We were pampered from the minute we land till the day we left! The resort arranged for pick up at the airport and were taken to the jetty that was about 10 minutes drive away. Soon after, we were on the boat to the private island. Greeted by friendly staff and light refreshments, we were checked in within 15 minutes! By far the most efficient check in I've experienced.

Stepping into our room was a bliss as the A/C was turned on and the room was splendid! Breakfast was great but could add a little more variety. Service was excellent from the reception desk to the pool service and restaurant staff were quick to attend to our needs.

The in-house activities was tons of fun as we went kayaking, played a little table tennis, Jenga and even the traditional game of Congkak.

Though I would choose a different beach given a choice, the service at Rebak Island Resort will keep me coming back!

Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Rent a car at the island upon landing at the airport.

The resort lived up to its Taj lineage. The place was impeccable, service was outstanding and location was simply great.

The resort is about 15 min boat ride from special jetty, which itself is about 5 min drive from airport. Boats leave for resort at defined schedule and there is decent open lounge with some arrangements for some drinks to cool you off. The last boat to the island leaves around 7:30 PM. You pay for the trip if you are miss the boat. (~150 MYR)

Once you reach the resort, you are in a totally different place, a place where nature, forest and the hotel blend well.

The check in process were smooth & seamless. The rooms were very well fitted, with a large dressing area. separate shower and bath tub and all the usual bells and whistles expected from a place like this.

The pool is good, the beach is nice calm and serene, though the water is not the best in terms of clarity. Free kayaks are available for use and so are bikes, which for sure come handy since the area around the resort can be fun exploring on bike.

Food overall was good with around 55 MYR for breakfast and 85 MYR for buffet dinner (Taxes extra). The dinner theme changes based on the day of the week.

The two top things which stand out in the resort are the peace & serenity of the place and the service. All the staff members were well trained, efficient and provided the service with smile and warmth.

The head of resort, Mr. Sandeep could be seen chatting with the guests, telling things to do and how to make best of the place. We met him several times in a given day, at different location, checking every piece off the property ensuring that everything was ship shape.

Highly recommended if you are heading for Langkawi.

Room Tip: Nice place to spend time with family. There is a lot to do in the resort. Do give enough time to ex...

We have just returned from a fabulous week spent at the Taj Rebak island resort. Getting there by pre arranged boat conveying you at high speed was a treat indeed.
Check in smooth and efficient. As a family of four we stayed in a garden view deluxe two bedroomed room. Very clean and well appointed. Restaurant service, pool bar service, beach/life guard attendants service was all first class and attentive.
The island is truly tropical and would not hesitate to return.

We have booked this resort for next week, and our flights have been rescheduled which works out we have to leave a day early.
There was no other way to get back home so i contacted the resort as i had paid fully up front weeks before and there is no changes, no refunds for any reason.
Im not so happy with this because i think there should be some sort of leniency for things like airlines cancelling flights which you can not change.

Anyway i hope our actual stay there is better than the start.

It is difficult to pen down our experience in words but let me try sharing my experience with Taj Langkawi during my holiday visit to Country.

We (me & my Friend) stay in Delhi and were exploring on various options to visit places for holiday during the autumn break at school and zeroed down to Singapore Malaysia trip. I had the impression that 3 days at Taj Langkawi would be good enough as this property will be similar to Taj property at Goa. We got our booking through Khairun & ChuiWei, who were prompt and quick to revert.

After spending few days at Kuala Lumpur, we took the Malaysian airlines flight and got at Langkawi airport. We were received by Ms. May Aw from Taj and were delighted to interact with her while she explained about the place and resort.

While we waited for boat at the port, we & our luggage were well taken care by very active security staff. I cant recollect reaching any island resort so effortlessly.

Right from the time we were dropped by boat till we reached our room, we were delighted to see the property and its cleaniness. Must tell that staff was very corporative and everone was ready to help. Beach was again very clean, organinsed and delghtful to watch.

While we entered the room,we got a personalised and hand written letter from GM in the room welcoming us to the property. Very impressive!!!

Staying at rooms was a delight itself and have set high benchmarks about beach property.
We must compliment the management for excellent arrangement of various activities at resort. 1st we were not very keen to go for nature walk but when we went… cant explain how good Selva was. It was so much of fun …

With everyone (other guests) whom we interacted, praised the property and infact few regreted for not staying for long. We too felt the same. We were updated by staff on various activites we can do while enjoing the property and we did all….

We enjoyed our stay at various locations right from Thiland to US but have become fan of this hotel. It has wonderful location and amazing view from room. Staff was very corporative and can feel the positive energy right from GM to each staff. People were active and quick to respond.
Restaurant spread were very nice. Rajan, Chef Mahesh and Murali at restaurant was kind enough to understand our food requirement and quality of food was the best. We rank this hotel as excellent on location, food and service. See the smiling faces of staff ...

We interacted with Chief of security and Hotel GM on daily basis… some time causally and some time got into discussion.

We must say the overall visit was beyond expectations and we carried lot of good memories to charish. We have lot of snaps but sharing few due to space constraint.

I want to thank Taj, Mr Mukherjee and all staff for making our experience so wonderful and delightful.
I have already recommended this hotel to various people. My snaps at Facebook are liked by lot of friends and they are also amazed with the magnificence of this property. I promise to visit again shortly….

Room Tip: Take any room, it does not make any diff to your experience

My husband and I chose to stay at Rebak Island resort as we were visiting our friends who live on their boat at the marina there, otherwise we wouldn't have chosen this resort as there are more beautiful beach resorts around the globe. As this is the only hotel on the small island you are kind of at their mercy.
Now that said, the service could not be faulted. There was more than enough staff to attend to our every whim with warmth, courtesy and respect. We were well looked after with a transfer in the managers car from the airport to the boat terminal, a call after settling in the check if our room was ok and on our last night our bed was decorated with tropical flowers.
While this is a quiet tropical island paradise, the water is not clear and there are rocks just off the main beach so it is not as picturesque as fiji perhaps. The resort on the other hand is very picturesque, well maintained and very Asian in decor with dark wood predominating.
We had one of the deluxe seaview rooms which was large with a patio and outdoor shower and views of the water and about 10 steps to the sand and the beach lounge chairs.
The main restaurant is exceptionally good with quality food, a huge menu (even a couple of organic choices) and a very good wine selection.
The pool is large and inviting with a swim up bar which closes at 6pm when the small and cute beach bar opens. You can also dine privately on a table set up in the cabana on the point or on a table set up on the beach. We did this with our friends and opted for the seafood bbq menu. It was expensive but well worth it and a night to remember.
One tip is that you get to and from the island on a small motor boat that screams across the bay to a time table about 6 times per day and on the schedule you will see the last boat brings you back from the main island of Langkawi at 7.30pm. This means you will be back for dinner on the island but actually the last boat runs at 10.30pm which does give you enough time for the mainland night markets or a cheap dinner instead of being stuck at the hotel every night.

Room Tip: We had prime position and a large room 402
