Family Staycation at The Straits Hotel & Suites Review


I'm writing a hotel review for the first time! hehe. First thing first, thanks so much TSHS for the invitation for me and my family. <3

So my family and I (6pax) had a staycation here in The Straits Hotel & Suites which is located in the heart of Bandar Melaka last month. 

visit their website as below for more info about this hotel ;)

This hotel is very nearby almost everything you would ever want to find in Melaka like shopping malls, historical sites, famous food spot (for example: Ee ji ban chicken rice ball!) and even all other entertainment/relaxing places like massages parlour, karaoke place etc. Literally at the heart of Bandar Melaka! 

Location Rating by me:
very strategic! especially to tourists. I'm sure you can easily find the places in you itinerary hehe.

We were given a Family Room which is actually consist of 2 different rooms; The Straits Suites and Deluxe Twin Room connected. I like the fact that they're connnected, perfect for family!

What's in the room?

- with a separate living area
- spacious bathroom with bathtub and standing rain shower
- sofa set

- kitchen top

the connection between the two rooms

Deluxe Twin Room 
Twin single Bed
- ensuite bathroom with standing rain showers
- day chair
- fridge
- tea & coffee making facilities
- writing table
- kitchen top

Room Cleanliness Rate by me:
very clean!

Room Facilities Rate by me:
I minus the mark at the induction cooking  at the kitchen counter. It's available there but we can't use it. They might as well need not to put there haha. Some staffs said it's a dummy, but, we found that it can actually work?? I don't know.. So just nevermind then.. ^_^"

I really recommend that you get rooms at a higher floor for better view!

Floor 16

Room wifi rating by me:
every rooms has its very own modem therefore it's very fasttttt!! who doesn't love fast connection right. +1 mark hehe

My family and I stayed, rest in the room most of the time (a staycation right) so overall we're satisfied with the rooms and enjoyed our stay - very cosy, comfortable and relaxing. :)

The Straits Hotel & Suites (TSHS) facilities that my family and I get to try:-

1) Rooftop Infinity swimming pool

Of course we wouldn't want to miss to come up to the rooftop and enjoy the swimming pool! It's very beautiful up there where you can also get to see beautiful view of Selat Melaka! I think this place would be perfect to organize occasion or event at night because next to it is a restaurant called Pizzaria Restaurant and Bar.

Rating by me:
Unfortunately I think the swimming pool not big enough to accomodate a lot of people. Also, due to swimming pool is usually booked for occasions at night, we have to go in the afternoon and it is especially hot at midday! >_<

Pizzaria Restaurant and Bar 

2) Amalaka Restaurant

Buffet breakfast

Variety of food rating by me:
There are plenty of choices for you! 

Food taste rating by me:
So-so taste huhu

Space rating by me:
I think this restaurant is quite small. especially the indoor space. somemore the table is very small, can only fit 2 person. it's not family-friendly. outside is better but it's not the most cosy space huhu.

Cleanliness of the restaurant rating by me:

FYI, for  room, only 2 persons are entitled for the buffet breakfast, therefore, you'll to buy if you guys come in more than 2 pax. Price for adults: RM32, Children: RM16

Other facilities here (didn't get to try them unfortunately but they look good! hehe) 

1) Sauna

2) Gym

So here's my overall rating:

I recommend this place. It's not bad, I mean not bad at all! It's worth it.

Please visit TSHS website for more info and for booking!

That is all from me today.
Thanks for reading!
