Review: Cameron Highlands Resort

Last year, Capt'n Hook booked us into Cameron Highlands Resort (CHR) to celebrate BoiBoi and my birthday. We stayed a total of 2 nights and we have to say we're charmed by not only the resort but the staff as well.

We have stayed here, formerly known as Merlin Inn, prior to YTL's refurbishment of this building across the golf course. Since this is a YTL's resort... everything just spell posh and the best thing of all... is the service which is of course excellent at all times. Kudos to the management in training the staff to be on all alert. Every little gesture is appreciated.

As I've read the reviews on Tripadvisor, CHR have this ceremonial of lighting up the fire place at 7.00pm everyday and they actually allow guests to do the honour. Capt'n Hook arranged to have this done for both of us as he casually mentioned that it was our birthday. We were even served cocktail after that. The staff had a little accident while doing that and the manager on stand by was very apologetic.

By the time we got back to our room after dinner, surprise surprise... we have a beautiful birthday cake together with a framed picture of BoiBoi and I lighting up the fireplace.

One thing to highlight, they have turn down service and on the first evening, BoiBoi's Beary got a star treatment as he had left Beary on the bed before we went out for dinner. The next night, the rose was casually placed on the bed.

To summarised, CHR is a nice place to chill out with every little attention of details taken care of, all you need to do is a book and a mug of hot chocolate to sit by the fireplace or balcony. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only one nagging thing which almost every guests would complain is the noise from the vehicles passing by the main road. In the still of the night, the sound does get magnified. Since we lived in a noisy area, it doesn't really posed a problem for us. If you're a light sleeper, just let them know when you place your booking so that they'll place you on higher floor.
