Nearly wonderful
Major concern was a lack of wine! We found it difficult to appreciate the issues with wine availability...... It's a Muslim country but Europeans like wine, not in excess but with meals etc. On our first day we had to chose 5 times from the drinks menu before finding what was in stock after frustratingly asking ' what do you have'! This was the experience on the last day also, why what's going on with wine availability, specially at £50 + and between 4 we desired one per day. However, the stay was good, certainly had better so unable to say it was excellent but good value for what we paid. The manager never to be seen nor introduce himself which is rare in a hotel that has so few guests , relations obviously not needed in his opinion. The rooms were nice although a terrible problem with insect bites and only had one fogging during our stay. The gaps in floor boards and doors didn't help. Very clean and well appointed but no balcony or out door area to appreciate the sights and sounds unless in a downstairs room, certainly a missed opportunity in the planning. I really liked the entry into rooms with classical music played and quick show around. Pool areas perhaps could do with a little more care and attention, sweeping of floors daily and skimming of water debris more frequently would have helped the condition of swims. The adult pool was simply sad and unloved - ala naturelle! Leaves everywhere and days upon days of unswept walk ways which are not plesant in bare feet going to take a dip.the seating could also do with a quick daily wipe down. Although the area was great for adults the insect population was greater and hungry! Restaurants good, with fairly good service although some little guys lacked experience and appittude. One certain mention must got to Rod who was expemplary throughout! A true, intellegent and full of common sense sense guy. He anticipated needs of the customer and always had the table set just perfect with individual thought, ie bowls and chopsticks for 2 out of our 4 guest table. Another stand out employee was Oliver, so gracious and obliging. The surrounding area was lovely, quiet and calm. Access into the sea and beach was nice but footwear needed as the sand gets blooming Hot! No snorkelling around these waters sadly We took a taxi to the local town which was easy and 30 R ( ok. Shopping in Dungun The main aspect for us being foodies/wines was the food and chef Ann- she was simply amazing and 'mad' such an asset to the hotel. The original idea of chef taking an order at the table of personal choices is a good concept of dining with a difference. All and I mean all and every dish that came out from the kitchen was amazing, simply wonderful and delicious and plentiful. Ann travelling around the resort on her bike and chatting to all wash lovely feature, shame we didn't see the manager half as much. My thoughts are that there always seemed to be over the top staff on reception -mostly 4, for why? Few residents who needed attention but public areas that are crying out for support!

I am in LOVE!!!!!
This hotel is everything i hoped and more! There was a sucimurni experience every saturday where you sit on a tikar eat keropok lekor, play congkak, sepak takraw or paint batik, with a smart monkey picking out fresh coconut for you to drink, was a pleasant experience, me being a city girl finds this to be super! The beach was beautiful, with swings ,hammock and beach beds makes you just want to lounge there the whole day. Two lovely swimming pool. Even on high occupancy the facilities of the resort are well segregated, so it feels like the place is all yours at some moment of time, that is my definition of luxury for sure! Spa is hands down one of the best i have ever had, everything was perfect from the moment i stepped into the spa and until i left, every person was treated as an individual and was taken care of gently and carefully by the masseuse, the pressure of the massage for me was just right and they mastered the points of the body well, this is in comparison to the massages ive had experienced at turkey,thai or bali, i was left totally relaxed and satisfied. Room had exceeded my expectations, i know this resort is old so i was ready to get disappointed but i was surprised, the upkeep is great! Bathroom so big you can actually roll around on the floor! we also had a veranda looking out to the sea which is also a plus side, being able to just lounge outside your room is just lovely. But last but not least is the service, the service to me is the highlight of this resort, everyone from the receptionist to the gardener are all smiling and friendly, they will just talk to you and ask how your day is, making me become totally spoiled here, So if you ask me will i come again, I definitely will say Yes! Yes the price range is a little on the high side, but It is worth every penny, and you deserve the pampering!

If you are seeking peace...
We had 7 nights in a Seaview room without a balcony. The room was immaculate and really well designed with a very large bathroom. Shower was outstanding - roomy and again, immaculately clean. Next time we would choose to have the same room with a balcony as we kept looking enviously at the room next door. Breakfast was excellent with a huge range of options. The same restaurant however was not great for the evening meal- even when we said we were used to authentic Malayfood at home, the meals were watered down for the British palette. We found the Nelayan the best option for both lunch and dinner. Pools were excellent- loved the infinity pool as it was cooler and we enjoyed watching the kids enjoy themselves and parents delighting in their every squeal. The staff are incredibly friendly and seem to genuinely enjoy their work. It is one thing to be nice to guests but they were so polite with each other, supportive and collaborative. Big tick for the management who have established this team culture. Food and drink were reasonable prices especially the happy hour cocktails at 20 ringgit each. Snorkelling at Tengoll Island is a must do. I have snorkelled in a number of places and this is by far the best. Guides were very attentive to safety and our enjoyment. We loved the nightly 'turn down' service- the little water lily leaf with meaningful phrases was a nice touch. Nice also to have good bye cookies on the last night and special dessert with a farewell message in chocolate! If you are looking for peace and quiet, beautiful beaches, fabulous service, excellent roomsand few decisions to make, this is your sort of place!

Beautiful sunrise
Just returned from a five night stay at the Tanjong Jara resort,and only wish it could have been longer! We stayed in a bumbung room which was spacious,spotless and had glimpses of the sea,glad we didn't upgrade as wouldn't have wanted to sit outside on a terrace as the heat was stifling.Food in the restaurants was delicious,with plenty of choice.The infinity pool and surroundings were beautiful with plenty of sun beds both in or out of the sun and the iced water that was made available was a nice touch.All the staff were really kind and helpful,but especially Kathy on reception who excelled at her job,a real treasure! Would love to return sometime soon and bring the rest of the family. ,
