Our favourite rooms

Bali meets Morocco in these breezy pavilions, where cool stone and exposed timbers are offset by lavish fabrics and candle-lit lanterns. The open-plan living areas with gourmet kitchens, spa-style bathrooms and bedrooms with king-size platform beds are grouped around a generous central pool. Premier Villas are perfectly suited to honeymooners; plump for an Imperial Villa if you're after extra space.


No need to jump out of bed to bag the best poolside spot here... At the heart of each villa lies your very own aquamarine swimming pool, surrounded by a lounger-topped sundeck and tropical gardens.

Packing tips

From beach bags to bug spray, you'll want for nothing at Ametis Villa. Pack light and save space in your bag for all the booty you'll score on Seminyak shopping trips.


Book a couple's treatment room at Ruby Spa for a pampering session à deux.


Ametis Villa is only suitable for children aged 12 and up.

Worth getting out of bed for

If you tire of lounging by the pool or exhaust your supply of 250 films, Ametis can hook you up with a host of activities, including surfing sessions, sailing, scuba diving, white-water rafting, horseriding and elephant safaris. That ought to keep you occupied for a while...


Food lovers, jump on board the market tour and cooking class. Seek out fresh produce with the hotel's chef, then whip up an Indonesian meal back at your villa. Don't fancy manning the pans yourself? Have staff arrange a romantic picnic lunch for two on Canggu Beach. 


Local restaurants

For flavour-packed breakfasts and zesty Asian salads, head to OM Beach Lounge Restaurant on Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong (+62 (0)361 960 4121), where banana pancakes and Thai beef salads are served in a bright and breezy cabana by the sea.


In nearby Seminyak, Métis Restaurant (Jalan Kayu Aya; +62 (0)361 736 969) is an elegant indoor-outdoor eatery with French-Mediterranean flair. 

Local bars

Seminyak party spot Ku Dé Ta (Jalan Kayu Aya 9, Seminyak; +62 (361) 736 969) continues to draw the cool kids to its beachfront locale for cocktails, dance tunes and seriously good grub, such as seared baby lobster and wagyu short ribs in bordelaise sauce. 


Close by, Potato Head Beach Club (Jalan Petitenget; +62 (361) 473 7979) is a breezy restaurant/bar, with palm-dotted lawns and an infinity pool leading down to the ocean. The standout feature is a curvaceous ampitheatre crafted from hundreds of 18th-century teak shutters. 

Local cafés

Holidaying Aussies will now find a familiar face on the Canggu café scene. From the team behind Sydney's Deus ex Machina comes Deus Bali (Jalan Batu Balong; +62 (361) 368 3385), delivering knockout coffee and delicious Thai snacks. Action junkies can also score a new surfboard or custom-made motorbike at this hip hangout, dubbed the Temple of Enthusiasm.

Ametis Villa

Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong, Canggu - Kuta, Bali, Indonesia, Bali, 80361

Ametis Villa is located in the sleepy coastal village of Canggu, a 20-minute drive from the bars and boutiques of Seminyak.


South of capital Denpasar, Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport ( is served by carriers including Garuda, Singapore Airlines, Jetstar, Air Asia and JAL. You can buy a Visa on Arrival, if required, which costs US$25 for 30 days payable in cash. Private car transfers for the 45-minute drive north-west to the hotel are included in the room rate.


Tackling Bali's bumpy, traffic-thronged roads isn't for the faint-hearted. If you plan to go exploring, ask the hotel to arrange a chauffeur-driven car for you.


Helicopter transfers from Bali's airport to the hotel can be arranged at additional cost.

Ametis Villa

From Berlin to Bali...

Berlin is cool, as everyone knows by now. You can party for three days in a row in endless underground clubs and bars. Loads of artists and creatives from all over the world call the city home. It’s rough, it’s dirty, it’s real. But what if you want nice? You go to Bali – and not anywhere in Bali, but to Ametis Villa.

