To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of this blog, PZ and I got pampered (after 12 months of intense blogging) in a new wellness resort which just opened in Malaysia at the foothills of the legendary Tambun limestone hills and hot springs: The Banjaran.
Located near the city of Ipoh (Perak), 2 hours by car from Kuala Lumpur, The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is the ultimate heaven for relaxation, offering lifestyle enhancement inspired by authentic Malaysian practices.
Surrounded by stunning mountains, caves and deep jungle, you can enjoy the natural hot springs with temperatures ranging between 35°C to 70°C (I was happily cooked like a lobster in the dipping pods), a thermal steam cave (if you want more heat), a fish spa, where hundreds of Garra Rufa fish will eat your dead skin (if you are not too ticklish) and of course a very good spa with a wild range of body treatments.
Designed specifically for short-terms stays, this unique place will surely become a landmark of healing hospitality in South-East Asia because of its natural resources from thousand of years, its 25 villas (each villa set within your own garden, private pool and Jacuzzi geothermal tub) and the magic of the mystic jungle of Malaysia (especially at night).
Enjoy this journey through tranquillity and relaxation and a big THANK YOU to all of you Frog and Princess blog followers: You are 15,000 every month and it keeps on growing, coming from all over the world. We hope to make you discover more amazing places, unique hotels, business tips and many more fun things to do!
