Where to stay in Bukit Tinggi
There are two resorts that I personally recommend to stay during your visit to Bukit Tinggi :
1. The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort
This resort is famous for their spa and wellness services so if you happen to stay here, do not forget to experience their excellent spa treatment. It is a first European spa resort in Asia and it is definitely a place to get ultimate relaxation for your muscles and mind.
2. Colmar Tropicale Berjaya Hills
Colmar Tropicale is a beautiful french-themed resort that inspired by the original town of Colmar in France.

Things to Do in Bukit Tinggi
1. Exploring Colmar Tropicale
Whether you stay in this beautiful French-themed resort or just a day trip, you should come and explore around here. There are a few restaurants and shops to stop by and the place is perfect for you to take some nice pictures. I recommend to visit this place during Christmas time. it is so beautiful with a lot of decorations and lights.
2. Visiting the Botanical Gardens and Japanese Village
The Japanese Village and Botanical Gardens are situated 3500 feet above sea level. Both places are located just next to each other. The main attraction in the Japanese Village is the Japanese tea house where you can learn more about Japanese culture by participating in the tea ceremony. You can also rent a Japanese kimono to take pictures. The Japanese Village is a must place to visit when you come here because the place is so beautiful and it is the first Japanese tea house in Malaysia.
3.Stopping by the Animal Park
If you travel with kids, they will absolutely love to come to this place. You can let them play with cute animals like deer and rabbit. Kids are also allowed to get a ride on a donkey.
4. Visiting the Adventure Park
If you are looking for more extreme activities, you can come to the adventure park that offers fun activities such as paintball, canopy walking, a flying fox and rope climbing etc.
Bukit Tinggi Berjaya Hills is really suitable for families or a couple trip. I recommend to just stay for a night or a day trip because there are not many activities to do around there. You can easily finish all the activities in 1 or 2 days. Coming via shuttle transfer to Berjaya Hills is a good choice as you can avoid paying the entrance and parking fee and get free entrance tickets to the Japanese Village and Botanical Gardens. Also, there is a free shuttle bus provided to go to the activities venue so you do not have to worry if you did not drive a car to Berjaya Hills. Overall, Berjaya Hills is a good destination for a short getaway and it is the perfect place for relaxing with your family or loved one.
