Pros: Atmosphere, decor, staff, food. Romantic...
Cons: Location - far from most activities but for a few days a perfect getaway!
I have to admit when we first crossed this large black sand lot with a small pig stye where we stopped that we perhaps were in the wrong place.
Wrong - I went ahead of my husband to make sure it wasn't a mistake when suddenly three young men come around the corner to greet us. They immediately take our luggage as we followed them around the corner and what do we see? Paradise!
This lovely little boutique hotel has just 5 rooms, a restaurant, pool and meticulous landscaping all facing the ocean! What a surprise and FYI it looks just like the pictures that other reviewers have submitted.
Only 3 years old the rooms are beautiful with petals on the 4 poster canopy bed, very modern river rock bathrooms with rain shower heads and plenty of hot water. A nice seating area outside that looks over the pool and ocean beyond.
What really makes it special are the young men that run the hotel - they are very friendly and literally treat you as family. Pejor invited us to his home to meet his lovely wife Wayan and their little boy Augus. We were so touched to be invited over. The other family members were also helpful. We needed a bracelet repaired and one of the staff personally took us to a silver smith who fixed it on the spot and charged us next to nothing.
Breakfast was included and the banana pancake was perfect and delicious. We only stayed three night so we decided to eat at their restaurant all three times. The food was exceptional and prepared by an Uncle whose name we never did get - but made sure to thank him for his great cooking.
We were there late Jan. so the weather was not on our side - ocean too rough to swim and several heavy rainshowers. It would be amazing to visit when the water was calm and weather less unsettled!
Thanks everyone at Amed Beach Resort - this review is long over due.
