WOW!! Located at the virtually undeveloped eastern end of the Amed Coast, Eka Purnama is situated on a large piece of hillside land amid an attractive and well maintained garden. There are great views of the ocean and/or hinterland from just about everywhere on the property, which has 4 clean and cosy chalets; a well appointed family villa, and a good restaurant. I absolutely love the beauty and tranquility of this part of the Amed Coast, and Eka Purnama is in a most picturesque setting.
The location itself is good enough, but what made my stay of 6 nights unforgettable was the hospitality of the family who own and operate the guesthouse. George, Iluh and Yona treated me like a long-time family friend, with invitations to a religious ceremony and a wedding; a visit to some of Iluh’s family; good conversation; nightly card games, and some real home-style Balinese meals. Their staff were also very friendly, particularly Wayan, who took me to visit his family at their home in a small village in the valley.
Although Eka Purnama costs more than I- a single traveller- am normally prepared to pay in Bali, I am very glad I decided to go there…it was the best guesthouse experience I have had in all of my extensive travels over the past 20 years.
