“Great location, noisy staff.”
Reviewed December 3, 2010

Had booked sea facing room but was given pool facing room next to restaurant. The owners were away and the staff hung around restaurant all day chattering noisily. This distracted from the tranquility of an otherwise perfect setting.

No other complaints.

My advice would be to book a room as far from the restaurant as possible.

We stayed 2 weeks in 2009 and 2 weeks in 2010 at Kembali Beach Bungalows. The location is fabulous. Beachfront with views of the vulcano, Mount Agung. Local snorkeling is very good. Lovely gardens surround the bungalows. The bungalows are spaced far enough apart for a pleasant sense of privacy, while the pool and dining area provide the opportunity for chats with other guests if desired.
The staff is friendly, cheerful and helpful. We had numerous short interesting conversations, which we initiated, with members of the staff about local life and things to do in the region.
The rooms are very clean. The bungalows are nicely constructed and the air conditioning works well. The breakfast, which is included in the price, is amazing. Well prepared pancakes, fruit salad, coffee, tea, etc.
Ketut, one of the drivers, speaks English well. He is a very good driver and quite knowledgable and eloquent about Bali and Balinese life.
We will certainly return to Kembali when we have the chance.

We want to tell you about our recent visit to Kembali Beach Bungalows (4 nights).

Ketut picked us up at Padang Bai; he was friendly, reliable and we used his services throughout our stay.

The bungalow was clean, quiet and spacious although there were mosquitoes in the open bathroom; we found the breakfast tasty.

Each staff member repeatedly asked us about 'transfer' or 'massage' no matter what time of day or night or, if we had just returned with our snorkelling equipment still on. This became tedious very rapidly; it is one thing to be solicited on the streets but to have employees follow you to your veranda and continue to ask 'why no massage' was very annoying.

Since credit cards are not accepted at checkout, we had adequate cash, but required 76000Rp in change. At checkout in the bar, the woman said she didn't have any change and stood and stared at me. I waited and when she made no move to get some change, I asked again for my change; she reluctantly pulled out a basket of money and put 50000Rp on the counter, saying 'is this OK?' I said 'No, I want the rest of my change" and she again stood silent and staring for a bit, and finally dug 20000Rp out from under the bar. Again silent and staring she waited and I said I still wanted the rest of my change. She brought out the remaining 6000Rp and tossed it on the counter. I said to her that I only tip when I want to, not when forced to. I found her behaviour and attitude very distasteful, never mind dishonest! It was my observation that she was very comfortable with her behaviour and my feeling was that this was not the first time she had done this to a customer. For us, the amount of money doesn't matter; it is the blatant dishonesty that is alarming.

Unfortunately, this attempted scam has tainted our memories of Kembali Beach Bungalows despite the attractive accommodations, garden and pool we won't be returning.

This was our second time staying at Kembali and we will be back again! Love it there. The bungalows are clean, modern, relaxing and have everything you need.

The pool and gardens just add to the atmosphere of the place and with some snorkeling right on your doorstep it is the perfect place to stay in Amed.

We were lucky enough to swim with dolphins right out the front of the bungalows. The dolphins were swimming up and down the bay all day, so we swam out and managed to intercept them and spent a few precious minutes with them. Truly magical and just adds to the essence of Kembali.

The main downside is the food choice, it is all bread and pancakes and no protein, but there are some excellent restaurants in walking distances that serve fresh fish.

Another thing that annoyed us slightly was the fishing trip we went on with one of the staff. He didn't have any fishing tackle and when he finally put a line into the water, he was very reluctant to let us use it. Bit weird but we saw dolphins again so that made the trip worth while.

This is a wonderful place to stay - the rooms are extremely clean and although there were no real frills, they were EXCELLENT value for money. The breakfast was included in the cost and was fresh and really varied. We ate ours looking out to sea each morning! The bathroom is fantastic - open ceilings and pebbled floors, a really tropical experience! Right outside the bunalows (which face onto the beach) there is a coral reef - you can see fish and coral just one metre away from the shore at high tide, making this place even more special. Snorkelling and diving is everywhere in Amed, which is why many people visit. There isn't really anything to do in Amed in the evenings - the roads are very dark outside the village and so you need a torch or moped to venture away from the immediate area around Kembali Bungalows. However, there are about 5 restaurants that provide evening meals within the immediate area - the best by far is the 3 brothers restaurant, excellent food and so cheap. Amed is a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and I was sorry to leave. I really hope to return very soon!
