Amankila, which means “peaceful hill” in Sanskrit, is built along the contours of an escarpment between two headlands in Eastern Bali. Located near the villages of Candi Dasa and Padang Bai, the estate set on 11 hectares provides a beach getaway
in surroundings of heritage and serene elegance. From here, guests have an opportunity to explore the rich Balinese traditions prevalent in this preserved cultural and historical area that is East Bali, as well as enjoying swimming, cruising and snorkeling.
The estate’s main building consists of three levels. On the uppermost level is the arrival court and Lobby. One level below is the Bar and Restaurant. The Library, Gallery, Shop and Terrace Restaurant are all on the third level. All public areas command spectacular ocean views across Lombok and Badung Straits. The main swimming pool is terraced through three levels decreasing in size while appearing to descend into the ocean. Steps from the central area descend to the Beach Club, set within a coconut grove on the sand. The club has an informal restaurant, a 41 metre swimming pool and a beautiful secluded beach with lounging bales and sun beds. Hobie cats, boogie boards, windsurfers and kayaks are available at the beach.
Perched on the side of a cliff overlooking the ocean, Amankila is a haven of tranquility. Chic and understated, it draws on the traditional architecture of the region and is possibly one of the most romantic destinations in Asia. Amankila is an oasis of calm in the remote yet accessible Regency of Karangasem, Bali’s most traditional regency.
