Contemporary style meets historic luxe at Tanjong Jara Resort. This place brings together the grand opulence of Malaysia’s 17th-century palaces and the modern features you’d expect from a five-star resort. And Tanjong Jara Resorthas won the prestigious Aga Khan Award for its innovative architecture, making it one of just a handful of hotels to receive this honour. With spacious verandas, comfortable daybeds and weighty fabrics throughout, this really does feel like an award-winning place to stay.
You’ll be treated to a gastronomic experience at Tanjong Jara Resort. Visit Di AtasSungei – meaning ‘above the river’ in Malay – for a curated dinner. Instead of being handed a menu, you’ll receive recommendations from the ‘menu masters’, so you can try delicious local dishes matched to your tastes. Or visit the resort’s seafood eatery, Nelayan, for a sustainable dinner that puts the catch of the day at the heart of every meal.
There’s loads to do at Tanjong Jara Resort. Swim in the free-form pool or chill out with a movie screening in the evening. You can stay active on the tennis courts, or keep up your workout routine by heading across to the well-equipped fitness centre. In the mood for something more relaxed? Curl up with a great new book in the resort’s library or wander across to the dedicated Spa Village for a full body and mind refresh. You can also journey out to diver’s paradise Tenggol Island –just 45 minutes away by speedboat, this pristine isle is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs and tropical fish.
You won’t get a menu at this riverside restaurant. Instead, ‘menu masters’ will recommend delicious local dishes for you, made with the day’s freshest ingredients of the day.
Get a taste of the ocean at Nelayan, which serves up tasty seafood caught using sustainable fishing practices. Look out across the sea as you dine or sip cocktails.
Sit down for a light bite, salad or local dessert at lunchtime, or visit for a steamboat-style dinner by the pool come evening. There are also nightly movie screenings here.
As part of Tanjong Jara’s unique private dining experiences, you could enjoy a romantic dinner on the beach or share a picnic for two in the resort’s gardens.
Tanjong Jara Resort’s villas were inspired by grand 17th-century Malay palaces, but they’ve been brought right up to date with a contemporary twist. Look out from your private veranda and you’ll be greeted by the resort’s landscaped gardens or the blue waters off Tanjung Jara Beach. And when, another day of exploring is over, you can sink into your oversized bath for a relaxing soak.
