“This Resort / Villas is LikeHeaven on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We were recommend these villas by Friends and Clients that had previously stayed here so our
expectations were really high,The staff were extremely professional and friendly and our check in was quick and flawless.We stayed in the Waterfall villa for 3 days and in the Pool villa for a further three days as the Waterfall villa was booked out and we made our arrangements last minute.
It was great because we got to experience two different villa types.The waterfall Villa is my First preference because of the bigger pool and the larger living Spaces and was priced accordingly.
The Decor is modern and fresh and the rooms always impeccably Clean. The pool villa although a bit smaller was fantastic as well.Very well designed villas to maximize living spaces.
I could go on and on about this little piece of heaven but you really need to go there and experience first hand all that these villas have to offer.I have been to Bali more than 15 times and these villas as definitely the best i stayed in and do highly recommend.
Keep up the good work Amana villas.
We will be coming back to visit you again soon.
Location of these beautiful villas are the best because you surround by all the best restaurants
and a stones through away from the beach if that's your preference to swim.
The Food was amazing when we booked the private chef for a special dinner and breakfast daily was great also.
From the moment you make your booking you will be impressed with the wonderful service provided

Room Tip: book early and try get the Waterfall Villa. the space is large and very calming and it feels like yo...

Dear Markandsalxxx,

Thank you very much for your stay with us, and we are extremely to hear that this is your best stay in 15 visits to Bali. It is extremely encouraging to hear that our efforts to provide the best service possible is well appreciated.

We are also glad that you noticed our services right from the time you make your reservations. The Amana service starts from reservations, not when you check in at the villas. Our pre-arrival Guest Experience Menu allows our guest to further customize their stay, select from a host of complimentary items, select the level of butler service required and arrange for surprises for your loved one.

Once again, we thank you for your stay and look forward to seeing you again in Bali !

Stayed in Waterfall villa...beautiful pool with spacious two floors modern layout, which is very clean and in great condition with extreme privacy. Service and breakfasts were excellent. Located near many restaurants, however, a 10 minute walk from the beach (hotel would provide free drop-off if driver is available). The hotel car is quite pricey, but very comfortable with even wifi available in the car. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All villas are similar, however the waterfall villa is very unique

I booked stay at Amana Villas for 4 days as part of a surprise holiday I had organised for my partner. from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel welcome and the service couldn't have been better! We stayed in one of the signature villas, it was stunning and immaculate inside and out and your "Butler" would always arrange for housekeeping when you were not in the villa so you are not disturbed. We both loved the waterfall, and it turns on at 9.30am so makes the best alarm clock ever.

The inclusion of an iPad and iPhone in the villas is a great idea, along with the excellent wifi it enabled us to keep intouch with friend and family back home and log in to trip advisor to research restaurants and things to do. They also include a substantial music playlist on the iphones to play through either of the high quality speaker docks. You can even request a local sim card which comes pre loaded with credit so you can avoid the high international calling charges, and its free.

The food was outstanding and beautifully presented. We would highly recommend the pancakes for breakfast! Although everything we had on the menu was perfect, and there is a lot of choice.

If you are going for a romantic break I dont think you can do better than Amana as they offer a selection of romantic touches that can all be arranged in secret before you go or with your Butler when you get there. We had a selection that I had arranged in secret and they did everything perfectly and without my other half noticing.

I cannot recommend Amana enough or pick a single flaw with our stay and I cant see us staying anywhere else in Seminyak.

Found this gem of a villa through tripadvisor while I was searching for the next perfect place to spend my birthday. I was encouraged to book this place because of the many excellent reviews from the tripadvisor site and was convinced to choose this over W Seminyak. I did not regret my choice. This is THE perfect place for a couple looking for privacy and to celebrate any special occasions. If you've explored the Amana website you will also realize that the design of the villas and the concept of the whole resort is specifically catered to couples. All their villas have high walls to keep out any peeping eyes and maintain privacy for the guests. I had stayed in the Waterfall Villa and was very happy with the villa. True that the design of the villa is not very practical in certain areas, but to me, it was the novelty of the design that attracted me to stay there in the first place. It was only for 4 days, so, I didn't really mind that I had to walk down to the bedroom and bathroom using an outdoor stairway. Having an outdoor bathtub was also a nice idea, although I would think that cleaning it would be quite a hassle due to the many bamboo leaves that keep falling into the tub.

