There is no doubt, the best luxury hotel here in Cameron Highlands is Cameron Highlands Resort, and their delightful spa is just another conformation for this statement. After all, even if you are not the resident of the resort, it is worth to give them a visit. Especially after long jungle trekking or to cool down from hot Kuala Lumpur. Continue reading our Cameron Highlands Spa review and see how lovely this spa is.
Colonial style continues throughout the Cameron Highlands Resort Spa, while the open design effortlessly connects you to nature. Inevitably it begins with an open-air arrival, but the sounds of running water and singing jungle birds do triumph. It is the connection between outside and inside that brings a unique feel to the experience.
Spa Village Cameron Highlands
Spa Village is famous for recognizing surroundings and combining it with local traditions in the spa treatments. We have mentioned before the rock stars of Cameron Highlands; strawberries and tea. Both splendidly entangle English roots into beauty treatment. So do the roses and mint, which can be extended by various ala carte treatments.
Don’t miss the healing therapies that are based on ancient knowledge of the local indigenous people! Even though the life of the native, Orang Asli people took a “modern” turn, some knowledge has been preserved. Well, not just preserved, but put in action via the Semai treatment for her and him.

Tea & More
After meeting the charming receptionist, we found ourselves sipping chamomile tea under the outdoor gazebo. There we filled up the spa questionnaire while appreciating the tranquilizing view.
You’ll get sarong regardless of the therapy you choose because you’ll need it to enter the tea bath. Show respect and keep the sarong on as long as you are in the company. Only when you’ll be alone, you can take advantage of the privacy and unwind. Enjoy the benefits of a warm bath filled with black tea’s antioxidants. Keep in mind that the skin has to be clear to absorb the nutrients. Therefore, the Spa Village Cameron Highlands Resort provides sugar scrub for the whole body. You can apply it freely by yourself and continue with the use of eye mask and lime slices for areas with hard skin.
After the warm bath, we stopped outside to cool down with a heated neck pillow. We felt incredibly relaxed during our time in the fresh air and excited about the upcoming massage. Before entering the massage room, we got a new set of heated towels to accompany us on the short walk.
Traditional Malay Massage
We loved the long kneading strokes down the muscles with incorporated acupressure. Surely the massage worked wonders on our relaxed body due to the soothing motion alone. However, the Malay tradition includes plant support next to the action. The healing spice combination invigorates circulation while it helps to detoxify the body. At first, I was concerned about the possible unpleasant smell of garlic and onion in massage oil, but my doubts were put to rest with citronella and cinnamon in the blend. The finish of our pampering time couldn’t be nicer; quick wipe of our feet with a hot towel for excess oil absorption.
Each treatment is possible as an individual experience or in a company of a loved one, except Ala Carte Experience. We loved sharing the extremely pleasant experience at the Cameron Highlands spa and came out feeling light as a feather and rejuvenated. We highly recommend visiting Cameron Highlands Spa, after hiking in the what is left from Cameron Highlands jungle. There shouldn’t be any excuses for the spa; everyone deserves to be spoiled here and there.
