The Perfumed Garden is part of Life in Amed Boutique Hotel, our hotel is found in the Village of Lean in Amed in the region of Karangasem in East Bali. One of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas on the island, far from the crowds and tourism of Kuta, but only 3 hours from the airport.
A scenic route through rice fields and villages, the shadow of Mount Agung and King's palaces you will come the dramatic coastine of Amed. Best known for it's shipwrecks and deep sea diving, snorkling and fishing trips, or a place to relax and soak up the sun and enjoy Balinese Village life.
We are located in the Fishing Village of Lean, each morning before sunrise the local fisherman leave on their Jukung boats to catch mackerel in the Lombok Straights, one of the deepest seas in the world. The fisherman usually return around 7.30 am in the morning, which is lovely to watch from the beach. It is a family affair so the women and children gather to collect the fish and take it to the road, where it is then picked up to be taken to the city for export.
From the beach in front of the Perfumed Garden it is easy to snorkel and see many colourful fish and large coral formations. You can see Angelfish, Bannerfish, Giant Wrasse and Orange-lined Triggerfish. There are many places to snorkel in Amed, take a trip on a jukung boat to the Japanese Shipwreck, Jemeluk, a fishing trip or to watch the sunset. It is easy to snorkel from the most of the local beaches and for the learning or experienced diver there are many beautiful dives in the area, the most famous at Tulamben, the SS Liberty an American Warship sunk by the Japanese in 1942. If you are interested in taking a diving course , there are some great local companies and all come to collect you for your dives.
Our Perfumed Garden Beach House is on flat land and directly beach front, a mixture of black and white sand, it is lovely to sunbathe between the traditional Jukung boats, most of the time you will be the only person on our beach and the local children may come to play and collect shells for you. For snorkelling keep in mind the tides change and are stronger at Full Moon and Dark Moons, visibility may not be as good, the beach width also changes with the seasons and is shorter in the winter months and widest in the summer months, which is also the coolest time to come to Bali. A few meters to the left, past the Temple is a sandy stretch, great for swimming and floating in the ocean.
If you enjoy walking in the morning or late afternoon, take a left from the villa and you'll see village life and beautiful views for the cliffs. Hikers can go up and over the mountain with a local guide. On the motorbike it is easy to go over the mountain to Bangli Village where they have five Holy springs with different tasting water, rice terraces and tapioca drying on the rocks or just cruise the stunning coastline towards Seraya.
