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.

I wanted a quiet get away. Lovely spa and excellent masseurs. Staff that so courteous and smiling all the time. Lovely set up. Facilities in the room was excellent. Sad part no free wifi. Poor on array of food. My view point unmistakably Malay should not be restricted to food as you have guests from around the world so have...

We have been to a few other YTL properties and the experience was always amazing. However this place was just disappointing. We went in Nov 2013 for our 12th wedding anniversary. Our room wasn't ready when we checked in, but that was just a minor issue. We received an upgrade for one of the meals due to this, which was...

Tanjong Jara is an older 5* resort that has a great beach and is well laid out. I think the resort does need some attention is a few areas but the new General Manager, who started 6 months ago, looks to have this in hand. A very good place to stay now, but I suspect better in 2015. You should...

Stayed at TJR for 4 nights in July 2014. Pick-up at the airport was prompt and brought us safely to the hotel. Check-in was easy with welcome drinks. We were taken on a little tour on our way to the room. The room was big with a very big bathroom (Serambai Sea View room). Amenities were plenty and of very...
