We've just arrived back after a whistle stop tour of KL, Sabah and Langkawi.
The Rebak Island Resort was our final hotel staying here for five nights in total. Set on a lovely island surrounded by loads of different trees, and excellent garden. We booked a one bedroom garden room but were lucky to get one near to the pool. The room was excellent, the only issue was the noise of our neighbour upstairs banging about and shouting late at night. Luckily they departed after our first night. This though is not the hotels fault, you get these people everywhere.
What sets this hotel apart for us is the service from the staff. Bayu, Adam, Neo, Shalabul( our room attendant( sorry if I spelt it incorrectly) and Hamid to name but a few deserve a mention. So friendly and always a smile, as did everyone else to be honest.
The beach was so quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We did venture out onto the main island, visiting Pantai Cenang, the cable car ( worth a visit ) and Kuah (not worth a visit), and although we found the last boat, 19:45 restrictive, it didn't obstruct. We were told though by the yachting fraternity that there are other boats, which adds to some confusion. Perhaps this could be publicised even if there is a charge for later boats, with pre-booking essential.
Should we return to Langkawi, this is definitely the hotel we would choose to return to.
