Relaxation and celeb spotting are the call of the day in Jimbaran. Starting life as a small finishing village, the white sandy beach is now home to several luxury hotels and villas.
Jimbaran Bay and Jimbaran Beach, located south of Kuta on the southwest coast of Bali, offer visitors peace, tranquillity and utter luxury during their Bali holidays. Formerly a small fishing village, Jimbaran now hosts five-star resorts, high-end private villas, stunning white sand and, unexpectedly, a Norwegian University called Gateway College. With most visitors coming to Jimbaran for indulgence in elegance and relaxation, don’t plan to spend your Bali holiday here if you’re seeking a thriving nightlife. Situated near Kuta it’s easy to use Jimbaran as a base and head to Kuta for dancing and disco until the sun comes up. Having said that, there are always exceptions! The Rock Bar at AYANA Resort & Spa is a favourite for visitors and locals alike, and the adjacent club is a place travellers will line up to gain entrance to! While located a fair distance from the cultural draws of Central Bali, like the town of Ubud, Jimbaran is close enough that these areas can be reached in day trips. Take a front-row seat at some of the best sunsets in Bali, with the stretch of beach along Jimbaran Bay offering spectacular views over the glistening Indian Ocean, with reds and oranges vibrant under the darkening night sky. Dining options line the streets and alleyways, from inexpensive and fresh local cuisine to five-star dining options situated within the myriad resorts dotting the town. While Jimbaran has seen its population expand, at its heart it’s still a traditional Balinese community and visitors will feel as though they’re getting an authentic experience while staying here. A friendly society exists outside of your resort walls, so to experience Bali holidays that incorporate culture, history and true beachside relaxation, speak to a My Bali holiday expert today and plan your dream getaway.
