Great place to relax and although price is a little steep, the tranquility and peace makes up for the prices But don't know when the renovation going to complete for the other wing Food is good and staff is friendly too, maybe place needs a little touch up though

it was an amazing experinces i ever had in my life,from KL to Kuala Kedah.its took 12 hours to reach the destination,Tanjung Rhu Resort. the place wasn't disapponted us. It was a wonderful stayed for 3 days 2 night. the staff was friendly and helpful. new year celebration party was happening and everybody enjoyed their dance and drink. people was awesome with their dress and masks. i hope to see you again Tanjung Rhu Resort for the next event! keep the positive vibe and always be the top!

The setting is wonderful - in a beautiful bay on a big sandy beach overlooking some small islands with Thailand on the horizon. The pool areas (3 different pools, one for adults only) are beautiful and all of the staff members are so polite and nice, and really seemed to love children. The food was amazing, escpecially at the Chef’s table - to have this kind of fine dining included in an ’all inclusive package’ is just extraordinary! Our room, Cahaya suite, was really spacious (actually 3 rooms, a large bathroom and a walk-in closet) and could easily have fitted 2 adults, 4 children and an infant. The room standard was good but there were some stains on the sofas and some marks on the walls that need to be fixed. So, what improvements are needed? There is a big on-going (but at the moment paused) renovation of the hotel. Only 56 out of approx. 130 rooms are being used and it looks a bit like a ghost town looking at the blown out rooms. There is no kids club (because the house it used to be in is half torn down...) Some staff members said the renovation has been on pause for 4 years now so there are probably some serious issues with funding, papers etc. Another issue that became somewhat of a problem is that the service is very slow; we could not have a 3-course dinner in less than 4 hours (with 2 young children and a baby). It was also an issue that not all of the staff understood English. And finally the wi-fi: there is only wi-fi in the ’Reading room’ and it is very poor...

Don’t go here. It’s only meant for my family. 😍. I can’t describe this Plc. Every time I go here it feels good. Service is excellent. Beach flawless. Only issue.... fix ur windsurfers! Already!!!! My kids love doing activities......

Stay 1 night here as we were told that Tanjung Rhu has the best beach in Langkawi. Was not disappointed as the hospitality extended to us was beyond words. Once arrived at 1130am, the room has been assigned and was brought to our room. We were given a 5min introduction of the resort. The view from our room was breadth taking. The room was huge and comes with a separate living room. It was on level 3 and there are no elevators. Although renovations were on going, it was not obvious. There are no WiFi connection except at the Reading Room. All staffs were very friendly and greet you whenever you ran into them. Highly recommended if you want a quiet and restful holiday.

We visited with my husband late October. The resort has this unique atmosphere of total chill out, relaxation, tranquility with old style sense of luxury. It's not your typical holiday resort, there's no loud organized activities for kids, no annoying silly games etc. The location of the hotel is just extraordinary, beach is outstanding, very long stretch of white sand, very private (closed for non hotel guests), the view is breathtaking. First morning we were bit disappointed cause it was very trashed, but hotel stuff cleaned it in no time. Well, we can only blame the mankind for ocean pollution....there was no sand flies on the beach, they do regular fuming. hotel buildings and facilities are a bit outdated, but in a very classy, old elegant style. Yes, some parts of the hotel are under renovation, but there was not a single sound from the construction, it also didn't bother the sight, we actually barely noticed it. There's no element of the hotel made out of plastic, everything is crafted from wood. Hotel room is huge, has separate eating/office/entrance/lounge areas. Bed comfy, everyday chocolates on the pillow. cleaning service immaculate, big bathtub and bath salts making it nice for relaxation after long day on the beach. In the hotel gardens a lot of different birds and big lizards sunbathing in the morning sun. There's 2 swimming pools, one adult only, which is a great idea. Adult pool is located directly on the beach, facing the sea. 50 m long, with slightly heated water. Enough of sun lounges, never too crowded. Pool bar serving delicious cocktails, happy hour from 17 as far as I remember. The pool with kids acces is also good but we didn't spend that much time there. Breakfast is good. There's 3 restaurants for a dinner, one gourmet chefs table, one medittareanian called saffron directly by the pool and one Asian. We tried all of them, weren't disappointed once. They can also arrange romantic private barbecue on the beach under the lovely gazebo, though it's pretty pricy. We rented kayaks couple of times, the hotel rental is on the beach. There's no loud water sports. Hotel is very secluded, beware of it, but we liked it being very tranquil. Also on the beach there is no bars, shops etc, but again, that's what we liked the most. We went couple of time to cenang beach and hated being there for more then 2 hours for noise and crowds. We rented a car for a week so we travelled around the island. The hotel can arrange some activities, for example the mangrove tour which was very interesting. And last, the real cherry on top, the staff and quality of service. Tanjung. Rhu staff made our stay just unforgettable. The quality of service is exceptional, nowadays you rarely meet this kind of service anymore. We would like to thank especially saffron restaurant and pool bar staff-Majid, Azhar, Zulfan, Jayadi, Arwan- thanks guys, you were the best! All in all, we loved the hotel and we will definitely come back.

