Chocolate with a luxe feel

Renovated in early 2015, Hotel Melamun offers a row of duplex style cottages facing the restaurant, pool and a tempting chocolate spa.
The tastefully modern, air-con rooms are spacious, spotless and serene and much more appealing than they appear from outside.
Although fairly simply styled, the rooms feel luxurious with quality furnishings and finishes, large comfy beds and a muted colour scheme. Glass doors open to the furnished veranda cooled with an outdoor ceiling fan. Sheer curtains offer privacy, and heavy drapes block the light. Squeaky clean ensuite bathrooms continue the luxe feel with a deep bathtub, and separate rain shower.
The smallish turquoise pool is not quiet long enough for a decent lap, but perfectly adequate for soak or a splash. Umbrella shaded sun lounges accompany the traditional Balinese guardian sculptures.
We didn’t try the chocolate spa, but it looked very professional, with an assortment of treatments, a little pricier than a beach massage, but still reasonable. The on-site restaurant offers an array of chocolate-based desserts as well as other selections.Staff told us that a chocolate welcome drink is offered to guests too (notice a theme here?). Limited a la carte breakfast selections are included in the rate as is free WiFi. Staff are friendly and very keen to please. Hotel Melamun is a 300-metre walk to the beach along a street lined with local restaurants. If you’re after a small quiet place, Hotel Melamun is an appealing midrange offer with an aura of quality and professionalism (and chocolate).
