I booked a spa experience at The Amala for my sister and I. First we had a private water pilates class which was fantastic! Mr Budhi was an amazing instructor and he also helped with a shoulder problem I've been having for months. Then we had a Cooling Jade Facial-incredible! The staff here were just fantastic, very friendly and competent. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a truly luxurious spa experience!
Firstly, the bed was welcoming (decorated with my name, very adorable!) and super comfy, the spa villa room was a nice size and the jacuzzi, steam shower also. Clean rooms, quality amenities with modern/relaxed ambience. In particular, the bathroom was outdoors with a huge mirror suited for an active instagrammer like myself. I couldn’t stop taking pictures because every detail was perfect. Both public and private spaces with visually impressive and luscious exterior and interior plants, pools, combined with the right decor and lighting inside and outside, definitely recommended for those seeking a tranquil atmosphere. Amala’s 2 hour Balinese massage and full body scrub were outstanding, the massage therapist was very professional and made me feel relaxed and taken care of, I enjoyed the rose petal bath and ginger tea after being totally pampered. Indeed a very nice way to finish off my vacation. Cooking class was a most enjoyable experience, the Amala Chef taught us the essential Mi Goreng (Indonesian friend noodle) making, finishing off with a delicious coconut crepe. Highly recommended if you’re a foodie or simply wanting to learn the basics like me. Front desk was fun, polite and fast check ins. Driver met with me smiles and was very knowledgable, you are close to many great restaurants, boutique cafes and shopping in Seminyak. Delicious and healthy hotel breakfast, good coffee, green juice and ice tea, with a wide selection of both Asian and Western meals and refreshments. Overall, The Amala Seminyak was a healthy indulgence with their service rooted in ‘PassionForLife’, modern essentials, and a host of features that ensure a wellness stay you will long remember. I will be recommending my family and friends to stay here on their next trips to Bali. I also look forward to staying at their sister hotel ‘Villa Air Bali’.
Stayed here for two nights and had the complimentary transfer service pickup and drop off at airport which was good. Was looking forward to staying here but was pretty Disappointed with the villa. Villa was big and spacious but the pool and bathtub looks dirty. There were plenty of black powdery stuff coming out of the tap water which management explained that it was due to maintenance work. Breakfast was at the villa but not overly impressed with the food. Spa is worth a try, I had an hour massage which is fantastic. Price wasn't exactly cheap but the rooms are nice and nicely set up and the masseuse was brilliant. Staff were all warm and friendly and probably the main reason to stay in this villa. Otherwise there are plenty of other villas in Bali where you could get better value of money.
We stayed at the Amala villas during our stop in Seminyak for 5 days and enjoyed the time there so much. Everyone there is really kindly and helpful. We had an Spa Villa with our own small pool with jacuzzi function and a sauna. The room was modern and always clean. The house keeping team checks the up to three times per day and prepare also everything for the night and do an daily mosquitoes service. All food and beverage can be taken whether at the small and lovely restaurant or would be served to the villas. We really appreciated the time in the Amala and will definitely come back if we are again in Seminyak. 100% recommend 👍🏻
We stayed here for 1 week which was marvellous. we stayed in the spa villa ( we know thy also offer poop villa)In our spa villa , u have ur own jacuzzi in your small garden area, the setup is very nice. All amenities are well provided. The staff are very very nice and polite. They are very helpful and flexible too. Special highlights: 1) the BBQ dinner can be set up in your villa which is awesome. They especially decorate ur villa to make it a nice private dinner. Pls go for the BBQ full set with whole grilled fish as one of the options. ( we choose whole grill fish, Pork ribs and lit lit) . We love so much our fresh snapper grilled in front of us which is amazingly tasty , juicy and with good texture. Trust me as usually I am very picky for cooked fish. And all other food are very well too 2) wonderful breakfast. U can opt to eat in the restaurant or order to ur villa. First , there are so many options u can choose whatever u like( really anything) on the menu . And the attendants are so flexible to customise per ur request since we don't wanna waste some food coming with the plate so we somehow order to exclude something or add something. Their breakfast taste very good too! Great fry up, homemade fresh fruit yoghurt ( really so fresh) , bubur ayam ( local congee but so good), bakso and many others.We love so much our big breakfast every morning. 3) well caring staff. They are always making sure we are comfortable and happy . They wrote down in very details what we wanna order for food, explain us the activity we wanna book, arrange booking for our spa , etc. All staff you bumped into on daily basis are very nice people in general 4) quite good location in seminyak. You can walk to some key areas but if it too hot u can choose to take blue bird group cab ( remember not blue biro group not blue taxi group which are not correct) 5) love all small details . Like for my birthday, they decorate nicely on my bed , they also offer me a very yummy cake . They also gave us a very sweet card when we are leaving the hotel 6) due to our evening flight , we can arrange to pay a bit amount to stay as long as we need to leave the hotel for the flight . Very flexible hotel ! 7) the spa there is awesome! Our room rate include already a daily hour massage and indeed u can do whatever combination u want. I am always spa fans and tried in many places. I love their Balinese massage and foot reflexology particularly than the signature one. We feel so relieved and comfortable after that . Very good skills ! Spa rooms are simple but nice too! Overall we love the stay here and we highly recommend . The reasons besides the above, we feel this kind of warm hearted services are outstanding than those bigger standardise hotels which cannot reach this level .
