Apparently we arrived at a bad time. The rains had finished late, the workmen were repaving the paths and we (3 couples) were the only bookings. We were shown the "garden view" rooms we'd booked and they were unimpressive, poorly equipped rooms looking at a sad unmown piece of grass. We were thinking of moving on but the friendly (though somewhat clueless) staff said we could swap rooms and we ended up in the beachfront villas for an extra $20 a night. Double One isn't situated on the best beach (there isn't one to speak of) but it's only a short walk to Lipah where the beach and snorkeling are fabulous. For the 4 days we were there the army of workmen worked on the paving of the paths which made access to our rooms and the pool a challenge at times (not to mention the noise). Having said all that, once the manager came on duty next day he went out of his way to make our stay a pleasant one. The food is good, the pool lovely, and stairs back up to road provide a regular free aerobics class.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Double OneAmed Resort is situated in the north east of Bali facing out across the sea towards Lombok. The Amed area is often referred to as the "REAL" Bali. We are only a two hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Denpasar but the difference is remarkable. Time is not measured in hours and weeks here but by the setting and rising of the sun and the appearance of the full moon. By the gentle sea breezes of the dry season and the monsoonal downpours of the wet season. Here life continues onwards as it always has done - with a calmness and tranquility that leaves the mind and body soothed and peaceful. ... more less
