The Amala is a collection of adult-only luxury villas and spa in Seminyak, the spa capital of Bali. With a sophisticated Asian style, the Amala villas have a distinct atmosphere of peace and tranquillity; flowing white materials, wide open spaces, private pools and luxurious bedrooms provide a haven of calm perfect for a romantic getaway or simply a well-deserved pampering treat.
In keeping with the harmonious ethos of Amala, they have an eco-friendly approach using an environmentally sustainable pool filtration system, solar panels for electricity and recycling systems for watering the gardens, and locally-sourced natural materials have been used throughout such as Bandung marble. For those who can tear themselves away, the buzzing nightlife, cafes and shops of Seminyak are just a short walk from the villas as well as Seminyak's beautiful sandy beaches.
To complement the healthy ethos of The Amala, the Bamboo Restaurant has a healthy menu to boot, with organic products and raw ingredients when possible so that guests will get all of the nutrients & vitamins they need to start to feel that healthy glow. The menu comprises of dishes from Indonesia, Southeast Asia and the West, all nutrition packed and tasty. You're given all details of your meals including calories, cholesterol and other important dietary factors so you can eat to suit your own needs and the menu is packed full of healthy juices & mocktails, and if you wish, alcoholic drinks are available, all served from the pretty patio by the pool or in-room.
