Terengganu is one of Peninsular Malaysia's gems in terms of travel destinations. It's home to many gorgeous islands, but there are some other wonderful spots to be discovered, and one of them is Tanjong Jara Resort!

Located along the tranquil Tanjung Jara beach located north of Kuala Dungun, this luxury resort promises a stay within heritage-rich splendour. Inspired by the architecture of 17th-century Malay palaces, the resort features a collection of rooms and villas made out of local timber and decorated with local and traditional-inspired furnishings. The resort is located right by a quiet stretch of beach, so you can expect to be blown away by beautiful views of the ocean ?

Choose from one their beautiful room styles, with names like Bumbung, Serambi, and Anjung (the Malay names for areas and sections within a traditional Malay house). Opt for one of the seaview rooms to wake up to views of the ocean, or for something a little special, get the Anjung room which directly faces the beachfront.

You can't miss out on indulging in a relaxing spa treatment from the award-winning Spa Village at the resort. Offering treatments like urutan gamelan (traditional Malay massage) to boros puteri (facial and body scrub) muka berseri-seri (Malay facial), you'll have a pampering session fit for royalty. But if that's not your thing, don't worry, there are plenty of other fun activities that will suit anybody and everybody's interests. Visit the resort's turtle hatchery, take a day trip to nearby Tenggol island for a diving adventure, go jungle trekking to Chemerung Waterfall, or go for a guided bicycle tour!

The resort also offers signature experiences such as cooking classes on Malay cuisine. But when all else fails, nothing beats going for a leisurely stroll on the beach or just lounging out by one of their pools.

Tanjong Jara Resort currently has a few different offers available, including a special package for Malaysian residents which comes inclusive of all meals, or their Room & Fabulous Breakfast package which includes breakfast as well as a guided Jara Hill walk. There's also a yoga retreat scheduled at the resort currently being offered (2 -4 Oct), which comes inclusive of a 3D2N stay inclusive of meals and yoga classes!

Rate: From RM850 on their website (for the yoga retreat, it's RM699++ for a 3D2N retreat to be held on 2 - 4 Oct)
