This is a 3-star hotel where the rooms are all in single storey blocks. It doesn't have as many trees as Mutiara Taman Negara but its prices are much less too! I booked our 4D3N room and food package through Grand Reception (604-3998818) and got a very good bargain, paying only RM380 per pax. You have to be a member of Grand Reception though.

We were also given a room with a double bed and a single bed although we paid only for a standard room with 2 single beds.

The room is cleaned early daily and they give you fresh toiletries daily too. Overall, cleanliness is good but the bathroom walls do need some scrubbing.

There is no jug kettle or hair dryer so bring your own especially since you may need to wash your hair late at night after the night activities.

Unique Qualities: Friendly staff who are very accomodating to requests. Hotel guests can easily get free van shuttle to & from the jetty (where everything is). We were also able to use this shuttle service to go to R&R to book our bus ticket to Butterworth.

Although it is in Kuala Tahan, it is situated farther from the jetty, about 500 m away and is quiet and peaceful. Behind it is the jungle.

There was no jug kettle to boil water but we were able to refill our water bottles at every meal time at the hotel's Dedari Restaurant.

Address: Kuala Tahan, Pahang.
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: From the main jetty, phone the resort for free shuttle service.
