Coconut Grove Lawn
The most spectacular setting for a wedding at Amankila is at the Coconut Grove, on the expansive lawn nestled between coconut trees. The natural aisle will be laden with flowers with guest sitting on white cushioned benches under the shade of coconut palms. Candles light the path if you choose a dusk wedding.
The Coconut Grove itself is located below the resort. Guests can either walk through Coconut Grove to the beach, a five-minute stroll through verdant tropical gardens, or be taken in one of Amankila’s open-air buggies. Surrounded by coconut palms and partially shaded by a frangipani tree is Amankila’s largest swimming pool, overlooked by the Beach Club terrace restaurant. Windsurfers, boogie boards, stand up paddle boards, kayaks and Hobie Cats are available, and Amankila staff will assist guests with water sports and provide lessons or sailing partners if required.
The terrace of the Amankila Suite provides an alternative setting for smaller, more intimate weddings. Amankila’ s 31 free-standing suites, all with alang alang roof thatching, are designed as beach houses with a twist. They subtly reflect their East Bali surroundings with particular reference to Ujung, the Royal Water Palace just outside Amlapura, the district capital. Surrounded by frangipani trees and offering magnificent ocean views, the suites are situated on the hillside and are connected to the resort’s entrance pavilion and restaurant areas by stepped walkways.
Nine of Amankila’s suites, including the Kilasari, Indrakila and Amankila Suites, feature private pools. The Kilasari Suite, which takes its name from the picturesque temple on the property, is perched high on the hillside with views overlooking its own 12-metre infinity pool and the sea. The Indrakila Suite, named after the green hill upon which Amankila resides, enjoys privileged sea views past the temple point and far up the east coast. The Amankila Suite offers two separate bedrooms opening onto a large terrace with a private swimming pool, two lounging bales, sunbeds, tranquil lily ponds and beautiful views of Amuk Bay. This suite also offers a private butler service. For family or friends staying together, four of the Amankila pool suites can also interconnect with suites for expanded accommodation options.
Situated below the Restaurant, the Terrace restaurant is set back from the three-tiered main pool that cascades through the property's heart. Offering panoramic views, the venue is perfect for smaller seated dinners as well as cocktail receptions.
