I visited Amatoa to grab some meal for lunch with my husband & sister. When we were there, all of their guests were island-hopping so no guests were around but us (and later, there was a beautiful woman, I assumed Spanish, came to have lunch too). It is a very nice place, even the best resort in Bira, based on its architecture and surrounding. A thing that bothered us at that time was there were so many people suddenly coming into the resort just to take pictures and wandering around the resort, freely. I mean, this could be an issue for their safety. The staffs were too busy to cook our meals and I didn't see any security staff around to assist those visitors. I think Amatoa needs to consider to let visitor without proper intentions in. Other than that, me and hubby would really love to stay at this hotel for our next trip to Bira. The room rate is reasonable; they even have a 6persons capacity room for only below IDR3million/night. And, the food was great, even better than other meals served in some other hotels I've tasted.
Overall, Amatoa is a nice place to stay in Bira, but still, I agree with other testimonials written here: it could be a lot better :)
