    Location 4.63 /10

    The hotel is situated at 2 miles far away from the center of Candidasa. Denpasar airport is 46 miles far away, which takes around 2 hours of driving.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    There are 3 type of rooms: Superior (standard), Deluxe and Deluxe Ocean. Deluxe Ocean rooms offer to the customers the pleasure to have a magnificent view of the ocean. The decoration provides the sobriety and space to the rooms. The large and long rooms are painted with pastel tons: pale green walls and floor with beige paving, embellished with nice inlaid furnishings laminated by coconut trees. The bathroom is as large as the room. Due to an outside sundeck looking at the sea , the room gaigns more space. The equipment and services will confront the customers even the more demanding ones with a 24 hour room service (but there is no TV).

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Perched on the top of a sea cliff and situated in the heart of a tree planted park, Amankila is differentiated by its isolation and its magnificent environment. It is dominating abay in the south part of Candidasa and offers a marvellous panorama. Constructed in 1992, the establishment offers upscale services. It is situated around one main building including the common parts: reception, restaurant, upscale shops and a nice library. 35 villas layed around on different levels could be reached by stone bridges. Near to the sea cliff, the land with gentle slope comes out of one magnificent swimming pool with steps. Bordered by sundecks equipped with beach decks and umbrellas, it is dominated by the main restaurant. The architecture of the buildings display a modest, uncluttered style. Two faults need to be corrected: the entrance to the beach is complicated and land sports equipment are lacking.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The main restaurant offers a magnificent view of the swimming pool with steps and of the sea in the backside. Dinners especially will be served there; lunchs are served on the sundecks next to the main swimming pool or at the "beach" restaurant, near to the second swimming pool. The food is of quality, with mainly European and Indonesian specialties. One plate's charge is around 150,000 rupiahs. A large selection of wine will offer you around fifty zones from several countries.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Situated down against the hotel, Amankila beach also emphasizes the hotel's perfect stance. It occupies a small bay, reachable by a long and abrupt stairway or by a road constructed especially to that purpose (the only thing you should do is to ask for the transportation). The beach with good size (around 490 feet/ 26 feet) is divided by a large grass land hedged with high plants. You can find beach decks, umbrellas and several non motorized water sports on one side. And on the other side, you can swim in a nice large and long swimming pool bordered by a restaurant and shower stalls. The ambience is relaxing. The only fault of the beach: a volcanic sand is dark-colored. The sea is transparent.

    To know

    The hotel is planning a construction of a spa and a tennis court for the season of 2002. It is reachable by helicopter, directly from the airport (a bit expensive). The configuration of the land is not adapted to the ones suffering from travelling. The hotel offers rafting and trekking way outs and cruises as well.

      A hotel that stands practically in the water in the resort of Candi Dasa, in the east of Bali, and far from the busy, over-populated districts of Kuta and Seminyak. Offering high-quality facilities without being extravagant, this trendy hotel promotes a tranquil atmosphere on its very pleasant, wooded site that caters exclusively to couples. It's a shame, though, that there's no sandy beach here, meaning guests have to make do with a strip of pebbles.

      A pocket-sized hotel in Candi Dasa! This establishment (which we wouldn't call a resort as such), once entirely devoted to diving, recently changed tack and now provides a setting created exclusively with couples in mind. On the whole, the facilities are very modest: the accommodation is decent and while there is direct access to the sea from the hotel, it's a shame there is no beach.
