Where to Stay in Kuala Kurau

Kuala Kurau has enough charm to be a pleasant place to stay overnight, especially if you have come for seafood. Luckily there are a few very good accommodation options in town.

Best Kuala Kurau Hotels

  1. The Kurau Inn Farmstay is just outside of town near the northern access to Kuala Kurau bridge and is surrounded by quaint paddies and countryside. The rooms are top-notch for the price, and it has a private swimming pool. A perfect place to stay with families. Check prices and book here.
  2. Ikan Kurau is very central and comes recommended. Housed inside a charming local home set on the river on Jalan Pantai, it has a bit of everything, from modestly priced flashpacker dorms (from RM 38 per pax) to very cozy street or river view doubles. The latter cost more at RM 228 per night. You can also rent the whole place for up to 12 people at a cost of RM 600 per night. Note that prices go up a bit on holidays and weekends.
  3. Kurau Bay Hotel in Bagan Seberang is a proper full-scale hotel with 24 rooms. Catering mostly to local tourists, it has all the bells and whistles you need to stay in comfort along the riverfront. They also organize boat and fishing cruises on the Kurau river.
