Cameron Highlands Resort by YTL Group
Need a little pampering? Whether you want a relaxing family getaway or a romantic interlude, that's not too far out from KL, look no further than the latest offering from the YTL Group.
The old Merlin Hotel property which fronts the Cameron Highlands's public golf course has been taken over and given a thorough refurbishment. This new "concept" resort offers breathtaking scenery, lush greenery, Tudor-styled cottages and includes a Spa Village (in Camerons!), a Japanese restaurant, Jim Thompson tea room and other up-scale dining options. With just 56 rooms and suites, you'll have loads of privacy while being served in a discreet professional manner by the same people who put Pangkor & Kuala Terengganu on the world map for discerning travellers everywhere (they also run Pangkor Laut Resort and Tg Jara Resort).
Previous tip-Written in 2004
I stayed at the Merlin Resort many years ago and when I drove past this month (June 2004), it looks almost the same. Did not go inside, but the outside has been maintained quite well.
Scenic views of the Golf Course.
Within walking distance of key attractions.
Many areas to explore on foot and to enjoy the cool, fresh air.
Unique Quality: Nearby to the Golf Course. Lots of walking trails.
It's also within walking distance to a strawberry farm and some stalls selling fresh vegetables and strawberries and souveniors.
Directions: Next to the Golf Course at Brinchang.
Read my transportation tips on how to get there using either Tapah route or Simpang Pulai Route.
