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

Dear Mister Zung, Thank you for taking the time to write to us in regards to your stay at Tanjong Jara resort in February 2014.

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. We could not fault the resort, everything was perfect and the staff were so kind, friendly and helpful. I cannot understand the negative reviews I have... More

Just returned from a week at the Tanjong Jara Resort in East Malaysia. Despite being advertised as 5 star I'd say it was a long way from achieving that standard. When we checked in the front desk team couldn't open the door to the villa - we then ended up going in via the back door. I was surprised that... More

Having read all the reviews repeatedly, we decided to extend our stay by two nights prior to going. Therefore, I may sound very critical (purely cos I had uber high expectations). We arrived around 10pm and the staff seemed to know who we were before we even mentioned our names. They gave us a drink, cold towel and suggested we... More

Drove from Singapore to Dungun - 480km, via Mersing and Kuantan, took us about 7 hours. The drive was worth it as we had an exclusive and completely relaxed vacation at TJR. We loved the beach, it was private, quiet, clean, and we just lazed there for hours enjoying the sun and the breeze. The staffs were attentive by serving/refilling... More

Beautiful grounds, great staff and natural surroundings! Tanjong Jara is a beautiful resort that is influenced by Malay and Balinese decor. It is situated in a remote area in Dungun, Terrengganu. What I like about TJR is that I did not have to jostle with the crowds unlike in Bali. I did not try the diving in Teggol but I... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights here following an intensive 10 days touring round Malaysia. For us, therefore, it was pretty much the perfect location as we wanted no more than to relax completely in a quiet and very comfortable environment with top quality food and service. Tanjong Jara delivered well on all these fronts. Highlights for us were:... More
