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...

This is the second YTL resort we've been to. Layout - the resort is laid out along a stretch of sandy beach with family friendly rooms located closer to the family pool.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fronted by palm fringed, emerald seas, Tanjong Jara Resort is a sanctuary of luxury and well-being steeped in the unmistakable grace of age-old Malay traditions. Here, in the comfort of a room furnished in local timber and rich fabrics, guests are lulled by the sighs of waves and the warm tropical breeze. The award-winning architecture of this resort reflects the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces, offering an authentic taste of the region’s spirit and an enduring embodiment of gentle Malay arts and hospitality. Seamlessly integrated with the resort is the Spa Village, dedicated to combining the therapeutic properties of natural local ingredients and the innate healing practices of the area, providing a special, restorative experience. Guests can choose to experience an eco-adventure river cruise, explore teeming coral reefs or browse in a night market. Whatever the activity, every breath is pure refreshment, a relaxation of the soul, a pure journey of revival. In Malay we call this Sucimurni, in Malaysia it is Tanjong Jara Resort. ... more   less
