This resort, with its series of interlocking, terraced buildings set right into a cliff side, takes full advantage of its setting above the Lombok Strait. Each of the 34 modern, separate guest villas here has its own spacious veranda with daybeds or an infinity pool, most with dizzying views over the sea. The interiors are typical Aman-gorgeous, with inlaid marble-and-wood floors, arched teak window casings, carved bedsteads with luxurious linens, and soaring cane ceilings. Villas are interconnected by winding tree-shaded walkways to the main building, where light cuisine is served in the restaurant, and passion fruit margaritas can be sipped in thatched bales (gazebos). Just below, there's a vast three-tired infinity pool, and a cabana-lined beach, where traditional Balinese massages are given on tables set into the sand. The sheer fabulousness of it all might tempt you to stay on the property for the duration of your stay—but don't. This part of the island—often called "Old Bali"—is chock-full of ancient palaces and temples to explore, and charming villages where you can haggle over snake fruit and carved wooden masks in outdoor markets. The resort offers day trips to all these attractions—which you can choose to explore on foot or via mountain bike or Jeep.
