Last Frontier Resort

Resort in Bilit

Maybe they should rename this place the Last Breath Resort after the torturously steep hill you have to ascend to reach the place. Your reward, however, is a serene view of the floodplain and a sense of absolute escape with four boutique-style rooms with dark-wood beds and oxblood-hued linen. Package price includes two river cruises and one ridge trek.

The onsite Monkey Cup Cafe serves pasta bolognese, chicken curry, pancakes and other tasty international fare. The transfer here costs RM40 extra. You'll also be glad to hear there's a storeroom at the bottom of the 538 steps in which to leave your heavy bag while you carry up the bare essentials.
