Rooms & Suites: 34
Amankila is a cliffside beach resort overlooking the Lombok Strait in East Bali. The suites are elevated to take advantage of the spectacular views to the sea and surrounding hillsides.
The resort is close to Manggis, Candi Dasa, Tenganan and other villages in Karangasem, Bali's most traditional regency. From spectacular views and seaside seclusion, to mountains and valleys rich with Bali's diverse culture, Amankila offers travellers a sanctuary for romantic, spiritual, cultural and active pursuits. The fabled Mount Agung, a volcano revered as a home of the gods by the Balinese, rears 3,142m above sea level, providing a dramatic backdrop to the 34-suite resort. Perched on the coast near the village of Manggis in East Bali, Amankila is blessed with a white crescent of private beach, incredible views of the Lombok Strait and cliff-side grounds around the three-tiered pool, sweet with the scent of frangipani and tuberoses. But this hideaway resort offers more than the simple pleasures of sand and sea. Amankila is the ideal base from which to explore the cultural diversity and rich history of East Bali, a place of temples, palaces, rice paddies and ruins, of villages where crafts lost to the rest of the island are still practiced, and where religion is an intrinsic part of everyday life, seen both in colourful festivals and in simple daily offerings to the gods.
