The title says it all! We were completely happy with our stay at Puri Wirata Dive Resort and Spa. though we just chose a standard room, it was huge, with a huge balcony as well, and had an incredible view of the beach and the ocean. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room meticulously clean and nicely laid out with a sofa and sitting area. The bathroom was also clean and enormous - although a bit dark for my taste - but the hot and powerful shower made up for the low light. And all of this was just the standard room! I can only imagine the level of luxury one would be getting in the more pricey bungalows. All of the accommodations were located in a very beautiful, lush, tiered garden landscape, with two lovely pools and a spa to delight in if you chose.
We did not partake in the spa, but we did do two dives with the resort's associated Bali Reef Divers, and that experience was also excellent. Jonathon, the dive shop manager, was both friendly and efficient, and he thoughtfully set us up with Cadek, an excellent instructor with keen attention to detail who understood where we were coming from as novice divers and gently but very effectively took us to the next level.
But the real hidden gem at Puri Wirata Resort is the restaurant. Over our three day stay in Amed, we chose to eat all our meals there, simply because the food was so incredibly good. And we have eaten many places in our travels! Putin Wirata will be remembered as one of the best.
We will definitely stay here I again if we return to Amed.

Amed is located on the more remote east coast of Bali and is relatively new to tourism. It is renowned for its diving sites - particularly the Liberty wreck dive site to the U.S. cargo transport ship that was torpedoed by the Japanese during the Second World War - as well as for its prolific colourful fishing boats; and its black sand beaches. …
During the evening’s performance we were introduced to the
local hooch, ‘Arak’ which is a coconut whiskey type of drink, suffice to say it
correlates entirely with the local brews that we’ve sampled thus far, gives you
a burn on the throat, a smile on your face and makes you very happy! Ha ha!

We are enjoying breakfast in the garden and chatting with Resty who offers to take us, together with another couple who are staying at the Resort, to the waterfalls at Rinjani Mountsin. We quickly say "Yes please". We depart at about 10:30 am and arrive at Pondok scenario Hotel, which is the mountain hotel we stayed at last time we were here! David did walk to these falls 2 years ago but is very pleased to be able to do it again and for me to be able to ...
... heck is that thing”. I’ve had a couple nibble on me… After my neighbor got attacked by that Trigger fish, I’m very careful. They said here, that getting attacked by a Trigger fish is so infrequent, but once in a while it does happen. I watch. Neighbors saw an octopus this morning…wish I was with them.
Bought some really cheap flip flops for the beach… guess what, I was snorkeling and they were gone. You never ...
... two and a half hours shivering with cold, eyes fixed on the swinging horizon (to prevent sea sickness) and holding my buttocks clenched - and also endeavoured to hold polite conversation with the team in between their various snorkelling sites. Bardy had a great time bobbing around in his Spider-man inflatable keeping a very close watch on uncle Neil to ensure he was well positioned to sit on his lap when back on the boat. Once back on dry land it was my turn to be confined to bed ...
