The Majestic Malacca
Ranked #4 of 169 Hotels in Melaka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The morning we The Majestic left was thundery with heavy rain and still, had we been able, we would have loved to have stayed longer.

The Majestic is very grand. Driving along the typically 'interesting' Malacca road, leaves you unprepared for arriving at The Majestic and straight away you know you have made the right choice.

The welcome was wonderful indeed after a long drive down from the Cameron Highlands. Friendly smiles, cold towels and a welcome drink, escorted to comfy seats while everything was taken care of effortlessly. The welcome Tea, brought to the room is wonderful. All staff are very helpful and whilst this is a sign of professional training, it also feels natural and not at all effected.

We loved our room. The ensuite is wonderfully designed with floor to ceiling sliding shuttered doors on two sides. Closing them for privacy it looks great, leaving them open opens up the space and shows off the lovely roll top bath. The chaise lounge in front of the large windows was the place to lay, sip whisky and plan the next adventure.

Do not miss the (complimentary) hotel guided tour of Melacca. 5pm and 10am (I think) and very worthwhile particularly for the Malacca newbie.

The hotel sits very close to the canal that runs down to toward China town and the bustling centre of Malacca. It is a very pleasant walk and meanders casually down to many of the attractions in the town centre. There is also the option of catching a boat down the river and this too is just a short level walk from The Majestic.

A hotel is always more than the sum of great rooms or good food or friendly service. Can it create that feeling. The Majestic - yes yes yes.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 7th floor. This was great as it afforded wonderful views, especially at night...

Stayed 3 nights. Meals at the 2nd level restaurant was very delicious. They are especially good with their sambal. Breakfast spread didn't change during my stay which might be dull for long stays. I didn't think the Majestic Omelette was great. Do try their Murtabak.

Generally what impressed me was the level of professionalism of the service staff and being able to stay in such a nostalgically decorated hotel.

I would highly recommend this hotel to Singaporeans.

Everything about this hotel was absolutely delightful, from the initial greeting with a cool face towel and a cup of tea, to the wonderful spa treatment. The service was great and the hotel staff gracious. This is one of the best hotel experiences I have had in all my years of travel.

The hotel has a great spa with a wonderful choice of treatments but the high point of our visit was the tour with Chou. She was a great guide. She really enjoyed showing us around malacca and shared her knowledge of the city and its' history.

The friendliest hotel we have ever stayed at. Service plus and always with a warm sincere smile. Everytime we came back we had such a warm welcome and it felt like coming home. The Majestic has lots of old world charm. The restaurant has a great feel to it. The location is excellent - you can enjoy the walk along the river to Jonker Street. Miss Chew who offers a daily walking tour is wonderful and the tour highly recommended. Kai was a great bartender and introduced us to a few new and delicious cocktails. The bathroom can become part of the main room in your rooms which was very cool. We loved our stay at the Majestic and it made the wonderful gem that is Melaka even more special.

We spent the weekend in Malacca and the Majestic hotel was the best part of the trip. The room was very well appointed. The bed was quite comfortable. The toilet was very pretty with the retro bath tub and the open set up.

The breakfast was super. I ordered the Majestic omelette which was a meal itself. The fruits were fresh and sweet.

It is near enough to walk to the main sights. There were a couple of good restaurant nearby which locals go to like the Lee Crab restaurant just behind the parking.

The one improvement is the noise coming from filling the bath tub from the room and upper floor. Other than this, it was a great relaxing weekend.
