Balinese-style stone gateways front Amandari’s 30 walled, freestanding thatched-roof suites. Coconut wood and teak are used throughout, while the bamboo-frame roofs layered with alang alang thatching emit a fresh, rural fragrance. Luxury accommodations are divided into Village, Valley and Pool Suite categories. Some enjoy views of the Ayung River Gorge and surrounding paddy fields. Pool Suites feature private plunge pools.
All suites offer a garden courtyard, living area and wall-sized sliding glass doors that open on three sides to lush surroundings. The bathroom features twin vanities and dressing areas, a separate shower and toilet, and an outdoor sunken marble bath behind a glass door. Walled but entirely open to the sky, the sunken tub is framed by large stone planters of ferns and heliconia. Suites come either as a single-story or two-level duplex. The duplexes have a queen-size, four-poster bed on a mezzanine level while the single-story suites offer a king-size bed.
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 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 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 meter 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.
