Hi.
Day 5 of our stay and so far it cannot be faulted (please ignore the bad review below).
Day starts with breakfast, there is not a huge variety, there is not really a buffet as such, but food is freshly prepared to order, fruit juices in fridge ready for drinking, fresh loaves of bread daily, my partner has said they serve a great cappuccino .Staff are attentive , helpful and remember what you had on previous visits .
The restaurant looks out over the beach , unlike other establishments we have visited our hotel has a clear view of the sea with no boats parked in the way obstructing the view or walk to waters edge .
The sea is lovely and clear and warm, there are 2 coral reefs nearby , both have some life left in them and there is a huge variety of fish to be seen , no turtles as yet though.
The swimming pool is warm and clean but not huge and as mentioned by another reviewer there are trees nearby giving adults and children shade from the strong sun.
Water fountains are in the restaurant and close to the pool and are free for hotel guests ,well done to the hotel for supplying drinking water free to the guests.
We have ate at the hotel restaurant for evening meals, there is a good variety of food on offer with several dishes suitable for vegetarians.
We have hired a 110cc motorbike for the last 3 days, its very cheap and the easiest way to get around.
The evening's are very warm and so far majority of nights have been cloudless, perfect for stargazing.

Recently with a group of friends celebrating a 60th birthday we spent a few nights at this idyllic resort. Food fantastic, rooms well appointed (including a bath), outdoor pool very relaxing and snorkeling from beach directly in front clear (turtle spotted amongst fish). Massages could be organized, walking to street shopping and other restaurants easy. Staff & management very helpful & supportive.

We stayed 6 nights.

The bungalow is traditional, clean and spacious, set in a lush well maintained garden. The pool area is amongst the garden with shady trees.

The staff at the restaurant which, overlooks the beach, are extremely friendly and helpful. Included is a daily complimentary buffet breakfast, and choice of eggs or pancake between 7am-10am. We ate lunch there most days as well, after we returned from diving.

Unfortunately there is no ceiling fan and the room was extremely hot due to no airflow, so we had to keep the aircon on. Everywhere else on our trip we haven’t needed aircon.

The shower water pressure is extremely low and it took a long time to wash conditioner out of my hair. I like having a quick shower, so was a little frustrating, but not the end of the world. However, we didn’t have any massages because we knew we wouldn’t be able to wash the massage oil off. We would of had a few otherwise.

The checkin lady was lovely. I asked about taxis and she said she could call one for us if needed, which are Rp200,000 return.

A couple of days later we went to reception and was greeted by a man, he told us it was Rp250,000 had to be paid in cash to him and can’t be room charged. If just sounded a little deceitful to me. I said I would prefer to pay the driver myself, but he insisted I had to give the cash to him. At the end of the trip the driver was waiting for the payment from us and was surprised we had given cash to the hotel instead.

Some restaurants like Sails will send a driver to pick you up and drop you home again, which was convenient. There is a small supermarket almost next door.

We found the location very convenient for diving each day and walking to other restaurants.
Griya restaurant is only a short walk and is lovely for sunset drinks followed by dinner and Balinese dancing. The restaurant at Bukit Segara is close and stunning.

You can snorkel on the reef, stunning coral on the left and lots of turtles on the right. The black sand gets a little hot to walk on in the middle of the day.

Overall we loved our stay at Hidden Paradise and found all the gardening, housekeeping, F&B, front office staff (except one) extremely friendly and helpful.

What a fabulous place. My sister & I walked in to see if we could get a room & they showed us a twin room & a family room. We decided on the family room & have been very comfortable. The room is very spacious with a king & 2 singles beds with air conditioning in each section.
The bathroom is gorgeous with twin showers, a huge bath & toilet tucked around a corner.
The gardens are lovely and a credit to the resort.
The pool is great & the perfect temperature, not too warm & the cleanest we have experienced on our trip.
The breakfast is good with a great selection & overall the restaurant is very good, we enjoyed all our meals
The staff are just so friendly, after 5 days they felt like friends.
The beach out the front is clean, but we couldn’t snorkel as a storm had stirred up the sand and it was very poor visibility but apparently it is very good after speaking to other guests.
The resort has been upgrading since the pandemic with fresh paint, new coverings on seats & sun lounges, mosquito nets, and new table clothes (previously mentioned)
We would definitely return to the lovely small friendly resort & very highly recommend it to anyone from single to families.

We were a family staying across four rooms. The air conditioning in one room kept cutting out and was eventually fixed after several attempts. Some of the beds were actually two beds pushed together but were still comfortable. The hot water in my shower suddenly stopped, but this was fixed as soon as I let staff know.
The pool was great and kept very clean.
Breakfast was an excellent variety of hot food (both Western and Indonesian) as well as fruit, yoghurt and toast. There was tea, coffee and fruit juice available and you can order a cappuccino for an extra cost.
The toilet area in my room had a consistent smell of urine that lingered even after cleaning.
There is sun loungers around the pool and on the beach which would really benefit from the addition of mattresses.
You can rent snorkeling gear very close by on the beach.

We stayed in May for 3 days, my husband and myself with another couple .We are in our 50s. We absolutely loved everything about Hidden Paradise and we’re sorry to have only spent a few days here.
It was clean , comfortable and well appointed. The gardens are magnificent.
The breakfast was varied and tasty , the food well prepared.
The restaurant was also good, we also ate at their other hotel CORAL BAY up the road, which was also fabulous.
The highlight for us was the snorkeling off the beach.
There is a young man, who rents snorkeling equipment and organises turtle/ snorkeling tours. He was brilliant! So much fun You’ll find him just out the front on the sand.

