My wife and I stayed at Amankila in June of 2012 as part of our honeymoon. We spent 2 weeks in Bali spread across 3 different hotels in different part of the island. Amankila was outstanding, but very remote. Thus, my only "caution" is that it probably isn't the best fit for very active people that value activities over simple relaxation. I generally fall into that category, but never felt any restlessness during our 5 day stay. From an architectural perspective, Amankilla is perhaps the most unique and beautiful resorts I have ever visited. The view from the pool is spectacular, as it was from our villa - and I would be shocked if there was a single villa without a similarly beatiful view.
We mostly spent our time at the beach and pool, but did venture out on several occassions. My wife absolutely loved the tour of the local market, and we also had a blast on our bike ride one day - which really enabled us to get a feel for the surrounding area.
The food was excellent. The fruit was without doubt the best I have ever had - to the point where I overindulged the first few days. Given the remoteness, we ate every single meal at the hotel - but that wasn't an issue on account of its quality.
Overall I would highly recommend Amankilla. It was as outstanding as its prices would suggest.More
