Beach Club

Test your balance on our slackline tethered in the coconut grove, try your hand at beach golf, or relax by the pool. A range of activities are available directly from Amankila’s Beach Club.


Located in the unspoilt Eastern region of Bali, there are many opportunities for exploration by bike. One of the most popular routes, Budakeling to Ujung, begins in the shadow of Mount Agung and takes guests past Tirta Gangga Water Palace, along quiet village roads and emerald-green rice terraces.


Pass through the villages of old Bali and stumble across traditional Balinese festivals, or climb to the top of Mount Batur to watch the sunrise over Mount Agung and Mount Abang. A multitude of trekking options are available from Amankila.

Eastern Gem exhibition

Showcasing the works of photographer Dewandra Djelantik, Bali's Eastern Gem exhibition takes place at Amankila's Library until 31 July. An internationally renowned artist, Dewandra is the first son of the first grandson of I Gusti Bagus Djelantik, the last King of Karangasem who reigned in 1909-1945. Focussing on Taman Soekasada Ujung, also known as Ujung Water Palace - an architectural masterpiece by I Gusti Bagus Djelantik - the exhibition highlights the beauty of the historic palace. A fusion of Chinese, Dutch and traditional Balinese architecture, Taman Soekasada Ujung also served as the design inspiration for nearby Amankila.

Adventures on Water

As rich and colourful as East Bali is above the waves, its offshore realm is perhaps even more spectacular. With pristine reefs ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving, the coastline also offers superb surfing, fishing and cruising opportunities.
