Hotel at a glance

Perching above a skyline of terracotta rooftops that stretch outwards to vast views of the Malaccan Straits, the hotel stays comfortably within its central Melaka location, dotting the touring wayfarer’s walk to close-by shopping attractions such as the Dataran Pahlawan and Mahkota Parade malls. Glances upwards to the hotel’s summit renders views of streamlined balconies each flourishing with their own wisps of greenery, while beige, peach, and praline hues unify the ascent up to the two-tiered apex. A rich display of blossoming chandeliers hover above restrained symmetrical inlays while finely crafted blooms come in rotation within the centrefold, bringing a mood of floral brightness about the vicinity. Similarly dulcet tones of the outer shell can be found recurring within the hotel’s collection of abodes as smooth brown painted skins ground a culmination of cushioned beds and affixed artistic portrayals of the surrounding waterways.
  • Escape the midday heat with a dip in the hotel’s swimming pool, where one can saunter along the calm blue bath into an occasional setup of poolside dining and gatherings within the hotel’s Oasis on the Fourth eatery arrangement.
  • Slot in a session of rigorous exercise within the hotel’s Equinox Fitness Centre, where a complete array of weight machines and equipment lay awaiting subsequent health buffs. Afterwards, cool down with a relaxing spa treatment at TheraP. Spa, where beauty and massage therapies come on offer alongside sessions in the Jacuzzi and sauna.
  • Bask in the culinary spectrum on offer on the hotel’s grounds, including the buffet of Western and Asian delicacies at the Resthouse Cafe, local dishes and Italian eats at K5, the Street Bistro, as well as the authentic Nyonya offerings at Seri Nyonya Peranakan Restaurant, among others.

Malacca: What to see and do

Travel back in history to what was once the East’s more formidable city of influence and one of South-East Asia’s UNESCO Heritage Site that is Malacca. What began as a quiet fishing village quickly became the central trading ground for Asian and European merchants under the rule of its first sultan, Parameswara. Its heritage as an international port is deeply etched into the architecture, food, and people that make this state home. One of the artifacts left behind is Dutch Square. Coloured in deep dark maroon, what used to be an administrative building for the Dutch colonisers is now the main town square that graces many a greeting card and tourist photograph. Dutch Square is but the tip of the iceberg that is Malacca’s architectural heritage; there’s Fortaleza de Malaca, a Portuguese fort; Bastion House that once served as a British bank; and the Baba Nyonya Peranakan Museum housed in an actual Peranakan heritage home.

​Jonker Street is another favourite and is host to the ever popular Jonker Walk Night Market during Fridays and Saturdays, though when bathed in the harsh light of the weekday is more known for its aged yet nostalgically picturesque pre-war shop houses. Get a mouthful of history with samples of local cuisine, the front-runner being Baba-Nyonya food. Dishes that were once made in the confines of grandmothers’ kitchens have now become eponymous with the city’s fusion flair, along with Portuguese-Eurasian cuisine which one may find at the Portuguese Settlement, home to the descendants of former Portuguese colonisers.

Transporting you a century back with her colonial legacy which was influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch, and British, a port-city tour around the surviving building remnants brings you up close to the enduring reminder of the power wrests which keeps Malacca in the more dynamic sections of the ancient Malay annals.
