Claiming a breathtaking stretch of coastline on the Lombok Strait, Amankila rests on a lush hillside beneath sacred Mount Agung. Connected by frangipani-lined walkways through the treetops, stilted suites offer spectacular views high on the hillside, while a three-tier infinity pool cascades at the property’s heart and the Beach Club leads to a private black-sand beach. Located in Manggis, Candidasa Karangasem Bali, Amankila is one of the most luxurious resort in Bali.

Set in East Bali, where water palaces speak of the region’s royal past and temples honour the island’s gods, Amankila’s dramatic setting makes it one of the most captivating destinations in Asia. But it is not just its beauty that makes this serene retreat such a special place for private celebrations.

Meaningful aspects of Balinese traditions and culture imbue every occasion with a real sense of place and the almost tangible tranquillity so unique to the Island of the Gods. Purifying Mandi Lulur bathing rituals can be incorporated into wedding preparations, while event spaces are blessed with the presence of Penjor (bamboo flags) that symbolise Mount Agung. Traditional music sets the scene at parties and receptions, and ancient dances – whether the romantic Oleg Tambulilingan or the refined Legong – entertain and delight.
