Inspired by the rose-hued buildings of old Marrakech, palatial Amanjena is close to the fabled Red City. Spend time relaxing by private pools, visiting the otherworldly landscape of the Agafay dunes or rejuvenating inside Amanjena’s serene spa.
Amankila’s elegant, open-sided Restaurant is located above the main pool with breathtaking views of the ocean. Open for dinner, its menu features both Indonesian and Western dishes, with free-range duck reared on the resort’s farm in Jasri a specialty, and fresh ingredients picked daily from the resort’s organic garden. Begin your evening with a drink in the Bar alongside the Restaurant, a lofty-ceilinged space with the same awe-inspiring views.
Featuring a vast range of herbs, fruit and vegetables, Amankila’s organic garden provides the resort’s kitchens with everything from sweet potatoes, tomatoes and spinach, to chillies and passion fruit. Quails are bred to provide the restaurant with their dainty eggs, and a coffee plantation will eventually provide the resort’s own beans.
Locally reared and caught
The connection between Amankila’s cuisine and its origins is ever present as you dine on whole salt-baked market fish overlooking the ocean or Balinese home-smoked roast duck with the fertile slopes of Mount Agung at your back.
Amankila’s sustainable bar philosophy has resulted in cocktail syrups made from the island’s native flowers, fruits and spices, a delicious homemade ginger beer, and energising home-brewed tepache – a naturally fermented pineapple beverage.
