We stayed at the Tangong Jara for five days during our recent holiday to Malaysia. The resort is beautiful, amenities are fantastic and the staff excellent. Good choice of restaurants and for an evening meal the setting and quality of the food at the Nelayan was first class. Tanjong Jara has many good reviews and deservedly so. Perfect if you...

My last review on this amazing resort is on 19th June 2016 and I would say most of the basic facilities remains as great as my first experience here. It's monsoon season during my second visit on Thaipusam holidays weekend and I thought that the weather would be quite unpleasant but surprisingly throughout my three-days stay, it's sunny in the...

My wife and I took advantage of me needing to be in the Kemaman area for business to stay at Tanjong Jara Resort. We traveled by car from KL to Tanjong Jara in about 5 hours without issue. The staff greeted us with a gong and a smile. The entire staff was helpful and very pleasant. Perhaps one of the...

We have just returned from a 3 week Holiday in Malaysia. We stayed at the Tangong Jara for a week from the 28th January 2017. We have been to a number of Luxury hotels but our experience here was the best that we have had. All the staff made us feel very welcome and made our stay magical and everything...

When I first heard from my daughter, that she’s giving me a birthday treat at Tanjong Jara for 3 nights, I was a bit skeptical. First, the weather got me worried. There was this incessant rain and flooding at the East coast. Second, we would be flying on board an ATR to Kuala Terengganu! Once we arrived at the Resort,...

Among the elite hotel in Malaysia, but i do expect more due the higher room rate. The buffet breakfast spread is considered as average compared with the other 5 star hotels. Compliment should be given on the green surrounding and room deco. Maybe to include some chocolate for the turndown service. Overall is below my expectation.

I had my birthday and Chinese New Year in Tanjong. The staff had arranged everything in order. All i had to do is just sit back and relax. They even prepare a birthday cake without my knowledge and decorate my bed with a cute elephant on my bed. How sweet are they.

It never fails to amaze... the east coast of Malaysia with a diverse and beautiful landscape, rustic and immanently worth ditching the delights of KL for. There is little else surrounding this estate but palm trees, jungle, so our sense of seclusion runs deep. Gorgeous is a word to describe this super-chilled acreage where the mood reflected bygone sultan palaces...
