A longer retreat for nature lovers at the exclusive rainforest resort or just to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Enjoy a 3 days/ 2 nights stay at Ulu Ulu Resort in the heart of Ulu Temburong National Park.

This is a fully inclusive package from your hotel to the national park. The package includes full board meals, activities, English speaking guide and an exclusive stay at the award-winning Ulu Ulu Resort. No other tour operator can offer a stay in the National Park. We are committed to our Green Practice to ensure minimal operational impact on environment whilst supporting local community and offering high standard of service. For instance, we give complimentary Stainless Steel Bottle for water refill at the resort to reduce plastic bottle waste.

The national park is 50,000 hectares of pristine rainforest with one of the best biodiversity in the world. You will experience up close the wonders of the rainforest; listen to the orchestra of nature’s music by the insects, birds and animals. This tour is rated as a soft adventure and suitable for those reasonably fit as there are many steps to climb and some slippery and wet tracks. The journey to the national park from Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) is itself interesting as you go on three different modes of transport and see the changes in vegetation (plenty of photo opportunity).

The trip departs BSB in the morning and we will proceed by public speedboat to Bangar town before we go overland to Batang Duri. At Batang Duri, we will ride on a long boat or temuai up the rapids to the national park. At Batang Duri, we will board the temuai (longboat) up the rapids to Ulu Ulu Resort. Note: *Timing is very important as any delay will have a ripple effect and it will cause bigger delays especially that we are on 3 modes of transport change. If you are late, we have a right not to wait for you.

After registration and lunch, we will proceed for water activities which include guided kayaking trip between the Belalong River and the Two River Terrace. After kayaking, you will continue with tubing activity which starts from the registration jetty to the Outward Bound area. Trek for five minutes to the mini waterfall, swim and then return to the resort. A slideshow about the resort and national park will be presented at Valley Café before dinner. All meals are specially prepared by us, which are based upon local favourites and they are excellent too. Stainless Steel Bottle is also provided for water refill at the resort. After dinner, we will continue with a guided jungle walk.

On day 2, breakfast will be served at Valley Café before we enjoy the next adventurous trail to experience the pristine forest. The trek will take approximately 2-3 hours to reach our destination where we will sample lunch cooked in traditional style. Return to the resort via longboat ride. Free at leisure before continuing with guided bird watching around the resort. Dinner will be served at the Valley Café at 1900hrs. Next, you have the option to play pool or enjoy our selection of movies at the theater room.

On day 3, morning call will be at 4.30am and after a light breakfast, proceed to the canopy walk for the sunrise view that literally takes your breath away. When the mist lifts, you will see birds flying out to feed and gibbons calling across the treetops. We will then return to the resort for breakfast and rest before heading to the mini waterfall where we can enjoy fish massage as well as a jungle trekking back to the resort. Lunch will be served at 12.30pm before we return to BSB.
