In the knowOn Easter Sunday in 1967, the American tycoon Jim Thomson – once involved with the CIA, and credited with the revival of the Thai silk industry – went for an afternoon walk in the Cameron Highlands and was never seen again. Some believe he was kidnapped in relation to his work as a spy, whilst others fear he was eaten by a tiger: either way, it remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in South East Asia.

Rooms at Cameron Highlands Resort

Plantation shutters, timber-beamed ceilings, and bespoke teak furniture create a marvellously nostalgic feel at Cameron Highlands Resort. In the 56 elegant rooms, you can lie back on your four poster bed and enjoy views of the golf course, strawberry scattered hills, and lush green forest. As for families, the connecting two-bedroom suites are ideal.

Food and Facilities

Empire-builders would definitely have approved of the cuisine at Cameron Highlands Resort which combines traditional English comfort food, with exciting Malaysian dishes. As well as a cosy tea room, where you can enjoy plantation-grown tea, and freshly baked scones, there’s also a Japanese restaurant and Sake bar, serving hotpot, teppan, and a range of Japanese whiskies and traditional rice wines.

Activities at Cameron Highlands Resort

Tea-lover or otherwise, a visit to the surrounding tea plantation is a must – not just to sample the perfect cuppa, but for the history and spectacular views across the undulating hills. The cultivated landscape is also abundant with strawberries (there’s nothing better than plucking one straight off the bush, and sampling it with a dollop of cream), as well as traditional English rose gardens. But it’s when you venture into the forest that things start to get really interesting. There are number of trails to follow, as well as more strenuous hikes, and along the way you can see enchanting waterfalls and indigenous villagers. For more culture, and great hand-crafted souvenirs, head to the Pasar Malam night market. After all that exploring, the best way to relax is with a lovely tea-soak at the Spa Village Cameron Highlands.
