Golf Holidays to Malacca
Just and hour and a half from Kuala Lumpur airport and 2 hours from Kuala Lumpur city centre is the picturesque colonial port of Melaka. The influence of the British, Dutch and Portuguese traders and military who have controlled this vital port have left a distinct legacy easily visible as you walk or take a trishaw ride around the town centre.

Majestic MalaccaMORE INFO
Located on the banks of the river which in yesteryear teemed with Chinese junks and spice-laden vessels from all over the world, The Majestic Malacca provides a glimpse into the splendid saga of an extraordinary empire.
Founded centuries ago by a Sumatran prince, Malacca grew to become a powerful sultanate and the centre of the lucrative spice trade, visited by Arab, Tamil and Chinese merchants and subjected to dominance by the Portuguese, Dutch and British in turn. Each left their mark, creating the unique and enduring allure of the city today.
The Majestic Malacca is an integral part of Malacca's colourful history. The original serene mansion, dating back to the 1920's, remains at the heart of the hotel, whilst a new building has been created, mirroring the original architecture, to house 54 spacious rooms and suites.
The design integrates old with new, modern with historic, ensuring that the total experience is one that is authentic, honouring the past while bringing every modern convenience to bear. From the original porcelain flooring, teakwood fittings, intricate artwork and antiques, to the finely crafted Nyonya cuisine, every aspect echoes the history of the region, and offers a beguiling journey through this enchanting heritage.
Located in the state of Pahang, approximately 200 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur, Cameron Highlands is a beautiful holiday destination and the only place where you can find tea plantations and strawberries in Malaysia. At about 1,500 metres above sea level, it is the highest area on the mainland and enjoys a cool climate and fresh air, with temperatures ranging between 15° and 25° Celsius.
Pangkor Laut ResortMORE INFO
Pangkor Laut is a privately owned island located three miles off the West Coast of Malaysia in the Straits of Malacca. This piece of paradise has been 2 million years in the making, and here you will find one of the world’s premier resorts nestling in the shade of forest giants as old as the land.
You will find no other resorts – just secluded bays curled around pristine beaches, evening skies woven with colour, and a deep sense of serenity reserved exclusively for our guests. A combination of luxury, natural beauty and age-old wilderness woven together to produce an environment where peace and magically memorable moments are the currency.
Of the island's 300 acres, only a fraction has been developed to house the Resort and its eight Estates. Wooden buildings blend seamlessly into the forest as if nature had been the architect dictating how walls curve around foliage, and roofs open up to allow trees to continue on their journey to the sky.
Nature is respected here, almost revered, and it rewards visitors in ways that simply need to be experienced.

Pangkor Laut Resort is located on the privately owned island of Pangkor Laut 1.6 km off the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is a truly tropical isle with rocky outcrops and white sandy beaches fringed by a beautiful rain forest which thrives in the tropical climate.
The rich vein of history is focussed around Dutch Square where the Stadhuys(town hall), now a museum, and St Paul’s Church on St Paul’s Hill forms a fascinating insight into old Melaka. The renowned Porta de Santiago, St Johns Fort and Jonkers Street, famous throughout the Orient for its antique shops, are an ideal place for browsing and shopping. We recommend spending 2 nights in Melaka which will allow time to enjoy the sites as well as the fantastic golf courses which are all near to the city. The town is an hour and a half from the airport and two hours from Kuala Lumpur city centre.
