We've been planning to go to Malaysia for a long time, but did not want to visit any of the commercial overcrowded places. Redang became and obvious choice due to its location and also that it was a part of the marine park.

The staff at Redang bay resort are extremely helpful. Shing Ng made sure our rooms were ready by the time we arrived. The rooms were absolutely clean. We stayed for 4N/5D and were given complimentary trips to the marine park and Turtle watching. The staff at the dive school are absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable.

We wanted to go for a trek as well but unfortunately it was closed due to rains before our arrival.

Few things the resort could do better:
They do not accept cards and insist on complete payment by cash before boarding the ferry. This can be a put off.

The choice for vegetarians is extremely limited. My wife had a very difficult time as she is a vegetarian. The kitchen staff did their best to accommodate her, but still it could've been better.

Some great things:

Staff always cheerful and ready to help.
Rooms very clean
The reef opposite the hotel absolutely breathtaking
The dive school staff very particular about safety of guests
The swimming pool was kept clean
The resort was nature friendly

All in all a beautiful resort and a lovely island. A must visit and a hidden gem of Malaysia.

Went for my diving course for 4D3N in April 2019. The place did some minor upgrade and renovation, the best among it's would be the better connection of WiFi around the place. Stayed there 2 years ago and the WiFi was bad. Room is very spacious and clean but it seems like you just can't get rid of those sands in your room . There's room of improvement for food. The thing i like the most about Redang Bay Resort and the reason I will come back to it will be the coral reef that's just right in front of the resort and it's the only one around the island.

Room tip: Stay away from dorm rooms if you're a light sleeper as the house bar is just below it.

A budget-friendly resort with direct access to the beach like many of the other resorts on the island.

A bunch of friends and I (6 people) only had a weekend to spare and Redang Bay resort was the only one that was willing to modify the 3D2N package to 2D1N. The staff handling their communications(both in Facebook and on call) was very approachable and helpful. They do offer pick up and drop off from/to the Shahbandar Jetty for a price included in the package. But the timings are fixed. Pick up is at 9 AM and drop off at 11 AM the next day- which means we had just about 26 hours in the island. They offer a free Snorkeling trip with the package - we only pay for the rental of the snorkeling gear which is 25RM/head. Snorkeling was fun. The dive centre at the resort also offers Scuba diving. Since, we weren't certified, we had to settle for a shore dive that cost us 190 RM/head. We got to see a lot of underwater life and everyone in the group was happy with the experience. The crew had our backs, literally, and were very helpful and ensured we had a wonderful Scuba experience.

They do have a volleyball court by the beach - you can get a volleyball for a nominal deposit. We had a blast playing it with great views and cool weather and fellow tourists - several of the other vacationers joined in!

The dorm rooms were clean, had Aircon. Towels/body-wash were provided. The WiFi was available but none of us got the chance to use it - so, can't comment on the service. The toilets weren't western style and it seemed like they had just 4 showers for about 20+ people. The resort wasn't crowded so we didn't have to wait but do consider it when visiting during a busy period.

The live entertainment in the evening, the bar, cafe within the premises, the food that came with the package - all ensured we had a relaxed, fun-filled day. There's a souvenir shop too. They don't have lockers in the dorms but they let you store your valuables at lockers with their receptionists.

Sure, the facilities could have been better but for the price we paid,I would definitely recommend this one.

I went for a 3D2N trip in July 2018. The room is in good condition and quite spacious. The only setback is that at night you can hear the sound from live band, some people might need affected by it, but for me it is still tolerable. Services offered are good and the staffs are generally friendly.
Food is reasonable for the price we paid. You can do snorkeling just outside the resort but the coral there are just average.
