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

The manageress was lovely and refunded our money and didn't hold us to our booking. 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,

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...

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.
