Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia

Sensual seclusion blends sea and sky throughout this deluxe resort. The villas and estates are arranged Balinese-style, with living pavilions encircling open courtyards graced with plunge pools and showers. Guests stroll flower-edged paths down terraced hillsides to the spa center, which has eight treatment rooms; three spa suites include a Swiss shower and double massage beds. With a nod to the use of healing naturals in Indonesian therapies, treatments incorporate local touches, like massages performed with smoothed marble stones to fruit-based body glazes finished with a rum-and-truffle lotion. Guests can take lessons in the cooking school and or visit the nearby artist colonies.
