Over The Majestic Malacca
Dit hotel ademt de historische sfeer van de stad waarin het gelegen is. Het koloniale verleden is overal in de details terug te vinden. Toch zijn er ook moderne kanten aan het hotel; het verleden wordt geëerd, terwijl er gebruik gemaakt wordt van de gemakken van tegenwoordig. Dit ziet u ook terug in de prachtige kamers. Deels traditioneel ingericht maar met moderne gemakken als een televisie en compleet ingerichte badkamer. Het hotel biedt u daarnaast een spa voor een stukje extra ontspanning en beschikt over een bar en restaurant. Zo heeft u alles binnen handbereik!
Insiders tipAanrader voor de gastronomen onder u is de Nyonya laksa bij Donald & Lily’s. Deze laksa staat bekend als de beste van Malacca. Wees er vroeg bij, tegen lunchtijd is het uitverkocht!

Malacca is een gezellige stad met veel overblijfselen uit het kleurrijke verleden van Maleise sultans en Portugese en Engelse kolonisten. Ook de Nederlanders hebben hier hun sporen achtergelaten, zoals de opvallend roodgekleurde Christ Church en het Stadthuys. In de nabijgelegen St. Paul's Church liggen zelfs nog grafstenen met oude Nederlandse teksten.
U kunt Malacca bezoeken op een dagtocht vanuit Kuala Lumpur, maar het is ook zeer zeker de moeite waard om hier ook te verblijven. Dan ervaart u de stad en de sfeer op haar best.
"Luxurious Hotel, with history thrown in...."
I booked a room over last weekend, to facilitate my plans to tour around my hometown like a tourist would. Making the choice for Majestic Malacca isn't hard as it's got lots of history behind it and being a member of SLH certainly lets you know you'll be surrounded by quality and luxury. I purchased a package listed of Expedia for a night's stay. The reception experience was great, the staff warmly and courteously handled my check-in from the time I drove into the (not so convenient open-air) car park. You could drop off the car in front of the hotel, but you'll have to drive out (unless you valet) around the block to get into the car park. The surroundings are kept meticulously clean and neat and the hedges and trees, trimmed and beautiful. It was as if I was stepping back into the colonial times when greeted with the aptly uniformed staff in their colonial times uniform. The room is elegantly decorated with a four poster bed and a clawfoot bathtub being the centerpieces. The hotel staff also brought along a rattan woven chinese teapot warmer, along with the tea inside to serve us. Amenities in the room didn't disappoint, except if I had to nitpick, apart from the bath salts, the bath foam for the tub wasn't provided. I did not get a chance to use the (smallish) swimming pool nor the glass walled gym that overlooked the pool. Nevertheless, like the hotel itself, it was well designed, and equipped. There is also a spa in the hotel for those would like to soothe their bodies and rejuvenate their senses. I did not have the opportunity to try it out but the services looked very inviting. Overall it was a short and pleasant stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel for couples who want to experience a piece of historical Malacca.
"Step back in luxurious history "
The Majestic in Melaka isnâ€™t the most centrally located, its quite a distance from the â€œheartbeatâ€ of Melaka with the Aâ€™Formosa, Stadthaus, the other Dutch colonial buildings and Independence Square about 10 minutes by car. People tend to forget that when Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister arrived back from London with an agreement for an independent Malaya he landed at Melaka Airport and he declared independence at what is now Independence Square in front of the Stadthaus. The Majestic Hotel, in its original form, wasnâ€™t a hotel at all but began life as a typical (in terms of architecture and display of wealth) Chinese tycoonâ€™s Straits Settlement Mansion in 1929. By the 1960s it was converted into a 3 Star hotel called The Majestic declining into a backpacker budget hotel until it closed down in 2000. Thereâ€™s an abandoned 1950s Cinema across the road at the banks of the Melaka River. The Majestic faces the Kampung Herren on the opposite bank of the river. A setting that is steeped in history. YTL Hotels bought it over the â€œshellâ€ and restored this into the Majestic Hotel in 2008. This became Melakaâ€™s first luxury 5 star boutique hotel. The luxurious 54 suites and rooms are housed in a modern purpose built block behind the original Mansion. The staff, from front desk, F&B and the spa, are exceptional. The Mansion was gutted and transformed into the epicentre of the Majestic experience. The whole building and its decor brings you back to the height of Melakaâ€™s heyday. A small elegant bar to the right as you enter and a quaint and discrete reception to the left. The chequered black and white tiled floor highlights the rich Persian carpets that are strategically placed under every seating area. A nice touch is small glass bottles of biscuits, reminiscent of those at the local grocery shops of the 1950s, at the many side tables scattered throughout the building. Thereâ€™s a library, much in the colonial fashion, which is nice place for fusion English style cream tea with fresh scones and mini spring rolls. Upstairs is the equally elegant dining room. The cascade breakfast is an experience in itself! Nearby - literally around the corner and walkable - there is (non halal) chicken rice with famous chicken rice balls and pork bone soup. The renown Bibek Neo is about 15 minutes away (by car) and serves authentic Peranakan delicacies. The addition of the world class Village Spa really boosts your stay and your senses. The massages and wellness programmes are reasonably priced with masseurs from and trained in Bali. A perfect place to unwind after exploring a hectic (and usually crowded) Jonker Street or shopping in Dataran Mall (a shopping centre built underneath Independence Square). The Majestic Hotel is an ideal weekend break from Kuala Lumpur but not necessarily as a base for a Melaka trip but as a trip in itself that brings you back in time. Iâ€™ve done weekends away at the Majestic and left the hotel just for lunch and dinner while spending the rest of my time in the spa, reading in the library, lounging by the swimming pool or a hardy workout in the small but well equipped gym. A great place to pamper yourself and detach from the world around you.
"The Majestic Hotel, Malacca"
Excellent hotel. Quaint facade restored to it's original beauty. We had a cosy room with river view. Service staff very attentive and helpful. Our most memorable time was a cooking lesson from the restaurant's Celebrity Chef Melba. She generously shared with us the secret of making a delicious sambal sauce.
"Fantastic stay with a brilliant cooking class"
We stayed at the Majestic for 3 nights and had a great time. The building is beautiful and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff were all friendly and were very helpful. The highlight of our trip was the brilliant cooking class conducted by Chef Melba and Chef JR. Both were really passionate about Kristang cuisine and the cultural and heritage that stems from it. The class was hugely enjoyable and we learned a stule of cooking that isn't available in London. We took the opportunity to buy Chef Melba's cook book so we could take the experience home to the UK. Thoroughly recommended and we can't wait to come back.
"Great boutique hotel"
Our stay here was a fantastic introduction to Malaysia. Our room had a good view and was beautifully appointed. The staff were excellent and so friendly and helpful. The welcome tea in your room is a lovely touch. It was my birthday and we had not mentioned this but still there were ribbons around my door and a special birthday pillow. We ate in the restaurant that night, were greeted by Melba the celebrity chef and treated to a cake. The pool is tiny but most welcome. The hotel walking tour was great - not only is it free but we were the only ones on it so we effectively had a private guide. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend if small heritage hotels are your preference.
