History and heritage go hand-in-hand in Malaysia’s flourishing port city of the yesteryears – Malacca. 

What better way to enjoy the culture and colours of this colonial town than by staying at The Majestic Malacca, a structure that has been an integral part of Malacca’s history since 1929! 

The grand façade of the hotel as seen today was once a part of the private mansion belonging to a Chinese tycoon. In its early years, it wasn’t uncommon for wealthy British planters to spend a night or two here and the hotel has even played host to Malaysia’s first Prime Minister, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj. 

The Majestic Malacca houses 54 luxurious rooms and suites, each  carefully furnished to evoke luxury, heritage and modernity.

After all the sightseeing, check into the hotel’s Spa Village that bases its therapies on knowledge derived from ancient Peranakan traditions.

Treat yourself to a suam-suam panas or a shiok-shiok sejuk experience that are specifically concocted around a person’s warm or cool energies. You can also opt for the Malacca palm-sugar and honey body scrub or a traditional herbal Malay wrap that truly soothes the skin and rejuvenates the body.

No trip to Malacca can be complete without sampling some sumptuous local cuisine that brings together a medley of Portuguese, Dutch, British and Peranakan flavours. At Melba at The Mansion, savour delicious Kristang dishes prepared by Chef Melba Nunis such as the Ayam Kari Keluak, Inchimintu Karangezu (Baked Stuffed Crab), Kaldu Laksa Malaka (Malacca Laksa) and Kek Sugee (Sugee Cake).
