“beautiful mini-resort in Bali”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

What sets Amori apart is the service - just top notch, from the owner's response time to the warmth and kindness of the entire staff team. Everyone knew our name from the first day and bent over backwards to make sure our stay was as enjoyable as possible.

The villa is located about 10min from Ubud center, and the complimentary car shuttle is convenient. It's also easy to rent a moto for the day (about $6) and scoot around town - the staff will set everything up for you if you ask.

Dont' come here expecting any kind of "resort" - it's NOT a resort. It's a peaceful retreat, a home away from home.

Room Tip: Valley view room is AMAZING.

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

Room Tip: There are 5 villas to choose from, we stayed in Valley View but had a tour through all 5 and each ha...

I stayed at amori with two collegues. Trip was business but we decided to extend two days
to enjoy Bali. Pick up at airport was arranged and welcome at villa was excellent. We could have a late meal prepared by the staff. Rooms are very tastefull and the whole layout is breathtaking.
Piece the résistance is the infinity pool overlooking the valley. On the whole the atmosfere is like a private home with staff looking after you personally. Activites are arranged effortless. Meals are prepared considering personal wishes. The villa is optimal for unwinding.

Room Tip: Ask for poolside top villa.

On our recent trip to Bali, we decided that we wanted to spend a couple of days in Ubud. After reading the TripAdvisor reviews, we decided on Amori Villa. We were not disappointed and had a truly wonderful time during our stay. The staff was excellent and we were lucky enough to also be there when the owners, Rick & Peta, were on property. The only way I can explain it was to say it was like staying with family - family that happen to live in one of the most beautiful locations in the world in a stunning villa with an infinity pool overlooking a lush valley. Rick & Peta were amazing hosts - engaging, welcoming and really intent on making sure you have the best stay possible. We loved the Valleyview suite, the grounds and pool were gorgeous, and the food deliciously prepared. It really was an all-around outstanding stay.

My husband and me stayed at Amori Villas for 2 nights and we enjoyed every minute! The lovely staff, always ready to help and visible all the time, great new Manager who is a real hospitality professional and excellent food (if you stay there, you MUST try at least one dinner, we had some world class food there). The room was spacious and I loved to take a bath in their gigantic bath tube. It feels like you are at home, open visible private-alike kitchen and probably the best infinity pool we have so far seen in all South East Asia!!! It's a stunner! Drive to Ubud takes about 5 Minutes, too long for walking, but therefore you are in a quite piece of heaven. Thanks to the entire team of Amori Villa, we will certainly be back and recommend you to our friends and families!

After reading the website, all these glorious reviews and great location it was really a shock when we finally arrived. Its a good 15 min drive to ubud, located in a suburb outside main Ubud, too hilly and hot to walk so your always reliant on a driver, the place just doesn't feel boutique but kinda like you are in someone's place who has added on units that look out to a pretty average valley. At $300 a night it is really overpriced for Bali. Wouldn't recommend (and yes we are fussy, but our work/hobby entails travelling so we love seeking hotel experiences.)
