Travel & Places to Visit

Colmar Tropicale, Berjaya Hills (Part 1)

Last week, we went for a short resort holiday in Malaysia with my parents, my brother and his family. School holiday is here, and going on a short vacation is a wonderful and relaxing way to take a break from the hurried and stressful lives that so many of us are facing.

This trip was a perfect blend of fun, excitement and relaxation. It’s a pity that V is unable to join us due to his work commitment. So, I flew solo to KL with Little Edison, met up with my family members and drove to Berjaya Hills together.

As an introduction, Colmar Tropicale is a unique French-themed resort that sits 2,700 feet above sea-level. The first of its kind in Malaysia, this resort is inspired by the 16th Century Colmar Village in Alsace, France.

Visitors can indulge in a truly continental French experience in this resort, alongside beautiful architecture and historically-designed landmarks that will surely bring them a step back in time.

This resort is located at Bukit Tinggi in the Pahang state. It’s about 2 hours drive from the KL LCCT airport. My brother has earlier booked a two-bedroom suite that can accommodate a family of 6 in comfort. We checked-in to our suite at around 5pm. We quickly took a shower and went out for an evening stroll.

Here are some pictures of our two-bedroom suite. It is very clean and spacious, with a living area, kitchen area, two separate bedrooms (both rooms with attached toilets) and a common toilet.

This bedroom (pictures above) is really VERY spacious. It has a two-door wardrobe and two side tables, next to the king-size bed. It has ample space for the kids to run around, and we also requested for an additional bed in this room.
