We stayed at the Lakehouse for NYE and had quite the memorable experience. Prior to stepping foot into the hotel, my boyfriend had pleasant email exchanges with Param which set the tone for our stay at the Lakehouse.
Checking in was a breeze with a comfortable waiting area and refreshing welcome drinks. Param made it even better by informing us that we were upgraded!
The Forest Suite is massive. The bathroom itself is bigger than the average hotel room in Kuala Lumpur with his-and-hers sink, a walk-in closet, and a sunken-in tub with a waterfall showerhead.
The room is exquisitely decorated with antiques. Using the rotary phone by the four-poster bed brought me back in time, and making a fire in the huge fireplace was perfect for the cold, gray, and damp winter day.
But perhaps what made our stay exceptional was the impeccable service provided by the accommodating staff at the Lakehouse. Everyone, from Param to the receptionist to the waitstaff, went above and beyond. As both my boyfriend and I have experience in the hospitality sector, we have pretty high standards. Well done, the Lakehouse!
Our only suggestions for improvement concerns the food. While we enjoyed other meals at the resort, we found the breakfast lacking. In particular, the Eggs Benedict and the French Toast were substandard.
However, all-in-all our stay was lovely, and we do recommend the Lakehouse should you decide to visit Cameron Highlands.
