One of the largest hotels in the centre of Malacca Casa del Rio is located on Jalan Kota Laksamana, a 2 minute walk away from the popular Jonkers Walk and heritage attractions. Sitting on the banks of the river the dominantly Mediterranean architecture is heavily influenced by Arabic, Chinese and Dutch styles.
Every guest room at Casa del Rio is luxuriously decorated in the same Mediterranean style with a touch of Peranakan flair. The exquisite marble lined bathrooms feature a separate glass shower cubicle and a tub/bath big enough for two people. Sliding bathroom shutters close for privacy or open to a view of the bedroom, TV and beyond through the balcony doors.
Aiming to provide an “at Home” atmosphere, Casa del Rio is a sanctuary from the city’s bustle, with spaces for indulgent reflective solitude or stimulating interactive conversation depending on the choice of the traveller. A rooftop pool and bar offers escape from the city streets below on the busier weekends. The hotel also offers bicycle rental services for your riding pleasure around heritage and historical sites of Malacca.
An a la carte western breakfast is served in The River Grill, along with a buffet selection of local favourites. Whilst breakfast could be improved a little, the convenient location, sun-drenched swimming pool, comfortable guest rooms and excellent service keeps this hotel high up on our list of favourites for a visit to Malacca.
