Ayana Resort & Spa Bali

Oct 19, 2009

Beach retreats are aplenty in Bali, but what sets Ayana Resort & Spa apart from the crowd is its secluded clifftop location and majestic surrounds on Jimbaran Bay. The 90-hectare hideaway boasts an impressive line-up of facilities, including 19 restaurants, five swimming pools and an 18-hole golf course. The 290 rooms and suites and 78 freestanding villas are created as mini sanctuaries, each outfitted with modern amenities alongside Indonesian artifacts within its airy, beige-hued interiors.

On the wellness side, there’s the 22,000-square-meter Thermes Marins Spa, which offers European seawater therapies including the world’s largest Aquatonic pool as well as the Spa on the Rocks—two private pavilions set on offshore rocks. The Ocean Pool, nestled at the cliff-base with windswept vistas of the Indian Ocean, makes the perfect spot to idle an afternoon away with a cocktail in hand. Come sunset, switch over to Rock Bar, a popular spot that draws the island’s chic set for its martinis and sea vistas.
