Malacca, West Coast, Malaysia
The Majestic Malacca
  • Step out the front door and get lost in Malacca’s enigmatic streets, where intoxicating scents of the distinctive Malacca cuisine waft in the breeze and the very air is teeming with history.

  • Time stands still as you peruse historical tomes in the cosy leather armchairs of Library, perfect for hiding away and discovering the city’s colourful past or relaxing with a cup of local tea.

  • Are you a gin connoisseur? Try your hand at inventing and channel your inner mixologist at The Majestic’s Gin Cart where imagination is the limit.

  • Recapture your energy at the Spa Village, where luxury treatments are based on Peranakan healing techniques to rejuvenate and relax.

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.
