Good quality on the beach
Kadek Homestay has a cluster of rooms right on the beachfront at Amed, set between Volcano Beach to the west and Amed Bulih and Lily Amed to the east.
Most of the rooms are single storey but there is also one two-storey building within the compound. The setting is compact with the clean rooms organised around a small common garden. There’s no restaurant on site -- nor really a reception, save the slight warung on the road through Amed village. Rooms are air-con, also with fan and have complimentary WiFi. Breakfast is also included on the deck outside each room. Pricewise, this is better value than nearby Volcano Beach, but we preferred the vibe at the latter as it has fewer rooms sharing a similar amount of space. Nevertheless this is a solid flashpacker option for the immediate Amed area. The entrepreneurial owner is a friendly guy and will do his best to try to arrange just about any tourist related service you can imagine.
