Tanjong Jara Resort

This small and beautifully restored resort is styled on a typical 17th century Malay palace. The interiors are decorated in rich timbers and local fabrics, reflecting age-old traditions and culture.

A one and a half kilometre stretch of sandy beach separates the resort from the South China Sea. The resort offers great diving and snorkelling excursions around Tenggol Island - a short 45 minute boat ride away. Between March and October the diving season is considered the best with clear waters.

The rooms either face the South China Sea or the tropical landscaped gardens. The Bumbung Room is situated on the top floor of a double storey accomodation, with contemporary design. The Serambi room is on the ground floor with a private verandah. The Anjung room is single storey and all face the beachfront.
