Resort Nusa Dua - From its hilltop location in southern Bali,
Amanusa (peaceful isle) is blessed with tropical island views. The
Bali Golf and Country club unfolds immediately below Amanusa. From
the rolling green hills, the view runs north to the sea and beyond
to volcanic Mount Agung. On a clear morning, the horizon is full
with Baliís mountains. To the northeast, the island of Nusa Penida
is visible. In the east, just a few hundred meters away, the sea
is cut with a barrier reef made for surfing.
Despite its exclusive setting, Amanusa may be Aman resorts most
central hideaway. Baliís international airport and the beach world
of Kuta are both about 20 minutes from Amanusa; Denpasar, the island
capital, is 30 minutes from the resort.
Amanusaís 35, thatched-roof suites are set behind paras-stone walls.
Each suite is divided into a large living area and a spacious bathroom.
The living area includes a four-poster bed, a table for private
dining and a TV and stereo system. Thereís also a terrace with an
oversized day bed under a canopy; each suite also features a garden
forecourt. Amanusaís light-filled bathroom comes with a marble-tiled
tub all but enclosed in a glass wall recessed into a reflection
pond. At one end of the bathroom, windows overlook the Bali Golf
and Country Club. At the other, sliding wood doors lead to an outside
shower built into a high stone wall.
Eight suites have private swimming pools. Deluxe suites come with
views of the sea or the golf course. The Amanusa Suite has a private
swimming pool and a particularly favorable location.
The Terrace restaurant, with its sweeping views to the golf course,
the Indian Ocean and the mountains, offers Indonesian and Thai cuisine.
The Restaurant specializes in Italian cuisine; seating is also available
in an outdoor courtyard by the swimming pool. The open-air bar offers
dramatic views to the southern peninsula, the sea and the mountains
on the horizon.
The Gallery and Gift Shop keeps a select range of Balinese and Indonesian
craft and antiques. The adjacent library, a cool retreat for browsing,
specializes in books on Indonesian culture and art.
Amanusaís lavish, 30x22-meter swimming pool is bordered by unglazed
batik pots, a trellis of flowing bougainvillea and a two-storey,
paras-stone wall. Amanusaís two, all-weather tennis courts are floodlit
for evening play. Massage is available in the privacy of your suite,
either indoors or out on the balcony. You can also enjoy a massage
poolside or from one of the shaded Beach Club bales . Body treatments,
as well as facials, pedicures and manicures, can also be arranged.
Amanusaís Beach Club is just a beach-buggy ride
away from the resort. The Beach Clubís nine bales are fitted with
mattresses and roll cushions and face a coral reef about 150 meters
out. Snorkeling equipment is available. Light meals and refreshments
are served at the dining bale. The Beach Club is also the setting
for regular candlelight barbecues, with four tables set down on
the sand by the sea.
The Amanusa boardroom can accommodate up to 30 people for business
meetings, weddings, birthday parties, family reunions and other
private functions. Beyond the boardroom, Amanusa can make just about
any aspect of the resort available for business groups. Along with
the resortís two restaurants and bar, alternative dining and cocktail
venues can easily be organized. On a day free of business, picnic
hampers and day trips can be arranged to cater for up to 15 people.
Small business groups can also hold their own corporate tennis or
golf challenge. Amanusa Resort Bali will be pleased to arrange a
company or group tournament at the Bali Golf and Country Club.
