Taking a boathouse as our hotel was an excellent decision. Back to nature experiencing is amazing, something that you'll never forget. Food even though was just a simple menu but was very tasty. Service by the crew members was awesome. Highly recommended

This is one of our favourite hotels in Malaysia. It's location lies beside a reservoir amidst the mountain rainforest of the area. Once dusk has come you can sit and listen to the noise of frogs and other night creatures of the forest. The reception has now been moved to a building beside the car park. Charming helpful professional staff... More

Basically I agree to most of the German reviews about unmotivated staff, nothing much to do and definitely overpriced tours. Can be done cheaper just around the corner btw. Unfortunately it ia the only place to stay and there is no real choice. The breakfast is average and the maid took until 15h to show up to do the beds.... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights on a full board package. The staff were all very friendly with ready smiles. However, while that is pleasant, it does not equate with superior hospitality. We found that the team needs to polish their hospitality skills. It seems the staff operate in silos - one department (e.g. reception) cannot give... More

It's been a few years since my first and last trip to Belum Rainforest Resort, so I was quite keen to see how it had transformed, if at all.

We decided to visit Belum Rainforest Resort after Hari Raya just before returning back to work. On arrival, the check in was smooth, despite previous reviews saying that the staff was inefficient. This maybe due to midweek stay. We booked 2 rooms, one is a superior room and the other one is the garden suite. The superior room is spacious,... More
