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

We spent 3 nights here with a toddler in tow, and were very happy with our stay overall. The room was very comfortable, and the times we called housekeeping they responded with a smile (even if it sometimes took them a while). Breakfast - all the local stuff was good e.g. roti jala, roti canai, coconut pancakes, nasi dagang, with... More

True to its tagline, Tanjong Jara Resort is unmistakably Malay. As part of the YTL chain, it offers a slightly different experience from their other resorts. For those flying in, opt to fly into Kuala Terengganu airport then grab an airport taxi to the resort - the journey takes about 1hr 15min & the fare is about RM110 one way.... More

We visited Tanjong Jara for our honeymoon and it was absolutely incredible. Throughout our entire stay we had impeccable service and the food was incredible. There are two different restaurants - the first is Malaysian and every time we visited Chef Anne helped us try something new and we were never disappointed. The other restaurant is more western and August... More

This is the first time we have stayed here and it will definitely not be the last. The rooms at the hotel are spacious and tastefully decorated and the staff courteous and helpful. We suspect that there was something amiss with our booking as there was quite a lot of busy activity at the front desk and when we were... More

perfect getaway for those who want to get away from the hustle bustle of the city. eerything was perfect including their food. Very satisfying service provided by the staff as we arrived earlier than the usual check in time, but the staffs were kind enough to check in earlier for us without any extra charges!

Stayed here for a week in a Bumbung Seaview room at the end of the season. What a place - great facilities, amazing beach, nice restaurants, and very friendly and helpful staff. Perfect place to relax and recharge. Resort being refurbished shortly. Would definitely stay again.
