Remote but convenient
You name it and Han’s Rainforest Resort probably has it.
They have definitely raised the bar on Kuala Tahan accommodations, offering a multitude of various room types to suit many types of travellers. Although the rooms are of the simple and practical, white-walled and tile floor variety, they are clean as a whistle, and with the exception of the newer dorm options most of the older rooms have a large curtained window and sizeable beds. Under new management since January 2015, the self-declared eco resort is making steps to be as eco-friendly as possible as they slowly refurbish the original Rainforest Resort, by adding dorm options and recycled décor. They also utilise waterfall water for their showers. Beyond their sustainability goals, they also offer plenty of amenities and conveniences that make up for their slightly off the beaten path location. They have a bright modern mini mart and the only spa and massage offerings in Kuala Tahan -- a true blessing for anyone who has spent a day jungle trekking.
