Our favourite rooms
We love the duplex Asmara and Ayung Suites, as these come with an upstairs bedroom and downstairs living area. Alternatively, Pool Suites 14 and 15 are extremely private, and have the advantage of coming with their own swimming pools.
Palm tree-shaded loungers overlook a 32-metre infinity pool, lined with green tiles, which offers views of the lush forest and rice paddies beyond.
Bring a pair of trainers – after a couple of days of all-out relaxation, you’ll be itching to get up and play tennis, or take a long walk around Amandari’s stunning grounds.
Balinese <i>rindik</i> music – played on a bamboo flute – is played in the pool area between 7pm and 9pm each night. The sounds then float up atmospherically to where guests sit in the bar and restaurant.
This hotel is better suited to couples - leave the children at home!
