MELAKA: Majestic Hotel will celebrate the unique Portuguese San Pedro festival with its own cultural performances.

Kessler said highlights of the hotel’s event included performances by local Portuguese dance troupe Dommarina.

The group was formed in 2007 and performs the community’s folk dances and songs.

The hotel is offering a package priced at RM638nett which includes accommodation in a deluxe room with breakfast for two, a San Pedro Night for two, and a 50-minute San Pedro-inspired spa treatment for one.

Guests also have the option of booking just dinner at RM180nett per person.
