This place was absolutely phenomenal. Had a 2 night stay for my honeymoon there, and 30 minutes after arriving I extended our stay before they overbooked. We were welcomed by the traditional gong, cold towels, and fruit juice refreshments. A lovely concierge hosted us to our room and showed us around. It is by far one of the nicest places... More

I cant speak highly enough of the Tanjong Jara resort. We spent 8 days of our honeymoon there and what an experience it was. The staff, scenery, beach, food and service is of the highest quality.

Stayed for a week as part of our two week holiday in Malaysia. Really lovely resort. We stayed just before the local holidays started, so quite quiet (I believe about 40% occupancy). So loads of space by the pools or beach. But lots of space and beds so I think would be good even 100% occupied The resort is really... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience. It's not better or worse than Pangkor Laut just different. If you're looking for great food then definitely we much preferred the food at Pangkor Laut. The food at Tanjung Jara left much to be desired. If you're looking for easy access to the beach then we definitely... More
