Hotel Uyah Amed Spa Resort
Welcome to the ECO – friendly Hotel Uyah Amed & Spa and Café Garam
Café Garam, which means Salt Café, is part of Hotel Uyah Amed & Spa Resort, which we have translated as Salt Lodge Amed. Garam is the Indonesian – and Uyah the Balinese word for salt.
Mid 2000 we were sitting in Amed and
discussed the tremendous changes in the area due to the growing tourism.
More and more salt production fields were left unused or sold by their
owners to be used for bungalows etc. Since we did not like the idea that
the traditional salt production would disappear in the near future we
worked out our plan to preserve this tradition for the people of Amed as
well as for interested foreigners. In order to combine the development
of tourism with the traditional lifestyle we decided to build this hotel
and café around the salt production fields and use the salt production
as our motto. We strive to preserve the traditional salt production by
promoting it as point of interest for foreign tourists and explain the
production process. We produce the salt during dry season (when
production is possible) and store it in our traditional bamboo hut
“Gudang Garam”. You can buy this tasty salt in our Café Garam.
to contribute to a sustainable development in this beautiful part of
Bali we are strongly committed to an environmentally friendly
implementation of our services and strive for prevention of pollution. Our Hotel is equipped with solar powered
water heating systems, which use the mostly available sun and require no
electrical energy for heating.
Since most of our guest request
air-conditioned accommodation we have equipped most of our bungalows
with electrical air conditioners and selected low electricity consuming
units for that purpose. We further have applied an air conditioning
/cooling system based on the effect of evaporation for our non AC
bungalows (No 2 – 7). Our system works best with a strong wind that we
usually enjoy in Amed. For the convenience of our guest we additionally
installed electrical ceiling fans to support the air ventilation.
We have implemented and maintain an
environmental management system to reduce the consumption of natural
resources and to prevent pollution by waste separation, composting,
energy and water – saving installations and programs. We grow fruit and
vegetables in our BIO garden. We try to communicate our environmental
goals to the local community and our guest in order to be in harmony
with this beautiful environment.
