Amankila, MANGGIS, BALI, Indonesia
If super-cool accommodation with a smart Indonesian twist, cascading azure pools with exquisite sea views and divine spa treatments served up on peppered sands float your boat, then look no further.
into a cliff facing out over the sparkling Lombok Strait, this is quite simply
a heartbreakingly-beautiful spot where the only pressure is deciding which
chilled cocktail or holistic massage to plump for. While the superb service (the personal kind that most hotel-goers only
dream of) really
sets this resort apart, it’s a bit of a looker too with beaches, water palaces and rice fields all around you. The elegantly-tapered,
three-tiered pool is sensational, while the cliffside location makes for the
most breathtaking of views.
Just 34 suites are scattered throughout the resort, with stone, shell and bamboo echoing the surrounding
natural beauty (if you can, stretch to a pool villa, where the spacious
terraces and vistas are completely unforgettable). But a word of warning: make sure you really
like the person you’re travelling with as it’s wonderfully secluded.
