If you want a sense of how life is lived in a typical Balinese village, Amandari purports to provide it. And the property's 31 low stone-and-teak villas, set among terraced rice fields overlooking the Ayung River gorge, do look like the region's traditional homes. The river-stone pathways winding around the grounds, planted with plumeria and banana trees and decorated with stone carvings, also have an old-world authenticity. But the similarity pretty much ends there. Not too many local villagers' houses have Javanese-marble floors or sunken oversized tubs in glass-walled bathrooms. Or, for that matter, private outdoor pavilions for spa treatments, or a glittering green-tiled infinity pool where musicians serenade during dinner hour. (Not that the guests are complaining about any of this.) The resort hosts several cultural-immersion experiences, though; one of the most popular is the trip to a local market with the restaurant's chef, who teaches guests about the produce for sale and shows them  how to use it in traditional Balinese dishes.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Set in a valley of palms and rice terraces, the resort has river-stone walkways that connect perfect-scoring thatch-roof suites, each fronted with a Balinese-style gateway and embellished with handwoven batiks and local teak. "I adored the bath—great products in unlimited amounts." Breakfast is "perfect—I wanted to order the entire menu." Staying here "spoils you for any other hotel."
