Amadea Resort & Villas
Ranked #34 of 148 Hotels in Seminyak
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Just stayed at Amadea resort. Booking made through Asiarooms..only standard twin available online..but on arrival late evening..receptionist did the usual upsell to a deluxe which was US$15 extra..fine..On opening door to room noticed air was not cold at all. Usually this is due to the filters on the split system not being cleaned..maintenance was called and yes..both filters were black...both maintenance boys laughed..always insist that the filters be cleaned!!!! As with most new build "resort" hotels in Bali they look great on the outside for a"minute" then fall into disrepair very quickly. Combination bath/shower did not work, water would not drain, on removal of the plunger it was covered in matted hair (quite disgusting). Restaurant/bistro connected to property was good. Breakfast presentation good and quality of food also good.
The rooms are centered around the hotel pool which by Australian standards anyway would be classed as a motel.There is no privacy if you wished to sit on your front patio. The gardens were immaculate
I would stay again now that I know what to expect..the rate was inexpensive US$115 plus the 17% tax plus the US$15 upgrade

Room Tip: If possible check the room before accepting it..air, bathroom, etc..otherwise you waste time getting...

We booked an excellent deal through wotif and stayed in one of their roof top villas - which meant we had a huge outdoor area (~150 sqm) with private outdoor double sunbed, garden and a beautiful spacious villa. We watched fireworks from our balcony every night.

The staff were really friendly and helpful, with a good day spa.

Communal pool and outdoor bar area was relaxing most days - a couple of days there were families (with loud, noisy kids) which broke my serenity but that was a minor issue.

It is a beautiful villa in seminyak - hidden in a busy shopping street. It is a 10 minute walk from the beach however.

Room Tip: I would choose the rooftop villa again if I returned - it is 3 times the size of the standard rooms...

This is a great hotel in a great location near a lot of very nice restaurants and boutique shopping. Can walk every where you need too from here. We stayed in a pool terrace room which was new, modern and comfortable. I think the standard rooms would be just as nice. The villas if you had a large group look amazing and have private pools. The hotel pools are very good are warm as they get a lot of sun. We spent a lot of time in them. Staff are friendly and accommodating. The hotel restaurant out the front is pretty good and reasonably priced. We had the lomi lomi massage at the hotel spa and it was very good. The best we had in Bali for the price. The hotel rooms are about 150m from the street but there is a buggy to shuttle you to/from if needed and being setback from street it is quiet. I only had one negative which is that our room wasn't ready when we arrived and we had to wait over 2 hours to check in.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. Go with a villa if you have a group or family.

the location is in the heart of Seminyak so if you like the buzz etc you will love it!!
It is a very short ride from the Legian and other main things to do (like siting and drinking at the beach :))
The hotel is really clean - we were upgraded to a deluxe pool room and to be honest it was very nice!
The staff was extremely helpful and smiley!
The wifi is not free in the room which is a shame but only in the lobby. Breakfast is good but lacking of banana pancakes :))

Amadea, Seminyak is an excellent place to stay. I have been to Bali a few times, and the staff are by far the nicest bunch of people I have met in Indonesia. Excellent location. They could upgrade the facilities in the breakfast area, but it is very a minor point, considering the overall experience. Make sure you try this place.

Room Tip: Ask for the side pool rooms

This is a new hotel. It looks nice. We liked the feel. Comfortable. I thought it was a bit too far from the beach. For dinners etc. it is okay, although we had our est food in Legian (value for money too). People are friendly in the hotel. On arrival we upgraded our room to a room on the first floor with a view on the bigger pool. The room we would have gotten was on the groundfloor next to the parking spot of the golf cars, and no privacy on terrace. Dark room too. Not pleasant. Make sure when you book a room you don't end up in that room. First floor rooms are better if you ask me, more privacy,see also other reviews.
Our new room was nice. Small issues: big bathroom but lots of unusuable space. Didnt like the showercurtain rail. It was taped together and when we pulled the curtain to close it the whole rail came down over and over again. Housekeeping really slow and one day he just informed us his shift was over and if we wanted to have our room cleaned we had to call reception. Not a good idea!
we always were able to get some sunloungers. For us not a big deal.
We enjoyed the breakfast. Enough variety. We were early most days and all food was fresh and each day a bit different.
Roomservice from the bistro was average. But then again you pay for convenience and get average food. Not bad either.

