We stayed here sept 2012, I think its fairly new, maybe 12 months old. There are two pavillions, one for sleeping and other kitchen and lounge. The bedroom do not have fans, so you have to have the aircon on so you can freeze at night. This is dissapointing as you are in the tropics and at night, with a fan, this is all you need to sleep. The villas have rice paddies on both sides and we believe that the walls the surround the villas are not high enough to stop people jumping over. What this means in that you have to lock the door that leads to the open to the air bathroom at all times as you may wake up with someone in your room, uninvited. I think this security flaw was pointed out in earlier posts.
The other thing is the villas are very close to the a junction to the main rd. There are no other buildings from the villa (we were at the front) and rice paddies to the side which meant the roar of traffic was always there, especially at night. This meant that you had to close the door the the bedrooms at night to sleep.
This does sound like nit picking, doesn't it? But I guess noise and security can be issue and I think Amore needs to investigate this. A massive high wall would help but perhaps change the look of the place?
While I'm on the noise thing, the hot water heater bolted on our bedroom walls squealed so at night, I had to turn it off and then turn it back on in the morning.
But hey, the pool was great, the kitchen well outfitted with a filtered water dispenser and massive twin door fridge, LCD TV, FANS in the lounge (and AC). I mean, a very comfortable place. Canggu is a small strip of shops with the great deli just across the rd, very, very handy.
You are not far from Seminyak, echo beach is 15mins away and the local aussie "drunk" (James) is a fountain of knowledge on whats going on, track him down near the fridge at nearby Warung.
Warning, they;ll want 25,000 IRP to photocopy your passport when you check in (each passport)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amore Villas combines the finest traditions of Bali with elegance and modern style in this beautiful, new oasis of four X 4 bedroom villas. Every villa is completely self contained in its own manicured tropical gardens with its own large private pool and adjoining spacious outdoor entertaining pavilion. Each of these gorgeous bedrooms has its own ensuite, making the villas perfect for both families or groups of friends sharing. Every bedroom is also air conditioned with a king size four poster bed and luxurious linens. The kitchens are fully equipped for a self-catering holiday with large fridge freezer, microwave, stove etc. There is a large lounge/ dining room with plenty of seating as well as a 106 cm plasma screen TV, DVD player and Indovision cable. We can also arrange and cater for weddings in our villas. Please note, a very special draw card for our villas is that we are 50 metres from the world famous Canggu Club with its amazing facilities and Amore Villas have bought villa membership there, so that guests can enjoy the facilities at no cost to themselves. Those facilities include gym, sauna, fitness and aerobics centre, both floodlit and indoor tennis courts, air conditioned squash courts, swimming pools and library. Guests are also welcome to use the club's fabulous restaurant and bar but will obviously be responsible for the cost of their meals and drinks. All guest names simply need to be provided 48 hours before arrival so that holiday membership cards can be prepared in advance. Directly over the road there's the Canggu Deli, which sells every kind of foodstuff you can think of, plus a restaurant next door to the deli, called The Loops. If you don't fancy cooking, just hop in a cab to Seminyak or Legian for your choice of restautants far too numerous to mention. ... more less
