The rich cultural background of Malacca and her unique blend of Peranakan, Portuguese and Dutch heritage are reflected in the hotel’s décor, while also peppered with a notable Western influence. Home to six uniquely designed caravans, they are named after 60s and 70s icons who defined these decades. Be transported back in time—right in the middle of a caravan park—and experience what it’s like to stay in a mobile home, complete with all the basic amenities without the inconvenience of maintenance (we’ll take care of that). Guests who prefer more conventional accommodation can choose from 20 floral-themed rooms.
Dive into our pool for a relaxing after-meal dip, which overlooks the lush, floral garden of the nearby Malacca Sultanate Palace. With the pool’s crystal clear waters, soothing music, dedicated WiFi access and pool floats for our less buoyant guests, even the most fatigued of travellers can lounge around comfortably and unwind after an exhausting day out. Watch out though—our resident sharks come out to play after 10pm, so please avoid the waters then!
This is the nexus of the Rucksack Caratel where all the social activities and general fun stuff takes place: score a hat-trick at our foosball table, take a leisurely ride on our rustic swings, impress other folks with your mad basketball skills, work up a sweat on our stationary bikes, or sink into our cushy seats and mingle with other like-minded travellers.
Whether you like the sound of your own voice, just want to play live music or organise an impromptu stand-up comedy event, the Sound Stage can accommodate it all with a full console system, four microphones and two standing speakers. We even organise live events on occasions, so keep your eyes peeled on this space!
We are open 24 hours a day and check-in is around the clock. There will always be someone on site who would gladly share the best kept secrets on the latest happenings in town.
Carpark lots are limited in the vicinity of the hotel, however there are public parking lots available nearby and carpark coupons can be purchased at reception.
Daily housekeeping and a simple breakfast is provided.
All bedrooms are non-smoking rooms. There are designated outdoor smoking areas.
