The rooms are stellar, the food is good, the people are friendly, the beach is stunning, the pool is clean... I could go on and on about all the good things that make up TJR. I signed up for the snorkeling trip to Tenggol Island. Unfortunately, due to my own carelessness, I accidentally acquired a cut on my right arm... More

A good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located in the serene tranquil settings of a manicured garden and the open sea, it was certainly in peaceful harmony with nature. For a resort that has been around for about 30 years, I must say that it's quite well maintained- probably one of the best... More

This beach resort is the best I have been thus far, for a quiet romantic relaxing break to unwind and unknot the tensions in the body and mind. My wife and I drove in directly from Singapore, checked in and after a few days, checked-out and drove directly back to Singapore. We were there for three days and two nights... More

Stayed here for 3days 2nights just for a relaxing getaway! The resort was definitely as advertised a 5star! Service was great, rooms were nice and clean, a good choice of local and international food.. Being a Malaysian and coming to a resort that states "unmistakably Malay" it's sure lived up to its tag line..the local food and hotel landscape shows... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable 4 night stay at the resort. It has all the trappings you'd expect of a beach 5 star hotel. With it's theme of 'unmistakenly Malay' it was indeed geared to showcase the genteel, warm and rustic feel of the village Malay culture. We found the service and hospitality exceptional, staff greets you by name and... More

Seeking solitude surrounded by the sea and nature & rustic wooden architecture with 6-7 star service. That's Tanjung Jara Resort. I love the dark wood architecture everywhere. Clean lines and not at all ostentatious with too many carvings or in my words 'gedang-gedang'. Excellent interior of the rooms, airy, natural lighting with a terrace to chill. His & hers separate...

This is our 3rd visit to this amazing resort. Very friendly staff, beautiful rooms and a fantastic breakfast buffet as well as choice of food if one takes the full board. We booked a spa package for three days and were totally recharged. We also did a snorkeling trip to the nearby Pulau Tekong organized by the hotel. Very professional... More
