Tanjong Jara Resort

Tanjong Jara Resort in Dungun, Malaysia, offers boutique style and great diving.

On the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, this boutique resort pays tribute to Malay tradition, with its contemporary take on indigenous architecture and a philosophy based on Sucimurni, which focuses on the purification of the body and spirit. As for the main reason Tanjong Jara made this list, its Water Sports Centre (complete with PADI dive instruction) is just a short speedboat ride away on Tenggol Island in the Terengganu Marine Park, home to pristine coral gardens and singular marine life. The island features more than twenty dive spots that showcase the area's diversity, from the spectacular Amazing Grace, filled with turtles and blue-spotted stingrays, to Moonraker, boasting hard coral structures up to ten meters tall.
