Travelers' Choice
Fronted by palm fringed, emerald seas, Tanjong Jara Resort is a sanctuary of luxury and well-being steeped in the unmistakable grace of age-old Malay traditions. Here, in the comfort of a room furnished in local timber and rich fabrics, guests are lulled by the sighs of waves and the warm tropical breeze. The award-winning architecture of this resort reflects the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces, offering an authentic taste of the region’s spirit and an enduring embodiment of gentle Malay arts and hospitality. Seamlessly integrated with the resort is the Spa Village, dedicated to combining the therapeutic properties of natural local ingredients and the innate healing practices of the area, providing a special, restorative experience. Guests can choose to experience an eco-adventure river cruise, explore teeming coral reefs or browse in a night market. Whatever the activity, every breath is pure refreshment, a relaxation of the soul, a pure journey of revival. In Malay we call this Sucimurni, in Malaysia it is Tanjong Jara Resort.

Amazing.. No words can describe how great of everything. Beautiful i'm speechless. Eventhough its monsun season, i still love the raining vibe.. We managed to swim at the pool and play with sands. My baby loves so much. It was her birthday week. Kimie entertained us by sending a cake. And next day he greeted us and wished our daughter during breakfast. He even explained on Tenggol island.. Made us wanting to go once monsun end. Chef Ann took our order during our dinner. She even suggested dish not in the menu. We had a very good conversation. I really like how 5 star hotel hired local and they maintain local accent. That is something guest would cherish, stay in surrounded village with local people. You can chat a lot especially the famous local food, tourist attraction, etc. I also very thankful to uncle who greeted us upon arrival and send our bags to the room. I can't get his name. Also, trainees students of YTL, they really shows their determination and love towards hospitality. My baby crying so hard that she don't want to leave the place. Promised her to come back again. Thank you Tanjong Jara!

Overall the resort was nice and the lady at the restaurants who takes orders is superb. Overall I really did enjoy the place because the pool's temperature is perfect, the space is huge and it's so near the beach. However.. When I checked in the staff told me that my package entitled me to 3 meals and even printed out a letter saying so. That night at the restaurant I asked 1 of the staff there about meals being included for my room and they said I just need to sign off at the end of the meal. i didn't think much of it at the time since i had the Was quite shocked and when I tried to talk to the concierge lady she said the package I booked didn't include lunch and dinner and repeatedly said 'I should know' even when i explained about the guy who checked me in and the letter (which she acknowledged happened). She refused to budge until my husband came and also explained that we wouldn't have ordered so much or ate in so much had we known and were finally given RM250 off (actually I would only have been willing to pay maybe half of the whole meal bill considering we would have eaten out half the time knowing the prices and also how we would have adjusted ordering). I wouldn't have minded if they'd told me maybe on the 2nd day of my stay they realized the intern had made a mistake then I could have adjusted for the rest of the meals (letter said coffee and tea included so we ordered that every meal and drinks are not cheap, restaurant staff said dessert and starter included in 'package') and not minded paying fully for first couple meals, but I was quite upset at the way the lady at the concierge handled the whole thing during checkout as if I was just trying to get free meals. I was looking forward to splurging on some gifts at the gift shop before leaving but felt quite fleeced after paying so much unexpectedly for food so we just left. We'd even booked the couple spa thinking we had a great deal for our stay so we could splurge a little but in the end we just felt really fleeced over the whole meal thing rather than happy. We would have been happy to pay had we known what we were really paying for but t to have to deal with that at the end suddenly and the feeling of being blamed as well as if the whole thing was our mistake and fault because 'we should know' really placed a black cloud over the end of our trip. Overall I'd say to be careful with the charges at the hotel. Some of the young staff at the hotel are really blur, a few times when we asked questions they couldn't answer or answered differently as if they didn't understand the question. The nasi dagang and laksa at breakfast are excellent. Some dishes eg. roselle prawn, mix veg stirfry, kangkung belacan, beef stirfry (whatever the lady recommends) were really good. Others so so. Nelayan had some good food as well (fish head curry, fish n chips) but the place had sooooo many flies it was really not enjoyable eating there. Resort amenities and activities are good.

TJR is just a 3 hours drive away from the hustle and bustle of KL city centre. This is our 2nd visit to the resort. The resort is spacious and even though the occupancy during our stay was high, we didn't feel like it was crowded. Very friendly staffs ensuring our stay is as comfy as possible and the food is great. Rooms are in good condition with great wi-fi. Enjoyed the peace and quiet the resort offered and will definitely return. Don't miss out on the Spa!

Went to all YTL resorts. Personally feel this is suitable for fmaily with kids. PLR is more suitable for couple. Bought this package during MCO1. 0 and unable to go due to multiple times lock down. Initially they want to charge me to change the date. But with the help of Adi from reservation centre. He allows me to change date without additional cost. Brought my family with 2 boys. Lucky enough to get anjung room with the best view and privacy (1601&1602) but it's far from facility which I don't mind at all. One thing confuse me is that the reservation centre keep telling me that their room only allow maximum 2 adults and 2 young kids but i saw some family with 2 parents and 3 kids. (I don't think they get 2rooms) Adult swimming pool is deep. 1.60M which is dangerous for short people... Spa Village : personally feel PLR pre ritual is more interesting. Overall a good trip for the price we got. Look forward to check out gaya Island resort soon

Dear Guest, Thanks for the review and for all your kind words. Obviously since the lifting of the lockdown. We were also were quite uncertain of what to expect especially the next few months ahead. However we are in the midst in looking into all the possibility of opening up more activities and also to customise some fun things to do especially for the kids with the new season next year with Lang Tengah Turtle watch team. We will be having some educational programs for kids as well. Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself in one of our best rooms, Anjong and you manage to reach out to our reservations team and had your reservations sorted. That’s Great. We will review and also forward your feedback in regards to the swimming pool and also the SPA to the respective Departments to address the matters accordingly. Overall Thank you so much for your kind support and also for the fabulous review again. We are hoping to see you again in the near future. Till then Best Wishes from all of us at Tanjong Jara Resort. Best Regards Ramesh Krishna Tanjong Jara Resort
