Situated directly opposite our hotel, the 6,101 metre, par 71, 18-hole golf course provides a full day's golf in fresh mountain air. The manicured course comprises green fairways with mature trees, fine sand bunkers, tricky greens and thick rough. Proper attire of collared t-shirt, pants, shorts or skirts and golf shoes or sport shoes is required on the golf course, practice areas and driving range.
No trip to the highlands would be complete without a tea plantation visit. In 1929, John Archibald Russell, the son of a British administrative officer, started the famous BOH Tea Plantation. Visitors are welcome to view the factory production process and enjoy a brew at the teashop with spectacular vistas. Other tea plantations within Cameron Highlands are the Bharat and Blue Valley plantations.
Waterfalls and Nature Trails
Located on the Titiwangsa Mountain Range spine, the forests of Cameron Highlands reveal nature at its best with exotic flora and fauna. There are plenty of jungle walks of varying difficulty and distance with some leading to waterfalls. Guests are recommended to be in proper sportswear attire and comfortable covered shoes for excursions. Discover trail excursions offered at our hotel here.
A wide range of fruits and vegetables thrive in the highlands’ cool climate and fertile soil, especially the ever-popular strawberry. Some farms allow self-picking of the juicy strawberries, fresh from the plant, while seeing how they are cultivated. Try the freshly picked fruit with thick delicious fresh cream or the quintessentially classic scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
Cameron Highlands is Malaysia's leading producer of fresh flowers with varied species that will dazzle you with their colours and blooms. More than 400 species of roses can be found in rose gardens and nurseries along the main road from Ringlet to Kampung Raja. The popular Cactus Valley in Brinchang has many varieties of cactus plants, some as old as 60 years.
Pasar Malam or the Night Market is a place not to be missed when in Brinchang and Tanah Rata towns. Every weekend and on public holidays, peddlers will gather in the evening to set up their little stalls offering a variety of kitsch souvenirs, vegetables and fruits, plants, cactus, indigenous handicrafts and weapons as well as hawker stalls serving local favourites and continental snacks.
