When you think of Seminyak, ‘quite oasis’ isn’t quite the first thing that comes to mind, but The Amala seems to have mastered it quite well…
Standing at the top of the driveway of The Amala, just a few steps away from busy Sunset Road, the familiar sounds of Seminyak were almost deafening. Yep, there was absolutely no denying that we were to be staying in the heart of Bali’s trendy Seminyak region once again. Although it was a noisy first impression (yes, I did panic that I had made the wrong decision for Kevin and I), The Amala’s boutique residence ended up being nothing like what the scene at the end of the driveway may have eluded to.
This little urban oasis was relaxing, quiet, and 100% kid free.
The Amala delivered that lush ‘resort feel’ without being too far from all of the action in Seminyak – a perfect compromise for pool loving me, and nightlife loving Kevin (who am I kidding… and me!).
With almost zero reason to leave our spacious spa villa, it was little wonder that we felt like we were the only guests while we were at The Amala. If we were barely leaving our room, then it is safe to assume that neither were the other guests! When our a la carte breakfast could be enjoyed from the comfort of our room (delivered, of course), and our villa came equipped with it’s own plunge pool, can you blame us for not spending too much time utilising the common areas? To be honest, the only time we did leave our spa villa was to go and experience what else Seminyak had to offer, and to check in to our day spa appointment!
If you too have a hard time making a decision between a tranquil getaway, or being a part of the action, then The Amala is your answer. The convenience of having a peaceful oasis on the fringe of all of the action is just too good to go past…
