A long winding road led to this hidden gem, nestled within a village of fishermen, pigs and roosters. It’s right on the shoreline, so you can rent snorkel gear and swim right out into crystal blue waters to the famous Japanese Shipwreck. And within the resort you’ll find calm and beautiful villas, fluffy green grass, a cute swimming pool and gourmet seaside dining, all at an incredible price.
What we loved most was how Ari, Wayu, Jen, Ani, and Koma all made us feel like family. We arrived quite late but were met with a smile. Perhaps we were smart for going during low season, but every need was taken care of.
Although the room, view, and breakfast were all amazing, we wanted more. So we indulged heavily in additional services like seaside dinner, private yoga class and couples massages and found them amazing and worth every penny.
Even though Chef Agosto was on holiday, his staff’s food was incredible, offering gourmet presentation and quality at every bite! Do try the “best pork ribs in Amed” nestled on mashed sweet potato and spinach.
We booked a sunrise yoga class with Guru Kocek. His vibrant passion for yoga as a way of life is contagious, and I felt healthier and wiser as a result of the session. Great for total beginners to the most advanced as he will challenge you.
Nalini definitely lives up to Ari’s view that “difficult roads lead to beautiful places”. If you can, make the trip to remote northeast Bali and experience this homelike resort.
