A Budget Honeymoon Spot

This month's feature is merely an introduction to our nation's newest resort, The Ulu-Ulu Resort in Temburong. I remember reading about this resort in Brunei's "BIG" magazine last month and have been meaning to share with you all this newest, possible honeymoon spot for couples on a tight budget.

A relative of mine and his guest from Paris were lucky to be basically the first guests there recently. Although they had a mishap of their bed tumbling to the floor, he did say the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. He said they made them feel like royalty as they were the only ones there. He also added that the view of the heart of Brunei was spectacular. I personally had planned to have my second honeymoon there. Just me and my other half 'monkey-ing' around in the deep rainforest.

One of the Suites

This three-star resort is situated in the middle of the vast Ulu Temburong National Park Rainforest, near the banks of the Temburong and Belalong River. There are only two ways of getting to the Ulu Ulu Resort, by means of a boat or by helicopter. This resort currently has facilities for both Business & Leisure. Nineteen wooden suites made up of the main suites & villas have been carefully decorated with tropical contemporary furniture. Have no fear air-condition lovers, some of the rooms are equipped with air-con but be sure to request a room that does have it. My relative did inform me that the resort runs on a generator which is turned on from 6pm to 6am, so during the day, resort guests will enjoy a peaceful non-electricity life style.

This resort is most ideal for newly weds who are on a budget due to wedding finances and still want to enjoy a break from the real world and enjoy a little peaceful time together without disturbances. With just B$500 in your pocket, you can enjoy a little honeymoon in the backyard of our own nation. Yes, I do know its neither a shopping haven nor a luxurious resort BUT a honeymoon is when two soul mates spend quality time together and is a break from the real world. It is a time when both can enjoy each others company and do whatever they love doing together. At the Ulu-Ulu Resort, adventurous newly-weds who are nature lovers can enjoy kayaking, rafting, trekking to a heavenly waterfall or enjoying a walk on the Canopy, all for a little fee. Kayaking is B$20 per kayak for 30 minutes and a longboat ride would cost B$20 per person for 20 minutes. As for the waterfall trek, they charge B$60 per person and the canopy walk is B$20 per person. A two day, one night stay at this lovely resort would cost approximately B$500 per couple. Yet for more details, do visit their website at and easily make your booking online if you are interested.
