Straberry Park Resort Cameron Highlands

The location is not apparent as you are driving along the golf course save for a sign pointing to the direction of Strawberry Park Resort Cameron Highlands. Going up the winding road and passing by a road branch which incidentally would take you to that famous Moonlight Bungalow where Jim Thompson stayed before his disappearance, the winding road with lush jungle all around, it leads you to a road which ends with a superb view of Strawberry Park Cameron Highlands. It is as though you have just come out of the jungle and into civilized land.

Because of its height, sometimes the place is mist shrouded lending it an air of mystery and perhaps a hint of what could have befallen to Jim Thompson.

Entering the reception area, with its interior in tune with the old English setting and a bar reminiscent of and English Pub at the entrance to the Jim Thompson Terrace Restaurant, I made some inquiries about the various types of available accommodation.

If you like this place, they have basically four types of accommodation choice in this resort:

  • Studio - for 2 persons
  • Tioga - for 3 persons in a single bedroom
  • Fresno - for 4 persons in two bedrooms
  • Shasta - for 6 persons in three bedrooms

Should you be unable to finish utilizing the cash voucher, 50% of its value would be refunded to you upon check out. Of course this offers change from time to time so it would be best if you check it up with them on what is their latest offer packages.

Let's see what they have in terms of amenities in their rooms. They have:

  • Hot and cold running water. Definitely must have is the hot running water, Cameron Highlands is indeed cold especially at night.
  • IDD Call in case you want to call home overseas, though with roaming feature of your mobile phone you probably don't need to use the provided facility.

  • Lobby Bar - an English looking bar where you can have a drink next to a fake fireplace and ponder on the fate of Jim Thompson
  • The Lip's Discotheque - I wonder if there would be anybody be there at all
  • Strawberry Court Thai Restaurant - must be something to do with Jim Thompson coming from Thailand and getting lost in Cameron Highlands. So dine on with some Thai cuisine..

And last but not least, if you like you can experience the cold climate of Cameron Highlands out in the compound of Strawberry Park Resort while enjoy a hot charcoal steamboat meal. Brrr… it is really cold when a cool breeze blows by when I tried it out with my dear wife. I wouldn't consider it a romantic dinner in the open but nevertheless an interesting experience.
