The other reviewers have said it all really - this is a really special place. We had the "cheapest" courtyard view room, but really it was like a suite with a balcony overlooking the palm-tree filled central area. Very spacious, comfy bed, good air con, very quiet. The rooms are apparently being refurbished in a few months, but really these...

From the moment we arrived to the time we reluctantly left we were so impressed with this resort. Not only is the setting beautiful, the beach, the scenery and surroundings but the staff were amazing. With 1 rare exception, all staff were smiling and seemed genuinely happy to be serving us. All were very helpful and seemed aware of any...

My wife and I stayed at Tanjung Rhu resort for ten days in August 2007 as part of our honeymoon. I booked it at the last minute- about six weeks before the wedding- so it was with a little trepidation that we arrived there. No need, it's a fantastic resort. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. When booking in,...

My Wife and I have just returned from 12 nights at the Tanjung Rhu. From the moment we were greeted at the airport and whisked away by complementary shuttle you start to get an idea of the level of service you'll be treated to during your stay. The first thing to mention has to be the beach. The sight of...

My notes could be: simply one of the best resort I ever seen... Quality of the rooms: excellent. Staff takes care always of all of guests and is so kind. Restaurants, based on several cousines, are at top level for food and quality. Swimming pools are spectaculars: my favourite was the big near the sea, where you can admire the...

We stayed at Tanjung Rhu for our honeymoon in December. We booked the Anjung room with a garden view as that was all they had left at the time of booking. When we checked in, we were surprised to see that we had been given a sea view. It was a nice surprise. The room is so big. We had...

The words that come to mind when thinking about the Tanjung Rhu are peaceful, serene, relaxing and soothing. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but every time I go there (we’re just back from our 4th visit) I spend all my time feeling happy and relaxed. It could be the stunningly beautiful location, or the staff who can’t...

We spent 10 nights at the Tanjung Rhu over Christmas. The location is stunning – white sand beach; a view you could never tire of; clean warm sea; about as close to paradise as it gets! Yes, the rooms are a little “tired” but the management are well aware that the hotel needs some TLC and a rolling refurbishment programme...

Another Christmas/New Year another visit to the TRR and truly a visit to paradise. From the moment we arrived until the moment of departure we were treated as treasured guests and we will definately be returning for the 2009/10 festivities.
