We set off with high expectation of the resort as what more can you ask for when the hotel's tagline says "The only resort with its own island in Belum-Temenggor."
First impression was good, we were greeted by the owners in their own boat. Small boat but adequate.
From a distance, it "wow". But it soon goes downhill from there.
1/ the room is so small. Though clean, the room feels claustrophobia. Only good for sleeping. There is no electricity in the resort during day time. So if you wish to sleep in after 8am, too bad. Gets very hot and stuffy as there's little ventilation due to the room size. You can't leave the doors ajar unless you wish to be a "blood donor" when you sleep.
2/ a very small bathroom is outside the room. So bring a brolly in case it rains and you need to go to the toilet. Luckily it didn't rain when we were there. Floor is slimy and leaves much to be desired.
3/ internet connectivity is extremely bad. But that is a given considering it is somewhere in the jungle. Internet connection only available at the dining area and with limited users and when the owners are around.
4/ food is nice BUT not enough for the number of people there. Meals are buffet style but with very limited portion.
Basically, I wish I didn't book the hotel in the first place.More
