The "Oriental Residence" is a charming "Chinese Home Conception" set in an elegantly restored pre-war building, overlooking Melaka River. Situated at the core of the "UNESCO World Heritage Zone" on the bustling narrow streets of Old Chinatown, with tourist attractions, art galleries, antique shops, craftsmen's and traders at its doorstep, it allows its guest to be close to the community yet manages to maintain and atmosphere of "Peace and Tranquility".

Each guest will be treated with the kind of attention that is usually reserved for family, befitting our adage "Quintessence of Melaka Hospitality". When our guests arrive we want them to leave their troubles at the door and step and into a world of pampered luxury, attention to detail will be the hallmark in this magical place which is ready to embrace.

Its rooms are adorned with elegant furniture with its own oriental theme. The exquisite lounge with a soothing atmosphere invites guest to mingle or unwind during their leisure time. Meals can be taken to ones room or enjoyed by the garden. For those ready to explore the vicinity, be prepared to marvel at the old world charm that is uniquely Melaka city. The Oriental Residence is the perfect setting for those looking to get away from the ordinary in an exclusive environment in this captivating city.
