Photo of Tahan Guest House
It is set right beside the main mosque, a short five- to 10-minute stroll from where the bus stops in Kuala Tahan. A very cute, vividly painted two-storey house, Tahan Guest House feels and looks like a far more playful joint than it really is. Rooms are functional, with squat, cold-water bathrooms and all have either a front- or rear-facing balcony. The paint scheme is pretty, but with no food on offer and no bedding (save a bottom sheet), it is a tad overpriced for the standard. If you’re travelling with kids, Tahan is a good option for the big lawn area they can run wild on, though as it is right beside the mosque, you’ll have a nice early start to the day. If you’re looking for something similar, but away from the mosque, keep walking for another 10 minutes to reach Durian Chalet, which has chalets and rooms at a similar price level, also in a garden setting but at the bottom of a bit of a valley.
