Durian Chalet is a family style estate and you’ll probably find the family inside watching TV as the reception area doubles as their front porch.

Photo of Durian Chalet
While the location is away from the action, Durian is more inviting, comfort-wise than neighbouring Tahan Guest House, with simple chalets which are clean and have sheets provided on request. Attached bathrooms have western toilets with cold water showers and there is a fare amount of space between the chalets to allow guests a bit of privacy. Their rolling lawn has plenty of room for energetic kids to mix and mingle with a few of the local children who were scattered about when we visited. Shops and eateries as well as the Tembeling River banks are a pleasant but solid 10-minute walk away.
