Taaras was amazing. The room above all was the best part of it. The Sea View Hill Deluxe was beautiful. Initially booked a Hill View Deluxe, but was lucky to upgrade to Sea View at the reception. The food to me wasn't that good and overpriced. Realized that the only thing I could eat and enjoy was the Burgers which...

Crystal clear water, amazing views, beautiful grounds and lovely staff. Service is haphazard at the beach bar although management appear to be putting better processes into place. Rooms are great, recommend getting a cliff view suite - unsurpassed views. Dive team are fantastic and great guides

We stayed at Taaras for a few days of r&r. It's a 2nd visit. No surprises - passable facilities and basic rooms. Food choices and quality were poor so we relied on the local eateries a short stroll outside for lunches and dinners. Service was ordinary but a few staff in the cafe and front desk had great attitude and...

This is a gem of a resort, tucked away on Redang Island, around an hour by speedboat from Merang jetty. The beach is world standard, with crystal clear waters and plenty of fish. If you like snorkeling, scubadiving and turtle watching, this is the place. Some places at the resort look tired eg maintenance of common areas and rooms. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
‘The Taaras’ is a bespoke Private Beach Residence, tucked away and hidden from the outside world on a small Island found just off the unspoilt East Coast of tropical Malaysia. Considered to be one of the most beautiful Island locations in the South China Sea, the Isle of Redang is home to our natural, yet stylish resort found on one of the most spectacular bays surrounded by one of the bluest oceans on earth. The resorts ethos is to provide a contemporary, barefoot luxury experience with warm Asian hospitality, remembered with a smile long into the future. The name of the property is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘TAARA’, meaning ‘Star or Apple of my eye’ as well as ‘Goddess of the Sea’ which are all represented and epitomised by our mermaid figurehead. The resort is managed by The Taaras Luxury Group, and was formerly known as Berjaya Redang Resort managed by Berjaya Hotels and Resorts. With the stylish suites and rooms, as well as a stunning five bedroom Private Villa perched high up on the cliff overlooking the ocean and resort below. The resort boasts commissioned furniture and bespoke photography of Redang Island and the landscapes of Malaysia. Each suite or room contains oversized beds and hand-picked linens and fabrics for your comfort. Most rooms and all suites have larger washrooms containing both bath tub and separate rain or monsoon shower (some with spa bathtubs looking out over the rainforest or the bay). Most residences have an outdoor balcony or verandah and our suites at the top of the cliff summit have spectacular views over the beach and ocean below. For clients who prefer or require further privacy ‘The Cliff Private Villa Bay & Sea View’, our private five bedroom residence perched high up on the cliff more than meets the requirements; private access, a Villa Host at your ‘beck and call’ as well as twenty four hour security; should it be a necessary requirement. The residence also enjoys a sixteen meter Infinity swimming pool, personal fitness room and both interior and exterior lounge. ... more   less
