Amandari

Amandari (which means "peaceful spirits") opened in 1989. It is located about 45 minutes from Denpasar airport and five minutes from the art community of Ubud, in Central Bali. The village of Kedewatan lies adjacent to the resort. Designed as a Balinese village, Amandari has river-stone walkways and high paras-stone walls. The open-air lobby was designed after a wantilan, a village meeting place. The pathway that runs through Amandari and down the valley to the river below is sacred land. Every six months for hundreds of years, Balinese have taken the path down to a pool of holy water. Just above this spring-fed pool sit three modest shrines and an ancient tiger carved into rock.

ACCOMMODATION

Balinese-style stone gateways front Amandari's 30 walled, thatched-roof suites, each with a private garden courtyard. There is one premium villa as well.

Terrace/Village Suites: Each suite features a large combined bedroom and living room with all facilities, including a bar, music system and an outdoor sunken marble bath. There are twin vanities and dressing areas with separate shower and toilet rooms all with Javanese marble flooring.

Duplex/Valley Suites: Identical in size to the Terrace Suites, Duplex Suites feature a bedroom and queen-sized bed on a mezzanine level. This offers far more space on the ground floor.

Pool Terrace Suite: These are identical to the Terrace Suites but feature a private pool. Some have the pool immediately in front overlooking the Ayung Gorge while others look over paddy fields.

Pool Duplex Suite: These are the same as a Duplex Suite with the addition of a private pool.

Asmara and Ayung Suite: Both of these are Duplex Suites with private swimming pools and sweeping views of the nearby rice terraces and valley.

Amandari Suite: This suite offers one or two detached bedrooms along with a separate living room pavilion. There is also a private swimming pool and an outdoor bale of teak and bamboo with outstanding views of the Ayung Gorge.

Amandari Villa: Nestled in rice terraces by the resort, the villa includes five pavilions - three detached, terrace-style bedrooms, a separate living room walled entirely with windows, and a fully fitted kitchen. A garden and landscaped deck embrace the two-tiered swimming pool. The villa is less than a minute's drive from Amandari and a vehicle is on call.

ACCOMMODATION

The Restaurant, open to the breezes and crafted largely of teak wood, overlooks Amandari's swimming pool and the gorge.

It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and specialises in Western and local Indonesian dishes. The Bar, with its terrace seating, features a wide selection of drinks.

FACILITIES

Library: A broad selection of books, newspapers, CDs and games is available in the library. The Library also offers Internet and e-mail access.

Gift Shop and Gallery: A wide variety of Indonesian handicrafts, including baskets, silk, pottery and silverware, are available.

Spa and Gym: Amandari's health and fitness centre has been fitted with a fully equipped cardiovascular gym, offering wide-window views of the surrounding lotus pond. There is a Spa with beauty treatments, sauna and steam rooms, shower and change rooms and outdoor massage bales overlooking the pond.

Swimming Pool: Amandari's signature 32m green-tiled swimming pool, lying close to the lip of the gorge, flows with a feeling of old Bali.

Tennis: The hard court is floodlit for night play. Balls, rackets and tennis shoes are complimentary. Playing partners can also be arranged.
