I have mixed review about Amatoa resort. I like the staffs flexibility of canceling my other room (I booked 2 rooms) after knowing that my suite has additional bed. Staffs were also able to fulfill my request to provide special dietary meals. Other than that, there are many things need to be improved by Amatoa. First, they required that you... More

I visited Amatoa Resort, on 25-27 March 2014. From Jakarta to Amatoa, taking 13 hours!! What an exhausting trip. The view, and all pictures uploaded by another reviewers, were exactly the same. But I didn't think that trip to Tanjung Bira (13 hrs to Amatoa), was worth it. I've been in Belitung. The beaches were even more beautiful, cheaper, and... More

We came to Bira for the first time and we found Amatoa through the internet. It turns out that this place was heavenly. Nice rooms, nice food and nice staff. We came to book only for 1 night but we ended adding 1 more night since we love it. The beach surrounding the Resort are pure white sand and i... More

Ignore the previous negative reviews, this resort has been upgraded and Melissa and the friendly staff are doing a great job. Perched on the cliff it has beautiful views over the bay & the infinity pool literally at the door of your room is a great example of what an 'infinity pool' should be:- an almost seamless visual transition between...

I visited Amatoa to grab some meal for lunch with my husband & sister. When we were there, all of their guests were island-hopping so no guests were around but us (and later, there was a beautiful woman, I assumed Spanish, came to have lunch too). It is a very nice place, even the best resort in Bira, based on... More

When we arrived there some other guesses stayed in the hotel then a day after we were the only visitors so it was very quiet. We stayed in this beautiful hotel for 3 nights and were disappointed with the quality of service with that high price they demanded. The architecture and design of this hotel is great reminding me to... More
