Peace and Tranquility at The Settlement Hotel, Melaka.
We chose this place for its location near to the Portuguese Settlement. Because I wanted to let my loved ones try some Portuguese dishes at in Portuguese Square. Sort of showing my son, his roots. This quaint little hotel is about 10 minutes from the Portuguese Square. When booked the room, I was anticipating some cheezy decorated BnB. But what we got impressed me.
The hotel was tastefully decorated with well kept grounds. Room was decorated with a Baba Nyonya Colonial theme. Right to the blue floral room coffee and tea ware. Everything was artistically placed. This gave the place a soft, tranquil feel. Which made you forget that you were in the heart of busy Melaka.
Room was clean and comfortable with a nice big bathtub. My kids loved the bathtub. The staff was also very friendly, everyone greeted us whenever they met us. You don’t get that much anymore in some large five star hotel. Even the common spaces are so welcoming. You can relax and enjoy the ambiance at any time of day. Furnishings are lovely and create a luxurious atmosphere.
Breakfast was adequate, not luxury but tasty. I like how its spread out around the little garden. Everyone there seem to have breakfast at a leisurely pace. That’s what being on holiday is all about.
In terms of food they have a small cafe but there’s a lot of restaurants just walking distance.
Only negative thing I could find about this place was the parking. You have to drive along a bumpy road to the back to the hotel. But it was ok.
Verdict :- Definitely recommend to everyone if you are in Melaka. We got to appreciate the tranquility of The Settlement. The hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of touristy areas. Great place to relax. Great value for money. I am planning to return somewhere in December when the whole Portuguese Settlement is decorated for Christmas.
