Vivanta by Taj Rebak Island, Langkawi
Ranked #9 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We stayed for 3 nights between 2nd and 4th of September. Though not what one would strictly call a 5 star property, the staff more than compensates by being so friendly.
We stayed at the Sea view room which is better than the Garden view room if you're travelling as a couple. On the other hand, the garden view rooms seem to be larger with 2 rooms so would be ideal for a family.
The food was good, so was the breakfast spread. The staff could have been more careful in keeping up the surprise of dinner my husband had organized for us at the Moon Deck Cabbana.
The gym was below average. They should work on it.
The convenience store had most emergency articles but it wasn't maintained properly. Looked like a room where stuff was randomly thrown around.
A resort is only as good as their worst element.
Spa service was good but very expensive.
The only point for all guests to remember is that if your return flight is during the day, then you have to check the time and take the appropriate scheduled ferry back to Langkasuka port at Langkawi mainland. They shan't be arranging a private drop. It helps that the airport officials are quite lenient with check-in timings.
Coming back to the main part of my review. We would like to specially thank the entire staff at Rebak Taj for the wonderful service starting from Mr. Sandip Mukherjee and Ankit. It would be unfair to mention only a few names. Every member of the staff inquired how our stay was, offered to take us around the property and saw to it that we were made to feel good. Never felt this kind of friendliness and warmth at any other place we've stayed at.

We took a two-bedroom suite and spent 4 nights there with the family. The service was impeccable! Our rooms got serviced twice a day. The staff were very friendly. They even remembered our names! The resort was very relaxing, peaceful, home away from home. Although it is a private island, the resort has its own activities such as complimentary kayaking, cooking lessons, nature walks etc. Highly recommended for a idyllic getaway!

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are great if you like the seaview.

Selected this place as our honeymoon destination and it didn't disappoint. Away from all the traffic, pollution, noise. Property covers the complete island so its complete safe to roam around even at odd hours. Good food, very friendly staff and a speed boat(complimantary) to take you to/from hotel.

Unlike the other hotels in the Taj group, Taj Rebak is not an out-and-out "5-star" resort and nor does it pretend to be. During our 10 night stay, the warm and attentive staff, diverse food options and overall relaxing atmosphere all contributed to the best experience a "4.5-star" resort can offer.

Special thanks to the staff who made our 1st wedding anniversary and my 30th birthday that extra bit special, namely Mr Sandeep Mukherjee, Dalim, Pantea, Pravin, Sohag, Murali and Paul.

Stayed for 4 nights in September and had a fantastic holiday. It could not have been so good without the friendly and caring staff. The activity desk helped us plan our activities in such a manner that we were able to do quite a lot of activities in a short time and at the same time, laze around the beach and the resort. They also ensured we were given refreshments, water and towels when we went for snorkelling,diving and island hopping. The buggy facility was always available and helped getting around the island. The food in both the buffet and À la carte was good and being a vegetarian I had no problem with the food. The Chef and the restaurant manager were always trying to check if I was comfortable with the food options. They had a widespread of food. Every day the dinner buffet had a different theme. The food was amazing.
If you are looking for a good family holiday the Rebak is the right place in Langkwai

Upon checking in,it took 20 minutes to be allocated a room. Staff was helpful,rooms were spacious but the aircon was noisy and some parts of the wooden floor was rotting away. As reviewed earlier by another guest,the balcony doors doesnt make one feel safe inside as the door locks were old,flimsy and some broken. My room had no insect repellent,they provided an electrical gadget but no refills. Towels and toiletries were not up to 5 star standard.

Facility wise,this hotel would suit honeymooners who just stay in the room and dont ever go out. The "fitness center" is a death trap with poor ventilation with cardio machines that come from the 70s. The lighting was dark and that is definitely not safe. I had to open all 4 doors to get proper ventilation despite the fan at its fastest speed. They only provide extensive range of dumbbells,2 benches and deflated fit balls! No gym towel,except handkerchief size paper towel were on the table,.no fruits..and this is 5 star? Out of 5 cardio machines,only 2 worked..plus the tv screen is at the back of ones head,only to be watched by the mirror in front of you. Ridiculous and stupid. I called front desk and a helpful staff,Shukri came by to try to help. I told him that a 4star in Thailand Island resort or Saigon would provide better than this.

Food wise was so so,since one has no choice to eat. Either you go to mainland or the hotels' restaurant. I think people come here,allured by the fact that it is on a remote island. One can be assured privacy here,but not facilities,nor standards of a 5star. If one is accustomed to 5stars around South East Asia,one knows that this is a rip off.
