This "high house on the hill" is truly the loving lifeblood of Liselotte and David who have made this home from scratch, landscaping the well-manicured 'jungle' and retaining the Balinese flavor in its architecture. Having had the privilege to stay in 2 of the rooms and view 3 of them, (I was neighbors with my dive buddy! So well-arranged) I must say I enjoyed all of them.
Individually charming while retaining a sense of privacy and comfort, each bungalow is unique and super clean. The furnishings are tasteful; well-coordinated color and style wise, picked from the arts and cultural hub of Ubud. The touches of handmade smiley faced hearts placed with the towels and sweets in a smartly refurbished receptacle on the bed definitely lends a personal touch and makes my heart go AWWH~ The beds are equipped with mosquito nets and are really comfy. It doesn't matter that there isn't air-con: you don't need that here where is the sea is just across the street! Besides, it isn't that good for your health.
Have your fill of their hearty breakfasts lovingly prepared, tailored to your request- Eggs in your preferred style, fruit kebabs or fresh juice, banana/pineapple pancakes, homemade bread fresh from the oven every morn! Butter, fruit jams, coconut syrup and honey go really well with the above… The drinks are fantastic too! A favorite among everyone is their iced-cuppucino. I do love their lime/orange/papaya/watermelon/banana/mixed juices too~
Tiger is also a darling- an affectionate, lazy and amiable pet kitty you will come to love as he snuggles in zen poses, instilling philosophies to your subconscious mind...
I would not hesitate to stay here again when I do pop by Amed for a dive. Thing is, is it often fully booked so do check with Lisa before your arrival. If there isn't, a cosy place close by would be recommended. If there is space, she will accommodate you as soon as possible.
If you stay here, do DIVE if possible. Or learn it like I did if you've never done it. Because it is worth it and they are really professional and take it seriously that you have fun and learn.
