The Amala


“The Amala is a holistic and tranquil sanctuary only minutes from Seminyak”

Just a 10 minute walk from Oberoi Street in Seminyak, The Amala (click here) is home to a holistic and tranquil sanctuary completely surrounded by lush tropical gardens.

Entry To The Amala

Check’n In

As we drove down the bamboo lined driveway the soft approaching sound of flowing water  instantly relaxes guests . The boutique villas main focus is to provide “a relaxing space for couples to escape the outside world, rejuvenate and reconnect with each other”.

The Room

Our Room Number 9
Welcome

Our pool villa was set to the back of the hotel. The villa consisted of an outdoor lounge area, dining table and fully equipped kitchen which took up one side of the open air thatched roof.

The other half was a private dipping pool that was shaded by a fragrant frangipani trees and had a big water feature.

Towards the back of the villa is the bedroom. The bedroom itself was reasonably comfy, with bi-fold doors that open out directly onto the pool.

To its side is a semi-detached dark concrete and stone bathroom that contrasts the white tiles and white walls of the villa. The bathroom was good in size and had a Jacuzzi smack bang in the middle with double vanity and rain shower

Food & Beverage

We only ate once at the villa and it wasn’t great (in my case dangerous, explained in ‘cons’). With Seminyak only a 5 minute walk we decided not to risk it again.

The Spa

The Spa at the Amala offers guests complete wellness packages that focuses on ancient Asian medicine and western holistic philosophies.

Pool & Gym

Each villa has its’ own private dipping pool. There is also a shallow lap pool in the middle of the hotel.

The Amala has a spacious wellness centre for yoga classes and other relaxing activities such as painting. Guests are invited to join the yoga masters in daily classes, which are also open to the public.

Pros:

  • The serenity of the open plan pool
  • Yoga classes

Cons:

  • No gym
  • Food wasn’t as good as expected and in my case dangerous**

 

**After a Spa treatment where lunch is included I ordered the Vichyssoise soup (a thick soup made of puréed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock) for my starter. I am anaphylactic to tuna, salmon and trout. So when my soup arrived I noticed it had something that looked like red capsicum in the middle. Having, re-read the menu and talking to the waitress on the day, neither said that there was any animal product (especially fish) in the dish whatsoever. I was still sceptical so I didn’t eat it. After my partner had finished his starter I asked if he could taste mine just for peace of mind and it turned out that it was indeed tuna. Luckily I stuck to my gut-feeling (pun intended) and didn’t eat it because the next post I would have been writing would have been from hospital!

The Amala

Overall:

Our stay at The Amala was very relaxing and a great place to unwind and still be so close to Seminyak.
