Amankila in Bali, Indonesia

Amankila is a tranquil beachside haven on the remote east coast of Bali. The resort, set against the dramatic backdrop of distant strato volcano Mt Agung, is enveloped by lush vegetation and overlooks the Lombok Strait. Its layout features a serene, three-tiered pool tumbling down the hillside like a cascading rice field. Elevated to maximize sea views and joined by meandering walkways, Amankila’s Suites appear to float amidst frangipani and bougainvillea trees. Inside, coconut wood and furniture inlaid with pearl complement the thatched roofs. The ocean-view Restaurant focuses on locally sourced ingredients. Traditional local techniques are combined with contemporary cooking styles for revitalizing cuisine.

Drawing on the energy of east Bali, the Spa’s therapies aim for complete relaxation and presence in the moment. Natural ingredients are used in traditional Balinese baths, scrubs and wraps – available in the privacy of guest Suites, the massage pavilion, a beach bale or secluded open-air spot with tropical canopy. Scuba divers and snorkellers will find wonder in the unspoiled coral reefs, and the waves attract surfers and kayakers. The island emanates with crafts, culture and a royal past; and evenings are perfect for romantic dinners on the beach.

After my third visit to Bali , I thought I had seen it all. But the anonymity of the east and this Aman blew me away. Villas were wonderful , food and service were exceptional . I enjoyed the pool much more than beach ( as it was full of garbage!) I enjoyed the Thai cooking class. The restaurants are romantic and perfect at night. Use the buggy service for connecting the other side of the property as the walk was too long. I loved in room dining in my terrace and tea time!

As you would expect with Aman the quality of the offering is top notch. Amankila is nestled on the side of a hill overlooking the sea and the views are gorgeous without trying too hard at all. The grounds are well maintained. Security is good with all cars approaching up the private road subject to a check - even the Amankila vehicles that have left and returning. When you arrive at the main reception area you’re struck by the tranquility and the sea view. Both pretty much permeate your stay. As you walk down the steps away from reception the next hit is the three tiered pool area. The lower down the tier the smaller the pool so the biggest (and here we really mean longest as none of the pools are particularly wide - you could probably accommodate 3 lap swimmers at a push). As you go down the tiers you also lose a little depth. Rarely do I see pools in Asia go as deep as 2 metres so this I found impressive. My only small gripe with the pools are that they all have steps going into the pool on either end so there is no flat wall to tumble turn. Only a small grumble though as the pools are beautiful. The other feature that I liked was the private beach. They have a good stretch of beach too so that even if all guests decide to use the beach (and I dare say not all will) you get some privacy. Set behind the beach is the beach pool which is a variant of the pools near reception but EVEN longer - I am guessing it’s a 40-50 metre pool (also 2 metres deep in its middle) although with the same width and steps either end. If you are up for a little walk it takes around 5 minutes along a jungle stone path that winds it’s way down from the reception area to the beach pool (and hence the beach). I would nonetheless suggest their buggy back up the hill as it’s not the easiest of climbs back up. All the basic (ie non suite) villas have the same design. They are not small but again well maintained and well serviced. Each has their own privacy designed through their placement around the Aman property. If you get a pool villa - we were upgraded on our last night - you have the added benefit of a ‘splash’ pool to cool off in. Around 5-6 metres long and 3 metres wide and 1.6m deep so not an insignificant pool. This one did have a flat section AS WELL AS steps which were focussed more on the corner so whilst a small pool you could still tumble!! Yeah!! A significant proportion of staff at the hotel were with them right from its inception - some 26 years - so they are pretty experienced and service I would say is uniformly good through out. Sometimes it was interesting to see the odd fresh faced youngster amongst them but equally you knew that they would get invaluable teaching from their more experienced colleagues. The one standout which I have to say we weren’t expecting was the food. Back home we get Indonesian food but nothing to rave about. Their menu is not particularly wide ranging and they do cater for the unadventurous with some western dishes but hey you are in Bali, Indonesia so try the local fare. It won’t disappoint. The breakfast Nasi Goreng was simply outstanding - as was the Eggs Florentine!! I admit to being an Eggs Benedict fan so I had to try. Evening meals - we loved their megibung and especially the suckling pig element of the megibung. Their fresh juices as expected are uniformly good. One word of caution though - apparently their cocktails are “a bit of a joke” so perhaps some work there is required to bring them up to scratch. Amankila is not cheap by Bali - or other standards. But you absolutely get the quality that you pay for. This has been one of the most relaxing 6 days getaways I’ve had in a long time. No mad rushing around like a tourist. Easy days with a lot of reading with very good food to boot. What more could you want. Very highly recommended. Pictures - am only allowed 10 hopefully speak for themselves.

We visited for lunch and had a walk around. As with any Aman the maintenance and presentation of the property was impeccable and the staff turned out in their starched and laundered finest and professional beyond reproach. As an Aman resort one should (and safely can) take for granted that one is visiting one of the nicest hotels in the world let alone Bali and should expect to pay commensurately. The setting is rather off the more beaten tourist trail in Bali which is unlikely to concern its target market. At the end of the day its still only an hour and a half from the airport or Nusa Dua on some of the island's smoothest and best roads. The famous and iconic tiered pools descending to the beach and exposed Eastern coast line are as magnificent as when they were constructed although the fact that only a small number of the suites have their own private pool is increasingly out of step with Bali's leading resorts and boutique hotels and suggests Amankila's age. The food is of course lovely and well presented and served. However the truth is that it is not meaningfully above the standard set by a number of leading Bali hotels. Faces in the Bale will never captivate the international attention of an Aman label nor offer the dramatic setting of those infinity pools but reality is that its consistent quality of food, presentation and service probably edges that in Amankila's terrace restaurant. And its own central tiered pools set in the tranquility of its minimalist architecture in the heart of Nusa Dua is a very stylish place to spend a lunch or dinner for a price ticket probably less than half that in the Aman.

Without a doubt, this hotel is the best one in Bali. Gorgeous setting, amazing architecture, perfect service. What more can I say? I just hope everyone is safe during this hard time because of Mount Agung activity. And, ah, I almost forgot, happy 25th anniversary Amankila!

This is luxury, stunning beautiful and the true Balinese experience once you have stayed here you would no longer want to stay anywhere else. This is the magical dream. The food is out of this world and the pools are devine. The cares of the world are forgotten....
