My wife and I stayed at Anamaya for 2 nights in Jan 010. First of all, you can't talk about Anamaya without mentioning the view. It's absolutely stunning. There is a giant yoga deck and a small infinity pool which exploit the view to great effect. We stayed in 'Bali house' which was by far the most unique and beautiful room we stayed in during our whole vacation. It has all glass walls with draw curtains, shares the same view as the deck, and has an outdoor bathroom that looks out over the Ocean. It should be mentioned that this is more of a retreat center than 5 star hotel. If you expect the kind of service and attention that you'd get for a similar amount of money at a hotel, you might not find it here. The staff is friendly and wonderful, they just don't have personnel and infrastructure to provide that kind of experience. This was more than fine for my wife and I, and we actually preferred this experience. For instance, there isn't really a menu. Dinner is prepared based on what they have (beautiful organic produce) and what you request. That was ideal for us. All the bungalows are unique and beautiful. The management is flexible and accommodating. This would be an ideal place for a destination wedding. I would say that if you are looking for a unique and relaxing escape and are not going to be fussy about being waited upon, you will love this place as much as we did.
