“Fabulous and fantastic service and villas”
Reviewed 6 September 2011

This is my second trip to the amala and still we enjoyed every bit of it. On our first trip, we were there for our honeymoon and everything was just so perfect. Therefore, I planned for this second trip with both my family and my wife's family. They stayed at the amala residence and we at the spa villa. The amala residence was just perfect for our family members as they were very pleased with what they had. Everybody really enjoyed every moment we spent in the villa. Thank you once again The Amala family for showering us with your excellent service and help whenever we needed! Hoping to see you guys agin if possible. Cheers!

The Amala is located on Jalan Kunti almost opposite Bali Deli. The villa complex is small and perfectly formed. The staff were all fabulous and couldn't do enough to make us comfortable and enjoy our Bali experience. Wonderful organic, vegetarian food on offer along with other interesting creations for all tastes. The welcome massage and spa treatments are an absolute must. There is almost no need to leave the villa as they offer everything at the villas. Thank you again to Lisa and "The Amala Family " for the most wonderful holiday. We look forward to returning one day soon for a repeat of our 5 star experience.

Room Tip: The spa villa is beautiful - the shower, bath and basin are in the courtyard.

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon, and we had a fantastic time at the Amala staff are very pleasant and attentive. We were upgraded to the Amala residence which was a lovely gesture from Lisa. And the villa was very well furnished and had all the mod cons, evrything you requested from the staff was dealt with quickly and effiecently.We ate out most of the time for lunch and dinner but the breakfast was amazing especially the banana pancakes!! Would definately stay here again in fact we miss the place!!

My partner and I have just arrived home after a 2 night stay at The Amala and we loved it!
We could immediately see that The Amala is a place to relax and rejuvante. The grounds are lovely and it's designed in a way were you never hear anything or anyone around.
The staff were very friendly and did everything in their power to ensure we relaxed as much as possible.
We stayed in a Spa Villa. The bedroom and toilet were located inside (although the door could be slided to completely open the room as though it was outside) and the shower, bath, spa, and bathroom basin was located outside. The design was fantastic and rooms are very romantic so I'd definitely recomend for couples to stay. Mosquitos are a major problem though. Being an inside/outside type room it is to be expected although it definitely was annoying. The staff do a turn-down service each night however it wasn't a huge help. We just made sure the door was always closed.
The loaction is fantastic, right in the middle of what I thought was the best shopping in Seminyak.
Breakfast was pretty good, not a huge selection though. They had pancakes so I was happy however my partner wasn't overly happy with his meals.
I loved the atmosphere that staff at The Amala created and was very pleased with the design of the rooms. The Amala definitely has a special vibe about it.

My only majoy complaint: the rooms themselves are getting a little tired and for the price we paid, I expected something a bit more new.

Would I recommend? Yes definitely... It was truly a special place. Slightly overpriced? YES!

We stayed at Amala for a long time and spent a wonderful holidays there...the atmosphere was unique,calm and very relaxing. The staff was very friendly and open, every desire was executed...so dreams became true! )
We used SPA (good quality for reasonable price) and practiced yoga classes. The teacher was exellent and very professional.
The pool villa was well equiped and very stylish.
We stayed in other hotels in Bali but this is the best one!

There are only 12 villas in this residence and it manages to feel intimate and private. The service is second to none and the staff convey the feel of one big happy family.

The Japanese-inspired fusion breakfast of scrambled egg-white and shitake mushrooms was categorically the best dish of our journey. My wife and me could have had 2 serving each! Simply devine. We'd go back just for it.

The negatives? IT is beginning to feel a little tired, from scuffed or chipped furniture to stains on the marble floors in our living area and bathroom. The pool had a "slimey" feel to it when we arrived but this was sorted immediately whilst we popped out for lunch. We stayed in pool villa because we wanted the privacy of enjoying the pool and sun tanning - the (direction of the) villa was orientated in such a manner that only one sun lounger was only ever in the sun and the other in the shade.

Having said that, the warmth of the staff and privacy made this a relaxing and memorable stay. If only we manage to get more sun!
