The fishing village of Amed, located along the eastern shores of Bali is about a two and a half hours’ drive from the airport. The ride from south Bali is incredibly scenic, offering views out to lush landscapes, rice fields and traditional villages. The picture-perfect coastal scenery, combined with a laidback pace of life makes Amed a great place for a relaxed getaway. Your Amed villa comes equipped with a full range of modern amenities, spacious garden with private pool and beautiful views out to the surrounding coasts or tropical greenery. Your villa’s serene ambience and sense of privacy, along with impeccable housekeeping service facilitates rest and relaxation. All your holiday needs - from arranging transport for travel, to cooking and laundry - are handled by the staff, so you won’t have to life a single finger through your stay. Amed is best known for its excellent dive sites: within the vicinity are Uyah Reef and Jemeluk Reef at Jemeluk Bay, as well as Bunutan Reef and Lipah Reef further down along the coast. These dive sites are located about an eight to 10-minute drive from your villa. Or travel further out to Tulamben (a 20-minute drive away), where you’ll find renowned sites like the USS Liberty Wreck, ‘Drop Off’ and Paradise Reef. Looking to try a new underwater activity? Give freediving a go by trying out the basic courses offered at Apneista. Or chill out and soak up the region’s easygoing vibes - spend your mornings lounging lazily by the pool, enjoy a massage in your villa or stretch it out on a yoga mat along the beach. Group classes are conducted at yoga studios like Amed Yoga Shala or Apneista, but if you prefer the privacy and level of instruction of a one-to-one session, your villa manager will readily assist with engaging a yoga instructor for a class at your villa. Amed makes a great base for day trips out to attractions located in the eastern and central regions of Bali. The expansive Bersakih Temple complex and majestic Mt. Agung takes a drive of about an hour and a half from your villa, while the beautiful Tirta Gangga water palace is located a 40-minute drive away. The cultural town of Ubud, home to lush rice fields, organic cafes and arts and crafts stores is a two and a half hours’ ride from your villa.
