“Nice place in the best beach for snorkeling”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Nice and cosy place in the small town of Jemeluk. Rooms are clean and spacious, with good bed and mosquito nets (though not really necessary in Bali).

The owners are very nice, you'll see them a lot if you book diving with them, otherwise you might meet them when they pop-up at the place after a diving session.

We did snorkeling and the Jemeluk bay is a great place for that. Walk 5 min southwards and there is a great snorkeling site in front of the Divers' Café. Coral and beautiful fishes are just 10 meters from the shore.

The only small downside of the Geria Shanti is the noise from the road. The Amed area is still very undeveloped and there is only one big road for all the villages, so be prepared to hear a lot of motorcycles (like in the whole island).

Very nice place, recommend it.

we have spend 4 days between the 18 of August 2012 to 22 of august 2012. We have been received very well by Lisa herself. we have had a very friendly welcome and she has given us a lot off good advice. the room are perfectly clean and very well decorated.
Amed is a nice place in bali specialy for snorkeling and diving.
I strongly recommend, if rooms are available, to book this very nice guest house, because you will be really a lucky guest.

We spend two nights in this lovely guesthouse in Amed, Close to the sea, it has very nice clean rooms with a cosy front porch overlooking the garden.
The main reason of our wonderfull stay is undoubtedly the friendly staff and of cource the owners Liselotte and David, they are thruly great hosts.
They also have great facilities for diving, offer various dives and cources.
We took our very first dive under the proffessional guidance of David and it was a wonderfull experience.

We will surely go back there!

Beautiful spot next to the main road through Amed (all the villages here are called 'Amed', even if they all have different names), across the street form the beach. Perfect small clean bungalows, great shower, flowers everywhere, and, above all, an extremely friendly owner.
Liselotte is charming, welcoming, and makes you feel at home riight away.
We snorkeled, rented a scooter, had a great time. Go for it!!

You will be warmly welcomed and feeling right at home. We stayed at a lot of places in Bali this year and last year, but this one is exceptional.
Not only in value for money, this people knows what travellers want... Liselotte is charming hostess (also the owner) and David a master diver with a lot of experience.

Bungalows are great, with attention to details. Location to the beach where you can spot a lot of different fishes and nice coral reefs.
Value for money as I mentioned before; nice bungalows, clean, breakfast and free WIFI.

My last dive was some ten years ago and these guys keep me comfortable the two dives I made on the USS Liberty!!This place is really beautiful to stay!!

As we were looking for a diving company, we did some adresses. After several disappointing contacts, we arrived at the divecenter Adventures Divers at the GGS Bungalows. Liselotte welcomed us spontaniously with a smile and at the mean time, we felt that this was the right place After some technical information about the diving we decided to have several dives with her staff. This was a very good expericene; not only the good guiding during the dives but also the good price/service quality. The staff is very helpfull en nice.
With regrets, we had to continu our trip. One thing is sure, if we come back to Bali, we certainly go back to Liselotte, David and the staff. Thanks to GGS, our stay in Amed was great!!!

The pleasant experience of GGS accumulate since the very early stage when i first made my reservation.
Besides the beautiful place, clean_spacious room, and nice staffs, I immediately felt like home when Lisa greeted us with her cheery voice and anthusiasm. Lisa and David are such lovely hosts, they were very helpful and flexible in accomodating my "progressive" arrangements.

What I love the most from GGS is: it feels like we were staying at a friend's place rather than in a hotel. Their breakfast bungalow and the open air seating area in front of the diving center literally functions as the living area where we had pleasant chats with everybody.

Another high light is their dive center: Adventure Divers. It is the real good deal without any hustle and bustle. David is an excellent dive master + accompanied by professional dive guides, well maintained equipments and programs (with small group) resulting very enjoyable diving experience. I had an unforgetable and beautiful night dive at the Liberty Wreck.

Thank you GGS for the contribution in creating a fun holiday!
Looking forward to be back again.
