In 2010, Owners Melanie Alexandre and husband Frederic converted their famous Meli Melo restaurant into their dream home and hotel, inviting vacationers to delight in their signature French hospitality. The three-tiered hotel building features straight inclined roofs and bright mahogany colored paint, inspired by Melanie's creativity.


Wild split-leaf philodendrons drape the mighty rain tree in front of Hotel Meli Melo's small but distinct structure, where six hotel rooms are on the ground level and the owners live in the upstairs apartment.

The Medium Room, $50 per night (July-Aug.), hued with pink, orange and purple patterns, has queen- and twin-sized beds, A/C, private bathroom, Wi-Fi, and private porch with a hammock chair. Bountiful green bushes out front give each of the rooms its own privacy and extra coolness.

Services and amenities

As a Meli Melo guest, you can hop on any communal bike for free and ride all around town with ease. Stop at the supermarket (Super Ronny 2 is the closest, about a one-minute ride to the south) and bring back food to prepare using the hotel's community kitchen.
