How Air Hangat Village was formed?
Legend tells us that the hot springs were formed when two giants were fighting at a wedding, throwing pots, pans, and jugs at each other. A jug of boiling water fell into Air Hangat, creating the natural hot spring.
Originally the hot spring was the only attraction at Ayer Hangat, however, now the village features picturesque ponds and fountains, beautifully landscaped gardens, and soothing Jacuzzis. Not to mention the mouth-watering restaurant serving delicious Malaysian, Thai, and Indonesian dishes, the stalls selling an array of excellent gifts and souvenirs, and an area for cultural shows, Malaysian dance, kickboxing, and more. Hire a private jacuzzi in an independent unit for yourself and up to seven others. Hot salt water from the springs is pumped into the jacuzzi, removing toxins from your body, and eliminating your fatigue.
