Lily Allen Got Engaged at Amankila, Which Looks Like This

December 28, 2010 at 12:32 PM | by | ()

It's the season of celebrity engagements! While most of us would be content with an intimate proposal in a sentimental location and a carat or two, celebrities go all out with their engagements, often popping the question with a monster five or six carat ring while on vacation at some to-die-for luxury resort.

After word came yesterday that Natalie Portman and LeAnn Rimes said "yes" to their lovers, we found out that pop singer Lily Allen also got engaged to her boyfriend, Sam Cooper, at the Amankila Resort in Bali from the luxe Aman Resorts.

And coincidentally, a HotelChatter Flickr Pool member, had just dropped these gorgey photos of the resort in our Flickr pool.

The resort sits on a private beach near the village of Manggis in East Bali with a volcano, Mount Agung serving as the resort's "dramatic backdrop." There are only 34 suites for guests here but all of them are free-standing, meaning you essentially have your own little thatched beach house for the duration of your stay.

Of course, not all suites are created equal, not even in paradise. The garden suites face the garden, the ocean suites face the ocean and the pool suites are enclosed within walls with their own private swimming pools. Three specialty suites are also available offering more room, more privacy and more amenities.

While we'd like to book an ocean suite and do absolutely completely nothing for a few days, water sports activities are available, cultural tours are offered and there's a spa to indulge in should laying on the beach not be relaxing enough.

Also, our Flickr member, Travel4Vitality, says the resort's three-tiered pool is "is one of the most photographed swimming pools of the world." That's because it looks right over the Lombok Strait.

Now what will it cost to stay here? Suites start at around $750 a night. Oh well, add it to our ever-growing Hotel Bucket List.
