Rundown Resort, no food in resorts restaurant and poor planning on eatery arrangement. Have to walk 15min to nearest stall which only opens for certain time. No transport or bicycle is provided.
Felt trapped without food.

Friendly Staffs, nice place, superb view,
Not direct accessible to main beach.

Very hard and old bed can feel the spring, better to sleep on floor.

Poor toilet, noisy sanitary wares. Paint stain everywhere, poor workmanship on tiles.
Worn-out wares and stain marks. Like same wares since 80’s.

Poor soundproof wall / dampening. Can hear every movement of neighbours, foot steps/remote noise/tv sound/door sound/toilet flush/shower. (How would us feel when others can hear everything. Any romantic session will be interesting for the neighbour beside and below. Strong Squeaky noise on furnitures/doors/bed set/water tabs.

4 rooms in double story semi-D concept with stairs.

Fantastic tourist tour plan arrangement with shutter van and big boat to attractive destination which includes multiple snorkelling locations. (Dont forget to take ubat mabuk laut to avoid vomiting, its only RM1/tablet).

Only breakfast is good in resort, lunch and dinner is like restaurant full of hollow man maybe.

The staffs are doing the best to keep the place good by serving us good.

I have expected a high standard, due to the experience of berjaya group managed resort at langkawi, which was so good.
This place in Terengganu needs serious maintenance and good advertisement to create guest volume.

Very nice view mixed with forest and beach yet the resort is average and rundown luxury looks.

Lovely hotel on the beach
We had both breakfast and lunch there and they were lovely.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The only negative was the wifi which was very poor.
Overall a great holiday!

We were there for 2 Nights and 3 Days with 4 adults and 3 kids. Kids ages were 4.5 , 4.5 and 2.5 years old. We booked the early bird fullboard package via online from RIR website. I would say it's a worths with the price! No regret. All inclusive and we dont really need to spend an extra money during our stay there except that I went for the foot massage at the spa in the resort which obviously not covered in the package ;) Other than that all covered in the package, from ferry tansfer at Shahbandar Jetty to Redang Jetty, transport from Redang Jetty to RIR, snorkelling activities with equipments, and marine park visit.

We arrived on March 6th, 2018. RIR is a really good place from hustle and bustle from city life. A very quiet and private stay for us. Felt so serene and peaceful during our stay in RIR.

Excellent customer service. All staffs (front desk people, shuttle bus driver, waitress at the restaurant, gardener, cleaner) were so friendly and helpful.

Amazing snorkelling services! Thumbs up to the 3 mans who brought us to the 4 stops! 3.5 hours flew by so fast. We wish we could stay longer at each stops to explore more the underwater life. We felt so lucky because we're able to see the turtle during the snorkelling. Marine Park was a great place too! There are plenty of colorful fish and beautiful corals. My girls enjoyed feeding the fish and played on the shore.

The food at the RIR restaurant is not that bad, in fact quite good.

Our room is the one with balcony facing the forest trees which is really connecting with nature. :)
The room is old but very comfortable and clean. We got a king bed and 1 extra mattress. While the other room, we got 2 single beds and 1 extra mattress. Aircond is functioning well, bed sheets and towel are clean. Toilet is a bit seasoned but water heater is working very well.

There's a free shuttle to the public beach at 530 pm everyday. This is a MUST go place. Don't miss it. It has white sand, a very clean, beautiful beach with crystal clear waters.

Done so many research,finally is my turn to go Redang Island Resort..After 1 night stay at KT hotel,we go to Shahbandar Jetty at the second day morning.Everything is OK and after about 2 hour we arrive Redang Island.There will have the staff and shuttle bus is waiting for you at Redang Island Jetty.Got few stall(mamak) near there.From Jetty to Resort about 5minutes.The receptionist staff was very friendly and helpful.Lobby to room have to walk about 10minutes.I think is quite healthy cause sweat alot.The room was nice and aircond work well also.After settle our stuff,we just have a lunch at resort restaurant.The price is acceptable for both of us since we come to relax and taste good also.The swimming pool was clean.As I read have review mention that here got a lot of GECKO and BATS..NO,I didnt even saw it but if you choose the seaview chalet you can see the squirrel on the trees.Dont worry also,here have a small convinient shop.If the resort can provide bicycle/motorcycle to rent will be better and convinient for those free trip traveller.
For those activities such as:LongBeach trip,sunset viewing,public beach trip,marine park,Karaoke....All these activities with charging and got 2 section time to choose.
We choose for the Long Beach trip for day 2 evening(Section 1 :9.00AM-2PM Section 2 :6.00PM-10.30PM)..A bit sad that we cant see any sunset at other beach because of rain.But we had a nice dinner at the public foodcourt.
The luckily things is we didnt see any monkey come out but the last day,they just appear for a while then dissappear again.Beware of the monkeys.
This resort is suitable for those who wish to relax and wish for quiet place.Really feel peaceful while I stay for 3 day here.Sure will come here again if I visit to Redang.

Our flight departed Kuala Lumpur at 11:30 am. We landed at 12:15 pm. We took a taxi to the ferry, and waited 2 hours. The ferry took nearly 2 hours to arrive at the Redang Island Resort. Then we had to take a broken-down shuttle bus to the resort, which looked dirty and, well, "unresort-like". We got to our antiquated room, and there, skirting about under pseudo-wooden doors, were lizard-like creatures. There was broken furniture, a putrid smell, and a bathroom that looked like it belonged in a low budget bus station. We could not go out on the balcony because monkeys had made it their hangout! Then there was a blackout throughout the entire resort! But my real anger had to do with all the taxes tourism employees attributed to the Malaysian government. Our trip was paid in full, yet we had to pay a marine tax, a foreigner tax, and then a new tourism tax implemented in June 2017. We switched hotels (to the Taaras Beach & Spa Resort - RM950 for one night!), which was better, but there we endured bad food & watered-down, expensive drinks at the restaurant; the manager was not helpful and had a pissy attitude; the wait staff seemed confused about everything; it took them 20 minutes to deliver a glass of watermelon juice and a Singapore Sling...only after I complained), low-flying bats (which was a real concern since Malaysia currently has a rabies outbreak), geckos everywhere, and stray cats. I had to call my man all the way in Saudi freakin' Arabia to help us change our flight because the wifi was "nofi", however, Air Asia's customer service was closed. Also there were no ATMs anywhere on the island; the front desk said it was because telecommunications were bad there; funny how their credit card machines worked every time! After one night on this island, we cut our vacation short and went back to modern civilization in Kuala Lumpur; we had to pay RM980 for a same-day flight). Take my advice and go somewhere else!!! (P.S. The front desk staff at Redang Island Resort were very empathetic and helpful: Juana & Fatiha!)

Room Tip: Taaras: stay here if you must stay on this island!
