“Absolutely beautiful location, amazing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

We stayed at Belum Eco Resort in March and had an amazing experience. Even the initial boat trip to the island is exciting, as you set off from the jetty you leave behind all the noise and pollution and really feel the rainforest start to surround you!

When you arrive at the resort after about 30mins on the boat, the first thing you see is the restaurant perched on one end of the island overlooking the lake and forest. This really is a spectacular place to eat your breakfast every morning! Steve the owner is a really nice guy and always kept us entertained over dinner with a story about the local wildlife or how he built the resort, which made us feel so welcome and at home here.

We were staying in their dormitory which has western style toilets and hot showers attached and even has a balcony overlooking the lake! The best dorm we had stayed in for a long time (the dorms in KL didnt even have a window). They also have private chalets available which are built in the style of the local asli tribes and also have private balconies and showers.

We went on a trip to visit the local asli village and also got the chance to see a Rafflesia flower in bloom. The moment that really made our whole experience here however was on a jungle trek, we managed to track a heard of wild elephants. Not something for the faint hearted but truly a once in a lifetime experience!

Even just back at the resort we had a great time swimming in the lake (the best pool available!) and kayaking and just sitting and looking out at the scenery surrounding us. There really is something for everyone, but dont come here expecting 5 star facilities (e.g. fans but no AC, no room service), they are on an island in the middle of the rainforest!....if you want somewhere to get away, relax and have serious fun in the most beautiful nature then this is a perfect place to stay.
