Dramatic seascape, old traditions
on East Bali Coast
Perched on a cliffside overlooking the Lombok Strait, Amankila is a haven of tranquility. Chic and understated, it draws on the traditional architecture of the region, and is possibly one of the most romantic destinations in Bali.
ACCOMODATION: Amankila’s suites are elevated to take advantage of the spectacular sea and hillside views, which makes for the perfect setting in the realm of luxury Bali resorts. The 34 free-standing suites, with their alang alang roof thatching, are fashioned as beach houses with a twist. They reflect the lines and flow of their east Bali surroundings, in particular the royal water palace just outside Amlapura, the district capital. Suites are connected to the reception and restaurant area by raised walkways. Wireless broadband connections are available in all resort accommodation and public areas.
DINING: The Restaurant, located above the main pool overlooking the ocean, is open for dinner. The menu features a mix of Western and Indonesian cuisine. Adjacent to the Restaurant is Amankila’s Bar, also with views of the sea. The Terrace, set just back from the signature threetiered pool is open for breakfast and lunch, and serves Asian and Western cuisine. Afternoon tea is served daily in front of the Library, where local women dressed in sarongs and kebayas offer complimentary Indonesian ginger tea, Bali kopi (coffee) and local Balinese cakes. The Beach Club offers a simple menu of salads, pizzas, Indonesian and Western light dishes for brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. Private dining is available in the suites 24 hours a day.
ACTIVITIES: The Beach Club is located at the base of the cliff, a five-minute walk below the main resort. Guests can either walk to the beach or be driven there in one of Amankila’s open-air buggies. Set within a grove of coconut palms and partially shaded by a frangipani tree, is Amankila’s largest swimming pool. Windsurfers, boogie boards, kayaks and Hobie cats are available at the Beach Club. Amankila’s staff will assist guests with water sports and provide lessons or sailing partners if required. Eight private lounging bales (gazebos) are set along the sandy beach, tucked into the foliage for added privacy. Drinks and light meals can be enjoyed in the bales.
Aside from the 41m Beach Club pool, Amankila’s signature three-tiered pool sits dramatically just below the lobby. Set into the cliff-edge, the three blue-tiled pools face the sea and flow one into the other down a stepped gradient similar to terraced rice paddies.
Yoga classes can be taken under the coconut trees surrounding the Beach Club, or in the privacy of guests’ suites.
The cool, shady Library has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the top tier of the pool. Oversized daybeds allow guests to relax and enjoy the wide selection of books, newspapers and magazines. Games, CDs and a laptop for Internet access are also available. The Boutique has a generous selection of unique Balinese art, crafts and antiques available for purchase.
Traditional Balinese massage and beauty treatments are available in the privacy of guests’ suites, in the specially-designated massage pavilion, or at the Beach Club where two teakwood massage tables are hidden away in a grove of coconut palms and flowering bushes.
