“best breakfast ever!”
Reviewed 25 August 2012

It is a wonderful hotel, very beautiful room, a great room service, very clean, the people of the hotel are very friendly. It is a great location to go the Seminyak or Kuta beach. The breakfast is fantastic, everything is fresh made. Tip go to the GADO GADO the best food with the best view.
Don't go to the tourist trap restaurant 'Ganesha café' at Jimbaran bay. They want to pick you up and bring you back to the hotel. Just the worst experience of our trip trough Bali.

My mom and I stayed here in January and were blown away by our beautiful and spacious villa. The breakfasts were probably our favorite part, YUM-- the asian style scrambled eggs and the banana pancakes were our favorite, and we loved trying a different smoothie every morning. The location is central, but still a drive away from anything (beach, restaurants, shops, etc.) Service was friendly and we loved the "boutique" feel...tucked away off the road so it was our only tiny slice of tranquility.

My partner and I recently stayed at The Amala for 8 nights. I am so pleased we chose this property, as we loved it, it was very hard to leave. It is beautifully maintained, the gardens are stunning, the villa was clean, quiet and and very comfortable. The bed was SO comfortable, we had fabulous sleeps. The Amala is set back away from the noise and hustle and bustle of Seminyak's main shopping/dining area, but all within 5-10 mins walking distance. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and very customer service oriented. The room service food was also good, especially the fresh Bali coffee and banana pancake! We also had a number of spa treatments at The Amala spa which were fabulous!! I strongly recommend The Amala and would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Amala for 3 nights in july with my boyfriend. We wanted a quiet and romantic spot, and we got it. We booked a spa villa, which was great, we had a little splunge pool,steam shower and the room was really nice. The shower and bathtub is outdoors, so remember mosqito repellent. (we didnt get a single bite).The staff is really helpfull and welcoming. The hotel is located in seminyak, its about 20 min walk to the beach and 10-15 min to restaurants. Taxis is really cheap, just remember to drive with bluebird-taxis.The hotel is really quiet, which was really nice. The breakfast is good, a lot of choices. We just called before 10.30 to book what we wanted, and they brought it to our room, fantastic:)
We booked a candlelight dinner at our room one night, it was nice but its quite expensive and the food was not that great compared to the price, but the staff really made it romantic with candles and flowers all over. One downside at the amala was the wifi, it was free, but only one person could surf on the internet at the same time.(no big deal). The pool could also have been a bit cleaner, it looked a bit dirty at times. There is no gym, but there is a fitness center close by(sunset fitness)
I can recommend some restaurants in seminyak close to the amala: Ultimo(italian) la lucciola(also italian) Red carpet champagne bar(drinks). I also got some other tips for places to eat, but be prepared to book: sarong, metiz,ku de ta, sea circus,mamasan.
I would stay again!

Reviewed 18 July 2012

My partner and I wanted a quiet holiday and we got it here at The Amala. The spa villa is a peaceful haven and the staff are delightful and very helpful.

The complex is only a five minute walk to the shopping strip and a fifteen minute walk to the beach and gay bars and everything else is a very cheap cab ride away.

You will not want to leave.
