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 capital. Suites are connected to the reception and restaurant area by stepped walkways. Wireless broadband connections are available in all resort accommodations and public areas.
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.
These are identical to Garden Suites but have Ocean views.
Private swimming pools, enclosed within walls, are featured in six of the suites, four of which can be connected to adjacent garden or ocean suites for family or friends travelling together.
The Kilasari Suite, which takes its name from Amankila’s main temple, is perched high on the hillside, with views overlooking the sea and its own 12m infinity pool.
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, its own lounging bale and private pool.
This suite includes two separate bedrooms opening onto a large terrace with a private aquamarine-tile pool, two lounging bales, sunbeds, lily ponds, limitless views over the beach and Amuk bay and a private butler service. It is ideal for guests who want complete privacy or for two couples who wish to stay together.
The 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 signature three-tier 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, pizzas, Indonesian and Western light dishes for brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. Private dining is available in the suites 24 hours a day.
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. Windsurfers, boogie boards, kayaks and Hobie cats are located at the Beach Club. Amankila's staff will assist guests with water sports 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.
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. Games, CDs and a laptop for Internet access are also available.
The Boutique has a generous selection of unique Balinese art, crafts and antiques.
Traditional Balinese massage and beauty treatments are available in the privacy of the guests' suites, in the specially-designated massage pavilion or at the Beach Club where two teakwood massage tables are hidden away in a grove of coconut palms and flowering bushes.
Yoga classes can be taken amongst the coconut trees by the Beach Club or in the privacy of guests’ suites.
Aside from the 41m 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 down a stepped gradient similar to terraced fields.
Wireless broadband connections are available in all suites and public areas.
