My husband and I stayed at Amed Lodge – Sudamala for four nights and very much enjoyed our stay there. The architecture is unique, with woven bamboo slats and sturdy wooden beams supporting the ceiling. An air-conditioner and a ceiling fan complemented one another. And in addition to a canopy, our room had a beautifully crafted platform bed in solid teak. To top it off, the door to our bathroom had a sliding wooden bolt, taking me back to the days spent at my grandmother’s house, way back when.
The team of staff members, headed by Dessy, was very helpful and made us feel at home. They took our order for breakfast with a smile, and accommodated my meticulous instructions for scrambled eggs and cheese on toast. The dining area overlooks the ocean, very calm and serene.
Amed Lodge has a well-maintained swimming pool at 1.5 meters in depth at the deepest end, and that’s where we hung out to take a dip.
The village of Amed is a 3-hour car ride from Ngurah Rai Airport in Denpasar, Bali. It is well worth the effort to get there, and Amed Lodge – Sudamala is the ideal place to stay.
