"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 art 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.

Accommodation

Discover the sublime sleep of kings. Evenings garlanded by the perfume of lush gardens, lulled by the soft sighs of gentle waves, enchanted by the intoxicating glow of a midnight moon. Sleep comes easy here. Furnished in local timber and rich fabrics, selected rooms command a view of the South China Sea. The Anjung room comes with an outdoor bath set in its own private garden while the Serambi and Bumbung rooms look out to the merging of sea and sky or landscaped tropical gardens.

Facilities

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. There are two swimming pools at Tanjong Jara Resort, a free-form pool near the Teratai Terrace and lobby, and another adjacent to the beach near the Spa Village. Each pool has towels and deck chairs for sun lovers, and refreshments are served at the pool deck.

Restaurants

Guests are welcomed with the famed Roselle drink, made from the extract of Hibiscus flowers - the same ingredient used in the secret recipe for Roselle chicken. In Tanjong Jara, the fare on offer is matched in variety only by the settings where you can savour your meal. Gazing out to sea at the Nelayan, under the shade of rustling palms at Teratai Terrace or over the meandering river at Di Atas Sungei.
