Selamat Datang Ke Liu Men
Melaka known as being one of Malaysia’s oldest cities, also known as “The Historic State” has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2008, is the next unique destination from Préférence Hotels.
A soothing and comfort escape from the big city, Melaka hides underneath a foundation of its vibrant and eclectic multiculturalism that dates back hundreds of years. Hints of its colonial past and mixing of cultures can be seen throughout, from the Cheng Hoon Teng temple, Malaysia’s oldest Taoist temple, to the Portuguese built A’famosa fort and the Dutch built Christ Church all providing not only glimpses into the past but pieces of the story of how Melaka came into being.
Once, within this narrow street west of Melaka river, stood six shop-houses where various families, each with different backgrounds resided in Jalan Tokong. Sometime before 1939, the families left their homes and their shop-houses were renovated and transformed into a mansion for a single family. Fast forward to now, the 21st century, this pre war structure experienced a rebirth, like a phoenix, it has risen once again from the ashes. Reborn as Liu Men.
Liu Men means “six doors”. The number Six, or (六, LIÙ), not just a literal translation, but it also holds a special meaning to the Chinese community. Symbolising a smooth journey and travel, and this is one of the reasons behind the name.
Located within a glance walk distance from one of main attraction; the Cheng Hoon Teng temple, Liu Men is a celebration of cultures where we find the perfect harmony of East and West. Throughout the interior of Liu Men, the 1930s colonial art deco influences can be seen with its geometric shapes, that have not only been introduced, but embraced. These bold shapes are added with a distinctly Eastern twist of the vibrant reds symbolising joy or luck in playful chaos, all play a part in what we identify with in the Chinese Peranakan culture, that is centered around the families and their neighbors. Invited in with open arms, our guests are treated with honour and warmth that a family member would be.
