Imagine the most luxurious, reinvigorating wellness retreat you could have over the weekend - that's probably something like what an escape to this eco-luxury hot spring resort in Malaysia would look like.
Um, hot water in a place that's already as hot as Southeast Asia? We know - but hear us out.
The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, near Malaysia's colonial city of Ipoh, is nestled amidst a lush 17-acre valley amidst 260 million-year old towering limestone hills, cascading waterfalls and verdant tropical rainforests, the Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat.
Although only a short 2 hours' plane ride away from Singapore, it feels so removed from the modern world, you'd have no trouble surrendering to all that Mother Nature has endowed upon this sanctuary.
