Located only 15 minutes from the airport on Bali’s south west coast, Jimbaran Bay is home to some of the island’s first hotels. With the white sand beach on Belmond Jimbaran Puri’s doorstep, the resort, which is set in lush tropical gardens, offers a very unpretentious and romantic atmosphere. The suites and villas offer seclusion, and the soft sand is the perfect setting for lazy and relaxing days spent beachside. Not an ideal place for nightlife (Kuta and Seminyak are almost an hour away), but the evening sky is the perfect location for romantic quality time.
Refresh and rejuvenate your senses with a yoga, meditation, tai chi or Balinese dance class. Or get crafty at one of the resort’s workshops, where local artisans are invited to teach guests about Balinese wood-carving or egg painting.
If the beach vibe and tranquil atmosphere isn’t enough to relax you, opt for a treatment at The Beach Spa where the therapist will knead you into a state of nirvana to the gentle sound of waves rolling in.
The Belmond Jimbaran Puri is the ideal choice if you’re looking for a stress-free tropical beach getaway for two.
Should you ever get bored, opt for water sports, such as surfing, kayaking and sailing or venture beyond the resort for a temple tour, village visits, or white-water rafting. There is plenty to see and do in Bali.
Romantic sunset walks along the beach are a must, and so are cocktails by the ocean, while you take in the breathtaking sky as it changes from orange to pink. Follow it up with a beach dinner, feasting on freshly grilled fish at Nelayan Restaurant (which also offers a mixture of local and Western meals), or head to Tunjung Restaurant for a candlelight tête-à-tête with Indonesian cuisine.
Should you get bored of the hotel’s restaurants, rest assured, just a five-minute walk away, there are plenty of local seafood restaurants on the beach where they dish up fish from the grill and spicy clams.
COTTAGES & VILLAS
The resort offers 64 Balinese-style Luxury Cottages (beach or garden-view), as well as Deluxe Pool Villas (available with one or two bedrooms).
The Deluxe Pool Villa is all you need for a relaxing getaway. The villa comes with a master bedroom that opens up into your very own pool, a private terrace, as well as a separate, spacious living room where you can enjoy daily afternoon tea or use it as your temporary office. The villa comes with butler service, so you can easily laze by the pool without ever having to go to the beach.
WHAT WE LOVE
- The relaxed, romantic vibe is perfect for couples who want to de-stress and recharge. Opt for a Deluxe Pool Villa for extra privacy.
- The resort is family-friendly and provides a children’s pool, child-friendly restaurants and babysitting.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
- Belmond Jimbaran Puri is a beach property, and because it isn’t situated on a hillside, the views are somewhat limited. However, the beach sunsets make up for it.
There’s a large free-form swimming pool with great sea view, but hopefully you’re lucky enough to get a Deluxe Pool Villa with your very own private pool.
You can enjoy spa treatments in one of the gazebos or on the beach. Either way, the tropical spa experience will echo the islands tranquil ambience. Be lulled to sleep by the lapping of the waves and the gentle breeze, as well as the frangipani smell and the traditional Balinese massage and healing techniques of your therapist.
