Tanjong Jara Resort


The Tanjong Jara Resort is a sister property to Pangkor Laut on the East Coast of Malaysia. The resort is styled using traditional 17th century Malay architecture, winning it many prestigious awards. The resort offers four dining experiences, a spa and rooms featuring private decks or balconies that overlook the beach.


  • Snorkelling and diving on Tenggol Island (Mar-Oct)
  • Located on Malaysia's unspoiled East Coast
  • Nature lovers delight in the miles of pristine beach, reef and rainforest to explore
  • An award winning Spa offering traditional Malay therapies


Terengganu, Malaysia

Best time to go

The monsoon season occurs between November and February so the Malaysian east coast is best avoided during this time of year as the rains are quite heavy and some of the resorts close until March. March to September would be the prime time.

Our thoughts

This resort is located on a 17-hectare site with an expansive stretch of private beach on the northeast coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It features an excellent dive school, virtually untouched rainforests for hiking and wildlife spotting, and a nearby village. The reefs of Terengganu Marine Park are approximately 45 minutes from the resort and offer spectacular snorkelling and diving opportunities.
