Ideally situated away from the beach and recreational areas near the tennis courts, the conference hall is able to accommodate between 80 and 100 people. It is a perfect venue for corporate conferences and meetings as well as themed events. Events may also be arranged to take place in the garden or on the beach, providing guests with a unique dining experience.
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.
Situated beside the Resort's free-form pool with a view of the South China Sea, Teratai Terrace serves cocktails in the evenings and offers private dining experiences. Enjoy dinner and drinks under a canopy of stars to the sweet strains of live gamelan music.
'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 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.

Review of Tanjong Jara Resort
28 Jul 2011
My friends and I can't rate Tanjung
My friends and I can't rate Tanjung Jara Resort high enough. It was fabulous in every way, from the room amenities, landscape, staff service, food to cultural activities. To top it all, the resort was extremely generous in accommodating our early
arrival at 6am and late departure at 7pm - no extra charge for checking in early as well as upgrading us to a bigger beach front room and relocating us to another room after checking out at 12 noon so we had somewhere to keep our luggage and freshen up before leaving the resort. It's a trip that we will remember for a very long time. Thank you HotelClub for making Tanjong Jara affordable at the rate booked and thank you Tanjong Jara for making the resort the way it is. Keep up the good work!
