“Best accommodation in Amed area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 5 nights in Villa 9 right on the beach with our own plunge pool, very relaxing . The resturant was overlooking the pool and the beach, a very tranquil setting. Service and food both excellent .
Amed is not a real touristy area, the villages around very original and unaffected , some other good resturants in the area within walking distance. The owners are nice people and take an interest in all their guests which impressed us
If we went back to Amed we would stay here again

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

Australian Travellers looking for 'The Old Bali' take note.....
Upon arrival the understated yet elegant entrance, whilst wonderful, did not really prepare us for what lay behind those walls. The welcome drink, and the staff, warm and friendly immediately. Then the vision of the exquisitely planned and maintained resort. O.M.G.!!! A phrase used daily many times during our stay.

As it turned out, we were the only guests there for our booked time of 6 days/nights...Our own private beachfront paradise complete with specially hand picked and well trained staff, although they all felt like friends just after 24 hours. Many before us have spoken of Villa 9 and 10, and yes if you can do it....do it! But equally the other accommodation options, (we had a peek) will not disappoint. In fact they were cleaned, dusted and aired each day, although no other guests were booked in.

Our Swiss hosts, Anna and Orlando,.......2 gloriously special people...... with a joint vision to create something really special.......and WOW! they sure have. We all enjoyed our daily chats, and each improved our German, Swiss, English and Balinese knowledge and language skills.

Unfortunately 2 members of our group were involved in a serious accident, outside of the resort, resulting in ambulance transport and eventual hospitalisation in Kuta, 2 days short of our original booking. Anna and Orlando and the staff stepped up voluntarily and did all they could to comfort and expedite any requests of medical supplies, transport etc. This is how caring they are.

We will be back, and probably around the same time of year...quieter, more personal and with my shouting from every roof top, hopefully more discerning Aussies will make the effort to enjoy what East Bali has to offer.

What an find! Thank you to all Trip Advisor contributors, that convinced our party of 2 middle aged couples to book.

We loved our stay at the pretty and peaceful Palm Gardens. We liked the fact that the Amed area was very undiscovered and non-touristy; a gentle walk beyond Palm Gardens revealed a very typical Balinese village life with the black pigs in mud, local people going about their daily business, no taxis or men touting for transport - no trendy shops for tourists. It is a snorkelling not a shopping destination.
Orlando and Annie were very warm, friendly, helpful, hospitable and interesting hosts. Excellent.
Everything about this architecturally amazing boutique resort was impeccable.
I loved Annie's taste - the fantastic paintings, the pearly lamps, the golden Balinese dancers on the bathroom walls (I bought a couple home with me - a lovely memory on my back verandah) - the interior décor was amazing.
I felt at times as if we were personal guests staying in a beautiful private home.
I liked looking out at the papaya trees from the outdoor bathroom in the villa with the pool on the beachfront. The tropical gardens were beautiful.
The pools were perfect. The staff were very pleasant - helpful, nothing was a problem.
The food was delicious; it was actually really nice to enjoy some European food after three weeks in Bali.
I was ready for a change.
I loved the Cordon Bleu chicken - also the potato pancake, roestri?
My husband had the chicken in the pineapple three days in a row!
I loved the papaya and lime juices, also the luscious warm chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream.
The location on the beach was good.
We loved the fact you could 'hot' foot (very hot black sands) down to the water and go snorkelling directly off the beach. There was really no need at all for a boat trip to the Coral Gardens, although the scenery from the ocean of the coast and hills was lovely.
I think I will bring my own snorkel and goggles when I next visit Palm Gardens at Amed. It did seem to take ages to get a decent set by way of the chap on the beach - but no drama, it was eventually okay.
The other thing that was exceptionally lovely was being permitted to check out of our room late in the day given the fact our flight to Australia was not until midnight.
It made such a difference to be able to extend our holiday, to enjoy our villa and the resort facilities until the end of the day. Many thanks Annie and Orlando for your kindness. We both hope plan to return sooner than later to Palm Gardens at Amed. Our stay was remarkable for all the right reasons.

