We, family of 4, stayed 14 days in Amed in Villa Celagi. Beforehand we read all the reviews, in real it is even better. The house is top, 2 big bedrooms with their own bathroom; huge living room. Then the pool - excellent. 15m long, so we were able to swim. The view from the pool is.. cant even describe it.
The cook, Wayan, is lovely. Every morning she served breakfast. At least once a day, either lunch or dinner, Wayan prepared the meals for us. Her cooking was very good, that is the reason why we ate so often in the Villa. Ketut the driver, knows a lot about hindu-culture!
A perfect, private haven to relax, with enormous 180degree views over the ocean, watching the sunrise and the colourful sails of the fishing boats coming to shore, against the silhouette of Lombok. After a swim in the truly enormous pool to work off Wayan’s equally enormous breakfast, the bale was a perfect place for a siesta, lulled by the sound of the waves below. Easy, short walk to the Japanese shipwreck for snorkeling & diving, and to good restaurants (Komeng John’s, Acquaterrace & Trattoria) and also good cheap warungs. Very large, clean bedrooms and bathrooms, with comfy beds and good aircon. We had good reliable wifi connection while there. Wayan looked after us wonderfully well, and she and manager Dirta were helpful with all our needs, including ordering delivery of groceries, in-villa massages, ttransport and restaurant bookings.
We stayed for 6 days in late April and really enjoyed the Villa. The view is amazing and worth the trip from the south. Waking up early to watch the sunrise will stay with me for long time, absolutely amazing. Watching the silhouette of Lombok and the fishing boats returning in the morning was definitely a highlight. Then watching Lombok disappear later in the day is definitely worth watching. As you can see I spent a few hours each day just sitting on the day bed and watching the amazing scenery.
Wayan is an amazing cook and very friendly and helpful.
Everything was better than expected.
Where to start. One of the most perfect holiday houses we’ve ever been to. Everything was simply amazing. The villa is beautiful, modern, open, super clean. You wake up, you get out of your heavenly bed, you walk up to the porch and there it is: the most beautiful view you could wish for. The pool is lovely as well and you have complete privacy. And you can swim in the pool while watching the ocean below, so what more do you want?
Then the staff. Wayan is super friendly and an amazing cook. We ate there almost every day and it was better than at the restaurants. The gardener keeps everything clean, from the pool to the garden below. It almost feels wrong to enjoy this level of luxury. We loved it. We’ll definitely come back.
Wow....is your first thought as you enter the villa and see the most amazing pool and breathtaking view of the water. Photos can not do it justice. It is truly the most amazing view. Mornings spent watching the sunrise over the water and all the fishing boats heading out. Mornings spent swimming in the huge infinity pool and evenings with a glass of wine on the bale listening to the sound of the water. It is paradise in Amed. The villa is huge and so comfortable. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff, so friendly and welcoming. Thank you Dirta and Komang. Our driver Ketut a big thank you for transport to and from the villa. And an extra special thank you to the lovely Wayan for looking after us so well and the delicious meals.
Thank you to Theriesa and Jonathan for all the extra helpful information given to us about the villa and the area. We would definitely love to come back.
