Belmond Jimbaran Puri invites third generation artist, I Nyoman Teker, to introduce guests to the tradition of egg painting.
How to explain a resort that is close to the airport but immune to the roaring sounds of the planes? It’s a conundrum that guests of Belmond Jimbaran Puri often ask yet the property, with a clear view of aircraft landing and taking off in the distance to the right, manages to pull off.
The location of this beachfront, 64-cottage and -villa resort is one of its greatest assets, on a calm, quiet, shallow bay, never more than a 20-minute transfer from the Ngurah Rai International Airport. Its setting in the centre of Jimbaran is Bali through and through—the village is still a fisherman’s enclave and the shops are mostly independent local enterprises. Nothing has changed here for decades, making the experience like one of visiting Bali in the 1980s, before the island’s rapid development.
En route to the resort guests pass through the village, watch as local markets, temples, and small businesses appear and disappear, before turning into a side road. Suddenly, overhanging banyan trees appear, creating the effect of a tunnel reaching into a hidden realm. The hotel’s entrance is so understated—at the side of the slim public road leading to the waterfront—that blink and you might miss it, just a small stone roundabout and a doorway, no blazing sign, nor fanfare, nor overbearing security prelude. Walk in through the entrance, across a small bridge over a lotus pond, and the lobby appears, an open space with a high ceiling and a roof of bamboo and alang-alang, or blady grass.
Belmond Jimbaran Puri sits at the heart of a wide sheltered bay renowned for its calm, warm waters – a true bathers’ paradise. Traditional Balinese style architecture and lush gardens make the hotel the perfect place to rest and unwind.
With a laid-back restaurant beside the water and its signature Balinese Spa offering traditional and ayurvedic treatments, this resort provides a great setting for couples in search of exotic romance.Download Factsheet
