Mutiara Taman Negara Resort
Kuala Tahan, Jerantut (09 266 3500/2200/ www.mutiarahotels.com). First things first – you’re in the middle of the jungle so there will definitely be mosquitoes and possibly monkeys on the balcony. That being said, we like Mutiara’s family-sized chalets with bunk beds for the kids, living area for card games, and the fact that the staff greet each guest like a long lost friend. Best of all, the hotel organises well-guided trips into Taman Negara that are thoroughly enjoyable for both adults and kids aged five years and above.