I have been here a few times over the years. Each time the vibe was a bit lower. Unfortunately the restaurant staff made us feel consistently unwelcome, bordering on hostile. Though breakfast was advertised as complimentary you had to help yourself from a fly covered corner of the room. We chose to leave 1 night early to avoid being kept awake all night by the locals who played REALLY loud balinese music from the village on the hill in an attempt to drive tourists away. After barely a wink of sleep all night we hightailed it out of there. Apparently there has been a long standing dispute between the locals and the western owned resorts that populate this town.

Amidst all this tension is some truly spectacular snorkelling! Memories of the teeming reef, accessed just off the beach, will last a lifetime.

Although the manager of the hotel was helpful and refunded our final night, the Australian owner refused to reimburse us any further. Considering we were kept awake the entire night we felt her attitude to be fairly dispassionate and unsatisfactory. We won't return.

It seems like forever driving around the coast until you reach this little hotel in Amed. The grounds are very pretty, with quaint pathways and an absolutely GORGEOUS pool - lovely to swim in during the day and lit up beautifully at night.
We stayed only for one night but I would definitely return. The hotel is right on the beach and I got up early for a spectacular dawn photo. Nice food in the restaurant (we had a late lunch on arrival and breakfast the next morning). We visited another cafe for dinner just because we wanted to see as much as possible, as time was short. Had a snorkelling session right out in front of the hotel at low tide in the afternoon (the best time), but we could have moved around the bay a little to a better spot. The photos and videos I got on the GoPro of the coral and fish on the little reef outside the hotel were very nice though.
The room itself was really good. The bed was a 4-poster with mosquito nets, great semi-outside private bathroom.
Helpful staff, beautiful garden and good snorkelling right in front of the hotel.

We stumbled across this accomodation by chance, and thank goodness! We initially made a booking to stay with another hotel in Amed for 5 nights, and despite a very hefty price tag we decided to move (the room to accomodate 2 adults, 2 kids was tiny, and the location not desirable).

We were told about HPC by dutch family that we met on Lembongan island and luckily were able to secure a family villa for the remainder of our stay. It was much cheaper than our previous accomodation, and the rooms, gardens, etc beautiful. There was heaps of room for the kids, our villa overlooked the pool and had its on verandah/deck with sun lounges etc. My favourite was the huge outdoor bathroom with two showers, and the STONE BATH set upon white pebbles.... Our kids also loved the brand new multi-function room, that was air-conditioned and overlooked the beach. At night they watched movies in this area, whilst my husband and myself had drinks in the reataurant that sat directly opposite it. Very relaxing and easy.

The food (huge menu of western and asian food) and beverages at HPC were also affordable, which meant you didn't feel you had to shop outside. Although it is situated right on Lipa beach that has numerous local shops and local restaurants.

The beach is black sand, and the hotel is situated right on it. Hire a snorkel and you can see great fish and coral 3 metres from the shore line. The hotel can also organise more extensive snorkeling and dive trips by boat.

Very good breakfast included in the price. Fresh fruit juices, fruit platter, eggs/toast, panckaes or asian style noodles/rice. I could go on forever, as it was a great stay and we were just so grateful we were able to change to this accomodation. Would be also good for couples.

HPC was our 3rd hotel on Bali during our 3-week tour of the island. Amed is actually a collection of separate villages and bays, each bay has its beach and group of hotels, restaurants, shops, divecenters… The one where HPC is located is not the most lively one but also not completely dead, average... The beach in front of the hotel was not very attractive, and did not invite to swim or sunbath too much. The garden is nice, with a small pool, but almost no place to relax. The hotel has not much more then 3 lounge chairs for the whole place, also no beds on the beach :( Breakfast was very basic, but the restaurant area - where you can have also lunch and dinner and drinks - is quite lovely. Only problem is that the tables and chairs might be authentic balinese artcraft, but are a pain to use them; luckily they have still 4 "normal" chairs and a "normal" table that we could use that normally are hidden in the back but we asked to put at the middle for a nice view on the beach. Personel shows the usual balinese hospitality, but we had the impression it was somewhat artificial, not really from the heart, and also not very dynamic, it was like if they all came to work against there will. One time they were still cleaning the restaurant while we had breakfast. Also because of "environmental considerations" (sic), rooms are only cleaned once every 2 days. In general the hotel gave a clean enough impression, though not that clean. Other reports mention mouse excreta, we indeed also had that one time, but wouldn't blow that up too much, after all you're in the tropics... It is not the worst hotel, but for 70USD you might be able to find better places in Amed. Mixed feelings, overall 2/5.

Hidden Paradise and Coral View Villas are owned by same owner and located at the same beach. The garden of Coral View is wider than Hidden Paradise, but if you need a better beach, Hidden Paradise is the choice. The room is similar only the ocean view villas at Coral View has spectacular sea view. You can contact me via WhatsApp +62811397073 Thank you

i would say no in terms of walking but the Amed beach and Temple beach areas are only 1 to 2 miles away. Very easy to get ride there and cheap!

The rooms do have a wall AC unit. Power in the room only works when key is placed in slot by door so you have to leave a key in the room while you’re out to have the AC on and your room be cool when you return. The front desk can help you hire a driver but it can be more expensive that way. We found it was cheaper to just ask around or get the contact info for the driver you hire to take you there and maybe schedule with them for any additional trips you need.
