Menumbing Heritage Hotel
Being a significant part of Bangka history and also acknowledged as Heritage Site by Bangka Tourism Board, AnakJajan must say that staying in Menumbing Heritage was an interesting experience, the minute we entered the hotel, we can feel the historical vibes immediately with classic colonial architecture, charming yet very stylish and of course instagenic (instagrammable).

What makes Menumbing Heritage special is the history from the building. The building was built originally for military compound in 1866 and then was reconstructed into a hotel in 1980. Later than, the construction has been continued to renew the hotel but keeping the original aesthetic of the building and in September 2016, Menumbing Heritage held a Grand Opening Ceremony.

The hotel has 4 types of rooms, Signature, Junior Suite, Deluxe and Superior. The room we stayed was Deluxe room. Talking about the food, supervised by Culture Royale Group, other than international dishes, Menumbing Heritage also offers various local dishes using the best local ingredients. For breakfast, AnakJajan had the local Bangka Noodle or Bakmi Bangka, old school Bangka style bread toast, porridge and addictive deep fried mini shrimps accompanied by local Bangka coffee, definitely a perfect way to start the day.
