Another boutique hotel will be up in Melaka by early 2009. Casa means House and Rio means river. Well.. Just wait for another Casa Del Mar! Or house near the sea.Located near the new CIQ complex and easily accessible from Jonker Street or Taman Kota Laksamana. From Banda Hilir you can see the project clearly if you stand at the river bank along Quay Side cafe or the Flor De La Mar Museum.
“Aptly dubbed Casa del Rio Melaka, which translates into “Malacca’s home by the river”, the RM85 million venture will take shape on 3.2 acres beside the city’s historic river and be part of the state’s RM320 million Malacca River beautification plan.
The project comprising a 56-room boutique hotel and 32 serviced apartments is expected to welcome guests by early November 2009.”
