The Amala. A villa stay for a great honeymoon.

The Amala exceeded all expectations I had of a typical villa stay. Locations are great as it's near the entrance of the main road so you won't get stuck in traffic if you stayed near the beach. 
It's not too far from the beach either - just 10min of walking or you can always use the complimentary Amala shuttle to the beach and walk back to the hotel while passing many many shops along the way.

Service from the staff was outstanding. I was contacted prior to the stay for activities provided by the hotel. We took the cooking class and my wife also had the spa. Both were amazing. Being guided by a wonderful chef Gede in Balinese cuisine was a worthwhile unforgettable experience . Meals prepared by him thereafter was also of high standard in terms of taste and presentation. (They are also able to cater to our dietary requirements)

My wife also had an amazing time with the spa services - the masseuse was amazing. Must try she said .

As for the rooms, it was clean and well attended. Due to having real trees within the villa , we discovered a bird's nest inside ours due to loud mating noises made at night but being nature lovers, we did not inform the staff. We manage to tolerate it after a night .

We also had a lovely candlelight dinner and bath - arranged by the staff in spectacular details.

In short, my wife and I love staying in the Amala. It was an amazing experience.
