This hotel is very relaxing and quiet with beautiful private beach and amazing view. We were staying there in October it was very peaceful and weather was good. Beach is very clean, water is awesome. I was staying there with my son, we both had great time, he could play in the pool and in the sea. Sea is shallow so I wasn't worried at all. Room is spacious, bathroom is big and clean. Restaurant has a good selection of food, local or western - they have you covered. Highly recommend this hotel! We will definitely stay there again.

The resort overlooking the Andaman sea with private beach and recreation facilities. Room was super beautiful with almost everything a family could enjoy. Fascinating tropical landscapes spread across the property. Swimming pool is the best, my kids enjoyed almost the whole day in rain. Staff was great and courteous all the quote from front to the back of the house. Excellent! Keep it up..

This hotel is so beautiful and relaxing. If you’re a fussy person and want a more pretentious hotel, then this isn’t for you. It’s got an adult pool with a pool bar which has the most incredible view of the private beach. I’d come back to Langkawi just to stay here again.

We stayed in a Bayu Senja suite for 3 nights. The view of the sea was amazing. The room was spacious and well-maintained. The environment was stunning, peaceful and relaxing. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The spa treatment was excellent. It was a memorable anniversary trip for us and we really appreciate the help and level of service we received during our stay.

at first was worried after reading the review from other guests but turn out this place was amazing. Private beach under the good weather. the best is their pools. chose this hotel because it's location is far from the city and its pool. didnt expect much from the breakfast buffet but it turned out well. no complaint about the food. love the nasi lemak, dim sum etc. pretty generous options. cant eat all. too many option. western, chinese, local. room service is great. they came every evening and place cookies and postcard on my bed with essential oil light up & new mineral waters. really need lotsa of waters in hot weather. comfortable bed. and of coz very spacious bathroom. they provided airport transfer and one free mocktail during my stay. staff was friendly. overall had a amazing stay here and of coz, will be back again.

We spent one night in this resort. The Pool was beautiful and the beach ist really worth to go. But :Staff speaks almost no English so it is difficult e. g. to order food. We wanted to have some lunch but the staff told us that we have to sit on the bar for lunch because of a big reservation in the restaurant, so we went to the bar. I ordered a salad as a starter but I never got it because the staff told us that en can Not eat at the bar. Our mains arrived and I asked for the salad. The staff changed every 10min. and told me that sb. else will bring it... After one hour we left... To have some food somewhere else is really difficult because it is far away.

Found it so hard to review this place as we had an incredible holiday BUT for how much they charge so much needs improving. I’ll start with the positives: Amazing private beach Adult pool beautiful Reasonable prices in sands restaurant (2 meals 2 cocktails £16) Great food and choices on the menu So quiet and peaceful, not overcrowded Incredible staff, Nido in the chefs table restaurant was absolutely fantastic Rooms fantastic, lots of space Amazing shower, robes, slippers, Pool towels huge and fluffy and however many you needed daily Breakfast was great and vast selection Handy phone in the rooms very useful to use as a hotspot when out and about Now the negatives: Fridge barely works, keeps things at room temp Air con is poor in rooms & around the hotel as it’s so hot that’s really needed not just fans Breakfast food not covered over which can be off putting As mentioned by others plates still outside morning after our room service then 24hrs later! Next night we had It again and left it inside the room only for the cleaners to move it outside the room and leave it for hours more?! Wooden slats by adult pool/ beach need replacing as becoming dangerous Way over priced excursions, book these yourself online Dinner at sands was buffet only and for 70RM pp had very limited options, we went back to order room service and after being told 40 mins, that exact time later we got a call to say one thing we ordered was unavailable?! Overall we loved it and it was worth it for us as we got an amazing deal (they way underpriced our booking, tried to cancel then ended up honouring it which was annoying but got sorted) however if we had paid full price I would have been disappointed It’s a great place to enjoy complete relaxation but still get to explore the island eg. cenang was 30 mins in a grab for a very reasonable price too Just needs a little attention and it would be perfect

BEACH DECLARED UNSAFE FOR SWIMMING - After much on-line research we chose Tanjung Rhu Resort because it was said to have some of the clearest sea water and one of only two places around the main island worth snorkelling (at low tide around the islet). What we did not read was that the resort has a flag system that tells patrons whether the beach is safe for swimming or not. For the entire week the red and purple flags remained up because it was claimed there were jellyfish stingers in the water (not box jellyfish). It was claimed that the water is checked daily but we saw no evidence of this - the no swimming flags remained up 24 hrs a day all week and may have been out semipermanently. One is reluctant to ignore the flags because we know from experience how a few stings can spoil a holiday. At the public end of the beach people were swimming and we saw no warnings of jellyfish anywhere else around the island where we did have several swims (but too mirky for snorkelling). We can understand that the resort is nervous about declaring the beach safe after the death of a swedish man in the area from jellyfish stings a few years ago - but maybe they should warn visitorsd before they book that they can swim here at their own risk as they declare it unsafe for swimming a lot of the time. Recommend you do not come here if you want to swim and snorkel in the sea - if its just a great location by all means come.

The stay was excellent overall. The staff was very good and attended to our requests immediately. A couple of things that probably need some immediate improvement would be the staff serving breakfast. It shouldn’t be the guests asking for replacements or replenishing of empty items during breakfast. Also some groups were too loud during meals shouting from table to table. Only a particular nationality were in these groups. Should be more controlled by the management in charge. Otherwise the chef was great the pools outstanding and we loved it.

I do not recommend this hotel. Poor staff service, restaurant very rude and does not make you feel welcome. There is nothing to do here except pay high rates. I should have booked Kuah or Chenang area much more friendlier staff and more things to do. I tried cancelling the remaining nights but they said it’s non refundable. I will cancel in any case even losing what I paid. Never again !!
