Value
Presided over by a sacred stone tiger, Amandari was designed after a traditional Balinese village on the verdant lip of the Ayung River Gorge, and is the first Bali-style luxury resort on the island. 31 guest suites and villa are reached via winding pathways, while the curving swimming pool mimics the rice paddies below. Close to the artistic centre of Ubud, this place of peace invites both reflection and the exploration of Bali's cultural heart, as well as its mountainous region to the north.

We learned that Amandari turns 35 this year. It does not show. Everything is in impeccable condition. What a super smart choice Aman made when it decided to build this Balinese village-like retreat at the top of the Ayung river canyon. Other luxury brand resorts have opened in the vicinity, but their locations just cannot match the beauty of that particular spot. Guests enjoy a fantastic view across the canyon, for example from the beautiful and large infinity pool or the open air restaurant above. The suites are in fact houses offering generous open spaces, double amenities, outside bathtubs, separate (partly upstairs) bedrooms and terraces. Housekeeping is miraculous; whenever you return to the house, everything has been refreshed, a “signature” Aman feature. Daily breakfast was included in our rate (I believe it is always so). We opted all the time for the most delicious Indonesian specialties plus some healthy yogurt and granola kind of delights, also with a local touch. If you prefer Western style breakfast, many choices are available, too. We dined out once (which was nice), but preferred to stay “at home” all other evenings and indulge in the restaurant’s offerings of local delicacies including a suckling pig barbecue and a Nusantara style dinner. Every afternoon, complimentary tea and sweet and savoury Indonesian snacks are served in the open air bar area. The service staff are extremely attentive, friendly and helpful, responding to every wish you may have. The same is true for tour arrangements (we loved the water temple, but recommend to select the rice terraces well - the ones we visited had been turned into an adventure park; Amandari’s own paddies are small, but very beautiful) and the shuttle services to Ubud town and back. Make sure not to miss the SPA treatments. We had one described as deploying local flavours and techniques meant to help you relax and reinvigorate. It totally lived up to the description. Which leads me to a more general remark: Aman external communication is a lot about peace and the Aman family and so on. As far as we can tell from our Aman experiences in India, Thailand and Indonesia, it is real, also for Amandari. From the General Manager (Michel Bachmann) to any service staff, the drivers, the bar man (serving at Amandari for more than 30 years) or the pool attendants, everyone makes you feel welcome in a unique, very natural way. They make you wish to come back. But then, there are so many other places to explore, and life is short.

This property is a “true” Aman. I don’t think I need to say more. I will definitely stay here the next time I come to Bali. I believe the negative comments/reviews are from people who have no idea what Aman is supposed to be and thus, they were expecting glitz. Aman is quiet luxury, some people just don’t understand. You have to come to appreciate. The photos really don’t do justice.

A charming hotel in the center of Bali. We stayed there with 2 kids and really felt in a special place. The design of the rooms is perfect, with an authentic style. You can see in a second that you are not in any other random resort. You can tell that people care in this place. They care about peace, style, food, everything... The management was very thoughtful.

Beautiful resort designed by Peter Muller. It feels like what a quiet luxury, community-led, special in-the-details experience should be. It brings you back in time to 1990s Bali tourism. We had a wonderful pool suite and enjoyed most of time relaxing.

While I’m sure the rooms are great, the restaurant left quite a bit to be desired. The night wasn’t off to a very strong start when we came to the restaurant and found out the table we had reserved for a birthday dinner had been given away to another family. Although accidents happen, besides small things like not taking away menu’s after ordering, forgetting to check if everyone has the necessary cutlery, this unfortunately wouldn’t be the only instance during the evening. Though the taste of the food was good, our chicken soup took 1.5 hours to be prepared, only to show up luke warm. Our soup was followed by the Indonesian Rice Table, which came after another 45 minutes of waiting. While trying to put the platter down, the waiter accidentally dropped all of the food on the floor. Though the second round of rice tables luckily came faster, by this point we’d already been waiting at least 2 hours without any sort of main. All accidents aside, the food did taste very nice, however, nothing spectacular. Despite the food tasting very nice and the staff trying their best and being very nice and accommodating, for a restaurant that claims itself to offer a “luxury Indonesian fine dining experience” and is part of a hotel that charges over $1,000 a night, the service did not live up to expectations.

Amandari was lovely. Total on brand Aman. Low density, high-service experience. Loved the way it made me think of Bali. We checked out early from total loser Mandapa next door to come to Amandari. Amandari is higher perched on the mountain than the awful Mandapa next door. You get a sophisticated experience unlike the common white river rafting vibe of Mandapa. The room is spectacular. I remember the beautifully printed walls. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced as fine of wall coverings. The pool is perfect for the energy of the place. I loved the pool area. The staff would cover up chairs for when it would drizzle. There is a small covered area on the outer side of the pool. In a particularly strong downpour I took cover underneath it. That moment helped shape my vision of Bali. I don’t know that I will ever forget it. If you are seriously considering a high end hotel in this area of Bali, stay at the Amandari. It’s great. Also, my other piece of advice is do not stay at Mandapa under really any circumstances. I tried both of them and the Aman makes me feel like I understand understated luxury and Mandapa makes me feel sad, like I’ve been some bad food.

Lisburn, United Kingdom50 contributions57 helpful votes
Amandari is set out in the style of a village and it was very peaceful just strolling in the grounds. Our room was a Pool Suite (15) and we had a beautiful view over the valley from our pool. The living area of the room was very bright and spacious, we loved it. The bedroom was upstairs and whilst very simple in design was comfortable. The room was immaculately clean and had been refreshed every time we came back to it. The staff everywhere were very polite and friendly. When we were there the hotel appeared very quiet but this could be a result of guests staying in their lovely suites as we did! We enjoyed massages at the spa and wished we had booked more. Why only four stars? We felt that a few areas seemed tired and in need of upgrading or repairs. Amandari is expensive and we were surprised that the large sliding doors in our suite were rickety and hard to open and close easily. I sometimes felt that they could fall off. The bathrooms were tired and the bar area was really dated. Some of this may seem picky but at the price we would have expected better. The sliding doors were very poor. I think we had really high expectations of Amandari and whilst we enjoyed our stay it didn’t quite live up those expectations.

I visited their bar for afternoon tea, unfortunately their beverages choice is not what I expected to be. However since they offered to move to their restaurant for more selection of menu and better view. And I am no regreting at all spend my evening here, the foods is spectacular especially the quinoa salad, and I don't even know why even their welcome bread is amazing. I personally wouldn't couldn't shouldn't talked about the scenery, come see for youself.
