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. …
... to spy a warung over the road with a few people eating in. After stocking up with water and snacks, we hesitantly made our way over to the warung. A small family were busy away frying up rice and serving small plastic bags filled to the brim with noodle soup. We ordered nasi goreng (fried rice) and took a seat on some tiny plastic stalls. With some strange but friendly looks from the other customers, we sat patiently and smiled with assurance. It was clear the locals ...
... than we all anticipated, and all being competitive people, Chris initiated a race. Chris continued to win the race, but whilst showing off his efforts amusingly fell off his board and splashed into the sea. The sea was like glass – from the paddle board we could see the coral beneath us. It was unquestionably beautiful. Having given our arms and legs a good work out, we wandered along the beachfront in search of somewhere for lunch. Reasonably priced local food is always a ...
Breakfast was lovely this meowing sat out on the terrace, it's included in the price but you always usually get bread and jam. We had a few options but I opted for the banana pancake and Scott had the plain pancake with sugar and honey. So it was quite a nice surprise! It started us off right for our snorkelling trip. We went to the tour desk and fitted our flippers and waited for the captain to pick us up on his rounds of the tour operators. There were about 15 of us on a fairly ...
... time again and there is just enough time
to check how burnt we got in the sun before Sari prepares us another delicious
home cooked Indonesian meal, and we celebrate another brilliant day with a
bottle, or two or wine before retiring to the chill out area and taking the
occasional dip in the pool to cool off before bed.
As we are being so spoilt with this luxurious villa it is
hard to drag ourselves away, but we have managed to venture out and explore ...
