Tanjong Jara Resort reopens its doors

A sanctuary of tranquillity immersed in the age-old traditions of the East Coast of Malaysia, the 99-room Tanjong Jara Resort reopened on 16th January 2014 after a two-month-long rejuvenation exercise, eager to wish its guests across the globe “Selamat Datang” (“Welcome”).

The refreshment exercise focused on maintenance of the glorious architecture that the Aga Khan Award winning resort is known for, designed to reflect the grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces. General sprucing up of the rooms and common areas were also conducted, all of which represents YTL Hotels’ commitment to preserving the beauty of the environment and sustaining the guest experience at Tanjong Jara Resort.

Embracing the Malay concept of Sucimurni, which emphasises purity of spirit, health and wellbeing, Tanjong Jara Resort offers a host of wholesome experiences for all to enjoy. From cultural activities such as Kampong Sucimurni Lifestyle, a weekly showcase of a traditional Malay village atmosphere, and guided bicycle tours through the idyllic countryside of Terengganu, to exploring the great outdoors with the Jara Hill walk guided by the Resident Naturalist, there’s something for every holidaymaker. Nature lovers and adventure seekers will love the snorkelling and diving expedition to Tenggol Island, one of Peninsular Malaysia’s best-kept diving secrets, where spotting bright nudibranchs, black-tipped reef sharks and green sea turtles are common occurrences.

For those looking to indulge, the award-winning Spa Village Tanjong Jara truly embodies the philosophy of Sucimurni. Handed down from generation to generation, the unique restorative Malay treatments and beauty rituals offered here are perpetuated for guests’ wellbeing. The Asam Roselle treatment, a signature of this Spa Village, is the ideal experience to complement a tropical getaway.

The ‘Unmistakably Malay’ experience is completed at Di Atas Sungei, where casual daily breakfasts feature Malay and Western favourites, and a unique dinner experience with the Menu Master guides guests through a smorgasbord of local specialities. Alternatively, breezy lunches and contemporary dinners at Nelayan shine with dishes made from locally sourced seafood prepared with a contemporary twist.  For evening sundowners and hearty steamboat dinners, the al fresco Teratai Terrace provides an intimate setting surrounded by lush greenery and a sky dusted with stars.

Enjoy a special reopening offer at Tanjong Jara Resort. Book a minimum of two nights’ stay inclusive of daily breakfast, lunch and dinner from MYR699 nett per room per night (approx. £140). This East Coast Escape is exclusively applicable for the travel period from 16th January 2014 to 31st March 2014 and is the perfect way to refresh, rejuvenate and rediscover the beauty of Tanjong Jara Resort.
