Major concern was a lack of wine! We found it difficult to appreciate the issues with wine availability...... It's a Muslim country but Europeans like wine, not in excess but with meals etc. On our first day we had to chose 5 times from the drinks menu before finding what was in stock after frustratingly asking ' what do you...

We had 7 nights in a Seaview room without a balcony. The room was immaculate and really well designed with a very large bathroom. Shower was outstanding - roomy and again, immaculately clean. Next time we would choose to have the same room with a balcony as we kept looking enviously at the room next door. Breakfast was excellent with...

We got an amazing deal to come to this hotel with FlightCentre last September (2016) The hotel couldn't have been more perfect. The Ecoresort really epitomises the Malay culture, whilst providing an excellent location to relax in. We spent just a week here, but we were well looked after during every second. The chefs in the restaurant really make you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
