With the location of Melina your not left with much choice to eat as the nearest restaurants are a 20mins walk through the jungle. not ideal after dark. The food is average and higher priced the local restaurants but... More

This was our second visit and stay at Melina. Our first trip was in July 2012. It has improved and expanded since then but staying true to the concept, we still love the quiet, relaxed environment that the resort offers. I would say that it is not for everyone. Being an eco-friendly resort, the amenities is basic and environmentally friendly... More

I booked Melina on basis of reviews here and was not disappointed. The resort is situated in a private cove (no surrounding resorts) between Paya and Genting beaches, which are both a 20/25 min trek through on a jungle path respectively. Upon arrival to Paya ferry terminal Melina's boatman whisked us 5 mins away to the resort in the neighbouring... More

To be fair they just had hosted a large party of school kids and I really commend them for doing this, if i was on a party trip and of the right age this would have been a wonderful trip.

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,
