Good basic accommodation with terrific, helpful staff on site, good food (they did a great bbq night on Saturday) and the beach was slightly isolated from the main populated areas. Would definitely revisit, only complain would probably be the sandflies/mosquitoes that devoured at night!

Nice place with friendly staff. May 2015 But for the price they take, it is quite limited service: - bathroom equipment is super limited: no soap, no bath mat,... - food choice is limited when they decide to make buffet for everybody at 40MYR/person and 20MYR for my 2 years old baby.... They did it two evenings in the row,... More

This is a nicely secluded spot, but very close to Paya by boat. Staff is very good, friendly and helpful. Room however a bit too rustic for me, it was the basic beachfront chalet, maybe more deluxe choice better, but don't expect resort quality. This is rustic, eco stuff.

Stayed in Feb 2015 and even tough its not officially end of monsoon season but weather was good with sunshine all day long! Overall the room was pretty decent but somehow some photos in the website is not updated. A typical Malay Kampung design suits Tioman pretty well. We did not come with high expectation as was pre-inform by Melina... More

This resort is a hidden gem, for which we just about managed to get a room at the last minute. The little motor boat was there in time when our ferry arrived from Mersing. After a beautiful 5 min ride, we got to the resort, where Patrick and Dee warmly welcomed us, instantly taking on the weight of everyone's luggage.... More

We spent 5 days at Melina Beach in Tioman for some relaxing and diving. The trip to Tioman has been appropriately vilified in numerous places on this website so I won’t add to that noise, though I agree with it wholeheartedly. The Melina Beach hotel is pretty isolated (it’s a good 20 minutes walk to either of the towns nearby)... More

You would love the location of the resort if you like quiet holidays on the beach. This is no place for partying or frolicking. Secluded from other villages by natural boulders, it is a private strip of paradise on Tioman. This is the best service I have had at any hotel, resort, home stay or anywhere for that matter. We...

The owner Mr Patrick is from Ireland with his manager Amy are very friendly. They will come and greet you when you arrived. I would say the best quality of this resort is laid-back lovely resort and service. Thanks to Dee and team for that. Unfortunately there's not much choice in food and it's really expensive. But if you're up... More

To begin with, when you choose to go Tioman Island, you choose to go to a laid back, very green island that does not resemble Phuket or Koh Samui or Langkawi. We love Tioman, the village-ish set up, the dramatic back drop, the wild life.. do pick your beach to what you want to look for for your holiday. We... More

Dear Aiwee, Thank you for posting your report following your recent visit. I fully agree with you that Melina is not for everyone and we do try to outline our services very clearly at the initial booking stage. For guests reviewing our site on Tripadvisor there is a very clear overview written by us which I think honestly describes the... More
