Enjoy luxury Bali, Indonesia travel to Amandari (peaceful spirits) which is located in the village of Kedewatan, on the fringe of Bali’s cultural capital, Ubud. Perched on an escarpment high above the winding Ayung River gorge, this luxury Balinese village resort follows the design of a traditional Balinese village. Pebbled walkways link the thatched-roof suites, each of which has its own walled garden. Amandari provides a unique setting from which to experience the cultural richness of Bali’s artistic center as well as its mountainous region to the north.

Amandari (peaceful spirits) is located about 60 minutes from Denpasar’s international airport, and 10 minutes from the arts community of Ubud in Central Bali.

Designed as a Balinese village, the property will provide you with a Bali luxury accommodation to remember that features andesite walkways and high paras-stone walls to mimic traditional local design. The pathway that runs through Amandari and down the valley to the river below is said to be sacred land. Every six months for hundreds of years, Balinese from the village of Kedewatan, where Amandari is located, have taken the path through the resort grounds down to a pool of holy water. Just above this spring-fed pool sit three modest shrines and a 7th-century tiger carved in stone.

Room Information

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.

Asmara Suite
The Asmara Suite and the Ayung Suite are duplexes with large private swimming pools and views of the rice terraces and valley below.

Amandari Suite
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. 

Amandari Villa
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.

Things To Do

Amandari can arrange personal guided excursions to any part of Bali. Popular day trips include Gunung Kawi – 11th-century temple monuments dedicated to King Anak Wungsu, Lake Batur, Mount Agung and Ceking, famous for its steep rice terraces.

Amandari guides have a thorough knowledge of the island and will develop a tour tailored to your needs. Although your guide will be happy to show you Bali’s most popular attractions, you may also want to visit locations not on the main tourist trail or parts of Bali that are less crowded, and therefore more peaceful and rewarding.

Ubud offers a wealth of arts and crafts with a myriad of small shops, art galleries, museums, painters’ studios and the colorful Pasar Seni market which trades in a wide range of clothing, sarongs and gift items. The nearby villages of Tegallang and Jati are noted for their woodcarvings and the village of Celuk is home to numerous jewelers, some of whom will custom-make pieces. South of Tabanan, in Pejaten, one can find traditional pottery.
