Cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is in a beautiful, unspoilt setting. The service is top notch and I loved the touches such as ice water being served all day by the pool. The rooms are stunning, with rich wooden floors and huge bathrooms. Our bill was surprisingly small too despite being a family of five. My favourite pastime...

Tanjong Jara Resort is very well maintained. Room is beautiful and clean. Toilet is big in nice layout and raised wooden floor. The resort is just besides the sea, on top of 2 poolsides. It is not crowded with 100 rooms. The hotel design is based on Malay architecture with solid wood panels and raised ground floor, give us a...

Just spent 6 days there and every single day was a delight. The resort is wonderfully laid out and the rooms, spacious, clean and well equipped (perhaps more drawer storage needed). The aspect that sets this place off is the quality of the staff and the faultless service. Three restaurants, and the food and variety excellent at each. you can...

We experienced exceptional service from Tanjong Jara. All our requests are granted and accommodated from the very start. I requested for a good sea view room during booking and we were given a free upgrade to grant our request. This shows that Tanjong Jara is willing to go great lengths in order to provide exceptional service to its guests. Tanjong...

My wife and 3 kids opted Tanjung Jara resort for a weekend family getaway holiday. It was a choice that we did not regret. The hotel staff was very courtious during our arrival.

This resort is well run and I am amazed at how hard working all the staff are. They really are a credit to management, how they always manage a smile even under the most testing conditions (hot weather, exacting guests...). The resort is well maintained and they really do try to keep those pesky mozzies at bay. Bring tons of...

Good points - an absolutely amazing location. Hotel Manager very good, was always visible around the Hotel. Staff worthy of a mention for exceptional service goes to Marlon at the Nelayan Restaurant, Rod at the Breakfast Restaurant and all the Guys around the infinity pool. Our seaview room was absolutely superb. The negative points are at the Breakfast Restaurant, the...

This hotel is an almost 30 years old hotel but very well kept and directly connected to very pleasant beach with excellent rooms, mostly with sea view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only bad news is the restaurant, nothing tasted. When Malaysia have such a good cooking and exotic spices. Here again we have an Asian hotel...
