Indonesia Escapes & Hideaways

on the beach, Price upon request
Amanwana

Amanwana (which means "peaceful forest" and opened in 1993) is a nature camp and wilderness hideaway. Set in a secluded cove on the island's west coast, the camp is surrounded by tropical forest and looks out over Amanwana Bay and beyond to the Flores Sea. Medang Island, in the northwest, the rugged mountains of Sumbawa in the south and Lombok's volcanic Mt Rinjani are all visible from Moyo. The island is the "cork" in a natural bottleneck leading to Saleh Bay, a sheltered inland sea that is ideal for cruising and island hopping.

ACCOMMODATION

The camp's 20 luxury tents are set under a canopy of tropical forest. Each 58-square-metre tent is partially enclosed by a solid wall. There is a soft waterproof external roof and a separate canvas interior. A coral-stone deck surrounds each tent. Inside, the air-conditioned tents feature banks of windows, Indonesian island artwork, a sitting area with facing divans, king-size bed, a writing desk and a large bathroom. There is hardwood flooring throughout.

Sand paths link the tents to one another and lead to the beach, the dining room and reception. There are two room categories - Ocean-Front Tent and Jungle Tent. The only difference between the two is whether you prefer to be closer to the ocean or the jungle.

FOOD AND DINING

The Dining Room and Bar are located in an open-air pavilion facing the sea. Indonesian hardwood flooring and solid coconut pillars support the tropical structure. A selection of Asian and Western food is served at breakfast, lunch and dinner. In season, a regular alfresco barbecue is available as are Campfire dinners.

FACILITIES

Library: Amanwana's library specialises in Indonesian art and culture and has a wide range of books on marine life.

Music Pavilion: Located at the far end of the camp, a few metres from the shoreline, the Music Pavilion is a forest sanctuary. Here, you can listen to music, order picnic lunch and a bottle of wine, enjoy afternoon tea or a sunset cocktail.

Boardwalk: Snorkelling equipment, windsurfers, kayaks and hobie-cats are available from the thatched-roof bale close to the boardwalk. The boardwalk itself is furnished with beach chairs and shade umbrellas. A freshwater dipping pool is set against a wall of coral rock.

Dive Centre: A variety of superb dive spots are easily accessible from Amanwana. Guests can organise their underwater programme at the Dive Centre, which also offers a range of equipment.

Jungle Cove Massage: The Jungle Cove Massage area is just off the beach and under shady tamarind trees. Simple coral-stone walls divide the outdoor centre into three treatment areas, each including a recessed, soaking tub and a shower. Enjoy a massage, a fresh-fruit facial or a Borneo body scrub while watching the clouds gather about distant Mount Rinjani.

Gift Shop: A variety of East Indonesian craft and antiques can be found in the Gift Shop including textiles from Lombok, hand made pottery and locally-grown pearl jewellery.
