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.
A winding stone path leads through the gardens to lily pond adjacent Amandari Spa, where holistic treatments draw inspiration from traditional Balinese Melukat purification ceremonies, body scrub treatments used by Javanese Royalty and Balinese acupressure. Aman Spa’s natural product range is used in all of the body treatments, massages and facials. Spa specialists in residence include fascia-focussed healers, numerology shamans and joy coaches.
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.
Extra beds are available, on request, in every room category for US$125 a night a person; please check with the reservations team if you require more than one extra bed.
