The lodge has secured key-less doors and the room we stayed in has its private mini-kitchen with bar fridge, toilet and bath with hot water, cable TV, A/C and fan. The fixtures are new, the bed is comfortable and everything is spotless clean. There is a bbq and breakfast area at the backyard where condiments are available for free. Wi-fi is strong and consistently available.
Sipping a warm cup of tea at a balcony of the Tea County Hotel while overlooking the vast tea plantations of Munnar is my perfect morning. For 2 days, Tea County Hotel offers me more than the tranquility of its surrounding landscapes.
The Baba House along Jeeren Street is surely not the cheapest in Malacca but if you want to relive the Peranakan lifestyle, this is probably where the closest you can get.
