The Balinese inspired architecture ensures they blend in with the surroundings, and the views of either Jimbaran Bay or the tropical gardens are incomparable.
There are four dining options at the Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, from the traditional Indonesian and Balinese inspired cuisine at Warung Mie, Italian and Western food at Taman Wantilan and the Coconut Grove Club respectively, or just light bites at the Pool Terrace Café. Alternatively, opt for one of the hotel's Epic Dining Experiences, whether this be a candlelit dinner for two on Jimbaran beach, or five courses on a bed on the beach whilst being serenaded by a live jazz band.
The Four Seasons reputation for world class facilities is apparent at Jimbaran Bay. There is a large infinity pool, fantastic spa with a wide range of treatments on offer including yoga, a fitness centre, tennis courts, and a cookery school.
