“Tranquil and Beautiful!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We stayed at this lovely boutique hotel in Amed in April of this year for a week. We really enjoyed the lovely tranquility of Golden Buddha. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful and accommodating.
We would end each day by having cocktail by the lovely pool and enjoying the ever changing mountains in the background as the sun set.

Our cottage was very clean and bright and each day the staff came and cleaned and made our beds. very sweet.
I got two fantastic massages and one facial in their onsite spa.

I recommend Golden Buddha as a lovely respite in this truly beautiful area of Bali.

Room Tip: Choose the room in the left side. But all the rooms are comfortable so what ever room you choose it...

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Golden Buddha for 5 nights in March of 2013. We all are still talking about our time there.

Not only is this area of Bali (Amed) beautiful and peaceful, but Golden Buddha was amazing. The grounds are impeccable with fish ponds, tropical flowers and delightful Buddha statues to greet us throughout. There are inlaid stone paths meandering everywhere to take you to your cottage or the dining pavilion or the day spa for a relaxing massage (of which I had many!)

The cottage was clean, bright, and quite roomy with a king bed plus an additional twin sized bed which our two kids snuggled into. And there is a stone inlaid private outdoor shower which was so wonderful.

The pool is gigantic with these majestic mountains in the background. We went swimming every morning and every evening under the stars.

The staff was great and we made some nice friends with some of them. They came each day while we were out to thoroughly clean our cottage for our return. I felt so taken care of there. They also arranged all kinds of activities for us and the kids.

I highly recommend Golden Buddha for a delightful place to stay in an unspoiled part of Bali. We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Room 3 is good. Its near the pool and its in the middle

As Bali becomes more and more popular, it's getting harder and harder to find an authentic experience that is true to the island's legendary essence. Golden Buddha is perfectly situated in the elbow crook between quiet beaches and serene mountains. The staff, amenities and location exceeded all of my expectations. As a harried corporate executive, I badly needed to unplug and exhale with a delicious vacation away from kids, buzzing cell phone, noise and crowds. I can't wait to go back.

MY husband and I recently enjoyed our honeymoon at this delightful,serene,newly finished resort nestled along the coast road in Amed,Bali.

We were immediately enchanted by the lush gardens and the quirky stone path which wove itself throughtout the property leading one to the gorgeous pool with the Buddha wall (as we termed it!).Our cottage was so clean and fresh smelling. The air-conditioner worked very well to keep us comfortable at night. There is a large,marble bathroom with a beautiful under-the-sky shower. Wonderful!

The friendly staff saw to our every need; arranging massages in the on-site spa,tours around the area,snorkleling trips, etc. We had a lot of fun with them.

I highly recommend Golden Buddha as a great resort in the stunning area of Bali.

I and my family are currently staying for one week at Golden Buddha. This is a fantastic property with a huge, beautiful pool at the end of which is a Buddha statue in a large waterfall wall. The stunning green mountains in the background add a sense of drama to the setting. There are wonderful serene gardens, fish ponds, and a giant Buddha head to ponder.

They have a day spa on sight for relaxing massages and a kitchen area is available. So far we have eaten most of our meals across the street at the owner's restaurant, Pazzo.

There are five cottages surrounding the pool; each in beautiful marble with a king bed and a twin bed. They all have private outdoor showers, also.

I will say though as nice as the physical surroundings are, the real star is the dedicated, super friendly and helpful staff. They have arranged everything for us all week including. diving, temple tours, snorkeling, and hiking excursions. One of the staff brought us to see their home in a small local village and we got to experience a real part ob Bali life.

An excellent and relaxing resort!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are equal in amenities and size.
