Went for a 3D2N during school holiday with 3 kids. Really enjoy the Malay lifestyle feel. Great hospitality from the staff. Nice and safety beach. My kids can really run around in the resort. Enjoy the open air night cinema.
Try to include Saturday in your stay as Saturday evening event the the best.
Food serving time is longer than expected and no aircon in the restaurant.

The gem of the South China Seas

Had a really great holiday with the family at this LOVELY resort. We drove in from Kuala Lumpur and arrived after a 3-hour pleasant drive towards the east coast and found the location of the resort through our GPS navigator without any difficulties. Upon arrival was greeted very pleasantly by a couple of doormen with wide, friendly smiles.

As we arrived early, we had to wait a while for our rooms to be ready, but the staff made us feel at home and shared with us with passion on what activities are available and where is what within the resort. We explored the resort and found it to be with a beach front that was so clean and beautiful with soft sands and blue seas!

The rooms were were assigned to were well appointed and very roomy. We loved the 'Malay' structure of it and felt really at home. They have two pools, one for adults only (due to it's depth) and one catering to all ages - which we frequented more.

We had meals in their sea-side Nelayan Restaurant and enjoyed the hospitality there led by Eddie who was very friendly.

The resort is not too far from other local attractions such as the Dungun bridge, Rantau Abang beach and the Dungun Market. But we preferred to stay more within the resort!

All in all - this resort is highly recommended! We just can't wait to return for another getaway!

Good rest

I was here in April 2019 with my 2 adult children. We extended our stay because my son want to do snorkeling activities. Great hospitality ( especially Jasmine ) - restaurant staff . The only resort ( among those that I went ) which I can really get some good rest ! But on our last day , ( a housekeeping staff ) knocked noisily and rough on our room just to send us some invoices! ( I thought it’s emergency) . Overall ..good . The only thing need to put some effort on maintaining the garden surrounding ( most plants look dying and not growing well ) .

Most Amazing Resort in the Whole Wide World

Amazing spa resort.  We have returned to this resort for 17 times and for last few years we said, 'not again'.  But, 2019 we cannot tear ourselves and again feel amazing after a few days.

On this occasion we persuaded Brownlees to give it a ago followingJonny's Singapore Super League Triatholon victory. Absolutely bowled over by the villa, beauty, serenity and friendliness of the resort. Organised a quirky Mandi Bunga - Wedding Blessing for them.

How this resort stands out from other resort - the amazing welcome from day one to when you leave.  The warmth of the staff and the Sucimurni exercise class in the morning - sometimes with the staff - and the General Manager.

Had a really great few days at Tanjong Jara resort near Dungun. The resort was amazing in every way. There was an extra swimming pool for adults only which was very peaceful , the rooms were quiet and luxurious, the staff were lovely and very helpful. The food in the resturant was great and freshly prepared .
