Cameron Highlands
Bala's Holiday Chalet, Cameron Highlands

Staying in town is not a good idea of a highland holiday when nature surrounds you. You should pamper yourself with history, spacious rooms overlooking picturesque gardens and crackling log fires warming up the cool highland night.

You'll get all of these at the The Bala's Holiday Chalet Located on the edge of Tanah Rata town, The Bala's Holiday Chalet has cozy accommodations, reminiscent of an English country hotel overlooking the tropical forest. Set amidst lush greenery, rolling hills and majestic mountains the establishment offers you good value for money.

Bala's Holiday Chalet was one of the first highlands places to provide accommodation for visitors.  It was run by Mr Balakrishnan himself and his wife Shyamala, it was built in 1935 and was originally the Tanglin Primary School, a private boarding school for the children of European tea planters.

Today, Bala's chalet has 25 cottage style  rooms offering good value for money to travelers. Word has got around that the super curries turned out by their chefs are simply mouthwatering, so much so that the Sultan of the State ordered his dinner there while on a visit to the highlands. Their tea and scones found its way into the in-flight Magazine of the Malaysia Airlines as being the best in the highlands. With so much history, tradition, good food and comfort, one still wonders why people come up to the highlands to stay in the town.
