Airconditioned cottage-style room with ensuite toilet and hot water shower and a large balcony overlooking the ocean.

The Space

Ganesha Cottage has one large fully air-conditioned bedroom with a large double door leading out to a spacious balcony which overlooks the ocean and gardens.
The room has a large Kingsize bed with a large mosquito net hanging from the alang-alang roof.
There is an ensuite toilet and shower with hot/cold water. The room also has a small fridge.
Next door is another cottage (Faery Garden Cottage) with 1 bedroom and a bathroom and its own large balcony and a daybed. The 2 cottages can be rented together and are ideal for a family. To find details of the other cottage, go to https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/1176204

***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.

  • Отличное место для отдыха в Амеде. Мне есть с чем сравнивать, я пробовал и аналогичные по цене места и более дорогие, но такого практически домашнего комфорта нет нигде! Комнаты не очень большие, но на террасе есть еще одна кровать с балдахином, на которой постоянно кто нибудь из нас спал, гораздо комфортней чем под кондером в комнате.
    С террасы хорошо видно море и шум волн особенно ночью хорошо слышен.
    Персонал очень заботлив и не предлагает никаких ненужных услуг. Чаевые оставленные пару раз в номере не берут пробовал и 50 и 100 тыс оставлять.
    Территория обустроена с любовью и везде чувствуется рука человека, для которого это скорее хобби чем бизнес. Всего там кстати 4 домика, но кроме нас был заселен только один и это в высокий июльский сезон. Обслуги больше чем гостей! Убирались каждый день. Постоянно свежие чайные принадлежности и кипяток в термосе. Бассейн только построен и все в нем отлично.
    Прям в отеле сняли байк за 50 тыс в день. И когда было лень 10 минут пройтись до лучшего в округе пляжа с отличным рифом то ездили на байке. Кстати для жителей Ом Шанти в отеле Блю Стар лежаки и зонты бесплатны. Там и кафехи на берегу отличные и прокат снаряжения для ныряния.
    На територии отельчика есть и спа и массаж. Цены в среднем 120 в час. Лаундри копеечное, ресторанчик тоже недорогой. Во всяком случае греческий салат мы только там нормальный нашли )))
    В общем приезжайте не пожалеете!

  • The cottage was beautiful. Up in the hills of Amed, we had a beautiful sunrise every morning. I saw how others posted the delicious pancakes, and they were indeed a delight.

    Iluh was amazing. She was very nice, and even gave us a tour of Amed for a day and showed us some great snorkeling areas.

    The staff were lovely, the food was delicious, and the cottage was massive.

    We hope to return to Amed again someday, and would love to stay here again.

  • Barb is a great host - she answered all my questions promptly and was very helpful. She organised for me to be picked up from the airport, and as I exited customs, there was a gentleman holding up a sign with my name. We arrived at Om Shanti at midnight, and there were two guys there to greet me and carry my bags up to the villa. Didn't really know where i was, just climbed the stone steps, and pretty much went directly to sleep. Woke up to see the sun rise over the water, from the deck of the villa. Stunning - and what a welcome. The villa was perfect for my needs, which was as a writer's retreat - and with a deck for yoga. But there were also the benefits of a guesthouse - decent food at the restaurant, room cleaned every day and friendly and attentive staff - even a spa with two excellent masseuses. I felt safe and well looked after. A ten minute walk north is a black pebble beach - Jemeluk Bay - with the most fabulous reef for snorkeling that I've ever seen. It was a very special stay, and I look forward to returning. Thanks Barb, and Iluh, Wayan, Made and all the staff at Om Shanti.

  • We were lucky to spend New Year at Om shanti and are so pleased we did? Om shanti is a lovely retreat where I practised yoga on a daily basis with a local yoga teacher. It's in a great position with local warungs in walking distance serving really good food. Iluh took great care of us and provided hot water for coffee and tea every morning and cooked a lovely breakfast every morning for us.
    It's great snorkelling near by and a lovely drive to Amed through the paddy fields.
    We will be back to Om shanti in the future I am sure.

  • Charming place. Lovely people. Beautiful location. Well placed away from the crowds but close enough if you want them. Sincere, friendly and very helpful owner went out of her way to provide additional support and personalised experience for us and our situation.

  • 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).