It was really very interesting to have a mini waterfall directly facing the bedroom, and the sound of the waterfall is quite soothing during the day. You can also ask for it to be switched off if you don't like having it flowing and making too much noise, choice is yours. The villa is planted with copious amount of bamboo and it is also very soothing to hear the rustling of bamboo leaves when it gets windy. The entire resort is like a private sanctuary and you hardly see or hear the other guests. Villa staff were all friendly and helpful and are prepared to do what they need to, to make their guests happy. Breakfasts served at the villa was good too and was always more than enough for a morning meal.

And of course, the location is perfect too. Just tucked in a little off the main road on Oberoi and close to almost all the famous eateries and shopping areas in Seminyak. It's less than 100m behind Coco Mart and walking distance to Le Bistrot, Ultimo, Khaima, Chandi, The Junction and many excellent restaurants and spas.

As I was celebrating my birthday while staying at the villa, I was pleasantly surprised when the staff came in after breakfast on the day of my birthday with a small birthday cake, complete with a birthday song. That was a very nice touch. I was also thankful that the resort managed to arrange for a driver for me to get to the airport on the day of my departure when my own driver played me out and couldn't pick me up.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the resort and will definitely recommend this to anyone planning for a romantic couple escapade or a special celebration in Bali.

Dear Svitata,

Thank you very much for spending your birthday with us, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and we looking back with fond memories as well.

You are very right regarding our two story designs, it was all designed to accommodate for the magnificent waterfall within the villa. There are a few inconveniences of moving up and down, however, as you said, it is all worth it. This is a feature unique only to Amana.

Looking forward to seeing you again some day soon, and all the best to you and your family.

We had a wonderful birthday celebration holiday at the Amana. The service was spot-on. There are a few design problems (outdoor stairway, not enough seating upstairs), but the unique touches (pre-set music, supplied iPad, great service) more than made up for it. We always like to try new and different villas in Seminyak, and this was the best yet.

"Better late then never"

I stayed here with my wife at the end of last year, I'm a bit embarrassed its taken so long to give feedback.

Anyway, we stayed here for our honeymoon, the room was beautiful,clean, modern and well maintained. The location was perfect for us, close to shops or a nice walk/cheap cab ride to the beach or the many bars on offer.

The staff were amazing. We had a slight drama when we went to a money exchange about 800m down the road from the villas. The exchange place managed to scam us out of 150 USD, anyway point of my story is that I told our butler (Deewa). He did not hesitate for one second, he grabbed the security guard on duty and the 3 of us went back to the exchange place and managed to get all my money back. I have no doubt in my mind, that if not for the help of Deewa or the security guard our money was gone for good.

Lastly, we loved our private drop pool, the awesome a/c, complimentary breakfast and the little gifts we received each day. Across the board, the service was outstanding and again massive thank you to Deewa, what a legend. we can't wait to go back.

Dear Rhino1704,

Thank you very much for your stay last year. We do remember you guys because of the slight mishap with the money changers, we are glad that we were able to help resolve the situation. Dewa, your butler will be commended personally by me of your kind comments. Our team are constantly trained to go way and beyond the level of service generally expected of hotel staff. And it starts by treating our team in the same manner too.

Once again, thank you and we hope to see you again one day in sunny Bali !

This villa was perfect for our wedding anniversary as it's fully focussed around couples, providing so many more services for couples than most. The villa itself was beautiful, clean & modern with everything you could need and added bonus of lounge being able to close off doors to stop mozzies. A little pricey but in a perfect location of Seminyak and you get what you pay for. When booking I thought we were going into a two story waterfall villa which is showed in all the pictures as it doesn't really specify in the booking options but our smaller villa was still lovely & just enough space for the two of us. We will definitely be back and requesting the waterfall room next time.
