This bespoke private beach resort, tucked away on a small island found just off the unspoilt East Coast of tropical Malaysia, offers a contemporary, luxury experience with warm Asian hospitality.
The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort features 184 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. Most rooms offer interconnecting options for families or friends travelling together and are beautifully appointed with oversized beds with plush bedding, rain shower, coffee and tea making facilities, Wi-Fi access, LCD flat screen TV, and balcony or veranda.
Luxurious suites offer spacious, separate bedroom and living areas with contemporary furnishings, art and artefacts and some boast spa bathtubs. For those seeking even more privacy and luxury, the Taaras Villa, a private five-bedroom residence perched high up on the cliff, boasts a villa host at your ‘beck and call’, a 16-metre infinity pool, personal fitness room and both interior and exterior lounge decks.
Enjoy breakfast on your balcony overlooking the ocean, a quick snorkel at the coral reef before boarding the launch to do a spot of island hopping or turtle watching. Then perhaps a true Robinson Crusoe moment; a castaway picnic on a deserted spot on the island or learn to dive with an energetic dive instructor. Back on land, explore the local flora and fauna on a jungle trek, or indulge in a massage and rejuvenating treatment to soothe the soul and calm the mind before a dinner where your table and chair may even be made out of sand.
Tantalise your tastebuds at The Taaras, where you will be spoiled for choice. Enjoy all-day dining with a selection of Asian dishes at the Asean Restaurant. The Beach Brasserie offers sumptuous seafood and a Western grill with Japanese and Italian corners along with a collection of wines to complement your palate.
Overlooking the pool, Asean Terrace Lounge serves a variety of refreshing beverages and snacks, or enjoy a cocktail on the beach at Bayu Beach Bar that serves light beach friendly snacks, refreshments and cocktails, all day long. The island enjoys direct access flights with Berjaya Air to Redang Island Airport from both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore Airports.
