This hotel is situated on a wonderful stretch of beach several miles from the nearest town and a couple of hours from the nearest large town. In some respects this is great but means that you are to some extent confined to the hotel (the nearby town is small and appears to have little to offer - it is worth... More

We really enjoyed our time at Tanjong Jara this summer! The location of our room, overlooking the bay was great! Annie's cooking at the Malaysian restaurant was brilliant and the rest of the staff were lovely. So much so that we decided to try another hotel in the group (Majestic Malacca), which was perhaps a mistake. There were a few... More

I have visited Tanjong Jara twice and the YTL hotel brand live up to my expectations. Staffs were attentive and very welcoming. Always opt for the residence package which provides all your meal throughout your stay. Food is always remarkable and delicious. Loved the Nasi Dagang for breakfast, something you shouldn't miss.
