Tanjong Jara is an older 5* resort that has a great beach and is well laid out. I think the resort does need some attention is a few areas but the new General Manager, who started 6 months ago, looks to have this in hand. A very good place to stay now, but I suspect better in 2015. You should... More

Stayed at TJR for 4 nights in July 2014. Pick-up at the airport was prompt and brought us safely to the hotel. Check-in was easy with welcome drinks. We were taken on a little tour on our way to the room. The room was big with a very big bathroom (Serambai Sea View room). Amenities were plenty and of very... More

My wife and I stayed at Tanjong Jara resort for two weeks in April. We booked the hotel last year mainly based on the fact that the pictures looked really good and it seemed to offer very good value for money. I was a little apprehensive after checking some of the reviews before we flew out. I should not have... More

This is a good resort hotel with a good location, and good facilities. Even though the hotel is relatively large, the rooms are laid out across the resort in such a way that you never really believe there are 99 rooms there. We had a Serambai Sea View room and were lucky that ours was one of the few that... More

My husband and I chose Tanjong Jara for a part of our honeymoon and had the most incredible time. The resort is stunning, the staff and food are exceptional. We had an Anjung room, which was perfect. The views, beach and pools are amazing. We very rarely want to go back somewhere but we will 100% be returning. We were... More

I have been to many similar resorts around Asia and this one is no doubt the weakest. Check-in service was courteous but standard. Although this is a SLH member hotel, the staff looked curious when I enquired about SLH loyalty points. The room was just ok. Soundproofing was almost non-existent and we could clearly hear the contents of people's conversations... More

We stayed at the beautiful Tanjong Jara as a family of 6 adults aged 21 - 55 following a hectic 4 days in Japan. The resort is everything you need to relax and catch up with yourself again, the staff are ALL lovely without exception. Chef Anne who commands the main restaurant is quite a character, please accompany her to... More

Stayed at the Bumbung room. Room was spacious and clean. Wide selection of food during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not much activities around the island. Kayak is available for free. Snorkeling and diving at nearby Tenggol Island is chargeable. We paid for 2 dives at Tenggol. The dive team was really accomodating and nice. All gears setup by the dive... More

I recently returned from my honeymoon. We stayed at the Tanjung Jara Resort for 5D/4N. Oh how, I regret my decision to stay there. To set the scene, Tanjung Jara belongs to the YTL hospitality group, a "supposed" renowned Malaysian group famed for being classy and luxurious. I've attended prior functions organised by the group, and they are or "were"... More

My husband and I spent 10 days here in the middle of June. We came here in June 2013 for 3 days and loved it so much that we wanted to return for longer.
