Amanusa is a luxury resort that overlooks the Indian Ocean and Nusa Dua. The retreat offers complete privacy and unparalleled comfort amongst a breathtaking setting. Just a 20-minute drive from Denpasar Airport, Amanusa is close by to the popular shopping and nightlife districts of Kuta, Sanur, Legian and Seminyak. The main highlights of this serene getaway are the panoramic views of the island, the 18-hole golf course and the gorgeous white sand beaches.

The enormous golf course separates the 35 detached villas from Nusa Dua’s blindingly white beach, and guests can spend their time enjoying a game of golf or lounging in a private gazebo on the beach overlooking the pristine waters. The resort boasts a huge pool enclosed by a high stone wall and colonnade overflowing with bougainvillea. At sunset, gamelan musicians will play lingering melodies to set the mood. An extensive range of beauty and massage therapies can be provided in the comfort of your own room or in the massage suite, such as body scrubs, facial treatments, herbal baths, manicures and pedicures. The resort also boasts two tennis courts, a library and an art gallery.

In terms of food and drink, the hotel also has its own fine dining establishment that offers Indonesian and Italian cuisine. With high ceilings and leaded windows, it provides a range of dishes during the day, and is open for dinner every evening until 10.30. If you prefer to stay in, 24-hour room service is available, and meals can be brought to your room, to the beach or by the pool. If you have kids, staff can organise free childcare for up to four hours, and from then on it’s only US$10 an hour.

If you’re looking for the kind of otherworldly luxury that we can usually only dream about, then you need not look any further. Amanusa’s impeccable service, delicious food and warm hospitality promises to leave you completely enchanted.
