Hot Spring Ipoh

Did you know Malaysia has hot springs? There are a number of natural hot springs in Ipoh actually! Most belong to resorts that charge moderate to high entrance fees for walk-in visitors.

But there are a couple of hot springs scattered around Perak that are more affordable. Hot springs are good for rejuvenating your body and mind!

And fun for the whole family too~

For the premium prices charged, you can expect better and more facilities at your disposal if you visit a hot spring resort rather than a hot spring park.

The overall environment is generally more beautiful too!

1.1. Banjaran Hot Spring Ipoh

Starting our list with the most exclusive hot spring resort in Ipoh:

The Banjaran Hot Springs Retreat prides itself as a luxury resort.

Overnight guests of course, have full access to the facilities along with their gorgeous chalets and villas.

But if you just want to go there for the hot springs or massage services, then it’s possible to book their day ticket on their website!

Not going to lie, the price per person may shock you!

1.5. Trong Hot Spring

50 minutes’ drive north from Ipoh city is another hot spring resort in Changkat Jering.

But mostly, to sooth aching joints, skin ailments and to reap other health benefits from the natural hot spring waters (~50 to 60C)!

Private pools are available too. Call ahead to check if they’re open!
