It's been a while since our last holiday, which included a whole lot of sightseeing. So the criterea set for this one was a week of rest and relaxation.
We fell in love with Bali during our last visit to Ubud, so we agreed on Seminyak, which is located just 15 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport. This area is known Bali's most exciting and exclusive address - a hearty mix of life and leisure.
After much research, we chose accommodation that was close to shopping and restaurants, so he booked us a villa at The Amala, located on Jalan Kunti. According to their website "in the ancient Sanskrit language, Amala means pure and unspoiled."

We stayed in one of their spa villas (there are a total of 6 one-bedroom villas), which included a jacuzzi and a shower / sauna, which can be scented with a selection of wild herbs. Along with the usual room facilities, you also get a selection of hand-made soaps made from wild herbs and a 24-hour butler service.
On arrival at The Amala, the check-in procedure was done in the comfort of our villa. Our Butler, Edy showed us around the villa, explaining how everything worked and even recommended which scent to use in the sauna.
You are presented with welcome drinks in your villa whilst you check-in.

The staff at The Amala treated us like "one of the family," from the moment we arrived right up to the day of our depature.
The staff are approachable and their knowledge of the area and where to eat and play is extensive, the recommendations they gave us did not dissappoint. They can do everything, from making dinner reservations to suggesting local information on shopping, beaches and activities.
