Glad we stumbled upon this place because its an absolute gem.. Green hills on small islands with calm peaceful green waters. Its a great place to just chill and do nothing and enjoy the view - no Wifi or phone reception. We stayed in "A type chalet" which sits on the hill overlooking the lake. Outside the room there's a lovely balcony and shower. Toilets are to be shared. The rooms are simple with electricity provided from 7pm to 8 am. No TV or radios but the view from the chalet makes up for the lack of the idiot box.

The view was simply breathtaking and we could have just as easily sat in bed/ balcony and do nothing for the whole day. The resort provides for meals and activities. There's a hike up to the watch tower (where you may stumble upon an elephant) and to the water falls. We however were easily satisfied with the breeze and view. Would definitely recommend this place to those looking for some peace and quiet or to those who want to run from the crazy hectic city life.. Would definitely come again to just unwind and finish up those unread books!!

P/s - Bring your own bottle of wine as the resort does not provide for alcohol and your own towels.

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.
