“Excellent ambiance & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The architecture of this boutique friendly hotel is secluded, private and relaxing, with your own private jacuzzi and indoor outdoor living. The service was attentive, professional and most importantly friendly and thoughtful. The rooms are spotless, and everything is clean. Although we did not try the restaurant for dinner our breakfasts were served every day to our villa and we had a lovely range to choose from - taking into consideration healthy options which is a nice way to start the day. The only thing to take note of is the location as I'm always all about that when booking a hotel however it's only a short 5 mins ride to the beach with their complimentary car service, if you are looking to be exactly on the beach this isn't. That being said - after staying with the Amala I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Seminyak, and doubt you will find better value.

Dear Bonsairivercruise,
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your comments, even though you are back to your busy daily routine. Your time with us here at The Amala was definitely too short, and we are already looking forward to the next time we can welcome and pamper you with our services. There is nothing more rewarding for us then welcoming a familiar face back to The Amala. Once again we thank you for your time and we are looking forward to see you in September again.
Sunny greetings from Bali

The staff were fabulous and the overall attention to detail excellent. The Amala is an experience: everything you want is at your fingertips. The whole place is elegant, quiet, composed. We had one small issue and that was with our plunge pool which was running low on water and was slightly over chlorinated but otherwise, the two days we had at the Amala, was perfect.

Dear Sailinsuze,
Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback, without valuable feedback from our guest we would not be able to improve our services. I would like personally apologize if the pool problem has brought any inconveniences to your stay with us. Because of your feedback it will be very easy for us to avoid such inconveniences in the future.
Once again I thank you for your comments, and the Amala team and I would be very honored to welcome you back in the near future.
With best regards from Bali , Madlen Ernest

The masseurs were PHENOMENAL!!!

The team is very nice and friendly.

The breakfast was superb and you would have nice options of fresh food full of flavors.

The only downside is that you will have to leave.

But you will certainly returned.

My husband and I have just had a wonderful 5 day stay in a spa villa. Amala is a small boutique hotel with excellent facilities, helpful, knowledgeable staff with great English and immaculate presentation. We were surprised to find the spa jacuzzi unheated (but it was a perfect plunge pool) and were delighted by the steam room in the shower. The bed was very comfortable (often in Asia can be very firm) and the room layout was well designed. The restaurant was very good and each of our meals was delicious. We found the location perfect for exploring Seminyak - easy 5 min walk to shops, quick taxi to beach or busy Petitenget but private and quiet amid its lush gardens. We recommend highly.

Room Tip: spa villa # 2 was amply spacious and the steam room is a treat.

Beautiful place, and excellent service. Even though our flight was an hour late, driver was still there waiting patiently and had cold beverages waiting in the car.

Great privacy in the villas, and we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast.I would stay again. It's a shame that the noise from the outside traffic disrupts the serenity. Taxis also find it difficult to locate the hotel since it's a boutique place.

Thank you very much for your comment in regards to the Taxis Service in Seminyak, this is a great comment. We can very easy help other guests to avoid such inconveniences by recommending to our guests to use the famous Bali Deli Supermarket, which is just located opposite our Resort, as an orientation point.
Feedback is very important to us in order to keep improving our services, once again thank you very much.
