Lovely isolated spot let down by poor maintenance.

Pros: Great service Nice pool
Cons: Rooms and general maintenance could be improved Wifi needs an overhaul - coverage and capacity is pitiful. Maps of the walking tracks on the island
Location: Quick ferry ride to Langkawi Island and Pentai Cenang. Plenty of duty free shopping. Beautiful island, decent beach when no rubbish.
We had a great time at the Taj on Rebak Island just lounging in the pool and relaxing. The staff were fantastic - warm and friendly at all times with a good level of attentiveness without being overbearing. Our experience was let down somewhat by the condition of certain things in our room - we were in a ground level room and our balcony door did not lock. Paint was peeling noticeably in the bathroom and the air conditioner was far, far too loud for a decent night's sleep! The beach was a regular no-go zone - bits of rubbish scattered over it at times, and jellyfish washing up in the mornings. Wifi was generally woeful - 95% of the time we couldn't get a connection, and even when we did we were asked if we'd like a premium package! All that having been said, the food at Senari was superb - some of the best curry laksa I've ever eaten. The pool area is fantastic too.
