About
Description
Step away from the hustle and bustle of city life and surround yourself with luscious greenery, where you’ll be greeted with a picturesque garden view as you wake up in The Rucksack Caratel - Garden Wing. Soak up the More rich heritage of Melaka in attractions such as the Melaka Sultanate Palace and Christ Church that are a short walk away. You can also grab souvenirs or personal loots in Dataran Pahlawan and Jonker Street – both minutes away from our uniquely heritage-blended hotel. Besides being close to numerous attractions, The Rucksack Caratel itself is a mystery adventure, waiting to be unboxed. Less
