If you are looking for a place to stay for the duration of your holiday in Ko Samui, I would highly recommend the Melati Beach Resort & Spa. With its peaceful atmosphere and excellent service, I would definitely stay there again if I were to go back.
Upon arrival my family and I were given wet towels which had a jasmine aroma and iced jasmine tea which was absolutely delicious. The resort is well known for its jasmine spa package (body scrub, massage, and facial) which you could get at the Melati Spa. My family and I spent quite some time at the spa, but that is a different blog post all together.
You are given an attendant(s) who will drive you through the grounds in a buggy to your villa. Attendant(s) are assigned to you to make sure you feel comfortable during your stay, and will show you around your villa, give you an introduction on the resorts facilities and activities.
That’s one of the best things about the Melati Beach Resort and Spa; there was always something to do. Everyday, there were different activities to do on the resort whether it was dinner on the beach under the stars, Thai self-defense classes or yoga on the beach. You can ask your attendants about what’s on, or you can check it out on the notice board in the lobby. There should be an information sheet in your room which lists activities with the dates and times they are taking place.
That feeling you get walking on the beach is amazing, you can get that amazing feeling as much as you like thanks to the resorts private beach. Only those who are staying at the Melati have access to the beach. As it is really hot you might feel thirsty, but that can be taken care of thanks to happy hour. You can enjoy some cocktails, milkshakes, smoothies, juices, coconut water and of course ice cream while sunbathing on the beach.
If you want to have some peace and quiet, you can enjoy having a swim in the resorts adult’s only pool. It is very quiet there. Speaking of peace, you can enjoy a moment to yourself as you stroll through the grounds of the Melati.
The grounds were absolutely beautiful thanks to the exotic plants and flowers, the waterfalls, the mango trees, and the coconut and banana trees. A stroll through the grounds was always pleasant, what I loved about my trip to Thailand was the people are so friendly, so humble and so cheerful. Every morning whenever we passed a worker they would greet us cheerfully. It was so nice; they really do look after you up there and make you feel very welcome.
The staff was brilliant, so friendly, and so helpful they make you feel comfortable and they make you feel welcome. Whenever we ate at the restaurant at the resort called, The View, we were hosted very well and we enjoyed the food a lot we ate there a lot during our stay at the Melati.
With excellent service, beautiful surroundings, very friendly and helpful staff I would highly recommend the Melati Beach Resort and Spa to anyone that plans on going to Ko Samui.
