Hotel Overview

Where

A long way from the crowds, on a quiet peninsula engulfed by 4,343 square kilometres of virgin jungle.

Rooms at Mutiara Taman Negara

Many of the rustic bungalows and chalets overlook the majestic Tembeling River, and while some are large enough for families, others are more intimate and perfect for couples. From your veranda you may well be able to spot some of the rainforest's incredible wildlife, from macaques to porcupine and the super-cute slow loris.

Food and Facilities

At the relaxed Seri Mutiara Restaurant you can dine on Asian and Western cuisine. With no walls, the restaurant has a lovely al-fresco feel, and the wonderful Malaysian climate means you can dine in warmth long after sunset. At its centre, the restaurant has a small bar, where you can enjoy a cocktail or two accompanied by the sounds of the rainforest.

Activities at Mutiara Taman Negara

Following the walking trails, you're likely to see huge troops of monkeys high up in the treetops and tropical birds squawking the soundtrack of the jungle. Though the large mammals tend to remain hidden, you may well come across tiger footprints or evidence of elephants crashing through the thickets. Among its natural wonders, the rainforest hides some beautiful waterfalls, where you can bathe in pristine, glistening waters. From the 40 metre high canopy walkway (the world’s longest), the jungle vistas are simply spectacular, and on a boat cruise you can explore your sublime surroundings by river.
