We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Malaysia from the UK. The short boat trip across the river which is the only way of getting there was a little traumatic as I had quite a heavy case. This was a problem to get in and out of the boat and the boatman was not impressed at all, it was... More

We stayed here for a few nights and it far surpassed my expectations. Wonderful setting right in the rainforest,lovely clean bungalows, very friendly staff and with the little village a 2 minute boat ride away (we never awaited more than 20 secs for a boat). We mostly ate in the village, just to get a proper feel for the place,... More

If you want to live inside the jungle of Taman Negara and still want the luxary of Water, AC and a nice bed to sleep in, this is the place. You can sleep at other Places on the other side of the river, but then you have to cross the river each time. It is quite expensive though. So be... More

Our stay here was great, it was worth it to pay a little more than the other hotels, it's the best hotel there. It costs RM1 per person to cross the river and then you have to go upstairs with your luggage but they have a kind of elevator box to lift up the heavy ones for you. They welcome... More

The hotel is cashing in on its location and the fact that there are not many other options in the area. The rooms are in dire need of renovation, as the furniture must be at least 20 years old and is worn and shabby, i.e. crooked lamps, stained sofa covers, holes in bed linen, paint stains on floors and furniture,...

Mutiara Taman Negara is probably the best hotel you can get in Taman Negara. Right in the midst of the jungle, you get to stay in the chalets of good standard. Room comes with nice clean bed. Bathroom is basic with shower although the water pressure is relatively good. Use the complimentary bottled water for drinking. There is an iron,... More

We were a family of 6 with 4 adults and 2 children (6 & 10 years). We stayed in a connecting family chalet and single chalet. The resort itself was great - the rooms comfortable and roomy enough for 4 to share. We stayed 2 nights - if you want to get all the tours in (the resort does a... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Mutiara Taman Negara. The hotel is a perfect place for discovering the jungle. We did the jungle walk incl. the canopy walk and a boats tour the next day. For the canopy walk it is not necessary to hire a guide. Just follow the trek and nothing can go wrong...The hotel is a bit... More

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
