The stay was great!! Best people and the best location. Shopping instant, the cheif is amazing and the spa is the best of them all. Even though compared to Bali prices, the spa is expensive, but when you enter the room, with all the decoration and flowers, you atomically feel relaxed.

Dear Bolinwu,
I hope you have arrived well back home, once again it was our pleasure to meet you and your girlfriend. Thank you for taking the time to review Amala. I appreciate your honesty and feedback in regards to our Spa pricing policy. I believe that our Spa is very affordable considering the quality of service and products used in our spa to pamper our Guest, but of course it is possible to find cheaper options around especially at Kuta area. As well we run frequent Spa promotions which are always advertised at our website www.theamala.com, we truly hope to welcome you back soon and to apply a spa promotion to your next.
With best regards from Bali

We love Bali. We have tried many nice hotels, but guess what? Next time we will go back to...

... the Amala "boutique" villas.

a/ great location, in Seminyak, with a very convenient free shuttle service
b/ perfectly well designed and equipped villas, where you can even have a very romantic dinner
c/ more than perfect friendly service, thank you all! Special thanks to Madlene's irresistible laugh

See you soon, dear Amala :)

Room Tip: Try a yoga or water pilates class with one of their great teachers (for instance Kembar)

We booked three nights at the Amala in a Pool Villa. Seminyak is very busy and active but The Amala is a quiet oasis in the middle of it all. It's hard to believe that so much activity is going on outside of the walls. The property is expertly maintained, the entire staff from the grounds keepers to the front desk, to the wait staff to the management offer genuine and heart felt hospitality. I can't say enough about the staff. For a few dollars more, don't hesitate to book a pool villa. They are so beautiful that you wont want to leave. Because our airline was running late we missed our connection and had to miss our first night at the Amala. The room was paid for and non refundable, so we didn't even bother to request a refund. However, when the manager heard that the missed connection was not our fault, she volunteered to refund our first night stay. The Amala and their staff are a five star establishment and what every other hospitality company should be using as a standard.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on a pool villa. You will talk about it for a long time after you return home...

After reading a few comments we zeroed in The Amala for our stay in Seminyak, Bali. It was perfect stay for us. We quickly got on to the Hotel website courtesy TA and found some good packages. The one with an everyday massage included sounded perfect for us. We stayed at the Amala for 3 days.
Right from the moment I completed booking for our stay, I got a feeling that this would be a special experience. The hotel was prompt to send confirmation and requested for our flight details to arrange a complimentary pick up. They also checked for our choices of music, cookies, movies, etc which they could make available in our rooms for our stay. This was enough to set our expectations high and the staff at Amala did a good job to exceed it. All the staff members knew our names the moment we arrived. The food was delicious. the hotel ambiance was lovely.
Madlen and her team are running this place beautifully.

The spa was busy all the time, hence an advance booking is strongly recommended. But it is worth the wait as well. One of the best massages that I have experienced.

What really set our experience apart was the personal touch from all the staff at Amala. The team took interest in advising us the right places to go to, booked restaurants tables for us and whenever we returned they took a prompt feedback on their suggestions so that they could recommend it to other guests.

We will definitely go back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Amala-so much that we hardly left our villa. The spa villa has a plunge pool, kitchen, living room, bedroom and beautiful bathroom. Butler service was available 24 hours for our every whim. Yoga and spa treatments are available in the resort. Spa services are top notch. Food is health conscious, fresh and most importantly delicious. The resort is truly boutique with only 15 rooms. We loved the privacy yet attentiveness the staff gave us. We left The Amala completely relaxed and rejuvenated.

We took Amala since it was our honeymoon. Loved the private villa with the private pool, kitchen, room, hall and most imptly the cosy bathroom. However there was practically no view from our villa. It was enclosed . Seminyak was quite far from kuta and legian but as honeymooners we were ok with the privacy we had. The breakfast was gud and our package had spa included in it. Spa was ok. A lady working there dropped us at kuta in the car and aftr all the shopping we took a cab back to our villa. The staff were very friendly and we took tour package to visit kintamani and Ubud. Bali is a beautiful place to visit. As we went around Bali we realise there are numerous options to hotels to stay. Amala was reali on the very EX side but we decided to splurge since it was our honeymoon but for this price, you can get nice resorts in Jimbaran and other places with great seaview.
