Property Overview

With sacred Mount Agung as its backdrop and unimpeded views of the Lombok Strait, Amankila enjoys a breathtaking hilltop spot in the historic Karangasem Regency, on Bali’s east coast. References to Balinese culture abound – in the motifs inspired by the water palace at nearby Ujung; in the paras stone decorating the stilted and thatched suites; and in the spectacular infinity pool that cascades in three tiers down the hillside, reminiscent of a rice paddy. Stretching from hilltop to private beach, the property lies within reach of atmospheric temples and artisan villages.

Rooms + Suites

Laid-back luxury in a very private setting.

Raised on stilts and thatched with alang-alang, Amankila’s 33 suites – twelve with private pools – enjoy ocean or garden views, and consummate privacy. Decorated with inlaid pearl and coconut-shell furniture, all suites feature canopied king-size beds, a living area, large bathroom with a soaking tub, and an outdoor terraces.

Some favorite accomomdations here include the Indrakila Suite complete with a private 9.2-metre pool and beautiful views stretching past the temple and far along the east coast. We also love the Kilasari Suite, perched high on the hillside with views of the ocean and its own private 12-metre infinity pool. Finally, the Amankila Suite is truly impressive; this two bedroom accommodations opens onto a large terrace – ideal for guests wanting complete privacy – or for two couples who wish to stay together. The Amankila Suite also offers private butler service, its own 11-metre pool, two lounging bales, sunbeds and views of the beach along with Amuk Bay.
Pool + Gym

Iconic and relaxing.

The iconic Amankila three tiered pool overlooks the ocean and is the perfect place to relax. Or, if guests wish to be more active, the fitness pavilion is equipped with a treadmill, an elliptical trainer and free weights. Private or group yoga classes are also offered. The Beach Club includes a 41-meter pool, laying under the coconut trees.

Deep transformation and healing.

Traditional Balinese massage and beauty treatments are available in-suite, in the Massage Pavilion, or hidden among foliage at the Beach Club. Holistic practitioners offer treatments ranging from hypnotherapy to reiki in addition to massage. Healers, trained to facilitate deep transformation, utilize a variety of tools to assist with awakening and healing for guests.
Restaurants + Bar

Delicious fare with a stunning view.

The Restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and is complete with views of the ocean. For lunch, The Terrace by the main pool open as well as The Beach Club which serves salads. These open-air restaurants offer stunning views along with the delish food! Some must-try drinks include the Kemangi margarita, Tamarind cooler, Southside and Kila daiquiri.
