Tanjong Jara Resort

The philosophy of Sucimurni — the restoration of the body and spirit — is the inspiration for this elegant resort on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, where guests unwind amid contemporary architecture that pays tribute to Malay tradition. Rejuvenation ranges from treatments at the soothing Spa Village to adventures at the Water Sports Centre, located just a short speedboat ride away on Tenggol Island in Terengganu Marine Park. PADI open water certification can be arranged in this pristine region, where more than 20 dive spots boast an extraordinary diversity of marine life. Filled with blue-spotted stingray, Amazing Grace is a favorite destination, while Moonraker inspires awe with hard coral structures 30 feet tall.
