We simply felt in love with this place at the first sight - and it was until we met the staff - after that, we were lost completely. Ketut, Mandra and Ilo were amazing. There was nothing problem for them, like all your wishes were fulfilled in advance rather than in a heart beat. They treat you like member of close family.
Ketut is too self-effacing to admit it, but she is a real chef! All prepared food was so good looking and delicious and tasty and yummy. So there was no way to waste and we always ate so much that I thought that I won´t be able to float on the surface during the snorkeling and I just sink to the seabed like a brick. :o)
Maybe it is useless to write about the property and its beauty (because you can see it) but I have to. The garden, the flowers, the ponds, the swimming pool, the dining area and of course the room with the outdoor bathroom were absolutely stunning. At first we just couldn´t understand that this everything, all that breathtaking beauty, is there just for us.
Next thing, I was really amazed by, was snorkeling - yes it was my first experience with coral fishes and corals, but still - I was excited! Like I read here below, there was very nice spot for snorkeling just few meters down the beach (to the left from The Kampung) and the others nearby. We rented (or Mandra rented for us is more correct) a motorbike for one day and went to Jemeluk, where is very nice pagoda under the water and little bit different fishes than near The Kampung (from what we saw...). Then we went to the place where small japanese shipwreck is, which was also very interesting and with really nice corals there. Both places were very easy to find and reach and very nice to see.
The Kampung also organized for us the pick-up and take-off transfer which was really helpful. The driver was very nice and we made stops at the places of interest on the way - we can highly recommend it too.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay and we really hope that there will be some possibility for us to come back.
Gods bless this place and all the people there.
Thank you very much - Ketut, Ilo, Mandra and Bill

“Just Fantastic !”

We spent 3 days at the Kampung and would have loved to stay longer ! But we had time to relax , snorkel and enjoy the beautiful weather . The Kampung is just a fantastic place , quiet , in front of the beach , next to Apa Khabar Villas . The villa next to us was empty so it was extra quiet .
The staff is really very nice and friendly and cook delicious food which we had ordered the day before . The living room and a dining room are in the main house batak style , 2 other Javanese style villas are the bedrooms with a lovely decoration and CARPETS , a touch of class which I did really love. The garden is well kept with lots of exquisite details.
Thank you Bill for this unforgettable stay . We will definitely come back and stay longer .

It's not often that you arrive somewhere, walk through a gate and have a "jaw drop". The location and layout of the Hideaway is outstanding: a charming mix of authentic buildings and modern conveniences, spotlessly clean accommodation, well tended beachfront pool and gardens .... surrounded by rice fields. We travelled with our son, his family of 4 (including 2 children, 7 and 10 years old) and his mother-in-law. The three generations were all equally impressed with the Hideaway. There was plenty of room for the kids to play, the pool was perfect, and we were right on the beach. It was a welcome reprieve from the crowds and commerce of Seminyak and Ubud. The roads are quiet and safe for motorbikes and the village provided the few items that we needed for our stay. We ate most of our meals at the villa since they were some of the best we had during our three weeks in Bali - and incredibly reasonable. The kids were more than happy to stay "home" and eat.
To the staff: you were professional, efficient and accommodating. We can't thank all you lovely people enough for making our stay so memorable. Our only regret is that 4 days went by so quickly. Had we known how beautiful the Hideaway was, we would definitely have booked a longer stay. We hope to meet you again!

We loved our stay at the Kampung and wished we could have stayed much longer than the four days we had. I agree with other reviewers that it is even more beautiful than the pictures portray. Amed was one of our favourite places on our first visit to Bali and this was made all the more special by our stay at the kampung. We enjoyed the more local feel of Amed and the ability to interact with the people and be away from the more heavily tourist end areas. The staff are just outstanding! A special mention to Wayan who took care of all our needs and to Made for her delicious Balinese home cooking! We ate almost every meal at home and it was all freshly prepared. We took a sunset and a sunrise boat trip with one of the local fishermen which was lovely. We also thought that the Vila was in the perfect location in Amed - also owing you to explore the little villages and bays on either side. For those who do want to eat out , there are plenty of places near by. harmony restaurant - a 10 minute walk is great. We also hired a scooter to explore along the coast - the roads are nice and quiet. As scuba divers, we also found the diving to be excellent in Amed. I would love to return again with a friend or family group and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else than here. Thanks to all for a memorable time!

“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

people found this review helpful

From the moment we arrived we were astounded at how beautiful and serene the location and residence was. The individual Javanese huts were awe inspiring and well appointed- a great mixture of old world charm with modern amenities. The photos did not do it justice which is generally the opposite of our past experience. We tend to mostly find that the photos over represent how good a residence is. This is our fifth Bali villa and by far the best, we would never stay anywhere else when in Amed. Combine that with our love of scuba diving and paradise :-)

We came to The Kampung with 6 kids (4 teenagers and two in their early 20"s). Everyone loved the Kampung, the location, the residence and of course the staff. They are absolutely genuine in their endeavour to create the perfect holiday for everyone. Wayan was amazing in his enthusiasm to help us. Nothing was too much for them and they wanted to help us in any and every way. They kept the residence scrupulously clean, the gardens were lovingly tended to and the food cooked was better than almost all of the restaurants that we visited, Made is a fabulous chef.

All the previous reviews were 100% correct, The Kampung is a home away from home and very much like visiting family. We could not fault this residence on any aspect and will definitely be back.

Thank you to all the wonderful staff who made this or best Bali experience yet!!!
