Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would recommend it as an incredible way to experience the beauty of nature. Very relaxed and un-spoilt surroundings. Staff very friendly and efficient, food excellent.
We stayed at the Belum Eco-Resort for 3 days/2 nights. Note - you have to book a package to stay, at least food but you're really going in order to take a tour; so I made the reservation initially through a website but finalized over email/paypal. The drive to Royal Belum was very pleasant, a nice road and the jetty where you meet the boat is modern and has lots of information on the Royal Belum park. Driving in Malaysia was easy, I imagine we could have taken a bus but having our own car was much easier. We left the car at the jetty, 5 MYR ($1 USD) per day. The boat showed up on time and one other family joined us on our trip back to the island. The boat trip is very nice, a leisurely tour on a houseboat, and is a nice perk to staying at this resort. I also looked at…
Perfect stay with perfect host. The property is on a smal island and feels like paradise. The home made cooking is excellent and fresh. Our host Robert and our guide Mohan are really friendly and know how to show us the best spots in the jungle and on the lake. We learned a lot about the Malaysian people and the rain forest. Staying at Belum-Eco resort was an amazing experience for our family. We truly recommend this resort.
I had been booking my family trip since once year ago for 7 rooms, yet when I arrive, been inform only reserved for 6 rooms and they are fully book. The pic Ms mah with very bad customer service and argue without any apology and yet find no solution. If you expect no service, only consider this place.
Eleven classmates from Class of 1975 felt the closeness to Nature and this, is the charm of the beautiful island resort. This 2N3D stay in Belum Eco-Resort shall be remembered for a long time. After a day long hiking and boat ride, we were served with a delicious dinner every evening. After dinner, we had great fun with our mahjong games and karaoke sessions despite the whole antique system needed to be revamped. Steve, the resort owner promised to do so. Nevertheless, Belum Eco-Resort is value for money. Great thanks to Steve and his team for their wonderful hospitality.
