The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat

Ipoh | Deluxe

A luxurious retreat not far from Ipoh in north-west Malaysia, the Banjaran’s superb private villas boast a backdrop of natural caves, mature jungle, and geothermal springs, which also supply the jacuzzis and a range of pools.

Accommodation consists of a handful of spacious villas laid out through tropical gardens and along a placid canal that runs through the grounds. The ‘Water’ villas have balconies overhanging the water, and all villas have plunge pools and geothermal jacuzzis set into their private patios. Inside, the villas are beautifully presented in a comfortable contemporary style, with polished wooden floors, high thatched ceilings, and chunky wooden furniture that reflects the resort’s natural surroundings. Bathroom fittings are also satisfyingly weighty and natural.

Cuisine at the Banjaran is all about delicious healthy meals made with locally sourced ingredients, served in your villa or at the relaxing garden restaurant. Top prize, however, must go to the bar, which is situated deep inside a limestone cave in the grounds - jaw-dropping, to say the least.

The other jewel in the Banjaran’s crown is its geothermal spring, which bubbles up into hot dipping pools, the freeform swimming pool, and a steam cave that acts likes a natural sauna. There is also an ice bath, a meditation cave, and a pond full of Garra Rufa fish. The resort’s spa offers comprehensive wellness programmes along with a range of lavish beauty and relaxation therapies, and - as if that wasn’t enough - there’s also a jungle walkway, and a fitness centre with treetop views.
