    Private beach & crystal clear waters

    Overall good stay. The private beach and crystal clear waters are the main attraction here. Friendly & accommodating staff, they try their best to give good service amidst a fully occupancy weekend. Rooms are decently maintained although a little dated. Food is pricey but yummy with big portions - try their room service!

    beautiful property and the staff is excellent. The beaches are excellent. There are 17 plus turtles to swim with every morning. The water is warm and clear. ATV's are a kick.

    Nice enough place. Long drive from Penang, 7 hours. Rooms good, food good, activities good but none of these rank as 5 star. The attraction has to be the powder sand beach, crystal clear water and good snorkelling and diving options. That should be enough for those so inclined.

    True clear waters and nice sandy beach

    On a family trip to farewell our two years journey in Malaysia and we couldn't find a better place to do it. Taaras high side is the Caribbean style location, white sandy beach, and nice transparent water. The hotel is not like in caribe, a bit outdated (rooms) and some people may complain about cleanness, but if you trade off for the location and the fun outdoor activities this is an amazing place

    Excellent resort - but the food a rip off

    Resort is very nice and the staff are friendly. Just expect to pay through the nose for food, drink and transfers. 4 night stay was 1k USD for the room with breakfast but the total bill was 2k USD...

    Hits and Misses

    We stayed at Taaras for my fiancé’s 30th birthday. It was a combination of hits and misses. Whilst the hotel itself, activities and beach were amazing, as a luxury hotel it disappoints in terms of service and food. Food is far below what is expected from a luxury hotel, for the price quoted. It was highly disappointing. Food tasted and we’re presented as more like canteen food than something to be served in a hotel carrying such a star rating. Service at the restaurants and bar have much to be improved on. We’ve seen numerous occasions of chaos and disorganisation. The staff lacks attentiveness and we found ourselves hunting for attention from time to time. We also noted that the paper that the hotel used to print our map of the resort had the receipt of a past guest on the other side of the paper (with name, address and all!). A huge breach from a PDPA standpoint and a definitely not something you’d expect from a luxury hotel. Lastly, the hotel forgot to provide a cake for my fiancé in the room. I’ve emailed them before arriving and they said they will leave a complementary cake in the room, but it never arrived. It all falls back to my point above, ie lack of attentiveness by the staff. FYI - They know it’s my fiancé’s birthday from my emails and her passport info. Also, they even provided an arrangement on the bed stating Happy Birthday. This oversight is clearly clumsy at best. Notwithstanding the above, the dive team was great.

    Fun trip amidst COVID19 restrictions

    We made a trip recently to this beautiful resort. It was a trip with 6 families with kids from 8yo to 1yo. We had a pleasant experience. Massage service was wonderful; we had a 20% discount at non peak period. Pool is very kid-friendly with plenty of shallow areas, so we are able to leave the kids alone under supervision from the poolside. Would like it if we have more deck chairs by the pool; it gets taken up quite quickly. Beach is clean, private, calm waters, plenty of deck chairs and shaded area. You can definitely swim around the area with the turtle bay just next to it. They have daily turtle hatchling release; where you pay a fee to release one on your own; else you can stand by the side and watch. I find that the Jojo Playroom is abit too cold for the kids; would like it more if there's more activities planned for the kids in the playroom. Probably my least favourite part of the trip is the food in the hotel; not all dishes to my liking and during breakfast time, the restaurant cannot cope with the crowd, therefore long line at the egg station. Weird enough, their beef dishes are always the more delicious dish during my meals there. You may also opt to eat out; there's one restaurant just outside the gate with more restaurants further down the road. Passenger transfer to jetty was seamless; impressed with their efficiency. Staff members in the hotel are always helpful and smiling. Overall it was a good experience and I'd visit again sometime.

    Beautiful place but watch out for the monkeys!

    We had a lovely time here however there were a few disappointments. Did not see much social distancing and the breakfast was too crowded with many not following SOP procedures. Some guests crossed the barriers and qere taking their own food from the buffet. Not enough staff to handle the crowd and food was either too salty or bland. The worst was when monkeys got into our room and ransacked our snacks and no one had the courtesy to inform us of the incident. No phone call or note left. We only found out when we got back to the room at the end of the day...we thought we had been robbed! We had made sure and double checked everything was closed tight and locked before we left as we saw the monkeys in the morning but hotel insisted they were in the room by the time housekeeping got in. I have no idea how they got in and the hotel could not explain either. When asked if it had happened before, they didn't reply. I didnt get any apology until i raised the same issue at check out. We weren't so upset about our things going missing, it was more about how the hotel dealt with the situation. Service at other places like the beach bar, turtle and recreation centre was good though. Just Keep all your things hidden and locked, dont have high hopes for breakfast and you should be able to have an enjoyable time!

    Fantastic stay, very luxurious. The only downside was that the Brassier was very expensive and the service and food was not worth the expense.

    Beautiful beach and clear waters. But ultimately undone by strange policy to charge for water at the beach bar, and to offer a banana boat ice cream without bananas - right outside the hotel there are shops selling combs of bananas. Not allowing external transport to enter the lobby was also strange, as if the management did not see the island-wide tourism ecosystem as partners. Given we were here on promotional rates, I would not recommend at peak prices.
