Indonesia Escapes & Hideaways

on the beach, Price upon request

The AmanKila (which means peaceful hill) opened in 1992 set on a cliff side overlooking the Lombok Strait in East Bali. Below the resort is its private stretch of sand and beach club. From the intimate, airy lobby, the views are already very much in evidence. The resort is close to Manggis, Candi Dasa, Tenganan and other villages in Karangasem, Bali's most traditional regency.


Amankila's suites are elevated to take advantage of the spectacular views to the sea and surrounding hillsides. The 34 free-standing suites, with their alang alang roof thatching, are fashioned as beach houses with a twist. They reflect the lines and flow of their East Bali surroundings, in particular the royal water palace just outside Amlapura, the district's capital. All suites are connected to the reception and restaurant area by stepped walkways.

Superior Suite: Each suite features a large bedroom with wide window views, a canopied, king-size bed and a writing desk. The bathroom is divided, with a window-side divan, a soaking tub and separate shower and toilet rooms which give way to coconut-shell dressing areas and double terrazzo vanities. The suite's outdoor terrace is furnished with a daybed, coconut-shell table and rattan chairs.

Deluxe Suite: These are identical to the Superior Suites but have better Ocean views.

Deluxe Ocean Suite: These offer panoramic ocean views over the Amuk Bay.

Deluxe Pool Suite: There are nine pool suites with private pools enclosed within walls, three of which can be connected to deluxe suites and one to a superior suite if a family or group of friends wish to have more privacy.

The Kilasari Suite: The Kilasari Suite, which takes its name from Amankila's main temple, is perched high on the hillside, with partial sea views, a 12-metre pool and its own separate entrance.

The Indrakila Suite: Named after the green hill upon which Amankila sits, this suite enjoys privileged sea views past the temple point and far up the East coast.

The Amankila Suite: This suite includes two separate pavilions opening onto a large terrace with a private aquamarine-tile pool, two lounging bales, sun beds, lily ponds and limitless views over the beach and Amuk bay. It is ideal for guests who want complete privacy or for two couples who wish to stay together.


AmanKila's Restaurant, located above the main pool overlooking the ocean, is open for dinner. The menu features a mix of Western and Indonesian cuisine. Adjacent to the Restaurant is Amankila's Bar, with its views to the sea. The Terrace, set just back from the main pool is open for breakfast and lunch and serves Asian and Western cuisine. Afternoon tea is served daily in front of the Library, where local women dressed in sarongs and kebayas offer Indonesian ginger tea, Bali kopi and local Balinese cakes. The Beach Club offers a simple menu of salads, Indonesian and Western light dishes for brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. Private dining is available in the suites 24hrs a day.


Beach Club: The Beach Club is located at the base of the cliff five minutes below the main resort. Guests can either walk to the beach or be driven there in one of Amankila's open-air buggies. Set within a grove of coconut palms and partially shaded by a frangipani tree, is Amankila's largest swimming pool. Snorkelling equipment, windsurfers, boogie boards, kayaks and hobie-cats are located at the Beach Club. Amankila's staff will assist guests with watersports and provide lessons or sailing partners if required. Eight private lounging bales are set in the sand, each secluded amongst the foliage for added privacy. Drinks and light meals can be enjoyed here.

Swimming Pools: Aside from the Beach Club pool, Amankila's signature three-tier pool dominates the landscape just below the lobby. Set into the cliff-edge, the blue-tiled pools face the sea and flow one into the other, stepping down like terraced fields. The main pool is 41 metres in length.

Library: The library is rimmed with floor-to-ceiling windows. Oversized daybeds allow guests to relax and enjoy the wide selection of books, newspapers and magazines.

Gallery and Shop: The Gallery and Shop has a generous selection of Balinese art, crafts and antiques.

Massage and Beauty Treatments: Traditional Balinese massage and beauty treatments are available in the privacy of the guest suites, in the specially-designated massage pavilion or at the Beach Club where twoteakwood massage tables are hidden away in a grove of coconut palms and flowering bushes.

Amankila Bales: Bale Tirta Sira and Ketug Bale are located up in the hills of East Bali offering spectacular views of rice fields, banana trees and Amuk Bay. These balés are ideally placed as a picnic spot after a jeep tour, trek or cycle through the countryside.
