Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay


Tropical breezes waft through open-air buildings at this elegant Four Seasons property. All 147 villas and nine palatial estates rest on dramatically terraced land overlooking Jimbaran Bay. Lush vegetation and thoughtful landscaping design give each the feel of a secluded sanctuary. Privacy is paramount at this retreat; guest quarters, based on traditional Balinese domestic compounds, feature private plunge pools, outdoor sitting areas, and gardens. Guests follow a flower-lined path leading to the hotel's tranquil spa, which has nine treatment rooms and three spa suites that include a tropical garden and outdoor shower. With offerings ranging from Balinese massage and reiki to stress-reducing facials, the spa lures visitors who expect extreme indulgence.
