These 10 enchanting hotels and resorts in the Malaysian highlands will transport you to another world

Imagine crisp, fresh air and lower temperatures free from the humidity and heat that normally has you sweating buckets. What a refreshing change of environment from your typical stuffy, noisy office, no?

These cool havens aren’t far out of reach, either – Bukit Tinggi, Cameron Highlands and Genting Highlands all offer an invigorating escape from the daily grind. If you’re wondering where to stay, we’ve got some of the best places to chillax:

Bukit Tinggi

The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort

The Chateau

Rising from the misty mountains of Bukit Tinggi, you could easily mistake The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort for the Beast’s castle in Beauty and the Beast. And indeed, it was modeled after the famous 12th-century Haut-Koenigsbourg castle in Alsace, France. The resort’s hospitality and luxury spa are internationally award-winning, so rest assured that you’ll get top-notch service that even Lumière would approve of!

Colmar Tropicale

Colmar Tropicale

Continuing with the French theme, just next to The Chateau is Colmar Tropicale, an homage to the town of Colmar, also in Alsace. Besides offering a range of food and beverage outlets, this charming resort is perfect for re-enacting the memorable opening scene in Beauty and the Beast where the village residents sing about Belle. At night, the town’s colorful streets are beautifully lit up, making you believe you truly are someplace magical.

Cameron Highlands

Hotel De’ La Ferns

Hotel De' La Ferns

Ideally located between the towns of Tanah Rata and Brinchang, Hotel De’ La Ferns is a boutique hotel designed in the English Tudor style, where guests can stay in a classic English setting. Visitors will typically check out nearby farms and markets – we’d definitely recommend Abang Strawberry’s 200 Seeds Cafe. Try their nasi lemak served with strawberry and salted fish sambal. (Sounds a bit outlandish, but trust us, it’s good!)
