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. …
... we spent two very sweaty hours what can only he described as snorkelling from the boat. We crashed only once and narrowly avoided running some real snorkellers over in a desperate attempt to spot the turtle they had kindly alerted us to. We caught a glimpse of the little guy as he swam under the boat but sadly weren't quick enough to capture the moment on film. Having packed for this trip with a New Zealand winter in mind we didn't have ...
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!
Made, the other main staff member here drank with us and in fact stayed with us
until the next day drinking this stuff; ...
... including ourselves we can always adapt to circumstances and surroundings. Racky came out of the water with the biggest grin and I knew straight away that she had swum with one, it's a very spiritual experience. We walked all the way round stopping for a beer in one place then lunch in another. It made us laugh how there was a building like a small bungalow which was a police station and opposite was a reggae bar with a massive sign saying 'MUSHROOMS' ...
Up at stupid o'clock 3.30am to get 6am flight well so we thought It took five mins literally to get to airport and the flight now scheduled for 6.35 thanks air asia for not telling us! Anyhow on board now updating this and trying to get some sleep if the bloody idiot in front stops snoring the same one who stood up one minute into ascent Jesus some people need to be put down. I think as the trip goes on I realise a deserted desert island may well be my natural ...
