I had read the previous reviews before booking and am happy to say that I experienced no pushy staff at all during my three day stay. Everyone was just smiles with no mention of tours or anything other than a question as to how well I slept.
I had the room at the very top of the hill which has a splendid view over the garden to the ocean. It even includes a nice lawn area.
The room itself was absolutely huge and everything was spotlessly clean. The big shower with hot water was a welcome bonus.
Yes, the steps are a bit of a trial down the hill to the restaurant and the pool but if you take them at half the pace of what you are used to, they are fine. I am 63 and it was a minor inconvenience. The restaurant was surprisingly good and the food is super fresh as well as being remarkably inexpensive. The WIFI worked fine in my room and beside the pool.
Double One has another complex a couple of kilometers away on flat ground. Each suite has the same enormous bedroom and a bonus kitchen and furnished dining area as well as a shared pool. No view but the same lovely Balinese gardens.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Double OneAmed Resort is situated in the north east of Bali facing out across the sea towards Lombok. The Amed area is often referred to as the "REAL" Bali. We are only a two hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Denpasar but the difference is remarkable. Time is not measured in hours and weeks here but by the setting and rising of the sun and the appearance of the full moon. By the gentle sea breezes of the dry season and the monsoonal downpours of the wet season. Here life continues onwards as it always has done - with a calmness and tranquility that leaves the mind and body soothed and peaceful. ... more less
