My family and I booked honeymoon suite and family suite for 3 nights. It was pretty expensive (12 mil rupiah) but still on par with other seaside resorts I've ever been in. Amatoa was located on a secluded cliff facing Liukang Island. There's a private access the sea to go snorkeling, the underwater panorama wasn't as rich as Liukang Island...

The room is suitable for honeymoon. Private access to the beach which was very cute! You can enjoy swimming on the sea in the morning because the wave is quite low and slow. Reading by the pool is not an option on the day because the weather will be really hot. The breakfast options are limited, although I only ordered...

I have been there 2 times. Last time (2014) was nicer. Now, as everybody says, the view is amazing, but then nothing special. The personnel is lovely but the place seems not to be managed. 1st nobody cleaned the room (not acceptable), then the shower was not properly hooked, the WC water gun was old and "very bad looking", the...

1. The room is okay. I think Their furniture are old and not well maintained 2. The overall view is breathtaking 3. The restaurant is very poor. Not much option for the food. I was order spaghetti bolognaise, and it taste bad. 4. They have this kinda infinite swimming pool. Very nice.

The view from our room is amazing. This place has the best view in tanjung bira. The staff were friendly and nice. I suggest the hotel to put border around private room. Some guest still didn't notice that there is a private area in there. Bed sheet, towel, and room cleanliness need some improvement

The Lobby: Felt like those in Santorini with white stones and blue decorations (But everything else does not, only that tiny lobby..). The Room: The resort room is divided into 2 sections, the front rooms facing the pool & sea and the back room facing the sea but not direct from the sea and difficult to reach. To get to...

I was traveling with my brother and cousins last time and couldn't find any room for four people. There was only a room charged by USD 200 per night for 3, and since I have more people they charged me for it. This hotel doesn't provide any extra bed so it was so difficult for them to find one for...

We went with friends there after making our dive trip nearby. The view is good and the rooms are fine. We just spend 2 days there so do not ask for too much. I think the staff will need more training so as to understand the guests specific needs better.
