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

Very friendly place with lots of activities to keep you occupied. The trip to the Orang Asli village is very informative. The restaurant is good with good food for all. The chalets are very good, but they should seal off the gap between the roof and false ceiling- a monitor

In the middle of the jungle, you are not going to miss anything at this hotel: great service, kind staff, very good food with buffet or a la carte and all of that with monkeys and squirrels around you. Priceless. In top of that: i forgot my wallet in my room and a guide brought

So, after turning up to the resort after a four hour drive from KL it transpired that the booking I thought I had made for a family chalet was for exactly 1 month later than I thought... The hotel staff kindly made every effort to accommodate us even though the resort was full.

Is there a self service laundry in this Resort?
None available but echoing the previous comment - laundries are very inexpensive

We drove back to KL and flew to Penang. It’s roughly a 4-5 hour drive - the resort sorted out private transfers for us.

Hi we arrived by taxi, but no problem. Just drive to the ferry and you will find a spot; it’s not so crowded and rather easy to find your way around

"Ask for a room close to reception, some rooms are quite far from the restaurant and reception."
"Bigger chalets are nicer and nearer to the reception is better as it is a big site"
"If you want a quiet cabin stay away from the public areas"
"Ask for Bungalow (4 persons) House nr 8, which is very close to the reception and restaurant"
"Chalet No 12 is very convenient."
US$68 - US$185 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
