“Needs Work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

We stayed at Tanjung Rhu resort in February for My Wife and My Wedding anniversary. The resort was OK but not Wow. If you dont want to go out and do nothing this is ideal. I found the resort too boring for me. The staff werre very good and always polite and greeted with a smile. The accomadation was tired and due for a refurb which some work was being done as we were there.
The air conditioning was an old system which made random noise at night.
I did not find the resort good value and infact very expensive for the standard. We stayed at a far superior resort after The Tangung Rhu at half the price , and still 5 star, at less than half the cost and was far more superior in every way.Im pleased I did this resort first.
It was my choice after reading reviews but was the wrong one for us. Stayed for 5 nights probly 3 nights too long.

Room Tip: Have a sea facing , views are stunning.

Thanks for staying with us and also for your frank review. The Resort is quite unique and has unlimited charm for many people who are seeking a relaxing holiday in an idyllic, beautiful environment.

We stayed here for 11 nights for our honeymoon in February and all we can see is WOW!!! Everything from check in in our room with welcome congratulations cake and drinks to the food, drinks, pools and view was amazing.

We were on the all inclusive option which meant we only had to pay for alcohol when we checked out which is def recommended. We ate in all three restaurants - Rhu, Saffron and Sands and could not find fault with any of them. The staff were friendly and were happy to chat and joke with us about the rain in the evenings especially Leni and Yusufi doing a fantastic job with the umbrellas.

On our second week wedding anniversary we booked in for a couples Malay Urut massage and a private beach BBQ which was an amazing way to celebrate. The food was cooked to perfection by Safura and don't think we'll be able to replicate it now we're back home.

The hotel put on complimentary trips to the Mangrove and we tried kayaking and windsurfing. We also hired a car through the hotel for RM250 to explore the island which we found easy, as they drive on the same side as us and the roads are quiet. Would def recommend the cable car and waterfalls.

All in all an amazing honeymoon which has given us memories we will treasure forever. Hopefully we'll return in the future for a wedding anniversary x

It was great to know that you had such a memorable Honeymoon and that we were able to contribute in some small way to those memories - that is very important to all of us here at Tanjung Rhu. Thanks for letting us know and for writing such a wondeful Review. I am sure that Leni, Yusri, Safura and all the Team here are all just as excited as I was to read your kind words and we are certainly looking forward to seeing you back for an even more special anniversary with your Tanjung Rhu Family here in Paradise!

Fantastic location, great staff, beautiful rooms and the food was excellent!!! There were few flaws but just so you're well informed- the room service cheese platter is pretty disgusting and the outside of some of the buildings do need a little bit of a paint. One last tip- If you like good food then hit the sands restaurant for lunch. The crab cakes and satay sticks were great!!!

We stayed for four nights at the end of Feb. The room was large and quiet with a great bathroom and lounge area. The decor is a little tired though.
All the restaurants served excellent food with good service and variety, particularly the puddings. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from The Library.
The secluded bay and beach are amazing, very tranquil and private. Walking to the island is fun, although we didn't make it all the way across, left it a bit late and tide was coming in. The pools looked wonderful, we only made it once as the beach was so good.
On returning home, the first thing I did was check out our next available holiday so we could book the Tanjung Rhu again, got to wait until September!
Thank you, we had a fantastic break.

Dear TimtamKL,
Thanks for the great Review and for choosing to stay with us for your holiday break. It was our pleasure to look after you and it was very pleasing to hear everything at matched your expectations. I realise that it is very important that everything is seemless and that you are able to just chill out and relax completely when you have short breaks away to refresh. I am pleased we were able to provide this and if there is anything more you need for your next break in September please feel free to let me know on: enzo@tanjungrhu.com.my and I will be happy to make sure you have another "fantastic break" back Home in Paradise!

Just returned from our 4th visit to the Tanjung Rhu and all I can say it was as lovely as the first time we went. The view and the beach are fantastic. All the staff are friendly helpful we are all ready planning trip 5 and that should say it all. The rooms are really nice and have plenty of space. The 3 restaurants offer a good variety of food and the service is excellent. Thank you all again and see you next time.

I stayed at the Tanjung Rhu for 2 nights, and I must say the rooms are really spacious, biggest batherooms, with walk in showers and a bath. We did however had the Cahaya rooms and they are a bit larger than the standard rooms. The hotel its self is very secluded, for me this was great, they have the option to go all inclusive which I recommend as there are not places to go out to eat surrounding the hotel. The hotel itself if in a block like set up, which shouldn;t put you off unless you spend every minute in your room. The beach is incredible and stretches for ages, powdery soft sand and you can, at low tide walk out realy far. The food is great at the hotel and service was a slap dash at points, but hey this is one of the mopst relaxed island i've been to, so who cares. The pools are wonderful and were never too crowded. Do not go here idf you want to walk out of your resort to find a little town etc, there is not an awful lot.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for Cahaya room

Dear GentlemanHellraiser,
Thank you for staying with us and especially for writing such a nice review. I was pleased the see that you appreciated all the aspects of the Resort that are real advantages of coming to Tanjung Rhu - Spacious rooms, incredible beach, great food and All Inclusive option, the relaxing location and the pools. I hope next time that you will also explore the Mangroves which are an exceptional educational experience for all ages. I will make sure that the service is not "Slap Dash" but rather "Tip Top" the next time you come to see us in Paradise!

Shuttle bus picked us up at the airport and drove us across the island o the resort in 30 minutes. The beach front location is breathtaking. The rooms are air-conditioned, quiet and very spacious, we could easily fit a family of four in a room. Three resort restaurants and service at almost every corner provide variety and makes you feel pampered.

The few things that could be great instead of good include the slightly dated stucco buildings, dinner table service (tapered off as the sun set) and inconsistent drink quality.
