Discover Aman in Indonesia and China

ndonesia is a country of transitions and contrasts, where spellbinding beaches mark the threshold between ocean and rainforest; where religious traditions shift from island to island, and the eco-zones of Asia and Australia meet and mingle in the Lombok Strait. Seeded throughout this floating world, from the jungle interior of Bali to the hidden paradise shores of Moyo Island, five Aman destinations each provide distinct perspectives on the nation’s nature and culture, while Aman’s oceangoing vessel invites travellers on voyages to untouched atolls and isles unspoilt.


Step through a secret door into the grounds of Beijing’s Summer Palace. Wander the Unesco-listed streets of Lijiang Old Town. Discover Chinese culinary traditions in an ancient Hangzhou village. Rejuvenate in camphor-scented serenity outside downtown Shanghai. For all the bustle and clamour of modern-day China, Aman promises balance, peace and cultural immersion through four unique properties, each offering a different and unforgettable perspective on the spiritual heritage and contemporary character of a vast, complex and extraordinarily beautiful land.

A natural paradise, Amanwana is on the beautiful island of Moyo, a veritable Eden in the Flores Sea. In 2022, Moyo Island was designated a National Park by the Indonesian government, ensuring that it's stunning landscapes and diverse marine life is protected for generations to come. This allows Amanwana a unique intimate setting surrounded by true wilderness.

Overlooking the turquoise waters of Amanwana Bay – a protected marine park – this wilderness hideaway offers full-board accommodation in just 17 luxury guest tents and unparalleled access to some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Indonesia

Claiming a breathtaking stretch of coastline on the Lombok Strait, Amankila rests on a lush hillside beneath sacred Mount Agung. Connected by frangipani-lined walkways through the treetops, stilted suites offer spectacular views high on the hillside, while a three-tier infinity pool cascades at the property’s heart and the Beach Club leads to a private black-sand beach.

Presided over by a sacred stone tiger, Amandari was designed after a traditional Balinese village on the verdant lip of the Ayung River Gorge. Free-standing guest suites are reached via winding pathways, while the curving swimming pool mimics the rice paddies below. Close to the artistic centre of Ubud, this place of peace invites both reflection and the exploration of Bali’s cultural heart.

Perfectly placed for exploring the region’s historic and natural attractions, or for simply relaxing in blissful surroundings, Amanjiwo cascades from a lofty rotunda down the hillside to a magnificent pool, effortlessly balancing cultural discovery with peace and restoration.
