Taaras is a resort with its own private beach accessible only by hotel guess. The staff are all very friendly & we'll manners. We had small problem with our water heater which responded well by the maintenance. The food is average & quite pricey.

A Great beach for those whom looking for a paradise spot to chill. Staff was so nice and helpful, however due to season they were overloaded, so there were lots of delay. The rest like rooms, food, activities was just OK.

After staying 3 nights at another resort at Redang that did NOT meet our expectations at all, checking in at the Taaras was a much needed experience.

Compared to other resorts on this island, I believe the Taaras Redang is better located. Ambience inside and around the hotel is very welcoming. Staffs are friendly and helpful. The snorkeling sites are great for even the first-timers. However as the resort authority claims it as a five star resort, i would recommend them to renovate the accommodation facility, upgrade...

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
