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.

"Unwind and Relax "
Having travelled many times to Malaysia we were looking for a different experience this time and we came across this beautiful hotel on the east coat of Malaysia. We arrived on Christmas Day after traveling for approximately 24 hours due to the food over Dubai but what a surprise to be welcomed on our arrival by the general manager Terrance a fellow South African and we just felt at home. Thanks to Terrence who chatted with us for a while and made us feel really welcome and we had just forgotten the long journey we had had. We were greeted by the song and had the most refreshing welcome drive Iâ€™ve ever had at a hotel. We were checked in by Win and lovely guy who took us around the resort to our room which was decorated for our 10th anniversary. The room was beautiful and had fantastic views of the sea and gardens. The grounds of the hotel ore lush and full of greenery and you could just find a hammock and chill for a couple of hours enjoying the views and sounds of nature. The pool area is large and many lounges available for guest to enjoy. We spent time at the spa and what a lovely 3 hours spent having my treatment at the spa village. Itâ€™s a must try and truly relaxing experience. Breakfast was good and had a good variety. Enjoyed the tours to the night market but the time for us was a bit to short but a good experience. Overall a good stay and a fantastic resort will definitely recommend anyone to give this place a visit.
"Decent Facilities with Generally Poor Service"
First, I would like to say that I am generally a fan of YTL hotels, and have stayed at various ones for the past few years. While it was my first time staying at Tanjong Jara, I have stayed at YTL's Pangkor Laut Resort several times, and was expecting a somewhat similar experience, which is very pleasant overall. Unfortunately, it was not on par with that expectation. I stayed in an Anjung Room, which, according to their website, is a luxurious beachfront facing room with an open verandah. Judging from the pictures, it is absolutely lovely. In reality, however, there is quite a bit of distance between the room and the beach, and numerous objects blocking the view of the sea, and nothing at all like what I had imagined. It was truly disappointing, as the picture and explanation made it seem that the verandah opened directly onto the beach. The interior is well designed, much like Pangkor Laut Resort, and quite spacious. The bathroom area is very adequate, although there is a difference in height between the bedroom and bathroom with some steps in between, which I found a bit annoying, especially when going to the toilet in the middle of the night. The amenities were fine, and everything was stocked properly. Everything was kept mostly clean and neat, except for the floor. The floor was very dusty, and I would not suggest walking around barefoot. At one point, I stepped on a shard of glass that somehow mysteriously got on the floor despite it being immediately after housekeeping had finished cleaning the room. The glass cut deep into my foot, but fortunately, I was able to pull it out without too much damage. The beach is as fine as you can expect for this area. The sand is coarse, but not rough, and due to the location, the waves are big and crash hard. Not really ideal for swimming, but certainly surf-worthy. Don't expect clear waters, though, as this area in general is mostly murky, not necessarily from being dirty, but simply of the terrain. There really aren't any proper establishments near the hotel, and you will most likely be spending most of your time within the hotel premises. For an area like Dungun, the prices within the hotel are certainly overpriced, but if you're staying here, it's something you simply have to accept. Taxis are rare and hard to come by, and if you plan on exploring the surrounding countryside or the nearby rural town, it may be advisable to drive your own/rent a car. Breakfast was adequate and sufficient, with the common items such as breads, pastries, local cuisine such as nasi lemak and curries, egg station, etc. Do bear in mind that this is a halal resort and does not serve pork. Also, I should mentioned that the coffee was surprisingly good. Now we get to the biggest part -- the staff. In general, most of the staff were subpar, ranging from unattentive to downright horrible. The reception staff were friendly, but mostly clueless in regards to comments and special requests. Housekeeping and maintenance staff were careless and brash. Security staff at the gate are inconsiderate, although I did see an attempt at being as friendly as possible. I would like to point out that there were very helpful and friendly staff, but they were certainly in the minority, and from my expectations from YTL hotels, I believe the training and education of the staff could be much much better. Also, the Caucasians who seemed to be managers seemed to do absolutely nothing. They would stop by to speak with Caucasian guests while basically ignoring all the Asian guests. I truly have no clue as to what their role is. While this is not something specific to Tanjong Jara Resort, it is still disturbing and disappointing. The worst experience during my 5 night stay was with the restaurant Di Atas Dungai. The restaurant is advertised as customized cuisine by famous chefs, but in actuality, it's a simple structure of the guests choosing ingredients and predetermined methods of cooking, which is certainly nothing new nor particularly exciting. On top of that, the staff just didn't seem to care; not one bit. The portions were small, and prices were insanely high for what we got. We ordered a bottle of wine, which came with the wrong vintage, and no one ever bothered to pour our glasses when they were empty. Because of this experience, we ended up going out to the nearby town for the remainder of our meals. Finally, we stayed here during Christmas, which is the monsoon season, but surprisingly, the weather was quite good -- generally sunny and warm. The main pool by the beach is quite picturesque, and well built and maintained. The staff at the pool were...indifferent. Honestly, if this were a random hotel by a random organization, it wouldn't be so bad. But seeing that it's a part of YTL hotels, and you're being charged for a luxurious overall experience in a rural area that's hard to get to, the overall quality is simply unacceptable. I sincerely hope that YTL hotels considers drastically improving the quality, although it is unlikely that I will stay here again.
