A nice hotel on a beautiful location but with one big downside, the reconstruction works! The resort is extending the capacity and adding more facilities to it but work runs from at least 9 am until 6 pm. If you don't mind the sound of power tools instead of birds singing then this is the place for you! Work should be finished around June 2013. Unfortunate I noticed after check in because there was no mention of it on the various booking sites.
The rooms are well build and look beautiful but could be cleaned better. The beds sleep quite hard and the synthetic sheets and pillows are not very comfortable.
Expect a 35rm per person per day extra for the buffet because there aren't many restaurants nearby. The buffet is oke, but not really "resort" worthy, there is however a ala cart menu but this is one available after 9pm.
The trips in the Belum area are great and you should go out even if you have little time.
If I should stay in the area again I wouldn't book this place but try the nearby Eco resort instead. I think the place will be fantastic after the construction works are finished but that still a long wait.
