Excellent hotel! Very well maintained, beautiful gardens, spotless and comfortable room. Staff efficient, helpful and friendly. Delicious breakfast buffet. Two restaurants were open when we were there. The Nelayan offered more french style cuisine (a bit heavy) and the Atas Sungei cooked the meal after your wishes - asian cuisine, stir-frys etc. was very good. We had our own car to go on day trips - the hotel is isolated but organizes trips with a guide.
Wireless internet only in the open lobby aera - but has a lot of cosy corners you can make yourself comfortable. If you are on a vacation you don't need to be connected all the time....
We loved the location. The staff was superior and accomodating. All questions I had were answered promptly before arriving. We had a wonderful view from our fabulous room. Relaxing. We can't wait to go back for a longer stay.
First I called directly ytl to book,but they said there was no room. When I checked Booked.net I found 20 available room!
The resort is truly one place to relax and enjoy all that nature has to offer and yet have the benefit of a 5 star comfort! However, the most outstanding aspect of this resort is the quality of the staffs there. The most friendliest, helpful and pleasant team of staffs I have ever experienced !
The drive there can be pretty long, but with a break at Kuantan town for lunch really makes a lot of difference, especially traveling with young kids.
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, lovely grounds, free wi fi in reception.Our room had lovely views and good amenities.
the main pool area was 1.60 meters deep, not good for nervous/poor swimmers. The adult pool only had a very small area of 1.2 meters.Isolated no restaurants within easy walking as set in what seemed parkland. We actually did not like the talking menu, it makes it difficult to peruse and you can be persuaded by chef to have a meal not totally as one would wish
Good facilities, staff and food/drink
Expensive alcohol - no scuba or snorkeling during monsoon which was not announced nor is mentioned anywhere on website or elsewhere
Great resort, well maintained and very comfortable. We had booked for four days and were upgraded to an Anjung room: fabulous! Staff is very helpful, friendly and accomodating. Nice restaurant concept: chef Ann discusses the menu of the day at your table. You can join her to the market in the morning as well. Spa is very good: both my wife and I enjoyed an excellent treatment! Beach is nice and quiet. Two pools; one for adults only (although this pool is used for diving lessons as well). Free internet. A wonderfull place to relax and be pampered!
Prices are firm, far above Malaysian avarage. Almost no alternative dining options around, not much to see in the area either. The time needed to get drinks served is often too long.
The beach . The hotel design . This hotel is good for Honymoon.
Nothiong around the hotel. Resturent is too expensive. No sport on the sea.
The resort is set in a very traditional Malay style. The staff are the best I have experienced in Malaysia,very polite,friendly and welcoming. Lovely pool area.
Might need more food selection. Food remains quite expensive.
exceptional place with top service, great location and a stunning sea view from our room (15xx). to us, among THE TOP RESORTS in Malaysia.
prices of restaurants are at european level, but food is pretty outstanding as well!
We returned because of the hospitality we received last.
this is the second time we spent our holiday in TJ resort. we were very disappointed. 1) the room has smell. lack of maintenance. 2) the air condition leaks. the day bed turns brown; yet it was not changed. 3) the room aint cold enough with the air condition. reckon maintenance is required. 4) the pool is full od sun block oil. we requested for the pool to be cleaned up overnight. it was not done. 5) very limited seats for out door activities. e.g. we were trying to book for batique painting and was told the booking is full. in actual fact, there was only 2pax had booked. 6) front desk services was rather rude speaking in other language cursing the visitors.
very attentive staffs, luxury, & relaxing.
wild life around, good beach, brilliant staff
high prices for eating and no places o eat outside hotel
The beach is scenic and lovely for early morning walks. Accommodation is comfortable. Infinity pool overlooking the beach gave a breathtaking view.
Range of food menu/choices and speed of service delivery at the restaurants can be better.