I stayed here for 2 days with a friend. This hotel was old and dated. They are in the process of renovating it, but it feels like you step into the 70s and early 90s at certain points. The food was a star at this resort. The breakfast had plenty of asian and western options. The fancy dinner options (either Italian or Mediterranean) were great. The staff was lovely. The poolside bar was a fun spot to hide out when it was pouring outside due to bad weather. When the weather gets bad, there are no real options in the resort - as everything pretty much closes down. There is no wifi on the property except for the clubhouse - which is kind of annoying because you can't get wifi near the pool, on the other side of the resort, or in your room. The room was fine - I paid for an upgrade. Honestly, not worth the money. The beach looks heavenly from the photos, but the sand is not fine- it is rather rocky. The views are great, if it is not raining during your trip. I've stayed at a few places in Langkawi. I would go back to those, but not to this one. Too outdated and out there - nothing really nearby so you are pretty much stuck at the hotel.

I have spent in total 5 days at the Tanjung Resort with my mum. We loved everything about this resort! The beach, the pool, the food, the rooms and especially the nice people! The manager Mr. Fazli, Anas as well Amir were just lovely! Mr. fazli and his crew were so helpful and really helped us with everything (organizing trips, organizing a room for fresh-up before our departure, organizing the nicest room for us)! We would definitely recommend the Tanjung Rhu Resort for everyone traveling to Langkawi and wanting to spend peaceful, relaxing luxurious holidays! The people and the facilities are just brilliant!

Me and my fiancée stayed here for a week and had a fantastic break. Staff were incredibly polite and all amenities were brilliant. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing for a quiet holiday in an iddillic setting.

My husband and I have recently returned for what was to be a 7 night escape to Langkawi. We loved Tanjung Rhu so much we extended to an extra 2 nights! Dont be put off by "the renovations". There doesnt seem to have been much building in a while and as they are renovating some of the rooms, the number of guests at the resort has been reduced - no fighting for sun lounges around the pool! This is not a large resort to begin with, so at reduce occupancy, it is even more intimate. That said, the resort is located at the quiet end of Langkawi (where the best beach is) so if you are looking for nightlife and evening entertainment, this probably isnt the resort for you. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, with a selection of pillows to match your preferred sleep - soft, medium and hard. The "adults only" pool is calm and relaxing, with the beach vista sensational! I rarely saw people on the beach, making you feel like you had the place to yourself. The staff could not do enough to make your stay enjoyable. I mentioned that I would have loved a they should offer cooking lessons so as to learn how to make their fabulous Malaysian curries. The next day, a private class was arrange for my husband and I!! $4 AUD cocktails from 5:30pm (not watered down either) were an added bonus. We will definitely be back to this little paradise and for those wanting a relaxing, great value for money holiday, I cannot recommend Tanjung Rhu highly enough.
