Bukit Larut (Maxwell Hill) is the smallest highland in Malaysia. And if you are thinking of having a vacation getaway that is completely peaceful, this could well be the place to stay over. There are several government rest house accommodation and one commercial accommodation available for you to stay over if you so wish to give it a try.
Since I have not stay in any, so I have no idea about their condition. Though if my thinking is like anybody, I would probably go for the commercial accommodation – Cendana Hut – managed by Kamatravel & Tours Sdn Bhd. This company also have another hotel accommodation located near the Lake Gardens. You might pass by this little resort called Kamalodge on the way to the Bukit Larut office.

Cendana Hut also has nice balcony where you can have your meal with a good panorama view of Taiping! The place is not very big, so it all just about rest and relaxation.
