Hotel Majestic in Malacca
From the original porcelain flooring, teak-wood fittings, intricate artwork and antiques, to the finely crafted Nyonya cuisine, every aspect echoes the history of the region, and offers a beguiling journey through this enchanting heritage.
This is what The Majestic Malacca promises its guests when they visit the hotel, a mansion of 54 spacious rooms and suites. Though most part of the hotel is new, there’s an original mansion (part of the hotel) that was built in 1920.
This gorgeous hotel is in Malacca—located 148 kms from Kuala Lumpur—a city that has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 7 July 2008. Anuradha, who loved her stay at the Majestic Malacca mentions that if you open one of the pale green colored doors from any of the 54 suites, you are rewarded with views of the river and its busy watercraft plus original Malay style houses that dot the banks. And then I saw more pictures and knew I would never leave Malaysia without staying in this hotel!
Plus, the hotel offers its guests a complimentary walking tour around the 600-year-old narrow lanes of Melaka where descendants of the original migrants still continue to live – Indian populations exist in Little India, there are Chinese in Jonker Street and Portuguese in their trademark houses by the seaside.
