Stayed at this hotel twice in June 2005 and June 2006 with my family including two children and somewhat disappointed to read that one of the pools now adults only. Would make me think twice about returning which I had been planning. Some people really are so miserable, just seeming to hate to see anyone having fun. Our children really...

Although Langkawi wasnt my favorite place, I loved this resort (we also stayed at The Datai and preferred Thanjung Rhu). The only downside was that no-one was at the bar after dinner!! most people went to their rooms. But everything was perfect for us! from all staff knowing our name, to the wonderful half board that was ala carte not...

My arrival was very pleasant and enjoyable. The food at Tanjung Rhu was outstanding, the spa treatment that was provided was the best ever we have ever received, and it was worth every single cent. We had a great vacation and wished we didn’t have to leave, we will tell everyone we know to come here in the future.

I have recently returned from Tanjung Rhu and will certainly return back. The hotel was perfect for a quiet family holiday. My 2 boys aged 5 and 9 loved the hotel , there was plenty for them to do and they met some lovely friends. The hotel limits the number of children staying which ensures that the hotel is not...

We stayed at the resort with our 10-month old baby son. We will try not to repeat the previous positive reviews that are very accurate and hope to add additional feedback.

We stayed here at the beginning of February for 10 nights after being recommended the Tanjung Rhu by two people and reading Trip Advisor.
