Over Tanjong Jara Resort
Dit weelderige resort kijkt uit op de Zuid-Chinese zee. Bij de Teratai Pool Terrace geniet u van heerlijke traditionele gerechten als nasi goreng en er is regelmatig een 'gamelan' voorstelling. In de omgeving kunt u tijdens een riviercruise hagedissen, apen, riviertrotters, ijsvogels en zeearenden spotten. Als u hier in de periode van april tot september verblijft kunt u zelfs, als u geluk heeft, gigantische zeeschildpadden hun eieren zien leggen op het strand. In deze periode kunt u ook uitstekend duiken bij het prachtige eiland Pulau Tenggol. Om bij te komen van alle activiteiten kunt u zich heerlijk terugtrekken in de prachtige Spa Village. Ook de inwendige mens komt hier niets te kort, naast de spa vormt de keuken een van de troeven van dit resort: zeer afwisselende menu's voor fijnproevers en traditionele Maleise ingrediënten.

Verder zuidwaarts langs de oostkust ligt op 8 kilometer ten oosten van het plaatsje Dungun het geweldige Tanjong Jara Resort. Er zijn witte zandstranden langs de kust en regenwouden in de binnenlanden. Met name in de zomermaanden vormt dit resort een uitstekende uitvalsbasis.
Stayed here just 1 night on our way further north and we were so disappointed to leave. The resort is a haven of peace and relaxation. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are well maintained and spacious; our one was on the top floor (2 floors only) but I think I would choose a ground floor next time as they had a small patio where you could sit. The meals were excellent and the beach was stunning. Iâ€™ll definitely be returning on my next trip north. Thank you all for a wonderful stay.
"Relaxing luxury beach resort"
Visited Tanjong Jara for 9 nights after a short stay in KL. We were looking for a friendly, relaxing resort and TJR didn't disappoint. From the single gong sounded to recognise a new arrival to the 3 gongs to signal our departure everyone at the resort did everything they could to make our stay as memorable as possible. All of the staff were attentive and interacted with the guests without being over officious. Service was always with a smile from the iced water by the pool, drinks at the bar, waiter/waitresses in the restaurants and reception. Even the gardening staff greeted you as you wandered though the tranquil gardens shaded from the sun by palm trees. The river that flows through the resort is home to numerous monitor lizards of varying sizes that wander around the resort and sum up the natural feel of the place. Breakfast is a vast world buffet that you could spend all day in and provides flavours from all over Asia. I particularly enjoyed the sticky rice and fish wrapped in a banana leaf served with pickled cucumber and fish curry sauce. Evening meals are taken either in Di Atas where Chef Anne, in her welcoming helpful style, talks you through the various ways of cooking, serving and accompanying you favorite choice of meat/fish, each meal was full of fresh flavours and left you desperate to return. As a contrast Nelayan is a more formal restaurant but the food is equally delicious especially the catch of the day with separate thai and local Terrenganu sauces. The pools are both very relaxing places and perfect to relax and while away the day with a good book and the beach slopes down to the warm south china sea if you prefer to bob in the warm waters there. We took two snokelling trips to Tenggol Island with the resort Dive school. Once again they excelled them selves with friendly staff willing to ensure that the whole experience was enjoyable and provide informative guidance in the water to the various fish and corals on view. We saw sharks, trigger fish, "nemo", rays and many other colourful fish. Lunch was cooked at the beach by the dive scool chef and rivalled anything we had in the restaurants. One final touch that makes this place special is the kampong sucimurni lifestyle each Saturday which showcases the local culture in an informal setting in the gardens. Sample local foods, music, games, painting all put on by the staff alongside local people. A final treat is the turtle conservation being undertaken on the beach. Nests of eggs are rescued from along the coast and protected, nurtured and hatched before bing released to the sea. Each nest has 100 to 150 eggs and hatch between June and September. The conservation team are very knowledgeable and happy to spend time explaining all about their work. Nests can be sponsored for RM300/RM500 to enable the team to buy the nests from the locals and save them from being sold at the market. The conservation site can be found on the beach by the Naleyan restaurant. Overall an amazing resort that I would recommend to anyone and plan to return as soon as we can.
"The best place we have ever been"
The title says it all. From when they bang the gong signalling your arrival to the banging of the gong on your departure everything is just perfect. The staff are all smiling and very friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The staff we spoke to all said that it was a privilege to work there and that's what comes across. If you like strawberry daiquiri's then visit Rakish at the adults only poolside bar. He makes the best daiquiri's I've ever tasted. The room and verandah were spotless as was everywhere else in the resort. We upgraded to an Anjung room and it was well worth the money. We had the furthest away room in the resort so only had neighbours on one side. It was so peaceful and being able to lie in bed and look out to the sea was lovely. Our verandah with table, chairs and a cabana had steps straight onto the beach. The beach was long and clean. We has a couples massage in the spa and it was divine. I also had a pedicure which was very good. The food in the restaurants was excellent. I could go on and on about how marvellous the staff and place is but I wont. Go see for yourself!! I would not hesitate to recommend this resort and will most definitely be back.
