Tucked on the fringe of Melaka’s famed Portuguese Settlement, along Jalan Ujong Pasir where many popular food spots are located, is The Settlement Hotel.
Seeing the hotel now, one wouldn’t realise that it was once a government building back in the 1960s. This fresh look is the result of two years of restoration work.
It has successfully captured and preserved Melaka’s illustrious history, weaving guests through an evolution of cultures and hospitality.
I recently had the opportunity to be hosted at The Settlement Hotel for two nights. I can honestly say that I have no complaints at all – yes, fussy me was totally satisfied with my stay at this intimate boutique hotel.
The Settlement Hotel boasts a five-storey residence block with 45 rooms. Additionally, there are three luxurious villas to cater to couples who wish to spend a more intimate vacation in Melaka.
Although The Settlement Hotel does not have a sprawling compound, it does not lack green spaces as you can see from my photos. Also, a lavish traditional spa facility with three therapy rooms are housed in a Malay-style villa, facing a dip pool.
In the evening, the hotel’s Rooftop Garden is the best hangout spot. Obviously, Melaka’s skyline is nothing compared to a city like Kuala Lumpur, but it is a wondrous feeling to be sitting “on top of the world” with the wind blowing into our hair, as we chat over a drink.
Guests would not ask for more, with these amenities and the warm hospitality offered by the staff. For more information, check out the official website HERE or make a reservation via contact details below.
