Amanusa sits on a garden hillside in southern Bali. Just beyond, the Bali National Golf Resort (currently closed for renovations) stretches towards the Indian Ocean, while close by are the bougainvillea-shaded streets of Nusa Dua, lined with roadside shops and resorts. The international airport in Denpasar, the island’s capital, is a 20-minute drive from the resort.
Renowned for its dining, nightlife, shopping and entertainment, the coastline of southern Bali offers myriad opportunities for exploration. From the chic towns of Sanur and Seminyak to the beaches of Nusa Dua and Kuta, guests can experience the vibrancy of “new” Bali from a tranquil base at Amanusa.
Bustling streets are lined with shops selling colourful textiles, wood carvings, jewellery, stone sculptures and paintings, reflecting the artistic traditions of the island. Roadside stalls offer traditional Indonesian fare such as spicy fried rice and fish or chicken satay. Along the white sand beaches, fishing boats, dramatic sunsets and arching palm trees provide endless photo opportunities and the overall atmosphere is one of welcome. This region, with Amanusa at its heart, offers an exciting opportunity to glimpse how the contemporary and the classic are intertwined on this legendary island.
