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.
Although the resort has no spa as such, expert masseuses can provide a wide range of beauty and massage treatments in the privacy of your room or in the massage suite, including body scrubs, herbal baths, facials, manicures and pedicures.
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.
Food and building materials are all locally sourced where possible, and the resort has a recycling/composting programme in place.
