Amanwana, Moyo Island, Indonesia

TravelPost Category - TravelTravel

Meaning ‘peaceful forest’, serene boutique hotel Amanwana is the only resort on the just-remote-enough  Indonesian sland of Moyo a pristine nature and marine reserve off the east coast of Bali. Its 20 swish tents enjoy striking views of the sparkling Flores Sea, a prime spot for beach-basking, sandcastle-building, diving and snorkelling far from the madding crowd. Think soaring jungle, endless ocean and countless places to play hide and seek…

Style: Indo-chic safari tents
Setting: Reef-fringed marine reserve

Need to know

Rooms: All 20 standalone tents are secluded, but you won’t have to rough it: solid walls and hardwood floors underpin the soaring canvas ceilings, air-con keeps things cool, and your net-draped king-size bed is the definition of romance. Add in sumptuous white divans, an elegant writing desk, a shower and double sinks, and Indonesian artworks, and you’ve got Asian safari chic.

Facilities: Lounge, Jungle Cove Spa, Spa Tent, bamboo-roofed music pavilion, library with books, DVDs and CDs, boutique, free WiFi throughout, gardens, 11 boats. In rooms: minibar, complimentary bottled water, air-conditioning.

In the know

Sleeping:
All Tents are spacious and child-friendly; ask for one set back in the jungle or nearer the main resort if you’re travelling with toddlers. Full board for children under 12 costs US$25 each a day; extra beds for older kids are US$100 a child a day.

Playing:
Building sandcastles never looked this good. With beautiful, empty beaches, sensational snorkelling, sailing, windsurfing and kayaking (plus diving for adventurous teens), boat charters and island excursions, and guided nature treks and jungle walks, entertaining kids will come naturally. If that doesn’t excite them, fish-feeding, deer-spotting and turtle-watching will.

Splashing:
Overlooking Amanwana Bay, the small, round freshwater dipping pool, nestled against a frond-fringed coral rock wall, is handy for cooling off if you’re basking on the sunloungers on the adjacent Boardwalk. There’s a shower set into the cliff-face, too.

Feasting:
The kitchen serves up an enticing mix of Asian and Western dishes in this open-sided, bamboo-roofed pavilion, open from day through to evening. Children are welcome in the restaurant at any time, and staff will happily knock up meals for kids on request.

No need to pack:
Nappies, which are sold at the resort’s shop.
