The resort itself is breathtaking but the resort does just about everything to make it a terrible experience. Pros: -Amazing location and views - BBQ night is a ton of fun with a great fire show - recommend - the rooms are temp controlled, large and have just about everything you could ever need Cons: - The service is beyond atrocious; Examples: 1. 20 min waits for drinks at the swim up bar as the staff go about their own conversations 2. No service at the beach (What???) 3. There are more workers playing ping pong with each other than attending to guests - Tap water is undrinkable and they charge for bottled water - WIFI is extremely weak - Breakfast is disgusting Looking forward to a blanket response from the resort and no actions taken...

We stayed with 2 adults and 2 kids (age 10 & 12). The villas are beautiful and a great size for a family. There are 2 pools. One is for adults only (which was mostly empty) and a larger pool beside the beach for everyone to use. Warning to parents as there’s no lifeguard. Food was nice but not great. They could do with a better variety. The staff… Read more
We stayed with 2 adults and 2 kids (age 10 & 12). The villas are beautiful and a great size for a family. There are 2 pools. One is for adults only (which was mostly empty) and a larger pool beside the beach for everyone to use. Warning to parents as there’s no lifeguard. Food was nice but not great. They could do with a better variety. The staff were brilliant. All staff went out of their way to talk to guests and genuinely seemed to enjoy working there. The head chef comes out and talks guests and everyone from the team at the pool tobthe porters are all fabulous. We particularly thought that Baw who served us at the pool everyday should be praised. It’s staff like him that will be the reason guests go back to this resort. The beach was small and clean but unfortunately the water clarity was terrible. I’d describe it as murky. Overall a great little resort that we’d recommend. One special request is that the resort please stop using plastic straws and bottles. Read less

Two parts to this review. 1st wedding: On the 3rd of February we had our special day at Melati, Hannah our wedding planner was amazing! she organised everything and answered all questions and helped us with planning our dream day, she made it completely stress free and made the wedding planning a fun experience. our wedding day ran so smoothly and the ceremony and reception decor was stunning! what I had asked her to do, her and her team at Melati did even better. Everything was perfection from the ceremony to reception and the food and beverages were delicious. Our guests were so impressed with our wedding and had lots of fun. words cannot describe how beautiful and special our day was. and we cannot thank Hannah and her team at Melati enough for giving us the best start to married life. Lots of love from us newly weds 💕 2nd part(accommodation) When we arrived at Melati we were blown away with luxury and kind service we received. The resort is the most stunning place I've ever seen, if you want to stay in a tropical paradise surrounded by beautiful gardens and pings then this is the place for you. We stayed in the pool villa and it was superb,so clean and everything about it was luxury. The main pool in front of the beach was lovely and spacious with a swim up bar,which we loved also the beach is so clean and quite that you could stay there all day. Both restaurants had incredible food we mainly ate at the view restaurant because of the stunning view of the beach and surrounding islands. All staff were very friendly especially Baw from the swim up bar, he made our day every time we spoke to him. The team at Melati also let me and my family plant a tree in memory of our grandma that passed a year ago.( Thanks to the help of our wedding planner Hannah for organizing it with the gardening team) We will definitely be back for another holiday in the future, we absolutely love Melati resort. ( only minor problem we had was some of our family/guests had some mis comunications with the front desk due to language barrier) Thankyou again Melati our stay was one yo remember ❤ Read less
