Warning to people who have read the bad reviews on this hotel...
There is a certain type of person who doesn't like Amandari, and it is normally the type that like sleek modern state of the art type places by the sea. Normally these people MUCH prefer Amankila. There is nothing wrong with this, but Amandari isn't really that kind of place.
I went to both Amandari and Amankila and I have to say, Amandari had this AMAZING atmosphere that just consumed me. Whenever I think of my stay there I'm transported to a completely different place, and a massive smile spreads accross my face. And that's exactly how I'm going to describe it; as how it made me feel. Obviously it is gorgeous and the service is just out of this world, but it's an aman hotel! You are going to get that no matter which one you go to!
Amandari really feels Balinese. And if you have booked it already, do bring walking/hiking shoes and clothes you don't mind getting dirty, because you don't want to miss the numerous and amazing activities they have on offer. Trust me. We actually extended our stay there as there was so much to do! Oh, the spa is awesome as well!
In conclusion - Magical
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Amandari (meaning peaceful spirits) is located in the village of Kedewatan, on the fringe of Bali's cultural capital, Ubud. Perched on an escarpment high above the winding Ayung River gorge, this resort follows the design of a traditional Balinese village. Pebbled walkways link the thatched-roof suites, each of which has its own walled garden. Amandari provides a unique setting from which to experience the cultural richness of Bali's artistic centre as well as its mountainous region to the north. ... more less
