I have recently returned from my travels to Bali and Lombok and loved every moment of my time in Amed. Golden Buddha is an AMAZING place and I am so grateful that you connected me to Wayan and his people. Not only was the stay lovely, but the people of Amed, in particular the people at Golden Buddha/Pazzo/Apa Kabar, were so wonderful to me and showed me the best that Amed and Bali have to offer.

One night I was treated to an amazing Balinese evening, including a delicious traditional dinner, Balinese decor and two very special dances performed by several lovely and beautiful local girls…the experience brought tears to my eyes and made me fall more in love with the country. I was overwhelmed by the kindness and treatment of the staff towards me. Having traveled the world as a single female, I was touched by the attention of the staff…from making sure I was always comfortable, that I was well fed and that I made it back to the property safely every evening – this was above and beyond expectations. I felt like the staff took me under the wings and made sure I enjoyed experiencing the local vibe, hanging out at Pazzo, going to their local hangouts rather than just where the tourists spend time and soaking up the relaxing lifestyle Bali has to offer. I can’t thank you, Wayan and all the people of Amed enough for offering me such an amazing experience…I hope to return some day!! And I will certainly forward Sojourn Ventures information to any and all of my friends that may get the travel bug!!”
