Blue Star

Cute and comfortable

More on Amed

The star may be blue, but the main two-storey building here is lime green, with a cluster of simple but clean rooms at similar prices to the offbeach ones at neighbouring Villa Coral.

Travelfish says:

The rooms in the green building are fair sized, tiled throughout, with air-con, WiFi, hot water bathrooms and a wooden four-poster bed with a decorative spread (and a mosquito net) -- the upper floor attracts a 50,000 rupiah premium which we’d say is worthwhile for the view. You can pay 100,000 rupiah more still for a freestanding room -- we were unable to see because it was occupied. The location is great -- right on the beachfront with the coral garden right offshore, but bear in mind the beach here can get very busy with snorkellers and divers, plus you’re not far from where the Gili fastboats anchor. The beachside restaurant is cute and the grounds compact but pretty. Staff approachable. Not a bad beachfront option. If full, consider neighbouring Beten Enjung or Ombak, both of which offer similar fare at similar rates.
