Inspired by a traditional village, Amandari is framed by jungle and rice terraces in Bali’s cultural heartland. Thatched houses – some with pools, all with private tropical gardens – have guests staying under bamboo ceilings with suites elegantly outfitted in teak and coconut-wood. The grounds are both sacred and essential to local families: children attend dance classes here. Guests will enjoy seeing religious processions pass through regularly, leading down the steps that spill below Amandari to a 7th-century stone tiger – a motif repeated throughout the property. They are welcome to follow the road out of the village to hike or bike the emerald-green landscape; or, head further afield for artisan villages, hidden temples, and the palaces and boutiques of Ubud.
Surrounded by traditional paras-stone walls, each of the freestanding suites is accessed by a traditional Balinese stone gateway, leading to private courtyard gardens and sumptuous interiors.
The 32-metre, green-tiled main pool lies close to the edge of the gorge with spectacular views of the rice terraces. An adjacent music pavilion hosts nightly gamelan players and regular dance performances. There’s also a fitness center offering cardiovascular equipment overlooking the lotus pond.
The spa comprises two open-air bales, a beauty room, sauna and a marble steam room and is complete with an exhaustive treatment menu featuring local Balinese ingredients renowned for their soothing properties. Guests will feel calmed by this serene setting on a lotus pond (on which the bales appear to float). Treatments can also be booked in-suite, or in a bale overlooking the Ayung valley.
Exposed to cooling mountain breezes, the open-air main restaurant and adjacent bar enjoy spectacular views of the pool and the Ayung River. Offering fine tropical dining from breakfast through to dinner, the restaurant serves up a sophisticated menu of Indonesian and Western dishes. An upper level provides an ideal space for more intimate dinners, while private dining is available in-suite, 24-hours a day.
Be sure to try the signature drinks, the Ubud Suargan and Amandari Cobler!
The property could be suited to either families or couples.
