Saying goodbye to this peaceful place, one recognizes how the building designer (Edward Tuttle, California) incorporated Borobudur Temple aspects to be reflected in the resort structure.
Travel Day: Yogyakarta airport to Bali, Indonesia 1 hr. 20 minutes. Crossing the equator…moving south….when it is less humid and a little cooler (winter). Photo just before (N) and just after (S) crossing equator.
A short flight brought us to Bali and a long transfer 1 hour + to our hotel the Amankila, a magical Oasis. Amankila (which means peaceful hill) opened in 1992 set on a cliffside overlooking the Lombok Strait in East Bali. Below the resort is its private stretch of sand and beach club. The sand is black (volcanic) sand.
