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.
