Tanjong Jara Resort is a sanctuary of luxury and wellbeing set on the pristine east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, alongside a golden sandy beach, lapped by gleaming turquoise waters. Its internationally acclaimed architecture is inspired by the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces. The essence of Tanjong Jara Resort is anchored in Sucimurni, the traditional Malay way of life steeped in age-old traditions and culture.
Fronted by palm-fringed, turquoise seas, the award-winning architecture of Tanjong Jara Resort presents a serene collection of elegantly crafted wooden buildings designed to resemble majestic Malay palaces of the 17th century.
Dine by candlelight on the beach under a canvas of stars, at Nelayan restaurant fronting the beach, or experience the resort’s Menu Masters, experts in local cuisine assisting you in crafting your dishes at Di Atas Sungei while being serenaded by the sounds of the gamelan.
On Saturday evenings, tantalising aromas fill the air at the resort’s beachfront garden with authentic traditional delights served from kampong huts. Terengganu’s famous kerepok lekor - a delicacy of deep-fried fish sausages, and lemang - aromatic glutinous rice smoked in bamboo are served with kopi kampong - thick sweet local coffee. Try your hand at congkak - a highly addictive local board game or play a round of sepak takraw - a traditional woven rattan ball game.
Breezes from the South China Sea fan inland past the beach to Spa Village, one of the world’s great spas, seamlessly integrated within the resort. Dedicated to combining therapeutic properties of natural local ingredients with traditional Malay healing arts, to provide a unique, restorative experience.
Surrounding the resort, Terengganu’s natural charms and wonders lie waiting; a meandering river filled with wildlife, sleepy fishing villages shaded by coconut palms, and islands gleaming like jewels in the iridescent sun. Take a cruise, trek through jungle, discover village paths on bicycle or explore the reefs off Tenggol Island, one of Asia’s best-kept dive secrets.
Tanjong Jara Resort is a haven of relaxation, a treasure trove of Malay culture, an authentic taste of the region’s spirit and an enduring embodiment of the gentle Malay arts of service and hospitality.
