You know that song “Love Is In The Air” by John Paul Young? That’s the song that’s been playing on repeat in my head, because from the moment Hubby and I arrived, romance was well and truly in the air at the Berry Amour Resort.
Every hotel has its own concept, and it works to incorporate that theme throughout the property. The Berry Amour Resort is about all things love and romance. Whether you are on your honeymoon or anniversary or just some much needed R&R with your love, the Berry Amour Resort is sure to add more spark to your romantic vacation.
Now don’t get me wrong – when I say all things love and romance… I don’t mean heart shaped beds with cheesy love themed decoration. In fact, Berry Amour has so tastefully incorporated the romance theme, that in 2014 the resort won “Top Luxury Romantic Hotel” by the World Luxury Hotel Awards.
This is another beautifully designed resort that has been inspired by the team at Avilla Hospitality. They are a fantastic local Balinese company, which focuses on creating unique hotel concepts, and providing excellent Balinese hospitality to all of its guests. This is the second Avilla resort I have stayed at, and it truly amazed me.
Here’s a lovely preview into the very romantic Berry Amour Resort:
Star Rating: 4-star
Location: Seminyak, Bali (Indonesia)
Number of Rooms: 20 Private Pool Villas
Resort is open to adults only (No-one under the age of 16 years).
Checking Into the Berry Amour Resort
Upon arriving to the resort, we were greeted straight away and brought to the reception to check in. The check in process was extremely smooth and efficient…and well romantic of course.
How could a check in process possibly be romantic you might be wondering?
Our welcome drinks were not your typical mixed juice, but rather a delicious Strawberry Frozen Mocktail. It came served with a delicious strawberry tart. And the cherry on top? A crowning ceremony.
The lady who welcomed us at the reception asked Hubby to crown me with a lovely handmade flower crown. It was actually a really lovely surprise and I have to say, the flower crown made for some pretty photos.
It was a lovely welcoming experience, which is different from any check in experience I have ever had in the past.
The resort has 20 private pool villas, each offering a lot of privacy, space, luxury, and well romance.
There are 3 different villa themes – Desire, Mystic, and Temptation. While the villa layout in general is relatively similar, it is the overall décor of the villa that is different depending on the overall theme. During our stay, we got to experience 2 different themed villas. The first one was Mystic, and the second one was Temptation.
The Mystic Villa is slightly darker in design, with more Balinese features including the stone carved walls and art. Temptation was my favourite theme. The colors were much lighter, which I felt made the villa welcome more natural light, and gave it an airier feel.
The bathroom offers a large bathtub (which can be filled up and sprinkled with rose petals), a spacious rain shower, a his and her sink, and a good sized closet. While many hotels are beginning to reduce the amount of vanities on offer, the Berry Amour Resort are still quite generous. There is also a good sized in-room safe, enough to fit a 13-inch laptop.
There is also a small kitchen area, with a sizable fridge, a hot plate, and utensils. There is also a small dining table in the kitchen.
Overall the villas are so well designed, and provides a generous amount of space for all guests. My favorite feature of the villas? The way the villa opens up to the oversized private pool – I could jump into the pool from the living room area. The pool was seriously so generous in size, compared to many other villas I have stayed in.
And you know what’s fun as well? You can order your very own blown up pool floatie to be brought to the villa. One day we had a Pegusus floatie, and the next time we got a Swan floatie. Not only were they so relaxing to just chill on while floating on the pool, the floaties made for some fun photo sessions.
Facilities & Food
It is important to note that the resort does not have a common pool or restaurant. I did not mind this at all, especially because the private pool in the resort is so generous in size. All meals can either be taken in the villa or in the bar area. I preferred taking the meals in the villa, because I could easily jump into the pool between bites (lol)!
100% I recommend the floating breakfast. While a cool gimmick, and of course makes for some excellent social media photos, the floating breakfast is a fun way to spend the morning.
The floating tray is really sturdy and a great size to fit all the different breakfast elements. It is also easy to sit in the pool and eat your breakfast for 2. I also felt that the breakfast selection was incredibly generous. There is a fantastic variety in the menu, which meant there was something for everyone each day.
You can pretty much choose how you want to take your breakfast. You can have it floating in the pool, or you can have it set up on the dining table, or in bed, or you can even take it on the sun bed in the bar area of the resort. All you have to do is let your Butler know what you’ll like, and he will organise it according to your wishes. Talk about personalised service!
Every afternoon, afternoon tea is available for all in-house guests between 4-6pm. You just have to let the reception know what time you wish to take your afternoon tea, and the team will bring it straight to your villa according to your specified time.
The afternoon tea came with a range of pastries, and cakes. From a lovely red velvet cake with white chocolate layers, to lovely Balinese style dessert, it is a sweet surprise to enjoy afternoon tea in the villa.
Upon checking in, we were given vouchers for a complimentary 15 minutes’ couples massage. This was a welcoming surprise, and a great way to start our staycation at the Berry Amour Resort.
We also enjoyed a 1-hour full body massage, which was lovely. The treatment first began with a foot bath and warm tea. Once completed, we enjoyed our 1-hour full body massage. Both the masseuses were great. I felt my pressure was just right and there was a good consistency to the massage, which meant that the staff were properly trained.
I felt the spa was affordable, with a 1-hour full body massage costing around Rp350,000 per person.
Berry Amour is located along Jalan Batu Beling in Seminyak. It is just a short drive to the beach, the various beach clubs, and shopping areas. The hotel provides a free shuttle into Seminyak, you just need to speak to your Butler to book in a time.
I did not want to leave the Berry Amour Resort. Maximum privacy, romance, and space, the Berry Amour Resort is sure to be just what you need on your romantic getaway.
The staff were also fantastic – every time we walked by any staff member, we were greeted with a friendly smile, and also usually addressed by our names. Everyone was extremely friendly, and we really felt at home during our stay here.
From personalised breakfast experiences, to floatie requests, to spa treatments in your villa or the spa room, to cute love notes… the Berry Amour go above and beyond to ensure a comfortable and romantic stay.
Villas start at A$285 (U$214) per night, which includes breakfast, a Butler, and your very own generously sized pool. Rates may fluctuate depending on season and availability. You can find out more about the Berry Amour here. Avilla Hospitality also manage a range of other fantastic properties all around Bali.
Hubby and I truly loved our stay at this resort, and it has easily become one of our favorite resorts. So if you are looking for a romantic getaway with your loved one, Berry Amour Resort is really the perfect spot for you.
