My wife and I stayed for two weeks at the Tanjung Rhu Resort in October 2017. The location is simply stunning and the staff are some of the friendliest and most efficient I have had the pleasure of staying with. While we were there upgrades to some areas were taking place but we didn't hear a thing and it didn't intrude on our holiday in any way. We are in all 3 restaurants and the food was consistently good to excellent. The rooms were spacious and meticulously clean - as were all areas of the hotel. WiFi in the hotel is limited to The Reading Room - which after a couple of days we found to be a big plus! Do you really want to be hanging on WiFi when holidaying in paradise? The bird life and animal life in and around the grounds is stunning. Look out for the troops of Macaques and Dusky Leaf monkeys, the large Hornbills and the scary looking Monitor Lizards to name but a few. Look up in the skies and you'll regularly see beautiful Sea Eagles and Kites soaring above you. Get out on bikes, use the gym or laze by the pool - the choice is yours; no matter what the fantastic staff will do everything to help make your stay as memorable as ours was. Enjoy! 👍

We loved our 5 nights here. It is isolated and quiet and in a beautiful area. The place is huge but many rooms are blocked off for future renovations. The 3 restaurants are good and the main (adult) pool bar great - happy hour 5.30-11pm !!! Cocktails are great value. The pools are excellent and there's lots of areas to chill in the sun or shade. We had a car which is highly recommended in order to get about the island.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and we absolutely love our entire stay. Credit goes to the hotel staffs! From the moment we were picked up by Azrin the concierge staff we were amazed with their politeness, friendliness & warm services. Once arrived the FO staff Ms Nurliyana greeted and attended to us. She explained in detail about the resorts facilities and the packages offered. We arrived to a very wet Langkawi and the first day I've plan a romantic dinner by the beach weeks ago and due to the rain we were not able to dine at the beach but the staff were thoughtful to provide an area like a pagoda with lighted candles everywhere. The F&B staff attended to us superbly. Zulfan the F&B manager greeted us and apologies for the change of venue. Thank you to Tahir who cook and served us. I admit the Romantic BBQ dinner is quite pricy above RM700 for 2 pax but the portion was huge. We were surprised with a small anniversary cake and cheese & fruits platter was sent up to our room that night too. Yes there are major renovations going on at the resort which is on the right wing but it didn't effect us at all as we didn't hear any renovation noises and all the hotel guests stayed on the other wing. Since we spent the next day out at the beach and pool we were not bothered by the effects of the closed wing due to the reno Our room was in good condition too. Nothing to comment negatively about it like some reviews I've read. Some points to note : Do take their F&B promo which is called the All Inclusive package where you get to enjoy food anytime from their menu incl drinks & mocktails. Food quality was good too. Seafood was fresh. Breakfast buffets spread was superb. We didn't bother to go out as our intentions were just to enjoy the tranquility of the amazing beach and hotel so taking the AIP promo was a good deal. Resort is more ideal for adults rather than for family. But the beach is safe for children where there are hardly waves and water is calm and clean Overall we truly enjoyed our stay because the warm hospitality given by the staff. Thank you to Zulfan whom numerous times came to chat with us asking is everything taken care off. He even recommended some drinks and food from the menu. Would definitely come back to this resort with my hubby.

If you're looking for white sand beach in Langkawi, this is the place. There are only 2 resorts in this area - Tanjung Rhu and the Four Seasons. The share the same shoreline but not too close. I would recommend this place for couple or family who would like to have a relaxing weekend. I was 6 months pregnant at that time and wanted to chill only before I give birth and it was a short travel from Singapore. We took the Daman room and it's more than enough - very generous in space. At that time, few rooms are under renovation but not operation so no noise. They have 2 pools (kids and adults only). We mostly stayed on adult pool and just ordered food and drinks from the bar. The staff are friendly. Food in the restaurant was okay not fantastic and not too bad...again it depends on your standard ;) We enjoyed our stay there and definitely will recommend to our friends.

The Tanjung Rhu Resort, Langkawi, is a beautiful property with an exquisite private beach that stretches up to 2.5Kms. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, well maintained and tastefully done. The property has a rich fauna which provides for an exciting experience for the guests. We saw a giant Komodo Dragon leisurely dragging itself around the gardens, enjoying the rains. We had never seen something like that up close and personal and it gave us such a thrill to walk along side a Komodo! There are many fun activities organized by the resort which keep the guests thoroughly entertained. We took the river safari into the Kilim Geoforest Park which was super fun and attended other cute little craft classes. There are many water sport options to choose from, and other island hopping tours that one can take. The island resort has something to offer to everyone, whether you are looking at just lazing by the pool or the beach sipping delicious cocktails or wanting to go island hopping and bird watching! The restaurants are great and the food is yum! We hogged on the most delicious lobsters and king prawns almost every night! The spa is very good too and the therapists are amazing! I highly recommend a visit to the spa here.

