Why we like it
- Situated upon a cliff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Lombok strait
- Dramatic three-tiered pool set into the cliffside
- Karangasem Regency inspired architecture
Amankila, or peaceful hill, perches on a cliff above a stretch of unspoilt private beach on the Lombok Strait. The definition of understated chic, it draws inspiration from the architecture of the surrounding Karangasem Regency, with 31 free-standing suites fashioned as beach houses with a twist. All are connected to the reception, restaurant and pool areas by stepped walkways enveloped in the scent of frangipani and tuberose.
Relax and enjoy the fabulous location by one of the three terraced pools, enjoy a spa treatment or descend to the beach where you can soak up the tropical sun from the comfort of a secluded bale. If you want to explore further afield, take to the sea in a traditional Jukung outrigger or embark on one of a wide range of fascinating cultural excursions. Finish the day with a sunset satay feast, offering an authentic taste of Balinese cuisine with candlelit views across rice fields and Amuk Bay beyond.
