Unmistakably Malay and undoubtedly East Coast Malaysia's premier luxury resort, the Tanjong Jara Resort lies almost mid-way between Kuantan and Kuala Terengganu, overlooking the South China Sea on a beautiful crescent-shaped stretch of golden sand. Designed to reflect the elegance and grandeur of 17th century Malay palaces and the region's culture and history, it is a sanctuary of peace that seeks to embody the Malay concept of 'Sucimurni', which emphasises purity of spirit, health and well-being. The resort's striking architecture combines with uniquely designed and elegantly furnished rooms to provide a relaxing palm-shaded private oasis of comfort and tranquillity. This hotel is a fully non smoking hotel.
