The last time we went to the Tanjong Jara Resort was about 15 years ago but amazingly, the place is so well maintained that it is still the same quintessentially Malay luxury Haven in 2017. If anything has changed, it has been for the better! On our Chinese New Year visit back to Kelantan, whilst on the road, at whim...

We arrived on the 26/1 for 3 nights (to include Chinese New Year) & had booked the Serambi Sea Views room. It has wow factor straight away. The comfortable bed, day bed & wonderful bathroom is perfect. All...

We were there during the recent CNY break. And it was in the midst of the raging tropical monsoon season of rain and floods at other nearby states in Malaysia. I was personally concerned that we made a bad decision on the timing of our break but everything turned out fine. Apart from cooling rain one early evening and another...

Wonderful resort with beautiful scenery and beach. Accommodation was very comfortable. The Residence Package was indeed a bonus since it included all meals. Although it was January the sun shone and it rained only one night during our 3 day stay. There were some hiccups with the service due to the many interns that were holding the fort during this...

I visited during January 2017 so the resort was quiet however this suited perfectly. There were only a couple of rain showers and the rest of the time it was sunny! The rooms had great facilities and all the staff were so kind and very attentive. Food was delicious and there was a wide selection across the three restaurants. What...

Pros:- the Malay concept was pitched very well from architecture, spa (which began with refreshing mandi bunga) activities for the day, furniture, menu at di atas sungai, ambiance and little touches (loved that the dinnerware for breakfast buffet were laid out in a teak cupboard). Service was generally good and what we hope from a 5 star-staff asked if we...
