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
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!

This is a great hotel in a beautiful location. The food here is absolutely incredible. Some of the best food on our entire trip. The hotel is immaculate. The service is outstanding. The 3 tiered waterfall pools are very relaxing. The 4PM tea hour and cake hour is really nice. I have no complaints about this hotel. My only warning is that this hotel has a lot of steps. There are 175 steps from the beach to the hotel lobby. It is about a 250ft difference between the hotel gate and the beach. However beach / beach pool has lots of amenities, so you never need to leave there, and the lobby pools have a great view with everything you need, so you may not want to go down to beach. But if you do, the hotel will offer to take you back and forth in a modified beach cruiser convertible SUV. You never leave the hotel property and it takes all of two minutes. However our room had a lot of stairs to get to as well. The hotel does have a variety of rooms as it is built into the side of a big hill. I didn't ask if there were any rooms that had no stairs. Finally the yoga instructor (free yoga) is awesome. If anyone has a video of him laughing, please post it. His laughing is contagious! Also, did I mention how great the food is? Finally we did the snorkeling trip. It was fun. We saw a lot of fish although the water was a little murky. The snorkel guide was great. Took his time to give us a snorkeling tour, and allowed my wife to hold on to a floatation device that he pulled, so she didn't even have to swim! It says the trip comes with a "snack" which turned out to be a beautiful lunch that we ate on the boat after snorkeling. We got lucky and had the whole boat to ourselves. This motivated us to charter the same type of outrigger boat when we went to Amanwana at Moyo Island directly after this. Everyone that works at this hotel is extremely gracious, respectful, helpful... Wonderful people.

A hotel that away from Hustle bustle of the city town, the room was spacious and its offer you an outstanding sea view, the Pool was large and beautiful, the food and the staff were excellent, we would come back again next year with other friends
This is my second time at Amankila and I can't wait to make it back! Absolutely everything you expect from Aman. The hotel is spectacular and overlooking the black beaches. The hotel itself is very remote and little to do in the area so its just one of those places to stay if you don't really like leaving the resort. We most enjoyed taking the boat for the day exploring the island and snorkeling.
