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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
