Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.

Amanusa is set on a hillside overlooking the Nusa Dua area of Bali's southern tip. Its secluded location and dazzling suites make Amanusa one of the most exclusive, luxury properties on this lush and fascinating island.
Amanusa, meaning 'peaceful isle', is an exclusive luxury boutique hotel with a commanding hillside location. The 37 striking thatched roof suites sit on a peaceful garden hillside in southern Bali overlooking the azure Indian Ocean.
Each of Amanusa's suites is tucked behind a mossy stone wall to ensure privacy and incorporates Balinese design with a contemporary edge. Every conceivable comfort and convenience has been considered from sunken baths to four poster beds with white drapes and soothing palettes of cream, beige and honey. All suites have a private tropical courtyard garden perfect for romantic alfresco dining and several have a private swimming pool.
Amanusa's Beach Club is set on an idyllic private beach of pristine powdery white sand dotted with comfy bales, perfect for escaping the sun, enjoying a drink or snack or even a private sunrise breakfast. The coral reef that fringes the beach provides a safe lagoon for swimming and watersports and the beach club is also a fabulous setting for beach barbecues.
Amanusa is an ideal spot for golf lovers as the adjacent Bali Golf and Country Club has one of Asia's top five courses and Amanusa guests can enjoy the resplendent coastal setting and the facilities there. Other ways to pass the time include fabulous spa treatments using organic local products including the two hour Balinese lulur body scrub, a traditional exfoliation and body polish treatment which concludes with a Balinese massage and luxurious herbal bath.
The nearby beaches of Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Sanur all have an abundance of restaurants, bars, handicrafts and antique shops so although Amanusa is an oasis of calm, it is easy to get out and about and explore the region's other attractions.
Amanusa has 35 thatched roof Garden, Deluxe and Pool Suites and each is an individual Balinese retreat with a four poster bed, sunken bath and walled garden. Garden Suites are self contained and private with lots of foliage and indoor and outdoor living space. For views of the ocean or the golf course, the Deluxe Suites are the best choice, whereas for the ultimate in privacy, the Pool Suites have spacious terraces and private pools.
Children are very welcome to come and stay at Amanusa who offer all families 4 hours complimentary babysitting per day. Special child friendly activities can also be organised on request.
In-villa dining and private dinners at romantic spots around Amanusa's grounds are an experience not to be missed but The Terrace and The Italian restaurant also serve wonderful Asian and Continental food in striking settings. The Beach Club organises non-motorised watersports, serves drinks and light meals and is home to one of Bali's finest beaches. There is also a swimming pool, extensive spa treatment menu, gym, two tennis courts and library.
Activities at Amanusa are extensive for those who can bear to leave the fabulous beach or the comfort and peace of their suites and include snorkelling, golf, boat charters, picnics and barbecues, cooking classes, cycling, temple and village visits.

This stunning resort is nestled in the middle of the Bali National Golf Club. From when you first arrive enjoy views of the manicured lawns and picturesque coastline from your private villa or The Terrace Restaurant. There are so many ways to relax at this resort from getting a massage in your room to a romantic private dinner at the beach club. The villas are spacious, but venture out to the huge main pool that will be fun for all the family. If you would like a more private setting opt for a pool villa.

Amanusa like every Aman retains the flawless service yet has a true individual style and pazzaz to it. The pool villas are spacious and enjoy the balmy Balinese weather either from your bale or the sun loungers by the pool. It was really nice enjoying a healthy smoothie on the Terrace and watching the sun set on Nusa Dua and the twinkling lights in the distance shining up at me!

Amanusa was a real highlight for me in terms of boutique accommodation in southern Bali. Like all other Aman properties, the property offers understated luxury with its selection of Garden, Deluxe and Pool Suites. Each of the suites has been beautifully furnished with four poster beds, sunken baths and an alang-alang thatched roof. The property also has a beautiful main swimming pool, a Beach Club where non-motorised watersports can be arranged, and two great restaurants. The food at The Terrace was absolutely delicious and the views across Nusa Dua and the Indian Ocean are beautiful.

Offering the slick and effortless welcome that Aman hotels know how to do best, this is a peaceful retreat on the outskirts of Nusa Dua. It has beautiful villa accommodation, a super pool with a view and a private Beach Club just 2 minutes away to enjoy the golden sands and service on tap. The suites are all very similar, but for added luxury, you can opt for your own private pool in a Pool Suite. It is remarkably peaceful and private and is a superb option for a total getaway.

As I walked through the lobby and was welcomed by the exceptionally friendly staff, the first thing that struck me was the spectacular view overlooking the incredibly large swimming pool and the Indian Ocean in the distance. The new villas offering 4 or more rooms are extremely spacious and set over two differing levels, along with a large swimming pool. Just 20 minutes from Denpasar Airport and close to Seminyak and Kuta, Amanusa is in a fantastic location, whether you wish to explore the shops and restaurants, or simply relax in the hotel. You can also head to the Beach Club and unwind on a bale or walk along the white sandy beach.
Olivia Smith (Staff)
Amanusa is endowed with the same charm and elegance of the other Aman properties of Bali, whilst being in a hugely convenient location for the airport, should you need an overnight stop before boarding your floatplane to Amanwana. I absolutely loved the enormous pool flanked by high-walled buildings, giving a really regal and imposing atmosphere. The suites are typically Aman, with simple and understated dcor and all the little touches that let you know that you are definitely in an Aman property! The service is fantastic of course but the real draw of Amanusa is the superb golf course that it resides next to - perfect for the avid golfer looking to play 18 holes in paradise!
