Born from a partnership based on diving and love for the ocean, Philippe and Mario decided to build the ultimate family resort. Based on the idea that a hotel room should feel like a home away from home, with all its familiarity and warmth, it still has the luxuries of a five star hotel.
Kelapa Cottage boasts the most luxurious dormitory you have ever seen, along with some seriously high class private rooms and super charming Joglo-style cottages set back in a lush garden. All rooms have air-con, an open-air bathroom and Wi-Fi.
The coolest pool in Amed is conveniently placed in the middle of the garden and is great for entertaining kids, for cooling down on a hot day, for try dives and for romantic poolside dinners during Bali’s warm evenings.
The Leaf & Life restaurant is Philippe’s baby and is one of the few mainly organic, healthy kitchens on this side of the island. He knows how to mix healthy with tasty, how to fuse different foods together and the result is Italian/French/Balinese fusion with a Lebanese touch, some of the world’s best cuisines come together. Most dishes are also available in a vegetarian or vegan version, all of them guilt-free and all the tastier for it.
Aura Spa is your one-stop-shop for all things massage, beautifying and relaxing. Talented massage-therapists and beauticians will be available for all your spoiling needs during your stay.
Kelapa Cottage is located in the jungle at the foot of a hill just outside Amed, on the east coast of Bali. The ocean is about a ten-minute walk or a two-minute scooter-ride away. Amed itself is a quiet little town, with lots of charming restaurants, warungs (local eateries), cafés with healthy and unhealthy food, a few mobile food carts and heaps of small and slightly bigger shops and supermarkets.
The main activities in Amed are scuba diving, free diving and some trekking and yoga. The famous water palace Tirta Gangga is a 30-minute drive away and many other Bali highlights can be visited on day trips. This is also the place to catch a boat to the famous Gili islands. Amed is located 68 kilometers from Ngurah Rai Airport in Denpasar, which is a drive between 2,5 to 4 hours, depending on traffic.
