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.

We stayed 9 nights in the standard Garden room. Was very spacious and more than enough for us as we didnt spend that much time in the room. First of all special mentions: Pool staff: Best - he's an asset to the hotel. Always friendly and will remember your name throughout the holiday. Special mention also to Ball and A - both work tirelessly round the pool. Reception: special thanks to June. Top tips: Dont bring a beach bag , the hotel provides one throughout your stay, but it's not to keep. They can be purchased at reception. Hotel also provides flip flops Dont bring toilet wipes or flush tissue- a high pressure hosed gun is there to be used. You will block the toilet otherwise. If you've not travelled to Thailand before, dont bring lots of clothes like I did. Shorts, casual trousers and T shirts fantastic and all you need. Places to visit by cab: Chewang - shuttle or £10 cab Fisherman's Village - our favourite- £10 cab Dont pay anymore than 400 THB for the return- haggle! Tips: Hotel charge 7% tax charge plus 10% service on everything which gets distributed between the staff each month, so dont feel you have to tip. On the last day we tipped those who we felt had deserved one. Drinks and food are a bit expensive we felt. Happy hour twice a day. Breakfast: plentiful and the staff work so hard. Special thanks to Hannah Massage: there is a 2 for 1 offer BBQ night - this is a must and well worth it. We enjoyed it soooooo much. Trip to see elephants: I did Elephant Sanctuary Spa - was fantastic paid 2200THB Read less

If you are looking for a five-star experience, without the corporate gloss, this is your place. The resort is nestled into a hillside with a beautiful infinity pool facing the beach. Our family of four arrived for a short break from the heat of Bangkok. We were immediately upgraded into a family villa with pool, a tiny oasis of privacy, in a very tranquil and green resort. The two restaurants served a great selection of food that hit every pallet, including that of the younger members of the family for whom Thai spicy food is not quite yet the option they prefer. The beach itself is small, intimate, and you really have a feeling of privacy which is difficult to find another, more crowded spaces on the island. The resort is not part of a chain, and as a result preserves a very boutique type feeling. The staff is exceptionally welcoming and helpful with anything that you may need. While that the price Is perhaps higher than you would expect, for our needs, it was worth every baht. Read less
