This Engish inspired guesthouse is located a bit further out of Malacca town at Paya Rumput. The cheery colourful exteriors and the cute triangle shape hut/inns one might wonder if you just stepped into Dr.Seuss’s world. It’s built within a very clean and flat landscape away from the hustle and bustle of the city. They accommodate up to six guests and they’ve got a big swimming pool for adults and kids, so it’s great for a family retreat.

“A mix of functionality, casual style, modern comfort and superb value.” – With clean lines and minimalistic design, this contemporary renaissance inspired boutique hotel has a sky view shower ceiling so when you look up its a comforting view of the blue sky or a starry night (depending on the weather). Bello & Bella certainly has its own charm although it’s a bit further out from the city area (8km), you’ll still have easy access to Cheras Mall and IKEA Cheras.
