“Fantastic honeymoon”
Reviewed June 24, 2007

We have just returned from our honeymoon at Tanjung Jara. We spent a lot of time and effort researching venues (with TripAdvisor renamed 'TripKiller'!) - and were extremely pleased with our final choice. The overall impression we took away was that the entire team at Tanjong Jara enjoyed their jobs, and went out of their way to deliver a high level of customer service.

We would recommend an Anjung room - and also recommend dinner on the beach (and make sure that you're hungry before you sit down).

We were looking for a chilled place to relax, swim, tan and read, with good food and hospitality. This is exactly what we got, and we would not hesitate in recommending the resort.

We have just returned from two weeks at the Tanjong Jara. Although we enjoyed our stay, we did have a few problems initially. The staff were very helpful and resolved things to our eventual satisfaction.

The location is wonderful and the 'Malay village' concept works very well. It is a very restful environment in which to chill out, although occupancy was low, so can't say what it would be like when full.

Overall, we felt that although all the staff were very willing to resolve any issues we had, this hotel doesn't really live up to its 5 star rating. Amenities such as room service and stocked mini bar should be standard and not available only on request.

A nice holiday in nice surroundings but not, we feel, special enough for a return visit. .
