A super relaxing holiday
As a family of 4 we just spent 12 fantastic days to celebrate the New Year at Tanjong Jara Resort. Despite the monsoon season and therefore a few rainy days, we enjoyed ourselves very much thanks to the comfort of the hotel rooms and the serene property surroundings. The private beach of the resort is welcoming for people who are looking for a peaceful environment. On top of those positive points is the excellent service of the entire hotel staff, ranging from the hotel manager Ramesh, Room manager Jazz, Terrence and very cheerful Kimie from the front desk. We would like to especially thank chefs Ann and Dolis for their succulent and delicious dishes. This amazing duo prepared customised lunch and dinner for us. Apart from the awesome food, we were well taken care of by the other staff members May and Hamdan. We will definitely come back.
Relaxing beach holiday
The resort itself is lovely. The rooms are big enough to fit a family of 3 or 4. The kids had a lot of fun at the pool (there is a kids pool and 2 adult pools) and beach (but be careful as the sea is quite rough, and it was also jellyfish season when we went). They have a turtle conservation centre at the beach which is educational for both kids and adults alike. We were there on the residents’ package where we had also added on for the kids. The chef was very friendly and dropped by several times to recommend dishes for us during mealtimes. However, we felt that at times the staff could have been more proactive in serving us and less reluctant in providing us with our food (despite our specific requests), especially when it came to the kids’ portion.
Amazing gem in the East Coast
Spent 3D/2N at this amazing resort in December. Though it was monsoon season, we were blessed with amazing weather. The pool was gorgeous, the beach immaculate and nicely peaceful since it is a private beach. To sit and listen to the waves is pure bliss. This review is not complete without mention of the best feature which is the people here. The service level here is of the highest standard and most importantly genuine. Ramesh the GM of the hotel was there every morning and night to be with us making sure our needs were fulfilled. Chef Ann was there in her cheerful self making delicious local food recommendations. When there, be adventurous and try the local food. They've made them all slightly less spicy here so everyone can enjoy but the curries here are still very fragrant as they only reduced the spice level.
A wonderful experience family experience
We spent 3 nights in the resort and had a wonderful time. Even though it was a monsoon season, we managed to spend half the day outdoor enjoying the facilities and the beautiful scenery. My kids love the beach and the pool. They are clean and family friendly. The hotel staff are genuinely nice, warm and friendly. They remind me of the Malaysian hospitality that we rarely experience as locals. The food was excellent and the restaurant staff and chefs were kind enough to accommodate to our daughter’s food needs. They are attentive too our 2 year old while she roams freely around the restaurant. My kids love the fish feeding time after breakfast, as well. For me, after 9 months being at home, this is an awesome experience especially for me and my young children, who are in need to experience the beach sand and the interaction with nature. Ironically, because of the monsoon season; we are able to strike a balance between spending time outdoors and as well as enjoying the stay in our exceptionally pretty and spacious suite. We will definitely be back, regardless of the season! Many thanks again to the TJR staff for having us. Please do keep up the good work.
Will definitely return after monsoon season!
I did not book in advance and was lucky to have a 2 days staycation following to a last minute cancelation. Liza (customer service rep) was extremely accommodating and understanding in assisting all details. Despite monsoon season, I managed to watch moon and stars one of the nights. I enjoyed watching high tide while sitting at the shore, great experience connecting to the south china sea. Will definitely return after monsoon season for recreational and sports activities!
