Fantastic rainforest settingPosted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: Location and range of activities that were offered.
Cons: Service in the restaurant was slow.
Location: Amazing rainforest setting- allsorts of activities. Lovely range of authentic floating restaurants across the river- great value.
We had a great time at Mutiara Taman Negara. The chalet was comfortable and setting unbeatable, being right in the national park. We enjoyed a jungle trek and the canopy walkway. The highlight was definitely the boat tour to Lata Tenak which was beautiful.

AdventurePosted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: Clean, courteous staff.the layout of the hotel took into consideration of the environment
Location: Canopy walk, definitely the rapid shoots
The hotel was in taman negara. It was convenient and the staff was so helpful and accommodating. Our guide , Kadril for our adventure, was so knowledgeable. He adjusted his pace to the group's fitness ability. His insight to the surroundings helped my children appreciate the environment.

Beautiful nature, unbelievably exotic insects.Posted Jun 25, 2014
Pros: A convenient, fairly priced, comfortable living quarters with amazing access to the forest, allows round the clock access without having to wait for r
Cons: Hotel wifi needs to be fixed.
The hotel was set in tranquil nature with it's backyard in a 130 million year old park. River tours led through rocky shallow rapids to deeper peaceful waters with giant trees overhanging the river. Saw lots of huge exotic insects - cicada, katydids, praying mantis, bird eating spider, hunter spiders, all huge. Tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable, the Orang Asli are impressive in their adaptation and ease in living harmoniously with the rainforest, the canopy walk was humbling in displaying the sheer size of the trees. The 2 story bungalow was spacious and only a short walk from the reception. A one ringgit 2 minute boat ride brings you across the river to a number of floating restaurants and the village grocery shop.

You need a boat to get there... fyiPosted Jun 7, 2014
Pros: proximity to nature
Cons: the roads that lead there are in bad condition. The smell and water in the cabins need to be looked at.
Location: There is so much to do you need a few days here. Really excellent for kids by the way.
Well, you don't have much to choose from so this is the best for this area. Speaking of area, please please be careful driving to the compound. The roads are in horrible condition and you can easily pop a tire or worse. Oh, and you need a boat to get to the hotel, which we didn't know and looked rather dumbfounded on how we could get the car across the river!! The restaurant was good (and yes it has liquor- for anyone traveling in Malaysia knows that's hard to find). The cabins were a mix of emotions. Very cool to be so close to nature, however the water in the rooms utterly dirty and unfit to use and there was an odor of sorts when we first came in. The AC helped to alleviate it. However it was amazing to run into the Tamir Deer (which looks like a mix between an elephant and panda... aka Pandaphant). We also had a huge gecko living under the cabin and monkey's were occasionally above. Just surrounded by wonder!

Great jungle stayPosted May 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Location of the hotel is great, the only one in the park so you feel a little more in the jungle than the other side of the river. Staff were helpful and friendly. The chalet was spacious, clean and very comfortable. A bit of luxury after a day of jungle hiking is very welcome! Would stay here again if we come back to Taman Negara.

Your own personal zoo at your doorstepPosted May 19, 2014
Pros: Spacious rooms, air conditioning, great restaurant, and activity centre.
Cons: Keep up the good work!
Location: Jungle exploration, animal spotting, canopy walk, river boat trip, white water rafting and plenty more.
The chalets are fantastic. Big spacious and clean. The restaurant on the resort was great. They had a wide range of menu choices from malaysian to western food, pleasing everyones needs. There was a huge tapir that was friendly with the resort, fed just outside the restaurant so you could take millions of photos of it. The jungle is literally a minute away from your chalet with the canopy walk being a 15-30minute walk away. There are also two forest loops around the chalets which give you a great chance to view all the crazy insects and lizards there. Definitely worth a visit, especially at this wonderful resort with very friendly and helpful staff.

Short wekend tripPosted Apr 21, 2014
stayed here for 2 nights for activities in the jungle. room was decent with nice ambience. only grouch was the water pressure was wayyyy too low. to illustrate, when u tilt the shower head upside down, the pressure was enough to push the water about 3.5 inches high. my shower which would usually take 10 minutes became a 30 minute affair because of that.

Beautiful location - some staff are clueless, thouPosted Mar 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
The chalets themselves are beautiful, being quiet and many with great views (ours backed onto the jungle itself). However, there was wholesale confusion as to whether breakfast and/or dinner were included. The front desk insisted that neither were, but the restaurant told us that they were. After deliberately going across the river for more reasonably priced food options, it turns out that breakfast AND dinner were both included, contradicting our booking sheet which stated that breakfast would incur extra charges.

There's no better place to stay in Taman NegaraPosted Feb 17, 2014
Alright, yeah there's no better place to stay in Taman Negara but that's not saying much. The resort is very nicely laid out but it needs a thorough renovation. The rooms are great at the outset but need complete overhaul with regards to the bedding, furniture, lighting and overall decor. The bedding especially needs to be upgraded. Our mattress and sheets were so worn out that I asked the staff to remove everything and replace it. The bathrooms were great (clearly newly renovated) but it would have been nice if someone had told us that the water heater needs to be turned on first. Everything is connected to the electricity as there is no gas in the area. Oh and I am sure everyone has complained ad nauseum about the lack of Internet access outside of the lobby. All was not bad though. The restaurant serves splendidly prepared meals at a very reasonable price. We came to Taman Negara after an eight hour long journey (drive + wait + boat ride) and it was an incredibly refreshing change with regards to food. Tip: Skip the standard boat. Pay the extra funds and take the hotel boat which takes just 2 hours as opposed to 3 for the standard boat. The hotel boat also docks at the hotel dock which is across from regular area for travelers. I didn't see anything noticeable or special along the way for a very long three hours! We just took a taxi directly back to KLIA for RM 400. Don't rent the taxi from the hotel. Book directly from Kuala Tembeling. Ask around.
