BAWAH PRIVATE ISLAND
Nature and wellness go hand in hand for us. We inspire our guests to ‘disconnect to reconnect’, to bring back the inner child in all of us, when curiosity was the theme of the day and sharing moments with our loved ones was the most important thing in life.
To truly explore nature, we inspire our guests to just let go and let nature take its course. In doing so, they will rediscover their authentic self and reconnect with the beauty and wellness of nature.
A stay at Bawah stays for a lifetime. Every single one of our guest will take away something that will stay with them forever and leave the island with a renewed sense of purpose.

o Discover Amankila (https://www.aman.com/resorts/amankila), a 5-star luxury resort occupying a breath-taking hilltop spot on Bali’s east coast.
Amankila means ‘peaceful hill’, but the name is a little modest given its setting, with ancient, spiritual and regal neighbours here in the historic Karangasem Regency. Balinese culture dictates design details throughout: recurring motifs reference the ruins of the nearby water palace at Ujung; a three-tier infinity pool spills down the hillside like a cascading rice paddy. Thatched-roof Suites are set on stilts, just visible above the treetops, and are decorated with paras stone and furniture inlaid with pearl and coconut shell. A series of frangipani-lined walkways connects the property’s buildings, conceived by architect Ed Tuttle. Best Hotels in Indonesia

AMANJIWO, BOROBODUR, JAVA
Silhouetted at sunrise, Unesco-listed Borobudur is sure to stir up artistic tendencies – not only because the landscape includes Mount Merapi’s volcanic peak, smouldering in the background, but because Amanjiwo provides guests with sets of watercolour paints. Here in Indonesia’s artistic and intellectual heartland, Borobudur, one of Buddhism’s most sacred Mahayana temples, was reclaimed from the jungle in the 19th century, and its significance is echoed in the resort’s design. The temple-like hideaway, built entirely from blush-beige local paras Jogja limestone, has soaring ceilings, colonnades and a central domed stupa roof that mimics Borobudur in the distance.
