Its most luxurious villa costs $8,000 a night, while the cheapest starts at $1,150.
Amanoi is the only resort permitted in the national park, and thus follows strict conservation regulations like promoting plant-based dishes, reducing food waste and limiting activities that may harm the national park ecosystem.
