Amankila, which means "peaceful hill" in Sanskrit, is built along the contours of an escarpment between two headlands in eastern Bali. Located near the villages of Candi Dasa and Padang Bai, the resort provides a beach getaway in surroundings of privacy and quiet elegance. From here, guests have an opportunity to explore the rich Balinese history prevalent in this area of East Bali as well as enjoying swimming, cruising and snorkeling. 
The resorts main building consists of three levels: on the uppermost level is the arrival court and Lobby; one level below is the Bar and Restaurant. The Library, Gallery, Shop and Terrace restaurant are all on the third level. All public areas command spectacular ocean views across the Lombok and Badung Straits. The main swimming pool is terraced through three levels decreasing in size while appearing to descend into the ocean. Steps from the central area descend to The Beach Club, set within a coconut grove on the beach. The Club has an informal restaurant, a 45 meter swimming pool and water sport equipment.
