#MYTravelAdventure #TravelokaMY – The Banjaran Hotsprings & Retreat, Ipoh Perak.

Day 1

Our first experience at The Banjaran Hotsprings & Retreat Ipoh, Perak. Seriously I think this is the best resort I've ever stayed in Malaysia. Privacy & close to nature. 

You can book through Traveloka at https://www.traveloka.com/en-my/ and search for The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. As you can see this resort offer 2 type of Villa.




Water Villa that cost you RM1650 per night and Garden Villa that cost RM1850 per night. Each villa has their own private pool. So cool right!!! 



Actually it is kind of easy to find The Banjaran. Take Ipoh Exit and follow the signboard to this resort. You will find a post guard that will check the name of guest on that day. Yes, they seriously take a privacy matter. No public entrance to this resort, only the guest. Oh, just so you know this resort is preferred for couple or newly married because we can't bring child to the hotel as it is probably can disturb other guest.

                           





Yeah that is my husband enjoying his welcome drink. I think it is lemongrass + ginger. It is kind of drink that we use to drink in the spa hehe. We arrived a little bit earlier, so the staff take us sightseeing first around the resort and ride the buggy. The staff were so nice to us. Of Course, it is 5 star hotel! 



The 'Gendang' is like a tradition, whenever new guest is arriving we have to knock this Gendang. Yessss, the sound is so loud that entire resort can heard you haha!



Yeah our villa is Garden Villa No.9. Jaw dropping to see the big private pool. For me, I am so excited! Yeahh I can jump in the pool after this! 





The staff brief to us about the villa. Each of the things they telling us. Nice staff indeed. The key are like watch. They are waterproof. 



The hall. Look at the queen haha. We kinda excited so we take picture every corner of the villa hehehe. The biggest villa I've ever stay in my life!



Wohooo the private pool!



The bathroom so big. Bigger than my room at home =P

The housekeeper send this prayer mat for us...Although we didn't request any. So lovely. 


Time for us to have fun in the pool! 

This is geothermal water Jacuzzi! The water is so warm and natural. Love it so much! It is located at the back of the villa. So you have private pool and private Jacuzzi! 

Later that night, we have our romantic dinner inside the Jeff Cellar which is a limestone cave. Inside is very spectacular! If you want to have dinner inside the Jeff Cellar, have to make a reservation first.