This is a small, clean, high spec resort. The villas are lovely and the 'outside' bathroom was an unusual novel touch giving a wonderful fresh feel (although the shower was a bit low pressure). Bathroom fittings were all exquisite and very high quality, like all of the decor in the resort. The (black volcanic) beach is almost part of the resort and a few swim strokes into the sea takes you over a beautiful live coral reef full of colour, texture and tropical fish. It felt really safe snorkelling because of being in a bay; it was flat calm with no current.
The food was fresh, very well prepared, very reasonably priced and served by friendly and attentive staff in the outside restaurant (take mozzie spray with you). Breakfast is included and you can also go for half or full board if you like. I chose only breakfast, thinking we would eat out in other restaurants but in fact there are none close enough to get to without transport so we ended up eating nearly all our meals at the resort.
We hired motorbikes on one of the days which, although out of our comfort zone to begin with, turned out to be a great way to get to other beaches, was fun and we got a chance to eat out.
On the down side the road behind the resort was quite noisy and the cockerel woke us up at 5.30 each morning followed by some sort of religious call to prayer with drums, chanting etc. Ear plugs are a good idea. Also there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room (tricky if you like to drink a lot of tea throughout the day) although a big pot of (delicious) ginger tea from the kitchen is only Au$2.
30% deposit is expected prior to arrival and the rest can be paid on arrival (even though it is written as 'by arrival' on the invoice which I took to mean before arrival). I also found it a bit tricky to get prices as they were not available through the tripadvisor site. We paid around Au$150 per night for a villa (not beachside and no plunge pool; they were about Au$220) in low season (Feb 2014).
The trip from the airport took over 3 hours from the airport and cost about Au$82 each way, organised through the resort. Quite a windy road for the last half, worth taking a travel sickness pill if you get carsick.
Overall we loved the resort and found the quality of everything to be exceptionally high and the staff excellent.

Great place to stay with direct access to beach. The beach is covered in fishermen boats but it just adds to the traditional aspect of Amed. Great fish to look at just 1 min swim away. It's worth renting scooters which you can do at the hotel for less than a £1 day to go for lunch around and explore the area which according to my girlfriend (and she said it about 20 times) look just like Lost.
Back on the hotel, there were 6 of us staying in 2 villas and one bungalow and they were all of a high standard. The swimming pool is definitely great and it was very quiet during our stay over Christmas. The food in the restaurant is good but the menu is not too extensive so it can get a bit boring after a couple of days hence the scooters. I would definitely recommend booking the catch of the day for dinner; we had grilled red snapper and it was really good. You have to book the day before though. Service from reception was impeccable and they did a good job of getting us new transportation when the one we had arranged stood us up on departure day. My parents used the Spa and were very happy of their massages although the prices are considerably more expensive than in Ubud. That's the price of isolation I think since prices were similar for treatments in Munduk.
In summary a wonderful 3 nights at Palm Garden Amed Beach Resort and Spa. Will definitely return.

This 10 roomed boutique hotel offers a quiet, relaxing stay in a charming, local village, worlds away from the tourist dominated areas in the south west of Bali. We stayed here for 5 nights in late October/early November.
The design of the accommodation is influenced by local architecture and the bungalows are well equipped and have large open air bathrooms.
The restaurant serves freshly prepared, well presented food and super fruit juices and is next to the pool.
The hotel is right next to the beach where the local fishing boats launch in the early hours and return around 6.30 am. It is interesting to watch the catch landed and sorted. Snorkelling is very good from the beach in front of the hotel and trips can be arranged to other excellent diving sites.

It was a very quiet resort next to the beach with black sand. Amed isn't as touristical as Kuta or Legian what we prefered. The life in Amed represents the right life in Bali not the touristic place like Kuta.
A corall reef is next to the beach which is very beautiful. The food was amazing, the staff very kind and the hole resort is very clean. All things are lovely placed. The massage & pedicure was enjoyable. Daytrips to Ubud, etc. available.

Room Tip: Villa was such a nice room with open showers and beautiful bathroom
