The Taaras, Redang Island, Terengganu

‘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 our natural, yet stylish resort found on one of the most spectacular bays surrounded by one of the bluest oceans on earth.

The resorts ethos is to provide a contemporary, barefoot luxury experience with warm Asian 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 our mermaid figurehead.

The resort is managed by The Taaras Luxury Group, and was formerly known as Berjaya Redang (Beach) Resort managed by Berjaya Hotels and Resorts.

King of Fruit - Durian

The durian (pronounced /ˈdjʊriən/) is the fruit of several tree species belonging to the genus Durio and the Malvaceae family (although some taxonomists place Durio in a distinct family, Durionaceae). Widely known and revered in southeast Asia as the "King of Fruits", the durian is distinctive for its large size, unique odor, and formidable thorn-covered husk. The fruit can grow as large as 30 centimetres (12') long and 15 centimetres (6') in diameter, and it typically weighs one to three kilograms (2 to 7 lb). Its shape ranges from oblong to round, the colour of its husk green to brown, and its flesh pale yellow to red, depending on the species.

Come Discover Malacca


The historic heart of town is distinctive, with narrow one-way lanes hugged by old colonial-style shop houses built by the Dutch and British and later inhabited by wealthy Chinese and Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese) families. The buildings that stand out, however, are the bright red structures, a church and administrative buildings built by the Dutch during their rule. Just steps away are the remains of a Portuguese fort and church, and also close by you'll find English churches as well.
