Hotel Overview


By the river in Malacca, which lies on the South Western coast of Peninsula Malaysia.

Rooms at The Majestic Malacca

With 37 rooms at The Majestic Malacca, it retains a grand but intimate feel. Each each of the rooms is inspired by its colonial past, with wooden shutters, teak four-poster beds, and Malaysian silks, whilst some have the added charm of facing the river.

Food and facilities

You can have your first taste of Malaysia’s famous Nyonya cuisine in The Majestic’s genteel dining room, and having been served by the white-jacketed waiters you can head out to try yet more street-food delicacies. There’s also a small spa where you can have treatments inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, and a pool to cool off after a day of exploring.

Activities at The Majestic Malacca

Once a major-trading hub that linked India with China, Malacca is a rich tapestry of Chinese, Malay, Arab, as well as Dutch-colonial influences. One of the nicest ways to explore is on a relaxing river cruise, and after this you can wander Jonker Street for centuries-old antiques; pass pink coloured Dutch colonial buildings, and pop in to one of the artisan shoe-shops to see them make exquisite silk shoes.
