Rick & Peta Dunn are well-travelled Australians who have fallen in love with Bali, and Ubud in particular. Living in Perth, they manage to enjoy Amori Villas for 30-40% of the year. With 5 double suites each with its own entrance and space, there is room for all to share - family, friends and paying guests. The photo shows the Dunn family during Melaspas, the blessing ceremony for the property, in May 2009.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2009
Land was purchased in 2005 with the intention of building a retirement retreat. In 2009 Amori Villa was completed. In 2013 the adjoining land was purchased to protect our view, a bridge was built to connect the land to the existing property and facilities and another two villas were completed in 2014. Certainly we never dreamt that Amori Villas would become the extensive and beautiful resort retreat that it is now.
Ubud means healing. For those with busy lives, it is a paradise for an escape and a return to simple pleasures.
Amori is a 5-star boutique resort with uninterrupted and relaxing views over the Petanu River valley. This carefully-chosen location provides you with sounds of the river and a connection with Balinese village life, but with the facilities of the centre of Ubud only a few minutes away by car. The design of Amori would suit groups booking the whole property; or couples wanting their own special holiday - romantic, relaxing, healthy, adventurous or whatever we can provide. There are 3 double suites/villas, 3 double/twin/triple villas and a 1-bedroom family villa which can sleep 4/5. We have 20 staff including 3 chefs and 5 butlers. Through Trip Advisor, our guests have consistently voted Amori Villa into the top 10 of all 899 hotels in Bali. So we must be doing something right! Amori is designed for those who enjoy sitting and reading cooled by the mountain breezes of Ubud; getting tanned and healthy swimming in the 14 meter 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. At night, our chefs will prepare your a-la-carte dinner, or we will drive you to one of the excellent Ubud restaurants, and then pick you up afterwards. Of course, Bali (and Ubud in particular) is famous for its spas and massages. As our guests at Amori you should expect to be pampered. Massage and spa treatments are a skill and an art-form passed down through the generations. Amori offers the full range of spa services, both in-house and by special arrangement with well-chosen local Spas. Imagine yourself having a relaxing massage, herbal body wrap and scrub followed by a flower-petal bath - in an exotic Balinese setting. The tranquil sounds of rippling water complement the soothing aromas of herbs and spices. Serenity, aromas and trained fingers to replenish body, mind and soul…that's Amori.
