AMANKILA: Ancient temples, royal ruins and peaceful hills are just the start of the story

AMANKILA: Ancient temples, royal ruins and peaceful hills are just the start of the story

Amankila means ‘peaceful hill’, but the name is a little modest – the resort occupies a breathtaking hilltop spot on Bali’s east coast, with ancient, spiritual and regal neighbours here in the historic Karangasem Regency. Balinese culture dictates design details throughout: recurring motifs reference the ruins of the nearby water palace at Ujung; a three-tier infinity pool spills down the hillside like a cascading rice paddy. Thatched-roof Suites are set on stilts, just visible above the treetops, and are decorated with paras stone and furniture inlaid with pearl and coconut shell. A series of frangipani-lined walkways connects the property’s buildings, conceived by architect Ed Tuttle.

Suites at Amankila

Elevated on stilts to maximise sea views and nestled on a verdant hillside against the dramatic backdrop of Mt Agung, Amankila’s Suites overlook the waters of the Lombok Strait and a private beach

Spa & Wellness Experiences, Amankila

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

The hillside retreat of Amankila – romantic, serene, picturesque – is a gateway to Bali’s natural and cultural wonders

Dining at Amankila

The restaurant is open to guests and non-residents

Amankila’s ocean-view Restaurant focuses on locally sourced ingredients. Traditional local techniques are combined with contemporary cooking styles for revitalising cuisine. Ducks are raised at the resort’s free-range farm in Jasri village; herbs are grown in Amankila’s garden; and cold smoking is done in the smokehouse. Vegetables and exotic fruits are the result of the rich volcanic soil spread beneath Mt Agung

What makes Amankila so special?

Amankila is a special resort – perhaps Bali’s “hidden gems”.

The region of Manggis remains largely unexplored. You get to know authentic Bali.

Spa Treatments, Food and private boat excursions for the lovers of the ocean are the best.
