spana-606-6">Hotel at a glance
With a view of the Melaka River, this boutique spana-606-6">Hotel props itself up amongst a veritable bastion of archival efforts, including historical sites, shopping dens, and greenery filled parks. Within an exterior awash in velvety carmine, rooms bearing silky fabrics and wooden floors provide respite to spent folks trickling in after a day of sight-seeing. More outgoing individuals may head out for a taste of the city’s effervescent night life, as quieter souls thumb through tomes at the library, or catch up on heartfelt soaps at the TV lounge.
When tummy rumblings jolt one out of slumber, the Bamboo Hut Bistro’s medley of Italian and local meals may serve to appease. A resident singer pulls diners into an ocean of melodies, punctuated with the burbling of a koi pond, and the occasional shouts of glee (or disappointment) when live footie matches are projected on a large screen.
Having been installed in the pulsating nucleus of Melaka, those with a penchant for culture traverse through the grounds of St. Paul’s Church, A Famosa (Porta de Santiago), Jonker Walk, Chinatown, and Little India, all located within walking distance from this temporary abode.
Melaka, Malaysia: 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 Melaka. 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 Melaka in the more dynamic sections of the ancient Malay annals.
