The resort has recently added a private,
three-bedroom villa to its accommodations. Located alongside
the Ayung River gorge, adjacent to the resort, the 1,500-square-meter
site overlooks fields of rice and the distant peaks of Batukau,
Sanglyang and Lesong. The Balinese-style villa compound includes
five pavilions: three detached, terrace-style bedrooms; a
separate living room walled entirely in windows and sliding-glass
doors; and a fully fitted kitchen complete with staff quarters.
The villa is crafted largely of coconut wood and teak. Interior
design and furnishings are in classic style. An outdoor dining
bale is set alongside a reflection pond. A garden and a landscaped
deck embrace the two-tiered swimming pool.
The Villa is no more than a minuteís drive from the resort
proper. A vehicle is always on call, should villa guests wish
to take advantage of any of Amandariís facilities. The villa
comes with two staff; a chef is on call.