We stayed two weeks. I prefer Legian location. In general: i was shocked by the state of the beach. Been to Bali many times but the beach from Seminyak to Kuta was absolutely dirty. Filled with rubbish and plastic. Three years ago it was definitely better.

The pressure on the ecosystem is too high i guess and they are still building more hotels and huge ones too. For nice beaches try the other side of the island. You wont be disappointed.
Amadea is a nice place but they have to improve housekeeping and maintenance.

Dear ronnie66,

We are very delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay at Amadea. Our apology for the un-pleasant experience you received from our Housekeeping team. It is not our standard and have taken necessary action for this kind of attitude.

We also received many comments from other guest about the quality of the shower rail therefore it will be changed this month for all rooms.

During this time of the year when the wind coming from west, Bali faces problems with rubbish stranded on our beach. We have seen the government had put some efforts there but it is not enough. We agree with you that the pressure on the ecosystem is too high. Within our reach, we at the hotel have taken several eco-friendly initiatives to keep this island sustainable. We thanked our guests for participating in those efforts.

We look forward to serve you again soon.

Cheers,
Wayan Warta

We (me & wife, my sister & friend) checked into Amadea on X'mas day and left on New Year's eve. We stayed in the hotel rooms for the initial few days and moved to the 2-bedroom villa for the final two nights.

My superior room was spacious and had the basic amenities that you would expect for a decent hotel. The bed was clean and comfortable. No tub in the bathroom but toilet bowl came with a bidet (nice!). Other pluses include the all in one alarm clock with radio and iPhone/iPod dock which can be used to charge your iPhone; and the universal adapter power outlet. We were blessed with a relatively incident-free stay with no major issues except for a housekeeping hiccup where the complimentary bottled water and face towels were not replenished on one of the days. But the same could not be said for my sis & friend. Read on.

My sis & friend booked themselves into a deluxe room on the ground floor facing the main pool which was just steps away. On the first night, the air-con broke down at around 1.30am and it took the hotel staff an hour or so to repair it. So sis & friend retired to bed at 3am, only to be awaken by the staff's call to check if the air-con was working fine. Bad start to a vacation. The next day, their shower curtain rod was broken and the hotel staff had to be called in again. Took them quite a while but it was fixed eventually. You wouldn't normally expect such maintenance issues with a newly open hotel.

As for the 2-bedroom villa, I have only good things to say. The two storey villa was beautifully furnished and fully air-conditioned. You can dive into the villa pool directly from the ground level bedroom, pretty cool, isn't it? On the opposite end of the pool is the roomy main lounge, dining area and well-equipped kitchenette. Level two is where you find the other bedroom and a small family lounge area which can be converted into another bedroom (It has sofa bed). The en suite open-concept bathrooms were as huge as the bedrooms. Strangely, the toilet bowls do not have bidets like those in the hotel rooms. A hot and cold water dispenser was provided in the kitchenette. The 1.3m deep pool was of a decent size for a relaxing dip as well as for laps. Free wifi was available in the form of usage vouchers. Overall, it was a luxurious and enjoyable villa stay.

As many reviewers have pointed out, Amadea is excellently situated along Seminyak's shopping and restaurant strip, it cannot get more convenient. No worries about the street noise permeating in as the rooms are buffered by a long open corridor from the concierge area, leading to the front desk/reception and lobby. Guests can use the buggy service to commute between these two areas. All the villas are positioned on one side of the corridor. Our villa, the Bayu, was the closest to the concierge and the main street but it was quiet and peaceful.

Daily breakfast provided by the Batu Kali Bistro was ok, quality and variety wise. But it would be a bonus if the hotel could serve the breakfast in the villa.

The service, in general, was good. The staff were friendly and polite. In particular, the housekeeping was efficient in attending to our requests. The only gripe I have would be the front desk staff. I wish they can be more focused when serving guests. On several occasions, while I was being attended to by a staff, she would suddenly walk off to serve another guest, leaving me to wait for the next available staff to continue from where we left off.

To sum up, the short getaway in Amadea was pleasant despite the minor dampers.
