Colmar Tropicale is a picturesque French-themed resort with fantasy-like surrounds, settling at 2,700 feet above sea level amidst 80 acres of natural rainforest in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang. This village, situated in verdant highlands in Kuala Lumpur, is modelled after the lovely 18th century city of Colmar in Alsace, France and houses quaint French cafés, art galleries, lively street performances, and plenty of exciting activities for visitors of all ages – great for a short weekend getaway from KL city.
A medieval French village in the middle of a Malaysian rainforest, Colmar Tropicale features a castle drawbridge which leads to a massive cobblestone courtyard filled with colourful flowers, park benches, a water fountain, wishing well, and an intricate cuckoo clock tower that’s inspired by France’s Riquewihr Tower.
Offering a day of fun-filled activities for kids, Colmar Tropicale has a children’s playground and playroom, arcade machines, clown performances, and street performances by local and international artists. There are also plenty of retail stores in the main courtyard, where guests can purchase unique handicrafts for loved ones back home while adventure seekers can participate in various recreational activities such as horseback riding, jungle trekking, paintball, mountain biking, water volleyball, and archery.
For dining, Colmar Tropicale has seven French-themed eateries that cater to almost every budget level. La Cigogne is a fine dining restaurant that serves authentic French cuisine while La Boulengarie is a French bakery with homemade sandwiches and freshly-brewed coffee. Great for laidback evenings, diners can enjoy a wide range of imported wines at Le Vin Wine & Cigar Bar or enjoy fresh pizza and pastas at La Flamme.
As if it wasn’t baffling enough to find a French village in the middle of a Malaysian forest, a tranquil Japanese village can be found a short distance down the road. Part of the same attraction, it features an authentic Japanese tea house and restaurant, spa centre, and a botanical garden. Visiting families can also visit over 200 rabbits, deer, and donkeys at Colmar Tropicale’s mini animal park.
