Casa del Rio Melaka enjoys a prominent position on the Melaka River, characteristic of its 5-star status. Infused with Portuguese, Mediterranean, and Asian inspirations, the comfortable accommodations of Casa del Rio Melaka reflect the vibrant and varied history of Melaka.
The region surrounding Casa del Rio Melaka is home to Peranaka culture, composed of Chinese immigrants who settled along the straits in the Malay archipelago between the 15th and 17th centuries. Theirs is a distinct blending of Chinese and Malay, and this fusion is celebrated across the hotel with a nod to colonial history. Each room is finished with timber flooring, dark wood colonial-inspired furnishings, and warm Mediterranean hues of terra cotta, pomegranate, and gold. Marble-lined bathrooms feature a separate glass shower and guests can observe the city activity from their own private balcony. Deluxe Lago rooms look down upon the central courtyard and swimming pool, and all other rooms and suites have views of the Melaka River below.
River-front dining options can be found on the ground-floor promenade which spans the entire length of the hotel. Breakfast buffets and a multi-course lunch menu that changes daily are the hallmarks of The River Grill. Bar Rio is an eclectic mix of boutique cocktails, beers on tap, afternoon tea, and casual lunches. In the evenings, the River Cafe transforms from a destination for fresh juices, smoothies, and pizzas, to a sushi hotspot with an impressive array of sake, wines, and soju to complement the tasty menu.
A stone’s throw from lively Jonker Street and the UNESCO-protected historic Melaka city, Casa del Rio Melaka is a top choice for the discerning traveler. Guests can also embark on a cruise along the river from the hotel’s private jetty for a peek at the riverside architecture and a lesson on the significance of the Straits of Melacca as a trading route and settlement. After a day of exploring, the soothing treatments of the Satkara Spa will bring both mind and body back into alignment. A fully-equipped gym and infinity pool are located on the rooftop, yet another vantage from which to take in the sights of this culturally-rich destination.Request Information
