Amankila, Bali

By Will Grice

The villas of this peaceful resort dot the hillside of a secluded stretch on Bali’s east coast, with far-reaching views over the Lombok Strait and its own volcanic black-sand beach. Connected by elevated walkways, the stilted, thatched pool villas peer out from the treetops, with interiors combining warm wood design with an infusion of local artwork and pearl and coconut detail. Be sure to swim in the three-tiered, ocean-facing infinity pool mirroring Bali’s rice paddies, and try Balinese spa treatments in the massage pavilion or beach balé.

End the day with a yoga session — the resort recently introduced laughing yoga too. Sip on mangosteen cocktails at sunset and dine on locally grown Balinese cuisine by the pool.

Top suite: Amankila Suite from $3,200 per night

Sail away: Charter one of Amankila’s traditional jukung-style outriggers, or take out a Hobie Cat sailboat for an exhilarating afternoon exploring the coast.
