Fantastic serene beach Malay kampong style resort with world class service, run by the same company which owns Pangkor Laut. Simply the best resort on the east coast of West Malaysia. I've done Langkawi and Phuket, this is somehow even better, less commercial. Being there is being in another world. Rooms are beautifully done up in traditional style, suitable for... More

We stayed at Tanjong Jara for seven nights in early April and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s an ideal place to go if you’re looking to switch off from the world and relax. Stayed in a Serambi room with a huge bathroom and all the amenities. Staff are friendly and welcoming and at the pool side very attentive, constantly brining iced... More

Was there over the Good Friday weekend of 2008. The resort was a pleasant experience though there wasn't really much to do beyond what the resort offered. The beach was fantastic. Loved the lounge sofas (yes sofas!) that were scattered all around the property - perfect way to laze around.

Very nice hotel with beautiful food and beach. The only complaint I would have is that it is quite far from the city of Terenganu (the capital of the state) and it is quite expensive to get the hotel transport down there. Having said that, the resort is so nice, you may not wish to! The resort also has a... More

Overpriced for a 5-star in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia. Overall there is nothing really to complain about: Staff is super friendly and well trained, beaches are gorgeous, food is excellent as long as one knows what Malaysian/Indian/Chinese cuisine is all about. Nonetheless if one unemotionally compares the rate with the Shangri-la in Penang or the Renaissance and Marriott in Kuala Lumpur,... More

It was a perfect getaway. The resort is beautiful and importantly quiet. I love resorts and have been to many. While you often get screaming kids running aroung, you hardly even see adult running around even during the full house days. you wake up in the morning to the sound of waves, and bird chirping. you can laze by the...

This is a very nice and quiet 5 star resort on the east coast of peninsula Malaysia. I decided to book a few nights at this hotel to enjoy a few quiet days on the less densely populated east coast. The hotel is about 70 km south of Kuala Terengganu near the small town Dungun. One would be rather surprise... More

We stayed for give nights in early January 2008, in one of the Tanjong rooms (ground floor). The rooms each have their own entrance, and are very traditional Malay style. A reasonable size bedroom with an enormous bathroom. Our room was just 10 or 15 metres from the sea, and the sound of waves breaking was the 'background music' to... More

Just perfect! All I can say about this resort is not enough. The staff is really just fantastic, really polite and always ready to help you and to attend our wishes. The resort is well located, with a great beach and, if you like to dive, don't miss the diving (or snorkeling) trip to Tengol Island. We did some of... More

We stayed for 5 nights at Tanjong Jara in November 2007 and loved the place! Having stayed at the excellent Pangkor Laut a couple of years back, we didn't think TJ could measure up to it, but it did ! The resort is about an hours drive from Kuala Terengganu airport and the private transfer from the hotel was in... More
