Realise your own peace in paradise on Indonesia’s unspoilt, private island of Moyo, just east of Bali. With its 20 super-luxury tents, the Amanwana is Moyo’s only resort, sitting directly on the shores of this tiny island escape, there guaranteeing you exclusive tranquillity. A chic, pristine take on traditional south-east Asian design with its rich, dark wood throughout and impressive tent-roofing, the Amanwana makes being one with nature more than comfortable. The beautiful resort, with its exotic, timber bar and touches of Indonesian authenticity is sprinkled with lovely, mood lighting, creating a setting that oozes romance and relaxation.
Arrive from either Singapore or Hong Kong into Bali’s International Airport and board a 45-minute seaplane over Lombok’s mighty volcano toward the secluded Amanwana resort in the West Sumbawa regency. A helipad is also available on the island should you arrive by chopper. Beyond the beaches and tropical, turquoise waters, the island also boasts a wildlife nature reserve and a protected marine bay where you’ll be able to experience nature at its absolute purest. Discover the best of Indonesia’s magical and colorful sea life either with a scuba diving lesson or by whacking on a snorkel. Alternatively, visit Komodo Island, thanks to the resort’s personal cruiser, and see the famous Komodo dragon in its natural habitat.
Spacious and splendid, be delighted by Amanwana’s 58-square-meter luxury tents, which are either sheltered under nature’s fabulous forest canopy or sat overlooking the Flores Sea, so drift off to sleep by listening to jungle sounds or the calming ocean waves. Tents are equipped with all mod cons and are complimented by genuine Indonesian artwork and cozy creature comforts.
Why We Like It
We love nature and Amanwana’s nature excursions are among the most exotic and exciting. If you’re feeling brave, you’ll be able to visit the bat caves or, if you fancy a freshwater swim, head to the waterfalls. Moyo Island is buzzing with flora and fauna so you’ll quickly become acquainted with the island’s local wildlife from its deer and macaque monkeys to its eagles and ospreys. Rumour has it the wild Rusa deer graze about the resort at night-time so keep an eye out.
