“Serene Villa by the Sea”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Wow! What an amazing place to stay! I booked for 3 nights and was sad to leave. I had a driver that took me from Ubud to Amed. As we entered the villa and walked down the stairs he said "Wow! This is a nice place.Best in Amed!" I should have k own at that moment that O was going to love it here. At the end of the entry path the villa opens to a large garden with a pool overlooking the sea. The owner showed me to my room and Wayan brought me a welcome fruit juice. The hospitality and service were outstanding. I was well cared for during my stay.
Wayan cooks all the meals and made some delicious food. I ate at the hotel every evening. Yummy! She arranged a scooter for me and gave me directions to snorkeling and an ATM. The owner, Amir, makes certain his guests needs are met. He was doing construction on 2 additional rooms and made certain the men kept the noise to a minimum. He even blocked all rooms from reservations for the next 3 nights so the loud/noisy work would not disrupt his guests. That is very uncommon in tourist areas. Amir puts his guests first and it is evident the minute you step into his villa.
Stay at Villa Sky Dancer and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and cool sea breezes. You will not regret it. My only suggestion is that you bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper- the neighbor's chickens crow at dawn. If you are awake, get up and enjoy the beautiful sunrise and take a nap latter.
PS- ask for room #4 it had an amazing view and a beautiful bamboo ceiling.

we got her by hazard as our reserved hotel couldn't provide our room.
must admit: lucky us!

Villa Sky Dancers paid out to be the best place in Amed as its a new built private villa with actually only three rooms and beautiful pool.

the whole facility is very well managed and maintained in a top status, spotlessly clean!

we enjoyed a very warm and friendly service by the owner himself and his excellent staff.

we were treated as V.I.P.s from the very beginning: welcome drink on our sea view terrace, individually prepared meals on the roof terrace in the evenings (you choose your favorit dish in the morning, then the chef is buying evth. freh on the market or by the fishermen in the neighbourhood!) and also a very good breakfast whereever you want (room terrace(s), roof terrace, salon area inbetween,...).

rent a scooter: ask the owner (50.000 IDR)
need laundry: ask the owner (best price!)
wanna go snorkeling: ask the owner
wanna go out with the fishermen for sunrise or sunset: ...guess what? of course the owner has a buddy providing you this experience!

and if you just wanna enjoy yourself by the pool or beach: don't hesitate as they are leaving you alone as you like it!

therefore: book immediately to get a perfect Amed experience!

Villa Sky Dancer is a new private villa located 10 minutes drive from Amed. Arrival starts with a walk down well-manicured garden stairs. Once at the bottom, the Bali Sea is the first thing you will see. The rooms are all clean, and have modern bathrooms, beds with mosquito netting, and all-around spectacular views of the grounds, beach, fishing boats and sea. Each room has a private patio, great for breakfast or just relaxing. The overflowing pool steps away from the sea, and has both deep and shallow areas. Dinner on the second floor patio is quite romantic, and the staff are more than prepared to accommodate any meal. In fact, the owner is quite a cook. The Villa can also help arrange diving through Eurodive (a local PADI dive shop).

Part of the villa's charm is that it is away from the hustle of Amed. If you have a motorbike or scooter, you will find it quite easy to get around. If not, transportation requires a bit more planning as the villa does not provide transport (though they can arrange transport through local contacts). The villa has internet access though a PC in the lobby just in case you feel the urge to check email. WiFi is not yet available, but hopefully soon will be. There is no cellular phone reception.

Room Tip: Each room has a minibar stocked with goodies in case you get the munchies.
