ASIA. BALI, INDONESIA.
Balinese myth has it that Mount Agung, an active volcano on the island’s eastern coast, is home to the gods. Built in the shadow of the mountain, guests at Amankila share much the same views over the Lombok Strait as the divinities themselves. 34 exclusive suites and a private beach are the most notable markings of this hideaway, but the most endearing are the Balinese touches, from indigenous ingredients at the spa, to Indonesian cooking classes and downtime in a traditional balé pavilion by the sea.
