Novotel Melaka @ Jalan Melaka Raya 2, Melaka

The smell of a new car is refreshing (at least to me :P). But the smell of a new hotel is alluring and this statement refer to the hotel I stayed during my recently Melaka trip, Novotel Melaka. Opened on late last year, Novotel Melaka is completely new from the lobby’s sofas to the hotel’s bedroom. Novotel Melaka is a 4-star hotel under the AccorHotels Group, strategically located in heart of Melaka city centre. Major attractions and shops are just a short stroll away from the hotel, this offers the opportunity to enjoy the rich historical and cultural background of the UNESCO world heritage city.

The kids can have some fun time at the dedicated kid’s corner located at the lobby level. Kid’s/family friendly hotel feature like this always an important consideration for me when choosing hotel.

We checked into our Executive Room located at 15th floor after the breeze check in. Tastefully decorated in chic and contemporary theme, our room is good sized equipped with a king sized bed. The bed is plush and comfortable which comes with 2 sets of pillows of various texture. The room is fully carpeted too which is a plus point for me as I hate walking on the freezing tiled or wooden flooring.

The day bed beside the window definitely an ideal spot for day dreaming or enjoy the street view of Melaka city.

The swimming pool area is huge, divided into an adult pool, kid’s wading pool and a mini playground. Dipping in the cooling pool definitely the biggest enjoyment under the recent scorching weather! There are many deckchairs provided at the pool side too, best for people like me who to just laze there and enjoy precious leisure moments with the family.
