Great experience staying in Taaras! Little one saw the room and first word was "Awesome..."
Welcome drink was served at the lobby while waiting comfortably at the sofa for my check in. Staffs were polite and most were well trained. We were being greeted everywhere we went. Room was clean and aromatic scent can be smelled. Beach was really clean, water was claim and clear. We joined a few activities like, fishing feeding, turtle viewing, etc. Try snorkelling between the platform and the cliff, beautiful marine life can be seen! If not, go for turtle viewing, they will bring you around that area. For those who want to dive, no worries, the instructors are experienced professionals. Foods were fine for us, reasonable resort price. Jungle trekking, don't try!
As we were taking 7am ferry back, our breakfast was being packed! It's the thought that count. We really appreciated their service and enjoyed the place and activities.
For those travelling by ferry, you may want to take note of the ferry timing, 10.30am. Ticket can be purchased at Shah Bandar jetty, counter K4. Taaras's van will be waiting for your arrival at the Redang jetty.
- Air condition extremely loud. If switched off, room heats up in minutes
- Flor was obviously not cleaned.
- No bath towells in my room. After a call to the receiption nothing happens.
- The walls are like paper. You hear everything what is talked in the room near by.
- Radioclock in my room was programmed to 6:30 from a previous guest. So my night was interrupted early.
- Batteries of television remote controll empty.
I read all the other reviews complaining about the older furniture and this and that...come on, you are in paradise! It's true, the hotel might need a little paint here and there, but who cares....the staff is absolutely wonderful, extremely helpful and kind, and you are FIVE steps away from the endless beach....what else do you want? Why did you come here? Of course: For a piece of paradise!
I wish I could have stayed there for 1-2 months....it's wonderful.
Everything was great except the bathroom. There was a problem with the bathroom, its take minutes for the water to drain, maybe got something occluding the drainage system in the bathroom. So, water accumulate while I'm taking bath. However, i believe it just this room got this kind of little problem, and the hotel shall repair it as soon as possible. Overall, this hotel should be the best hotel to stay in KT.
