The Taaras Resort, Redang Island


The Taaras Beach and Spa Resort is Berjaya Group’s most prized possession. The name Taaras came from a Sanskrit language meaning “Goddess of the sea”, “the Star”, and “The Apple of My Eye”. It is definitely the star of Redang Island.

The enchanted resort bestows a contemporary barefoot luxury experience with warm Asian hospitality that creates a magical experience for those who seek it. We welcome you to one of the most beautiful islands in Malaysia and having nature at its best, it is surrounded by one of the most spectacular seas in Asia. Indulge yourself in mother nature’s most natural creations; the powdery white sandy beaches, it’s crystal-clear waters and tropical rainforest.

The Taaras itself is a vision of paradise. No matter which part of the resort you choose to stay in, it will give you visual pleasures, be it overlooking the ocean waters, or gorgeous landscapes of the garden, or the scenic steep cliffs of the island. With 184 rooms and suites in various layouts, there is a perfect option for everyone. Even though everything about Taraas screams luxury, the ultimate in luxury and opulence is its Taaras Villa, with its dedicated butler service, gorgeous cliff-side location, and impressive 16m-infinity pool overlooking the bay.

The Taaras has also its own private beach with a breathtaking view. Be warned though that in such an idyllic setting, you may not want to do anything except laze around on the beach or perhaps take a dip in the beautiful ocean in between that. Knowing the thrill-seekers though, they will want to partake in both water and land activities such as diving, snorkeling, island hopping, kayaking, jungle trekking, and beach volleyball, to name a few.

The resort has one of the best diving spots with a 5-star PADI Dive Resort & Instructor Development Centre. The Redang Island is blessed with crystal clear waters and is home to a vast number of amazing marine lives making it a wonderful place to go diving. With warm sea water and a large variety of marine life, it is a perfect place to toss off the stress from work and enjoy the experience in the underwater world, the world that harbors many white coral reefs, sharks, turtles, stingray, stonefish, blue crabs and much more.
