The whole resort is eco-friendly, giving much respect to nature. The chalet is very spacious and well designed. Very friendly manager - Patrick and staff like Guru and Rose. Professional and personal. My children likes the beach, which is exclusively for Melina. Just want to suggest for footwear, something easy to take off for you to walk up the beach,

Came to Melina with my boyfriend. It was our first time in Tioman and booked a room with Agoda. The view and atmosphere was up to our expectations. Especially the calming and spa like room decorations. We were greeted by Pauline and Patrick. They were exceptionally friendly and made us feel like home. Maggie, the dog, their long term guest...

Dear Sofie, Thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor following your visit last week. I am pleased that you found the resort peaceful and relaxing, one of the fundamentals here is to keep it that way in order that our guests can get away from the hustle and bustle of their modern busy lives.

Truly a must-try place if you're looking to live close to nature. MBR's beach has a rich enclave of protected marine life, and so the snorkeling was very good. The gorgeous view of the sunset from the cafeteria was absolutely stunning and capped off our trip nicely. Very friendly, warm and helpful staff made the stay very pleasant and we... More

Melina is a place to withdraw from the normal pressures and routine of life. Located in a secluded bay a short boat ride from the nearest pier, the resort allows relaxation, swimming and a full getaway in a true tropical island setting. Melina offers a genuine family friendly environment that is not formula 'resort'; it is a small scale operation... More

I booked the family room for myself and 5 college-aged guys, a total of 6 people. We had some transportation issues getting to and from Tioman because of the tides (it was a nightmare) but we checked in very late after 10pm on a Saturday and they had a boat ready for us at the Paya jetty. We were transported... More

Dear Renee, Thank you for your report on Tripadvisor, it was a pleasure to look after you and your friends, I just wish the ferry timings had been more favourable for you as you really did not have much time to relax and enjoy the resort.

11 of us descended on Melina over a bank holiday weekend. We stayed in a Garden room, a Premium beachfront room and one of the beachfront chalets - all were great, very spacious. The beachfront chalets are particularly nice as they have a separate lounge and lovely balcony. We went on a snorkelling trip and a longer boat trip (waterfall,... More

We choose Melina as we wanted a mid range place to stay at Tioman and saw its reviews on TA so booked 3 nights. Their sea taxi driver saw us almost immediately as we stepped off from the ferry and took us on a short ride to the resort. After having lunch at the resort and being settled in, we... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review following your visit. I am glad that you enjoyed you stay in Melina but sorry ti hear that you found the Island very quiet.

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!
