The best part of our trip is the tour guide -- Bohan, who took care of everything, from logistic to accommodation, jungle trekking to chatting/cultural exchange after dinner.
The chalet is nice and cozy, and with ample space to put our stuff and hang our clothes. It was nice to shower in the bathroom which has a window view of the nature. The weather was good so we didn't find going to the detached bathroom annoying or inconvenient. Each chalet has a painting/art piece next to the door, which shows the artistic sense of the owner.
The bamboo lunch box is very unique and sustainable. Each one of us carried our bamboo lunch box to jungle trekking and had our lunch at the waterfall after a refreshing time in the cool water.
The resort is built and run sustainably. It is so good to see tourism operators who have sustainable mindset and don't consume/pollute our jungle for the sake of money.
We saw a blooming rafflesia, several species of eagles, hornbills, heron, lantern bug, centipede, etc. There is so much more to explore and learn from the 130 million years rainforest.

We set off with high expectation of the resort as what more can you ask for when the hotel's tagline says "The only resort with its own island in Belum-Temenggor."

First impression was good, we were greeted by the owners in their own boat. Small boat but adequate.

From a distance, it "wow". But it soon goes downhill from there.

1/ the room is so small. Though clean, the room feels claustrophobia. Only good for sleeping. There is no electricity in the resort during day time. So if you wish to sleep in after 8am, too bad. Gets very hot and stuffy as there's little ventilation due to the room size. You can't leave the doors ajar unless you wish to be a "blood donor" when you sleep.

2/ a very small bathroom is outside the room. So bring a brolly in case it rains and you need to go to the toilet. Luckily it didn't rain when we were there. Floor is slimy and leaves much to be desired.

3/ internet connectivity is extremely bad. But that is a given considering it is somewhere in the jungle. Internet connection only available at the dining area and with limited users and when the owners are around.

4/ food is nice BUT not enough for the number of people there. Meals are buffet style but with very limited portion.

Basically, I wish I didn't book the hotel in the first place.

Belum rainforest is far less famous than its counterpart Taman Negara, but is no doubt as interesting and immersive.

This was a fantastic 3D2N getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life and back into nature. Don't expect a 5* Langkawi resort, but do expect well thought out, comfortable, clean accommodations with hot showers and some really yummy food. We picked pucuk paku from the forest, saw 4 blooming Rafflesias and had a swim in the cold waterfall.

The Indonesian lady who takes care of the meals in the resort has kept birds in captivity in very very small cages in their boat house which do not have space for the birds to move around, left alone fly. Might as well kill the birds than keeping them alive in such inhuman way. Spoke to the owner, Steve Khong about it but he didn’t care much. Such contrary to what they preach to be an environmental loving resort. Hope anyone who reads this review can educate and pressure the resort to release the birds.

Apart from this, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The resort is on an island which is surround by lake and rainforests. Very rustic and back to nature.
