Tanjong Jara Resort Terengganu Overview

Tanjong Jara Resort is situated on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia and lies mid-way between Kuala Terengganu in the North and Kuantan to the South. The resort is built on a sprawling 17-hectare beachfront site facing the South China Sea.

Originally built in 1979, the resort was awarded one of the world’s foremost prizes for architecture, the prestigious Aga Khan Award. And although it has recently been extensively renovated to the standards of a modern deluxe international resort, its original beauty has been preserved, and even enhanced. The look and feel reflects a combination of styles from within the Malay Archipelago, the philosophy being to assure guests an experience that is Unmistakably Malay.

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.

Teratai Terrace
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.

The Nelayan
'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.
