Make no mistake, this is one heck of a beach resort. What more can you ask for? Gorgeous private beach, large swimming pool with swim-up bar, all day inclusive dining and drinks, etc. Melia Benoa has everything that you'd desire from a beach getaway.
The hotel is somewhat less sophisticated and posh than some of it's pricier neighbors (Conrad, Westin, Hyatt) but for me, that is where the charm of Melia Benoa lies. Without trying too hard to impress, the hotel's simple yet balinese influence architecture does a brilliant job at soothing the weary soul.
I would like to reserve special praise for the hotel's numerous service crew. The entire service team at Melia benoa worked tirelessly and subtly to ensure that you have a pleasant stay. The professionalism and hospitality that they have exhibited made my holiday truly unforgettable. Thank you Melia Benoa
