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.

"A Pleasant Returning"
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 morning and windy in the evening. Arriving unexpectedly early at 1:45pm, I'm welcomed by the usual friendly staffs and the familiar traditional "gong". Checking in is efficiently fast and knowing that I'm returning guest, one of the young Chinese lady staff directs me to my room without briefing much but we chat a lot. According to her, rainy season is heavy during November and December, that's reason the resort is closed around that time. She also advises that weather is quite comfy thanks to the wind but it is encouraged not to proceed any water activities due to strong waves. Prior to my arrival, I have communicated with the hotel manager, Terence about my requests, though not something that's very important, he has meticulously arranged everything for me. Staying in Bumbung, the biggest surprise about my room is the balcony which I love it so much and I spend my time to enjoy the breeze with wine overlooking the sea. There's also welcoming dessert placed in my room that taste nice for a sweet evening. One thing that I would like to stress about is the lighting of the room, it's much brighter compared to my first trip but it's still a little bit dark at night. This however does not affect my overall stay anyway. The bed, sofa and bath are as extremely comfy as my first stay while the room is still well equipped with the lovely local traditional handcrafted baskets and items. Not much of people around especially foreigners compared to June last year as the staffs tell me that it is not summer/ winter break. Thanks to the assigned location of my room, it's quite quiet but I love the tranquility as this is the main reason why I choose here again for short vacation. Pool and gym are well maintained while the beach, shades and trees/ plants are kept clean which one may feel very close to mother nature when walking around the resort. As for breakfast, everything looks decent as usual but I opt to go out hunting for local popular food this time as lunch and dinner. Other than the daily activities and spa provided, you may do some online research for local tourist attractions and cuisine prior which are conveniently reached as long as you have Waze. The next day, I make a call to the reception looking for housekeeping before going out for dinner. Just when I lock the door, it's a coincidence that there's a housekeeper next door who acts fast informing she will come to tidy up in a short while. This indeed leave an impression that how well is the communication between different managements. In addition to that, while it's not considered something big, I request for 2 empty bowls to fill up some local food bought from outside, it's immediately sent after informing even it's showering with strong wind at that time. All of the arrangement from the manager and minor acts from the staffs really make me feel that I'm home sweet home once again. Overall, this is still one of the best YTL resort which I do not hesitate to return in near future. As mentioned, if you love silence just like me, you may opt to visit during early of the year as long as you're not bother by the uncertain weather during this monsoon season.
"Weekend away from KL"
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 most pleasant surprises of our stay was the quality of the food. At each meal in the main restaurant the chefs, Ann and Maz came around throughout the meal, first to help us with your selection and then to ensure we were satisfied. They encouraged us to try different dishes we probably would not have otherwise. At breakfast Chef Maz made my wife a special bowl of Laksa Terengganu, which was amazing. Lunch by the pool was also very nice. The variety and quality were good and the service attentive and friendly. As we live in KL we were able to take advantage of the resident package, which seemed ok but may have limited our menu. We received special service Oliver at the Teratai Terrace bar and restaurant. He was attentive at the bar during our stay and then helped us navigate our Steamboat, hotpot dinner our last night. Thank you Oliver for a great night. We also want to thank Harry for taking care of us while we lounged by the pool. He was always there with a glass of cool water or something a bit stronger when requested. His friendly attitude was recognised and appreciated. There are a few areas that the resort management could work on to make the resort better. When we checked in we were overwhelmed with a long list of rules and acknowledgements. While I appreciate the need for this it seemed a bit nit picky. For example having to sign for a wifi adapter power cord seemed a bit picky for a resort of this caliber. We also think that the way the mandatory 10% service charge is managed and communicated is unclear and a bit deceiving. The signs are everywhere however the bills did not show the service and when we asked the servers if service was included they said no just tax. This was further confused by the line in the bill for gratuity. Even when we asked at the front desk they said the price on the bill was net which was even more confusing. If service is included why not list it on the bill? Over all a great weekend, thank you.
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 was done with a smile.. The restaurant and food were excellent and with Chef Ann helping you to make choices and as a result we did not have a bad meal. A nice touch was the pool assistants who kept you topped up with iced water. We will have no qualms in recommending this hotel and are looking forward to going back.
"Wonderful days at Tanjong Jara"
When I first heard from my daughter, that sheâ€™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, all my fears were dispelled! From the 3 gong welcome to the reception, served with cool towels and roselle drink to lunch at the Atas Sungei restaurant. The friendly staff from Reception to Housekeeping are all very accommodating and met with our requests very promptly! Very quickly we warmed to Chef Ann and her staff at the Atas Sungei restaurant. The restaurant staff at the Nelayan and Teratai were also very attentive and easy to talk with. We had a memorable time, enjoying great food through breakfast to dinner. The pool boy was always busy serving iced water with a big smile. The room was exquisite with a daybed and a huge bathroom! It is comfort to the max with a turndown service. We travelled to Bali and Thailand and found the hospitality commendable; but to experience such fantastic warm hospitality and service in our own country is huge! We were treated like royalties, literally! Thank you All for the sweet memories. We will be back.
"An Oasis and sanctuary for the Young, Old and in between."
If you are looking for an oasis of rest, luxury and peace, Tanjong Jara has all you need. Whether you are a couple (they have "adults only" pool) or a family with young children (us!) they cater for us all. The resort is run extremely well by Mr. Terence and his team of staffs (from front desk, to each restaurants to the chefs) make you their priority. We were there for our 10 year wedding anniversary and they fulfilled every request and made us a memorable weekend. The food was divine (except the coffee needs a notch up on the improvement scale.) and the mix of western cuisine and local Flavours and cultures was all well combined. It is arguably quite a "Malaysian" resort but it gives you the appreciation of the Malaysian heritage and we learned a few historical facts staying there. We highly recommend this resort esp if you are based out of Kuala Lumpur - it's an easy enough 3.5 hour drive or a short flight away with an hour on the road. Must try: one of the special menu at your rooms or at their recommended spots. We tried two menus (feet in the sand and BBQ under the stars) and were very happy with the quality, the presentation and the service. Bravo to the YTL Hotel Group - our first adventure was at Pankor Laut Resort and our 10th at Tanjong Jara and they fulfilled the romance of it all.
