This place is a gem. They have expensive modern accommodation with AC as well as rustic huts which are SUPER cheap. Regardless of which you choose, the staff are really helpful. This last time I took a long weekend break to clear my head and the peace and tranquility was perfect. They deliver hot drinks before dawn and the provided breakfast is hearty enough to set you up til dinner.
The male staff were all lovely. The bungalow was dirty - I had to take the mosquito net down, it wasn't clean enough too sleep under. The bathroom was filthy, and the towel smelt. A rodent got into my bag during the night, and ate my snacks.. The morning hot water was a lovely touch! The girls in the cafe were sullen, and the food sadly was made without love. The whole place needs refurbishing - the location is lovely, but I left feeling like I needed a scrub down.
I'm sleeping outside every night.. on the daybed on the "porch" of the little Bambu bungalow.. .. falling asleep to the waves and the crickets..it's dark but I feel so safe... Waking up to the birds and the fishermen quietly taking their boats out. I walk a few meters down to the sea and just sit in the water on my own, waiting for the sun to rise.. Just a few local people are up.. And me.. It's so quiet.. When the sun is up I take my sarong and go down to the pool for a few laps.. 6 o'clock and still no people around. This is the only place in Amed with this quiet old Bali vibe.. All the other places I passed on the way out here are all alike.. It's worth getting here. If you are looking for peace.. Come here. I stayed for five nights and thinking about coming back later on my journey and do some snorkeling which my fellow neighbors say is fantastic. Right where I saw the huge school of dolphins the other day. The restaurants most expensive dish is 54.000.. There are a few bungalows with AC too if you find it too hot to sleep.. Or why not do like me.. And if you do.. Don't forget mosquito repellent.. :) Enjoy! …
We spent 8 days in the deluxe bungalows, mainly relaxing and snorkeling. The place is so peaceful and beautiful, far away from everything, definetly in a good way. The bungalows are just by the sea, and it was easy to snorkel many times per day. The restaurant has the tables on the beach, it is incredibly beautiful. Great to see the fishermen returning every morning to the beach. Really a place where I want to return to to relax and enjoy simple life.
The beachfront Good Karma bungalows can be divided in three .. at the far end some six original bungalows with thatched roofs and smallest of the three: they were the first to be built by the Balinese/Japanese couple owning Good Karma. In the middle some enlarged bungalows with a second mezzanine bed, and at the other end some four villas with kitchenette and two kingsize bed, for families. These have a tiled roof and airco. There is a pool near the villas and the housereef stretchs along the beach for superb snorkeling. The restaurant serves local and sort-of Japanese food. Friendly service and pricrs are beyond belief.
