A night at Colmar Tropicale Bukit Tinggi Pahang


I went for 1 day vacation to Bukit Tinggi Pahang last weekend and stay at Colmar Tropicale a European base design resort by Berjaya hotels.

Colmar Tropicale a relish in century old Alsace charm at this French-themed resort, settled at 2,700 feet above sea-level amidst 80 acres of rainforests.

It is a beautiful place, does make me feel that I’m in Europe for a little while. It took about 1 hour driving from KL to Bukit Tinggi. The drive path is not so steep and zigzag. It was way better than road to Cameron Highland. Colmar Tropicale entrance

Entrance of Colmar Tropicale. This place reminds me of Princess Fiona castle from Shrek movies Smile with tongue out

Below the bridge has a small pond with couple of white and black swan entertaining all guests.

There are several attractions near Colmar Tropicale they are Japanese Village, Botanical Garden, Rabbit park and Horse trail. You have to go to Japanese village & Botanical garden since they charge daily visitors RM12 per entry to both of this park. For me, it’s not really worth to see as it is so small, they have a replica of Japanese house which u can’t enter unless you want to try out kimono dress for RM20. After that you can walk to the guest house replica and take pictures there. I spend less than 20 minutes here just to take pictures of this place.

Next to this village is the botanical garden. I don’t go around it, just take few pictures at the entrance. look at this purple seed or flower or fruit.. I don’t know. it’s pretty.

Once I’m done with Japanese village and  Botanical garden, there’s nothing much I can do here. So we just walk around the resorts and try our luck playing expensive game. Approximately 3 token per game, 1 token = RM2. I didn’t win anything as usual. I spend my night playing billiard with my siblings Smile with tongue out. Rm3 per game.

They do have nice swimming pool. Too bad I forgot to bring my swimming suit.

I stay at 2 Bedroom suite for RM398 inclusive of breakfast buffet for 4 person. It’s cheap cause I bought the voucher at Matta Fair. It was the biggest room I ever stay for a vacation. I love it so much.

Food here is so expensive. There are few cafes and restaurant here. Medium pizza starting from Rm37, 1/4 chicken set with 2 dishes is Rm25++. If you willing to spend, it’s wise to take their dinner BBQ buffet for Rm55++ per person.
