|this was a surprise. We parked our car in the parking lot in the basement and were pleasantly surprised to have our car window screen all cleaned with a little card tucked at the wiper.|
When we checked in we were also given a RM20 voucher to use in the gift shop. I used that to buy hubby a nice shirt.
On top of all the above, they have a lot of other amenities I did not get the opportunity to use as there just wasn't enough time. There was the Satkara Spa, and the gym.
And if you visit the Hard Rock Melaka nearby , you can get a 10% discount off your bill as well!!!!
So if you are in Melaka, have some extra dosh and in the need for some pampering and so on, you really have to come here. It will be worth your while.
