Beach Melati Apartments
Ranked #31 of 87 Hotels in Legian
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 February 2010

Arriving at Melati Apartments is no fanfare affair. To be honest, it's stuck behind a cafe with a high wall around it. No reception to speak of. This could be disconcerting for travelers used to the grand (but wasteful) foyers in Bali hotels.

So that's the bad news (for those who enjoy those big empty voids at the front of the hotel).

The rest is all good.

This is very different living to your hotel style living. If you like a resort, please read this paragraph. If you like a villa, skip to the next one. The reason I do this is that I have found many people like different things in Bali. So one review doesn't fit the bill!

Resort lovers: you will like the communal pool. But you will LOVE the room you have to live in! We stayed in a 2bdrm apartment on the ground floor, right next to the pool. You would pay a fortune at Santika Beach Hotel (for example), for this privilege, and it would be just a room. With this, you get a kitchen, lounge room, dining room and separate bedrooms.

if you have children, it is perfect, although if your children are rowdy, I would not recommend it. However, if your children understand the words "no bombs" and "keep it down a tad", they will be just fine!

We travel here on business, so for us, it was perfect. Plenty of room to work, wife (you need to buy it, but it's reliable, 155.000 / 24 hours). It's serviced daily and the aforementioned cafe out the front probably does the best coffee in Bali. They also will let you run a tab. Their beer is reasonably priced, food is fresh and it's run by Aussies. Hats off to them!

For the villa lover: you may not like the lack of privacy, but for value for money, it is much cheaper and just as spacious.

We love Villa Coco for its seclusion, but when they were booked out (I shouldn't have posted such a glowing review!!!), we booked in here instead. This is different to anything we have ever stayed at, but we give it thumbs up.

This is so worth a try. If you stay in Bali a lot, a week out of your life won't kill you. When you are inside your apartment, it is quiet. Sleep quality is perfect, no noise at night, dark rooms.

For those with kids: get a second story apartment, or top floor. One, for safety. Two, because you can effectively 'end' pool time by going upstairs. Much more difficult if it is right their in front of them!

As a seasoned Bali traveler, (around 50 times) I have no hesitation recommending this property. It IS different, but I think it has more pluses than minuses. It beats Santika Beach hands down, and is also cheaper!!!!

Feel free to contact me with any specific questions.

We enjoyed our stay at Beach Melati Apartments. We stayed in Room 105 first week. Nice room opens onto the communal pool so no privacy but good for socialising. Once inside the room we didn't hear anything. Later, (we went to Nusa Dua) we stayed in Rm 204.
Upstairs and more private. Bigger beds in this room. Loved our stay there though it did cost more than we normally pay.