Ametis Villa is the ideal escape. Located in the lovely coastal area of Canggu, near Seminyak, it is the exact opposite of Berlin: it’s perfect. Unimposing from the outside, it’s immediately obvious that this is not your average Balinese hotel. Arriving at the car park we’re welcomed by a small, kind Indonesian man who accompanies us to the reception. Rather than typical rooms, the retreat offers a collection of exclusive villa compounds designed with the highest standards of luxury and quality.

First up, we’re assigned a butler who is at our service 24/7. His name is Wadu and he greets us with a big smile. Speaking faultless English, he guides us through the property’s paths, decorated with beautiful flowers and surrounded by bamboo trees. Once in a while we spy big, gleaming wooden doors, which we assume are the entrances to the different villas.

Finally, we reach our own private paradise and the wooden door to our exclusive sanctuary swings open. We walk down a little track until we see an airy house, at least six metres high, with a generous veranda. There’s a large modern open kitchen and a lounge equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system and TV. Wood meets marble in the sleek interiors, which feel like one of those house shoots that you’d usually only see in design magazines such as Architectural Digest or Wallpaper. Right in front of the kitchen and living area is a huge pool furnished with Dedon loungers. Behind it we check out the chic master bedroom that’s the ultimate in indulgence; large floor-to-ceiling windows, a marble bathroom equipped with a big tub overlooking the pool and an outdoor shower where you can look out at the stars. It feels bizarre to be here. It’s just too idyllic. So not Berlin!

You know when you visit nice hotels and restaurants and you’re really impressed by the interior, but you always find something that you would have done differently? Well, not in this case. We try really hard to spot something that we can complain about (it’s a German thing I guess), but design-wise it’s a dream. Every little detail is just right and so well implemented. Ametis Villa is the kind of place that you don’t want to leave.

Bali boasts so much to see, from culture to nature, but for us being there meant an escape from everyday life. An escape from society. A holiday from worries. The service is as splendid as the wide array of food on offer. We even receive our favorite daily German newspaper with our names on it every morning.

The only surreal moment in our serene stay is when I have my celebrity moment. Passing reception one day I have a chat with the hotel manager who kindly explains the whole history and concept of Ametis Villa. At the end of our conversation, she hesitates but then says, ‘Sorry to ask, but are you Cash Warren?’
‘Cash Warren?,’ I respond, ‘Who is Cash Warren?’
‘Jessica Alba’s boyfriend!,’ she replies.

Damn, I should have gone for it, I think to myself. There are worse things in life than being Jessica Alba’s boyfriend I guess. Unfortunately, I have to disappoint her, but luckily she did still talk to me afterwards.

The last word in charm, Ametis Villa is a private paradise for people who appreciate design and a certain way of living. It delivers complete comfort, but in such a way that you don’t feel like you’re at home but rather that you’re experiencing a lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of – albeit one you perhaps can’t find in edgier-than-thou Berlin...

The Guestbook

Whenever you book a stay at a Smith hotel with us, we'll invite you to review it when you get back. Read what other Smith members have to say about Ametis Villa in the Guestbook below…


Stayed on

We loved

Butler service, peace and quiet, private space, drop offs/pickups to and from Seminyak all included, plus small things like tea time, sunset cocktails, free soft drinks and water in the fridge. Easy walk to variety of restaurants and a nearby beach.

Don’t expect

Immediate surroundings not that beautiful; the in house restaurant is hardly used by anyone! This remains a quieter location so those that want immediate access to bars, shops etc should stay elsewhere

Rating: 10/10 stars


Stayed on

We loved

The villa, the food, the service and the personal butler. Ten out of 10.

Don’t expect

A ton of activities to choose from. This suited us perfectly but for those who like to do things this isn't your ideal place.

We loved

The villa was amazing, very spacious and with all of the amenities you want on a holiday. The restaurant was also great and the area is out of the busy areas. The staff, particularly our butler, were amazing and the spa was as good as any other spa I have been to. I enjoyed everything about our stay and will go back as soon as we can.
