Fronted by palm fringed, emerald seas, Tanjong Jara Resort is a sanctuary of luxury and well-being steeped in the unmistakable grace of age-old Malay traditions. The award-winning architecture of this resort reflects the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces, offering an authentic taste of the region’s spirit and an enduring embodiment of gentle Malay arts and hospitality.
The rooms are furnished in local timber and rich fabrics. From the private terraces guests are lulled by the sighs of waves and the warm tropical breeze. The luxury accommodations feature in room climate control, sumptuous bedding and large en-suite bathrooms with oversized tubs and rain showers. The Bumbung Rooms are located on the top floor of the palaces, some offering panoramic sea views, with the Serambi Rooms positioned beneath facing into the tropical gardens. Semi detached Anjung Rooms are spacious havens facing the beachfront – the outdoor bath taking centre stage and ideal for honeymooners or any romantic escape.
Seamlessly integrated with the resort is the Spa Village, dedicated to combining the therapeutic properties of natural local ingredients and the innate healing practices of the area, providing a special, restorative experience. The beachfront pool is an oasis within the tropical gardens, allowing you to laze away the afternoon in paradise.
With a focus on freshness and local flavours, dining at Tanjong Jara Resort’s restaurants is scenic, exquisite and informal; offering traditional Malaysian dishes or delectable Western fare. Honouring the best ingredients on its doorstep, coastal cuisine is one of the highlights of Tanjong Jara Resort, and with a selection of charming settings, meals here are relaxed, enjoyable experiences; whether on the beach gazing out to sea, under the shade of rustling palms or over the meandering river. Di Atas Sungei is a must – with no menu guests are guided by the resort’s menu masters to provide a unique dining experience with the freshest flavours available.
