Having the opportunity to discover the malaysian rainforst and staying at the Belum Eco-Resort during two nights was a real chance. Steeve and his team are fascinating and teaches you a lot on the ecosystem, the country, the wildlife etc. Talking about the food, I think it is one of the best and simple food I've ever eaten. The small...

We stayed there for 2 nights. The people were all very nice. The rooms were simple but clean with an own terrace and bathroom with a great view:) The food was very good as well.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Eco-Resort. We were picked up at the jetty at lunchtime and as well as our very informative and helpful host, Steve Khong, we met up with a party of keen Malaysian and Singaporean bird watchers who were also staying there. On the first evening we travelled by boat to an observation point...

Dear Richard, You are one of the many who know how to enjoy good holiday! some people get upset with small little things and get the whole trip ruined !

We stayed there for 4 days and wished it would have been longer. It's a really special place in the middle of unfortunately endangered nature. Once you've been there you'll understand why it's worthy to protect it and keep it safe from any mass tourism and the industry. During our stay, Steve, Robert, Tom and his team showed us a...

Steve and Tom Khong run this resort with a lot of passion and have assembled a great and very friendly team. This is a real family-run outfit with perhaps not as many amenities as you would expect of a premier resort, but it's very authentic, and you know and see exactly where the money you pay is going. We had...

Dear customer, We appreciate your kind review and thanks for your honest opinion. the problem of getting good English speaking guide from among the local boat operator is a major problem, it is not about money, it is about availability especially during the peak season. we have used 90% of the decent operators here in lake Temengor, the really good...

“Chalets are narrow and not suitable for tall people. Long walk to rooms on cobbled walkway so need to have reasonably strong legs and stamina. Insect repellent definitely recommended. ”
