Me and my fiancée had a wonderful experience in Tanjong Jara Resort. The services and hospitality were excellent, staff were all very helpful and friendly. I would also want to highlight that the food are very outstanding and out of expectations. We went to the Nelayan restaurant for “South China Sea” private dinner and the Di Atas Sungei restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Both provided excellent quality of food and services. I strongly recommend this place for staycation.

Simply the best resort for us in the whole world even the best YTL and we have been to several.  TJR, our dream resort, we have repeatedly returned nearly 20 times.   We had issues with housekeeping but rectified by Nor, Manager.  The staff are simply amazingly wonderful.  Dolis, Chef was incredible, Maz as before was exceptional.   Mr Ong and team we are totally bowled over by the warm welcome and exceptional hospitality.  Thank you to the maintenance team who joined us for Sucimurni every morning - infusing the great ethos and team spirit. Thank you especially to Afiq (Guest Liaison) who organised several happy ABBA fun dancing  sessions involving staff, guests  Maintenance of  resort and villas must be a challenge but we are encouraged to see continued ongoing work.  We leave with  happiness and gratitude and can’t wait to be back.

WE HAD AN ISSUE WITH OUR ROOM WHEN WE ARRIVED, BUT THIS WAS QUICKLY RESOLVED. WE WERE UPGRADED TO A BEAUTIFUL SEAFRONT VILLA. ONG (ONE NICE GUY) LIVES UP TO HIS NAME. HE MAKES SURE THAT EVERYONE IS HAPPY AND GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO CHAT TO GUESTS. WE WERE LOOKED AFTER EXTREMELY WELL BY MAZ AT BREAKFAST, BABUL BY THE POOL, ZARUL THE CHEF AT NELAYAN WHO WOULD COOK US ANYTHING WE WANTED IN THE EVENING AND THE NELAYAN TEAM. FOEZAN OUR CLEANER WHO KNEW WHEN WE WENT TO BREAKFAST AND CLEANED OUR ROOM SO THAT IT WAS LOVELY AND FRESH ON OUR RETURN. WE CAN SEE THAT MAINTENANCE ISSUES BEING PUT RIGHT, SO RATE THIS RESORT 10 OUT OF 10. THIS WAS OUR 5TH VISIT AND WILL BE RETURNING NEXT YEAR. KEV AND CAROL MCLEAN

This was the 2nd visit to Tanjong Jara and just like last year we were greeted like long lost friends. I cannot praise the staff enough, from reception to the staff and chefs at both Di Atas Sungei and Nelayan restaurants, also the room service staff. Anything that needed fixing was done quickly (WiFi access, lighting). The resort was built a while ago now so you need to appreciate that it is not ultra modern but is very comfortable. There are two restaurants, two swimming pools with polite and friendly staff at both facilities. There's a great games room which is quite new. Thanks to manager Mr Ong Headley and staff and also to Mr Ramesh Krishna last years manager. Hope to be back in 2025. Eddie.

This is a spectacular location and the tired nature of the property is forgiven by the genuine and welcoming staff, the peace and serenity of the setting, and the relaxing pool next to the beach. It’s a place you don’t really need to do anything but morning work out at the gym, or a run or walk along the beach will justify your breakfast suggestion, I always find that roti canai with Dahl and curry sauce (spiced up with sambal) is THE breakfast of champions. The children (ours are 4 and 9) love the food here and the swimming pool. Great selection of western and Asian options for breakfast and down at Nalayan (family pool). Food wise you will be challenged not to overdose on calories; lunch by the pool (included in resident package) and supper at the main restaurant will guarantee the need for exercise! On Saturday afternoon participation in traditional activities, obviously accompanied by local delicacies (prawn frittata and yummy pancakes washed down with teh tarik or pandan or roselle juice). Whilst a bit “put on”, it feels very authentic and the staff are super genuine. In the evening a kampung buffet is on offer with live traditional Malay music which really adds ti the ambience. The team (Maz, Hamdan) and lots of others on the front desk and elsewhere, make sure you are well looked after. Is the property a gem of opulence and luxury? No. Is it tired and in need of investment? Yes. But it really doesn’t matter. We have also snorkelled and scuba dived at Tangol with Ken the dive master and water sports manager - he’s an excellent teacher and guide. Along with the boat crew (Haiqual, Naim and Irwan), they also make your experience out at Tanggol really worthwhile. Well worth visiting for 5 nights or so, to really wind down and chill. It’s a go to place for us and our two little ones.

This is two years running that we have stayed at Tanjong Jara Resort and we intend to make it three years in 2025. It is the most wonderful experience for so many reasons. Beautiful beach, super pool, excellent games room and gym, delicious food and plenty of wildlife and birds within the extensive gardens. But most of all, the staff and management are the friendliest, most helpful and kindest people you could ever wish to meet. Always smiling and going the extra mile to help. Any minor problems with accommodation were fixed immediately. On our arrival we were greeted like long lost friends and felt like part of a big family. We sincerely hope that we can visit again. Thank you to you all. Sue and Richard.

This was the second time we had stayed at this resort. We had such a great time last year we were determined to stay again & we weren’t disappointed.The staff are wonderful, so kind considerate & go out of their way to ensure that our holiday experience was perfect. It’s difficult to pick out anyone in particular as all the staff were lovely but I would mention Sunil who looked after our rooms.
