The Majestic Malacca is an integral part of Malacca's colourful history. The original 1920s mansion remains at the heart of the hotel, while a newer building mirrors the original architecture. The design integrates the modern with the historic, and 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.
Rooms and suites are spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing plenty of natural light and views over the Malacca River, while the award-winning spa provides therapies based on Baba-Nyonyam techniques, combining Chinese and Malay culture. The restaurant looks over the river and Kampung Morten, allowing guests to dine on Nyonya cuisine in a casual atmosphere, and at the end of a busy day of exploring The Bar is the place to unwind with a drink.
This is a very comfortable hotel that's steeped in history. It's well located in the city of Malacca, which is an excellent place for culture and history, containing many different temples, markets and museums.
