Puri Malacca, Malacca, Malaysia

As Malacca's only boutique hotel of a good standard, Hotel Puri had a distinguished beginning as the ancestral home of the descendants of Tan Kim Seng (1805-1864). He was a third generation Straits Chinese born in Malacca following his grandfather's migration in the 18th century from Eng Choon district of Fujian Province, China and became a very successful businessman in Malacca.

The hotel is small at the front but very ornate and typically Chinese. Carefully restored and preserved, it is a show house of the elegant Perankan manor exclusive to Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. Here, you will find all the distinct characteristics of homes from the grand era. Around the property you will see solid ancient marble and wood, intricately carved wall panels, finely decorated stairwells, small pond, lush green garden and quaint cafe, recreating an unique and charming ambience. There are 82 rooms in total including large two floor suites with more traditional decor although no windows to the outside.
