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 .

Lots of choices from western /Malay/Chinese and Indian if you require anything special they kitchen will happily do it for you .
