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. …
... smattering of Bahasa Indonesian. We were taught the Lombok Handshake and were required to use it whenever we met. The pool was our base. Strategically positioned on lounges near the walkway to the bar. We only needed to gesture to be well served with Bintang' and delicious hot snacks. Frequent dips in the freshwater infinite pool were required to fend of the heat. Thunder storms rolled in from the mountains, and despite assurances from the staff that it would not rain, we got ...
... our little white lies of late,
and explained that Eugene had arranged for us to surprise Jess as part of their
engagement holiday, and that we couldn’t be happier to see them both, plus to
be the first to congratulate them in person, and of course to share in this
amazing place for the next couple of weeks. With the pop of champagne corks,
and a tour of the villa the catching up and laughs and love began. We spent the
first few hours swapping tales of ...

For the next hour and a half, I had the most amazing experience. I swam with him, watching him the whole time, usually only two to three feet away, as we slowly made our way down the shoreline. He was aware I was with him the entire time - he had to be, I was so close - but he didn't care. After a while, I thought I'd try touching him to see what would happen, so I gently put my hand on the back of his shell. It didn't bother him at all - ...
... me…It was Kitook, and his wife, Kitook…. Such wonderful people. He was my dive master and she runs a little restaurant across from us…(as well as books trips, helps carry baggage from the boats etc) What a nice couple- they were walking by and saw me and just stopped to chat and say good morning. Makes you feel very special.
Washed our clothes last night… 3 days ...
