4 hours by van and another 3 hours by motorized canoe brings you to this very nice lodge/resort in the midst of Taman Negara National Park. It's a steep climb up to the resort leads to the main buildings and cabins but there is a tram of sorts to carry luggage. The reception is efficient and the staff are very pleasant, providing friendly service throughout the resort.
The rooms are comfortably furnished and well serviced. The food is buffet (or one can also take a package without meals and order off the menu) and pretty bland but one does not come here for the food; the resort is in a tropical forest and across a river when judging Mutiara against other hotels. Taking advantage of the massage is highly recommended. For a fraction of the price elsewhere one can receive a fantastic full body massage or variations thereof.
This is a wonderful place to observe the jungle at close quarters. Everyone works hard to provide guests with the best possible experience.
A most enjoyable four day stay.

The arrival here is unusual to say the least. From the drop off point one takes a long- boat ferry across the river to Mutiara Taman Negara. A steep climb up to the Resort leads to a view of the main buildings and chalets. The reception is efficient and one immediately gains the impression that the staff are pleased to see you, this friendly service is reelected throughout the resort..
Our chalet, No 12, was very conveniently located; close to the bar and restaurant with a fine view over the river. The rooms were comfortably furnished and well serviced.
The manager, Mr Rohan Bin Idris, is on the top of his game, his management style is very 'hands-on' and he quickly deals with guest's questions providing satisfactory answeres.
The food is varied and, considering that the logistic problems involved, very good.
It should be remembered that the resort is in a tropical forest and across a river when judging Mutiara against other hotels.
This is a wonderful place to observe the jungle at close quarters. Everyone works hard to provide guests with the best possible experience.
A most enjoyable three day stay.

Room Tip: Chalet No 12 is very convenient.

It's situated beside the river banks right inside the forest. No worries if you have luggage as there's a trolley pull up that will be managed by the hotel staff. When you check in at the counter, you will be greeted with a complimentary drink and fresh cold towel. Stayed here in December 2017 and booked a Family Chalet. There are few activities that can be done here but permit is needed and you can purchase them from the Park Ranger office. We only did a few activities there. Firstly is the canopy walk which is quite a distance from the hotel. It's only open if there is no rain to prevent unwanted incident and they are only open till 5pm. We also went for night trekking which is just behind the hotel. There are pathways but torchlight is a must as it's complete darkness. Get a tour guide if you need as we didn't engage one and just go on our own and just walk blindly and missing those explanations but you can join in some other groups that do engaged one. If you are lucky, you might find one or two fireflies flying around. Another activity that can be done is rapid shooting is a must in which the boatmen will bring you to cruise along the river against the rapid stream and will bring you to visit the aboriginal settlements. Do be warned that you will be extremely wet so do bring a dry bag to place all your belongings inside. For meals, you can dine at the hotel's restaurant or just cross over the river to eat at the floating restaurant by the river bank but they are not open for dinner.

This was my husband’s favourite stay out of the six we did on our Thailand & Malaysia holiday. I was not so keen (hence the score), as I felt as though some of the jungle critters were sharing our log cabin (chalet) at night. Entered into it in the right spirit, this is a unique location.

PROS:
+ riverside location in a beautiful jungle setting
+ easy access to boardwalk trails and jungle canopy walk
+ evening a la carte restaurant food is good
+ on-site shop for snacks, drinks, etc

CONS:
- inadequate information was provided as to how to get to the property (you have to park on the other side of the river in a public car park and catch a boat with your luggage to the dock that is in front of the hotel [charge 1RM per person per single trip] and then climb about 50 steep steps [luggage is taken up by pulley/rail cart])
- Wi-fi is only available in the restaurant area (but is of reasonable quality considering the remote location)
- it’s a bit gloomy inside the chalet, as the lighting is more subtle than utilitarian
- gaps in boarded chalet walls meant small bugs could get into the chalet
- I noticed a gecko using a wall vent as access to our bedroom area
- loud, incessant bird calls through the night (yes, it’s a jungle out there!)

In conclusion, a memorable stay, but not one I would wish to repeat.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mutiara Taman Negara. The little huts are confortable and blend in the surrounding jungle. The activities were fun and interesting (boardwalk, night walk, river boat and tribe village) and our guide Rahzalee was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Our hut was a good trek from the restaurant and we had a lot of rain, but there are umbrellas in the huts. The food was average, but we were here to see the nature and we thoroughly enjoyed the viewing platform near our hut.
