After a few years since our last visit, we thought it was a good idea to revisit this resort and hopefully things have improved significantly. Our arrival was greeted promptly and we were ushered to the lobby for check in process. From there we were escorted to our room. A request to change our room was warmly accommodated. Good start....

The resort facilities were incredible, but what made this stand out is the hospitality and service. Staff remember you by name, what you like or dislike and could not do enough to please. It is a little isolated from main town, some 1 1/2 hr drive, but if you looking for total relaxation and most pleasurable experience, don't go anywhere... More

Such a gorgeous and relaxing place. We stayed at a seaview Serambi room which is on the ground floor. Fantastic views of the ocean. It was only for 2 nites but we were right there on the beach ever day, at the cabana, watching the sun rise. Staff were friendly and very helpful without being "in your face". We only... More

It was initially a 3D2N honeymoon plan, yet we decided to extend another night just because of the extremely excellent experience. Arrived at TJR late in the afternoon, pretty amazed on how they welcomed the guest, by the sound of ‘gong’. Checked in and walked to the room by the super helpful and friendly staff. We stayed at Anjung, facing... More
