Direct Seaplane from Bali to the Amanwana Resort on Moyo Island

Flying to Moyo Island in Indonesia is part of the adventure of staying at the exclusive Amanwana Resort. What better way to arrive, however, than by a door-to-door seaplane shuttle that whisks you away from the security and comfort of the Bali International airport to land on the ocean directly in front of the Amanwana Resort.  The adventure really begins after take-off as you climb out over the south coast of Bali up along Sanur Beach and past Padangbai and the cliff side Amankila Resort. From here you can often see Mt. Agung, the tallest volcano on Bali, and the sparkling green rice terraces that grace its foothills. The pilot will continue to climb as you cross the Lombok strait where the 12,296 ft high Mt. Rinjani happens to be right on your flight path on route to Moyo Island.

Amanwana is on a tropical Indonesian island, not far from Bali. Well, not far geographically, but the experience is far away from the discos and busy beaches of the mainland. This is deliciously serene seclusion, with nothing around except jungle, sand, and ocean.

The entire island is a nature reserve and the only way to reach Amanwana is by plane. Once there, though, life is anything but primitive. You’ll sleep in romantic, luxurious tents, each juxtaposed against a canopy of greenery. They’re big, too, and partially open to the warm air. Outside, a stone deck provides the perfect place to take in the sights and sounds of the jungle.

Under a canopy of tropical forest, the camp’s 20 safari-style tents offer an abundance of 21st-century comforts amid elegant decor and Indonesian art. Adventure-worn appetites will be quickly sated in Amanwana’s inviting teak bar and beach-side restaurant. Alfresco beach and garden dinners, either around a campfire or à deux, as well as private barbecues, are also possible.

For a spectacular diving and snorkeling site, look no further than the calm waters right in front of the resort. That idyllic seclusion lends itself to long days of lounging on the beach, napping on your private deck, and playing in (or below) the warm seas. Amanwana is the ideal base for longer sailing expeditions around the archipelago on Amanikan, a six-berth coastal cruiser, or Amandira, a 10-berth two masted phinisi; larger groups can charter both vessels in tandem. Sail in search of the Komodo Dragon (March to October), or explore the Spice islands and the waters of Raja Ampat (November to March), which supports the world’s most diverse marine life.
