My husband and I personally emailed the general manager to tell him directly just what an amazing place this is and of course how it contributed to probably one of the best times of our lives.
We got married in Scotland in August and spent our honeymoon in Malaysia. For 9 days we stayed at Tanjong Jara Resort (TJR).
First of all, we have stayed at many 5* resorts or hotels in our time BUT TJR blows all other places out of the water. Everywhere else is 3* compared to TJR.
Not only is it utterly beautiful and well tended. It is perfect for couples as it's incredibly romantic and the service is amazing. It is really geared for couples and luckily we went during a season where there were no families and no children.
The food is michelin star-esque at both the main restuarants, we had 5* gourmet meals on the beach served by incredible people, massages and treatments and romantic walks and we even did the Mandi Bunga ceremony to celebrate our marriage. I cried.
We had a tree planting ceremony too and again all the staff were amazing with making us feel like we were centre of the universe! (it doesn't happen very often ;P)
We also went jungle trekking with the EPIC Captain Mok, who is probably one of the most seasoned and interesting person you'll ever meet, scaled waterfalls, and even went on a traditional tour of the local areas. Zul took us on a water cruise and visited local villages and we saw monkeys, monitor lizards etc. Was amazing!
Also, despite the weather being a bit stormy and therefore the bike ride being cancelled, he took us out anyways and we ended up going for roti canai in the local fishing village.
Above all, we had a guest liaison called Caroline, who was the most perfect guest liaison you could ask for. Nothing was too big or too small. Everything was done perfectly. She made sure we had the best honeymoon anyone could wish for and guess what? - we did.
When we left, Caroline even came in on her day off to say goodbye, which was very sweet of her. It's because of staff like her, our experience was just any old holiday, it was something we'll cherish forever.
Thank you, thank you, thank you again. See you VERY soon!