We stayed at this resort for three nights. The checked in was rather very smooth. It was raining at that time, in fact throughout whole duration of our stays. We rented a car and arrived at the hotel lobby drop off area but was told that car parking area was located at another place, which is actually 300m away. If we were to park at the lobby area will be considered as valet parking which needs to pay RM10 for each time. We left with no choice but to pay for it every night when back from dinner as it was far and dark from the designated parking area to lobby, especially during raining days. There is no food, convenience shop or entertainment outlets at all within 3KM from the resort. It is simply a long and quiet road on your left and right heading to the property. When night falls, it is very dark and indeed impossible to walk along the said road. As such, do not ever think of having your meals outside resort. The only choice is to spend and eat within it. The food is just ok and nothing worth to highlight. The price of food is 5 star hotel range, about RM40 for a plate of fried rice. We were lucky in the sense that our room was right at the first floor, as such we do not need to climb up because there is no lifts in the resorts for four story buildings. All rooms have a small balcony but we feel that there is no point to pay more for higher floor rooms as most of the view are blocked by the trees unless you book for direct sea facing rooms. There is no major complaints on the room iteself as it is rather new and spacious. The bed is the best ever that I have experienced before and very comfortable. Minor complaints mainly on stains in the room itself even though is newly renovated and few damages to the sanitary fittings. The main highlight in this resort is the sand bar that appears naturally during low tide. It is a must visit during the stay and walk along the sand bar that may lead to small islands in front of the resorts, if you are lucky enough to experience super low tide. The view at the beach is fantastic especially during sunset. Just rest and relax at the sun loungers, listen to the wave crashing sound on the beach, enjoy the sea breeze and bird chirping.. Nice resorts to stay for a short break. But, beware of fire ants along the beach that may bite you! Enjoy!

My partner and I spent three days here and really enjoyed the place. We had a large room on the third floor with a view over the inner courtyard with a peak of the sea. The courtyard is lovely having a small swim able beach area for the small kids and lots of lovely palms and flowers. The pools at this hotel are great and well kept. I didn't swim in the sea but some did. The restaurants are great. We ate at the sands resturant which has really delicious curries and Asian food. Great beef rendang but avoid the masala prawns which I found over cooked and greasy. The wi fi is terrible only accessible in one area by the beach and is really slow. So if you love Netflix and have lots of Facebook to work on forget this hotel. For us it was good to leave our devices alone for a few days, We went for a river cruise available at the end of the beach and really enjoyed it. 2 hours of great scenery land fun. We saw brown Eagles being feed, monkeys, bats in caves and a fish farm. It cost 300,000 ringlets we barted for a discount as its quiet and left at two o'clock. The weather was perfect after hearing about the two weeks of rain they had received we felt very lucky a reminder that this time of the year can be tricky. The sands bar is also great giving half price drinks from 5.30 until late. Try the mango dacouri and mt favourite Pino colada. My partner enjoyed the Assie Shiraz. Great friendly staff who really try to make you holiday enjoyable. Some aspects of the hotel show wear and tear so it's not the ritz, but the price reflects this.

The resort has 2 strengths - its staff are the friendliest, most upbeat crew; its sandy beach, wide and white, was offered a spectacular sunset every night I was there. Tg Rhu I was told wants to keep its surroundings peaceful and pristine so not generous with its water sports - a small sacrifice for an overall gorgeous resort with international hoteling while keeping a Malaysian identity.

We stayed at the Tanjung Rhu resort for 3 nights. It is a great place to relax offering a fantastic (quiet) pool, great private beach and fantastic rooms. Half of the resort was in renovation so this may explain the tranquility. The staff does a pretty good job and the restaurants offer good food. WiFi isn't great but at least it works, as opposed to other places we've stayed in Malaysia.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week after a trip to Australia. We spend quite some time looking through all the hotels on Langkawi before and decided that this looked like a great choice. We arrived in the morning and booked the airport shuttle for I think around 85RM or something like that. You don't have to do that as the taxis cost around the same, but it was very pleasant to have someone waiting at the airport for you with an airconditioned car and some water! The drive from the airport took around 30-45 minutes and went pretty much all over the island which gave us a good first impression. The Hotel has quite a big .. campus.. you could call it. After the First sign that said Tanjung Rhu it takes about another 5 minutes until you drive by the tennis courts and then another minute to the main entrance. To be honest, we weren't suuper impressed by the outside walls of the hotel. The walls were a bit dirty from salt water and other things I suppose and just looked a little old. A nice lady expected us right at the entrance and took us to our room. The staircase was also not necessarily what you'd expect from a 5Star Hotel but once you open the door you really get the full 5 star experience. The minibar prices were completely acceptable and they always had free water bottles in stock as well. The room was really large with a small balcony, dressing room and such a comfortable mattress even though we just booked a regular one. The only thing I can think of that was not perfect, but probably hard to control in a country with such high humidity, was the mold in the top rims of the sinks. However, the rest of the hotel was just stunning. The beach was never too full and always looked like paradise, the restaurant area was beautiful and so were both of the main pools. They also have an artisan hub where you can draw and work with wood which we really enjoyed for little money. The food was excellent and also not too expensive for a 5 star hotel.. compared to the markets etc around the island obviously expensive, but in our currency relatively cheap. The chefs table is worth seeing as it is a very nice location and you can get a lobster for 160RM but to be honest we enjoyed the Mediterranean Restaurant more as the quality was the same, it was much cheaper and the portions were bigger. Breakfast was also incredible and they had a lot of choices, nationally and internationally, including staff making fresh eggs of your choice right in front of you. This leads me to my last point.. the staff. I have never encountered such genuinely friendly people that were just happy to help you. One of the waiters literally offered to climb a tree and get a fresh coconut for us. This was what resonated most, as you just felt so welcome and appreciated and really got taken care of. Overall, a great stay and would definitely recommend.. the outside might not be the most beautiful 5* Hotel on the island but the beach and atmosphere is.
