“A hidden gem”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We have stayed here the last 3 years in the family bungalow out front,it always did the job but was getting a bit titred.Fast forward to 2012 and the bathrooms in the family bungalows,not sure about the rest, have all been renovated and are just perfect and the rooms are great as well.
Keep in mind this is not 5 star luxury but its more than adequate for most travellers.
The pool is not large but its never busy either and there is a nice beach to swim off or snorkel to enjoy the coral and the fish that live there.The grounds are lovely and the staff friendly pls massages are great at a reasonable price.
Breakfast is ok and when we have decided to have dinner there the food was fine.
Cant wait to get back next year!!

We stumbled across this accomodation by chance, and thank goodness! We initially made a booking to stay with another hotel in Amed for 5 nights, and despite a very hefty price tag we decided to move (the room to accomodate 2 adults, 2 kids was tiny, and the location not desirable).

We were told about HPC by dutch family that we met on Lembongan island and luckily were able to secure a family villa for the remainder of our stay. It was much cheaper than our previous accomodation, and the rooms, gardens, etc beautiful. There was heaps of room for the kids, our villa overlooked the pool and had its on verandah/deck with sun lounges etc. My favourite was the huge outdoor bathroom with two showers, and the STONE BATH set upon white pebbles.... Our kids also loved the brand new multi-function room, that was air-conditioned and overlooked the beach. At night they watched movies in this area, whilst my husband and myself had drinks in the reataurant that sat directly opposite it. Very relaxing and easy.

The food (huge menu of western and asian food) and beverages at HPC were also affordable, which meant you didn't feel you had to shop outside. Although it is situated right on Lipa beach that has numerous local shops and local restaurants.

The beach is black sand, and the hotel is situated right on it. Hire a snorkel and you can see great fish and coral 3 metres from the shore line. The hotel can also organise more extensive snorkeling and dive trips by boat.

Very good breakfast included in the price. Fresh fruit juices, fruit platter, eggs/toast, panckaes or asian style noodles/rice. I could go on forever, as it was a great stay and we were just so grateful we were able to change to this accomodation. Would be also good for couples.

Bungalows in the middle of a garden with bathrooms open to the sky. Nothing like looking at the mountains and palm trees when you are having your shower!
Restaurant by the see. Swimming pool ok. If you like snorkeling, lovely fishes and corals. Fishermen can bring you for a trip or organize a barbecue on the beach with the fish of the day for very reasonable price.

Room Tip: try to get the family bungalows if you are 4! They are booked very early in advance.

Hidden Paradise is a nice hotel with the good location around Amed.
The garden so green, the morning beach shines like gold.
Easy to find skin diving spot.
A bit far from the Denpasar.
Next time back to Bali will comeback to Hidden Paradise

Stayed in a cottage number 13. Lovely large clean rooms and enjoyed the partly open air bathrooms. Beautiful gardens and pool area. Enjoyed the food in the restaurant and had lovely breakfasts. Wish the gorgeous tropical pool area has areas for having loungers around it as not conducive to spending much time in it and not fussed on lying on the loungers in front of the restaurant. Black sand beach-very pretty (though not as nice as NZ beaches) but wow, snorkelling was great. Took our own gear but can hire it and snorkelled off beach at other end of beach about 20m out to 60m and really impressed with the colourful coral and number of fish! Worked out to about $105NZ/night. If you value sleep ins Amed is not the place for you as the local roosters start at 0430hrs and local ceremonies/singing all night while we were there. Wouldn't stop us from returning though as the snorkelling here and on the Liberty Wreck in Tulamben was outstanding and an afternoon sleep makes up for the early morning wake up call.....Recommend Sails Restaurant-will pick you up from Hotel if required.

Room Tip: If you don't mind spending more-get a family room with an outdoor bath and a view of the pool an...

Nice cottages close to the beach
It is nice
No real swimming pool but ok for kids
Directly on the beach

Rooms are extremely disappointing but the semi outdoor bathroom that is nice

Service is terrible
Air con would not run or never enough to cool down the bungalow so night was warm

This is a very pleasant resort on a very pretty beach.

The Cottages are dotted around a beautiful garden. They are very comfortable with zircon and bathrooms open to the sky which I really like. There are cottages for couples and family ones, however as another reviewer said the family ones have all of the beds in one room, which does not give parents much privacy. We ended up taking two couples cottages for us and our two boys and that worked out well.

The resort is right on the beach with is good for swimming and snorkeling. It was a bit rocky just in front of the resort while we were there, but that was probably the season... it was only 30m or so to a full sang part. The resort also has a large pool which the boys lived in.

Snorkelling boat trips and massages can be arranged on the beach, and the resort is linked to a good scuba dive operator.

The food in the resort is good, but if you want variety there are a lot of alternatives within walking distance.

Room Tip: You get to enjoy the roosters from all of the rooms
