Great view overlooking the forest and river at the AmanDari. Given the general faster flow in Ubud, I think some of that feeling spills over into the Aman. If you are looking for tranquility and must stay in ubud, this or the Four Seasons are probably the best places, though I found stays at other Amans in Bali more peaceful

Everything you love at Aman resorts you'll find at Amandari. They were especially welcoming to out children ages 5 and 8. We had friends with children visit us for the afternoon, and without discussing our guests beforehand, the Aman staff with their "jedi" skills knew their names and preferences.

The front desk staff spent nearly every evening with the kids searching for frogs on the property. When we left there were lots of good-bye hugs. We really felt at home and the location in Ubud (not in the main shopping district, but set away on a hillside in the jungle) was stunning. Do explore the property and the steps leading down to the river. We all loved listening to the calls of the jungle before falling asleep and following the butterflies to breakfast each morning.

There are three Aman resorts in Bali. Don't miss Amandari!

The experience with Amandari did not start well as we had to wait for our car one hour at the airport. However, because of that, we got a double upgrade to a pool villa, from our Village suite, a complimentary massage and dinner. It was therefore worth the wait. This shows you how much effort the staff puts in the guests being happy.

The food was very nice, much better than Como Shambala for instance and you have a wide selection that 3 days did not cover for us to taste.

The spa is great, we had massage and facial, Suwisi was amazing, if you can I would choose her!

The resort:you get the feeling of being secluded from everything in your hotel and in your villa, the private pool is stunning, the beds are ultra comfortable, rooms are massive, you get a beautiful view of the jungles from the villa we stayed. The Viceroy hotel view was nicer I believe as it was more cliffy. We went to Viceroy for lunch (see our review). We would not mind next time staying at the Viceroy too.

We felt from the Aman experiences we had that the resorts try to keep the traditional feeling to them. So if you are looking for that, Amandari is the right place for you.

There are a lot of activities you can do in the resort and outside the resort: tennis, gym which is bigger than any other Aman we have been in Indonesia (Amankila and Amanjiwo).

If I had to rate the Aman that we have been to so far in order of general preference I would put 1- Amanpulo (Philippines) 2- Amandari 3- Amankila and 4 -Amanjiwo.

Outside activities that we did: elephant ride, very nice but 30min is enough
-rafting, fun and good exercise... beautiful to see the jungle from down there, but beware of the steps to go down to the river.
-dinner at Mozaic, worth the experience for the atmosphere
- monkey forest, ok if you like monkeys why not they climb on you and eat banana on your head
- we went to see the healer of eat pray love, its ok, just worth going to take a picture of him otherwise ask your guide for a better healer/fortune teller
- cycling through the villages/ rice fields / eat pray love path, definitely worth it
- elephant cave, OK not great
- center of Ubud was OK, not a lot of nice shopping. Very touristy...

We are ending our honeymoon here and have had everything organised by Remote Lands. We usually organise our trips ourselves but this time we thought we could not manage wedding and honeymoon at the same time and to be honest we do not regret it. The guide they provided us here in Ubud was not great but apart from that the organisation was faultless and you get a lot of complimentary things (massages/dinner...). You also feel like you have a contact in Indonesia, wherever you go, someone to speak to in case you need anything from someone local (we asked to bring wine to the airport for instance and they organised it instantly). If you are interested, ask for Catherine.

Didn't stay here this visit due to time constraints - had only 2 nights in Bali and arrival time was past 11pm...nevertheless, made it a point to visit this beautiful resort and to have a meal there at least. Mum told the guide we definitely want to visit Amandari during our few hours in Ubud...the manager and staff were all very friendly, showing us around the hotel...the shop at the resort has the best shopping for quality souvenirs, we spent more than an hour in the shop alone...Loved the food at the restaurant - best meal we had in Bali - the Mee Goreng and Laksa rocks!!! Will love to come back!

We had only two days this time for the Ubud area. And therefor we got the car to bring us early morning to the Amandari. We were lucky to have the same room as in earlier visits. A view on a rice field with people working on it.
We felt as of we had not been away. This resort is still in top condition. The location with its view is magnificent. The most beautiful pool. Food is great at the restaurant. The staff is Amanlike, attentive, easy, funny and relaxed.
There are resorts that try to copy Amandari, but if you want the real Amanfeeling don't even try elsewhere.
We will be back ASAP.

Room Tip: View on the rice fields or the valley.
