Malaysia's largest and most well know hill resort, the Cameron Highlands, is a wonderful place to enjoy nature and get out of the heat of the low lands. The highlands are actually a series of townships, with Tanah Rata being the most famous and most convenient place to stay when visiting. Situated over 1,000 metres above sea level, the crisp air and stunning scenery here is a picture perfect place to relax. Boasting Southeast Asia's largest tea plantation, BOH tea, the landscape is nothing short of spectacular.
There are only a handful of boutique hotels in Cameron Highlands and all offer a quaint atmosphere and a unique ambience. Guests can appreciate the English-themed décor and furnishings at many of the small inns. Being surrounded with tea plantations, the old-English theme is common among the boutiques and many resemble British cottages of the olden days. There are also a few with more of a current feel and theme for guests with modern tastes.
Comfort and hospitality is not sacrificed for looks at the boutique properties. Visitors will enjoy free Wi-fi, comfortable beds, clean and non-smoking rooms, and balconies or terraces to appreciate the mountain views in privacy. They are also great for families, as many have the option of family rooms that can sleep up to six people and outdoor gathering spots for barbecues or picnics in the garden.
Guests can choose to stay within walking distance of the charming city centre of Tanah Rata as many of the boutiques are within three kilometres of the restaurants, cafés, coffee, and souvenir shops in the town. There is also the option of being a little further away from the centre and staying close to the butterfly or strawberry farms that are a must see in Cameron Highlands.
Travellers should be sure to take a tour through the BOH tea plantation, see the waterfalls, or go on a jungle walk through the mossy forest. The staff at the boutique hotels in the Cameron Highlands can help visitors organise any kind of tour. Modest prices and friendly service can be expected at the cosy inns. Guests won't be disappointed when choosing a boutique hotel in Cameron Highlands.
