Sitting pretty on the crest of a hill, Amanusa – meaning ‘peaceful isle’ – is an exclusive retreat amid the bustle of Southern Bali. There are just 37 luxurious thatched suites set within tropical gardens, each hidden behind bougainvillea-shaded stone walls.

Each luxurious suite is classic in style, with a teak four poster bed draped in white veils, and a soothing colour palette of honey and cream. Sunken bathtubs, dining tables and private courtyards, some with private swimming pools, ensure plenty of living and relaxation space for discerning guests. Suites also boast modern tech touches, but these are cleverly concealed so as not to disturb the soothing ambiance of each abode.

The Italian restaurant overlooks the main swimming pool, whilst for more informal dining, the open air Terrace pavilion offers a menu of Thai and Indonesian cuisine each evening. Breakfast is also served at the Terrace, and if you ask us, it's well worth a crack of dawn start to watch the sunrise over the ocean as you devour your eggs benedict. Twenty four hour room service is also available.

The star of the Amanusa is certainly the beach club, accessed by a short buggy ride downhill. The chalky white sand beach is home to a handful of loungers shaded by parasols, or claim one of the beautiful shaded balés and order cool drinks and light bites to your daybed. A team of beach valets ensure every beachside whim is catered to.

Spa treatments, using organic local products, are a must for utter relaxation, or retreat to the library for some midday shade. Guests can swim in the main pool, the sheltered lagoon like ocean at the beach club, or in private pavilion pools, whilst watersports are on offer for the more active guests at the beach club.

An abundance of lively restaurants and bars are found in the nearby beach towns of Jimbaran, Seminyak and Sanur, and for those after a little afternoon Tee time, the Bali Golf and Country Club is just next door. For the real golf aficionados, fairway view pavilions are an option too.

Why we love it

Holly in the mountains

The area of Nusa Dua is very much the domain of the all-inclusive, however from its hilltop hideaway, the Amanusa offers character, Balinese charm, tranquillity and faultless service amid the giants, whilst making the most of the peninsula's stunning beaches.
