Amori Villa, Ubud
|80552, Ubud, Bali, Lesser Sunda Islands, INDONESIA.|
Description: Amori VillaAmori Villa is a luxury boutique spa resort with uninterrupted and relaxing views over the Petanu River valley. Amori offers peace and extra security by being out of the centre of Ubud but it is only a few minutes away by car. The spacious, well-appointed property has been built in the traditional style and is equally well suited to groups of 10-12 family or friends who want exclusive use of Amori Villa for a special holiday; honeymoon couples; or anyone wanting a few days or a week to just relax or to experience Ubud.
Amori Villa is designed for those who enjoy sitting and reading cooled by the mountain breezes of Ubud; getting tanned and healthy swimming in the 14 metre infinity pool; or going for a morning walk through the village and along the rice paddies, followed by a relaxing fresh fruit juice and cooked breakfast. Of course, Bali (and Ubud in particular) is famous for its spas and massages so when you stay at Amori you should expect to be pampered. At night, the chef will prepare a fabulous a la carte dinner. Or they will drive you to one of the excellent Ubud restaurants, and then pick you up afterwards.

How to get here: Head for Ubud, then Maya Ubud Resort. This large hotel is about 3kms on the East side of the centre of Ubud. At the east side of Ubud and north end of Peliatan there is a big statue at the junction of Jalan Raya Ubud and Tegalalang Road, with traffic lights. Take the smallest of the four road options here, heading East.
Follow this road past the Maya, go over one bridge and then turn right and the next T-junction, over another bridge. At the top of the hill go to the T-junction at Sala and turn right. When you reach the rice paddies turn right again and then follow the main road. This leads you into Banjar Dukuh Kawan. After one kilometre there is a 90 degree turn left. Don't turn! Go straight ahead down this access road which leads into Amori Villa.
Alternatively when you get to the Maya or when you are in the Dukuh area the driver can ask someone to point the way to Amori Villa.
