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.

Reviews for Amankila
We just spent our 25th Anniversary at the Amankila. I did not want to leave. The views are beyond anything you can imagine. Pure paradise! The tiered pools are gorgeous. The individual covered spaces by the pool provide shade, a breeze, spectacular views and a feeling of peace. The huts on the beach and beach club area make you appreciate nature. Take the boat / snorkeling trip and East Bali tour trip from the resort. The chef worked with us on our special diet. The whole place feels like Big Dur meets Malibu on steroids and then some. Over the top in terms of beauty. Non pretentious. LOTS of stairs on the property. You have to walk everywhere and take many many stairs to get everywhere on the property. My ideal "happy place."
This property was only 50% booked when we stayed for 10 days. If you want quiet relaxation this is the place to be. Suites were awesome, views were awesome and the staff was so attentive. A bit pricey, but worth it.
The hotel has a fantastic view, we also asked to move to a room with a better view and it was granted. Unfortunately we had to leave the hotel to go to the hospital but the aman and the general manager gave us all the support we needed and they did not even leave us alone a second. This is what you expect from the best hotels : Aman resorts. thank you!

We spent three days and two nights at Amankila, at the end of a trip to Bali for my 50th birthday in July. I had heard a lot about Amankila, with friends having stayed there and recommending it. And it really lived up to the hype. From the moment we were picked up by our lovely driver in Ubud and taken to this wonderful place, everything was perfect. We were greeted by name by all of the staff, the check in was smooth and seamless as we didn't have to spend any time at reception, we were taken directly to our room and it was all done there. The rooms are really large and lovely - we were in a garden view room at the back of the property, which we loved. We felt it was very private but we did have lovely glimpses of the ocean and were surrounded by jungle. There are lovely long walkways and a few steps to get around the property, which we didn't mind, but you can also get picked up in a buggy and taken around if you need. The manager Ernst went out of his way to speak with us every day. He checked in to see how we were liking things, and if everything was as expected. He was amazing and clearly very good at his job! Because it was my birthday, he also very kindly, gave me a spa service as a gift. The food was amazing and has a great selection of Indonesian and non-Indonesian. The chef was also incredibly friendly and he very kindly provided us with an amazing last night dinner by the pool, along with a fabulous birthday cake! I really can't rave about this place enough. Yes, it is secluded and remote, but that is what I liked about it. We had come from the craziness of Ubud so it was lovely to be able to relax and do nothing. All the staff were wonderful and friendly. We also did one of the complimentary yoga classes in the pavilion by the beach, which was wonderful. The yoga teacher was amazing! The pools, the beach club, the bar, the restaurants, there was nothing that wasn't amazing. I can't wait to get back there!

A wonderful hotel but built on a hillside and long treks up and down steps define a lot of the experience. Lots to do. Great service, food and attentiveness. Would choose amandari for an extra night or two.
