This air-conditioned hotel is an integral part of Malacca's colourful history. The original serene mansion, dating back to the 1920's, remains at the heart of the hotel, whilst a new building has been created, mirroring the original architecture, to house 54 spacious rooms and suites. The design integrates old with new, modern with historic, ensuring that the total experience is one that is authentic, honouring the past while bringing every modern convenience to bear. There is a lobby with a 24-hour reception, a restaurant and conference facilities. Guests can also use the laundry service.
Located on the banks of the river, which in yesteryear teemed with Chinese junks and spice-laden vessels from all over the world, this city hotel provides a glimpse into the splendid saga of an extraordinary empire. The tourist centre, Jonker's Street, and the Stadhuys are a 15-minute drive from the hotel. A'Famosa (fort) and the Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum can be reached by car in 20 minutes.
Each en suite room is sumptuously appointed, in an elegant combination of luxury, tradition and modernity. Bespoke furnishings call to mind the glory days of old Malacca, while floor to ceiling windows framed by silk drapes bathe the room with soft light. Standing on warm timber floors are inviting four-poster beds finished in rich teak and dressed in cool cottons with an ornate silk runner. A matching silk-upholstered chaise lounge provides a cosy spot to gaze out over the river, letting guests' imaginations take them back in time, or simply curl up with a book. Facilities include a hairdryer, direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV, minibar, tea and coffee making facilities and a safe.
Guests can enjoy the swimming pool in the hotel grounds. There is a gym, and spa treatments are also on offer.
The dining room offers dishes from Portuguese, Dutch, English, and Baba-Nyonya cultures. This venue accommodates up to 106 guests and has two private dining room options. The Bar at The Mansion is the perfect place to unwind and relax; the atmosphere is in traditional colonial style, and provides a luxurious location to relax. Guests can choose from an extensive range of whiskey, cocktails and other drinks.
