It was a right decision to book Cameron Highlands Resort for a our short getaway. It was the right place to have a good and relaxing rest. The service staff are excellent and they tried to accommodate to your requests. Truly, the resort lives up to its brand name of being apart of YTL group. The deluxe room was spacious... More

After seeing the ratings on Agoda and booking.com we were convinced that this is a top class hotel in Cameron Highlands and fully worth the money. But unfortunately Cameron Highlands resort didn't live up to our expectations. The hotel was quite small and very near to the road. We thought of spending a few hours in the hotel, walking in...

We stayed in June 2014 for 2 nights as part of a long weekend in KL. The weather was terrible for a lot of the time we were there, so we mostly stayed in and enjoyed the spa (must try!) and dining options.

Stayed two nights as part of a self fly drive trip around Malaysia. The hotel is very nice, good service and great breakfast with silver service. However, the hotel needs a re vamp and the first priority should be getting the windows double or triple glazed. We brought ear plugs after reading some reviews about traffic noise but they were...

This YTL resort is not a 5 star, road noise is terrible, we did not sleep at all. We were given room 45 1st floor, overlooking the roof of the pool room/lounge below with the remark that the road noise was maybe less because the roof was in front of it. Bathroom needs to be renovated, very tatty. 1 of... More

Every aspect of the Cameron Highlands Resort is exceptional: ambience, staff, cleanliness, layout, John Thompson Tea Room! The Deluxe Room was magnificent. The Asia hotpot dinner at the fabulous open-air Gonbei Restaurant was such an incredible experience that we repeated it the next evening!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
