I booked to stay in the hostel and they kept messing around with my booking but eventually confirmed it a few weeks before. It was a bit bizarre to get a welcome drink and cold towel and then be placed in a rather run down hostel. The air conditioning worked well but the toilets need renovating and I had hoped...

We stayed at Mutiara for three nights. Place is ideally located for visiting the national park. The stuff is very friendly and super polite. Only service at the restaurant was little slow and not attentive enough. You could have come and sat there without anybody bothering for 10 minutes easily. The food at the restaurant although quite costly was ok...

This hotel while on the expensive side is definitely the only place to base yourself when venturing into Taman Negara. Basically you are already in the Park. The food is great! Book a guide if your stay is short to ensure you don't miss anything. We had a family chalet. It was enough for 2 nights and the kids enjoyed...

Cute little chalet, good A/C! Great place base yourself to visit the rain forest. Night walk wasn't really worth it but the trek and boat ride were good. Staff very friendly, food pretty good. We booked through Han Travel, they were good, mad drivers though!

The rooms are in fairly good condition (great mattress) and the bathrooms had been recently renovated. The food was ordinary, but was better than much of the food on the east side of Malaysia. But the jungle is amazing and this is a great place to see it. Well maintained trials leave right from the resort, including one to a...

Perfect accomodation to spend some time in the oldest rainforest!! Staff was super friendly and helpful, Chalets are spaceous, clean and in the middle of the rainforest. You can watch monkeys, birds,.. directly from your balcony. The perfect spot for nature lovers!!! Thanks for the great time, hope to see you soon! ;) Luke & Mrs Julia

After the devastating flood last December that forced the resort to temporarily shut down, Mutiara Taman Negara is back in business. The location -- next to the vast Taman Negara national park -- is unbeatable. Hides scattered throughout the park give visitors the chance to see deers, wild pigs, sunbears, flying lemurs, monitor lizards, tigers, elephants and more.

A little overpriced, but it's the only hotel in the National Park, so it's understandable, I guess. Very nice and kind staff, clean chalets and good view (especially compared to the other accommodations). The best thing is the hotel garden: the jungle!

This hotel is situated at the edge of the jungle. To enter it, you first need to climb a fair set of stairs. Our bungalow was stunning! We had a gorgeous tree right next to our door and a clean porch. We enjoyed our stay in the bungalow because of the king size bed, good working AC and clean bathroom....

We stayed in May 2014 for 2 nights in Mutiara. The place is beautifully nestled in the forest and you have to take a 3 hour boat ride to reach there. The cottage we stayed in was very comfy and the bathroom too was huge and well-equipped. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The food was ok, nothing special...

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
