“Peaceful hill retreat”

To brave the steps and be awarded by clifftop views across the Lombok Strait? Or stay close to the water’s edge nearer to the three-tier infinity pool? Choose to never leave any of the 31 stilted suites (not a difficult task at an Aman resort), or opt to spend the day at the resort beach club. Strike out and visit ancient crafts villages, or stay in and enjoy the traditional dance performances at the resort. At Amankila, there are simply no wrong choices. With the looming Mount Agung in the background, the all-suite resort is as awe-inspiring as they come.

Best time to visit : April to September

The Restaurant
The Restaurant
Amankila’s ocean-view Restaurant focuses on locally sourced ingredients. Traditional local techniques are combined with contemporary cooking styles for revitalising cuisine. Ducks are raised at the resort’s free-range farm in Jasri village; herbs are grown in Amankila’s garden; and cold smoking is done in the smokehouse. Vegetables and exotic fruits are the result of the rich volcanic soil spread beneath Mt Agung.

Amankila

Claiming a breathtaking stretch of coastline on the Lombok Strait, Amankila resides on a lush hillside beneath sacred Mount Agung. Architect Ed Tuttle was inspired by Ujung Water Palace and the property’s graceful buildings are connected by frangipani-lined walkways through the treetops. Stilted suites rest high on the hillside with spectacular sea views, a three-tier infinity pool cascades at the property’s heart, and down on the shore, the Beach Club leads to a private black-sand beach.
