Average time to visit

Malaysia’s west coast boasts a warm tropical climate, with high temperatures and humidity throughout the year. The driest months are from December to March, particularly good times to enjoy the islands of Penang, Langkawi or Pangkor when the sun is shining and there is only occasionally rainfall. The rains arrive in April and last until October, with thunderstorms typically occurring in the afternoon. However, these are usually brief and can offer a welcome relief from the humidity during the hotter months.

To start planning your holiday to The Majestic Malacca


Overlooking the Malacca River in the heart of the old quarter, The Majestic Malacca is a charming 1920s colonial mansion that reflects the city’s rich tapestry of multi culture, and a great option for exploring this fascinating UNESCO World Heritage city.

Echoing Malacca’s status as a historic trading entrepôt, The Majestic Malacca is a mixture of Eastern and Western cultures, every aspect of the property a fusion of multi-cultural elements and imprints from around the world. Original porcelain flooring, intricate artwork, antiques, teakwood fittings and beautiful silks create a beguiling atmosphere, and while the original mansion remains the heart of the hotel, a new building has been created, mirroring the original architecture, to house the classic hotel's 54 rooms and suites. Sumptuously appointed, these are spacious and come with floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden flooring and a silk-upholstered chaise-longue where you can gaze out across the river and imagine spice-laden Chinese junks sailing past. Behind screen doors, a luxurious marble bathroom has a large clawfoot bathtub for a relaxing soak.

Dining is superb, and at The Mansion with its original windows overlooking the river, you can take a gourmet culinary journey through Malaccan cuisine, feasting on Portuguese, Dutch and English dishes as well as the distinctive and aromatic Nyonya dishes that fuse Malay and Chinese influences. At the end of the day a sundowner at the colonial bar is a must.

When not soaking up the fascinating culture, you can relax in The Majestic Malacca’s charming library, lounge by the beautiful outdoor swimming pool or treat yourself to a healing spa treatment based on the Peranakan philosophy inspired by traditional Chinese medicine.
