Coral Redang Island Resort
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Pulau Redang

Reviewed 14 September 2017

Booked seaview room - got a room at back of property next to construction site - noisy all day every day. Many rooms closer to the beach appeared vacant. Third bed provided was a folding bed at full cost.
Food - recycled from lunch to dinner - eg tomato chicken became different chicken dish at dinner. Only 2-3 fruits served at each meal & always ran out. Egg station only does fried or scrambled egg! No fresh fruit juice provided - 2 juices served at breakfast only were canned juice.
Awful soap on tap in bathrooms/shower. Only 2 mugs/glasses & 2 bottles of water per day provided even though booking made for 3 people. Staff were very willing & able but obviously have not been given any training in service.
Ferry transfer to island was a shambles having to carry our own luggage from taxi to ferry terminal - long walk. Do not recommend for anyone over 50.
Turtle Snorkel - extra charge: these turtles are being harassed every single day. The snorkel guide from other hotels called the turtles by using some sort of whistle & hand fed squid so that tourists could touch, push & handle turtle. These turtles appeared to be disorientated by the crowds of snorkelers & bumped into us several times trying to swim away from big groups of snorkelers. There were about more than 50 people in a small area of water at one time with about 6 turtles. Poor turtles - they will soon die out if treated in this manner - Something Must be Done!

Room Tip: Request water view in writing and confirmation in writing. Request proper bed for every guest. Refus...

We spent a couple of days in this hotel and it was outstanding in every sense. The hospitality of staff, the cleaniness and comfort of rooms, the quality of restaurant. It's right at the white sandy beach where you can find sun beds and beach umbrellas as well. They also offer snorkeling trips two times a day, included in the price of the package. The whole complex was renovated recently and they are also building a new part at the moment. It might not be the cheapest resort but it's worth the price. We would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are fine with partial sea or pool view

This place is beautiful, nice clean resort and perfect beach. We have suggested for our two friends to pick up Open Water Dive Course, insisted on picking Rina as Instructor. She is the BEST Instructor we have met, very thorough very patient and gives more than 100%. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rina!! My buddy and I are going back for Advanced and will only go with her, we were very impressed with her teaching.

The resort is looks relatively new and not expensive compared to the other older (and popular?) resort in the area.

Nice swimming pool although I hardly go to there ... why be in the pool when the sea is just a few steps away.

In Easter I reviewed this resort, commenting on the availability of drinking water.
I believe this issue has been resolved by management, allowing the waiters to top up the refillable water bottles of guests during meal times.
This is important so we can cut down the consumption of plastic bottles by visitors to Redang, with the aim of a more sustainable tourism.
Diving was even better this time, compared to our trip in Easter, we saw a lot more things. Some other groups dived with a playful young whale shark.
Highly recommend Coral Redang and the dive center for diving and snorkeling for young families.
