Riverside Majestic Astana Wing

Riverside Majestic Hotel has been around Kuching for some time now. In 2018, they added another wing to it, called the Astana Wing. At the time of writing, the original Riverside Majestic Hotel (now known as Puteri Wing) is currently closed and undergone complete upgrading.

The hotel is quite strategic as its main entrance provide a scenic view of Kuching Waterfront, Fort Margherita and the State Assembly Building.

The hotel lobby is not exactly at the ground floor and guest would have to take either the escalator or elevator up to the first floor. 

The room is properly cleaned, sterilized and sealed before any guest check into the room. Guest would have to break the room seal before entering the room.

The superior room size (RM 154.32) is just right for me. The air conditioner speed can be adjusted and the window can be left ajar to let fresh air into the room. There are 2 types of pillows with different thickness and firmness which really help in my sleep.

The room view offers a good view of the city centre and the Sarawak River. I could barely hear the traffic below and this helps in my sleep here.

The hotel do not prepare any bottled water for the guest as they are against the single use plastic. Guest can get purified water from the water purifier dispensers available along the corridors.

This hotel also offers its own version of Sarawak Sling which is a concoction of Tuak, White Bacardi, Peter Heering, Pineapple Syrup, Grenadine Syrup and soda water.
