Ametis - you made our family getaway and personal celebration unforgettable!
We stayed for a week at Ametis earlier this month. I found it on the net and Tripadvisor and I must say the reviews and raves here are spot on. I can't add much new to everything that has already been said, but I must jot down some things.
First off, I must say I was very impressed by the pre-sales work done by Ametis in offering deals, assistance, and information before and during my email based booking. As soon as that was out of the way, the inimitable 'Astawa' wrote an email introducing himself as our butler and offering any help that we might need -- a very nice touch I thought.
Our actual arrival and welcome was very hearty and greatly appreciated. We were two couples traveling together and had thus booked interconnecting villas (which is highly recommended for larger groups) -- they give you privacy when you want it, and the two villas join to make a mansion when you want by sliding the wall in between (pics uploaded). Astawa and the entire staff made sure we were pampered no end, served very well, and taken care of every step of the way. They arranged for whatever beach, shopping, sightseeing, spa, surfing we wanted to do in a blink of an eye. On the first day in one of our villas when wi-fi wasn't working properly, at least 4 different people spent over 2 hours ensuring it was fixed!
The villas themselves were huge, luxurious, and comfortable -- a first luxury villas experience for us and hence no comparison point, but I don't know what more is possible without being obscene or wasteful (pics uploaded). The area of Canggu itself is very serene, quiet, and relaxing compared to most of the popular tourist/residential areas we saw. I hope it stays that way for a long time. The restaurant and chefs were excellent not requiring us to step out of Ametis if we chose (pics uploaded). And who can forget those scented cold towels everywhere :-).
I complained to Astawa and Eko that the reviews and pictures did not do justice but I understand why I can't do better. Perhaps it is best left like that. Some things should be experienced. Needless to say I recommend Ametis very highly and will go back in the blink of an eye.
