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.

My stay @ Melati At the airport we were greeted with frosty washcloths and water by a very good driver. The van was luxurious and the ride comfortable.

My stay @ Melati At the airport we were greeted with frosty washcloths and water by a very good driver. The van was luxurious and the ride comfortable. The hotel staff greeted us warmly with more frosty cloths (believe me, they are very welcome) and a refreshing drink. Even though it was 2200 they were fresh and escorted us to our fabulous villa and oriented us to operations and to what was available. Here is where you will see my only complaint. They had a program that would have significantly reduced costs for us but they failed to mention it and i just stumbled across it in the room manual. I was there for 4 days and figure i wouldve saved a ton of money. We settled in to our sparjling, elegant surroundings, thoroughly appreciating the spaces to unpack! I could go on about the room ad infinitum... The private pool was especially welcome to dip into when I didn't want to walk the distance to either of the GORGEOUS pools at the resort. It was cool and clean and bigger than i had expected. The service here from the bar to the restaurants; from the spa to the golf cart "taxi" rides was phenomenal. They all seemed so happy to look after us! I just loved it! My massage therapist, Namsom, was so sweet to even braid my hair for me. The lovely grounds and gardens and waterfalls and lushness were immaculately kept by friendly gardeners. The meal that i had there was off the charts in appearance, flavor, presentation and service. The beverage service is always quite strange in Thailand and it was here too. The Melati Beach Resort is definitely a destination place and I missed it when I was on excursion to snorkeling and exploring adventures. My friend's wedding was handled by the event coordinator, Hannah was the most spectacular wedding I ever attended ( with the exception of the beach reception venue) The food was phenomenal, the string duo sublime and the DJ and photogs awesomely professional. The Melati exceeded all of my expectations and I very much look forward to returning again! Read less

What a fabulous place. We were offered a free upgrade for 2 nights to this hotel after staying in the Chaweng Regent Hotel which is the sister hotel. Whilst at Chaweng you’re in the thick of everything you need, here is a calming oasis. No distractions outside the resort and no sellers/vendors on the beach 🏖. A perfect location for anyone looking to get away from it all. All the staff work tirelessly and the resort is beautiful. There were a lot of children here but they didn’t bother us. We stayed in the Presedential Suite and all can say is WOW 😮 and thank you 🙏 The pool and beach were fabulous and the breakfast was the best. We’re returning visitors to the Chaweng Regent and hopefully will be returning visitors to the Melati which is ideal for 3 to 4 days of tranquility. Thanks again for our fabulous villa 🙏 Read less

I cant say enough about this gorgeous resort. It keeps bringing us back, this being our 3rd stay and we also bought some family with us on this trip. They equally loved The Melati as much as we do. Everyone from the airport transfers,reception staff, housekeepers, garden staff, chefs,food and Beverage staff, pool staff, spa staff make our holiday so special, they are all so friendly and want to help you in anyway they can. Both restaurants are fantastic with such tasty food, we also were surprised with a romantic dinner on the beach, this we highly recommend, so pretty and the food was stunning. The villas are so spacious , comfortable and quiet . Every time we leave The Melati it leaves us wanting to come back and we will. Read less
