We have just returned back from Langkawi, Rebak and I would like to thank Rebak Resort for 12 wonderful days. We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children, and we enjoyed our stay at Rebak to the maximum. The girls loved the pool area, which was used daily – not too crowdie. It’s not a huge pool, but fantastic situated with a view over the sea towards Langkawi. If you get up a 7am in the morning you will see amazing sunsets.
The resort was well maintained and the pool was clean. Rebak resort is beautiful located in between fantastic high palm trees, trader palms etc. on Palau Island (south of Langkawi) - a relaxing 15min boat ride from Langkasuka jetty, which is 5-10min from the airport.
We were greeted and picked up at the airport by Rebak staff and smoothly transported to Langkasuka jetty. Checking-in went smoothly and quickly – very polite staff – and only ½ hours after we arrived the girls were in the pool.
We had a double bedroom (Garden View), which had huge rooms which were beautifully furnished. The house keeper was very friendly and made our stay great by being so attentive. In fact all the staffs were so polite and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
There is only one restaurant on the island but there are many choices on the menu. The food is expensive compared to other places we have stayed and visited in Malaysia. This is likely due to the isolated location. Each night there is a different buffet on offer with very tasty, good quality food available. We really enjoyed the Malaysian buffet. The girls loved the Italian buffet.
Breakfast is a big buffet every morning with more or less everything you desire. We really enjoyed this, having omelettes/poached eggs and local dishes. There is nothing you can complain about. The staffs were very service minded and came and filled up your glasses of juice etc.
Happy hour drinks prices were very reasonable, however did not apply to soft drinks and juices, which I did not understand why. There was live music in the evening at the Senari restaurant and later at the Minimum Minimum bar, where pool, table tennis etc. could be played.
I have only one negative comment, which is related to the last boat transfer time from Langkasuka jetty to Rebak, which was 19:45. This meant for us that we could not enjoy a meal outside the resort unless you pay for private boat ride (160RM) back to Rebak later. For those who only stay 3-5 days are Rebak this does not mean anything, but since we stayed 12 days we felt this a limiting our full enjoyment of our visit.
Overall Rebak Island is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway – thank you.