"Very good relaxing break, but with some room for improvement"
With a few days to spare we decided on five days at Tanjong Jara where I had stayed in the mid-eighties before it was expanded and turned into a luxury resort (although excellent by the standards of the time). At the time of booking, I had advised them we would be arriving around 1pm, around two hours before the official check-in time. We were greeted warmly on arrival but were then advised the room was not ready. Considering a very large group had checked out that morning (check-out is an early11am), it was surprising they were not able to have a couple of rooms ready for the few people (there was one more couple in the same position) who arrived slightly early. Although our host was charming, this was disappointing. At 2.40pm we were advised our room was ready ahead of time. Wow, 10 minutes early by the time we arrived at the room! The room is more like a suite, beautifully furnished in traditional Malay style and dÃ©cor. Overall, the room is lovely although I would have preferred a bigger sitting area instead of the day bed. The bed is huge and comfortable, wifi was good, and the flat screen TV is more than ok for catching up with the news etc. There is quite a lot of wasted space, especially in the dressing area. There is a hanging rail, but no shelves for clothes although there is plenty of room for this. There is some shelving in the area where the minibar is located but that is mostly occupied by some artifacts, trays with snack items for sale, and the kettle for making tea or coffee - not ideal for storing clothes that cannot be hung. We used the shelves in the bathroom either side of the handwash basins after moving some of the decorations, again not so good. There is also a serious lack of drawers to store some small personal items. Lighting is fine. The bathroom area is very spacious with two wash basins, and separate toilet and shower room. Nice toiletries are supplied, but there is actually no shaver point in the bathroom! The staff spread a number of mats around the bathtub, entrance to the shower (and the bed), these were actually quite dangerous as they were slippery on the beautifully highly polished but thus hazardous floor - again, a nice idea not thought through. Our ground floor room had a huge terrace furnished with a dining table and chairs - and a lot of empty space that would benefit from a lounger or two. Finally, a word of warning: if you are on the ground floor you can be seriously disturbed by people walking on the wooden floor of the first floor room. One night we were kept awake by the occupants constantly walking about until 3am. The grounds are huge, well kept green spaces, two pools, and a long beach although the sea is often a bit too rough for swimming. We used the smaller adults only pool one afternoon, and had it to ourselves. The large beachside pool at the Nelayan restaurant is quite a stunner, and staff are attentive with pool towels, cold water etc. Unfortunately, neither of the pools have a jaccuzzi. Neither of the restaurants were that great, especially if you are vegetarian - I will review them separately. F&B is pricey. The breakfast buffet at Di Atas Sungei was good,but not a patch on the one at the sister hotel Pangkor Laut. The staff are mostly lovely, helpful, friendly and professional - and always with a big smile. The resort is in a fairly remote location with nothing within walking distance, and there is not that much to do apart from relaxing, so for us four nights was just the right length of stay.
"Tenggol Island - A Dreamy Snorkelling Experience"
I came with my husband Tanjong Jara, the same place we spent our perfectly beautiful honeymoon over 2 years ago. Suffice to say, everything is still absolutely amazing about it to a point that we have decided that this will now be a yearly trip. The last time we came, the monsoon has yet to end and we couldnâ€™t make the trip to the much talked about Tenggol Island. We did this time, excited to see its acclaimed beauty. We booked a snorkelling session, despite the fact that both of us canâ€™t swim. We thought, why not, we would try to enjoy what we can. What we did not expect was that it would be a dreamy trip of a lifetime. By the grace of the power beyond us we were blessed when our snorkelling guide decided to pay an extra special attention to us. He was patient, gracious, experienced and above all extremely kind. He gently explained the basics of snorkelling and did not make us feel bad for a second that we would probably need more help than the others, in case we panic or drowned :p But what was really amazing was when he decided to let BOTH of us to tag along with him, by holding onto him while he expertly manoeuvre us along the sea - from the boat to the shallower end to almost the open sea and back to the boat, allowing us to explore the amazing world under the sea further than we ever could. Mr. Jokobus Hilberts (PADI: 401175) is a real gem. And we definitely owe this indescribable incredible experience to his big whale heart. We hope more people will have the chance to meet this wonderful wonderful man, and we wish him the best of future full of abundance :)
