Pebbled walkways link the thatched-roof suites, each of which has its own walled garden. Amandari provides a unique setting from which to experience the cultural richness of Bali’s artistic centre as well as its mountainous region to the north.
Amandari (peaceful spirits) is located about 60 minutes from Denpasar’s international airport, and 10 minutes from the arts community of Ubud in Central Bali.
Designed as a Balinese village, the property will provide you with a bali luxury accommodation to remember that features andesite walkways and high paras-stone walls to mimic traditional local design. The pathway that runs through Amandari and down the valley to the river below is said to be sacred land. Every six months for hundreds of years, Balinese from the village of Kedewatan, where Amandari is located, have taken the path through the resort grounds down to a pool of holy water. Just above this spring-fed pool sit three modest shrines and a 7th-century tiger carved in stone.
The open-air Restaurant, crafted largely of teak, overlooks Amandari’s swimming pool and the Ayung Valley. Western and local Indonesian dishes are served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The adjacent Bar, with its terrace seating, enjoys a similar setting and views.
A selection of books, newspapers, CDs, DVDs and games is available in the Library, along with Internet access. A bale just outside provides a relaxing garden setting for reading over coffee, tea or a cocktail.
