Offering a breathtaking view of Bukit Fraser’s lush highlands and clear skies, this pretty blue penthouse is the place to be for a quiet getaway from the bustling city, as it’s a short two-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. The cold and fresh air is also a refreshing change of climate. While the unit can fit up to four people, we recommend two for a more spacious and quality stay with a close friend or loved one.
