My husband and I stayed here in April for his birthday weekend and we truly had a great time. The hospitality we received are 5-star and happy to see good service in our own country. The hotel staff even surprised my husband with a birthday song and cake! Being locals, we find the food at the hotel quite expensive. Other... More

This was our penultimate hotel before ending our drive through Malaysia at Kuantan. We were greeted by one gong as we drove up to reception and check-in. The staff were amazing offering us a cold towel and a wonderful ice-cold refreshing drink. We were then taken to our room and were amazed at the spacious ultra-clean areas. The bed was... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel from the 14th September to the 24th im room 712. We have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful 5 star hotel.

We went there for a family get away good service and pleasant staff . But the hotel needs a facelift Apparently they r going to refurbish the hotel and make it a six star hotel. Manager is very capable and with his background he can turn things around. The beach is not so great for swiming but very relaxing

It is not worth the time to travel all the way to this resort. With taxis and a flight, we arrived shortly after noon and it was disappointing to note that there was no one there to welcome us. We also spend a considerable amount of time waiting at the reception area before we were attended by one of the... More

The Tanjong Jara (not to be confused with Tanjung Jara) is a truly excellent hotel / resort on the edge of the South China Sea. We had a Serambi Seaview Room which was extremely well appointed with a large balcony (terrace) overlooking the beach and sea about 50 m away. The beach is beautiful with fine swimming. The staff was... More
