Cameron Highlands, Pahang

#30 of 128 in Things to do in Pahang
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.

    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.

    Charming old hotel in colonial style building bringing back nostalgic old world. A highlight of the stay in Cameron Highlands. Always feels homecoming back to the hotel after the day's activities.

    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.
