Philippe and his staff were great hosts and would be back again! Thx for the pleasant stay!!!
My friend and me stayed at Melody Hotel for 5 nights. The room was a double bed and 1 bath shared by 2 people. Overall, our experience staying here was mixed.
Day 1: We were picked up at the airport by Thomas, one of the staff at Melody. He was very courteous and extremely helpful in getting us familiarized with the place.
Observations once we checked in, the place in general is underwhelming in comparison to the photographs put up. The place isn't as "grand" as it looks in the 2 photographs put up. The room is smaller than I expected. There was no Wifi in the room, air-conditioning wasn't working, no mirror or working power sockets in the room. On bringing this up with the host, we were told "the hotel is new and was just setup yesterday". The wifi, we were told was available only in the hotel lobby and a stronger wifi would be setup the next day.This IMO wasn't justified. The price for that day was still the same wasn't it? It's not like we were offered a discount.
Day 2: Air-conditioning/power sockets were fixed, still NO wifi. I'm a software professional so It is important for me to check my mail periodically. I had to sit in the lobby for couple of hours for wifi access. This wasn't easy considering it's 90 degrees, humid and riddled with mosquitoes outside the room.
Day 3: In room Wifi was fixed. Another thing, We were told on Day 1 that bike rentals are $7-$9 per day for 4 days. But when we asked on day 3, the prices were increased to $25 due to "new year peak season demand". Kinda shady considering this is a legit high class resort.
P.S. Melody hotel (where we stayed) is a spin-off hotel to Anemalou Villa Resort in Seminyak ( (website hidden) ). Melody was recently setup. So bike rentals, staff are shared across the two.
A special mention about the super courteous working staff that saved the whole experience for us, especially, Thomas, Desa and Aayung.

If I would have a look at the feedback for this villa before, I would never rent this, I will write all the plus and minus
plus: private pool, daily cleaning, friendly stuff, photo on the picture is almost the same as in reality, only missing curtain at gazebo
minus: unreal bad internet connection -- 0.11-0.12 mb/s and ping is very high, although the owner promised us that the speed is going to be 2 MB/s, he lied us to persuade us to rent the villa, however i wrote exactly that this was an important criteria
As this is a complex of villas, you hear everything what your neighbours are doing including listening loud music and drunk screams
A lot of insects because the complex is located near dirty river, a lot of moscitos and wood louse.
Villas are located between Kuta and Seminiak and to reach a Seminiak you should make a way .
You hear the music from disco every night from 10 pm till 6 am
You can`t go nowhere by foot and there is nothing to do without your own transport
Very expensive restaurant comparing to same restaurants in Seminiak
The ratio price/quality is really bad, you can find much better options for this price in Bali
