Stayed in this lovely villa for 2 weeks and it was pure bliss. The view from the balcony of the villa and from the pool is amazing overlooking the sea and occasionally spotting the dolphins swimming past. The villa itself was very tidy and clean and was just perfect. I especially loved the outdoor shower. We did a daily snorkel from the platform at the bottom of the steps which was fantastic and managed to spot a turtle and an array of beautiful fish. But I have to say the best part was sari and the staff. Her pancakes everymorning were the best. Can't wait to get back x
Aquamarine Seaview Villa is the middle villa in a 3 villa complex on the ocean side of the cliff road 300metres east of Blue Moon Villas, a perfect location just a few km east of the hustle bustle of central Amed, and 2km east of the best local restaurant, Sails (who offer a free pick up & drop off service - see separate review).
The 3 villas are 10-20 metres apart & comprise from west to east Batu Tangga, 3 bedrooms with own pool; then Aquamarine Seaview, 1 bedroom with own pool; then Aquamarine 2, 2 bedroom with own pool. While I believe they have the same one owner, they seem to be listed / promoted separately on Internet / tripadvisor / flipkey / booking.com
Aquamarine Seaview is virtually private, very comfortable, well equipped, great shady verandah, good bed, airconditioning, ceiling fans etc
The fridge was already stocked with iced water, bintang, some mixers and soft drinks but not tonic water.
Sari the manager & cook is fabulous & her menu & cooking excellent & very well priced. And she readily makes local arrangements such as in-house massage, restaurant bookings (Sails highly recommended), driver etc. Free wifi satisfactory but a little erratic for external reasons I think.
I think Aquamarine Seaview is absolutely the best of 3, but it depends on the size of your party and your privacy desires. Rowdy co-tenants could disturb the tranquility. And as previous reviewers have mentioned, some extra plantings / hedging just west of Aquamarine Seaview would ensure the privacy of its pool area.
Highly recommended, I would return.
