October 2012 we stayed 3 weeks on Bali with 1 week diving , in Amed at bij Geria Giri Shanti. Diving with Adventure Divers. When staying in Bali a few places one should visit. Ubud for its culture, Munduk for coolness and relaxation and Amed. Amed is great beautiful diving place and still lots of original Bali is preserved there .
Amed is a relaxed place to stay, you probably will only miss an ATM machine, (or perhaps you won’t). To solve this just rent a scooter (ask Liselotte when staying in Geria Giri Shanti) and use the costal way to Karagasem. There go to the supermarket Hardy’s this is pure fun and astonishment. Take your time and visit the two water palaces. Just enjoy the trip.
Staying at Geria Giri Shanti was superb. Liselotte, David and there staff gave us the warm feeling of being home and part of their family. And on Bali family is important. We still remember the long talks at the “dive plaza” of adventure divers in the middle of Geria Giri Shanti. Liselotte provided the tea and cookies. The bungalow’s at Geria Giri Shanti are cozy, with warm and cold water. Not a 5 star bungalow but more than enough. Everything is clean and daily cleaned, clean bed linen and daily clean towels.
There’s no airco but you don’t need one. Just open the doors, put the fan in the door opening at night’s. Nothing will happen because everyone sleeps at night In Amed. Max the dog will watch over you.
Diving with adventure divers, also Geria Giri Shanti was super. They take care of everything so you can just enjoin the dive. When staying at Geria Giri Shanti you get discount on the dives (the prices are low so it’s even cheaper) Ketut was our dive master with all our dives. Diving with adventure divers is just perfect, relaxed and they know there dive spots. Don’t forget to take a night dive. Even stranger creatures will appear in your spotlight.
If you want to sail, ask Wajung the gardener at Geria Giri Shanti. He will sail along the cost of Amed in a traditional jukung. The best way to experience the sunset.
When getting hungry lots of warungs to choose from, but go to Enak or Pantay to get the best for less.
We just want to go back and stay at Geria Giri Shanti again. It’s just the place to stay and go diving with adventure divers.
It was just perfect.
