Hotel Overview

Sense of place

The Melia’s enviable location places it in the centre of Makassar’s primary shopping and business districts, with the heart of the city quite literally on your doorstep. Losari Beach is easily reachable too, at just a ten-minute walk away.

Rooms at Melia Makassar

The hotel’s 135 rooms and suites are smart and sleek, each generously sized and offering marvellous city vistas. Their contemporary interiors feature sophisticated neutral interiors, rain showers and all the latest mod-cons.

Food & drink

The Melia’s Mercado restaurant provides all-day dining and cooks up a superb selection of local and international fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner – the spicy nasi goreng in particular comes highly recommended.  For lighter bites, Le Pool Bar specialises in healthy snacks, finger foods, and drinks – if you’re looking for something traditional try their range of cool ice teas. Yet it’s The Society sky lounge that’s the real showstopper. As its name might suggest, this is the place to see and be seen, where you can sample delicious artisan cooking and sip a cocktail whilst enjoying jaw-dropping panoramic views of the city. 

Facilities

You’ll find all the amenities on the fifth floor, where you can have a dip in the hotel’s indoor swimming, work off some steam at the gym and sauna, or rejuvenate with a spa treatment, yoga session or Jacuzzi soak. Spa and salon services include relaxation massages, reflexology, nail care, facial & body treatments, and hair & make up. 

Activities at Melia Makassar

Thanks to its central location, The Melia is perfectly placed for experiencing the historical and culinary highlights that Makassar is famed for.  Start off at Fort Rotterdam and Fort Somba Opu, the city’s two colonial buildings, then head out on a café and bar hop to sample local delicacies such as Coto Makassar - a sort of meat stew served with a tasty soup. You’ll find the locals at popular spots such as Kafe Kareba and Sentosa. During the evening, take the short drive to Losari beach for dessert and a romantic seaside stroll.
