We had reservations at this resort in the rain forest for the end of December of 2014. We received an E-mail from Han Travel and a note from the concierge at the Shangri-La hotel that there was severe flooding in that area and that the place was being evacuated by helicopter and canoes. We received a note from Hotels.com that...

We wanted to discover the rainforest and found this property suitable for the region. Although not a great option its just ok for an experience. The journey in the boat is too long and not so exciting after a point. The resort is widespread over an area but the cottages have no room service and telephone. Also very average rooms-dusty,...

We spent four nights here and really enjoyed the activity options and the ability to relax as well. Located along the river, just 2kms from the Canopy Walk, this retreat makes for a great location from which to explore the beautiful rainforest and its rivers. One can do the boardwalks or one can explore the terrain from some of the...

In our recent visit to Taman Negara, Malaysia, we stayed two nights at Mutiara Taman Negara. It is the only resort in the park, and thus if you wish to stay comfortably in the pristine primary jungle at Kuala Tahan, search no more! The first night we stayed in a two bedroom bungalow and the second night we stayed in...

It is situated in the middle of the world's oldest rainforest and yields an excellent variety of flora and fauna. Cosy and warm design, the chalets are situated at the edge of the forest and accessible by a short minute boat to cross the river for rm1/- per trip. An elegant open air restaurant with good food and friendly staff....

We stayed here in October and enjoyed our stay. The only negative was the rooms were a bit grubby and some new mattresses would be good as they were getting very soft. But really aside from that it was excellent, spacious bungalows, in the national park so easy to get out and about whenever we wanted to. Nice restaurant...we even...

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
