Rebak Island Resort (Vivanta Resort)

Indulge that private island fantasy

What we say: 3.5 stars

Rebak Island Resort sprawls across most of privately owned Pulau Rebak, offering a diverse array of higher-end rooms and seaside suites set amid tropical, well-manicured grounds that provide a creature comfort-filled retreat from the madding crowds for individual travellers through to families.

Next best thing to being there is the speed ferry panoramic shot.

Pulau Rebak is one of the Langkawi archipelago’s 99 islands, located four kilometres from the “mainland” landfall of Port Langkasuka in Kuala Muda. Kuala Muda itself is a stone’s throw away from Langkawi’s international airport or 10 minutes by car from Pantai Cenang to the south and Telaga Harbour to the north.

This upscale island 'hut' will do quite nicely, thank you.

The suites have dark wood furnishings and polished wooden floors with subtle tropical coloured interiors. They are simple yet tastefully arranged for maximum use of space. Generously sized beds face doors that open to a private balcony and a view of the Senari Straits in the Andaman Sea. Bathrooms are somewhat compact, but include an adjacent tub room with, you guessed it, a nice deep bathtub. A well stocked minibar, flat screen TV, WiFi and that view of the sea make Rebak Island Resort a definite winner for those with a bit more cash to flash. Standard suites are priced at 550 ringgit in low season, and jump to 800 ringgit during the high season — they come as four separate sea-view suites housed under one roof and are liberally spaced to allow plenty of breathing room.

The standard bed fit for a king (or queen).

The resort’s private beach boasts a line of shade trees and a vast stretch of golden sand worthy of some serious beach time. Plenty of fauna and flora will entice nature lovers who can do some self guided exploring or take advantage of the on-site nature guide available to guests.

A private island means a beach to call your own!

Prefer to chill out poolside? Two pools are available. One is especially designated for children, while the adult pool comes complete with a well-stocked pool bar that you can cosy up to mermaid or merman style. An on-site spa and restaurant is open to non-guests, making a day trip here for lunch an option — ferry service to and from the island begin at 07:15 and run to 19:45 daily (equally if you’re staying here, it’s easy to get away to the mainland).

Must be happy hour somewhere in the world.

Although Rebak Island Resort is quite romantic and picturesque, they welcome families with young children by not only offering a separate pool, but also a kids’ club full of activities.

In addition to the resort the island is home to a popular marina with a dry dock and boat repair area, so plenty of cruising sailors mill about, perhaps willing to share their tales of the sea and the surrounding islands.

You can scratch 'moondeck' dining off your bucket list too.

Rebak Island Resort is transitioning to the name Vivanta Resort, part of the Taj group. They have been a part of the Earthcheck programme for sustainable tourism since 2011, and there are further plans for an organic garden and solar panels to be installed, as well as a natural water filtration system.
