‘The Taaras’ is a bespoke Private Beach Residence, tucked away and hidden from the outside world on a small Island found just off the unspoilt East Coast of tropical Malaysia. Considered to be one of the most beautiful island locations in the South China Sea, the Isle of Redang is home to the natural, yet stylish resort – Taaras. The resorts ethos is to provide a contemporary, barefoot luxury experience with warm hospitality, remembered with a smile long into the future. The name of the property is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Taara’, meaning ‘Star or Apple of my eye’ as well as ‘Goddess of the Sea’ which are all represented and epitomised by the mermaid figurehead.
The stylish suites and rooms overlook the ocean and resort below and boast locally commissioned furnishings and bespoke photography of Redang Island and the landscapes of Malaysia. Each suite or room features oversized beds and hand-picked linens and fabrics. Most rooms and all suites have larger washrooms containing both bath tub and separate rain or monsoon shower (some with spa bathtubs looking out over the rainforest or the bay). Most residences have an outdoor balcony or veranda and suites at the top of the cliff summit have spectacular views over the beach and ocean below. For clients who prefer or require further privacy ‘The Cliff Private Villa Bay & Sea View’, the private five bedroom residence perched high up on the cliff more than meets the requirements; private access, a Villa Host at your ‘beck and call’ as well as twenty four hour security; should it be a necessary requirement. The resort also enjoys a lagoon style swimming pool. Catch some rays on The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort’s private beach, pamper yourself at the full-service spa or enjoy snorkelling in the crystal clear waters.
