“Not as good as it could be”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

The location is excellent and the villas are nice. But although the stuff was very friendly and tried to help, they sometimes seemed overstrained with their duties. Also the English of some staff was poor, e.g. in the restaurant, which caused some 'misunderstandings'.

The owner and the french manager were not there when we stayed 4 nights in Onlyou and it sometimes felt like if a bunch of kids try to run a hotel.

An absolute 'no-go' for a resort that calls itself '5 star' is that they charged me a (for Bali) ridiculous amount of money for the two (!) slices of extra toast I asked for at breakfast (additional to the two in had...).

From all the accomodations we had in Bali Onlyou was the 'weakest' - not particularly bad as the location is great (esp. for snorkeling & diving), but for the high price we cannot really recommend it.

After days travelling around Bali we wanted to pass the last days in quiteness, east Bali, Amed. Location was perfect: Villas are big, very beautiful balinese style, comfortable and directly on the ocean. We had the front Villa and it was an amazing view from the sunrise from the see to sunset. The whole complex is really nice.
You can enter the ocean directly from the hotel and there we found the best coral reef of the holiday, we snorkel there in the first hours in the afternoon and we were in a real acquarium!amazing!!

Very good restaurant, fully recomended. Also the breakfast is really good.

Special remark for the personal, a team of boys and girls very young but very nice, keen to help guests in every need (scooter to rent, trip to organize, snorkling mask, etc.) and always smiling. I can say they contribute a lot to have a family and warm atmosphere.

We initially reservate 2 nights but we enjoyed so much we decide to finish our holiday there and we reservate additional other 2 nights... Fully recommended, we can say we probably get there our best memories from Bali.

We were a party of 9 and we had the front villa. It is a huge villa in front of the sea with a private pool. The house is fantastic with 5 or 6 rooms and some are just huge suite . This is a very creative villa were you totally feel in vacations especially if you have kids. I never left the villa. What was the need. we asked the owner etienne for cooking of specialties such as bebek tutuk and we also had a great party with a huge babi guling for us.
I want to make sure that when people prepare their trip they have a clear info. You will not find this kind of large hous with front side easily for large parties. This is a must. Service was awsome. Some people complain about the lockers system but no one explains why it is so. It is just because you have only sliding windows that are locked at the bottom. So to simplify the closing the owner has put this to close quickly.just remove them if you feel they are a problem. I will definitely come back .

Very clean villa with mosquito net and air conditioning. Good breakfast and restaurant. The beach near the hotel (5 minutes by walk along the ocean) is nice and is a good place for snorkeling, kayak and peace. We were enjoyed to spend 2 nights but for a next time we would spend 3 mights to benefit from this quiet place.

Room Tip: Villa A is perfect, even for three adults. The view is magic!

We had decided to stay far away from the crowded Bali scene and decided to go to East Bali. Anees coordinated the entire visit with us. Starting from the pickup at the airport , to the diving trips organized by Doni and the nice snacks that kept flowing from the restaurant, we had a whale of time. The ocean view from the villa was amazing. Unfortunately, because we were diving we didnt have enough time to check out the snorkelling in the coral garden close to the hotel. But I would recommend this hotel at any time.

Nice villas with private swimming pool. Very good ration quality/price.
We spend 4 nights, the villa was very large. Very good place for snorkeling and diving, beautiful garden. There is a very good restaurant at 1 minute from the hotel from the same owner, with free transport.

We chanced upon this hotel while driving to Amed . there are many hotels advertised on the net. however, knowing where these hotels are necessary.Some are smack right in thebheart of local houses so it will be very noisy and no privacy. The beach is also obstructed by wooden boats belong to villagers. Some are along the white sand beach while others are along pebble beach. The hotel booking site does not indicated whic beach you are on. Thus going there and then deciding will be better. However if you book direct it may be more expensive. We pay a little more but was able to get a vroom with a private pool. As it is a low season and only one other group og guests we have the privates pool to ourselves which was fantastic. This hotel has 4 villa. One bedroom, two , three and four bedroom. There are three privatedvpools withinnthe vicinity and abrestaurant. Service staff are good even English not too good . Room amenities were sufficient and room is very clean. We will go back and spend more time there. As we do not dive Amed may not be suitable as therevare no other activities in this town. However if you just want peace and spen quality time with that special someone it is worth the trip . Alsobfor those that just want to be alone for once on their own . Good for the human soul .

Room Tip: Room with private pool
