Amankila, which means "peaceful hill", is a beautiful resort set against a dramatic backdrop of Mount Agung and the bright blue waters of the Lombok Strait. All 34 spacious villas are on stilts dotted about the verdant hillside with excellent views. With a host of activities, gorgeous food and great service, it is an ideal escape in Bali.
- What separates Amankila from other luxury Bali resorts is that it is situated in Karangasem, one of Bali's most traditional regencies. Amankila also offers easy access to untouched rural countryside, local crafts and the region's royal past.
