Amanwana, meaning peaceful forest is the only resort located on Moyo and is set on a beach in a secluded cove overlooking the Flores Sea. The protected marine park offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkelling in Indonesia, and Amanikan, the camp's 32-metre coastal cruiser takes guests to Rinca and Komodo islands.

Accommodation in 20 luxury tented suites, a jungle spa and a tented restaurant serving the local catch of the day, make Amanwana the ultimate wilderness hideaway.

Why we like it

Those places on the planet that are hardest to reach are often the most memorable travel experiences. Amanwara fits this bill. For the ultimate trip of a lifetime combine a five day stay at Amanwana, with a Komodo Expedition on board the Amanikan boat


Spot parrot fish, spotted rays and sea turtles amongst the vibrant reefs, found just off the beach. Spend the day hiking to limestone pools or explore jungle caves. For a treat take a starlight cruise around Amanwana bay.


  • Meals are served in The Restaurant overlooking the mountains of Sumbawa and Flores Sea
  • Enjoy an Amanwana martini at the beach bar
  • Have an open-air spa treatment at the Jungle Cove Spa
  • Work with the Amanwana team on their coral restoration programme
  • Learn to dive or hone your skills at the PADI dive school


Amanwana is found on Moyo Island and is reached via a 65- flight from Bali to Sumbawa. The flight operates four times a week during June to September with an additional flight in July and August. Alternatively guests can travel by Cessna Caravan private charter to Sumbawa. From Sumbawa it is a 40-minute speedboat transfer.
