Plan to transform Rebak Island into unique retreat

Rebak Island Resort, on a 158ha private island off Langkawi, is planning to enhance the island to attract more guests.

The resort, 75 per cent-owned by DRB-HICOM Bhd's unit Hicom Indungan Sdn Bhd, is looking at developing private beaches for guests and opening a wellness spa.

Rebak Island Resort, in which Langkawi Development Authority and Mofaz have a 19 per cent and 6 per cent stake respectively, is managed by Indian luxury hotel chain Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces.

General manager Mahesh S. Aiyer said these plans are likely to be completed in the next two to three years.

"Rebak is a unique private island. In sync with the positioning of a private island, we need to extract the potential of the island," he said during an interview with Business Times.

For a start, it plans to open an additional restaurant serving Asean and Japanese cuisine.

It is also looking at a yoga retreat and a restaurant serving organic food.

Subsequently, it may also develop two private beaches and set up a spa complex aimed at capturing not only guests from its resorts but also tourists from the main island.

Rebak Island, he said, will be transformed into a rejuvenation spot where unique activities can be conducted such as a cooking holiday and for photography enthusiasts.
