We had a fantastic time here...we loved the overall site, the size of the bedroom and bathroom, the range of excursions available, that there were 2 separate pools (and that the adult only pool was nice and quiet), the great views from the beach, all the trees which provided plenty of shade and of course the very friendly staff.

Tanjong Jara is a fantastic place to just chill and relax. The very spacious room was on the ground floor and had a view of the beach. We had a king size bed as well as a day bed, with a dressing area and large bathroom with separate bath and shower. I liked that they even provided bath salts! There... More

A beautiful, tastefully decorated and designed resort with top-class service. The layout is smart and thoughtful (2 different pools for kids/adults) with well-maintained grounds. The setting is idyllic and enhanced by the quality of the staff and service levels. Food was a bit pricey but of a very high standard. Many tours and attractions are offered which seek to emphasise... More

Nice resort. For food - ask the reception for a map. We tried a few Chinese restaurants around here - the food is excellent. Not pricey. We went snorkelling at Pulau Tenggol about 40mins away by boat. We arranged with the dive center (run by Javier and friends) located just beside the kids' pool at the resort. That was fun.

My wife and I spent 4 days here to finish off our trip around Malaysia and Borneo and found it was an amazing place. I relaxed by the pool and drank tasty cocktails while my wife went scuba diving and batik painting (just a couple of the activities available to guests). We both took part in a Malaysian cooking class... More

Resort is heavenly, keeps us coming back. It always has a rustic feel, the sun, the beach, the sea......the rocks for spot fishing! The hotel staff deserves commendations, very calm, polite and attentive. You won't be disappointed.
