Mutiara Burau Bay nestles at a secluded location on Teluk Burau. The resort is also partially fronting Pantai Kok (or Kok Beach). A very interesting resort concept overall.
All rooms in Mutiara Burau Bay Resort are of cabaña units of either studio or 1-bedroom, as well as two well-appointed suites. Certainly a good prelude to the theme life-is-a-beach this Mutiara resort is trying to sell.
The swimming pool is small by any standard. But a 2-minute walk away lies the decent beach of Burau Bay, a long sandy area for sunbathing and swimming. Also this resort dwells on its tagline "...in the forest by the bay" quite nicely. I saw a lot of signboard of describing the local plants and animals that could be found in the resort compound. Pretty neat!
The room is fairly decent. A good compact design. At least everyone has their own separate unit to boot. It comes with a price though, ie: much smaller bathroom. Looking at the bathroom size, I wonder if any mere mortals who are horizontally challenged could ever find a breathing space in there.
I tried the BBQ at the Seri Mutiara Restaurant & Terrace. Fabulous food I must admit. Loved the chicken satay and grilled squids. Although these hot selling items went pretty quickly. Overall, the service at Mutiara Burau Bay is within my expectation. I had a lovely time here.
Swimming pool, tennis courts, table tennis, cyber café, mini bar, satellite TV, hair dryer, IDD phone, coffee making facility, Seri Mutiara Restaurant, Seashell Beach Café, Oyster Bar & Lounge, Sampan Bar, Bayside Wine Cellar, etc.
Fronting the resort is the beautiful Burau Bay. Some 5 minutes away are Oriental Village, a themed shopping area, as well as the famous cable car ride to Gunung Mat Chinchang. Adjacent to Burau Bay is Pantai Kok and the brand-new Telaga Harbour, which houses fancy waterfront restaurants, fashion stores and a yacht berth.
Walk-in rates start at RM215 per night for a Run-of-the-House cabaña unit. A slightly bigger "Family" cabaña unit starts at about RM300 per night.
