Do you still remember the prize we won from Shirley's Luxury Haven blog last year? It was a 2D1N stay plus breakfast for two at Casa Del Rio, Melaka.
Haven't got the chance to utilised the voucher last year. It was going to expire this month end. Fortunately, the reservation process was very easy and pleasant thanks to Miss Suraya of Casa Del Rio, Melaka.
That was the reason we went to Malacca.
Gosh! there are so many wonderful review about this hotel and Mamarazzi can say that after staying here, the reviews are all true. It was super-duper nice, clean and friendly. No wonder someones handphone dropped into the toilet here also don't feel "geli" to pick it up again.
When we arrived, we were rather surprised to find there is no "big" check-in counters. Just two modest desks.
At the mention of the word "check-in", the lady at the desk immediately led us to the Cabana for our Welcome drinks. We were very surprised as in other hotel, the welcome drinks would only be served after they took our particulars.
I thought it's the swimming pool but it's not. Gosh...so cooling.
Wow.....So pretty. "Welcome Home, Chung Kathy" the sign says.
While enjoyed our refreshing sorbet, the Lady took Papa and Mamarazzi's particulars to process. Just as we finished our drink, she came back and lead us to our room.
During the "journey", she took the time to show/informed us about the place to dine, the infinity swimming pool, bar, gym , SPA and stuffs like that.
Arriving our room, she showed us the things they have there.
Real thick mattress and super comfy.
Also good for a romantic candlelight dinner...
Work desk for those who needs one. Complete with WiFi and stuffs like that
Mamarazzi found little things like these makes the stay more comfortable and warm. It's like they want guests to know more about the history of the place and feel at home. At least, guests especially foreign ones would know more about Malaysian culture.
Also found a sort of diary liked book on the shelf where various staffs from the hotel wrote about their experience there and suggested a few places where the guests could visit in Malacca. They also encouraged Guests to pen down their experience in the book as a guide to other Guests. But Mamarazzi didn't write anything there.
Don't you just love the real thing instead of those that comes in sachets?
It impressed Mamarazzi much. Not only hotel is a place to spend the night but it also dispensing information and educate the new generation.
But what I like is the spacious Bathroom.
I had a wonderful time exploring.
Running in and out ...here and there.'
The toiletries. Lotion, shampoo and conditioner came in jars.
Even have bath Salt and Hand Made Cinnamon Soap.
You know what? They even have a yellow Rubber Duckie for me!
There is a saying that goes like this "The way to a man heart is through his tummy". But in this case, "The way to a mother's heart is through her children". The Rubber Duckie crunch the deal for Mamarazzi. Yup...she love this place.
Here Rubber duckie!!! Come "swim" with me.
Wow...it's like am having a BIG swimming pool in the room for myself.
