This property is on my top 5 list of properties in the world. I favor small boutique hotels and this one is perfect. Beautiful setting with views of the temple in the distance and volcano behind. The pool was great and perfect for lap swims as well. There was a wonderful afternoon tea that was very relaxing and delicious. The Rindik music played during dinner was authentic and relaxing. One of my favorite features of the Aman experience is the access. You can get in to the temple well before the public and watch the sun rise. We had a massage in the room that was perfect after a long bike ride through the rice fields nearby.
