Amazing gardens, villa & studio. Steam room & jacuzzi in villa. Outside bathroom is beatiful. Butlers spray for mozzis & light coil. Spa treatments a real treat. Restaurant sensational. Healthy menu, very tastey. Service from Weedi (SPA) 1st class.

My husband and I have just had a wonderful 5 day stay in a spa villa. Amala is a small boutique hotel with excellent facilities, helpful, knowledgeable staff with great English and immaculate presentation. We were surprised to find the spa jacuzzi unheated (but it was a perfect plunge pool) and were delighted by the steam room in the shower. The bed was very comfortable (often in Asia can be very firm) and the room layout was well designed. The restaurant was very good and each of our meals was delicious. We found the location perfect for exploring Seminyak - easy 5 min walk to shops, quick taxi to beach or busy Petitenget but private and quiet amid its lush gardens. We recommend highly.

Room Tip: spa villa # 2 was amply spacious and the steam room is a treat.

Dear Belleviewer,
Thank you very much for spending the time to review the Amala. I am very happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us and that our services and facilities could reach your high expectations. With the increasing traffic situation around Bali, we are definitely very fortunate with our centered location, that our guest are able to reach shops, restaurant, cafes & the beach by walking is for sure a great advantage.
The Amala Team and myself we truly hope to welcome you back soon again to Bali, to pamper you again.
With best regards from Bali, Madlen Ernest

Beautiful place, and excellent service. Even though our flight was an hour late, driver was still there waiting patiently and had cold beverages waiting in the car.

Great privacy in the villas, and we thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast.I would stay again. It's a shame that the noise from the outside traffic disrupts the serenity. Taxis also find it difficult to locate the hotel since it's a boutique place.

Dear An9e,
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, the Amala team and myself are very happy to read that you have enjoyed our services and your stay with us here in Seminyak.
Thank you very much for your comment in regards to the Taxis Service in Seminyak, this is a great comment. We can very easy help other guests to avoid such inconveniences by recommending to our guests to use the famous Bali Deli Supermarket, which is just located opposite our Resort, as an orientation point.
Feedback is very important to us in order to keep improving our services, once again thank you very much.
With best regards from Bali

The Amala went out of their way to make us feel special from the moment we submitted our reservation request. Kaeko was ever so responsive and thoughtful in advising us on our itinerary, providing us with practical and insightful tips! The team was never without a smile and always went above and beyond to ensure our stay with them to be special and worry-free. They also surprised me with a beautiful strawberry tart and a cheerful birthday song on my birthday! We stayed at the 3-room Amala Residence and it was perfect for a travel pack of three couples. The ensuites rooms are equally spacious and the open common area was wonderful to lounge in. We were so appreciative that the attentive staff made sure we never run out of icy cold drinks. Also, if we had known that the villa kitchen is SO well equipped, we would've stayed in for a home cooked meal! Then again, the food at Amala is already fantastic, why bother :)

in summary, the service was beyond fabulous, the facilities were immaculate, the food was delicious. the only glitch: we didn't stay longer.

We were so pleased with our stay at the Amala. The service was fantastic....very personal and professional. We stayed in the three bedroom villa and it was amazing. It is quiet and private. The villa itself was very clean and well-maintained and in a gorgeous setting. The food at this property is also excellent. I can't say anything more than has already been mentioned by other reviewers... It is fabulous. Stay here- you won't be disappointed.

I was after a place that offered rest and relaxation, a quiet few days away from a busy working week. The Amala was perfect! Staff treated me like family and the service was exceptional. Being a female on my own I felt safe and no request was too much trouble, the perfect place to stay if you are after a peaceful relaxing stay in the busy area of Seminyak. Only a short cheap taxi fare to all major hot spots of Seminyak. Perfect for couples, honeymooners and solo travelers looking for a hideaway but without being too far from the main attractions. Oh and the Banana pancakes were to die for!

We have just had 4 amazing nights at the Amala with Madlen and her team of beautiful people. Nothing is a bother for them and they go above and beyond to make everyones holiday a special experience. The spa treatments , breakfasts and evening meals are all superb. Gede even assisted us in getting our money back from a corrupt money changer which we are sure is not part of his job but only too happy to help. Thanks again, Gede! We can't wait for our next visit .

Room Tip: The pool villas are amazing
