Our favourite rooms
For the chance to bask and bathe in privacy, plump for one of the eight Pool Suites, which have their own water-hole and sizeable terrace. All Amanusa’s suites have veil-draped four-posters, canopied day-beds, sunken baths and outdoor showers. The Deluxe Suites have views of the ocean, or – should you prefer the links to the drink – the golf course.
The enormous pool sits behind a high paras-stone wall and a colonnade laden with bougainvillea. The scent of frangipani wafts around the water and gamelan players often provide a haunting soundtrack to sunset.
The Bali Golf and Country Club sits on Amanusa’s doorstep, and can provide all you need for a turn on the green – comedy jumpers excepted.
Non-smoking suites available on request.
Amanusa is great for kids – if booked in advance, staff can arrange free babysitting for four hours – after that it’s US$10 an hour.
