Belum Eco Resort’s (BER) design evolves around green eco concept. Until today, BER continues to proudly practice ‘Responsible Tourism’.
This package deal includes: two (2) nights at the Belum Eco Resort in full board (breakfast, lunch, dinner during your stay at the resort) plus full day excursion at the Royal Belum state park.
Located in an isolated islet inside the Temenggor Nature Reserve, the Belum Eco Resort blends beautifully with the surrounding vegetation.
You can only reach the islet by boat. Nonetheless, this makes the Resort location much more quiet, reserved and even secluded, offering a truly unique experience to its guests.
This package includes: two (2) nights stay in full board plus full day excursion at the Royal Belum state park.
Guests will be accommodated in eco friendly and quiet chalets in the midst of local vegetation. Each chalet can accommodate up to two persons or a couple with their child sharing the bed. Moreover, all chalets have an attached bathroom with hot water (note: there are rare, occasional power disruptions resulting in cold water). The majority of chalets have a lake view and are equipped with fans and mosquito nets. However, there is no air conditioning in the island. Please note that the services on this island are basic and are camping-like.
