Mount Agung provides a dramatic backdrop for Amankila (peaceful hill), a secluded seaside resort overlooking the Lombok Strait. Spacious stilted villas offer exceptional views from their hillside locations amongst frangipani and bougainvillea, and are connected to the resort’s facilities by raised walkways. Guests can relax around the signature three-tiered pool or at the Beach Club on Amankila’s beach. What separates Amankila from other luxury Bali resorts is that it is situated in Karangasem, one of Bali’s most traditional regencies, Amankila also offers easy access to untouched rural countryside, Bali luxury travel, local crafts and the region’s royal past.
Amankila or 'peaceful hill' is an oasis of calm in the remote yet accessible regency of Karangasem, Bali’s most traditional regency. The area offers a host of activities from mountain biking and diving, to cultural excursions to temples and ancient water palaces.
The approach to Amankila builds a sense of anticipation as the long drive winds up, then down to the airy lobby. Surrounded by frangipani trees, the lobby affords exceptional ocean views, as well as views of the resort’s signature three-tiered pool. Down below the resort, set back from the private beach in a coconut grove, is the Beach Club which offers another pool, as well as casual dining. The 34 stilted free-standing suites are tucked into the lush vegetation around the resort, and all boast outstanding sea views.
The resort is close to Manggis, Candi Dasa, Tenganan and other villages where traditional crafts are still practiced, and outings to explore the region’s natural beauty are well worth the effort.
