Day 3 wasn’t so pleasant with the wind blowing pretty hard on the beach. See below how our hair got swept by the wind! We checked out from our accommodation in Bara Beach around 11am and use the hotel car to drive us to Amatoa resort (cost IDR 50K to Tanjung Bira).
And if I thought it was windy on Bara Beach, the wind was even stronger at Amatoa Resort because it was perched on a cliff straight to the ocean.
Amatoa Resort was even more breathtaking than the picture I saw on their website. Bara Beach was beautiful, but this resort took my breath away. It is definitely worth every penny. Imagine Karma Kandara resort at a price cheaper by 70%. Amatoa Resort only has 7 rooms, so you do need to book in advance. We stayed in Deluxe Room (Room 5) designed for 3 people, rate at IDR 1.89Mio/night.
Room 1 and 2 are their suites and they have their own private terrace. Room 3 to 5 have direct access to the swimming pool. Room 6 has a private terrace and room 7 are for family, slightly at the back but still facing the ocean.
This view reminded me of Ayana Rock Bar in Bali
Versi Ayah Bunda
Versi FHM (ignore the pregnant belly…FHM model wannabe often forgot that she was more of Ayah Bunda model now lol)
Amatoa resort can be contacted thru their email: firstname.lastname@example.org and its website
The wind got even stronger later in the day and the sea was getting choppier, I didn’t see anymore boats in the water.
We walked to Tanjung Bira to have early dinner at D’perahu restaurant. Bira Beach was already deserted when we walked for dinner because of the strong wind.
D’perahu food is average but the restaurant is worth the visit because of the unique structure.
