The Amankila at 20

World Famous Amankila Resort, Bali Hosts Celebration of its First 20 Years


A gala cocktail gathering was held at the Amankila Resort on Saturday evening, July 21, 2012 to mark the 20th anniversary of the world-famous 34-suite resort perched on a hillside overlooking the Indian Ocean at Manngis, East Bali.

Guests were welcomed by a Balinese orchestra and costumed dancers at the hotel’s entrance before joining a Champagne reception punctuated by a gala Kecak fire Dance performance done on a specially constructed stage erected over the resort’s pool.

Many staff and guests who have been part of the resort's history over the past two decades were on hand for the evening, including legendary Asian hotelier Adrian Zecha, soon to be celebrating his 80th birthday.

It was Zecha and Franky Tjahadikarta who partnered to build the resort designed by architect Frank Tuttle 20 year ago. Like its sister Aman Resorts around the world, the Amankila was built to the ethos of preserving the natural beauty of the hotel’s locale.

When it opened in 1992, the Amankila was the second of what was eventually to become three Aman Resorts in Bali. The Amandari opened in 1989 and the Amanusa in the same year as the Amankila, later in 1992.
