What could we say more.. You would get a Royalty feel staying here.. Very cosy and serene.. Mr.Kamal the caretaker is the person who is always there in need. Centrally located and easy access to all places in Malacca.

My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend trip to Malacca during Chinese New Year and he had booked The Kahaani for a 2 night stay. As the former manor of the Ex-Governor of Malacca, they transformed the place into a hotel beautifully. With only 5 rooms, The Kahaani is the perfect place for couples and families to enjoy peace and... More

Quick trip to malacca this time for weekend getaway... The family didn't feel like any hustle and bustle of touristy malacca hence decided to sign up for the Kahaani experience. We had one of the suite on the upper floor, spacious, and they kept the room cooled for us, and by the time we arrive it was a fantastic refuge... More

The Kahaani is the former residents of the Governor and was turned into a 6 rooms luxe hotel in 2013. During the time we were there for three night (8-11 february 2015) we were there with just two other guests. It felt like we had this mansion just for our selfs. The Nafiri suite was our room during our stay.... More

This is not your standard hotel. In fact for us it wasn't even like a hotel at all. We found that we were the only guests during our stay from Tuesday to Thursday, and it was almost like being welcome guests in a mansion otherwise deserted except for the staff. When we arrived at the middle of the day we... More

The design of the pool was very unique.This is the place you should stay if regular hotel makes you feel boring. The mansion was very huge! Definitely my first choice when i'm visit... More

I was pleasantly surprised to realize the hotel was actually the previous Governor's residence and had already been converted to a hotel in the past year. Setting of the place was beautiful, and the room was very spacious and comfortable - there were no bookings as it was a weekday so it was like having a mansion to ourselves. Surroundings... More

I stayed here about 2 nights, and was greeted warmly by En Kamal (you were so gracious and kind). He gladly gave us a detailed tour of the property and finally led us to our room 'Nafiri'. The grandeur of the room took my breath away. Warm and welcoming scent of fresh linen and polished wood just seem to relax... More
