About Tanjong Jara Resort


Situated on a 17-hectare site of beautiful, landscaped tropical gardens, the architecture is inspired by the 17th century wooden palaces of the indigenous sultans. Focusing on the timelessness of Sucimurni wholesomeness and well-being, the five-star Tanjong Jara Resort, located on peninsular Malaysia’s east coast between Kuala Terengganu and Kuantan, is dedicated to the Malay culture and heritage. Recreational options include a swimming pool, yoga, fishing, water sports, sailing, and scuba diving. And before you head back, a stop at the award-winning Spa Village is a must, where guests can experience treatments passed down through generations. Rooms, furnished in local timber and fabrics, command spectacular sea views. Fresh seafood is offered daily, along with traditional Chinese and international cuisine. Tanjong Jara Resort is an ideal choice to relax in the lap of luxury.

Truly top notch Malaysian hospitality!
Great escape from the city. We really love how the resort infuses all the local cultures and traditions as a part of the programmes for their guest, from food, to art and activities. We were also lucky to be staying there at the time when they were releasing newly hatched turtle into the sea.

Short trip to Tanjong Jara
Took a chance to stay at Tanjong Jara during the school holidays with booking of the Anjung with breakfast package. The resort and Anjung suite is beautiful. Breakfast at DiAtas Sungei was great with lotsa lovely variety and taste great, especially the local kuehs.

Great Property Spoilt by Poor Overall Customer Service
Superb hotel with amazing beach and facilities. Amazing location too. Restaurant and food is also excellent. Overall customer service not on par with other YTL or great hotels. Had better service experience in Majestic KL, Majestic Malacca and Pangkor Laut.
