A natural haven for outdoor enthusiasts, it is an ideal resort as you explore the unique and wide range of wildlife existing here. Renowned for one of Sabah’s most splendid natural treasures, the area is teeming with many rare and endangered animals and a spectacular assembly of bird life, including the majestic Borneo Hornbill.


Winner of the Sabah Tourism Best Nature Attraction Award 2003, Balung Eco-Resort is surrounded by virgin rainforests of the breath-taking Tawau Hills Park. Balung Plantation is the first eco-resort set within a tropical plantation, which balances opportunities for learning and understanding of the natural surrounding along with a relaxing, serene escape into the wild. Visitors will ultimately experience a deep appreciation for the rich, local ecology of one of the oldest rainforest in the world. Guests can escape into different areas of the plantation, such as to the Tea Garden where beautiful flowers of the Java blooms, enjoy a dip into the Balung river which runs through the plantation, embark on adventurous scenic hikes, a stroll down to the fishing pond located just beside the resort, have a relaxing drink and snacks at the pool, or indulge yourself at the Markisa Café where you will discover excellent Malaysian food.
