Amandari, perched on sacred ground in the Ayung River gorge, looks over cascading rice paddies and Hindu shrines

Bali Adventure Experiences

A stone tiger – left by a seventh-century Hindu priest as a reminder of the village’s blessing – sits beside two shrines 129 steps below Amandari. Deeply connected to the surrounding community and landscape, the 5-star resort offers an array of adventure experiences that range from exploring the arts in nearby Ubud to trekking through the surrounding rice terraces and tropical jungle


The villages around Ubud have been known for centuries as one of Bali’s artistic centres

Visit the ateliers of local artisans and take an art lesson from a Balinese painter in Ubud or an international artist living nearby


Sacred springs, shrines and statues dot the wilderness of the Ayung Valley

Trek along a natural ridge winding alongside the river with banyan trees framing views across the gorge, or plunge through unspoilt nature on a whitewater raft, past waterfalls and steep rock walls


The tiered rice fields of central Bali, interlaced with paths, are ideal for exploring on foot or bicycle

Venture from village to village, or stop in nearby Ceking, where majestic slopes can be traversed atop an elephant


History can be seen at the region’s many temples, dating from as early as the eighth century

A number of temples are within a short drive of Amandari, including one of Bali’s longest pavilions at Pura Agung Gunung Raung, and the inspired woodcarvings of Gunung Kawi


The Taman Burung Bali Bird Park is home to more than 250 tropical species

The park is home to a huge variety of plants – as well as Komodo dragons – and can be the endpoint of a light hike from Amandari


Celebratory rites and festivals occur throughout the Balinese calendar

The fêtes are occasions for the community to come together and often involve live music and Balinese dance
