Though you can find more tech-savvy spots in Bali for a similar price point, the refined charm boasted here makes it a worthy contender. Prized features include secluded location, top-notch design, fantastic food and unique experience.

Stay at Amankila

A remote position in East Bali grants Amankila paradise status. Imagine 6.3 verdant hectares, dedicated to 60 guests. Add to this the brand’s long standing history on the island, and you’re left with a resort that delivers on every single front.Reside in a soothing treetop villa that holds the intimacy of home. Devour breakfasts out on your terrace, every day a new feast of fruit, pastries and eggs accompanied by birdsong. Daily massages in your suite embed native practices. The black-sand beach below dazzles at every turn. Enjoy off-the-beaten-track visits to indigenous villages and palaces, followed by authentic Indonesian dishes overlooking the Lombok Strait.


Situated in a low-key area in Manggis along the Balinese east coast, the property is a 90-minute drive from the airport. A handful of local attractions are dispersed nearby, however the vibe is definitely more languid lounging than action-packed exploring.


Raised walkways winding through the treetops lead to 34 freestanding villas. Each offers ample space, a style reminiscent of island beach huts and minimalist decor that grants a highly homely mood. Warm woods and local art elevate interiors further.

Who is it for

This is an ideal escape for those looking for privacy. Couples will likely find the place enchanting, however accommodation also caters to families in both amenities and size. Babysitting services are readily available and kids under 12 stay free.

Facilities & activities

A luxurious three-tiered pool steals the show, with steps down the hill to a fourth pool and volcanic beach. While there’s no spa, in-room treatments are arrangeable. A brilliant concierge team is on-hand to organise exclusive excursions. Finally, there's an open-air main restaurant, or guests can opt to dine at the beach club or poolside.
