The resort provides stylish accommodation in a nice and peaceful surronding. The rooms are comfortable, and are all close to the private beach and the pools. The beach is superb, with good access to the warm sea, although some care has to be taken for currents. The resort has not evolved with all the technology of the last 10 yrs...

Breakfast was nice but I was let down by the variety especially given the price we pay. For foreign tourists, I think the variety of...

We were upgraded to a room with sea view at arrival in this fantastic resort on the East Coast. The room was great, but could be improved with little investment by putting in a less noisy A/C and removing the plastic cover of the balcony below which is noisy when it rains hard. Breakfast is very good and the personnell...

We were longing for a romantic, quiet and breath-taking breakaway. Since Precious Wife was pregnant with our first child, she had (and still has!) the privilege of choosing; and she chose this wonderful resort! It was one of the best trips that we made this year! Our long drive from Kuala Lumpur was made worthwhile with the warm welcome (both...

After driving for almost 5 hours from KL we finally arrived at this beautiful Malay style resort and were greeted with cool towels and refreshing drinks which was so appreciated. After a speedy registration, we were shown to our room accompanied by one of the staff who was so helpful in introducing everything to us. Our room (serembi) was located...

We had 6 nights at the resort as part of a Malaysia/Singapore winter break. Our room was a Serambi Seaview which was spacious, spotlessly clean and featured a large deck with views down the curve of the beach and out to the open ocean. The bathroom was huge and featured an enclosed toilet and a very large, very hot walk-in...

This is our 5th different hotel stay in Malaysia and i must say that it was by far the best. The level of service in Malaysian hospitality is generally very very poor but at Tanjong Jara it really was faultless throughout. Great service with an attention to detail and always with a smile. I cant praise the staff enough! The...

This is a beautiful relaxing place to simply chill. We spent 4 fabulous days here at the end of a Singapore/Malaysian holiday and it was great. We chose a Bumbung sea view room – it was lovely - comfortable, spacious, typical wooden and rustic Malaysian style, with air conditioning, ceiling fan, a huge bathroom and a great view of the...
