Casa del Rio
Your own private balcony over the Melaka River
88 Jalan Kota Laksamana T: (06) 289 6888
The newest addition to the landscape of the Melaka River is the five-star Casa del Rio.
While it looks bigger than its 66 rooms, the reason is that they're huge with plush king-sized beds, marble bathrooms and private balconies to soak up the river views. All the mod-cons are accounted for including a 42" TV, DVD player, iPod dock and free WiFi. Facilities include multiple swimming pools, a fitness centre, day spa, restaurants and its own jetty for the Melaka River Cruise -- just wave the boat down. Casa del Rio is good for a splurge, just remember to shop around online for the best rate.
