Discover the perfect romantic getaway at Tanjong Jara Resort, a sun-drenched tropical paradise of lush gardens, emerald waters, and legendary Malaysian hospitality.

Designed to mirror the elegant lines of a 17th-century palace, Malay heritage is evident in every aspect of the Tajong Jara Resort. The rooms are decorated in luxurious fabrics and furniture made from rich local timbers, and windows offer stunning views over the South China Sea.

Sit on the beach under the shade of palm trees and gaze out at the emerald waters. When you hear the bells chime at noon, it signals that the catch of the day has come in. Make sure to sidle up to a table at Nelayan restaurant, where that same fresh catch will turn up on your plate. Or savor a poolside cocktail at Teratai Terrace, and chase it up with fine Malaysian cuisine at Di Atas Sungei.

Get adventurous with snorkeling and diving, or unwind with the Tanjong Club Spa's Malay healing treatments. Take a class in Batik painting, or learn how to cook Malaysian food. At the end of the day, let the sighing waves and the scent of hibiscus flowers lull you to sleep, immersed in serenity and beauty.

Perfect Honeymoon

Service - 5 Star. All the staff were so sincere and kind to us from the moment we arrived. The staff will go to so much effort to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. We were made to feel very special on our honeymoon.

Food - Very nice Asian and Western cuisine although a little pricey. We looked forward to trying out something new from the menu each day.

Location - Pristine location. Beautiful trees and plants all over the resort, you really feel like you are in heaven. The water at the beach was warm enough lay in all day and I even did a bit of fishing off of the rocks.

Room - We stated in the Anjung suite, right on the coast line. The water from the beach was crashing at our door step. I think because it was our honeymoon they put us in the best room they had!

Overall would highly recommend. Will probably go back there for our anniversary at some stage.
