The next morning while waiting for our taxi to Lembar to board the ferry, Herman and Guru came over to say goodbye and wait with us. A couple really good guys.

Historical Traveler Reviews Amankila Manggis
Having been to Bali on four occasions, and tried the other Aman and Four Seasons resorts on the island, I believe the Amankila is the best beach resort on the island. I enjoyed the resort so much that I am holding my wedding here
I just returned from Bali where i stayed for the first time in the Amanila Hotel. My stay was absolutely perfect in any way. From the check in where the Management greets your personally to the check out where you receive a farewell gift, the hotel is perfectly managed. Despite the fact that this hotel is older than most other hotels in Bali (14 years) it is still in perfect shape and the staff (most of the work there for many years) is fabulous. For dinner the chef is always around to discuss menu and wine options. During the day you have multiple options of either relaxing at the pool or beach club or take part in several sightseeing options. Breakfast is excellent and lunch as well. I would definitely return and the only regret i have is that i did not stay longer than 2 nights
Nowhere as good as Amandari
Excellent setting but service is nowhere near as good as at Amandari. Staff seem to understand English less well and front office staff are not as welcoming or hospitable. This may well reflect the General Manager's attitude.
If you want to feel welcome, go to Amandari.
This hotel has the most beautiful views and common areas of any hotel we have ever visited (and we have visited top hotels on six continents). Unlike some hotels, where the promotional photos are carefully staged by photographers, I am uploading some of my photos so you can see how breathtaking it is!
Better than Paradise
We arrived at Denpasar airport where we were greated buy the Amankila car, this was the begining of our first Aman experiance.
We arrived at the Hotel where we were beatifully greeted by the Manager Tracy and some of her amazing team. The view from our suite was breathtaking. We experienced 5 fantastic nights of superb food & service, We have travelled very extensively all over the world and stayed in the very best hotels but Amankila has to be number one.
The New Years Eve celebrations had to be the most sophisticted any yet fun we have enjoyed
The staff treated us and all the other guests like royalty.
We will be back
Best hotel around the globe
How to describe the paradise?? It's not easy at all but be sure if you decide to choose Amankila, you'll be more than happy to stay in one of the very best hotel around the globe. From your amazing villa, often with a large private pool, you can enjoy of stunning views on the ocean. Inside, decoration is pure and incredibly relaxing with large spaces and a fantastic bathroom. Service is sincerely perfect and all your expectations will be satisfied.
And why not to swin in these terrace pools, the most beautiful of the world...
Amankila is like a dream but turn this dream into reality and go to Manggis and return often to this place which is so excellent.
My husband and I stayed at the Amankila in July and were very happy with the hotel. The service could not have been better. Upon arrival we were given a choice of upgraded rooms as the hotel was only about half booked and we were happy that we chose one closest to the beach as the sound of the waves was wonderful. The hotel provided free transportation to the local points of interest for us so there was no need to hire a taxi or car service. When I received an oversea's phone call and was not in my room to receive it, the office quickly found me in the dining room and brought a phone to me. The food at the restaurant was very good and we were surprised to find lovely items in the gift shop at reasonable prices. My husband and I are not "beach people" so we had not planned on going to the beach, but I agree with another writer that the beach is dirty and uninviting. Fortunately, however, the views from the hotel and pool and are wonderful as they sit well above the beach.
We finally spent three nights at Amankila: we have been thinking about it for more than 3 years...!!! The hotel really met all our expectations, the setting is beautiful, the rooms are huge with large bathroom and lots of privacy, but the Beach Club is not comparable with Amanusa. The beach is black (OK we knew it, in Italy we have black sand beaches, too), but this is constantly dirty, due to the presence of many oil tankers in the sea right in front of the hotel. Not one of the best panoramas...!!! But Amankila was excellent in every other parts (On our last night we could also see a dance show right on the beach, followed by a delicious BBQ): I know it is not their fault if a port has been built right next to the resort...!!! Go to Amankila: it is one of the most beautiful resort in the world but remember about the tankers...
What a wonderful resort! My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon last year. What a treat! The secluded location on a cliff was stunning as was the architecture. Our villa faced the huge blue ocean, one of the most spectacular views I have ever seen. Having said that, nearly everywhere you go in the resort will have this wonderful view. There are so many pretty spots in this resort, it's hard to decide whether to spend your time lounging in one of the bales by the three-tiered pool, get your feet wet along the black sand beach with sand like talcum powder, or do a few healthy laps at the long beach club pool. The service was the best we've ever had, all the staff knew our names and always addressed politely as either ibu or bapak. If you go, make sure to have breakfast in one of their mountain hideaway bales. A delicious and healthy breakfast picnic awaits you while you enjoy the beautiful Balinese sunrise!
The amankila has got to be one of the best hotels in the world. At least it is the best hotel i´ve stayed at, and believe me I know some top notch hotels worldwide. We stayed at amankila for 5 nights during our honeymoon in a private pool villa. It is definitely a must. The room is pretty big with his and hers closets, bath tub, shower, terrace with lounge chairs and a 25 X 10 ft pool with lots of privacy. Service doesn't get better than this. when you arrive, they ask you for your passport so they can make a copy and have all the staff know how you look like, so by the time you wake up, everybody knows you by name and are as cortieous as can be. The pools are amazing with great views and with huge cabanas to do some reading or napping. The food is very good although the menu is kind of limited. Even though ordered a lot outside the menu, and we got it. Activities are the best at amankila, we took a bike tour (for lazy guys like us) which is all downhill, that was great. The snorkeling tour is also lots of fun and the boat they take you in is very rustic but comfortable (the roof is all covered in white cushions like a lounge.).
