Wow, what an experience from start to finish. Staff wore exceptional from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. Personally words cannot describe it. The room was as expected, the staff wore extremely helpful and welcoming especially as this was a surprise birthday treat to my wife. The resort is definitely heaven on earth.

Living in England this isn't the easiest place to get to. It's a 45 minute flight from Kuala Lumpur, and then approx. 75/90 minutes taxi ride to the resort. But when you arrive it is unquestionably worth the effort. The resort itself is huge , about 17 hectares, so it's possible to do a decent walk without ever leaving the...

WOW! What a find. Well worth the effort of getting there - 22 hours from Sydney, Aust. Malaysia Airlines flights from UK and Australian have very long layovers in Kuala Lumpur before the connecting 1 hour flight to Kuala Terengganu, followed by a 75-90 minute drive south to the resort. Try AirAsia for the KL to KT leg. On arrival...

First impression of Kuala Terengganu - clean, roads well maintained and not overcrowded. Journey to the resort from the airport took approximately 90 minutes and cost RM110. Don't book transportation through any hotel as their average prices are around RM400. After exiting customs head straight for the taxi counter (spelt kaunter). Tell them your destination (fixed price) they will hand...

We recently spent five glorious days at the fabulous Tanjong Jara Resort and came away impressed by most everything about it.

It was impressive right from the start. Upon disembarking the bus, waiters came to serve cold towels, which was immediately followed by a cold drink and a snack.