My father and I stayed in the Amala during five days. The place is simply wonderful: a beautiful and peaceful hotel, a very friendly and nice staff, and the hotel is very well located in Semyniak. Special note for the breakfast, which is just deliciously amazing. Everything was perfect. Will definitely come back!
The resort property and 3 bedroom villa was the best, most relaxing place... very nice. We all went swimming in our private pool every chance that we could. Just loved the indoor/outdoor space. Just wish the kitchen came with utensils, etc so could heat up food or cook simple meals. Our villa had 4 bathrooms, but the one on the first floor had a sewer problem. We notified them twice, they came twice and nothing changed. We also had a door lock problem, which didn't get fixed for two days. Hopefully, they fixed it by now!
The Amala reflects a truly relaxing, euphoric and exquisite experience. We stayed in a pool villa and it was absolutely breathtaking. The trickling of water down the main feature was very soothing and calming. The room was immaculate and house keeping did an amazing job throughout our stay. The reception staff were exceptional and greeted us on a first name basis which I really liked. They were always so happy and delighted to see us and very willing to cater to our every need with bookings, tours and calling taxis. Breakfast every morning was delicious, did not take long and the menu was quite extensive. During our stay, we also got to experience the spa and we could not fault this. We did try other places but the atmosphere, aroma, and staff at the Amala Spa were beyond any other. It was so relaxing my boyfriend and I had to come back and indulge in the Couples Fruit Ritual Massage which we highly recommend. The Amala exceeded any of our expectations for our first holiday together and made the experience truly unforgettable. If we ever decide to come back to Bali we will be for sure booking here again! We could not fault a single thing! ALSO, if you are a fan of pork ribs you must ask the manager about 'Naughty Nuri's'. We were skeptical after his recommendation but after we had them, they were the best pork ribs we have ever had. Thank you so much.
The Amala is a beautiful and relaxing hotel. The design and the indoor/outdoor rooms are just gorgeous. I loved lazing by our spa (more like a plunge pool as it was lovely and cool) and relaxing in the outdoor bath. If you wanted to spend the whole holiday in your villa you totally could! Our couples fruit ritual massage was lovely and relaxing. Love the flower bath. The indoor/outdoor nature of the rooms meant we had a visitor at night, rustling through our things and stealing our fruit! We told reception and they called pest control and we didn't have another issue. I'd advise not to keep any food in the room. When our self arranged tour didn't show up the staff went above and beyond to arrange a new tour. Thank you! It was a little taxi ride to the beach or into the parts of Seminyak where all the clubs and restaurants are ($3 if you book on the app); not right in the middle of things but cheap enough to taxi around! My only suggestions to the hotel: the hot water was a bit hit and miss and breakfast could be improved. All in all, a beautiful stay, lovely design, and superb value. Thank you for a relaxing break! Highly recommend.
Stayed at many villas in Bali, many times with big groups, but this time we went as a couple and found this gem. The amala has such friendly staff, well maintained grounds and a great spa. You can also request for private yoga instructors at their yoga room. The location is walkable to shopping streets but is away from the hustle and bustle. Hotel also offers free car service to take you around the area. Such a great choice for couples looking for a good balance of city and relaxation!
