Amankila has one of Ampersand's Top 10 Swimming Pools
The paradise haven of Amankila is located in one of eastern Bali's most dramatic locations; 180-degree sea views, abundant tropical forest, a coconut grove and a black sand beach, all combined with a sense of calm and real detachment.
This is the perfect place to relax and switch off, but also a great place from which to explore Bali's quieter eastern coast. Popular and worthwhile activities include diving, trekking, snorkelling, boat trips to nearby Nusa Penida and the Gili Islands, cycling through verdant rice paddies, and visits to significant Balinese Hindu temples, such as the revered Lempuyang. Guests can also enjoy complimentary yoga and non-motorised water sports.
Whether you are looking for romance, spirituality, cultural immersion or active pursuits, Amankila has it all. The fabled Mount Agung, a volcano revered as a home to the gods by the Balinese, provides a fantastic backdrop to this all suite hotel. Designed by renowned Aman architect Ed Tuttle, the 34-stilted free-standing suites are tucked into pockets of lush vegetation around the property, and all overlooking the outstanding sea views. Surrounded by fragrant frangipani trees, the lobby affords exceptional ocean views, as well as views of the hotel's signature three-tiered pool. Below the resort, set back from the private white crescent beach, is the Beach Club which offers yet another fabulous pool, as well as casual dining serving local and Western delicacies.
