Amanwana
Moyo Island

Top 10s logo 

Amanwana is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Aman Resorts in Asia.

The wilderness hideaway camp of Amanwana (meaning peaceful forest) is the only resort on the Indonesian island of Moyo, a nature and marine reserve 15 kilometres off the coast of Sumbawa, east of Bali.

Surrounded by the turquoise waters and rich untouched reefs of the Flores Sea, which offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Indonesia, the island is 350 square kilometres of open savannah and tropical jungle. The island is blessed with a variety of wildlife, such as deer, wild boar and macaque monkeys, and prolific birdlife which can be discovered on jungle treks on the island.

The camp’s accommodation of 20 luxury tents, lies under a canopy of tropical forest. Each 58-square-metre tent is constructed of wooden walls, large windows and canvas ceilings, with a hardwood deck outside each tent. Inside, the air-conditioned tents are decorated with Indonesian island artwork and hardwood flooring, and comprise of a spacious sitting, a king-size bed, writing desk and large bathroom.

Amanwana’s restaurant and bar are located in an open-air pavilion with a soaring 15-metre bamboo roof, serving a daily menu of both Asian and Western food. Indonesian hardwood flooring and solid coconut pillars support the tropical structure which looks out over Amanwana Bay, and romantic campfires on the beach and starlight drinks create your own Robinson Crusoe experience. There is also an open-air Jungle Cove Spa which is set back from the beach beneath a roof of shady tamarind trees overlooking Amanwana Bay.

Guests arrive at this special camp by their state-of-the-art Cessna floatplane which adds to the adventure and sense of seclusion of the resort. The camp also has two coastal cruisers, Amanikan and Amandira, which host adventurous multi-day excursions to Rinca and the Komodo Islands, as well as expeditions through the beautiful archipelago of Raja Ampat.

Wi-Fi is available in the tents and throughout the resort.

Client Testimonials

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
