Majestic Hotel Malacca Town
The historic seaside city of Malacca is steeped in a rich tapestry of multicultural influences reflected in its heritage architecture, diverse lifestyles and eclectic cuisine. Located on the banks of the river which in yesteryear teemed with Chinese junks and spice-laden vessels from all over the world, The Majestic Malacca provides a glimpse into the splendid saga of an extraordinary empire. Founded centuries ago by a Sumatran prince, Malacca grew to become a powerful sultanate and the centre of the lucrative spice trade, visited by Arab, Tamil and Chinese merchants and subjected to dominance by the Portuguese, Dutch and British in turn. Each left their mark, creating the unique and enduring allure of the city today. The Majestic Malacca 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. From the original porcelain flooring, teakwood fittings, intricate artwork and antiques, to the finely crafted Nyonya cuisine, every aspect echoes the history of the region, and offers a beguiling journey through this enchanting heritage. Immerse yourself in the essence of Malacca, wander the meandering 600 year old narrow pathways, explore the red-brick Dutch colonial buildings or search out genuine relics and antiques in the narrow old shophouses on Jonker Street. Rejuvenate with a bowl of refreshing Peranakan cendol in the dining room within the hotel or soothe tired muscles with a relaxing massage at the Spa Village Malacca.
