Where to Stay in Amed

Before I list the best hotels and accommodations in Amed, let’s break down the various areas so you have an idea of where you want to be.

Amed isn’t exactly huge, but there are five main areas, each offering its own unique charm and appeal. It’s essential to choose the right location if you’re to make the most of your stay.

It’s worth noting that the north of Amed is popular amongst backpackers and budget travellers. Whereas the south has more boutique hotels and luxury resorts. It’s also more secluded.

Amed Village

Amed Village is the most populated area in this part of Bali. As the local fishing hub, armies of jukungs line the beach. It’s also home to various restaurants, bars, and shops.

It’s these convenient amenities that make it a popular area to stay in Amed. There are many accommodation options, particularly for those on a budget.


Jemeluk is known for its stunning bayed beach and excellent snorkelling opportunities. It’s also one of the most developed areas in Amed, so it’s a popular place to stay.

You’ll find a range of accommodation options, from budget-friendly guesthouses to upscale hotels, all within close proximity to the beach. It’s also just a short walk away from Amed village.

Lipah is home to what’s considered the most beautiful beach in Amed. Boasting clear azure waters with a backdrop of swaying palm trees, this is your ticket to the ultimate tropical getaway.

An ideal location for those looking for relaxation and family-friendly activities, Lipah features a selection of beachfront resorts and guesthouses offering stunning ocean views.

Lean Village

We are heading further away from the developed north now and heading into rural territory. Lean Village provides a peaceful retreat and a chance to experience the local culture up close.

Accommodations here are often traditional bungalows or villas nestled amidst the rice fields. There are also some lovely beachfront hotels on Bintang Beach.


To truly escape the hustle and bustle, stay at the very south of Amed around Selang or Ibus. It takes 20 minutes to drive here from Amed town.

While there are fewer conveniences nearby, you can find beautiful boutique hotels and high-end resorts while enjoying secluded beaches and a chance to unwind.
