Casa del Rio Hotel & Apartments
A stone’s throw from Melaka’s UNESCO-protected historic city center, Casa del Rio is a modern boutique hotel with Mediterranean charm boasting 66 luxuriously appointed rooms with unforgettable views. Drawing from the Portuguese heritage of Melaka and the Melaka Sultanate, the design blends history with 21st century guest needs.
High hydrostatic pressure from Melaka River water and potential chloride and sulphate attack by seawater from the Malacca Straits required special protection of the basement parking garage and the entire substructure of the hotel. Approximately 3,830m3 of concrete were treated with PENETRON ADMIX. The remaining 7,442m2 basement area, wet areas and bathrooms were coated with PENETRON.
