Sungei Palas Tea Garden
History of Sungei Palas Tea Garden
BOH acquired the Sungei Palas Tea Garden in the 1950’s. At the time, the land was in a dire state and a far cry of what it is today. However, BOH’s then Chairman, Tristan Russell, saw the potential of Sungei Palas and over the years turned the ailing land into a lush tea garden recognisable across Malaysia and by international travellers.
With tourism continuing to grow in the Cameron Highlands region, BOH built the visitor centre and café in 2007. Dubbed J.A.’s balcony after BOH’s founder J.A. Russell, its iconic 20-foot overhanging balcony that doubles as viewing deck has made Sungei Palas Tea Garden a must-visit destination in the Cameron Highlands. In 2019, the visitor centre was expanded to include a new section. Aptly dubbed Tristan’s Terrace, the new section has a seating capacity of 200 people with a gorgeous panoramic view, which only enhancing the unique hospitality experience and tea-drinking pleasures BOH offers.
