Melati Beach Resort & Spa

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

The pools at Melati Beach Resort & Spa are worlds apart – but equally inviting. One’s a beachside lagoon, with palm tree islands, a pool bar, and waterside cabanas adding to the hotel’s tropical-meets-contemporary styling. The other’s like an ancient Thai pool, with sunken steps leading up from its calming waters into a zen-like garden space. They’re both so beautiful, you may forget to head down to the sandy beach.

Limited cuisine even though there are 2 restaurants 2. Attached pool with the room not cleaned everyday and water temperature not maintained (becomes too cold) 3. Last but not the least, the hotel would not allow us to take our dirty clothes in the laundry bags provided in the room. They said it is chargeable. I have travelled a lot around the world and no hotel has ever charged for this, let alone a 5 star resort like this one. It was a cloth bag but many other hotels & resorts have cloth laundry bags but dont charge if the customer takes it with him. Left a very bad taste in the mouth. Read less

We stayed there for 5 days with our 2 small kids and had a great time. The rooms were spacious, the beds were huge and staff was very nice. The pool by the beach is just spectacular. The hotel is located by a lovely beach that is basically private. There is a lodge next door that has access to it but there was only couple of guests staying there so the beach was quite empty. The food in the beach front restaurant is very good albeit a bit pricey. They only challenge is that the hotel is very secluded which is nice if we just want to stay at the hotel and enjoy its amenities but if you want to go to a different restaurant or shops you need to always take a taxi and go outside. It wasn’t an issue for us but might be if you want to explore more restaurants Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would be happy to visit the hotel again Read less

The facilities are very good, there are 2 pools, 2 restaurants, one being a superb Thai restaurant. The resort is in lush tropical gardens with water ponds & their own herb garden. The spa facility means you can get superb massages & beauty treatments. They run great tours, we had a personal tour of the island and temples - a fantastic way of learning about the Thai culture. Highly recommended although we prefer it being kept a secret! Read less

Chose Melati for it’s secluded location and grounds - keen on seeing some wildlife. It was perfect. Six of us travelling together so had a pool villa and grand deluxe room. Both were fantastic - spacious and perfectly clean. Staff were lovely and facilities were great. Thai restaurant was really enjoyable. No problem getting a taxi to take you anywhere on the island. Spent hours watching birds and butterflies and spotting frogs and toads at night. Read less
