The Amala's service was perfect right from the start upon arrival at the airport. We had free airport transfers as part of the package we paid for, and the staff that came to pick us up was courteous, and served us cold water once we stepped into the car.
Upon entering the property, it felt like a totally different world from the street outside. Peaceful, calm, green and comfortable. The staff at the front desk were very friendly as well, and check in was super easy quick. They also checked with us all the activities we had confirmed with them (a cooking class, spa session), as well as the hiking tour to Mt Batur I had gotten a contact from them for. As we were going to be setting off very early, they even checked if we wanted to have a pack breakfast box to bring along, and also gave us a late checkout so we could hower after our hiking trip and before our flight back!
When it came to activities to do in Bali, they were very helpful in suggesting places to go around the area, and they even went out of their way to help call a couple of places for dinner for us to ensure we could have it at a sunset facing restaurant!
The villa we stayed in was the spa villa and the room was gorgeous! The outdoor spa pool area was where we spent most of the time chilling, and we also had our breakfast in the comfort of our own villa. No complaints at all about the room! Looks just like it does on photos and was very clean!
I also have to mention the cooking class we had with their in house chef, Gede. He was great in explaining to us the different ingredients and what to do. We definitely had lots of fun, and a great meal after as well!
The spa session we had was also great, the masseuse knew what they were doing, and used just enough strength. It was perfect!
Location was great, it was near the busy shopping and eating area in Seminyak, but not that near so we still had our peace and quiet. Great for people who are look for action in the day, but good rest at night.
All in all, I would definitely be recommending The Amala to my friends and we wished we stayed longer!
