Looking for a restful, high standard hotel in a magnificent scenery, and excellent service ? Search no more ! The hotel has aged nicely, the rooms are spacious and nicely appointed ; the grounds and pools are gorgeous and the beach is wide and nice with a magnificent view. But what makes this hotel truly special is the level of attention provided by its extremely hospitality oriented staff ! Everyone is dedicated to provide the best possible service and service is beyond expectations. I highly recommend this hotel !

I stayed here with friends this past May 2017. We spent about 3 days straight, lounging about on the property - there are many options to go into Langkawi for tourist attractions but we opted out. The resort is very peaceful, and I especially liked the beautiful adults-only pool with some nice views of the ocean and hills, there seemed to be plenty of spaces for kids to play too near the beach. The service was great, absolutely no complaints and it was clear the staff went out of their way to chat and our room was spotless. The rooms are very large and I loved the huge, classy bathrooms. We stayed in a non-beach view room and absolutely no complaints there, it was nice to lounge on the balcony with some privacy and the whole day had beach views. There were tons of food options, and every dish I had was delicious, you'll never tire of the breakfast buffet as they constantly rotate about 4 different types of cuisine, the Malaysian sweet treats were a nice touch. The beach is very private with a great setup of lounge chairs, although we weren't able to swim due to red flags - don't expect crystal clear waters or snorkeling, this is simply not langkawi, but the beauty of the beach is still unrivaled. The sand stretch at sunset was one of the most breathtaking views I've ever seen. There is halted construction, as others note, but it didn't interfere and there is absolutely no noise or semblance of workers, really it just makes the property an even better value since the prices are lower. Overall, a wonderful serene spot that introduced us to a luxe resort life. Airport transfer also flawless with great service, more expensive than a taxi by only a couple of dollars and well worth the pampering.

This resort prides itself being a 5-star hotel, and no matter how nice it is, it does not deserve a 5-star at the moment. It is not difficult to see what it has been, but also not difficult to see what is missing. For instance the renovation. Well actually no work is going on, so there's no renovation noise. Which is nice - even though we all know there has to be maintenance going on at every hotel. The problem here is more that the renovation is not progressing at all leaving the resort to crumble. By the looks of it, it's been like this for a while. The beach and the surroundings are amazing! So is the staff, pools and the courtyard. The rooms are very spacious, but needs the finish to make it a 5-star experience. Not enough towels for the 4 of us in the family room, only 2 washcloths on day 1, none on the other days. Chocolate on the bed every night, but again: not for all. We really enjoyed staying here, but mainly because we had a good deal on the price, otherwise we would have been disappointed. This is the reason for my rating, it is very nice, but not a 5-star experience.

Trying to visit the hotel for a lunch (we are not the hotel guest). Was denied to enter by the guard at the road side, stated all lunch place was fully book, which is impossible. We dress properly. But probably we are driving a rented not expensive looking car, thus they may thought we are not able to pay for the bill. They need to learn from four season next door on how to accept all guest. Terrible experience.

Booked three days stay with them through the agent CANCEL-ON. They seemed to be reasonably priced and looked good from the description on their website. BE AWARE there is CONSTRUCTION on the site. Even tho there is no noise, for those who have allergies to dust, mold, and so on this might be not the best place to stay. I had to leave to another hotel as couldn't breath in the room. Very disappointed, also because hotel claimed that they notified agent about the construction but agent said that they didn't. Not sure whom to believe, but they told me that the renovation is not new, it is half a year old, and there is nothing on their advertisement about renovation...

Beautiful hotel on a huge, stunning white sandy beach! The setting is fantastic, with low rise buildings around beautifully kept gardens and pools. We particularly loved the lagoon pool, which was incredibly tranquil. The sunset pool was also fabulous, giving the infinity view out to the sea. Large choice of dining options on our all inclusive basis. Every offering in every restaurant was fantastic and plentiful. The drinks menus are also excellent, with a large choice of beers, spirits and cocktails. Nowhere ever felt busy and crowded and the most "noise" came from the evening entertainment on some nights, in the form of singers and small musical groups, which only added to the atmosphere. Our room was huge, sumptuous and very comfortable and the bathroom was something to behold, with the biggest bath I have ever soaked in! The staff were all incredibly helpful, friendly and courteous. We booked a sunset meal for two on the beach, which was pretty special. We were served by our own waitresses, under a gazebo. The only issue were the crabs scuttling around under our feet! However, this did not spoil what was a fantastic night. A true luxury hotel in a stunning location! Amazing!

