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.

Nusa Lembongan Is a Haven for Surfers and Divers

A bit beyond Bali, boats bob in waters so clear you can see their shadows in the sand. Beach clubs ask only that you shed your pretentions with your flip-flops. And mola molas and mantas remind us of the important things. From a cliffside resort at the heart of Nusa Lembongan, Jeninne Lee-St. John finds paradise is draped in bougainvillea.
