We have just returned from Amed Lodge and dearly wish we could have stayed longer.
What a find! What an ultra-relaxing beachfront treat! Situated in the low- key north east of Bali – a region replete with Balinese culture- Amed Lodge brought back the joys of the ‘old Bali’ we revelled in over 30 years ago. There’s no crowds, no traffic, no unsightly high rises, just a series of villages strung out along an exotic black sand coastline.
Amed Lodge is a rarity in that it is unique and stylish yet also supremely comfortable.
Our room – called Amed and graced with a balcony that overlooked the sea – was a spacious tactile treat of beautiful timbers and storied antiques and textiles.
The resort is intimate and the service is unobtrusive but very efficient and helpful.
The vibe is that of having a rustically stylish beachfront haven all to yourself….: just heavenly.
I loved how we could sleep with the doors open and soak up the sound of the little waves. Each room is unique and presents a feast for the eyes and is rare for the detail and care taken.
Out the front there is good snorkelling – plenty of fish – and nearby are world =class diving and snorkelling sites such as Japanese Wreck, USS Liberty, numerous coral gardens and at the end of the beach the endlessly intriguing ‘ Wall’ a fantasy of big coral bommies and fish that come in so close they make you giggle out load.
Looking forward to de-stressing at Amed Lodge in the future.
