Jimbaran Bay is nestled away Bali’s southwestern coast, away from the busier tourist spots. The bay area is part of the narrow strip connecting the Bali mainland and the Bukit Peninsula. Due to this, the beach and the bay offer small protected areas of peace and quiet.
It certainly doesn’t have masses of tourists lining the streets like some other areas of Bali. The pace is far more mellow and has an authentic local community. While you can feel far removed from the hustle bustle of Bali, you are still just a short distance to explore the rest of the island. Depending on traffic, Kuta, Legian and Seminyak are about 30 minutes to 1-hour north. Uluwatu is just 15 mins – 30 minutes south. Nusa Dua is 15 minutes to 30 minutes away and Ubud is about 2 – 2.5 hrs away.
At Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali you can immerse yourself in 5-star Balinese island living at an affordable price. Located just a short walk from Jimbaran Beach and with Samasta Lifestyle Village on your doorstep, there is plenty to do in the area. It is what the resort offers however that makes this a hit with travellers.
Set on an expanse of lush tropical gardens with pools that intertwine between, the resort is a paradise within paradise. The pools are separated to adults only and children’s pool, allowing for peace and quiet when needed. Hammocks hang over the water and cabanas line the pool edge for those wanting a bit more space than the deck chairs.
The resort was built with families in mind, catering from parents needing a small break to kids who know how to have fun. Their global Family Programme provides fun, value and happy moments for every member of the family. Your family experience begins at check in, literally with small steps up to the counter allowing children to also be part of the check in process. There is a pirate themed Meera Kids Club that is open from 09.00 am to 08.00 pm daily and welcomes children aged four to 12 years old. You can still take in younger children, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
The Arkipela Spa & Wellness centre offers the ultimate in relaxation with a range of treatments to soothe and rejuvenate. For the fitness fanatics, there is a gym packed full of the latest workout equipment.
There are room types to suit any traveller and budget. The lead in Classic Room is appropriately appointed with modern Balinese amenities in a thoroughly modern setting. The 34 sqm rooms have the option of king-size bed or twin beds and have a bath and separate shower. Families can make use of the spacious Family Rooms which are also interconnecting, so you can open the door and suddenly you have a small villa. Rooms then vary in views from Garden View to Pool View. The ultimate Jimbaran Pool Suites are the largest suites at 108 sqm, and they boast incredible views over the Indian Ocean from the spacious private balconies. The private swimming pools also add another element of luxury. With separate seating areas, dining rooms, king-size beds, and opulent bathrooms, the Suites are perfect for honeymooners, families, or those who want a stylish spot.
Dining at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali is a cultural journey. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed in the Anarasa Restaurant. There is a communal feel here like you are home at your own kitchen, with live cooking stations and an international à la carte menu for meals throughout the day. There is even a breakfast bar for the kids full of creative delights like bananas dipped in chocolate, sandwiches with smiley faces, fruit kebabs and more. Light meals throughout the day can be shared around the pool areas in a relaxed environment.
For a special treat, head up to the rooftop at Above Eleven Bali Rooftop Bar & Restaurant. With views over Jimbaran Bay and Indian Ocean, Above Eleven is the perfect spot to savour the sunset with live music at the rooftop sky bar. The cocktails were as spectacular as the sunset and the food has a Peruvian-Japanese flare. There is even a family zone on the roof setup with an open-air cinema and beanbags for the kids.
