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.
The hotel's rooms and suites are each designed in a classical Chinese-Malaysian style, featuring dark wood furniture including four poster beds. The en suite bathrooms have modern glass showers and stand-alone baths, and are designed to be a part of the bedroom, although they have shutters for privacy. Amenities include TVs, telephones, hairdryers, full minibars, safes and air conditioning.
The Majestic and Tranquerah Suites have the same layout and design as the Deluxe rooms, but boast an additional living room with a second TV, sofa, coffee table and washroom.
The Majestic is located three hours south of Kuala Lumpur, which is bursting with the varied culture of Malaysia. The hotel is situated right in the middle of Malacca, with views over the river, and is just a 15 minute drive (traffic dependent) to the cultural centre of Jonker Street for local restaurants, temples and the night market.
Food and Drink
The restaurant at the hotel serves a hot and cold buffet as well as à la carte options for breakfast. It also offers à la carte dishes for dinner, with the meal options being predominately Malaysian with Western influences. Afternoon tea and cocktails are served either in the restaurant or the lobby of the hotel each day.
Rooms can be interconnected to accommodate families. A babysitting service is also available.
Facilities and Activities
The hotel features an outdoor pool, a small gym and a library for use by all hotel guests. Laundry and valet services are also available.
An optional free walking tour is run daily from the hotel at 5pm, depending on the weather. It lasts for two hours and takes you on an historical tour of the city. In addition, the hotel can organise rickshaw rides, river cruises and golf at an additional cost.
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.
