I know some of you will read this reveiw and think it is too good to be true but believe us from the moment you step outside your chauffeur driven limousine and meet the team at Amori you will forget about any of the stresses, issues, dramas that you may have left behind.
After a gap of some 25 years since our last visit to Bali we came to Amori, and it was an expression of love we felt from the very beginning of our holiday. The greeness of the gardens and the beautiful wood features and doors are the first features to hit the eye, then there is the delightful team of mainly local residents who will look after you and your every need. For us the welcome drink "Amori Sensation" was to become our most requested item even topping a Bintang beer or the gingermint honey tea. To enjoy this refreshing drink whilst sitting in deep, comfy couches overlooking a seemingly endless sea of green vegetation with the softest of breezes and at the centre an infinity pool which sparkles like an aquamarine was breathtaking.
The invitation to then retire to our villa, in our case "Valley View", was almost secondary as we could easily have spent the rest of our next 7 days right where were. But move we did only to be taken aback yet again. The villa is huge, private deck, king size bed which has the softest linen and comfortable matress and pillows. There is oodles of wardrobe space. The piece de resistance has to be the bathroom with its deep, luxurious bath and outdoor shower which is totally private to all except for the goldfish which swim in the pond alongside you while you shower . The views from the villa were superb and if you like taking photographs you will not be disappointed; there are any number of possibilities right from you own villa!!!
The front of house team are friendly, attentive and always able to help with any enquiry. The range of food that is available seemed endless and breakfast was a real highlight. A daily massage was a real indulgence and something that I pine for now I am back home and up to my ears with the pressure of deadlines and budgets.
We also did some great outdoor activities including bike riding off Kitamani - a must do; early sunrise walk up Mt Batur - a 3am start but then how often do you get to walk up a volcano and along the rim. The later experience will go down as one of my top ten achievments. Lunchin a rice paddy field and a 6am tour of the local market with all of its food, herb, spice and flower offerings.
Amori - the dream child of Rick and Peta Dunn is so much more than a beautiful villa in Ubud, Bali or a holiday of R & R - one certainly senses and feels the love that they have for their dream come through in every sense, be it the art work , the furnishings, the tours they suggest, the time they take to talk and get to know you or just the fact that they ensure you have peace and recovery time. No wonder by the end of our 7 days we were trying to work out how soon we could return and what Christmas year we could bring all of our family and their children to visit and experience " AmorI" Susan and Richard
