***Our new pool is now complete and open for your enjoyment!!***

The Amed coastline is fringed by coral reef, making this a wonderful place for snorkelling and scuba diving. The calm bays are perfect for swimming.

Only 300 metres North, along the road is Jemeluk Bay, one of the nicest spots for swimming & snorkelling. Stop at the top of the hill for a view of Mount Agung and the coral reef through the clear waters of the Bay. At the bottom of the hill, turn into the driveway of Blue Star and Villa Coral. You can leave your belongings with the staff at Blue Star while you go into the water. Snorkel close to shore on the flat coral or venture out to the headland for some spectacular “bommies” and large schools of fish. Have lunch at Blue Star Café right on the beach.

Across the road from the cottage you will find a pathway to the rocky shoreline of Bunutan Beach. Just offshore is the reef, which stretches a kilometre, so you can swim for an hour or more and see a variety of different coral formations and types of fish, with many lovely surprises along the way
There are many attractions within a short drive of the property: Tirta Gangga Water Palace, Lempuyang Mountain and Temple, Besakih Temple, the Sacred Springs and Les Waterfall. Also, you can go fishing with a local fisherman (ask about Nengah or his brother) or go on a trek in the hills behind here with a local girl (Wayan from Blue Star) to her family home for a traditional Balinese lunch. You will not have time to do everything you want to!
There are full time staff on hand for all of your needs. We also have a restaurant with delicious meals and special healing Jamu and other health teas and drinks.
Our new Lotus healing Spa offers a range of massages, pedicure/manicure and facials.
Included in the price: daily breakfast, spring water, thermos of hot water for tea and coffee throughout the day, daily room cleaning and weekly change of sheets. Also, free WiFi.The WiFi is not adsl but rather, wireless and is as good as anywhere in rural Bali. You are not able to do large downloads, but it's good for net surfing, email and (website hidden).

Beautiful views, clear starry night skies, warm climate all year, clear ocean for swimming and snorkeling.
The cottages are situated on a hillside across from the ocean and there are many steps to climb up to each room. Quite easy for average fitness level, however if you have problems climbing stairs, this may be a problem for you.

The Neighborhood

The area called Amed is actually a long stretch of road that encompasses many smaller villages. We are located in the village of Bunutan and are right on the border of Jemeluk. Behind our property is a terraced hill farmed by local families. You can walk the path up this hill and pass many small homes of local Balinese. It is a safe area of Bali and the people are friendly and curious about visiters. Most cannot speak English unless they work in one of the tourist places, so just wave and say "hello."
You can walk along the main road to Jemeluk (about 10 minutes) and then a bit further to the village of Amed (another 5 to 10 minutes). The best bay for swimming is at Jemeluk. We offer a free driving service to Jemeluk if you want to go there for a few hours.
We also have a long stretch of beach right across the road. It's mostly rocky, but is nice for an afternoon wander. The coral is not far offshore and there are many fishes. None of Amed's beaches are sandy and white....they all have rocks and/or black volcanic sand. The coral makes up for the lack of tropical beaches.

Getting around

We have a large parking area near the road. We have motorscooters for rent and also some of our staff can drive you to places around Amed for a small fee. Walking is easy and there are many cafes and beaches close by. About 15 minutes by foot is a small supermarket/shop that stocks many Western products including cheese, cereals, milk, bread and wine (try Plaga Rose for a really nice cheaper local wine). If you don't want to walk, staff will be happy to drive you there and help you with groceries. There is a small local market near the supermarket, but you have to go early in the morning. Ask staff about it.

  • I spend two nights at OM Shanti and found it a pleasant place to stay. It's well located, up the hill a bit from Jemeluk Bay and so out of the main tourist strip. This may be a minor issue if you don't have your own transport. Jemeluk Bay itself is lovely with great snorkelling.

    The cottages are simple but new and well looked after. They actually look much better in the flesh than in the online photos, and the price for Amed was reasonable.

    I didn't meet Barb but the managers of the property were lovely people and most helpful.

    I'd consider staying here again if I was in the area.

About
I'm from Australia and love travelling. I especially love wandering the back streets of towns and villages to get a feel for a place and the people. I am not into big touristy towns, much prefering the quaint, out of the way places where I can connect with local people. I love yoga, meditation, reading, writing guided meditations, going on walks along a beach or in the forest, swimming and snorkeling, tending a garden, and spending time with family and friends over a coffee or meal. Bali is my second home. Actually it's my 3rd home. I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada (1st home), left to travel in 1979 and settled in Brisbane, Australia (2nd home) and then discovered Bali in 2009 and created a beautiful meditation/yoga home there (3rd home).
