The Chateau is the world’s first organic spa and wellness resort. Nestled in the 150-million-year-old tropical rainforest of Berjaya Hills in Bukit Tinggi; The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort transports you to a French medieval era. It’s just an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. Which makes it an ideal weekend getaway. The resort is replicated after a French castle. The Chateau boasts 200 elegant rooms and suites.
The Resort was opened in 2012. It was solely made for couples and honeymooners. Recently they have opened their doors for families with children as well. This has further increased its popularity. Another reason to explore this French themed resort. Our kids enjoyed the place as well as we did.
We are a family of five so we booked a three room executive suite. It was very spacious and elegantly decorated. All the three rooms had decent sized bathrooms. The living room had an extra toilet. The master bedroom had a jacuzzi. The suite was worth the price. All the bedrooms had wonderful scenic views of the lush forest and mountains.
The Chateau may look like a medieval castle, but it’s equipped with all the modern facilities. The Chateau offers some of the finest technologically advanced spa facilities in Asia. A premier award winning spa destination where you can relax and enjoy the natural beauty.

There are a lot of recreational activities around this resort. They have built a world class adventure park for the thrill seekers. The most notable one is the Flying Fox zip line.

Experience Zen at the finest manicured Japanese Village and don’t forget to enjoy tea at the beautiful Japanese tea house. Our kids loved the Koi fish streams and ponds around the garden.

The breakfast buffet was indeed lavish and laden with organic fruits, vegetables, cheeses, breads and what not. I loved the way they had prepared a variety of omelettes. The tea counter had a number of unique flavouring teas and coffee.
