After traveling for 6 days and staying at three other hotels, my wife and I were looking forward to Belum Resort. Check in was the first indication of things to come. They simply pointed in the direction of the rooms. We managed to find a staff member who was cleaning around the building to help with our luggage. The room was nice but lacked chairs to sit in and no TV - really? There was no balcony but you wouldn't want to sit outside the room as the passing traffic would not provide any peace of mind. Wireless internet was not available in the room so we tried sitting in the garden on the lake side only to hear the roar of machinery and banging of pipes as the place is a construction zone - even on a Sunday. I asked the desk if they had a pool. NO! But staff said I could swim in the [murky] reservoir. We walked to the jetty which itself was another construction zone. I just can't figure out how the owners can charge so much and offer so little for paying guest. For anyone considering stopping here, give it another two years and maybe by then the construction will be complete. Very disappointing and there's nothing 'green' about Belum Resort.
