The Tanjung Rhu is beautifully set,in a secluded bay guarded by three impressive rocky outcrops,reminiscent of the location of the James Bond film, Man with the Golden Gun.The beach is sandy, sickle shaped and 2+ kilometres long,more importantly for the most part it is privately owned by the hotel.The beach has an amazing sandbar which stretches a long way into the sea making for an interesting walk and adds to the uniqueness of the place.It is kept spotlessly clean and very quiet (resort at 50 to 60& capacity,low season).The sea is a beautiful green but lacks the Maldivian clarity which I so love,this is only a minor quibble.Our room 805 has an excellent Sea view and everything we could have desired,Comfortable Double King,2 tvs,dvd,safe and decadent day bed.Housekeeping kept it immaculate. There are 3 pools, one for children and then two larger 50 metre ones of salt water and the Sands ozone pool.The latter is for adults and has a cocktail bar, a good spot for seeing the sunset.The Food over all is good.The Sands restaurant provides a wide and varied breakfast choice and a great valued evening set menu revolving on Thai, Malay,Indian and Chinese cuisine.The Saffron restaurant is Mediterranean in outlook primarily Italian,it is good but I recommend an outdoor sitting for the decor inside needs some TLC.Lastly comes the Rhu "fine dining", a disappointment and I like to think this was due to the change of chef.There was no value and my wife and I felt that it just didn`t cut the mustard.The food was tastier and of better value at the other restaurants.From this slight criticism I must turn to the pleasures of the Jiva Spa.This was our second home.The treatments were varied, well priced for a resort, and our two masseuses Maknah and Ayu brilliant and friendly.The resort had various excursions of which the Mangrove tour was best.Over all what made our stay so good was the friendliness and charm of the staff.From Enzo the ever present general manager down.10 out of 10.we would definitely return.

Room Tip: Pick a sea view

Dear RTGB,
It was lovely to meet you both while you with us and thanks again for choosing Tanjung Rhu for your special holiday destination. You have done a wonderful job of describing the uniqueness, beauty and very special environment of the Resort so thank you for that. As you have mentioned, one of the greatest assets is the very warm, accommodating and extremely sincere nature of the staff who are part of the Tanjung Rhu Family. We all appreciate your kind comments and especially Maknah & Ayu from the JivaRhu Wellness & Beauty Retreat who you have kindly mentioned in your review. We usually get rave reviews about the food in the Rhu Restaurant but it's good to have a contrary view as it stimulates us to work even harder to be perfect and ensure we can better satisfy your taste buds the next time you come back to see us here to Paradise!

Warmest personal regards,
Enzo Rulli
General Manager

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.

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

Dear Leam,
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!

Warmest personal regards,

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!!!

Dear owen230985,
Thanks for staying with us and I have already embarked on a mission to make a cheese platter that is "Perfection" too for the next time you come to stay with us here in Paradise! Apart from that, I am pleased that overall you had an enjoyable stay and thank you for the kind Review.

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!
