    The rooms are very big and there is enough space for everything. The towels are changed twice a day. Huge bathroom with seperate tube and shower and 2 places for washing. 2 pools but one in an aerea with no wind. The staff is very helpfull. They safed my life when one wing started to burn.and the hotel gave us for the inconvinience to be waked up at 5 am and to change room 50% on our restaurant bills.very generous

    The food is excellent so the service but the price for a set menue for 250 myr seems to be too high

    Excellent services, nice spa and the snorkeling was fun too.

  • Family with children

    It is a good place to relax, unwind and rejuvenate from work stress. As it is not a high density populated resort, provides sufficient privacy to couples and family. The staff is friendly and I would like to mention one of the staff by the name of Gin. She was helpful and offered to draw a map of the location of where I could find local delicacies. Overall experience was good.

    I realized that the coconut trees along the walkway / paths at the resort had ripe coconuts on it. It would be good to ensure the coconuts are harvested regularly before they could reach a size which could fall and hurt people who are walking along the paths.

    What stands out for me over the other resorts I've been are the staff of Tanjong Jara are absolutely friendly, from housekeeping to f&b staff, including the Chef! The resort is clean, well maintained and the room is spacious enough for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The Spa is defintely commendable and is a must try! Food is above average.

    I wish there are more activities for the kids, besides the kids play room. Also the food flies can be a menace.

    Supurb staff and location. You are made to feel part of a family.

    Some of the huts are beginning to look a little worn, but continuous maintanence is underway to correct this.

    Been for 4D3N in March 2011. The environment there is soothing best for relaxing. Unfortunately it was raining most of the time so we spent less out at beach. What a waste. Should there be no rain, play and rest by the beach will be a wonderful experience because it has a beautiful stretch of beach sets for leisure especially with family members. Room was very nice simply luxury & comfortable to rest mind either facing sea or garden. Whole experience at this resort was very pleasant & wonderful.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The hospitality of the staff, especially the guest relations and housekeeping. The room is spacious and the bed is very comfortable.

    There is no internet connection in the room. There should be a better task chair to sit at the work desk.

  • Family with children

    Close to nature. Out of Town. Excellent get away.

    No complimentary breakfast for the price paid.

    It has a delightful location and ambience. It provides a genuine insight into the culture and traditions of the area in very comfortable and tasteful surroundings. The individual chalets are tasteful and equipped to a very high standard.

    Good location

    No "vow" factor for the money paid. Nothing special with food either. Value for money 6/10
