Stunningly luxurious Amankila, meaning `peaceful hill' in Sanskrit, is built along the contours of an escarpment between two headlands in East Bali. Overlooking the Lombok Strait, views tumble down through the cliffside resort over beach to the glistening ocean and the curves of jutting headland beyond. The resort mirrors the flowing natural setting, expanding over four levels, sloping down to private shores. Set amongst natural vegetation and groves of mature tropical trees, Suites are elevated to take advantage of garden or ocean views, and some have their own pool. Follow a series of walkways and steps down to the bar and restaurant, and beyond to the Gallery, Shop and the Terrace restaurant beside a delightful 3-tiered swimming pool, which seemingly merges into the ocean. The Beach Club at the shoreline is spread amongst a throng of mature, shading coconut palms, with a 45 metre, turquoise tiled pool as the centrepiece. You'll never be far from a swim here! Contentment arrives easily. Simply relax on the beach, take a massage among flowering bushes close to the sea, or have a bite to eat on the patio next to the pool. However, touring the region is highly recommended. Visit the water palace of Tirtagangga and the island's opulent 'mother' temple, Besakih, or explore the nearby villages of Sidemen for textiles and Klungkung for distinctive Balinese art. To get away from it all, head to Amankila's bale in the mountain for a picnic, the hut overlooking pretty fields of rice and banana trees, or step aboard the hotel's boat for a pleasure cruise stopping for snorkelling.Elegant and quiet, this getaway provides the best of all worlds; hillside, ocean and beach; stylish seclusion yet convenience to some of Eastern Bali's most beautiful sights. Amankila will stay with you.
