We stayed in this place for 2 nights. As our check out time grew nearer the owner of the place became more and more difficult with matters making the remaining time very uncomfortable for the group of three of us (2 female 1 male).
Rooms were fine but filled with ants. Outside pool and location was OK but there is other places for better prices with same services nearer to Amed beach.
They promised all sort of stuff to include within the accommodation price upon our arrival such as welcoming drinks and free transport to town.
When we visited with the owner in Amed's town center he started off by saying that he wants to be with us while we shopped. He was looking into the price tags of our purchases and all the time tried to hurry as even though he started our trip saying there is no hurry.
On the other day we visited the owners home village because he insisted and as a good sports and willing to learn new things we went. We ended up being middle of forest almost and people were not too happy to see us there. We ended up staying there one hour, unable to leave even though we asked to. The owner started to shout and yell to his wife and we had to witness this domestic argument. It was scary to be honest.
After that only thing on our mind was to check out on the following morning. We had planned on staying for more but as everything were quite horrible atmosphere wise we were happy to move out and find different accommodation.
As we checked out from Rising Star of course those previously promised things were not included in the price and we ended up paying double compared to other accommodation providers fees to get out of Rising Star.
Later on our stay we heard from the locals that within the community the owner of Rising Star is not liked. Locals characterized the man heartless and cold person who just tries to squeeze money out of people.
Rising Star, Amed Bali was an awful experience and not recommended at all.
