With sacred Mount Agung as its backdrop and unimpeded views of the Lombok Strait, Mankila enjoys a breathtaking hilltop spot in the historic Karangasem Regency, on Bali’s east coast.
References to Balinese culture abound – in the motifs inspired by the water palace at nearby Ujung; in the paras stone decorating the stilted and thatched suites; and in the spectacular infinity pool that cascades in three tiers down the hillside, reminiscent of a rice paddy.
Stretching from hilltop to private beach, the property lies within reach of atmospheric temples and artisan villages.
Raised on stilts and thatched with alang-alang, Amankila’s 33 suites – nine with private pools – enjoy ocean or garden views, and consummate privacy.
Decorated with inlaid pearl and coconut-shell furniture, all suites feature canopied kingsize beds, a living area, large bathroom with a soaking tub, and outdoor terraces.
In addition to Amankila’s main dining venues, guests can enjoy daily afternoon tea on the steps of the library.
Staff in traditional dress supply guests with Indonesian ginger tea, Bali kopi, and cakes.
