Located slap bang on Jimbaran Bay, and surrounded by tropical gardens, Jimbaran Puri has direct access to one of Bali’s most beautiful beaches.
There are 42 traditional Balinese cottages set amidst the tropical gardens, all with soaring thatched ceilings, marble floors, white washed walls, and a private walled garden. Some are set back off the beach, while others are closer. For the ultimate in luxury, opt to stay in one of the 22 luxury pool villas, which all have a private sunken swimming pool and a spacious tropical garden complete with outdoor shower. Small touches such as a jet lag massage on arrival and a dedicated butler make the pool villas well worth the upgrade.
Jimbaran Puri's restaurant, Nelayan, is known to have the freshest seafood on the island, and deservedly so, as each morning the fishermen can be seen arriving with their catches. Choose from daily specials such as barracuda, or splash out on the five course lobster menu. Located right on the beach, the setting is fantastic. There are also local fish restaurants along the beach, ranging from the more basic warungs to the more upmarket eateries.
Facilities include a large swimming pool and excellent spa, and there is plenty to see and do around the hotel. Apart from the mandatory sunbathing and swimming, the market is nearby, the temple at Jimbaran is just a 15 minute walk away and surfing can be arranged not too far away either.
Why we love it
You can opt for a Luxury Pool Villa if just for the jet lag massage upon arrival.
