Amandari (peaceful spirits) is located about 60 minutes from Denpasar’s international airport, and 10 minutes from the arts community of Ubud in Central Bali. Designed as a Balinese village, the property features andesite walkways and high paras-stone walls to mimic traditional local design. The pathway that runs through Amandari and down the valley to the river below is said to be sacred land. Every six months for hundreds of years, Balinese from the village of Kedewatan, where Amandari is located, have taken the path through the resort grounds down to a pool of holy water. Just above this spring-fed pool sit three modest shrines and a 7th-century tiger carved in stone.
