The resort is a gud one,got all the standard fare, but what stands out is the personalized service. When we walked in, the front desk was expecting us, they greeted us with a personalized welcome letter, they had all the details of our package, helped us book our sunset cruise, reminded us at the departure time, handed us towels n water for the journey, next day packed breakfast for us for our morning departure flight, heard all our concerns patiently..and yes, they serve comprehensive set of good north Indian food, if they don't have it listed on the menu, they are happy to customize it
So you don't miss the fact that it's got only one pool, and one restaurant.
Also the rooms are super spacious (but if there is movement in the room above, the noise is loud), the beach is decent..

Room Tip: We had a bit of noise from the room upstairs as the wooden floor really magnifies all sounds, so opt...

My first time at a Taj hotel, and I was very impressed. Beautiful resort on a beautiful island with all the trimmings. Staff are wonderful, very welcoming and great at their jobs. Facilities, from the rooms to the pool to the restaurant are all excellent.
You can choose to do a lot of nothing - lounge by the pool or on the beach - but you would miss out on a lot. Try the cooking demonstration, the kayaking, the bikes, the morning nature walk, tennis and squash, tour the gardens, go the movies, and go to the spa. You won't regret it!
Excellent resort and very good value for the money.

My family thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Rebak. A choice that we never regretted.

The staff exemplified what real customer service is all about, and thus ensuring we had a great stay throughout.

Special thanks go to Rajen Krishnasamy (Executive Assistant Manager - F&B) who had significantly contributed to our great stay.

Highlights -
a) Very nice and clean beach.
b) Comfy room.
c) Efficiently managed boat rides between Rebak island and Port Langkasuka.
d) Airport to port was several minutes away, so it saves us time.
e) Last but not least, well trained customer-serviced staff

Again, thank you, and will come back to this hotel when we visit Langkawi again.

Located off the coast of Langkawi and reachable by scheduled boat services. Nice hospitable staff, and in fact they organized an independence day get together party in the evening for the Indians on the island. nice occasion to meet some people. Rooms are slightly dated, but overall kept up with the expectations. Negative : Only one swimming pool and one restaurant. (excluding the seafood cafe)

We stayed at the Rebak island resort for three days and each day was a memory of its own. From the time we arrived till the time we left the place, not a single moment was dull. There is a yacht that ferries you from the main island. The place is beautiful with lot of activities to do. Food is awesome. The breakfast buffet served lot of vegetarian Indian options which was a good relief from having bread and cornflakes everyday while in Kualalumpur. The rooms are quite spacious and had a breath-taking view of the sea. Only drawback, there were lot of mosquitoes around inspite of spraying pesticide. Overall, an amazing experience and we loved the hospitality of Taj.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room over a villa.

Rebak Island Resort is located off the Langkawi Island and need to be reached by a boat. The main port (Port Langkasuka) is about 5 min from the Airport and the resort is 15 min boat ride from the port. The resort runs scheduled boat service free of cost so really going to the main island is not a problem.

Reaching the resort we were treated to a glass of welcome drink ,some wet towels and a beautiful view of the lovely beach and very well maintained garden.

We had to wait for an hour (initially was upsetting) to get our room as we were ahead of the check in time. However when we were escorted to the room we were awestruck with the room and the view from it. The resort has the best bathroom I have ever seen. They are spacious and beautifully done. The rooms are also quite spacious with a balcony which had an amazing sea view.

There are 2 highlights of this resort. The first is the scenic beauty of the place. The beach is calm and beautiful, the resort is very well maintained with lots of greenery.
The second is the staff. All of them are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and extremely courteous. I would here like to mention 2 people who stood out amongst all- Hamid and Ankit. They were polite and extremely helpful. The staff are very well organized be it room service, housekeeping, outdoor activity or just the buggy service. Other than during the check in time we dint have to wait for anything even for 10 mins.

The restaurant is slightly expensive, but being a 5 star resort this is justified. You can do kayaking and cycling 1 hour every day which is free of cost.

As far as thing to do in Langkawi goes we hired a bike from the resort at 80 MYR for 1 day and went for sightseeing- Sky bridge, Crocodile farm, Kuah town…
The second day we went for Mangroves and caves exploration which was booked at the resort itself (Dev’s Adventure) which was truly spellbinding and showcased the beauty of Langkawi.
The remaining days we spent relaxing in the resort itself.

Truly one word that explains Rebak Island Resort is Awesome!!!

Room Tip: Any sea view or even partial sea view room.

My partner and I absolutely loved this place for its relaxed chilled out island setting and the wonderful attentive, observant but non fuss! fuss! staff, the sort of thing that really irritates at some five star hotels.

From the time we arrived we knew we had made the right choice as an isolated hotel on an island is not for everyone but the beautiful setting , clean safe, swimming beach ,immaculate room [ours was sea front with a view of our own monitor lizard on the rocks] with a never ending supply of bottled water made this stay very memorable and again a credit to the cleaning staff.

We would consider ourselves quite lizard like as we like nothing better than to laze around by the pool and beach, there were sun beds aplenty and the pool staff were happy to arrange everything for you. There seemed to be plenty of activities arranged for the week plus bicycle hire.

With regard to food, we ate themed buffet most evenings although there there is an a lacarte, Some evenings were better than others depending on your personal taste. I don't think grilled slipper lobster is too harsh on anyone :-) . Breakfast is plentiful and wide choice of western and asian options.

There is also a regular shuttle boat back to Langkawi which can be exhillerating if the sea is choppy, but does offer a good regular service.

One morning at breakfast we were greeted by the General Manager, by name - he had not met us previously and this kind of attention to detail is indicative of all of the staff at Rebak Island.

If its your thing, then have a happy hour cocktail on the beach at the small rustic venue. Here you will meet some very interesting characters resident at the local marina. Our regular bar mixer and shaker, Yans, deserveres a special mention - always smiling and on the ball....

To summerise, this resort is great value for money, don't come here if you want mutiple high end dining options, BUT if you want and expect a first class service, in an exotic,private and peaceful location, you will not be dissapointed !

We stayed for 5 nights, if we had stayed any longer we would have beeen horizontal by the time we left (a couple of extra days would not have been a problem !!! ).

Room Tip: Go for Beach View Delux 1st floor if you want to be in a quite part of the island and have uninterup...
