Our names are Ellen and Uwe Siegfriedsen and we come from North Friesland (Nordfriesland) Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. You may ask how do two North Fresians end up in Bali, well that’s a long story: Thailand, Malaysia, India, The Philippines and Indonesia – all magical countries through which I (Uwe) travelled. In 1984 I finally came to rest in the place that I found the most beautiful and that was Bali. Where else in this world can you find so much to impress within such a small space? A climate like in paradise, unbelievably luscious vegetation, tropical sea with approx. 400 km of beaches and cliff coast, volcanoes, mountains, rice fields, temples, culture… and such lovely people.
At that time as a connoisseur of Bali I established a little travel agency alongside my professional activities in Germany. Many guests have been able to realise their dream holiday on Bali and the neighbouring islands.
In my capacity as interior designer I simultaneously made use of the exceptionally good opportunity of building dream houses. Houses for my family, our friends and for people who prefer individual solutions rather than high-rise dormitory hotels. In 1993 as a sort of "pioneer" I established the hotel Alam Anda on the northern coast. Later the villas Nyumpené, Kura Kura, Ambu Ambu and Lumba Lumba were added. Very many dear and lovely guests have spent a wonderful holiday here.
After transfering the Hotel Alam Anda on 1st April, 2006 we still remain in charge of both the villas Nyumpené and Kura Kura.
