"The Taaras is a bespoke private beach residence, tucked away and hidden from the outside world"

Located on a small island found just off the unspoilet east coast of tropical Malaysia, Redang is considered to be one of the most beautiful island locations in the South China Sea.

This natural yet stylish resort sits on one of the most spectacular bays surrounded by one of the bluest oceans on earth. The resort's ethos is to provide a contemporary, barefoot luxury experience complete with warm Asian hospitality. 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', all represented and epitomised by the hotel's mermaid figurehead.

Accommodation comes in the form of 183 stylish suites and rooms, as well as a stunning five bedroom Private Villas 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 veranda 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, the resort's 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 pool, personal fitness room and both interior and exterior lounge decks.


A Resort Host or Leisure Concierge will be on hand to organise your day, from 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 of the island or to learn to dive with an energetic dive instructor. Back on land; a massage and rejuvenating treatment to soothe the soul and calm the mind before a dinner accompanied by chilled-out beach music.
