As others have said, the service and attention from the staff in Tanjong Jara is the best I've seen, however, some needed further training in terms of sophistication. This resort by YTL hotel chain is the most pleasant and relaxing- quiet- resort I've experienced yet. I totally chilled out here for 4 days just laying under the sun surrounded by...

My wife and I had loved this resort on our first visit in November 2013. We decided to return but inevitably were concerned in case it didn't live up to our high expectations. I am pleased to report that the resort is even better, which is saying something. The facilities have been further improved, there are additional dining options and...

Incredibly, even on our 14th visit we were outdone by fellow well travelled guests who have lost count of their visits! The team go out of the way to make all guests feel...

We've stayed here since last Monday, checking out today, 8 days later. Having been to Pangkor Laut, the sister resort we thought we'd try here. Very different but still nice. The room was very clean, food was good. Would have been nice if there was another restaurant or two. Outside he resort there's nothing to see, so if you plan...

My travel mate located to Asia few years ago and first Time I heard she was impressed of the service especially when the waiter got her Singapore Sling right before the food. Kathy, Desmond and the guy at the main swimming pool is doing a good job. A quite place for short weekend getaway away from KL!

This property is exceptional and the staff are all lovely, friendly, professional and helpful. We loved this facility. Everything works! The beach is spectacular albeit red flag the entire time we were there but amazing surf to watch. Food and alcohol are quite pricey so be prepared. This is a remote location so you are isolated when you are here.
