A little bit of Paradise
Four days of luxurious pampering in amazing surroundings, with fantastic food and service thrown in, If you come here ask for one of the room numbers 5105/06 as the view from the room is spectacular, Every member of staff here make you feel very special, all the staff remember your names after just one meeting, The surroundings are fantastic and have been built into the landscape. Special thanks go to Cathy who looked after all our needs from the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble. Rakesh the barman at the adult only pool, and also Ann the Chef and all her team for providing some wonderful meals. We must also mention the staff who somehow kept our room clean and well stocked with everything, without us ever seeing them. This is truly a top class resort and we cannot wait to return and would advise anyone thinking of going not to hesitate.

Battery charge in Paradise
Ten days in Paradise with a lot of smiling angels to help us, could describe our stay at Tanjong Jara in September. Everyone we met were so friendly and helpfull. We enjoyed everything; the room, the Food, the SPA(exellent), the Beach, the sea - and all the People! Thank you for making our vacation so Nice!

Absolutely amazing service!
We usually don't write reviews but felt Tanjong Jara and its staff deserved a special mention thanks to the impeccable service we received during our stay. We've visited quite a few luxury hotels in Asia and never have we received quite such a warm, welcoming and genuine treatment. In many places you can feel the staff smiles because they have been directed to do so, but no genuine connections are made and the whole experience ends up feeling quite transactional. At Tanjong Jara the staff took the time to get to know us and our preferences without imposing or being overly familiar. We want to send a special thanks to Kathy, who made our proposal a truly unique and beautiful experience. We had purchased the treasured moments package and really appreciated them tailor-making the schedule ahead of time to fit into our travel plans. Kathy did an amazing job from the first point of contact till the farewell (everything from email interactions, follow-up calls, briefing, keeping the proposal a secret, regular checkups during our stay, helping with the extension and arranging photographs) - any hotel would be very lucky to have her as their event manager! A special thank you also goes out to Rakesh, who served most of our meals. We loved how positive and attentive he was during the meals and really appreciated getting to know him. The rest of the staff also treated us with smiles and great service. All in all, a wonderful experience which will act as a benchmark when visiting other resorts in the world. A final thing we really appreciated was continuously receiving ice-water with orange wedges in all areas of the resort without ever needing to ask. These small details really make a huge difference :)

Great resort bit off the beaten track and not powder sand beaches of the east coast
This is a luxurious and well run resort, super accommodation and high standards throughout. Wonderful to see wildlife close at hand - monkies at breakfast, baby turtle releases at night, monitor lizards roaming round the resort, plus even the likes of cuttlefish close to shore . Food very good although despite the 3 restaurants we had exhausted them with lunches and dinners after a week. The 2 negatives are that 1) there really is nothing outside the resort and we don't feel you could get a true sense of Malaysia (nothing to see in Dungun - it's a normal Muslim town) and 2) as large as it is, the beach really was not what we were hoping/expecting for this part of the world; the sea was not a tranquil azure blue, in fact was rough at times and very few fish so snorkelling and water sports out and the sand wasn't white powder. To get fantastic snorkelling/scuba diving you must make the trip over to the islands about 40 mins - really worth doing as was fab and there it is azure blue sea with powder sand. It's really like Alex Garland 's The Beach over there. Note it's a v long ride to the hotel from KL - 4.5/5 hours in the extremely comfortable hotel transport. Would suggest going here if you're travelling down that east coast from Perhentian islands etc

Luxurious, beautiful and perfect getaway
From the time my family and I arrived till the moment we left the resort, the service and staff have been really wonderful. Their staff are really friendly, warm and ever ready to help and ensure that you have a great stay there. We booked the seaview Serambi room but was upgraded to seaview Anjung room when we arrived which is nice and spacious enough for 3 of us...love the indoor and outdoor bath area. The resort is really quiet, beautiful with so much greenery, it made us feel like we were on our own private resort as we didn't see many people around until breakfast time when we realised that there were alot of other guests at the resort. The beach is very clean though it has been eroded over time. We were lucky that they have turtle hatchlings on the day we arrived at the resort so we got to experience the release of the hatchlings at night and the education on the turtle conservation program. Food was great, love food and varieties they served during breakfast especially the teh tarik and the local food. The resort also offer various water sports and outdoor activities but we didn't book any of those as we just wanted to enjoy the tranquillity and surrounding beauty of the resort. They have a family pool and another pool for adult only but just a word of advice to those who wants to use the adult pool, make sure you can swim or at least float as one end of the adult pool is about 9ft deep! Movie is also shown at the adult pool area every night. Overall, my family and I had a really wonderful and relaxing time there. Were actually a little sad that we had to leave this little paradise behind and get back to reality but we've had a really great short break away from all the hustle and bustle of a city life. Would not hesitate to stay at the resort again should we have a chance to do so in the future. Thank you for the warm hospitality.
