Ah! The Banjaran, what can we say? It's absolutely perfect, a little slice of heaven lost in the jungle. We stayed over for 3 nights in the garden villas, which are fabulous. The sights are breathtaking and the facilities fit in perfectly and are properly luxurious. A massive and ultra comfy bed, nice pool and really cool jacuzzi all at our service in the room made us forget we were surrounded by forest.
All the staff was really friendly, and we really felt relaxed and at peace for the whole stay.
Our favorite places were probably the steam cave, Dr fish and the spectacular wine cellar which is an absolute must see.
The food was also very good, it might get tiring for a long stay but for our four days there it was just perfect.
The only thing that didn't blow our mind was the jungle hike, we were hoping for something a little more on the wild side, but no harm done, it didn't take very long so we were back to bliss in a jiffy!
The manager was super friendly and ended up giving us really good advice for the rest of our trip over at KL, the restaurant staff was also very attentive, everyone at the Banjaran just made us feel really really welcome.
It's absolutely worth the trip if you are anywhere close to Malaysia!
