Amankila, Manggis, Bali

Look down into the pool and you’ll see reflections of the serene green hillside and towering palm trees. Look up and you’ll have stunning views of the sea.

Amankila Resort specialises in serenity. It stands on a quiet green hillside amidst cool, shaded tropical gardens. And it has a cascade of tiered, infinity edge swimming pools presenting you with panoramic views stretching out over the gently rolling sea, towards the Lombok Strait and the distant blue horizon. The effect is mesmeric, and if you were to do nothing but gaze out over the water you would come to experience total inner peace.

But, of course, there’s so much more to do on your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Bali. There’s a private beach and coconut grove to stroll through. There are water sports like scuba diving, sailing and paddle boarding. Villages hidden amongst rice paddies to visit. Temples and a floating palace to tour and outrageously beautiful views to photograph.
