An experience of the natural
world at its most diverse
Set in a cove on the western side of Moyo island off Sumbawa, Amanwana is surrounded by tropical rainforest and overlooks the inviting waters of Amanwana Bay. Fifteen kilometres northeast of Sumbawa at the western end of Indonesia’s secluded Nusa Tenggara archipelago, Moyo’s 36,000 hectares are home to a variety of bird and animal life including deer, wild boar, macaque monkeys, banteng (wild ox), sea eagles and osprey.
A paradise for water-sports enthusiasts, Amanwana is also a haven for hikers and naturalists, with several walking trails starting directly from the camp. Jungle excursions into the heart of the island lead to a series of spring-fed waterfalls and limestone plunge pools, surrounded by lush palms and wild fig trees, torchginger blooms and shooting vines. Set in one of the world’s most untouched wilderness and marine environments, Amanwana comprises an open invitation to explore nature and indulge the senses in a landscape largely untouched by time.
ACCOMODATION: Each of Amanwana’s 20 tents has 58 square metres of living space with a solid stone foundation, a soaring exterior roof and an interior canvas ceiling. Filled with natural light, each is air-conditioned, with hardwood flooring, a king-size bed, wheat-coloured divans, a writing desk and a large bathroom with twin vanities. Indonesian art decorates the walls and large banks of windows overlook private beach or jungle scenes.
DINING: The Dining Room and Bar are located in an open-air pavilion with a soaring 15-metre roof made of bamboo. Indonesian hardwood flooring and solid coconut pillars support the tropical structure, which looks out over Amanwana Bay. A daily menu of Asian and Western food is served at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Romantic campfire dinners on the beach and starlight cruises can be arranged. Drinks can be taken at the teak-top bar or in the comfy loungers adjacent to the dining area.
ACTIVITIES: Located at the far end of the camp, a few metres from the shoreline, the Music Pavilion is an open-air forest sanctuary where guests can listen to music from an iPod station on cushions and loungers, enjoy picnics, afternoon tea or sunset cocktails.

A freshwater dipping pool is set against a wall of coral rock and a shower is set into the cliff face. A variety of superb dive spots are easily accessible from Amanwana. Guests can organise their underwater programme at the Dive Centre, which also offers a complete range of diving equipment.
With Amanwana’s own dive operation, both beginners and experienced divers can explore the Flores Sea. Some of the best dive sites are no more than a 10-minute boat ride from Amanwana.
The open-air Jungle Cove Spa is set just back from the beach beneath a roof of shady tamarind trees. Simple coral stone walls divide the outdoor spa into three treatment areas, each with a recessed soaking tub and a shower. All three boast views of Amanwana Bay. Treatments include massages, fresh-fruit facials and black Borneo body scrubs.