The people/staff are incredible. So friendly warm and welcoming. Every time we saw a staff member they would greet us and made us feel special. The young man in the restaurant from Lombok Indonesia, he was fantastic, I wish I remembered his name as he remembered ours. The service was second to none!! I had a SIM card for Malaysia so I had no problems with the internet whatsoever. It amazes me to see guests criticising the hotel for no wifi doing a review when it is mentioned so many times. Just have your own SIM and you will have no problems. Not too many English TV channels, but you probably won't be watching too much TV, the hotel is too nice to spend too much time in your room. We had a lovely living room and two balconies (we were on the first floor), one to the garden and the other overlooking the magnificent Andaman sea out to Thailand. Brilliant. We didn't need a higher room for the great view. OK so the rooms are getting a little worn, with fraying and stained couches and slightly marked furniture. That didn't really matter to me that much. There are water dragons wandering around, no monkeys unless you play tennis. If you take your own car the car park is down the road. We just walked there and back, but for valet service it costs. I think if you are here more than a few days then a car is kind of necessary. On the way to the resort, the road that leads there is a roundabout. If you come by taxi you might want to get the taxi to stop at the supermarket there to stock up on drinks and snacks. It will be a saving exercise. For example juice in the supermarket was 1.70RM, in the hotel mini bar 12RM. The beach unfortunately was closed the entire time we were there, but we could walk on the sand bar. There were no box jellyfish but they said it was an undertow issue. Honestly I have never seen such a quiet still sea, so I am a little confused about the undertow which I have only ever seen with surf/waves. Shame as the water was like bathwater. Down the road you can swim (near the fish and chip shop). The pools were beautiful. Just gorgeous. The resort had plenty of space for everyone. That was the good thing about part of it being closed off. If all the rooms were open and taken it would be a lot more crowded and noisy. We had no hot water one day. The hotel seems to like to put notes under the door of the room which is fine, but we survived the no hot water fine. We took the longer mangrove trip from the hotel which I thoroughly recommend. We were the only ones that day and it was absolutely fantastic. We saw crabs making their little man(or rather crab)holes to hide in, monkeys galore, eagles, kites, bats....was absolutely beautiful..oh yes and the fish farm too !!! Loved it. Was so sad to leave here. We stayed in Cenang the night before we left, what a mistake and it was more expensive. We should have stayed here instead and gone to Cenang for the day. You live and learn. So yes I thoroughly recommend this wonderful hotel for some peace and quiet, away from it all in very comfortable surroundings with delightful people and beautiful gardens.

Spent a very relaxing week at the resort. Beautiful location, staff were lovely and so helpful. Even though the hotel was at full capacity it still felt like it was there just for us.!Having a separate adult pool was most acceptable Food and service were excellent, plenty of choice and delicious. The different eating options, the restaurants, pool bars and room service provided plenty of flexibility depending on your itinerary and mood. The only aspect that perhaps could do with updating was the room, whilst very well appointed, comfortable and clean, a little outdated. Great bathroom! Lovely and unique welcome on arrival with the check in process undertaken in you room so no standing at reception to check in. Situated in a beautiful private bay with lovely tropical island view and spectacular sunsets. Plenty of activities for the more energetic guests at the resort and across the island. The sky bridge and cable car well worth a visit.

A beautiful place to rest and relax be it with your family, friends or all by yourself. This resort has the best beach in Langkawi. Crystal clear blue and green waters that calms one mind and soul. The only beach that never bores me even after many visits. Welcomed by local malay staffs who was very genuinely friendly. Food quality acceptable but surrounding areas with ample restaurants to enjoy local delicacies, a temptation for food lovers like me. Rooms are well maintained. Very comfortable

We just came back 2 weeks back from Langkawi. We choose to see both the luxury and the local culture of this place. So we stayed in a mid range hotel for the first 3 days and the last 2 days we stayed in Tanjung Rhu Resort .I must tell you it 2 days or pure bliss. Coming from a place like India which is so well known for hospitality, I must say I did not get very good vibes about how malaysians deal with their guests. But that opinion was changed right at the moment i stepped inside Tanjung Rhu resort. It is a very beautiful resort surrounded by 2 perfect entities -Green and Water. We were welcomed quite well . The staff were too courtetous.We had booked Chia suites Due to some unavailability we were given free upgrade to the superior ones (I don't remember the suite name) . They had this cold orange drink to beat the heat of malaysia . During the booking we had mentioned to them that we will be on our honeymoon, but they had separate charges to make it more memorable to our honeymoon. Since the prices were quite high, we did not opt for it, But when we checked in they remembered that we were on our honeymoon and they had placed cute little cheese cake with the message "congragulations" on it. The rooms were very spacious. We had 2 balaconies, 1 which open to the garden and the other one which gives you a sneak peak to the beach. There was this beautiful bathroom with a very spacious bathtub which has a window that opens to your room. Oh Ya !! The bath salts kept ready so that you can soak yourself up for hours . The Private beach was very clean . This beach is pretty unique as it has a kind of pathway from the shore to the beach which makes you feel the beach is divided in two as you can see in the pictures, which luckily appeared the day we went and it was filled the next day . The Breakfast buffet was too good with a wide variety. I did have a little problem though as i was a vegeterian. Still i was able to enjoy the pancakes and croissant :) . The pool side bar has these happy hours from 5 PM to 11 PM. You just go there in the night after your dinner and drink to your fullest. Did not get to stay long to enjoy the swimming pool . But the swimming pool just looked the way it is shown in the resort's website. Had a great great time. It is definitely a must visit place
