Cameron Highlands, Pahang

3.5
#9 of 31 in Sightseeing in Pahang
Landmark Tourist Spot
Sip on a locally sourced tea and take in the fields of green as far as the eye can see at Cameron Highlands. The country's biggest hill station area, the highlands are even bigger than the area of Singapore. Here, the scent of eucalyptus wafts and you'll find a refreshingly cool breeze as tea plantations and strawberry fields unfold in the distance. The highlands were developed by the British in the British colonial era as a popular holiday destination. Bungalows, golf courses, summer homes, and resorts dot the hillsides. Throughout the highlands you'll find plenty of hiking trails, as well as many temples and forests in the natural areas that surround the region. Work out when and for how long to visit Cameron Highlands and other Cameron Highlands attractions using our handy Cameron Highlands family vacation planner.

  • Quaint and quiet. A short drive from Tanah Rata & impeccable customer service from the staff, always smiling, greeting guests and looking to assist in any way. Love the preservation of the architectural style reminiscent of the Colonial era in Cameron Highlands, and as such they don't have an elevator installed (it's 2 stories only anyway). Lots of greenery behind the property and it faces a Golf Course in the front across the road. Speaking of, when things quieten down at night, you do get some noise from passing vehicles, so unless you're a very light sleeper, it should be alright. Rooms are spacious and everything is great, but if I had to Nitpick, it would be the television in the room was a tad too small and not really suited for viewing in the "living room" set in the room. Limited open air parking is available, but no issues encountered in finding a parking lot even during the festive season, so it should be manageable.
  • Great service housed in charming colonial architecture at ultra premium price. Spacious rooms, comfortable bed and would be perfect if the balcony isn't facing the busy road.
  • One of the best hotels visited (for the price we paid!) and we've been to many. Love the romantic room, the view of the golf course and the staffs that go the extra mile to make you feel welcomed. Many visitors complained of the noise from the adjacent street but after midnight it wss quiet. Tried the spa and the restaurant and review will follow soon!
  • The hotel has charm, the staff is really well trained. A very good restaurant, an elegant tea room with piano. Rating due to no restrictions of access to families with young children that at times make look this place like a kindergarden. If if love your peace and quiet go somewhere else.
  • A beautiful place opposite the golf course. Relatively convenient to get to towns since it's near the main road

Where to stay in Cameron Highlands

Consider the areas along the main road linking the settlements of Cameron Highlands to find accommodations suited to most tastes and budgets. Tanah Rata offers perhaps the greatest choice of options, with everything from luxury resorts to simple guesthouse alternatives. Heading north, roadside accommodations--primarily medium priced--provide excellent options for those wishing to escape the urban bustle.
