Exotic Casa Del Rio Melaka, The Latest Boutique Haven By HPL

casa del rio melaka hotel review
Hola! Mucho gusto, join me as I embarked on a historical journey in Malacca with a quintessential Spanish romance at Casa del Rio.

The Grande Dame is the newest addition to The Boutique Collection by HPL Hotels & Resorts. Casa del Rio, which is Spanish for ‘home by the river’, is a mansion of opulence, sitting majestically on the riverbank, only a 2-min walk from the popular Jonkers Walk & the heritage attractions of Melaka.

Thanks to Casa del Rio, I got to extend another two nites stay in Malacca with my friend after my Date With Bloggers At Melaka 2012 event.

I was totally smitten by the gorgeous Spanish Lady from the moment I stepped into the lobby. Icy Lime Sorbet with my name “inscribed” on a leaf & cold towels awaits us as we were ushered to check in at their Lago side Cabanas.

Rooms

The splendid view had us spellbound as we looked out from our room’s balcony. All the rooms have beautifully-lined Bougainvilleas balconies which overlook the courtyard ‘Lago’ or the Melaka River.

For your gastronomic pleasures, Casa del Rio offers simple cooking using the freshest ingredients. Their extensive riverside dining hails quite an array of cuisines at their Bar Rio, River Café & River Grill. Check out my reviews at::

Voted No. 1 in Top 10 Hotels for Families - Malaysia
by TripAdvisor in its 2012 Travellers’ Choice® awards

The hotel’s facilities & service are stylishly 5-star, without compromising the comfort & pleasures of their guests. Casa del Rio is certainly unique as it’s the only hotel property in Malacca that’s located on the bank of the stately Melaka River. Your home by the river becomes a carnival seemingly afloat on a river of lights when night falls.
With its alluring mix of charm, Casa del Rio is definitely your preferred choice of hotel! Gracias, Casa del Rio Melaka! Rating: ★★★★★
