We have just returned from TJR today. Here's a snapshot of our experience. Cons: -This is a resort more for couples as there is basically nothing much for the children except a wadding pool for them. -Waves are too strong for seaside fun. -The resort is rather run down and not properly maintained. On day 1, a wooden frame on...

Greetings from Tanjong Jara resort! Thank you for your comments, I will tend to disagree when you said that our resort is more for couples than families, as we have a lot of families coming here and the children enjoy themselves tremendously. This time of the year I do agree with you that the waves tend to be a little...

We came expecting a relaxing getaway and was not disappointed. The breeze..the sunrise..the sunset..the sound of the lapping waves all contributed to the ambience. On our first day, we were a little puzzled to see the beach cabanas left with sandy towels despite being unoccupied for some time. We were also not served with chilled water. After having stayed at...

Firstly, let me highlight that I have not stayed in the hotel and was only trying to make a reservation. Unfortunately, that's where the disappointments start. The travel date selected was a mandatory field that I had to select or I won't be able to post a comment otherwise. We are a family of 4, our kids are 6 and...

Dear Sir, I saw you post on Tripadvisor and I am rather surprised to say the least, your comments are erroneous and to put it on a social platform without checking with the management of the resort is something not advisable. We will take it with a light heart and forgive you, we will be very happy to welcome you...

We spent 5 days and nights in the Tanjong Jara Resort and can only recommend it. Maybe it is not unexceptional perfect, for example, the toilets are not high-end, the lavatory cisternis is a bit noisy or there squeaks sometimes a tap, but all in all, are the only little things which cannot cloud the overall impression. There is free...

Our family of 3 generations traveled to Tanjong Jara Beach Resort for our annual trip this past week. With the recent completion of the East Coast Expressway (LPT2), getting into Dungun was a breeze. The resort sits on 17 hectare of land which was great as the place never feels overcrowded even with full occupancy. Except when you venture into...
