Restaurants & bars

At the main restaurant, Di Atas Sungei, meals are served either on the dark timber balcony which overlooks the river, or indoors. At breakfast, you can relax with a coffee and enjoy a variety of western and local delights. Dinner is a personalised experience as there is no menu – instead you will be guided by the resort’s Menu Masters who are experts in local flavours and will create a dish suited to your individual tastes. If delicious seafood is a favourite, the beautiful cuisine and magnificent view of the sea at laid-back Nelayan is a must. For evening cocktails head to the poolside Teratai Terrace. Private dining is also available in several beautiful locations around the resort with experiences such as 'Dining on the Rocks’ and a ‘Barbecue Under the Stars’.

Spa & wellness

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. The philosophy of Sucimurni emphasises purity of spirit, health, and well-being. And the award winning Spa Village Tanjong Jara is a sanctuary anchored in this ancient Malay way of life. This beautiful complex of structures, gardens and lotus ponds houses a therapy centre featuring programmes for relaxation, reinvigoration and stress relief based on traditional healing methods. These unique restorative Malay treatments have been handed down from generation to generation, ensuring their authenticity, and therapeutic value. With a history of more than a thousand years, these practices are believed to have their origins in the convergence of Malay, Arab, Indian and Chinese influences during the days of the Malacca Sultanate.
