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.
The Belum Eco-Resort is not your standard property. It is very off the grid, unique and laid back. Our hosts, Mohan and Mr. Robert did a great job cooking and guiding us along. Please look at their website first and make sure you know what you're getting into. There is nothing typical about this location. As long as you're along for the ride, you'll have an incredible time. We sure did.
I was very facinated about the way the resort was maintained, the hut is so “original”, it give us the opportunity to “feel” the nature surrounding the hut. The staffs working there are super friendly and care taking, i will feel relieved when they are taking care of my kid especially he was playing in the lake, waterfall, jungle walking. They have vast knowledge on the nature and living in Temenggor which allows a city person like me to have some insight story of livelihood in rural. Overall, it was a fantastic getaway for me. A great bonding with family as limited wifi and gadget.
The host was very friendly and helpful. The resort was clean. Meals provided were delicious and varied. Excursions were well organised and educational. A pleasant and enjoyable stay and memorable experience.
The Eco resort is very relaxing and it is certainly back to nature. Clean, clear water surrounds it. The steps to climb back to deck after a swim could be wider, to make the climb easier. Meals are served just right and should plan to be in time. It certainly is a wonderful resort & adventure for anyone interested in trekking. Remember the insect & mosquito repellents.
