FRASER'S HILL RESORT & SPA PLAN Badan Warisan Malaysia is saddened to learn of the recent destruction of important heritage buildings in Fraser’s Hill, which has resulted in the loss of priceless history and architectural heritage. BWM is deeply concerned about the unnecessary destruction of the country’s built heritage. BWM Council is issuing this statement to disagree with this act of built heritage demolition.

The news was shared by the Malaysian Heritage Agency (Badan Warisan Malaysia/BWM). They expressed their concern over the natural site of Fraser’s Hill where the development is set. It is understood that the project will be established at Allan’s Water, a recreational lake that used to be a source of hill water.
For those curious, the resort, known as Fraser’s Hill Resort & Spa, is developed by Ikhasas Group and will provide 181 rooms as well as other facilities. Although the site is private land, as a location that has its own historical values, many have been taking note of the importance of preserving the holiday destination.
Therefore, a petition was launched by the organisation which calls for the development project to be reviewed. At the time of writing (Tuesday, 4th August), the petition has gained over 5,000 signatures from the public.
