Amanusa has been designed with a passionate eye, in order to maintain the ethos of Bali’s strong spiritual roots and physical beauty, encouraging guests to unwind in peace, in a soothing setting, with suites that have appointed the 21st century with acute subtlety.

Amanusa (which means “peaceful isle” and opened in 1992) enjoys a commanding position on a garden hillside in southern Bali just above the Bali Golf and Country Club. Views run from the adjacent Indian Ocean shoreline to sacred Mount Agung that dominates the far horizon on a clear day.

Only 15 minutes drive from Denpasar, Bali’s international airport, the process of relaxation begins swiftly, while the welcoming Amanusa staff take cares of the ‘seams of time’. Nearby, the bougainvillea-lined streets of Nusa Dua are dotted with boutiques and memorable restaurants and inspiriting cultural pursuits are only a bike, walk, or chauffeur-driven-minutes from the resort.

As an aid to total convalescence, resident masseuses are on hand, offering Balinese treatments within the comfort and privacy of the guests’ spacious suites.

A smooth manicured golf course, one of the most revered in Asia, separates the resort from the enticing ocean.

Amanusa has 35 thatched-roof suites linked by paved walkways and set behind foliage and mossy paras stone walls for added privacy.

During the day it is open for breakfast and lunch, serving a variety of Asian and Continental dishes, while in the evenings it offers a range of Indonesian and Thai dishes. Just below, the Restaurant specialises in Mediterranean cuisine, which is served in an elegant room with high ceilings or in the outdoor courtyard surrounded by flowering frangipani trees which overlook the pool.
