Struggled with whether to rate this place 4 stars or 5 - but this resort's service and impeccable hospitality was what tipped this place over to 5 stars for both my wife and myself. The resort is in one of the more secluded locales of Malaysia - about an hour and a half's drive from the main airports of either... More

My husband and I stayed at Tanjong Jara for our third wedding anniversary. We loved every minute of our stay here and can't wait to go back again. The staff learned our names and were always quick to share a 'hello' or a helping hand. Chef Ann was terrific and uses only topnotch-fresh ingredients. She went out of her way... More

spectacular dive spots around tengkol island, and the resort has its own dive master- richard and its own crew. Dive trips are filled up quickly so good to book before getting t resort, at same time as booking the room, so as not to miss out!!! The resort is clean and luxurious with ever pleasing staff and a relaxing spa.

Good relaxing holiday to just rest and relax. Turtle watching is a must do if it is in season and you have not done it before. Wondered if we should have done the Discovery Scuba instead of just snorkeling. But overall was a good experience. Wished the room can have sofa seating area for reading etc, the day bed can...
