Access to the Amanwana Resort on Moyo Island (2019)

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.
