The hotel is a quiet resort consisting of bungalows scattered through a lush green park. With about 35 bungalows, economy-rooms and villas the resort is a small one - but that's probably one reason it's such a fine place. Service included breakfast (07-11), half board or full board. Breakfast was a varied buffet, fully stocked to everybody's taste. Lunch and dinner are á la carte. Food was very good. While I was there guests were mostly middle European (German, Swiss, Belgian) grownups. It's probably not ideally suited for children - especially small children - since it's built to divers' needs. read hotel review

    I picked an economy room (Losmen), which was a very good choice. It had the right size and a small terrace out front. It was comfortably furnished by a boxspring bed, had a room safe and air conditioning. The only thing I sometimes noticed during the night was the refrigerator working. The fridge is stocked with drinks, soft drinks, wine, beer and snacks. The room was clean and well maintained. The furniture is sturdy and simple.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    There's a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner; and a bar at the reception that serves drinks. Cuisine was a combination of european and indonesian/ balinesian dishes. Generally it was very good. Breakfast held a variety of choices for every taste. Even sausages & cheeses were good (which is not always a given in asian countries). fruit, of course, was a delight. dinner was á la carte from a menu that kept me occupied for three weeks. also there's specialty events three times a week (sunday "Bali day", tuesday bbq, friday "pizza night"). The restaurant was always clean, atmosphere nice and relaxed. Since everyone I met there stayed at the hotel nobody paid cash but everything was charged to the rooms and you paid it at the end of the stay. At the reception there's a box for tipping, the tips get shared by everybody who works there from the kitchen help to the gardener to the diving guide.

    The resort is on the quiet side of Bali. When they pick you up at the airport you have about three hours' drive before you during which you visibly leave the hustle and bustle of the city life behind you. The area of the hotel is quiet - on any given day the loudest thing you hear are the waves. Ok, there's the song of birds to go along with that & the wind sometimes rustles through the palm trees. But there's a blissfull absence of animation, loud music, streetnoise, ... The area around the hotel is a sort of small street village. Like most of these places in Asian countries it can be a bit of a shock to European sensibilities and attitudes. The Alam Anda is not the place you go to when you want to go on a holiday shopping spree. You can go on several land-bound excursions to cultural and touristic highlights. But the main reason to come to the Alam Anda is diving.

  • Sport & Leisure
    6.0

    The Alam Anda offers one main sports activity: diving. First class diving. Whatever you need - the diving base can provide it. And they will do it with a smile. In addition to a very nice house reef there are about ten local divesites. Twice a day a boat goes there. The crew and the diveguides are very helpful and very good, the dive sites even better. There's so much to see that one dive per site does not do them justice. You can also go to several day trips (about a dozen) to other places. There's two dives on the trip. My personal favourites are Seraya (a fine spot even when the sea's rough) and - of course - the wreck of the Liberty (tulamben). And - also of course - you don't wanna miss the Mantas sailing around you on Manta Point. I was there for three weeks and I could not visit all the divsites - so you quite surely won't get bored... There's a nice little pool by the restaurant. It offers a great view of the sea and there's several nooks where you can sit on benches in the water & chat or enjoy something to drink. The resort offers no entertainment, kids' club, disco or stuff like that - and that's fine. It's one of the things that makes the Alam Anda a great place to stay. If you want an entertainment dominated holiday, the south side of Bali is the better choice. The "entertainment" here is diving & going to the spa - which is something you definitely should do. Internet access is possible via w-lan, works fast & frictionless. There's a very nice beachside with loungers, sunshades and palm trees running nearly the whole frontside (about 400 meters). You can go down to the sea via a few steps, but there's no sandy beach area.

    If there is a place where the staff is friendlier I just haven't been there yet. They care for you, they help, they recognize you and remember what you like or need. And you get the impression they enjoy their jobs. Everyone I spoke to had passing or good knowledge of English. Some also tried a smatter of German or Italian - and were far better than most of our tries of Balinese. ;-) Room cleaning was quick, efficient and thorough. The economy-room I stayed in was clean and well maintained. Answer to requests was prompt and helpful. What I heard from other guests this is also a given in the bungalows & villas.
