This hotel is ideally located for exploring in the rainforest. True the accommodations are rustic and the rooms minimal and the upkeep could be a bit better but we would stay there again for the experience of being so close to the jungle. We enjoyed walking to our cabin from the reception area, the fun of sitting on the balcony... More

My sister and I stayed four days and three nights at Mutiara in the last week of July (during the last few days of Ramadan). To save ourselves some money, we opted to stay in the hostel rather than the chalet. Hostel rooms are supposed to hold eight people. To Mutiara's credit, I have to say: 1) The airconditioning in...

This is the only hotel that is in the rainforest itself, and the start of most of the trails etc. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was a bit hit and miss. I had a burger on my first night, which was underwhelming. However, due to the lack of choice on the menu I had it again... More

Kuala Tahan is a very small village and The Mutiara is the only "real" hotel there. To get to the hotel you must park your car and take one of the small boats across the river, which is just one Ringit per person and there are tons of boats. The hotel mostly has wooden chalets, which are basic compared to... More

Been to this resort recently and I would say this is one of the best place to spend time at Taman Negara. The staffs are awesome and location is strategic. The canopy walk, rapid shooting and visiting to "orang asli" indeed a good experience.

We spent two nights at this hotel with our two teenagers. We packed the 5 available jungle activities in 1.5 days. The highlight was the night walk when we saw the giant tarentula. Our guide was good, but had limited english. Our chalet was basic but clean with a balcony and the jungle right in front of you. The highlight... More

We landed here in the evening with a long drive from KL. The place was good nice location. you would need a boat to cross over the river to get to the resort. The manager seems to be a nice guy. Cautions: You don't have any 7 eleven stores anywhere near by so Bring your own stuff. Bears are cheap... More

As the hotel is in the park itself it's the place to stay. If you're driving, you can drive down to the jetty area to offload your cases rather than having to carry them down the steps..not easy in the heat! The boat will take you across to the hotel and park for one ringgit pp. Food at the hotel... More

When travelling to Taman Negara with a small child, you don't have a lot of options beside this very luxurious resort inside the national park. Very spacious chalets with a lot of comfort, but check the special offers online before you arrive. The staff is friendly but not very straightforward. Special thanks for the manager who helped us out with... More

The place was awesome. We had great fun. Away from the city for two night gave us a breath of fresh air. We rented the bungalow and it was amazing. The food was expensive, but you can always cross the river to get cheaper food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mutiara Taman Negara Resort, PahangDiscover the wonders of an ancient forest at Mutiara Taman Negara. Pitch tent or check-into this forest reserve and bask in the natural surroundings of the Taman Negara park. Mutiara Taman Negara, an eco-tourism Resort that offers a variety of accommodation types promises guests this unique experience with basic amenities and sufficient modern comforts. A virgin jungle expanse covering 4,343 square kilometres, Taman Negara was established in 1939 and is the largest park in peninsular Malaysia reputed to be The Best Kept Tropical Rainforest, thanks to its protected status. With minimal damage to this special ecosystem, Mutiara Taman Negara is dimly lit to avoid scaring off wildlife and conserves energy. Everything used is biodegradable and all the wooden chalet interiors are made of natural produce. Guests at Mutiara Taman Negara will wake to the drone of cicadas, the chirping of bird species new to them and a myriad of other unfamiliar sounds that form a consistent cacophony unique to rainforests. You will begin their adventure at your door step or veranda which makes a perfect perch especially for nocturnal sightings. Sighting wildlife outside the chalet is a norm and the fruit season attracts the most number of wildlife, from the mischievous long tailed macaques, the beautiful chestnut-breasted malkoha and the thorny porcupine to the gentle slow loris. The ancient life forms that blanket Taman Negara are impressive and during each visit, Mutiara Taman Negara gives its visitors the opportunity to glimpse at the flora and fauna species estimated at 10,000 plants, 150,000 insects, 25,000 invertebrates, 675 birds, 270 reptiles, 250 freshwater fish and 200 mammals. Some of the flora and fauna found in Taman Negara are rare or indigenous to this country. If you are not travelling with a group, you can plan your trip to Mutiara Taman Negara well before you arrive or enlist the help of guides at the Park Centre. Things to do at Mutiara Taman Negara include river cruises, guided walks, bird watching, fishing, swimming by waterfalls and night safaris. The world’s longest suspended canopy walk is the most popular activity in this rainforest and you have to be prepared to queue for a while. Secured 40 metres above the forest floor, visitors have a good vantage point from here and if lucky, you can sight some curious animals. The only people who are allowed to hunt and forage are its original inhabitants, the Orang Asli people who still live a nomadic lifestyle. They farm, fish and hunt in the park and nowadays play host to curious visitors armed with flashy cameras. The women may shy away but the men folk can put on a show with some advance notice. Travelling to Mutiara Taman Negara, guests can either do the four hour scenic drive down or board a coach from a designated location in Kuala Lumpur for a 3 hour drive down followed by a 3 hour boat trip down river ... more   less
