Sweet Escapade at The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat - Part 1
I'm BACK! I'm BACK! Yes, I knew that the last post was half year ago :P
How I wish I could have the luxury of time to blog more often!!! But I know being a working mother of two, I have no choice but to prioritise my family and work so before I resume working, I will try to update more often.
Visited this beautiful heaven last year with hubby but I think it's never too late to share such a wonderful place for CUTI-CUTI MALAYSIA with all of you.
The Banjaran is situated among limestone hills and rain forest, this peaceful paradise offers stunning greenery surroundings and natural hotsprings lake and caves. It has a no-child policy to make sure guests are indulged in this tranquil environment for relaxing and rejuvenation.
After entering the resort, we were greeted by the most natural and serene surroundings.
Checking in was a breeze. And the hotel staff asked us to hit the gong to mark our arrival.
Ready to be taken for a quick tour on a buggy before being sent to our room.
Housing only 25 villas, each villa comes with its own private plunge pool. There are only two room types, garden villas which offer better privacy, bigger swimming pool and living area and water villas which are build on the water canal with a smaller space but comes with a balcony to laze on.
We chose to stay in Water Villa but upon arrival, we were automatically upgraded by the resort to Garden Villa. So happy!
Our room key. It was a waterproof bracelet. No worries if you drop it in the hotspring pool.
The swimming pool and sun deck
Besides the pool, there was a spacious living area equipped with reading materials and built-in relaxing music whole day round.
The bedroom with super comfy mattress and pillows
Washroom which had a door opened to some beautiful landscape setting
A very big wardrobe connecting with the washroom
And most important was our private hot spring tub at the backyard! Water from the natural hot spring was channeled into this tub and cold water tap was available for us to regulate the temperature.
Ready to explore the surroundings by our feet. Here's the water villa.
Guests are not allowed to enter the main geothermal hotspring lake because of its high temperature. But there were a few hot dipping pot if you love the outdoor dipping experience.
Greeneries and natural stones
There was a small man made waterfall in front. The sound of water flowing from the waterfall had a magically relaxing effect, which made me fell in love with this surrounding.
Let's explore the Steam Cave.
The only photo that I managed to capture due to the steam blurring my camera lense.
Crystal Lake, which was a mirror-like lake that you could clearly see your own reflection!
The stairs to go up to The Balcony, which offered a panorama view over the geothermal hotspring lake, swimming pool and the surrounding limestone hills.
Beautiful view and relaxing spot
Our very first Garra Rufa Therapy experience
Omg! I really couldn't stand the tickling sensation when the fishes exfoliated my feet. Photo shown was my hubby's hand.
Besides the dazzling scene as shown above, the resort has some special attractions which other places fail to offer.
Please stay tune for Part 2 alright? See you soon!
