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
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....

Amankila certainly doesn't show its age. The maintenance of this pristine and prestigious property has kept Amankila as one of the top (if not 'the top') hotels in Bali. Situated on the stunning east coast of Bali, the hotel benefits from sunshine when the rest of the island could be covered in cloud. The view from the property is priceless, perched atop a cliff, the property's signature 3 tiered pool is instagram-ready - it's virtually impossible to take a bad photo. The pool villa, especially villa 26, is certainly worth the investment, with a stunning patio, long pool and large spacious villa with all the mod cons you could need. What's great is seeing Aman's signature 'small property-big service' come to life here. The service level is unquestionably perfect and there is always someone on call no matter if you are lying on the beach or by the main pool. It's as if your villa is turned over by magic, and candles line the pool after dinner for that extra romantic and magical moment. The food and drink is sublime, with the restaurants offering excellent quality western and traditional Indonesian fare. We rarely find hotels where both cuisines are equally good. For more relaxed food, head to the beach club, where we spent a lot of our time. The pool, beach and sea with crystal clear water and complimentary water sports is the perfect haven, although sadly wifi across the property means if you don't want to switch off from the outside world, you can always check the news or your emails. With a wide range of experiences outside the property also on offer, from temples to traditional villages and salt makers, it's easy to leave the property, should you be able to peel yourself away from all this majestic splendour.
I was most impressed with the beautiful surroundings. Although it was difficult to get to the ocean and the surf was too difficult to swim, the infinity pools were extraordinary. The manager of the hotel, Ernst was attentive to every need. Food was superb. Ausi chef. My husband was sick. A doctor arrived promptly. Next day the manager send flowers to our room. The care and service at this hotel puts it at a first rate hotel surpassing any four seasons. Memorable adventure.

Like the rest of the Aman properties, the service, style and food is outstanding. The hotel is vast and absolutely beautiful, with the centre piece being their three-tied pool. They have an amazing beach with black sand and a handful of water based activities. The food is fantastic - there was nothing to fault here!
