   Hotel Overview
Overview - Tanjong Jara Resort

Discover how Malay kings once crafted their palaces. Fronted by an emerald sea glittering with diamonds of light, shaded by tall palms rustling in the breeze, attended to by a people steeped in traditions as timeless as the land.

Located on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Tanjong Jara Resort is a sanctuary of luxury and well-being steeped in age-old Malay traditions. Designed to reflect the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces, Tanjong Jara is a 99-room resort with an authentic taste of the region's spirit and an enduring embodiment of the gentle Malay arts of service and hospitality.

The philosophy of the Resort is as unique as the Resort itself. Based on the Malay concept of Sucimurni, which emphasises purity of spirit, health and well-being, Tanjong Jara encourages true rejuvenation of both body and spirit.

Tanjong Jara is an opportunity to withdraw from the pressures of this ever-changing world by offering you a chance to immerse yourself in a place of serenity and beauty. Authentic in architecture and attitude, always warm and welcoming, it is an environment to let go, to relax deeply and take time to rediscover yourself, your family or your friends; all this whilst staff members drawn from the local villages truly live the age old legacy of Malaysian warmth and hospitality.

At Tanjong Jara you can choose from a wide variety of possible experiences - lazy and languid, energetic and outdoors, indulgent and regenerative, cultural and enlightening - it is your choice whether you fold them into a single visit, or you craft each visit differently to meet your needs.

Hotel of the Week
The Independent on Sunday UK, November 27, 2005

  • Di Atas Sungei

    'Di Atas Sungei' is Malay for 'Above The River' so guests will find it easy to spot this restaurant which literally sits above a river that flows into the South China Sea. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, and shaded by a huge Ketapang tree, the restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and serves authentic Malaysian cuisine.

  • Teratai Terrace

    Steamboat, Asia's most popular dining style, is served during dinner. Tender meat, fresh fish, seafood and a variety of garden fresh vegetables are steeped in a savoury simmering broth providing an authentic taste of the region. Enjoy pre-dinner or after-dinner drinks to the soothing sounds of Gamelan music and the cool breeze from the sea.

  • The Nelayan

    'Nelayan' in the Malay language means 'Fisherman'. Befitting the restaurant's name, seafood is the speciality of this outlet. Situated by the sea, the atmosphere at The Nelayan is relaxed and informal. A variety of local and Western light meals are served for lunch and the Resort's own fishermen bring in the catch of the day for dinner. Weather permitting, guests have the option of enjoying a delightful alfresco dining experience on the beach featuring bamboo torches and the gentle sound of the waves.
  • Dinner on the Beach

    Indulge in a romantic dinner under the indigo sky as the cool sea breeze drifts past you both, accompanied by the soothing melody of the Gamelan. While guests feast their eyes on the moonlit waters of the South China Sea and luxuriate in the beauty of the natural surroundings, a delectable five-course set dinner is served. The golden sands, glowing hurricane lanterns and tranquil setting make for an ideal outdoor dining experience.

  • BBQ At Your Doorstep

    Dine in the privacy of your terrace with a Chef who will barbecue your dinner the way you like it. We bring all the fixings to your door and you will be assigned a personal butler. Available for the Anjung and Serambi rooms only.
