Located in Discovery Bay and built in 2000, Amanoka Villa (Aman-oka or "peaceful home in Indonesian) is living proof that imagination when it is executed to perfection can produce magical results. All materials are of the finest quality and many of the authentic design elements were imported from Bali, especially much of the wood and woven cane used for some of the ceilings. This is truly a world-class villa of remarkable beauty.
