Discover Indonesia with Amanresorts
Probably the first truly luxurious resorts in the region, and still the most innovative, with a subtle quality that allows the essence of the destination to shine through. Elegantly simple, totally stylish.

Amandari provides a unique and totally luxurious setting from which to experience the cultural richness of Bali’s artistic centre, as well as being a great base for exploring the mountainous region to the north.

Moyo Island with cruise option
Aman means peace, wana forest, so if you are looking for a peaceful resort in the forest, Ananwana is highly suggested. Located on the nature reserve Island of Moyo, travelling here is an experience. You take the short 45 minute flight from Bali east to Sumbawa, and then a 30 minute speedboat ride to the resort.
Amanwana is a wilderness hideaway, with the accommodation provided in 20 tents. But forget any idea about roughing it, these are spacious, beautifully conceived, fully air conditioned with en suite bathrooms. Within the resort you have restaurant, bar, Jungle cove spa, dive centre, dipping rather swimming pool, plus this is one of the best areas for diving so the resort has its own dive centre. Jungle treks are a feature and can be easily arranged.
Providing you are completely comfortable with the realities of nature, a stay at Amanwana can be a unique experience.
A new feature of the Amanwana has been the introduction of Amanikan, a 32 foot coastal cruiser offering you the adventure of a lifetime exploring the pristine wilderness and waters of Indonesia’s Komodo national park where you have the opportunity the see the incredible Dragon lizards in the natural habitat and the totally untouched Banda islands where very few tourists have ventured. The Amanikan features three above deck cabins of varying sizes and an outdoor dining and bar area. All are air conditioned, with separate toilets.
Although the exterior of AmanIkan is totally authentic, the furnishings are custom made of teak, rattan and other locally sourced materials. Guests can relax in the privacy of their cabins or in the main lounge, built into the bow of the cruiser. The experienced seafaring staff aboard cater to your every need. In addition to the private cruise option, there will be several fixed date departures throughout the year, ask us for details.

Amanjiwo means peaceful soul, an apt description for what must be one of the most original and stunningly located hotels in the world. Located overlooking Borobudur, the world’s largest Buddhist sanctuary. Originally built in 800 AD, the sanctuary was then abandoned as the Buddhist faith moved from Java into Bali, was then symbolically covered in volcanic ash from the erupting volcano and lay undiscovered until the mid-1840’s when a certain Sir Stamford Raffles set out to find it. It was completely renovated by the Indonesian Government in 1975, and now is one of the most visited and incredible sights in the region.
The accommodation consists of 34 suites superbly appointed suites, 15 of which have their own plunge pool. Resort facilities include swimming pool, restaurant and bar, spa. A selection of eco adventure tours including elephant trekking.
You fly from Bali to Yogyakarta, 50 minutes, and the resort is then just a short 30 minute road transfer.
