Mutiara Taman Negara Resort is the official hotel of Taman Negara National Park, providing comfortable semi-budget accommodation in rustic jungle lodges next to its headquarters. Designed after traditional village homes in Malaysia, the chalets are nestled on stilts around a lush garden, with views that overlook its rainforest surroundings and Tembeling river. It's also not uncommon to see semi-tame wild animals linger here, accustomed to the presence of people (and their food). Squirrels, porcupines, deer, wild boar and even tapirs can be seen relaxing under the shade of trees or foraging the garden plants and fruits. Each chalet comes equipped with air-conditioning, hot shower and private balcony deck.