"Good Resort but don`t visit in raining season"
We bring our parents to the resort to celebrate new year of 2018, we stayed for 2 nights. Upon arrival, the resort did give us a very good first impression, however we spend sometime around half hour waiting to be checked in. The car park is not near to the lobby or to our rooms, there was no shelter but only threes, so your car will be covered with fallen leaves and branches after a raining night. The rooms are ok, but we found the wash basin was not well cleaned and left with the previous customer`s long hair. We went to the sea, and find it was extremely rough, actually, throughout the days we stayed there, we never had the chance to visit the sea due to extremely strong wind and rain. The sand on the beach is yellow yet coarse, not a good choice for beach lovers. The breakfast is normal as well, although the staff are lovely and warmhearted, the numbers of staff is not sufficient, and you will need to wait for a long queue for your sunnysideups, the soup noodle as well. overall, comparing to other seaside resorts or island resorts that i have visited, tanjong jara resort has no extraordinary attraction point, i would imagine this resort will leave me a better impression if i come at the right season, but as for me, i will never come back at the year end. if you are looking for some good time to spend with your families in Malaysia, i would recommend you to go to the island around April to September, Redang Island, better and more economic choice. Sorry YTL, just a three out of Five for you.
"Best Choice for the East Coast of Malaysia"
I grew up in Malaysia and we vacationed on the East Coast every year. The place we used to stay, unfortunately turned into a Club Med location so has been ruled out. We have stayed at a lot of mid price places and liked them all. Last year we opted for the luxury end and stayed at Tanjong Jara Resort. It was absolutely wonderful. It is not cheap and for Malaysia pretty pricey but for UK prices not too bad. We had one of the Anjung rooms which gave us direct, personal beach access and a fantastic room with an outside bath. Food was good too. We at breakfast each day and then dinner, opting to rest during the high sun lunch period. In addition to the beach and sea which was excellent East Coast Malaysia quality there was a great pool. We only used the smaller, more secluded Adults pool which we often had to ourselves, perhaps with one or two other couples on the loungers. Service was good with plenty of water with lots of ice. The air conditioning was good (essential for me since I like to be really cold inside when it is really hot outside). The bathroom was great as well - really big shower. There was a table/desk plus also fridge, a big bed and a big window seat and our own private terrace with more seating. Unless you have children I would recommend rooms on the far side of the smaller pool (to the left when facing the sea) rather than the ones on the large pool side since they will be quieter. It is quite a large resort. This is definitely going to be our beach destination next time we travel to Malaysia.
From the check in till the check out, it was a lovely experience, very relaxing. I had a little problem in understanding the lady who checked us in and showed around. Otherwise the check in was very smooth and welcoming. Breakfast selection was good and the service as well at the breakfast, very attentive. One thing if U are visiting this resort is that U must try the spa. It was superb!! Someone wrote in their review thats its a gem of the east coast, No Doubt about that. A slight negative thing that its a bit far from KL, but its totally worth the drive. Will visit this place again soon.
