If you are looking for an exclusive wellness retreat with a Balinese makeover, look no further than Residence Hot Spring (FRHS) in Sungkai. It is located about 92km south of Ipoh.
Covering an area of approximately 6.5 hectares, FRHS has 250 sources of natural hot springs with healing properties to relieve skin conditions, stress, body aches and muscle sores, among others.
There are a total of 64 hotel rooms of varying types and 19 private villas with jacuzzis.
Enjoy the enduring beauty of the natural landscape when walking on the 200m boardwalk. Feel the warmth of the vapour rising from the hot springs below, as they envelop you.
Experience the curative miracle of algae (green moss), formed from sulphur content in the hot spring water, oozing out from the cracks in the granite rocks. The algae could be used as a scrub to brighten and soften one’s face.
Visitors can try, firsthand, boiling eggs in the small pools with the temperature hovering between 30 and 100 degree Celsius. All it takes is a good seven minutes to get the eggs hardened the natural way.
Equally fun is taking a ride on the All-Terrain Vehicle along an off-road track that passes by an Orang Asli settlement beside a meandering river bank and within sight of a cascading waterfall.
Unwind in the guest-friendly hot springs of varying temperatures before returning home feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.Address: Felda Residence Hot Springs, 35600 Sungkai, Perak.
