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.

Room I booked a 2-bedroom suite (Room 19) - a suite room with a double bed with a living area with balcony access interconnected to another twin bedded room sharing the same toilet. Tip: this 2-bedroom suite can fit up to 4 adults but only has 1 toilet. The room is pretty well kept considering the age of the resort and thumbs up to the good upkeeping of this room. Hotel Setting & Service The setting of the resort hasn't changed much from it's colonial past from it's hotel lobby to its lounge, dining room and the new addition Gonbei where they serve chinese hotpot if you purchase the resident package. Check in service was informative and sufficient but I thought the reception ladies' uniform should look a little cleaner and white. I saw stain in their uniform and I most certainly believe that those uniforms are due for an update. Overall, the whole resort is rather well kept and good job to the maintenance team in the most general way. Food I purchased Resident Package which includes 2 nights stay, 2 breakfast, 2 lunch and 2 dinner. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement when it comes to food and that applies to breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea. Breakfast is based on an ala carte menu and is order to serve. Food presentation is definitely lacking compared to the restaurant set-up which is rather formal with white table cloth. Food taste were generally average and it applies to most breakfast menus such as Nasi Lemak (sambal was starchy), Noodles (soup wasn't hot), luke warm porridge and servings/portions differ from one day to the next. Coffee was diluted unless you get the waiter to have the coffee changed to a freshly brewed cup. Only thing nice was the Gold Blended BOH tea. Lunch and dinner was again average and definitely not the highlight of the stay. However, whilst having hotpot at Gonbei, I did overhear 2 other tables commenting that hotpot was nice - so I guess it's perhaps my high expectation as I just returned from Pullman Maldives all-inclusive resort. I travelled with both my parents who are in their 70s, they don't have much good things to comment on food and dad said it's "4 star food". So, that's as real as I can review in a non-bias sense. Will I Come Back? Not in the near future as there is not one specific area of the resort that is sticky. Compared to the last time I was here, perhaps 10 years or so back, I think the resort has lost it's charm.

My only regret with the Cameron Highlands Resort is not having taken seriously enough the comments by previous travellers and posted on this forum. After 3 sleepless nights in this supposedly 5 star hotel which is run on a shoestring budget I can fully subscribe to the comments regarding noise from the main road in front of the hotel. Although we stayed during the slow mid week period, the traffic noise is audible in all the guest rooms, public areas and restaurants. Even worse, the local mat rempit (motor bike Hooligans) use the straight uphill stretch of road in front of the hotel as their private race track until the early hours of the morning. Commercial traffic starts again at 5am. It is impossible to get restful sleep or read a book on the balcony with this incessant traffic noise. Rather like camping along Jalan Ampang in KL. The other issue is the positioning statement of the hotel which suggests as being set amidst tea plantations…..this is a blatant lie. The hotel is nowhere near a tea plantation. In fact, the hotel has no grounds or gardens of its own except for a narrow landscaped stretch of driveway and parking lot between the main road and hotel building. There are no trails or pathways leading from the hotel grounds. One could theoretically walk from the hotel to Tana Ratah but with heavy traffic it would be a foolish undertaking. For guests who do not arrive with their own car one is marooned in a hotel with constant noise pollution. We had dinner in the dining room, high tea in the lounge and tried their steamboat in what looked like a disused Japanese open air restaurant at the back of the hotel. The culinary offerings are not bad but not good enough to warrant a return visit. There is certainly very little value for money compared to 5 star hotels in KL. With the spa closed and other activities like a picnic in the tea plantation or set dinner in an off site setting not available, there is really nothing else to do in the hotel. The hotel‘s activities pamphlet suggested a romantic candle light dinner in the dining room or curling up in the reading room in front of a „merrily crackling fire“. Alas, two cold fire places were staring at us during our 3N/4D stay and no candles were to be seen. There was an attempt to light the fire in the bar on the 1st evening but it died after a few minutes. A second attempt on the eve of our departure was a bit more successful and I managed to finish my whiskey before the fire went out again. I don’t know what it is, perhaps cost saving on firewood or cleaning the fire place but I thought a fire in the evening in a hill station hotel would create instagrammable moments and entice guests to linger and order drinks?? The lady manager of the hotel met us at breakfast on our last day and was very apologetic. I must say that the staff, especially the contract workers from India, Myanmar and Bangladesh were very friendly and seemed to working non stop from breakfast to late evening. It seems the hotel is riding on the mystery of Jim Thompson and highland romance. However, if Jim Thompson was still alive today he would most probably not mysteriously vanish in the jungle but get run over by the vegetables trucks barrelling down the road outside the hotel.

I booked the junior suite because I wanted a good stay since based on readings, I was informed that the resort has a good view overlooking the golf course. To my surprise, the room that I got is on the ground floor and the balcony is actually not a balcony! It is just an outdoor area next to the tar road and there are even cars parked beside it! No view of the golf course at all and i can only see rows of cars. When i sit at the so called “balcony” i am actually sitting next to a car as if I am at the car park!! If i known, i wld just get a standard room and not pay extra price for the suite. Also the curtains in the room are only the see through sheer type and at night, the owner of the cars which are parked beside my “balcony” can clearly see inside the room!!

Upon arriving at the hotel driveway, we were immediately attended by a friendly bellboy to help us with our luggage up the stairs. Reception service was flawless and we were asked to sit at the lounge while they get our reservation information out - such an attentive team that recognized we took almost 4 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. Our suite was also great! Clean and the cool breeze from outside moved the whole experience up the next level. Hotel service was delivered by a small and dedicated multitasking team! Despite jumping from one chores to the other, they never wipe out their smile when attending us. A special mention to Phyo and Marneh - a true star of this hotel. Not forgetting the bellboy - he was also multitasking with restaurant operations. Food - Excellent variety and quality! Drinks - Very good service by the bartender, every night! Overall, a highly recommended for people who wants to relax and pampered with great service! Will definitely visit again, with a group of golfers - golf course is in front of the hotel. Terry B
