Experiences at Amandari

Bali is blessed with natural beauty, a balmy climate and rich traditions upheld by its deeply spiritual people. Volcanoes skirted by terraced rice paddies drop to a breathtaking coastline, and villages and temples dot the landscape. Amandari arranges bespoke experiences and tailor-made adventures anywhere on the island.

Village artisans 

Ubud is Bali’s artistic heart, full of galleries and home to many artists, while the villages nearby have been known for centuries for the work of their artisans. Visit the tucked away village ateliers of silversmiths, wood carvers and Balinese painters, or take a lesson with an artist living nearby. 

Spend a peaceful morning or afternoon with a local Balinese artist with a private painting session at Amandari. Create anything from a simple local shrine to a colourful natural scene of Amandari’s surroundings. 

Island of the Gods 

Sacred springs, shrines and statues dot the wilderness of the Ayung River Valley, and regular festivals give the decorated villages a carnival-like atmosphere. Amandari can arrange private excursions to ancient temples, personalised blessings and walks that reveal the spiritual aspect of Balinese culture. 

From the morning market 

Combine a country walk with a visit to one of the island’s indispensable institutions. An Amandari driver will take you to Blahkiuh Market, about 20 minutes from Amandari, where you are free to soak up the sights, the colours and the fresh morning air. Then, with your guide, it is on into the countryside, through rice fields and villages and back to the resort.
