Vivanta by Taj Rebak Island, Langkawi
Ranked #9 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We stay in this hotel for five days during first week of April this year. It was perfect, we had a really great time on this island and this hotel. Hotel stuff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel comes with free Wi-Fi but the signal in room somehow not stable and internet speed doesn't not satisfied for me... But I love my frozen margarita during on the beach side, just love it. I will visit this hotel again in the future and other Taj hotel i think. (Beware the high season. Low season are more perfect to stay over)

Room Tip: Free Wi-Fi but the signal and internet speed was only okay

Stayed here for 2 days in July during our honeymoon. The hotel staff was already there to receive us on Langkawi Airport. You just need to inform them about your arrival details 2 days in advance. After that they take you to Langkasuka Jetty in a van. A Taj Rebak boat will take you to Rebak Island Resort in around 10-15 mins sea travel. This will give you the feel of a great stay.

Once you reach hotel, the staff welcomes you and take you to reception in a Golf cart. They will explain you everything about stay, dining, activities, etc. We booked a garden view room, which we thought was a good choice because it saved us few bucks. The room was spacious enough for a couple. Overall it was very clean and tidy. There was TV, Mini bar, Iron, Safe, Bath tub etc. Only drawback in the room was lack of sufficient light. There were 2-3 yellow lamps but no white light.

The hotel has a good swimming pool with bar facility. They also have private beach, moon deck and a beach side bar. A good restaurant that serves excellent breakfast. It also provides lot of vegetarian options throughout the day. Feels great to eat Indian food in Malaysia.

The property also provides access to a lot of free as well paid activities like cycling, nature walk trek, tennis, squash, table tennis, carrom, pool etc. They charge you 20RM for 1 hour of cycling which I found a bit expensive.

Overall a great place to spend some time and relax. The best takeaway for the property was their friendly and attentive staff. Cheers!!

We recently stayed at the Taj for 4 days. We had a room right on the beach which was very lovely. The service was also pretty good: for my birthday they decorated the room and gave me cake! Also, we never told them it was my birthday - they noticed at check-in from my passport.

The beach was nothing great in particular, but our biggest gripe was the food and the accessibility. Because the resort is on an island they have to depend on shipments from the mainland. Foods (fruit) we requested were out on certain days because they did not get delivery. Also, again since it is on an island, you are dependent on the ferry to get to the main island. When we were there the ferry was only 1/hour. In the evenings the ferry from Taj to main island departs at 5:15 and the only ferry back is at 8:45! If you miss that ferry then they will get you another one but you must pay a hefty fee (earlier shuttles are free).

Last thing to mention is that they have a nice kids area - both indoor and outdoor. The indoor area is basically one of their hotels suites converted into an (air conditioned) play area. they have great toys and my daughter was very happy.

All in all, it was a comfortable stay but only if you have no desire to leave the island.

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach are spectacular!

A property that will leave you awestruck the moment you see it! Ideal place for a relaxing vacation with nature. The property is in a private island. It was an unforgettable experience for me. The heritage villas were maintained pretty well. I would like to have a special mention for Mr.Lou Paul, the chief of security for being such a wonderful host there and giving a lot of useful tips about Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur. One draw back of the place is that you cannot get out of there at your will. One will have to wait for the scheduled boat service by Taj. However, they will help you book a Taxi from the boat jetty to wherever you want to go. They also offer free pick up and drop from the airport. Some points to note - 1. The kettle to prepare your morning Tea and Tea bags are kept in the chamber under the Television. We missed it the first day. I am not very happy with house keeping. There was no moisturiser kept on day 1. They kept it on day 2. Almost every recreation is chargeable ( table tennis, lawn tennis, nature walk etc). I expected a better sleep quality. But no complaints about what was provided. The place is absolute value for money. I don't think you can get a better place to relax!

The staff were generally very friendly, helpful and attentive. The morning walks by their hired guide was lovely. His name is Selva. He was very engaging, informative and provided useful infor ation along the route when we did the morining walks. His walk was termed by him as "walking yoga". Definately a recommended activity. Its free too.

This place is where one would go to to relax and rejuvernate.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on the resort and found it very good. Great service by all staff. Good food. Rooms were cleaned and serviced twice a day from what we could tell. The resort too care of us very well.
I would highly recommend this resort to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday with easy access to Langkawi island for shopping or eating out away from the resort.
We had a GREAT holiday........

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are within close proximity to the amenities. We rented a sea view room. Big bed, lo...
