OVERVIEW ON THAMALAKANE RIVER LODGE IN MAUN

Thamalakane River Lodge offers en-suite stone chalets, some with private splash pools positioned in the shade of the riverine forest, overlooking the river. Chalets, public areas and our swimming pool take advantage of the 180 degree view of the riverbanks lined with fluttering reeds visited by an ever changing array of water fowl and birds. It is a delightful place to come home to after a day spent exploring. Its widely acclaimed restaurant serves a la carte meals from an ever changing menu. Dusk is spectacular, with the sun setting the river ablaze as is slowly dips behind the trees.
