Surrounded by the turquoise blue ocean, powdery white sandy beach and rainforest, Taaras Beach & Spa Resort is the crowning jewel of Pulau Redang. The resort hides away from the outside world just off the east coast of tropical Malaysia. The word ‘TAARA’ comes from the 4000-year-old Sanskrit language - meaning ‘Goddess of the sea’, ‘The star’ and ‘The apple of my eye'. Definitely an apt name for a destination for lovers!

Emerging from 11 acres of tropical wildness, Japamala Resort’s accommodations mirror the serenity of their surroundings in their design and decor. Located on Pulau Tioman, the resort prefers to call its rooms “sarangs” or nests in Malay, so you can imagine how cosy the rooms must be! Aside from its relatively rustic yet luxurious rooms, look forward to a boat excursion to Mukut Village to catch sight of Tioman Island’s iconic twin peaks, including a 45-minute trek to a breathtaking waterfall.
