Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay
The Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay hits the high notes on every single level. There is so much to see and do here, that you could spend several weeks at the hotel and still be finding new experiences, classes, activities, nooks and crannies to explore. No matter what your age, whether travelling as a family, couple or group, gear up for an onsite cultural centre showcasing local art and woodwork, a surf school, Balinese cooking academy and artist workshop. There are cultural tours to enjoy, yoga and meditation classes, tennis courts and a gym, traditional dance tutorials and even an onsite temple for anyone in need of a holy blessing. That’s all before you even hit the golden sands of Jimbaran Beach which the Four Seasons Hotel sits on, where kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, overwater bikes and trips out on a catamaran are the order of the day.
Don’t worry though, as there is plenty of opportunity for all-out rest and relaxation here too, which is only right given the extraordinary surroundings of both the tropical Balinese coastline but also the resort itself, which is as good as any in the world. Design-wise, think lush gardens weaving around picturesque infinity pools, natural stone steps and thatched roofs, wooden decking and hammocks strewn between palm trees; in many ways the Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay is an extension of the coast itself.
This upmarket beach shack appeal meets Asian-inspired interior design, and it instantly creates a sense of peace and tranquillity. So while little ones are being entertained in the fantastic kids’ club, you can lounge by one of the three beautiful swimming pools, pull up a sunbed on the beach or head to the spa. Here, any pre-holiday strains will melt away, as the long list of carefully thought out treatments and relaxation therapies will have you coming back for more. On top of the traditional massages, other specialities include fresh coconut body scrubs, detoxifying wraps, jasmine-scented facials and natural healing remedies; just another highlight of the wonderful Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay.
Then, inside your accommodation the attention to detail and impressively high standards certainly don’t stop. Each villa has a sun deck and private infinity pool, some with pretty gardens and decorative outdoor fountains. Walls are bright white, the bathrooms are clad in either marble or natural wood, complete with a vintage rolltop bathtub and rainforest shower, and when night-time comes, a deluxe king bed and wraparound drapes await. The Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay villas also enjoy ocean views as you would hope, and many of them are framed by verdant trees which adds a little seclusion. There are family options, four-bedroom residences which have a fully-equipped kitchen and huge grounds, and much more besides.
There is almost too much to say about the gastronomic experience you can expect while staying at this Four Seasons Bali resort, as they take the quality and presentation of food very seriously. The mouth-watering result is endlessly appealing, innovative flavour fusions inspired from across Asia and Europe, always fresh and seasonal and matched only by their idyllic setting. Seafood here is of particular note though if the thought of getting ready for dinner is a little too much, then the friendly Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay staff will bring a gourmet meal straight to your villa or a candlelit table on the beach; bliss.
