The Amadea Resort & Villas Team
Keeping Bali seas trash free.
On September 15, 2018 a team of Amadea employees proudly joined forces with other hotels in the immediate area to participate in the International Coastal Cleanup 2018. This initiative was organized by Bali Hotels Association whereby volunteers worked hard to clear plastic debris from several beaches and rivers. More than a thousand kilograms of plastic rubbish was collected in an effort to help protect Bali’s coastal strip and waterways.
Amadea has always been committed to eco-friendly practices in every aspect of its operation. For the past two consecutive years the resort has received ‘accessed’ status from EarthCheck.org. This certification, based on a science-based approach, has helped Amadea increase efficiency, maximize guest experience and minimize its environmental and social footprint. It is never too late to start making changes to preserve the planet for future generations.

Amadea's Temple Anniversary
Amadea Resort & Villas celebrates the anniversary of its temple every year with an elaborate purification ceremony to reinforce the connection between the physical and unseen worlds. It will take place on 24th September 2018, which is an auspicious date on the Balinese religious calendar that coincides with the full moon. The ceremony will involve colorful offerings and a ritual blessing by a local high caste priest. In-house guests are welcome to observe the proceedings and join the Amadea team as they pray for peace and prosperity.
The essence of Balinese Hinduism is all about maintaining a harmonious existence. This concept is supported by a lifestyle philosophy known as Tri Hita Karana that embodies the balance between man, his environment and God Almighty. Religion greatly influences the everyday lives of most Balinese. Here, ancestors are defied, as are the fundamental forces of nature. Beneath the surface of modernization, it is Bali’s rich culture and timeless traditions that make the island such a unique destination.
Explore Bali by Bike
Discover the beauty of Bali and its unique cultural traditions up close and personal with a guided cycling excursion that ventures into the very heart of the island. Amadea works closely with two experienced operators that carry out daily trips in inspiring locations.
Mason Adventures was the adventure company of its kind in Bali and has a proven safety record. It offers travellers the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of mainstream tourism and experience the cooler climate of Bali’s hill region. Each trip uses brand new mountain bikes and supporting safety equipment. Riders follow a downhill trail that passes through sleepy villages and back roads. It is a fascinating insight into daily life in rural Bali.
Mason Adventures also conducts a cycling tour that is suitable for healthy guests of all ages. It begins from a mountain starting point and winds its way down through 26 km of lush valleys and village hamlets, pasing Hindu temples and lush rice terraces. Expert guides will explain the history of the land, culture and its people at scenic spots along the way. In addition, Mason Adventures Tours offer extra value packages combining cycling with a rafting expedition or elephant safari ride.
All cycling excursions are inclusive of return transfers, complimentary mineral water, a cold towel and a delicious buffet luncheon upon completion. Please contact our Guest Service Assistance to make the necessary booking arrangements for a fun cycling experience with your preferred operator.
