“Beautiful Melia Benoa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011 via mobile

My husband and I stayed 6 nights with a honeymoon package. From our pickup at the airport right though to our departure we loved our time at the Melia Benoa.

Our room was setup beautifully and was large with a spacious bathroom and an additional separate toilet. we had beautiful fragrant frangipanis laid on our bed. The only downside was that there is no shower as such, the spa bath has a handheld shower head but nowhere to hang it so hair washing was tricky.

The food was great. We loved the breakfast buffet overlooking the lagoon and chose to eat lunch at the el patio restaurant instead of the buffet by the pool as we weren't hungry during the buffet lunchtime.

We loved the two outdoor cabaret dinners under the palms. We also have a romantic dinner on the beach ( clear skies, candlelit, fullmoon, hide tide) which was absolutely fantastic!!

The beach was great and swept every morning.

The day spa was awesome, we had a couples massage and two other visits, really helped relax after the long trip from New Zealand.

The staff were fantastic, incredibly friendly and recognised you by name.

The laundry service ( we got four pieces per person per day) was great and made it so nice to come home without a huge pile of laundry to do! Such an efficient service with clothes returned the same day.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Melia Benoa and have no hesitation on recommending it to others.

We would like to thank everyone at the Melia Benoa for making our holiday there such an amazing experience!

We booked this hotel at the last minute whilst already staying in Sanur. We had read the Tripadvisor reviews and also popped in the hotel whilst in the area. My may concern was how can we get value for money from an AI resort in Bali when everything is already so cheap.

We thought we would give it a go for the last 3 nights (tonight being the last, yep still here for one last night). If it went well we would book for longer next time.

I found booking direct through their web page was the cheapes as they had a 'best rate' price which none of the hotel booking sites could beat.

I had American dollars which I could pay in so the earlier poster who said they were charged more in local currency obviously didn't have cash. I was a little short and had to pay a bit in local currency, the difference between what I could get from the currency converter booths and the hotel rate was less than 200 rupiah a US dollar. Cash I think is best as the rates from my credit card company are appalling. Also exchange rates in Bali are so much better than at home.

We are fairly seasoned Bali travellers but this is the first time anywhere near Nusa Dua and we were concerned the Bali feel would be lost.

We are also fussy with food and do not like Buffett food, much preferring al a carte.

We had nothing to worry on any account.

The food from both the Patio restaurant for an al a cate lunch and then from the very nice Amarta restaurant was of a high quality and of what I concider to be appropriate restaurant size. My wife is not a rice eater and it was great that the Amarta also did side dishes. Whilst we were staying all inclusive the pricing for the B&B guest was good with mains ranging from under $5 to about $8 which was cheaper than many restaurants we have seen in Sanur even.

The local wine was Hatton cask wine and ok it's not Penfold quality it is very drinkable, as are the local Bali moon liqueurs and spirits. My only complaint would be that there were no cream liqueurs ( Baileys is a favorite of mine), an addition of a local version would be well received.

The staff were all pleasant, welcoming, happy to assist and went out of their way to make the stay fantastic. The hotel does a 'bagus' feedback comment sheet to acknowledge good staff. In al honesty it would be hard to highlight any particular staff as they were all so friendly and helpful.

We had emailed the hotel with room requests before staying and these requests wer responded to quickly by email and were able to be provided on checkin. The premium rooms are fantastic. We had a shower only so I guess it was a renovated room and was beautiful. The size is very good for what is the base level of bedroom. My only complaint with the room is the air conditioner which only had 2 speeds for the fan and no night time quite mode. Is was still fairly quite but I need almost silence.

The wifi in the lobby was ok but in today's age it would be good to have this provided in other areas free of charge.

We stayed blue class and that was fine.

I am already looking at booking for next year (April) and have no trouble recommending this hotel.

I would think it suits couples best as is fairly quite and may not have all the bells and whistles that children want - and for me this is great. There were children here during our stay and the hotel provided a children friendly service but it's not a lively non stop hotel resort.

The beach is nice enough, yes the tide does go out a fair way but not the hotels fault. It is very lively all morning on the beach with lots of activities and makes a much more peaceful walk way of an afternoon / evening.

The hotel is not 5 star but I think a good 4 star fit out with 5 star room size and all round service.

Hope this is helpful to some in deciding to stay here.

My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary there for 6 nights, we booked all inclusive and couln't believe the quality of the food, it was amazing. We thought they would be mean with the drinks, but you could have anything that was on the drinks list anytime. We booked the beach dinner which was amazing, being served on the beach was like being in a movie. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for pool view rooms, as others face the side of the hotel (street)
