The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat
A holistic hideaway, home to natural hot springs
- 45 villas
- Two bars
- Outdoor pool
- Hot springs
- Steam cave
Embraced by a leafy jungle setting and centred around geothermal hot springs, caves and waterfalls, this all-villa sanctuary promises a slice of serenity amongst nature. The 45 villas, backed by limestone cliffs, are set in the garden, overlooking the lake or a water canal.
Each airy villa encompasses a master suite, with a king-sized bed, soft tones and dark woods. The suite features a comfortable seating area, and opens up onto a private patio, an outdoor rain shower and a Jacuzzi hot tub, bubbling with natural geothermal water from the hot springs.
Wellness is pivotal to a salubrious stay at The Banjaran, and its eco-friendly spa is inspired by Asian philosophies, drawing on ancient ethnic traditions of Chinese, Indian and Malay cultures. Guests can focus on their overall wellbeing with the help of treatments, programmes, consultations and holistic exercises. The naturally heated outdoor swimming pool is another highlight of the resort, which can be enjoyed alongside the hot spring pools, a steam cave, ice baths and a fitness centre.
Pomelo, the on-site restaurant, with a charming thatched roof, focuses on creating well-balanced dishes, with fresh, regional ingredients, ensuring environmentally-friendly practices and supporting local industries. You can also consult with the chef and wellness director so that your meal plan is completely personalised. To escape the heat and find refreshments, guests can venture down to Jeff’s Cellar, a unique wine cellar, positioned within one of the caves. Illuminated by candles and with seating in hidden nooks, this bar serves organic and rare wines. Alternatively, you can opt for a bird’s eye view of the jungle, by taking to the SkyBar, perched on top of a limestone hill, with an upper deck that looks across the lake and another lounge, inside a softly-lit cave.
