If you wish to enjoy the art of living in the east, with Malayan/old Malacca charm this is the place. It is simple yet oozing with characters. In the Peranakan/straits Chinese culture, you see the blend of the Malay and the Chinese way of living in the tropics.
The place has been immaculately preserved and enhanced. We stayed in the junior suite which I must say difficult for me to leave.
For breakfast it besides the normal fares it was pleasant surprise to see Adam laksa and fried banana fritters being served. Very Malaysian.
I spent time just immersed in the ambience. Forget about the tourist attractions.
The spa is another treasure. Although the massage was average by my standard(which is very high) the setting and ambience make you want to make it a home.
I will come back.
