Last week, my family had a nice retreat weekend to Felda Residence Hot Springs, Sungkai, Perak.
Sungkai is a small town near to Bidor, accessible from either North-South Expressway or federal trunk road.
The Felda Residence Hot Springs is quite some distance away from Sungkai town, hiding deep inside an oil palm plantation area. Not to be worried, there are a lot of sign boards showing the way to this attraction along the way, so it is pretty easy to find.
We booked a 3-bedroom villa from MATTA Fair quite some times ago. The price was RM600 for one night stay including breakfast for 6 persons.
After entering the entrance, we need to register our stay and get the key of the villa from the reception, located in a building with a large car park in front of it. The hot springs park and villas are located quite some distance away from the reception building.
The 3-bedroom villa is very nice. It has a quadrangle design with a private Jacuzzi at the center.
It has a nice living room with flat panel TV...
... and a fully furnished kitchen.
Its 3 bedrooms are large and comfortable. This is the master bedroom.
The Felda Residence Hot Springs has a cold mountain springs swimming pool...
... and of course, the natural hot springs pool.
In the place where hot springs flow out from underground, we can have egg boiling activity. The water temperature there is close to 100 degree Celcius.
We had our dinner in Sungkai town. There are a few famous Chinese restaurant in the town, such as Choy Kee (财记) and Sun Kee (新记).
The next morning, we had our buffet breakfast at the restaurant within walking distance from the villa. There is nothing much to shout about the food, but considered quite OK if you don't have high expectation.
One thing to note is that, Celcom has a good HSDPA Internet coverage at Felda Residence Hot Springs in Sungkai, while the Internet speed of Maxis and Digi there is pretty slow.
