"Just Unique and Amazing place on Earth"
I just stayed 2 Nights at this amazing resort with my wife, and were very much surprised by the gorgeous nature surrounding the resort but most importantly how they built their resort to be so integrated into the decor. Staff is very helpful and complex provides free VIP shuttle to the Lost World Theme park just next to it. A must to do is to try their hot springs / spa / Yoga classes / fish spa and more importantly have a magnificent dinner in the beautiful restaurant located in a Cave. Just perfect for relaxation and be surrounded by nature! Definitively coming back here!
"Romantic and Gorgeous"
The building of a resort around the hot spring is a spark of genius. It's a very classy combination of nature and concrete. The whole experience with the staff was also amazing. Right from when we arrived to check out. We were taken on a tour of all the activities. There are a few places to check out but you can do it in a short time. I highly recommend you take an hour + slowly walking to the places of interest. The Water Villas are huge and I am told the Garden Villa is almost twice as large. The Water Villas were more secluded, quiet and absolutely gorgeous!!! This time around, our villa was next to their construction of 20 new villas. We mentioned it in passing and our guide Roy, apologized and arranged for us to have a complimentary lunch whose choices included lobster and steak. The breakfast was also impressive with a juice bar and a blend of local and western. Jeff's Cellar the dinner restaurant was expensive but so worth it. While the food can be improved, the setting and ambiance is just amazing. It's build into a live cave. Still forming with water flowing around us. Ask also to visit the wine cellar. You must go at least once. No kids though.
"Paradise on earth"
Banjaran is so beautiful and tranquil with stunning scenery around it. It is definitely a wonderful destination for relaxation and retreat. We enjoyed the natural hot spring, the steam cave, the beautiful grounds. The staffs were very helpful. We had our best meal inside the cave at the Jeff Cellar. It was so beautiful and romantic. Our garden villa was spacious with private swimming pool and hot spring pool. The only complaint or drawback was the mosquitos... We got eaten alive....
"A Great Experience "
I heard and read mix reviews about Banjaran but most were very positive. During the Chinese new year holidays I decided to take a short trip to Ipoh so I thought I should experience this resort on my own. When I arrived at the entrance, access was restricted to staying guest as they checked and matched your identification before opening the gate. At the check in area, my family and I were personally greeted by the GM, Mr Alex Rosario and his front office staff. Upon registration, we were provided a personal short tour on buggy around the resort. This allowed us to be familiar with the various attractions and facilities available. Once we entered our garden Villa, I was awed by it. A personal swimming pool and relaxing area by the pool greeted us. Then we accessed the bed room and this was another pleasant experience. Everything from jacuzzi, rain shower, separate toilets and spacious wardrobe area. When there, one must go and experience Jeff's Cellar. I got there pretty late due to a dinner engagement outside but I was glad I made it back before they closed and i managed to enjoy a drink. The experience and ambience of restaurant inside a cave was something out of this world. It is so well decorated and lit to bring out the natural cave walls and stalagmites which my family and I couldn't stop with the photo sessions. The staff are all so ever friendly and more than happy to assist with anything. It was a short stay but certainly a memorable one and I promised to return.
"Banjaran is a touch of Heaven"
We arrived to a very pleasant greeting, refreshing drink and cold towel to perk our spirits. Striking the gong to provide good luck certainly paid off for the next 24 hours.Service was impeccable, the villa was fabulous and the grounds are beautiful and serene. Dinner in the cave was an even more awesome experience. The food & service were excellent, the background music added to the romantic atmosphere. The only problem was that our stay was too short. We now consider Ipoh a destination, just to come to Banjaran Hotsprings Resort.
