Malaysia's culinary is a mixture of many cuisines such as Malay, Chinese, Indian, Thai and even Arabian. My wife and I are ex –restaurateurs and we are experts in all Malaysian and Middle Eastern Cooking, and at home, we always prepare our cooking in traditional way using fresh herbs and spices. Our meals are truly healthy diet, and our cooking is done with less oil and no saturated fats, and we serve many vegetable based dishes to our family and to our dear guests. In our cooking, we use lentils, variety of legumes and a lot of fresh green vegetables. Our salad dishes are exotic and fresh, and we serve new and different ones for every meal. In addition, our major dishes of Malaya and Arabian food are in chicken and meat and we have also many good dishes based of seafood and fish. Some of our past guests were vegetarians but surprised them when we were able to put on the table a minimum of four-course meal all based and cooked in vegetables. Shall any of our guests want to learn pure vegetarian cooking? No problem, just ask how many different kinds of dishes you as a guest we want to learn from us. We can assure you 100 percent satisfaction when you come into our kitchen whether you are vegetarian or not. Our cooking class is exciting and we have custom designed most of our dishes, and many of our in-house specialties not even available in Melaka, that can either be purely Malaysian or combination with Arabian recipes. The cooking class sessions are always in the evenings for dinner and we are happy to teach our guests at least 4-course meal in every session for maximum of six people.

Our breakfast is like 3-star-hotel breakfast which is a combination of Malaysian, Arabian and Western food. Usually our guests do not need to have a lunch after they had such big breakfast.

We have our own transport and our son who is good tour guide can show the guests all interesting places including Melaka historic sights. Guests who want to use public transport can reach historic sights by bus.

We can arrange for our guests to attend Malaya Wedding Ceremony. We did arrange for some of our guests in the past; this service needs prearrangement and the weddings are usually held on Saturdays.

At our home, we treat our guests like family members and we you will feel at home. We like to host families with children, singles, couples, senior folks and even students. Our guests can share us the living room, watch settle-lite TV with us, and can even play chessboard with us.

Prices are per person per night.

All express buses coming to Melaka do pass near my home, and almost all my guests arrive by express bus. If you are coming by bus please ask the driver to stop for you as soon as you see Melaka Airport Control tower at your right hand side. After you get off the bus you can see Petronas Gas Station and from there my home is only 300 meters away.

Located Near

My home is located within Melaka city and we are between newly built Melaka airport and the downtown. The Melaka bus terminal is about 10 minutes drive from home, and the downtown is only 15 minutes drive.
