From all the team at Melali,



Terribly sad to leave Melali after only one night! Thanks to Liam and all the staff I felt at home from the very first minute I arrived. Sometimes there are places around the world where you would just stay forever and Melali was no exception. Can’t wait to come back to check the new suites. Alla Prossima!

I don’t know why everyone says Melali feels like home... if home felt anything like this place, I would never leave home again! Thank you for everything!! For others reading these lines, go surfing with Steamy! Go to Thomas Beach! Watch the Sunset every night! Never leave!

Thank you so much for the nice time. We enjoyed our stay so much and felt at home right away. You created this place to a little paradise! Thanks for all the help and great information abut the best spots to visit. You are lovely hosts. We will come back!

Everything about this place was perfect! After eagerly following you on instagram you lived up to every breathtaking photo. Our villa was fab! Breakfast was to die for. The towels felt like clouds (and smelt so good). Thumbs up to all the staff. You were both so lovely. Your knowledge of the local area was an invaluable gift. We will be back!

Wow! Liam and Elise are amazing hosts. The property is first class, beautifully designed. We can only be thankful for such a fantastic experience at Melali. This exceeds all our expectations of a Bali villa!

We cant thank you all enough for making the end of our Bali trip one to remember. From booking to arriving, all the recommendations, to checking outgas been an absolute breeze. Of all the villas we’ve stayed at over the past three weeks, yours has been the one we felt the most at “home”. We can’t wait to come back already and will definitely recommend Melali to all our friends. Take care and see you soon!

Wow Wow Wow - easily the most beautiful place we have ever stayed, giving our Bali trrip the perfect end. Thank you so much Liam and Elise for everything, you really have thought of everything. It’s the little things that make this place so special. We can’t wait to come back.

We are the first (hope not the last) visitors from Ukraine. The hosts are awesome people. Had a great time here. We’ll come back one day!
And these awesome towels
And healthy breakfasts
And calm nights
And a dog - Oh Dippy (:
Melali, we will miss you!

You are the best! A&A x

It was such a dream to stay at Melali. By far the most wonderful stay of our honeymoon and one of the most amazing places we’ve ever stayed anywhere. Thanks so much for teaching us how to scoot around - such a game changer! We will remember Melali fondly forever. With hugs and love,

We really enjoyed our time here. You have created a beautiful place and very special atmosphere. Was great meeting you all. We will be back!

I know what it takes to run your own place, but believe me, you rarely see elsewhere in the world the kind of dedication you have. You have managed to achieve just the right balance. Just carry on doing what you are doing because it is just perfect the way it is.

Wow, wow, wow!! What a gorgeous place to stay! Thank you for sharing your oasis with us and thank you to the lovely ladies in the kitchen for the AMAZING breakfasts! To get engaged at Melali has made it even more special to us and we can’t wait to come back as husband and wife!

We couldn’t have been happier to spend our last few nights of our post Bali wedding stay at Melali! It was everything we hoped for and more. The property is amazing - from the gorgeous rooms to the super yummy breakfast - everything has been perfect. Liam and Elise - you guys are super stars and such perfect hosts. Our stay wouldn’t have been the same without you. We will be back!
