Beautiful location. Beautiful rooms, we had a room with a veranda overlooking the sea. The staff were so kind, helpful and friendly. We were lucky, as the hotel wasn’t fully booked, and the pool area was so quiet. The food was excellent in the three restaurants. Would certainly go back.
Amazing rooms + scubadiving experience
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, I thought that the rooms were incredible (it is in the style of a treehouse) with a stunning bathroom. The only complaint I would have is that the water wouldn't stay hot if me and my partner would both shower. A definite highlight for me was the scubadiving. At first, I learnt the theory with Leon and I didn't enjoy the experience at all. Then Matt took over and I LOVED it. He was patient and kind when I became anxious. The subadiving did take most of the day but its SO worth it. The boat ride to the island, the fresh food that the chef made (catering to our vegetarian needs). It was so incredible. The food at the restaurants at the resort was also amazing - they make whatever you would like them too at such a high quality! Loved it.
5Rs- RElax, REjuvenate, REcharge, REconnect, REfresh
These 5Rs pretty summed up our 3-days-2-nights experience in Tanjong Jara last weekend. A surprise short trip for my spouse's belated birthday celebration, we drove 4-1/2 hours from KL and reached Tanjong Jara at 3pm. We were received with a loud gong signifying our arrival and ushered for check-in with cold towels and roselle drink. Check-in was straightforward and we were shown to our rooms. We also signed up for the promo of the day for 80-minutes traditional massage (buy one get one free). The massage started with us being ushered to one of the enclosed Spa Villas followed by a change to the sarongs, then SuciMurni Mandi Bunga and a change to dry sarongs. The traditional massage was relaxing and almost hypnotizing. We had happy hour drinks before dinner. For the resident package, we had a choice of 3-main course with rice, dessert and coffee or tea. For lunch, we had a choice of 1 main course with appertizer or dessert and breakfast was buffet. Throughout the entire 3days-2nights stay, we were fed like prince/princess. We lounge at the pool side, the cabanas, the adult pool, everywhere as the resort is huge. We managed to explore the Jara Hill with the guide and experienced the Kampong SuciMurni Lifestyle. All in all, we had a great enjoyable stay in Tanjong Jara Resort!
A beautiful resort located on a pristine, undeveloped stretch of beach. It’s the small details that set this place apart, from the gong announcing your arrival, warm welcome from the reception staff to the farewell on departure. We arranged transfers from KL, which took just under 4 hours, in executive transport with air conditioning. Our rooms were on the ground floor, Serambi, with views into the garden. Each room is extremely well appointed, with large bathrooms and walk in wardrobes. We were travelling as a group, and our rooms were all located alongside each other, which was very convenient for us. There are 2 restaurants, both offering a limited menu for evening meals. The food was delicious and chef Ann ensured that they catered for our varying tastes. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast is buffet style, and there is also a chef on site to fulfil your egg requirements. Staff are constantly topping up, so nothing runs out. Drinks are expensive, however as this area is Muslim and no alcohol allowed, everything needs to be brought in. We brought duty free from KL and purchased soft drinks in the local 7-11, opposite the night market in Dungan. Our thanks go to Chef Ann, for her amazing food and sense of humour. Qarl for arranging our trip to see the local attractions, Kelvi, for looking after us everyday by the adults pool. These are just a few names that we can remember from the great team of staff. We would recommend this resort if you want to escape to a quiet, unspoilt piece of paradise.
This hotel is great! Good service, beautifull rooms and a great swimming pool near the beach. The rooms are spacy and the bathroom is as big as the bedroom. A great place to relax after visiting the Taman Negara.
