We stayed here for a couple of nights in early January and were extremely disappointed. The staff all seem unhappy and rarely smile, service is poor and the neighbours are out to bring the hotel down! Neighbours were playing their headbanging music until 1am and then started again at 4am every day of the three very long days we stayed.... More

I am very dismayed by this review, and saddened to hear your comments and amount of speculation about accounts that did not happen. Firstly upon arrival was the first complaint about our showers and wanting to have a discount, our peak season New Year price is $110 for 4 persons including breakfast, tax and service which is reasonable considering our...

After traveling for 2 weeks in Indonesia visiting many cities and places, I must say that the most memorable experience was in Amed. "Life in Amed" is a very nice boutique hotel which I recommend any one or family who wants to relax and snorkel in crystal clear waters. But that is not the part that is most memorable. I... More

This is a very cute little hotel, the rooms / cabins are attractive with a high thatched roof and a loft area with two single beds. It has an efficient air con and is very comfortable. While this was not a problem during our stay in rainy season, the loft area could potentially be very hot in summer if you... More

My family of four spent two weeks in Indonesia and Life In Amed was the perfect end to our holidays. We stayed in one of the cottages and it was so cute. My kids loved the double-stores design and that their beds are at the top-floor. Open-air shower and toilet keep the bathroom area dry and airy. It is just... More

I recently spent 3 nights at Life in Amed and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. It was very peaceful and gave us some time to really relax. The food was exquisite so if you wanted to you could happily eat all three meals at your villa. We stayed in a private villa right on the beach which... More

We couldn't find a better place in Amed, first the booking was super easy and everything was arranged in no time. Then the place is super cute, I enjoyed my trip the minute I came in as I was greeted by the smell of Fragrant flowers. Then the location is brilliant as except the fisher man's family and the guest... More

Stayed at "Life in Amed" for three nights with a group of friends in October 2014. We stayed in the Perfumed Garden Beach House which is a very private three bedroomed house with its own pool. It was absolutely perfect for us - and would suit a group of friends, or a family group. The upstairs main bedroom was huge... More

We spent 5 days at this small compound of villas, near the beach in the quiet fishing village of Lean. I walked the beach every morning taking in the colour and activity as the fishing boats returned with their catch. The locals are very friendly - I was invited into two homes and to a wedding celebration. The food at... More

We had a fantastic week staying in one of the 6 beach cottages at Life in Amed. The staff were wonderful, the food was excellent and the setting magnificent. This is not a place to stay if you're looking for bustling nightlife, shopping etc, but to experience life in village surroundings with real local flavour - this is the place.... More
