If you are visiting Malaysia and would like to experience a first class local tropical resort filled with local experiences, do not miss this place! We were there for our anniversary celebration and as I noted in my booking, the hotel upgraded us to a beach villa with great privacy. This surprise certainly made our trip special! The beach is...

I stayed in Tanjong Jara in September and would highly recommend it. The resort is beautiful, with two gorgeous pools and a stunning beach. The resort is kept to the highest standards and staff and service was excellent at all times. The resort also offers diving and snorkeling trips which we did and saw sea turtles and reef sharks. I...

Excellent choice of vacation. Just 2 and half hours drive from kl. Once you step inside the premise, the tiredness of driving just lifted away because of the serinity of this beautiful place. The receptionist kind of friendly with an average attitutude. You need to walk about 250m from the lobby and they dont have any tram (buggy) service. Our... More

From the start, Tanjong Jara treated us like VIPs. I had contacted them via email and they took a day or two to reply. But when they did, the reservation desk was courteous and responded to my questions and requests favorably. When we checked in, the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Letting us...

Didn't expect a 5-star resort to feel so homey, but it's thanks to the brilliant staff that that was so. They were not only well-trained and went out of their way to meet all our needs, but genuine friendliness cannot be faked, nor can pride in their Terengganu roots. Most staff come from the surrounding villages and appear to have... More

First the good stuff. Absolutely beautiful hotel, in beautiful tropical gardens and nestling on a secluded (private) beach cove on the South China Sea. The overall ambience of Tanjong Jara is hushed, tranquil paradise. There are three excellent dining options that cover Malaysian and Western cuisines. I would also recommend the Korean BBQ for a good, blow-out dinner experience. Pool... More

Tang Jong Jara is fabulous. Absolutely everything about this resort is 1st Class. The accommodation , food, service and location. The staff are so friendly and cannot do enough for you.
