Balila beach resort is a new boutique-eco resort on the beach near Amed,east coast,Bali. This slice of paradise is set high on a bluff facing a crescent beach of volcanic sand,under the protection of Agung, Bali's most sacred mountain. it is an enchanting setting unmatched elsewhere on the island. Here you can immerse in the Bali long before the strips of hotels and villas crept along the shorelines. Here time settles into a slower,gentler rhythm unchanged over generations. Balila Beach Eco-Resort is build with recycle wood, comprise a large rain water catching system, grey-water from showers is recycled for the edible garden and the black water is filtered through waste-water gardens for fish ponds or non-edible plants. Solar water heaters, solar-charged reading lamps, organic garbage is composted for the garden and anything that can not be reused goes to a local recycling initiative. The rooms are spacious, naturally cooled and with the best ocean view from the bed. The restaurant serves mainly traditional Balinese food in a fresh and healthy way with a lot of organic produce from the onsite permaculture garden.

Definitely not impressed. They made us settle in a room and then they moved us to another one as they confused us with a different guest. Funny fact is that none asked us who we were or anything they just took us to the room. Of course, mistakes can happen, I totally get it. But, as a business owner myself, if I make a mistake I’ll try to offer something to my clients. They said they were sorry but that’s it. Not a treatment I would expect from a resort like this.

Dear Elena, We are sorry that you had this experience about showing the wrong room. One of our room boys showed you the room, which is not his actual job. That happened because our other staff was very busy in the restaurant. Maybe if you would have addressed the issue directly and showed that you have been so upset about it, the staff would have acted more apologising. But they told us that you said, it's no problem. Writing a bad review before addressing the problem to the right person is also a bit of a mistake. Especially because you wrote the review before actually expiriencing our place. As you said, mistakes can happen.... So hopefully you enjoyed the rest of your stay!

We had an amazing stay at Balila. We loved the location with Mt Agung on one side and the sea on the other side. We had views of the sea from our room. The resort is really well designed and comfortable. The staff were super friendly and helpful. It's easy to explore the surrounding area if you rent a motorbike. It takes 20 mins to ride to Amed. The food in the restaurant is also very good.

Balila - Team is always in my heart. Through their lovely caring, these days were the best I had on Bali. Altogether I spent 10 weeks on this magical island. I feel very happy to experience this amazing place located between the volcano and ocean energies. Million thx and greetings to all very beautiful souls who are involved in this warm-hearted and being in perfect harmony with nature project.

I live and work in Bali and sometimes one need to take a breath and just breathe. Even if you live in Bali. The special and peaceful energy of Balila Beach Resort is hard to put in words. Every time i come here i leave refreshed and fully charged! Its a great place for people who need to take a step back and be for themselves far off from any crowded tourist places. Snorkeling right in front of the resort is even better then on some recommended spots! Not even mentioning the amazing staff who are more then helpful with anything you will need and the amazing owner with her great visions of sustainable hospitality.

Absolutely stunning. This off-the-beaten path eco-resort is as beautiful as it is well-designed. Every detail in this peaceful place is well thought out, from the intricate tile in the outdoor (private) rain shower to the garden outside the meditation/yoga room that overlooks the ocean. Don't miss the evening gong meditation or delicious meals cooked by the staff that make you feel like you're family.

Lovely staff and amazing food cooked with fresh ingredients and by locals, absolutely fantastic! The whole property is build with the highest ecological and sustainable standards. The outdoor bathroom was a great experience. The view of the volcano Agung from the pool is memorable. It is also recommended to get up very early to see the sunrise behind Rinjani.

During our 3 week trip through Bali we stayed also 3 nights at Balila. All in all it was a wonderful stay! Our bungalow was lovely designed with a big bathroom and an open shower. We really enjoyed also our view at the open sea from our terrace. Moreover the staff is really, really, really lovely and helpful and the food was always freshly prepared and incredible delicious!!! There is just one little disadvantage: This paradise is a bit away from other spots. The next beach, the Amed beach, is 15min by scooter (very bumpy streets) or 20 min by walk at the beach away. Actually a scooter is a must have to enjoy the place and explore the surroundings. Alternatively, the owner shuttle you, if you need transport.

To be honest I won’t write a review about the hotel by itself cause we had to change of hotel and did not stay there. The fact is that no review or description of the hotel says that there is a water treatment center at less than 100m from the hotel. A continuous noise that we could not support, so after arriving we had to cancel the reservation and find another hotel in Amed. And the staff asked us to pay for 1 night, no matter we stayed or not... Anyway, the room looked pretty clean and the view is incredible. It’s true that the hotel is a far from the city and snorkeling spots, if you rent a scooter it will not be a problem!

Dear Martin, I am sorry that you didn't stay in our place because than you would have realised that first it is no water treatment center but a shrimp farm close to our place. And second that it's very little noise does not disturb any of our guests! The waves of the ocean are much louder and you can't here the farm at all in the rooms! We have every month yoga and meditation retreats in our place and so far not one of them complained about this 'noise'. People come to our place to enjoy the tranquility and peacefulness without any traffic or other disturbing noises which you have mostly in other places. And that is also why nobody so far wrote about any noise from the farm. I am really sorry that you couldn't expirience our very peaceful environment! To pay one night if you not stay is written in our cancellation policy and very normal with most hotels. I hope you had a nice stay in another place! All the best, Birgit

My rating of Balila Beach Resort is 3.5. Being an eco resort, don’t expect hot water for showers or air-conditioning. I stayed at the Lily Room which has a terrace and hammock at the back, offering views of the beach. There is a mosquito net over the bed which is advisable to keep closed at all times. Not because of the mosquitoes but because of the many big beetles, bees, bugs and lizards that fly/roam freely. Of the 7 nights I stayed, the resort had no running tap water overnight on 2 nights. This was very quickly fixed by morning. The staff are extremely friendly and the kitchen serves up a storm. Food, juices, smoothies are EXCELLENT! Owner/Manager’s Dad came around at lunch on 2 occasions and tried to sell Balinese rings made of “special metals and blessed stones”. He was a little insistent at wanting to get me to try on the rings. All said, it is one of the better resorts you will find if you’re planning a stay in Amed. Tucked away on a little hill, you get great views of the beach at sunrise and of Mount Agung at sunset. Balila offers a good chill-out pool deck and a yoga shala for a workout. It’s a good place to get away from it all - WiFi only available at the restaurant but still very patchy. It’s ideal if you want to disconnect and enjoy nature!
