“Away From the Crowd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

We stayed at Puri Wirata twice, at the beginning and end of a month in Indonesia. We stayed in the upstairs of a villa, which meant a huge balcony (it might have been shared with the other side of the duplex set-up if the place were busy) with a padded pavilion to sit in and read, or enjoy the sweeping views. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and the two small pools are great for a plunge in the heat of the day.

Our room was very comfortable and well-appointed, with a small flat screen TV, coffee maker, good AC, comfortable netted 4-poster bed, and tiled bathroom. Food in the open-air restaurant is good, with an ample included breakfast. The staff is well-trained, friendly and efficient.

There's ample relaxation area around the pools, with sun loungers and beach towels aplenty. It's steps to the pebble beach, and there are abundant fish and quite decent coral. The associated dive shop is a very good outfit. There's generally one or two local people on the beach who will solicit your business for snorkel trips along the coast. They aren't a hassle if you just say no, and we went with one to the "Japanese Shipwreck" (just OK, although if you're there when everyone else in Amed isn't, there's decent coral), and had a good outing.

Our only complaint was with transport. We were staying near the airport, and arranged a car and driver through Puri Wirata. The first time, the driver was 20 minutes late, which really shouldn't happen on an arranged 1100 pick-up. The second time, we waited 40 minutes, and when he didn't show, we scrambled around finding one of their alleged phone numbers that actually worked, and discovered that no car had been ordered, but that one would be there "in ten minutes". A half-hour later, we had to phone again, and finally 20 minutes later a driver pulled in. He proved to be either drunk or insane, or both, yelling at nothing and singing cracked snatches of song, falling asleep every time we stopped for a light, and nodding halfway off very frequently unless I shook his shoulder.

After three hours of that, including him refusing to stop and let us continue with other transport from Candidasa, I was relieved but extremely irate when we finally arrived. Tom at the dive shop helped get Crazy Boy to drop us at the right place, and we weren't charged for the ride, but it was a pretty terrifying experience. This wasn't one of their usual drivers, but the fact that in both cases we were kept waiting, once for an hour and a half, and had a totally outrageous driver, would incline me to arrange my own transport another time. Since Puri Wirata charges Rp 450,000, you have a base price to bargain from if you're in South Bali.

I'd gladly stay again, but I'd get there on my own.

I really enjoyed my stay here. My favorite thing: The pillows. They were grand. The rooms were very clean with great ocean views. The bathrooms had large showers with soap and shampoo wall mounts. The room has a light, airy quality and a nice little balcony. The walk down to the pool and reception was very steep from our room, but most of the hotels in Amed were like that. One of the pools was a little cloudy, but the other was beautiful and really pleasant. The views over both pools to the ocean were wonderful and we spent a lot of time eating and relaxing while staring out over the ocean. It's not on a stretch of shore with very good beaches, so don't expect to lay out on the sand. The food was fine but not exciting at all. The dining area is relaxing and open-air and we enjoyed socializing with the other guests.
Amed is mostly a place for diving, so we did very little other than relax and dive. There did not seem to be a lot of activities or walkable attractions/shops.

We stayed in a Bungalow room.Bed was just ok and no kettle in the room for morning coffee.
Breakfast was not available until 7:30
Only had breakfast there which was ok.
Best feature is that there is two nice pools both with an ocean view.
We only stayed one night then moved elsewhere,to a better snorkling beach.

Room Tip: Bungalow is large and except able for the price.

The location is very nice with a beautiful view of the see. There are two clean swimming pools to be enjoyed and we were lucky to get a beautiful room with a see view for two nights stay. However, the next morning we were disappointed to hear that we have to leave our room unexpectedly as it was booked for another guest. We were not informed upfront about this and it somewhat left us with the bad taste. The stuff was impolite and offered us another room but much darker and not of the same standard. We were offered no gratification for our forced move, therefore left very disappointed. The stuff requires more professionalism and politeness and understanding of working in the hospitality business.

Great stay at this hotel. As two couples, they gave us side-by-side rooms with a shared balcony and beautiful view of the ocean. Rooms were a good size, immaculate, and quiet. Service staff was friendly and efficient, and did whatever they could to make our stay more than comfortable. The food wasn't too fancy, the menu offering basic balinese, italian and american dishes, but it was easy to go elsewhere for some tastier grub - good restaurants within walking distance (15 min). Daily scooter rentals are available for a good price - required and highly suggested for getting around to the beaches, villages, restaurants and phenomenal snorkelling spots that are interspersed along the scenic ocean- and hillside road. Bali Reef Divers dive shop is conveniently located on-site, and offers great diving deals.

Stayed here in December 2013, weather was stormy in the afternoons which was perfect for having a banana lassi, a bintang, and playing cards under the umbrellas. The best part of this hotel is it's relative quietness in comparison to other hotels in Amed - there are hardly any people around/neighbouring hotels, so much that it feels like you have a part of the beach to yourself - and there are limited people coming up to you to ask you if you would like to go snorkelling in comparison to other hotels. So, you have peace here. The second thing that stands out is the beautiful pool overlooking the sea and the lawn chairs that you can lounge on with your feet dangling over the sea. This combination was extremely relaxing. We negotiated a good price (make sure you check different online booking companies, as prices can be competitive for this hotel and the management has deals sometimes), so we were booked in two very nice adjoining rooms with a shared balcony overlooking the sea. I actually really liked the rooms. I liked the balcony to read a book on when the weather got bad, and the four poster bed was nice and rooms were spacious, even though a bit dated when it comes to decor. The food in the hotel was okay, service was very good but I think you can get better fish down in Amed itself at a local fish restaurant, but given that you don't have much option around you, the restaurant is pretty decent :) All around, an extremely relaxing stay here, which was exactly the type of trip I was going for in Amed!

Room Tip: higher level rooms that have a balcony overlooking the sea are better.
