Situated on a lush hillside beneath sacred Mount Agung and claiming a breath-taking hilltop in the historic Karangasem Regency, Amankila showcases the very best of East Bali’s nature. In celebration of Global Wellness Day on 12 June 2022, Amankila has collaborated with breathwork Guru Hendri Take to curate a one-of- a-kind wellness experience that allows guests to engage and connect to the stillness within. Through this experience, guests are able to feel a close connection to nature, the fresh air and water of East Bali and savour the healthy cuisine specially prepared by Amankila.
Celebration of Mindful Living
Upon arrival at the resort, guests are invited to experience wellness through a gastronomic activity at the Harvest Table where healthy homecooked lunch is prepared by resident chefs who will also share local insights of the slow cooking process. Guests may sip healthy ginger tea in the afternoon and delight in a selection of traditional sweet treats before participating in a Laughing Yoga session with Amankila’s resident yoga instructor, Pak Eka, who will lead the one-hour class at the coconut grove next to the beach, accompanied by the sound of crashing waves.
Afterwards, guests can participate in another special yoga session by the beach overlooking the stunning ocean with Hendri Take, which will be livestreamed on the Instagram accounts of both Hendri Take and Amankila. As the sun sets, participants may head to the Beach Club for a seafood barbecue dinner prepared by a personal chef, or experience a communal-style dinner with their feet in the sand, having meaningful conversation together with other participants. As the bonfire lights up the night sky, guests can retire to the volcanic sand for a night cap and a captivating stargazing session.
Guest will be invited to rise early on the second day for Sunrise Breathwork with Hendri Take and soak up the morning sun rays, watching the dramatic and colourful transformation of the Balinese sky as the sun goes up over the Amuk Bay whilst sipping freshly squeezed juice and savouring homemade pastries. Amankila’s Tamansari balé is set high on the hills, a perfect place to start the day.
With two-days to experience this inspiring location, guests are invited to truly immerse themselves in Amankila’s majestic natural settings. Connected by frangipani-lined walkways through the treetops, stilted suites offer spectacular views high on the hillside, while a three-tier infinity pool cascades at the property’s heart and the beach club leads to a private black-sand beach.
