Vivanta by Taj Rebak Island, Langkawi
Ranked #9 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Meet and Greet service was prompt .
Five minutes drive from the airport to the exclusive Taj Rebak Jetty .
We had a 20 minutes wait for the next boat service which gave us ample time to grab a cold beer from the open bar opposite the Jetty .
The journey by the speed boat was approximately 15 minutes filled with sun & fun .
On arrival we were checked in promptly with a glass of fresh Guava juice .

Rooms were big and kept very clean at all times .
We stayed for 3 nights and experienced zero problems none at all to be honest .
Our room was facing the sea which I requested at the time of booking directly from the hotel and this was given complimentary .
Malaysia is a tropical country and you may come across insects and mosquitoes however having said that we did not experience much of a problem as each room has mosquito coils .

Breakfast was included with the price we paid and it was brilliant .
Lots of choices from western /Malay/Chinese and Indian if you require anything special they kitchen will happily do it for you .

Please see my travel tips for this wonderful resort

Book directly with the Hotel via email you will get a good deal and additional discounts for food /drinks /Spa plus comp airport transfers
Request for a sea view upstairs room .
Book a Bike at the reception free of charge deposit of 20RM you get it back after returning the cycle back do a trip around the island .
Take the comp boat service they provide to the main land of Langkawi to experience the local culture /food and beach .
The month of Feb is the best time to visit as you will experience good sunshine and no rain
Check for happy hour in the pool bar for half price cocktails , the cocktails are very good here .
Stay for a maximum of 3 -4 Days otherwise you will get bored as this is a private island with the beach in front and the lush jungle at the back
Beautiful scenery and very quiet .

We stayed for 3 nights at the Rebak and moved on to the main land Langkawi for another 3 days to experience local food & activities .
There are plenty of hotels to choose from for any budget .

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea view first floor

Fantastic place for a honeymoon along with the monsoon showers which was totally unexpected, service at the hotel was beyond satisfaction, staff were very friendly and courteous all the time. The room was comfortable, spacious and cozy with a beach and garden view. The free shuttle service between the resort and Langkawi town was helpful throughout our 6 days stay. The food at the resort was also delicious and had many vegetarian options for Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner. The hotel staff also helped us arrange our local island tours for us to enjoy the most despite the rains. We did spend a day in the resort itself, and it was quite a refreshing experience while we were exploring the whole resort area. The resort also provides bikes to bike around if you are too tired to walk all the way. My husband and I were glad we stayed at this resort and we look forward to making another visit sometime in future... maybe for our anniversary!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden or beach are very relaxing

the pool viewing the sea is great, our surprising upgrade to seaview was so perfect, but the best: wild Hornbills flying around in the garden and around the pool!

Just relaxed !! you will find everything you need there and will not want to leave this paradise to go in town. You can hire kayaks, bicycles, board games, tennis raquets and balls. Wonderful place for couples.

I book,it as 5 start hotel whan I read about in the tripadvisor I found it 4 start in booking.com and agoda is 5 start resort. Overall I like it as four start hotel is very good resort and I give it 3.5 out of 5 . If it 5 start hotel I give it 2.5 out of four. The bad think is you must take the hotel bote to come to the hotel and they are no bote after 7:45 pm so if you come liter you have to pay 50 usd so you must be on time.

Stayed for 3 night week end to de stress perfect for that I had been before so knew what to expect. Since last visit the food available seems to have reduced slightly in scope. I had looked for the "pasta bar" we enjoyed last time and was told it was no more. After paying for the buffet and starting on that I was annoyed to see the pasta bar appear. The buffet is expensive and well prepared but meat and fish provided are average quality at best. We also asked for a day outing to be booked and only found out at 11 at night that this had not been done no reason given. Went to swim in the sea one day and after a few minutes realised that there were jelly fish in the water no advice on this from hotel and no one seemed to be checking. The beach bar seemed to open on a random schedule not following the advertised times. This generally are the syptoms of why this hotel is not ratable as excellent. As pointed out by others some of the staff are poorly trained and maybe are in the wrong career? Communicating to guests could be much better lots of "hello good day" but not much info on things you need to make a truelly memorable stay. As noted below hotel now seems to be on the flight path did one of the hotels at Cerang pay for path to be moved?

Room Tip: If you have been there before make sure you let the desk know even if you book through low cost room...
