We stayed at this hotel almost 30 years ago and decided to come back again. The total atmosphere have changed completely for the better. The experience was superb and memorable from the moment we arrive to the time we checked out. The welcoming "gong" was something unforgettable. The hotel rooms and the architecture of the buildings are beautiful and "Unmistakeably... More

My family and I must have stayed in TJR for more than 10 times in the past 7 years. It appeals because of its superb architecture, well-laid out swimming pools, and excellent service (Yana is someone we have known for years now). I previously had reservations about the food quality in Nelayan, but they managed to truly impress me this... More

Tanjong Jara, since it has been taken over by YTL and fully renovated, is a marvel of a resort on the laid back east cost of Terrengganu. The place is set in an Eden like wild coastal surrounding far away from developments, cities, and human activity. The resort is well maintained but service could still be improved, in particular in... More

We visited here at the end of our 2 week holiday in Malaysia. We had 4 nights but wished it was longer! We had a Serambi Sea View Room, and it was wonderful. There was a huge bathroom, an enormous bed, a 'day bed' and a massive balcony with a table and chairs. The resort is fairly small but spread... More

Had no idea what to expect - we were looking for an easy getaway from Singapore, where we could snorkel and relax. The Resort is secluded and self contained (it may be possible to eat elsewhere, but why would you want to?). The grounds are lovely and the rooms are terrific. On arrival, the staff greeting is warm and we... More

I had a fantastic 4 night stay at Tanjong Jara with my partner and two friends. We each booked the residents' package and stayed in an Anjung room. Four nights seemed like the perfect length of time to spend at the resort, it was enough time to relax and see some of the local sights. Room - we were given... More
