After years traveling the world experiencing the best and the worst of hotels, Melissa Perlman knew what she wanted to create. A place where people could come - solo or with friends, have an adventure, eat healthy food, do yoga, workout, meet like minded people and return home feeling and looking better than when they arrived.

Melissa and her fabulous team in 2009
Amansala is taken from the two Sanskrit words Peace and Water.
After years of traveling through Southeast Asia and experiencing the best and the worst of hotels, she knew what she wanted to create. A place where people could come, solo or with their partners or friends, and have an adventure where they would meet other like minded people, eat good healthy food, be on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, workout, do yoga, see the highlights of the area, and return home feeling and looking better than when they arrived.
Amansala is all about getting back to basics, but with style and comfort and that is reflected from the moment you set foot on the property.
