We stayed here for 3 nights based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. Lovely room with a funky bathroom. It was also wonderful to have a pool at one’s door step and be able to swim anytime. Nice location and easy to walk to restaurants and the central tourist area .I liked the concept of 4 independent cottages – small and quite. Despite the good infrastructure of @Neem, I was however a little confused as to what it actually was . This is billed on Trip Advisor in the Specialty lodging. Yet rooms were not serviced for the entire time we were there. I have never had this experience in a specialty lodge or B&B establishment. Food - I would say is average. As a vegetarian they had accommodated my requirements by buying in. On the last morning we were there we waited an hour for breakfast as the young man who had to purchase it overslept. We should simply have skipped that breakfast – as not only was it an hour late it was not at all tasty. I expect it was bought it haste at the nearest shop - to just get it done. Previous mornings had been good and available on time. Given the accommodation available in Melaka , I would explore alternative accommodation should I ever go again. This establishment, whilst it has the basic structure , needs more than it is currently offering.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Neem is a quaint collection of four rustic chalets that were once the workers’ living quarters of a Dutch Colonial coconut plantation belonging to one of the last Dutch Governors of Malacca. The chalets are collectively known as the Neem due to the magical and therapeutic Neem trees found on the common grounds of this homestead together with the humongous Ketapang trees, coconut trees, mango trees, frangipanis, ixoras and the odd kelor tree. ... more less
