Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

Apr 10, 2011

Perched atop a cliff at the southern tip of Jimbaran Bay, this Four Seasons is, expectedly, luxurious and dramatic. The 147 Balinese-style, thatch-roofed villas are built onto the gently-sloping hillside; Indonesian artwork and colorful batik textiles adorn the elegant interiors, while outdoors, frangipani-filled gardens and private plunge pools open out to panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and the soaring Mount Agung. An arsenal of water sports (catamarans, windsurfers and canoes) awaits at the resort’s white-sand beach, while a super snazzy spa is accompanied by an excellent selection of traditional therapies and faultless service. When it comes to dining, the beachside PJ’s offers a laid-back vibe alongside fresh seafood, and its canopy beds make a great spot for chilling out over sundowners.

Four Seasons Sayan

Entrances don’t get much more dramatic than this: from the driveway a footbridge suspended 25 meters above a velvet-green gorge connects to an elliptical lotus pond set on the rooftop of the resort and descends into the 180-degree-view lobby.

Capella Ubud Bali

Hotel designer Bill Bensley has dreamed up some of Southeast Asia’s most glamorous resorts, but his favorite travel memories are those of childhood camping trips. That love of nature, along with Bensley’s obsession with old-world style, informed his vision for the first Balinese property from the Singapore-based Capella Hotel Group.
