Enjoy luxury Bali, Indonesia travel to Amandari (peaceful spirits) which is located in the village of Kedewatan, on the fringe of Bali,™s cultural capital, Ubud. Perched on an escarpment high above the winding Ayung River gorge, this luxury balinese village resort follows the design of a traditional Balinese village. Pebbled walkways link the thatched-roof suites, each of which has its own walled garden. Amandari provides a unique setting from which to experience the cultural richness of Bali’s artistic center as well as its mountainous region to the north.
Designed as a Balinese village, the property will provide you with a bali luxury accommodation to remember that features andesite walkways and high paras-stone walls to mimic traditional local design. The pathway that runs through Amandari and down the valley to the river below is said to be sacred land. Every six months for hundreds of years, Balinese from the village of Kedewatan, where Amandari is located, have taken the path through the resort grounds down to a pool of holy water. Just above this spring-fed pool sit three modest shrines and a 7th-century tiger carved in stone.

Balinese-style stone gateways front Amandari’s 30 walled, freestanding thatched-roof suites.

Luxury accommodations are divided into Village, Valley and Pool Suite categories. Some enjoy views of the Ayung River Gorge and surrounding paddy fields. Pool Suites feature private plunge pools.
