Following the announcement by Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri this week, Genting Highlands, Melaka and Tioman Island may soon reopen to visitors as part of Malaysia's domestic travel bubble this October 1, 2021. The three destinations will potentially join Langkawi, which was announced as a pilot project for the travel bubble just over a week ago.
As health and tourism authorities deliberate on the health SOPs involved in this move, we've bookmarked eight dreamy staycation spots for fully vaccinated individuals longing for a balmy getaway.
1. The Majestic Malacca
For those with a soft spot for restored Straits Settlement architecture, a staycation at The Majestic Malacca should be at the top of your travel list. Step back in time to the 1920s within the interiors of this beautifully restored mansion as you unwind by the pool or over mouthwatering Kristang cuisine. Planning a two-night stay at The Majestic Malacca? Opt for the hotel's One for One package, which offers a complimentary night of stay with every paid night, as well as daily breakfast for two.
