If you are looking for a honeymoon hideaway, truly off the beaten track…Tanjong Jara, on the east coast of Malaysia, could be the perfect choice for you. Framed by glorious golden beaches and thick tropical jungle, this is wild romance at its best.
The resort style is effortlessly elegant, and the architecture is based on the 17th century Malay palaces, therefore boasting beautiful wooden buildings with intricate details and unique touches around every corner. Each room has been carefully put together with comfort and relaxation in mind… choose either a Bumbung or Serambi Seaview room and wake up each morning to the gentle lapping of the waves on the beach outside.
Enjoy fresh seafood caught that day, dine under the stars with a private dinner for two, or visit the resorts well known restaurant ‘Di Atas Sungei’ (Malay for ‘Above the River’) which floats atop the nearby river on its journey through the resort before reaching the South China Sea.
Once you have had some well deserved R&R and activities are on the cards, there is a multitude on offer for you to choose from. A guided trek through the jungle is a must, hire bikes to visit nearby fishing villages, take part in a local Malay cookery class or for those at home in the water, head below the surface and enjoy one of many dive spots along the surrounding reef.
Tanjong Jara is also a wonderful resort to include as part of a longer itinerary in Malaysia. Twin with a city stop in Kuala Lumpur, or as part of a West to East itinerary, you can twin Tanjong Jara with its sister hotel Pangkor Laut.
