Back to nature after months of lock down...an eco stay at the eco resort in an eco environment with a group of eco senior buddies....met up with the eco friendly owner (hubby and wife)...shared with us the experiences of staying in the island. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the resort and the activities there; swimming in the cold clean dam, fishing, canoeing, bird watching....
It’s hard to sum up the feeling of staying here. The property is beautiful, lush with plants, the cottages are so cozy, and with their own balconies and semi outdoor showers. The lake water was freshwater and warm for swimming. The hosts Steve and his wife were wonderful. The food was plentiful and delicious, many local dishes. The kids loved afternoon tea and cakes. But best of all was going on safari each day by boat and/or hike. Our guide Borhan was so knowledgeable and friendly and accommodating and took us to many different parts of the lake. We saw 2 packs of wild boars, hornbill birds, a monitor lizard, otters, a large fowl I can’t remover the name of, and a monkey. We saw all the signs of elephants, the dung, footprints, the mud on the trees where they scratch,…
We (2 adults, 3 Kids) stayed 4 nights at this unique place. Friendly staff, beautiful surroundings and welcoming feeling. The small huts are basic but comfortable with a small terrace with nice views over the lake. There is a big common area where you can hang around, drink tea, play games, look at the forrest and lake, talk and relax. Or go down to the lake to take a swim. We went on several trips with our good guide Burhan - saw a lot of elephant pooh(!), a group of wild boar, hornbill and many butterflies and other insects. This place is really made with love to the nature and an invitation to indulge and learn about the forrest.
My son and myself had wonderful time in Belum Eco Resort just before 2019 Christmas. My son's favorite was fishing and the hotel owner did everything for my son to succeed: we had the freshly caught by 9 years old fish for our dinner :). Eventually, Belum Eco Resort offers a unique combination of remoteness and tranquility, and at the same time one can keep themselves as busy at he wants. We loved our daily excursions. We loved a company of total strangers, which turned out to be nice, friendly, interesting people. We had quite a few easygoing talks with the hotel owner, and enjoyed them a lot. Definitely we are looking forward to visit beautiful, clean, refreshing Belum Eco Resort again: it's less than 3 hours drive from humid, hot, busy Penang where we are living. And the road…
My family stayed there for 2 nights. Very luckily we can see the blooming Rafflesia! The staff and the boss are very kind and friendly, we were really enjoying the stay. Just a bit regret that we did not see the elephant, maybe let it next time.
We really enjoyed our stay, The little private island of the resort has a magnificent view over the lake, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the food delicious. Steve and Suzan are wonderful hosts and are very dedicated. Staff is super friendly. We did not see many animals but hey: it is not a zoo. We really enjoyed the hikes in this beautiful rainforest that is not overrun by tourists. Our children felt like home. The rooms are basic which is fine. yes the generator makes noise but it is nice to have electricity once in a while. We definitely recommend staying at Belum Eco resort!
My family and friends truly enjoyed our stay at Belum Eco Resort a lot. Great host. Friendly and great staff plus good food. Nothing extravagant but food cooked well and tasty indeed. The scenery is awesome around the resort. I wish I had more days here. Definitely will come back again. Quaint, quiet and calm. Activities arranged were good and on time. Love it here! Very humbled by being to see the bloom of the rafflesia flower! Woo hoo!
The staffs are very friendly, helpful and accommodating in answering inquiries.I also change my booking date 3 days prior to arrival and they don't add an extra charge, thanks on that! The place is nice and beautiful, especially in the morning.
