About The Shore Residences

A luxurious high rise in the heart of Melaka, the The Shore Residences offers four-star accommodations and an awe-inspiring view from the Sky Lounge on the 43rd floor.

The smoke-free, air-conditioned suites each open onto a balcony, many of which offer a fine view over the river. Standard amenities include a flat-screen cable television, free Wi-Fi, and a modern en suite bath with a rainfall showerhead.

The The Shore Residences caters to families with a colourful water park and swimming pools on the ninth floor, as well as an outdoor tennis court and nicely equipped fitness centre. Free covered parking is available on site.

Hungry travellers will find four restaurants, two cafes, and a bar on the property. The Baboon House, one of the city's most popular eateries, is a healthy 17-minute walk.

The Stadthuys, Jonker Street, and Porta de Santiago are within a mile of the hotel. The Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum is about 15 minutes away on foot.

Positive Reviews

Nice rooms with an even better view...

The guest rooms and apartments are generally described as nicely decorated, spacious, and fairly well maintained. All rooms offer balconies, and guests on higher floors have been delighted by sunsets and sparkling river views. Travellers also enjoy the fabulous views from the pool area and rooftop terrace.

Make a big splash...

Young families adore the water play area and swimming pools on the ninth floor. The fitness centre is also well equipped and travellers enjoy using it.

Quiet, yet convenient location...

Guests note the hotel is conveniently located for a river cruise, just a few steps from a stop. Healthy travellers also enjoy walking to Jonker Street, which takes about 15-20 minutes. The shopping centre and restaurants directly below the hotel are very convenient, too.

Negative Reviews

Very long waits for the lift...

Few travellers fail to mention the extremely slow elevators. There are too few of them for the 40+ floors, and waits of 15-30 minutes are common. During peak periods, travellers have waited over 30 minutes. Guests have also been irritated by long waits at the front desk.

Problematic parking...

Many drivers have been thoroughly confused by the parking system, noting the signage is poor and the directions provided by the staff on site are unclear. Travellers also find the building itself difficult to navigate, noting the complex includes four towers and there are no maps on display.

Do not rely on the Wi-Fi..

Two of the building's four towers are fitted with three-bedroom apartments which, to the great irritation of guests, do not offer Wi-Fi. Free Wi-Fi is available in the suites, but travellers have not found it particularly speedy or reliable.
