We met Amy in the line up, started to chat and she told us about her place. We were curious so we stopped by the next day and immediately fell in love with this place. Big comfy rooms and beds, beautiful garden with a nice platform to watch breathtaking sunsets or to just enjoy the morning coffee and spot a dolphin if lucky ? delicious food and an always happy and helpful Amy and staff around. I've tried to come over a second time this year but it didn't work out on my asia trip but I will definitely come back! See you soon my friend - enjoy your paradise!! Well done!!

Heaven on earth �
Where the waves are perfect and the beers are cold and the sunsets are gold
The food at the camp was the best food on island always fresh and no one got sick
I went to Amy's with a group of 4 and every one of us loved the place ! When the boys went surfing Amy and the girls would enjoy the day in the sun and water
On the lay days there's always so much to do and you can even go up to the local water falls
Highly recommended to stay at Amy's if your heading over ! I can't wait to get back

I had the best stay at Amy's place! The location is great, with surf spots that are a short scooter ride. Super peaceful and mellow to chill out in her hammocks after a good surf. The staff is the friendliest people and they are super helpful. Plus the cook makes amazing food! The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and spacious with comfortable beds.

One day when the surf wasn't the best, the staff made a slip n slide in the garden and we rode Amy's pool floaties down the slip n slide for hours! We met some great people here and will defiantly be coming back in the future!

Ps. You have to try her home made peanut butter on the banana pancakes. It will change your life!
Thank you for an amazing stay Amy! Hopefully we'll see you again soon!

o anyone who has been to Krui before or is new, I highly recommend staying at Amys Place. Amys place is super central and has so many waves surrounding it. The area is private, spacious and so so relaxing. Highly recommended if you are bringing your Mrs!

The staff are so friendly and always wanting to make your stay a more genuine experience. The ladies in the kitchen rock out with such a good food and smiles, they are the best.

Amy is a super cool positive lady who will 100% make you laugh and drink beer with her, which is so epic �

This place is incredible and I've spent nearly 40 days here , I call it home because it's just to good �� sad to leave!

My husband and I stayed at Amy’s Place for three weeks and it was a terrific trip. Amy is a rockstar. She keeps everything running smoothly, and her staff does a great job. The food was tasty and healthy — from freshly caught fish and local dishes, to Mexican night with the staff spending the day rolling out tortillas and making salsa and guac. Amy’s Place is small enough that you get plenty of personal attention and spot-on advice regarding the best places to surf each day. The rooms are super clean and comfortable (real mattresses and cotton sheets!), and the pool and gardens are beautiful. Love the beachfront deck and covered platform for doing yoga and pilates (had some great sessions with Amy — she’s a certified Pilates instructor too) or for just chilling in a hammock or on a bean bag. We’ve visited many places in Indonesia and Amy’s is absolutely one of the best. And it has the best porch swing ever. � Perfect place to enjoy an ice cold beer and watch the stunning sunsets!

I came to Amy's place with not much of an idea what I was in for and a little sceptical about how clean the place was in the pictures online.. turns out this place is legit! It's by far the most impressive place I've stayed in indo. The food has been amazing (Amy and her staff will tweak it if needed), the grounds are truly paradise, the rooms are clean/ just what I needed after big days in the water and the surf pumps!!!! Reefs and beaches directly out front. We had a really good crowd of people staying here with nothing but good vibes! I even managed to put a large fin cut in my butt on the last day and Amy accompanied me to the hospital to translate and make sure everything went smoothly.. 9 stitches and some hilarious footage later, I am stoked :)

Thanks for the epic adventure Amy and crew! I will never forget this ���

Be back soon

I've traveled indo a lot and this camp is up there with the best I've stayed at.
Good layout, clean and immaculate gardens to enjoy!!
Food was on point!..Lots of traditional and western dishes! Beers are cold ��
Scooters and drivers are all here ready.
Amy and the staff are good fun and get involved in the adventures.
Very comfortable stay in such a remote place!

If you're going to Krui, go to Amy's place! My family and I have had some of the best times ever at Amy's.
She's a wonderful host, the food is amazing and the waves are pumping all the time! Amy's place is close to a lot of different breaks, that all work on different conditions and are suitable for all different skill levels. From meaty barrels to peeling point breaks. After a warm surf you can cool down in the cool pool and enjoy a beer at the deck.
The rooms are big, comfy and always clean!
Looking forward to next time!!

Amy, the owner and manager is one in a million. She's put her heart, mind and soul into Amy's Place and she will make sure your stay is truly memorable, catering to everyones needs!

The location is perfect, close to Leftovers and the Peak, with Krui left and its surrounding breaks 5 mins. Mandiri beach is 15 mins and the Point is 25 mins. Plenty more insane surf breaks are north, 45 min car trip away. Not to mention Banana Island a 45 min boat trip, this was my favourite! And a must if you're staying here, Amy will arrange everything for the day trip, including lunch and transfers.

I loved the space at Amy's. Many gardens, plenty of grass, huge coconut trees for shade, quality hammocks, lazing around so you really take in the fresh air, the views, the ambience of the place.

The food was fantastic, my partner and I have strict dietary requirements from stomach issues caused from parasites and the staff were more than willing to offer plenty of dairy and gluten free options, including rice flour tortillas for Mexican night, this was a real treat, thank you!

The scooters for rent are perfect, brand new, safe, easy to use, living in Bali I see too many unsafe scooters available for guests to rent. The choices at Amy's are far better quality and the rate is cheap!

We had a wonderful time at Amy's, a group of 6 surfers travelling from Australia and Bali, so many good waves to be had, met new, like minded people, exploring South Sumatra was beautiful, thank you for the good times Amy, we'll be back!

I've stayed at Amy's Place twice. Once with my family (me, wife and 4yo) the second time around as a solo surfer. Very easy to communicate with Amy upon setting up the trip. She was very helpful, especially my first time since I was bringing my family and probably asked too many questions. Depending on where you are coming from, Indo can be a daunting trip to try and put together anonymously online, Amy is there to help you along the way. The grounds are stunning and immaculate. Beautifully landscaped and managed. Staff is friendly, courteous and professional. The food is fantastic. You will not starve staying here, that is for sure. She constantly upgrades and improves on the grounds and facilities. Her business model of not overcrowding the accommodations and providing a friendly atmosphere is fairly uncommon in my experience at "surf camps". Full time security on site. Plenty of waves in the area. Amy will dial you in each day as to the best (known) spots for wind, swell and tide. plenty of options in the area. Some more details on my trip advisor reviews as well....I will just end it with my bags are always packed and when the Wife gives me the green light I know where I am going and where I am staying....

Amy's Place is a little jungle haven with, (I'd wager) the best food on offer in this area if you want to mix up the local favorites with some western dishes. Great accommodations but the best bit is the hostess herself who can't help enough, but also bloody great company over some afternoon beers ? We had fun surf at the end of September and hope to get back some point soon !

The rooms are super comfy and kept clean! It was super fun to ride the scooters to the diverse waves we got to surf!! Especially loved the beach breaks! I'll defiantly be coming back here again! Thanks for the fun times Amy!! Highly recommended to everyone! 😃

A gorgeous getaway to suit everyone. Amy's Place is perfectly located for hitting up the various surf spots. It's also ideal for those non-surfers, providing an idyllic retreat with the friendliest staff (and cutest dogs!). Lovely people, beautiful place, great food and a fantastic time. Thank you!
