Property Description: Tanjong Jara Resort is situated on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, between Kuala Terengganu in the North and Kuantan in the South. The Resort is built on a 17-hectare site facing the South China Sea. The riverine town of Dungun lies west of Tanjong Jara and is eight kilometres away.
The Resort is accessible by road from all major cities within Peninsular Malaysia. It is approximately a mile away from the expressway and one hour drive from Kuala Terengganu Airport. The Resort provides transfers via limousine services from the Kuala Terengganu Airport, Kerteh Airport, Kuantan Airport (in the state of Pahang), or Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang. These 44 rooms are situated above the Serambi Rooms and are similar in size and furnishings, excluding private terraces where the windows open out to a magnificent view of the ocean and gardens. Guests are welcomed with our famed Roselle drink, made from the extract of Hibiscus flowers - the same ingredient used in our secret recipe for Roselle chicken.
Each day the ringing bell at noon signals the arrival of the day's catch. In Tanjong Jara, the fare on offer is matched in variety only by the settings where you can savour your meal. Gazing out to sea at the Nelayan, under the shade of rustling palms at Teratai Terrace or over the meandering river at Di Atas Sungei.
'Di Atas Sungei' is Malay for 'Above The River' so guests will find it easy to spot this restaurant which literally sits above a river that flows into the South China Sea. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, and shaded by a huge Ketapang tree, the restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and serves authentic Malaysian cuisine.
Steamboat, Asia's most popular dining style, is served during dinner. Tender meat, fresh fish, seafood and a variety of garden fresh vegetables are steeped in a savoury simmering broth providing an authentic taste of the region. Enjoy pre-dinner or after-dinner drinks to the soothing sounds of Gamelan music and the cool breeze from the sea.
'Nelayan' in the Malay language means 'Fisherman'. Befitting the restaurant's name, seafood is the speciality of this outlet. Situated by the sea, the atmosphere at The Nelayan is relaxed and informal. A variety of local and Western light meals are served for lunch and the Resort's own fishermen bring in the catch of the day for dinner. Weather permitting, guests have the option of enjoying a delightful alfresco dining experience on the beach featuring bamboo torches and the gentle sound of the waves.
