BY 2016, MELAKA WILL HAVE IBIS MELAKA HOTEL TO CATER TO OVERSEAS VISITORS

World renown hotelier, Ibis will be constructing their own IBIS MELAKA HOTEL. The hotel will be located at the former Savoy cinema just besides Melaka infamous 9 Storey flats at Jalan Bendahara.
This 6 storeys hotel will cost around MYR 200 million in investment by the Ibis Group of companies with local partners. Designed with a classical look, it is expected to open for business by 2016. More and more international renown hotels have started to invest in Melaka as they see the historical and commercial aspects in Melaka after Melaka was added into UNICEF World Heritage City in 2008. Plaza Ramada Hotel is here together with Swiss Garden Hotel, Holiday Inn and other international boutique hotels.

The Melaka River bank will spur future opening of riverside restaurants. Hopefully, in another 5 years time, Melaka Riverwalk will be a hub of activities whereby it will be the walk that links the historical part of Melaka with the residential hub of hotels being located in the upstream of Melaka River.
