat trip on board a large and very noisy vessel. All there was to do was shrug and laugh at our misfortune.

Stayed for 3 nights. Off peak season so it was nice and quiet. The grounds were absolutely beautiful - carefully taken care of but not overly manicured. Unpretentious but lovely. Beautiful view, nice beach, clean water.

Rooms were exceedingly clean and housekeeping was excellent. Furniture was a bit scruffy but we were in a 2br family suite so perhaps it's from exposure to children. Whatever the reason, the rooms weren't quite as nice as I expected. Extremely comfortable though and very spacious-2 large bedrooms, plenty of living area, big bathroom AND a large balcony with 2 lounge chairs. Fresh flowers were a nice touch.

Food option were limited - only one restaurant on location. Quality was fine but nothing special. Better food to be had on Langkawi itself.

Shuttle boats are quick and on time but timing could have been more convenient. The waiting area (a small reception lobby type building) at port langkasuka was an unexpected comfort and had complimentary wi-fi.

What REALLY made the trip were the staff. Pleasant and gracious and always helpful. The kitchen even dug out some leftover rolls from breakfast at our request for one of our travel party who had an upset stomach and wast up for anything else for dinner. They were requested after we finished our meal and arrived at the room before we did, perfectly warmed and nicely presented.

There was a minor mishap involving a tray of iced water and someone's lap...the poor server felt so bad. But that was the worst that happened.

All in all a lovely time. I'd love to go back and would recommend the hotel to anyone who's looking for some peace and relaxation. NOT the place for an adventure holiday.

Activities were overpriced as were the spa treatments - you pay a premium for convenience, The hotel is upfront about the ease with which you can shop around on Cenang Beach for something just right for you though.

Room Tip: All the chalets seemed to have their benefits.

We spent 6 unforgettable days of our honeymoon at the taj rebak resort.the hotel is located on its own private island,which gives it its exotic feel.the beach facing rooms are very spacious and have a traditional Malaysian feel to it.the service is out of this world good.the staff goes out of its way to cater to your needs.they have one person dedicated to a particular number of guests,which means u get utmost attention.also,the rooms were cleaned with flair everyday.when we came back to our room after the tiring day long Langkawi tours,we were surprised by a new orchid display on our beds every single day.they had scented candles in place...all that good stuff.the food price at the hotel is reasonable and the menu has a lot of variety to pick from.me and my wife will never forget the hospitality of the staff (thanks Thomas and Hassan) and the beauty of this hotel

The Taj Rebak Island resort is an excellent place. You get the feeling of a private island. The service is excellent. It is also well connected to Langkawi main island by ferry. The Marina bay is just fabulous.

Overall, well worth a vacation

Room Tip: Do the early bird booking

The combination of a Taj Hotel's impeccable service, tasteful, spacious rooms and facilities with a romantic secluded island ensured that we had a wonderfully restoring 3 days, despite very wet weather. Beautiful pool and private sandy beach. The breakfast was amazing! Look out for special offers. Speed boats regularly connect to the main Langawi Island, but the arrival here is a rather remote, folorn jetty with no obvious transport so pre-arrange a taxi at reception. A peaceful place for honeymoon, couples, and families.
