We are intrepid travelers who love to get off the beaten track to explore. Remote Lands did a great job of arranging our trip to some of the less trodden parts of Indonesia.
Peter & Bryna, New Jersey


Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: The remote Indonesian island of Moyo is a nature and marine reserve just 15 km of the coast of Sumbawa, East of Bali. Amanwana is the only resort on the island.

History: Due to its pristine, nearly untouched qualities, Moyo island retains the historical charm and natural beauty that mass tourism can often destroy.

Service: The newly-debuted Aman X boat whisks guests from Sumbawa to Moyo island in just 30 minutes now, instead of the lengthy 1.5 hours it once took.


It may be the only resort on a private tropical island, but there is still plenty for guests to do at the Amanwana, from a stunning spa with local and international therapies, to water sport adventures, a unique music pavilion, and more.

Boat Cruises and Kayaking

The Amanwana has a fleet of boats specifically designated for guest pleasure activities, including fishing, diving, or even just plain cruising. Sunset and starlight cruises can be arranged in the bay, and trips to nearby islands can also be made. Adventurous guests may prefer to take the single or double-person kayaks out for a spin, to explore “Turtle Street”.

Jungle Cove Spa

Under the shade of tamarind trees, set slightly back from the beach, Jungle Cove Spa is an open-air haven for those in search of Indonesian-style pampering. Three treatment areas boast stunning views of the bay. Exotic locally-flavoured treatments include black Borneo body scrubs and fresh fruit facials.


Guests may choose to brush up on Indonesian culture and history in the resort’s library, which boasts a wide range of Indonesia-related books, as well as a variety of books on marine life. Internet is also available here.

Music Pavilion and Boardwalk

A music pavilion is located at the camp’s edge, near the shore. Here, in an open-air forest sanctuary, guests can enjoy music from an iPod docking station on cushions and loungers. A boardwalk lined with sun loungers and shade umbrellas is an ideal place for guests to catch some sun. Water sports equipment is provided here for guests to enjoy fun in the ocean.


The sole restaurant and bar at Amanwana wears many hats, from a breakfast pavilion to a romantic bayview fine dining establishment.

Private Campfire Dining and Starlight Cruises

Couples in search of some romantic quality time with extra pizzaz can dine by a campfire, or enjoy the delights of a starlight dinner cruise.

The Dining Room and Bar

This open-air pavilion provides diners with not only pristine views of the Amanwana Bay, but also a comfortable place to relax, lounge, and enjoy delicious Asian and Western dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A teak-top bar provides a comfortable venue for aperitifs or digestive cocktails.
