Set amidst tea plantations and rolling hills, this boutique hideaway promises all the splendour, romance and nostalgia of Cameron Highlands’ grand colonial heritage.Tall French doors, timber-beamed ceilings and plantation shutters add colonial charm and a touch of nostalgia to our rooms.Enjoy a refreshing round of golf, a pink-cheeked ramble along jungle trails, or a leisurely walk through tea plantations and strawberry farms. To recover, you can have a cup of tea in the drawing room, or a tea bath at the Spa Village, or you may simply choose to spend the day curled up with a good book by the fireplace.Cameron Highlands Resort is situated on the largest hill retreat in Malaysia, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, lush greenery, rolling hills and Tudor-styled cottages. The luxurious boutique Resort features 56 beautifully-appointed rooms and suites, and fronts Cameron Highlands’ 18-hole golf course. It also houses the third wellness centre of the award-winning Spa Village group, which offers exotic treatments focusing on the healing and restorative properties of tea. Located in the state of Pahang, approximately 200 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands is a beautiful holiday destination and the only place where you can find tea plantations and strawberries in Malaysia. At about 1,500 metres above sea level, it is the highest area on the mainland and enjoys a cool climate and fresh air, with temperatures ranging between 15° and 25° Celsius. Much of the character of the highlands remains unchanged since colonial times. It is endearingly known to some as the ‘little corner of England in Asia’. The cool climate on the picturesque plateau and its surrounding hills and forest make this a popular retreat for golfing, jungle trekking and exploration of the many plantations and gardens. Cameron Highlands Resort is ideal all year round for families, honeymooners and holidaymakers out to satiate their appetites for trails, tales and tradition.

The hotel is located well outside the town of Tanah Rata. Both floors have balconies overlooking a golf course and quite a busy road. Quite handy then that the earplugs are provided by the hotel.
Bedrooms are spacious, beds very comfortable. In keeping with colonial style of the building there is no air conditioning but ceiling fans.
Good WiFi signal and selection of TV channels. Excellent response from the maintenance team who repaired the bathroom shaving socket within minutes of calling the Reception.
Dinners are offered in the main dining room where we tried an excellent beef rendang or in Gonbei, a semi el fresco restaurant serving the steamboat that is a variation on a fondue and a bit of a gimmick.
Breakfast was fairly standard, no pleasant surprises there.
People come here to explore the tea plantations and the mountains. The spa is unnecessarily expensive but there is not much else to do so bring a good book in case of inclement weather.
