Experience

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

Adventures

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 resort offers an array of 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 workshops of artists and artisans in the area, or take an art lesson from a Balinese painter in Ubud or an international artist living nearby

 

THE WILDERNESS OF THE AYUNG VALLEY IS DOTTED WITH RICE TERRACES, SWEET POTATO PLOTS AND SACRED SPRINGS, SHRINES AND STATUES THAT HAVE BEEN TENDED FOR CENTURIES

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

 

THE TERRACED RICE FIELDS OF CENTRAL BALI ARE INTERLACED WITH PATHS that are IDEAL FOR HIKING OR BICYCLING

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

 

THE HISTORY OF THE ISLAND CAN BE SEEN AT THE MANY TEMPLES SPREAD ACROSS THE REGION, DATING FROM AS EARLY AS THE 8TH CENTURY

A number of temples are set 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

 

HOME TO MORE THAN 250 SPECIES OF TROPICAL BIRD, THE TAMAN BURUNG BALI BIRD PARK IS FULL OF VIBRANT PLUMAGE

The lush park, home to a variety of plants as well as Komodo dragons, can be the endpoint of a moderate hike from Amandari or a destination in itself

 

CELEBRATORY RITES AND FESTIVALS TAKE PLACE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, ACCORDING TO THE BALINESE CALENDAR

Occasions for the community to come together, the fetes often involve live music and Balinese dance performances
