Eco-Friendly Resort Close to Nature
Escape to paradise at the four-star Philea Resort & spa, a Hotel featuring a unique rustic architecture employing the use of pine logs, which has won it accolades including the ‘Best Green Hotel MTA 2010/2011’ award and a place in the Malaysia Book of Records as the ‘first and largest pine log resort’ in the country. The resort adopts an eco-friendly approach by using up to 8,000 pieces of disused railway sleepers and reclaimed fixtures and material from shipwrecks in their décor, and exudes an atmosphere of serenity with cabins nestled amongst shady trees, a pool surrounded by man-made waterfalls, and a glimpse of undulating hills. Pamper yourself at the Tanjung Wellness spa, or charter a car, limousine, or tour service for trips to the city.
Melaka: What to see and do
Travel back in history to what was once the East’s more formidable city of influence and one of South-East Asia’s UNESCO Heritage Site that is Malacca. What began as a quiet fishing village quickly became the central trading ground for Asian and European merchants under the rule of its first sultan, Parameswara. Its heritage as an international port is deeply etched into the architecture, food, and people that make this state home. One of the artifacts left behind is Dutch Square. Coloured in deep dark maroon, what used to be an administrative building for the Dutch colonisers is now the main town square that graces many a greeting card and tourist photograph. Dutch Square is but the tip of the iceberg that is Melaka’s architectural heritage; there’s Fortaleza de Malaca, a Portuguese fort; Bastion House that once served as a British bank; and the Baba Nyonya Peranakan Museum housed in an actual Peranakan heritage home.
Jonker Street is another favourite and is host to the ever popular Jonker Walk Night Market during Fridays and Saturdays, though when bathed in the harsh light of the weekday is more known for its aged yet nostalgically picturesque pre-war shop houses. Get a mouthful of history with samples of local cuisine, the front-runner being Baba-Nyonya food. Dishes that were once made in the confines of grandmothers’ kitchens have now become eponymous with the city’s fusion flair, along with Portuguese-Eurasian cuisine which one may find at the Portuguese Settlement, home to the descendants of former Portuguese colonisers.
Transporting you a century back with her colonial legacy which was influenced by the Portuguese, Dutch, and British, a port-city tour around the surviving building remnants brings you up close to the enduring reminder of the power wrests which keeps Malacca in the more dynamic sections of the ancient Malay annals.
