Feedback from an actual Melina Beach Resort guest

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

It must have been our lucky day when our ferry arrived in Genting Village, because not only were we swooshed off in the private Melina Beach speedboat and resort-bound in a jiffy, but during the 10-minute boat ride the boat driver also informed us that we'd been given a free upgrade to the Melina Beach Resort Treehouse. My girlfriend and I were of course chuffed to bits.

Upon arrival at Melina Beach, Mr. Patrick, who's the manager on the Melina Beach grounds, led us to a fairly secluded and idyllic patch of beach and explained to us that the Treehouse would be all ours for the next few days.

Well, the Melina Beach Treehouse is the cutest accommodation we've ever stayed in. It felt like we'd somehow ended up in an episode of Swiss Family Robinson, the tv show of yesteryear. The Melina Beach Treehouse interior is just so unique. And the fact that you're actually living in a tree, well, it was quite a wonderful experience.

The Treehouse also offers fantastic panoramas of the breathtaking Melina Beach surroundings, which was the icing on the cake. And the cherry on top of the cake was the midnight rain shower that we were treated that first night. The pitter-patter and thunder resonating in the distance were nothing short of delightful. We slept like a rock that night.

Talk about a once-a-lifetime experience. That night especially was epic.

We found Melina Beach a lovely piece of paradise with a beach front that's second to none. The other great plus at this resort is the Melina Beach staff. Everyone here was very attentive to our needs; a big shout-out to Amy, in particular, who never tired of offering assistance, suggestions and information about what to do and where to go around the area.

Yes, Melina Beach is a little ways away from the main village, Genting, but this is the trade-off if it's seclusion you're after. Mind you, it's not too far a stroll to the village, which, incidentally, offers a change in pace, setting and cuisine. We actually enjoyed the walk up there and back from Melina and, in fact, we dropped by there several times.

As for the food options, whilst we couldn't really find fault with the dishes served, it's a good idea to point out that there's no Michelin stars at Melina Beach. The meals are basic, but that being said, they never fail to surprise the palate.

We also like the way it was all prepared from fresh, no easy feat, given that Melina is, after all, located on quite a remote little island.

Book your Melina Beach room and truly get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

If you're into nature, then you'll love the jungle treks that are organized. Evidently, Tioman's rainforest is millions of years old and you really do get a sense of its history in the sights of its flora and fauna and its ever-resonating din - quite awesome.

We also recommend going on a snorkeling trip. Pulau Tioman isn't called a snorkeling and scuba-diving heaven for nothing.

In a nutshell, Melina Beach Resort is certainly recommendable. It's a friendly place, with friendly people. And comes at a friendly price.

Tip: We were told that Melina Beach is currently building new beach front villa clusters, which will offer stand-alone accommodation for those who prefer additional privacy. Apparently, these units are available from this year.
