The Majestic Malacca

The Majestic Malacca

THE marble yard is stained with rain, but it has not fallen into ruin. Weeds have not seeded the roof nor cracked flowered tiles grandfather brought, shining in crates from China.… Someone has saved the old house…  

  • Shirley Geok-lin Lim, Monsoon History
  The Majestic Malacca is a lovingly restored boutique hotel. Thanks to the meticulous restoration, The Majestic Malacca still retains the look and feel of a private residence. The hotel’s unique architectural style mirrors Malacca’s multi-faceted community and its historic past. It draws on influences from the Portuguese, Dutch, British and the Peranakan cultures, and these elements have been carefully preserved and complemented with modern amenities, such as a glass-walled gymnasium and wireless broadband. The new block houses 54 guest rooms and YTL’s signature Spa Village using traditional Peranakan treatments. Guests can enjoy charming old-fashioned luxuries such as four-poster beds dressed in silks and smooth cottons and a marbled bathroom with a claw-footed porcelain tub and modern rain-showers.
