About this listing
WELCOME TO A NEW LUXURIOS PLACE WITH FAMILIAR ATHMOSPHERE IN AMED ON THE EAST COAST OF BALI
Picture to yourself a tropical paradise where you never feel cold. Imagine waking as the light increases outside the window of your luxury room, decorated with orchids and frangipani blossom. As you slide the window of your villa a gentle breeze creeps in, full of bird song at the scent of flowers. You gaze East towards the Island of Lombok across an azure rippling sea, where you can glide across the coral and view a multitude of fish, only metres from your villa. You sit on a chair, and take in the scene, or perhaps step down a few stairs to immerse yourself in the pool which is never cold. Afterwards, sip a blended fruit juice of mango, pineapple, papaya and mangosteen prepared by your own personal chef and maitre d'Kadek. You discuss with your friends and family your plans of the day, all of which will undoubtedly bring a feeling of relaxation and contentment.
BALI MARINA VILLA'S is a small Swiss-run complex of 3 luxury villas in Bunutan/Amed situated in the north east of Bali. The Amed area is often referred to as the "REAL" Bali. Only 2-3hours drive from Kuta and the Airport with several fast boats services to the Gili Islands and Lombok. Bunutan is also a great place to explore the area for diving, snorkelling, trekking, biking etc. Away from the mass tourism, you will find the original and authentic Bali with its unique culture and the traditional lifestyle of its local people.
In an area of modest beach hotels and small one storey villas, this property stands head and shoulders above any accommodation The small size of the development is in keeping with our philosophy a very personal and individualized holiday experience.
Each bedroom contains a beautiful hand-crafted teak four poster bed with mosquito net canopy if required. The floor is of teak. There is substantial hanging and cupboard space. The air-conditioning units is very modern and quiet. Behind this area a door leads to a beautiful bathroom with bath/toilet/shower. The detailing in clean stone work is attractive and there are substantial vanity mirrors, as well as further storage space. At the front of the villa a double glazed glass panelled sliding door with teak surround gives a beautiful view across to the sea, and outside there is a large veranda/sitting area.
The reception area with a small very cosy restaurant/warung at the foot of the garden is your welcome centre where you can leave your cases immediately adjacent to the beach road and parking bay. Steps lead 50 metres up the hillside through the imaginatively laid out gardens and their miniature rice terraces, the water gurgling from terrace to terrace, supplying the palms, bougainvillea and hibiskus and frangipani. As you reach the head of the garden two of the villa - VILLA "Hibiskus" and VILLA "Frangipani" are in front of you with a commanding Eastern view, and the crystal clear blue of the swimming pool invites immediate exploration and a chance to relax after your journey.

Other important information:
Bali Marina Villa's is not suitable for children under 5 and regrettably we do not have disabled access because of the stunning location on a slope which gives such a panoramic view of the sea. Please note that the swimming pools are unguarded.
Wonderful experience with my family! The villa is great: clean, spacious and very convenient. The service is excellent. We had dinner there everyday because it is so convenient and good. The snorkeling in front of the villa is also good. I'll come back for sure!
Marina Bali Villas in Amed was a lovely place with the friendliest staff. Very understanding of all our needs. The place had an amazing veiw an the sccoters we hired were perfect for riding around the beautiful places of Amed. Very peaceful place, had the most incredibke view of sunset on the edge of a cliff approx 5 min ride from the villa. Great experience. Breakfast was ok, but would recommend finding other means of food around the area. Marina was very contactable, even so the staff were just great to deal with.
Coup de cœur pour la villa "bougainvilliers", beaux volumes, meublée avec goût et possédant une belle terrasse permettant de profiter des superbes couchers de soleil sur la mer. Staff très professionnel. Warungs sympa accessibles à pieds. A ne pas rater lors d'un séjour dans la région d'Amed! Xavier et la famille.
The service was excellent. Marina, Kadek, Aiyu and the team were so willingly to go the extra mile to make our stay wonderful -- from walking many steps uphill several times a day to serve us meals in our room, to cheerfully tending to our specific preferences. Marina was friendly and kind - we had wanted to go to Ubud to buy wood carvings but did not have time and Marina brought back a blue basket that we liked all the way from Ubud for us.
The food was amazing - we had different fish dishes in various styles. The spring rolls -- a dish we had tried many times in our home country Singapore -- also really surpassed expectations. We had read about the terrific food offered at Bali Marina Villas, and even then we are quite stunned at how good it was!
The villa itself was beautiful and full of wood, bright and in the day relaxing with plenty of space and different areas to chill out in. In the night, warm lights make for a cosy and romantic ambience. The washroom was quite luxurious and spacious, with a separate shower area that was open at the top so you can see the stars at night, and another area with a bathtub. There is air-conditioning in the four-poster bed bedroom. The place looks even better than in the photos.
On the whole, this is a splendid place and well worth the 3 hours drive from the Bali airport. We will be back again!
We absolutely loved Marina's villa. It actually looks much better in reality than on the pictures! The bed is a dreamy and the bathroom was the most beautiful bathroom we saw in Bali and we saw many nice hotels during our trip. The best part was that we got breakfast and dinner (delicious) at our own table in the villa! I felt totally at home. Also the sunrise from our balcony was breathtaking.
Airco worked very good. Staff was very friendly specially Marina who also gave us excellent tips for Bali.
Marina also arranged a driver who picked us up fron Ubud and also drove us around the area.
If you're planning on staying in Amed this is an excellent choice.
This villa is great, one of the best in Amed I would think! The view is first class, the master bedroom large and super nice. The second bedroom is more average but still very clean and comfortable. Only downside is that it's quite a lot of noise from scooters without mufflers (hot trend among Amed's teenagers), even at night. Amed's restaurant scene is not impressive but the staff at this villa has a new three item menu every night, served in the villa. It was by far the best food we had during our stay in Amed. The staff rented scooters to us (sorely needed in Amed) for a good price. If you're going to Amed don't hesitate, you probably won't find anything better.
Together with my wife we had a great time staying at Marina's place. We stayed there for 3 nights in the largest of the 3 villas. We were lucky enough to be the only guests at the time so we could also have the pool only to ourselves. The house is tastefully decorated, spacious and comfortable and the helpful staff made sure that we had a good time. Overall we would like to repeat this experience and would recommend it to anyone wanting to escape the crowds in Bali.
