Amandari

    Amandari appears to be an authentic teak-and-stone artist’s village, set among the terraced rice fields on the edge of the Ayung River gorge near Ubud, Bali. River-stone walkways weave past shrines, gardens, and thatch-roof suites and lead down to a sacred pool in the valley. Guests can hike to the site, which also includes shrines and a stone carving of a tiger. Accommodations Most of the 30 suites are either one story with a king bed or two stories with a queen bed upstairs and two large lounging beds downstairs. Several units include pools that appear to spill into the gorge. Recreation Cooking classes in villagers’ homes, excursions to Balinese dance performances, and trips to nearby artists’ villages and Hindu temples. Dining At sunset, gamelan musicians perform poolside as guests enjoy Balinese feasts of suckling pig, smoked duck, giant prawns, beef, and vegetables in the nearby restaurant. Worthy Diversion Visit jewelry designer John Hardy’s Kapal Bambu (ship of bamboo) showroom. Rates From $700 for a Village Suite to $1,100 for a Pool Suite; $1,700 to $2,800 for special suites. The resort’s three-bedroom villa is available for $3,600.
