Why we like it
- Located in central Bali, ten minutes from bustling Ubud
- Stunning views over rice paddies and the Ayung river
- Local teak and coconut wood create a décor of simple elegance
Amandari is located in central Bali and heavily influenced by local culture. River-stone walkways weave through lush vegetation interspersed with thatched-roofed suites, each fronted with a Balinese-style gateway and effortlessly combining local teak and coconut wood detail with an elegant simplicity of décor. With wall-sized glass doors opening onto beautiful garden courtyards they are a model of alfresco living, enhanced by glistening pools, a relaxed spa and restaurant with panoramic gorge views.
Ten minutes from the creative community of Ubud, the resort is the perfect base from which to explore. Temple ceremonies, gamelan performances, village festivals and the resort's full moon celebrations - including days of dance, music, film and exhibitions - offer a truly unique view of Balinese cultural traditions. If you want to get close to nature, we recommend an elephant safari, which explores a tropical forest landscape of rivers, volcanic mountains, rice terraces and sea vistas.
