Celebrations & events at Amankila

Host the perfect event

Set in East Bali, where water palaces speak of the region’s royal past and temples honour the island’s gods, Amankila’s dramatic setting makes it one of the most captivating destinations in Asia. But it is not just its beauty that makes this serene retreat such a special place for private celebrations. 

Meaningful aspects of Balinese traditions and culture imbue every occasion with a real sense of place and the almost tangible tranquillity so unique to the Island of the Gods. Purifying Mandi Lulur bathing rituals can be incorporated into wedding preparations, while event spaces are blessed with the presence of Penjor (bamboo flags) that symbolise Mount Agung. Traditional music sets the scene at parties and receptions, and ancient dances – whether the romantic Oleg Tambulilingan or the refined Legong – entertain and delight.

Amankila Resort

Weddings  

Spectacular settings to celebrate the once-in-a-lifetime union abound on the resort’s dramatic clifftop and beachside location with panoramic views over the Lombok Strait. High above the jungle-edged coastline beside the resort’s iconic three-tiered pool, say ‘I do’ with the sacred mountains as the only witness. Alternatively, exchange vows on the black sand beach, before walking an aisle strewn with flowers by local Balinese children to the reception in a coconut grove. The pool full of floating candles, with tuberoses and frangipani scenting the air welcomes guests with an unforgettable vision, while the sound of a traditional gamelan orchestra starts an evening of celebrations.

Whether an intimate party or a festive gathering, Amankila’s expert team can tailor exceptional private dining and adventure experiences for the most memorable of stays.
