How do you describe a place in Colmar, France? Nothing beats the Berjaya Group of making one instead.
The group definitely has gone there as well as replicate as much as they can in order to present a similar French Village at Bukit Tinggi, Pahang.
Welcome to Colmar Tropicale, which translates as Colmar at tropical weather.
I have been to Colmar Tropicale 3 times prior to this review, why only now I share this? TripAdvisor was not existed when I first went there :)
It is rather nice to drive, cycle or ride a bike to Bukit Tinggi, not that many cars or vehicles around, and the scenery is great.
Once you have arrived at the entrance of Colmar, there is an entrance fee of RM12 per pax. So, get ready to pay.
I love the architecture there, but it is seriously lacking in terms of refurbishing. But I guess the team is working on this.
All in all, a nice place to get away from Kuala Lumpur for a nice breath.

The realization of this French themed village derived from the wish list of the Malaysia's fourth Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, who upon his visit to the region of Alsace were so impressed, that it inspired Tan Sri Vincent Tan, the founder of Berjaya Corporation Berhad to replicate the actual Colmar town in Malaysia.The resort comprised of 235 rooms and suites, offers 8 food & beverage outlets / lounges with food variety ranging from local & international cuisine to an authentic French fine dining restaurant.
