guests and they are grateful of us," Tristan said.
e other testament comes in the fact that Manggis is a good
hour at least from the hustle of Bali's Airport and Seminyak/
Jimbaran areas -- Aman still have a resort closer to the action but
guests at Amankila are deadly serious about one thing, and that's
seeking complete solace.
ere is just one restaurant at Amankila but it's variety on a
daily basis leaves most restaurants to shame. A fusion of western,
Asian and even middle eastern influence can be found as well as an
adjacent bar with cocktails and appeterifs, but as aforementioned
there's not much you can't ask for at Amankila.
Terrazzo, coconut wood detailing, brass fittings, custom
amenities that lead you on a sensory journey everywhere you go
and some suites with private pools and you'll never want to leave -
that's the idea.
Just like the Manggis temple that sits adjacent, the resort grounds
have no imposing neighbours or noises, they have their own energy
channel, reflecting the culture, serenity and the majesty of this
reason -- luxury is bounded only by the imagination.
JUST A SHORT drive from Bali's hotspots in Nusa Dua, Amanusa
overlooks the fairways of Bali National Golf Club and out to the
Indian Ocean -- this coastal enclave is a monument to a high
luxury just minutes from the chaos of the Bali scene.
Amanusa has all the amenities you'd expect of a top caliber
resort; two tennis courts, a beach club, library, a restaurant
overlooking the best of the area -- including fine Italian dining.
It's a true multicultural gem in an area of Asian contrasts.
e beach club sits along one of Bali's most beautiful stretches of
coastlines and is far enough away from the secluded villas to make
staying at Amanusa a constant discovery.
Most villas have a private pool but the real talking point is
the massive 30 metre pool that greets guests on arrival as the
panorama takes you as far as the eye can see -- right across the
peninsula. e large villas are among the most spacious one
bedroom villas in Bali, large bathrooms including outdoor shower
and private terrace in traditional Balinese décor. Although the
finishes are beyond traditional, true luxury is embodied in the
fittings and fixtures that all equate to Nusa Dua's most exclusive
and customised experience for guests.
Moss covered paths, large amounts of natural stone and
immaculate gardens give Amanusa a lived-in feel, nothing about
its location and lifestyle conducive layout speaks, 'hotel'. Guests
come for the experience but also to have the option to access the
best of Bali in a short car ride. 4,000 square metres of land is enough
reason in itself to stay put, "We can sometimes lose guests to other
areas and restauarants in Bali a little more than some of our other
properties purely down to our location but what makes us unique
is that you can stay a week and be completely self-sufficient or you
can hit the shops in Bali too. For our guests, that's luxury," said
General Manager Michael Bachmann.
"We are on hand to respond to whatever experience our guests
may want," he said.
Massages are available in the privacy of a personal suite or in the
spa suite -- customised to a level like never before, the resort will
spend some time with each guest asking what it is they prefer
before hand-picking the best therapist to suit.
e customised Balinese massage is the resort's true signature,
conducted by spiritual 'healers' there's no wonder guests don't go
offsite, there's also a boutique that has a variety of hand-crafted
gifts and amenities ensuring that any guests' desires can be (aimed
to be) met whether you're at the beach club having a snack, a cycle
or a kayak before heading to dinner, if there's something you've
forgotten the service lies in promise that there's no one size fits all
approach at Amanusa.
AMANDARI IS NOT a typical Bali resort, instead it affords guests
wanting to get in touch with the traditional Bali an uncommon
base of luxury among the rice fields and creative flavours of Ubud.
An experience at Amandari is poised for true interpersonal
connection, local artisans hand-crafted the stone walls around the
entrances and walkways, the villas are also some of the most unique
you'll find in Bali, hand-sewn silk wall panels, wood and a window
above the bed that conjures the sense of a natural plant-inspired
bed-head -- it is a true reflection of the artistic culture of the area.
Just 8km from the monkey forest and a short drive from the carved
caves of Goah Gajah, Amandari is designed to bring the outside-in
-- perched high above the Ayung river gorge -- each villa and suite
has a unique design of hand-carved stone, marble and refreshing
warm tones, not often seen in Bali. Guests can dine intimately in the
rainforest with a private chef, or hand-pick their favourite Asian and
western cuisine in the open air restaurant. e spa also has an open
air massage area where the crisper air of Ubud can be truly enjoyed.
At Amandari it's all about the open door policy as General
Manager, Delanie Vos says -- "Amandari has been designed to enjoy
the outdoors - for guests to explore what's around us but also feel
that they can relax without the resort feel," she said.
Natural tones, textures and activities designed around the
dynamic landscape, at Amandari the destination is a product of
each and every guest.
