Each of the 56 rooms and suites at the Cameron Highland Resort is beautifully furnished, with large four-poster beds and a small balcony offering views over the adjacent golf course. The design is nostalgic yet elegant, combining teakwood and tasteful silks.

Set high in the verdant hills north of Kuala Lumpur, amidst tea plantations and strawberry farms, lies the Cameron Highlands Resort. The property is a wonderfully colonial building, hinting at the highlands’ roots in British tradition. First mapped in 1885 by William Cameron, this hill station retains a quintessentially English atmosphere, with afternoon tea served on the terrace being a real highlight. Visit the tea plantations to learn about the most English of drinks and stroll through the strawberry plantations taking in the cool mountain air. The Cameron Highlands are a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur and add a different dimension to a holiday in Malaysia. The property is very traditional and classic, not for fans of the super modern style of hotel, but is a real retreat and a must for those spending longer in the region.
