Redang is one of the nine protected islands that make up the Redang Marine Park off the eastern coast of the Malaysian Peninsula. The island is riddled with forest and is surrounded by crystal clear waters teeming with marine life. The most popular activities on Redang are sunbathing on the white sandy beaches, swinging in the hammock underneath the palms, and floating through the azure waters. When you drag yourself away from the beaches, take the jungle path that crosses the island, keep a close eye out for the monkeys, and catch a boat back to your resort. It's just a magnificent island, from the jungle-covered hills to the white powdery sand to the crystal clear sea. It seems to be made for tourism and, fortunately, it's easy to enjoy the island as a tourist thanks to some great hotels and resorts in Redang Island. It's easy to visit Redang Island, too. Just a short boat trip from Kuala Terengganu, you can easily find yourself on the shores of this island within half a day of Kuala Lumpur. It's worth the effort!

Our choice for the best resort in Redang is the Laguna Redang Island Resort. Situated on the south end of the main beach area on the east coast of Redang, this resort on Redang Island is a bit away from it all while being still close to other places to eat and shop, so you're not stuck at the resort. The Laguna is a perfect combination of staying in a beautiful location and getting a variety of options to eat nearby. The Redang Laguna Resort runs its ferry to and from the mainland, making it easy to get here, particularly since the resort is running well, and you always feel taken care of. The resort has several high-quality amenities, including a vast pool, day spa, dive area, and gift store if you tire of the beach. There is a leisure centre where the equipment can be hired. There are pool tables and board games and plenty of tours here, too. There is a wide range of room types, including those with three or four beds, making it much easier for families. The spacious and well-presented rooms are all fitted with air conditioning, tv, tea and coffee making equipment, and a mini-fridge. There are also rooms with sea views or a view of the pool. This is a good option for a Redang holiday resort if you want a spot not completely secluded but somewhat private in a beautiful location with lots of facilities and amenities.
If you're looking for a luxury resort in Redang, you can find it at Taaras Beach & Spa Resort Redang Island. On the north coast, Taaras is located on a majestic beach with powdery white sand that is not as busy as the beaches on the east coast.

Even if you're looking for a romantic break or a family vacation, Taaras Beach Resort Redang has everything! With rooms varying from double rooms to family rooms, you can choose a cliff-top place or one by the beach.
