Selesa Resort Bukit Tinggi

P1010038I think it should be around National Day that we went to Bukit Tinggi, after we came back from Kuching. Actually, we stayed at Selesa Resort Bukit Tinggi because Bebe’s friend and contractor, Alan has an account here. Previously, he did the air-conditioning works for the resort and the management still owing some outstanding payments. That is why the resort proposed him to come and stay and offset the accounts.

Selesa Resort located at the gentle hills of Bukit Tinggi. We stayed at 3 bedrooms air-conditioned apartment but the air-conditioners spoilt already. Our family had a small room, Lim (Bebe’s 2nd boss) took another room and Alan with his daughter took the master room with bathroom attached.

It have various of facilities: the outdoor swimming pools and the children swimming pool is the one that attracted me, because it is just besides the Coffee House. From the Coffee House, you can view the pools. The views is good, but the interior finishes need to change, too old already…

P1010048Berjaya Hills

It is the nearest attraction area to the Selesa Resort, it is sited 2,700-3,500 feet above sea level. Its many attractions includes Colmar Tropicale – a French Themed Resort, Berjaya Hills Golf & Country Club, Japanese Village and the Rabbit & Deer Farm.

Rabbit Park
Rabbits, rabbits everywhere! All the children love to cuddle and feed them. It is really a delightful experience the whole family can enjoy. Issac was so excited when touched and grabbed the rabbits. There are white, black and grey rabbits.

P1010056 Deer Sanctuary
Shy and elusive in the wild, these beautiful white spotted deer and the Timorese’s Deer, originally from Holland and Sulawesi, Indonesia, delighted every one of us. Annabelle and mummy taken a photograph in front of the deer fences.

Donkey RidesP1010053
Children read about them in fairy tales. Here, they can see and touch real live donkeys, and best of all, enjoy a ride to remember. During we were there, the rides is not available, but Issac manage to touch the donkey hair with the help of Daddy to bring him went near.

Japanese Village

Located 3,500 feet above the sea, the Japanese Village is the first of its kind outside Japan. The garden was planned and designed by renowned Japanese architect, Mr Kaio Ariizumi and built by a team of 22 skilled craftsmen from Japan.

From the chumon (entrance gate) to stone lanterns, from wood roofing shingles to tatami mats, and countless other artefacts, the Japanese Garden is the epitome of authencity in design and craftsmanship.

P1010067 Step through a rustic gateway and a winding Japanese footpath leads you through a beautiful garden to a waterfall, over a bridge spanning a koi pond and up to a Japanese Tea House & Garden. Every detail you see captures the spirit of Japanese craftsmanship at its most authentic.

The Tea House lies at the heart of the Village. A natural stream filled with koi completes the tranquil setting. Guests and visitors may participate in a Japanese tea ceremony.

The only Japanese restaurant in Malaysia that is located in the midst of a tropical rainforest high up in the hills of the Main Range. Ryo Zen Tei Japanese Restaurant, with a menu that offers everything from a bowl of udon to an authentic bento, it is the perfect place to relax after a visit to the Japanese Village.

The detailing, from tatami mats to wood-frame paper screen doors, Ume Tatami Suite captures the essence of Japanese architecture and design to offer exclusive luxurious living in the solitude of a tropical rainforest.

Tatami Spa…the first of its kind outside Japan. Set in the tranquillity of an authentic Japanese Garden and surrounded by tropical rain forest, its breathtaking ambience takes you worlds away from care and worries.

We did not manage to go in the tea house nor the restaurant…because you can imagine that, the very first located high up at Bukit Tinggi, sure have magnificent price as well!

Botanical Garden

A 1km walkway weaves through this 4-acre tropical rainforest and leads to viewing decks with views over the countryside. Be amazed by towering trees, ferns, orchids and rarely seen flora. Don’t miss the horticultural experiments to cultivate temperate fruits…pears, apples and 7 different types of strawberries. It is really a tough walk that we had been through, because I had to carry Belle with me in my arms. A very good exercise!

P1010077 Colmar Tropicale

Inspired by the original Colmar Village in Alsace, France, Colmar Tropicale is a picture postcard come alive! At its heart is Colmar Square, a cobblestone central courtyard where you can enjoy outdoor dining and street performances. There are street and clown performers. It was so happened that when we were there, the clown is making some funny animals and toys using the colourful balloons; Issac got his sword, Belle got a quite little doggie. There is a pond with the residents black and white swans… There was a few restaurants serves  fine cuisines and dining experiences.

Chateau Spa & Wellness Resort

Modelled after the Haut-Koenigsbourg, the medieval castle in the Vosges Hills of Alsace, The Chateau Spa & Wellness Resort offers all the delights of a 18th Century Renaissance French Boutique Hotel & Spa. But, it is not open yet during our visits.

Hope can come again and take more photos back…
