Small but beautiful! Few Bungalows dotted on a slice of land right on the beach. Lovely decorated (recycled teak features, doors, outdoor shower!), lush green garden and refreshing pool. Bungalows are spacey and comfortable. Local fishermen land their colourful dhows every morning on the beach and sell their fish. Some live on the beach and offer services like boattrips or Thai-style massage (1hr for 100.000 IDR).Breakfast offers many options from a menu card, lovely banana pancakes e.g. and fresh juices. There is a small bar and a curio shop with products from environmental community projects like bags made of plastic collected from the beach. Very friendly staff!

I had a last minute booking here as the hotel I was booked in didn't have my booking, comfortable place with friendly staff, the restaurant is amazing with healthy food options and juices, there is also on site yoga a couple of times a day, I would stay here again if I went back to Amed

Room tip: Any room would be good

After needing to change our Lombok plans, we headed to East Bali and the coast by Amed.

What a gem we found!

Life in Amed was super. We had a cottage which was able to squeeze 2 adults and 3 kids in.

The setting was amazing; very tranquil, right on the beach and surrounded by well kept trees, plants and grounds.

Lovely pool, which we pretty much had to ourselves.

We could snorkel right off the beach in front of our cottage and the sea was teeming with fish of all kinds. I could have spent all day in the water.

The food was very good - kids now obsessed by vanilla peanut butter milkshakes!!!

This is our second visit to Life in Amed and we have had just as lovely of a time second time around. The staff are so accommodating and flexible and the villas and gardens are very well maintained. Hard to say goodbye and we look forward to the next visit.

Could only stay one night as that was only available. Cute little bungalows. Very ornate doors and furniture. We stayed in number 2. Big comfortable bed, air con, fan, filtered water on tap, upstairs with additional two beds and outdoor bathroom with good shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. Quite small inner space, lacking somewhere to put your bag as only one chair in the room. A lovely little patio outside. Little pool but sufficient to have a dip and easy access to the beach so as long as the tide is in, easy to swim straight from the hotel and snorkel the coral. Beach shoes advisable. A little rocky and really hot sand!

We had dinner here the night before our stay which should have been better. A friend of a friend recommended it. Had sesame tuna to start and the batter was much too thick, my husband had the calamari which was a bit soggy but tasty. Then chose the special - the fish of the day which was Marlin, very meaty but over cooked unfortunately and a bit oily so I was disappointed. Good choice for breakfast from a menu but somehow lacking again?

Staff helpful but the lack of English can be frustrating. I really wanted to like this place. Had a good ethos. Has a yoga studio at very reasonable rates and money goes to help local children do yoga and art.

Somehow the lack of attention to detail, a few cobwebs in our bathroom and around the lights in the bedroom just feels like it's lost it's 'love' somehow.

We stayed the previous night at The Palm Garden which was actually better in quite a few ways.

If you are in the area make sure you go up to the viewing areas to see the du setting behind the main volcano. 100,000 Rp seems standard one way. We went to the bar on the right which is just a shack - don't go there. But just opposite is the Blue Earth restaurant. Not sure if you can book but go upstairs and get a glorious view and lovely cheap dinner. See separate review.

I think overall I was hoping for more at Life at Amed. It is good but could be great!
