A lot of people left comment that Bala's is doing a lousy job in keeping the room from moisture, i must give Bala's a fair comment
i) Personally i think they did a good job in maintaining the claenliness & hygene of the rooms, bedsheet & toilet. Can anyone name a single area where they don't keep in clean?
ii) Cameron Highlands' climate by nature is damp and cold, and for this reason it attracts people like you and I. Especially with open air accomodation like Bala's, it is extremely hard to maintain low humidity in the room. Therefore it is not fair to compare Bala's with other hotel with enclosed / controlled ventilation system. I did see that the staffs open the window of vacant rooms everyday, trying to improve the ventilation and get rid of moist air.
iii) By design, the room in Bala's comes with fire place. Besides warming the room, the heat & radiation from the fire also keep the moisture at bay & helps in drying the air. Since the fire place is sealed off, there nothing we can do to take advantage of the fire place.
iv) I observed some rooms in Bala's is not exposed to sunlight (this doens't look good in Chinese "FengShui"), and ventilation of air is poor even with the window wide open. However, i recommend that they can try pointing the room with lights shone from high luminense mentol bulb. Believe the heat & radiation from the light would help in bringing the moisture down.
