This is a beautiful relaxing place to simply chill. We spent 4 fabulous days here at the end of a Singapore/Malaysian holiday and it was great. We chose a Bumbung sea view room – it was lovely - comfortable, spacious, typical wooden and rustic Malaysian style, with air conditioning, ceiling fan, a huge bathroom and a great view of the...

We spent 7 nights at the Tanjong Jara Hotel in july and enjoyed every minut of it. The service was fantastic, the rooms big (we were four persons in a Serambi room and had plenty of space) and the service was fabulous. We spent most of our time at the swimming pool but moved to the beach when the pool...

We chose this hotel based on some friends's raving reviews. I have to say the accommodations were beautiful and pool and activity areas very nice, but the beach was nothing to care for at all. It's remote so plan on just staying in the resort and enjoy solitude, which is perfect for that, they offer several activities during the day,...

My wife and I have been visiting the Tanjong Jara in October 2013 (sorry for my late review). After 5 years of luxury hotels in Thailand I must say: It was just a dream. Perfect and spacious room, super friendly service and nice people all around. During that time the hotel was not fully booked. We shared the wonderful and...

One of the best if you are in the East coast of Malaysia Peninsular. Good breakfast with fresh fruit juice. Hardware not is perfect condition but still OK if you compare with other hotels in the region. Make sure turn on the electric mosquito killer to ensure a good night sleep.

We really enjoyed our seven days at Tanjong Jara. The room was excellent. We stayed in a Serambi Sea View Room, it was an end room (706), so benefited from have extra windows on the side. The rooms are good value for money, large and well maintained. The service was excellent. We tended to stay by the larger pool during...

Spent 12 days at this resort. The location is wonderful and perfect for people who want to unwind and get away from it all. The location is quite isolated which suited us but little/nothing to do outside the hotel. The restaurants served great food but you are paying western prices for food and alcohol at this resort. The staff are...

We stayed here four nights and admittedly it is one of the best resorts we have been to. From the open design of the lobby with small pools with fish and turtles in it to the wonderful, extremely big rooms in wooden chalet buildings, everything has been thoroughly designed to fit into the environment and to please the guest. Our...

Love it here, just so chilled and so beautiful. We had a great time, saw turtles laying eggs and being released into the sea and had a great snorkeling trip where we saw turtles, puffer fish and reef sharks. Food was great and much improved from the last time we were here.
