Amandari is an intrinsic part of Kedewatan, a village that upholds the same age-old traditions and values that the Balinese, a people for whom family and happiness are paramount, have believed in and practiced for centuries.
Bali is located at the heart of the Indonesian archipelago. Its north coast faces the Bali Sea, while the southern coast is lapped by the Indian Ocean. The island is just two kilometres off the eastern tip of Java. For all its cultural richness, Bali is a small island, less than 150km from east to west and only about 80 km north to south. Bali has nearly three million people, most of whom still live in villages and small towns. Bali’s unique variant of Hinduism influences every aspect of island culture, from day-to-day village life to art, dance and music.
Bali is one of the most accessible destinations in Southeast Asia, with daily flights from most major cities in Asia and Australia. Travellers from the United States or Europe tend to fly via Singapore or Hong Kong. There are also domestic flights and ferry connections from the surrounding Indonesian islands.
Amandari is about one hour away from the Denpasar airport, and both Amankila and Amanusa are within easy reach for multiple resort breaks.
Set in an extinct volcanic crater, Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club is considered one of the most beautiful golf settings in the world. Two other renowned courses in Bali include the Bali National Golf Resort and Nirwana Golf Club.
Reservations and transportation can be arranged through Amandari; the drive takes around an hour.
Amandari’s 32-metre, green-tiled swimming pool lies close to the lip of the gorge and overlooks the rice terraces below. Every evening, gamelan players perform from the music pavilion behind the pool. This is also a venue for regular Balinese dance performances by local children.
A hard court is floodlit for night play. Balls, rackets and tennis shoes are available and playing partners can also be arranged.
The gym is fitted with cardiovascular equipment and looks out onto the lotus pond surrounding the spa facility.
A selection of books, newspapers, CDs, DVDs and games is available in the Library, along with Internet access. A bale just outside provides a relaxing garden setting for reading over coffee, tea or a cocktail.
The open-air Restaurant, crafted largely of teak, overlooks Amandari’s swimming pool and the Ayung Valley. Western and local Indonesian dishes are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The adjacent Bar, with its terrace seating, enjoys a similar setting and views.
The Amandari Spa offers a wide range of beauty and wellness treatments from facials and massage services to manicures and scrubs, all employing soothing natural ingredients. Traditional Balinese treatments such as the Mandi Lulur (cream bath) are also available. Two open-air massage bales overlook a tranquil lily pond.
Private yoga classes are available in an outdoor setting with Amandari’s own yoga teacher.
The Amandari Suite offers one or two detached bedrooms along with a separate living room pavilion. An outdoor dining bale of teak and bamboo is set within its spacious tropical garden. From the suite’s private swimming pool, guests enjoy picturesque views.
The Asmara Suite and the Ayung Suite are duplexes with large private swimming pools and views of the rice terraces and valley below.
The Amandari Villa, nestled in rice terraces less than a minute’s drive from the resort, overlooks the verdant Ayung River Gorge and terraced rice fields. Serviced by two staff, it is a 1,500 square metre Balinese-style compound which includes five pavilions: three detached, terrace-style bedrooms; a separate living room walled entirely in windows and sliding glass doors; and a fully-fitted kitchen. A dining bale with marble flooring and coconut-wood posts features a round table and rattan chairs for six people to enjoy alfresco dining. A garden and landscaped deck embrace an expansive, two-tiered swimming pool, finished in pale green tiles to match the surrounding paddy fields. A vehicle is always on call should villa guests wish to take advantage of any of Amandari’s facilities.
