More on Amed

GaneshAmed sits towards the western end of Jemeluk and offers a range of options from fan-cooled smaller budget rooms towards the rear of the grounds through to larger air-con rooms in free-standing two-storey bungalows.

Travelfish says:

The bungalow rooms are the better deal. They’re quite spacious, with good size decks (ours comfortably fitted two deckchairs and a table setting), air-con rooms of a decent size with a fridge and with oversized bathrooms, but they’re still a bit thrown together and curious. Our bathroom for example had very difficult to manage hot and cold water (scalding one second, freezing the next) and a large open window (ie a hole) in the wall that opened onto the stairs to the upstairs room -- not a great privacy (nor security) feature. We’d recommend going for an upstairs room, which are priced the same as the ground ones, partly so you could wave to your neighbours when they’re in the shower (well, almost), but also for the superior views of the surrounds. There’s a swimming pool overlooking the sea (with a small kid’s section) and plenty of deckchairs set looking out to the ocean. The small cafe is also by the sea. The fare is simple and affordable, but we got the feeling they would have liked us to eat there more than we actually did -- the staff here swing between very friendly and markedly less so. Overall by Amed bungalow standards this is pretty standard fare, but you can spend just 100,000 more and get into the memorable Pondok Laut a couple of doors down (as we did!) There’s also a good used bookshop on site.
