What you'll do

Ever dreamt of discovering Melaka in a different and unique way? Immerse yourself in Melaka's rich culture and history by gaining access to a special, private place that most Melakans do not know about!

Let me plunge you into a time capsule of Peranakan opulence and history! We will be based in a private Peranakan home and you will also have the opportunity to sample some home-made Peranakan kuihs (cakes)!

Much of the building's beautiful original features have been restored to their former glory after seven years of refurbishment (completed in 2016). If you wish to truly experience Melaka's illustrious past and are looking for a unique experience and want to do the most out of your time in this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage city then look no further: this is it!

Hello! My name is Elvina and I'm Peranakan--my family runs a few Peranakan properties in Melaka and the place that holds closest and dearest to our hearts is 5 Heeren, a Peranakan museum hotel situated in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site that my mum took seven years to restore & refurbish (2010-2016). We are passionate about all things Peranakan and we'd love to share parts of our culture & heritage with you!

We spent a great time in Elvina’s mother’s beautiful place. We embraced her culture. We had the opportunity to taste wonderful local food especially desserts. Our host was very fluent in English and has offered us great explanations. We will keep great memories of this visit.
