360° Virtual Tour – The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat

The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is one of Malaysia’s most unique luxury wellness retreat. Hidden amidst the breathtaking limestone hills of Ipoh, Perak, this oasis is frequented by guests looking to relax and rejuvenate with bespoke acommodation, spa experiences, fine dining and wonderful hotsprings. The 360° Virtual Tour we created for them aimed to reflect the spectacular experience they offer in this one-of-a-kind retreat.

An aerial view of The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat greets you at the start of the virtual tour, giving you an overview of its beautiful limestone surroundings. You can click on the custom hotspots to visit different areas of the resort, from the lobby to the luxury villas, meeting and event venues, dining spaces, and wellness spaces.

We covered the Garden Villa and Lake Villa, highlighting their spacious rooms, jacuzzi, pool and private facilities. These are done using 4K high-quality photography, with hotel grade post production to bring out the finer details even further. This helps to facilitation decision-making for guests, as they can decide which villa is suitable for their leisure needs.

Most importantly, we included customised call-to-action buttons on the top left corner to maximise lead generation and conversion.

Caves and Low Light Photography

The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is known for their magnificent cave setting, with the perceived setback being the low lighting. Although low lighting is hard to capture with regular photography, our DSLR camera is able to take true-to-life images that bring out the romantic atmosphere and warm lighting of every cave.

Within the resort, there is Jeff’s Cellar, an award-winning fine dining restaurant tucked within a cave. The virtual walkthrough allows guests to walk through the dining halls, admire the limestone backdrop, and be serenaded by Italian aria. According to the client, guests have been in contact to request for special seating in the restaurant. Be sure to check out the Meditation Cave and the Crystal Cave as well, both equally impressive in their own way!

Starry, Starry Night

Want to see the resort during the day and night? Using a timelapse sequence, we made the Sky Bar come to life within one stunning panorama. Head to the Pomelo, and click on the Gazebo to see an impressive candle-light dinner set-up. There is also a photo album in the menu for those who wish to see some of the food photography our team took.

Through our professional and technical skills, our team is capable of adjusting our works for extreme conditions and requests. Now for something absolutely exciting: click on the telescope or menu listing to see a Starry Night, when the sky has darkened by the Star Deck. Look below to see the steam gently curling up from the hotsprings, and look above to see a sky full of twinkling stars!

We believe that visual storytelling, coupled by appealing and interactive content, makes a virtual tour meaningful, and all the more effective.

The virtual tour allows The Banjaran to promote their award-winning experience and romantic vibes to visitors through websites, mobile devices and tablets. After all, what they see is what they can get!
