As one of the original properties on Bali’s Jimbaran Beach, on the narrow neck of Bali’s south coast, Belmond Jimbaran Puri has an air of elegance and tradition. Surrounded by lush vegetation and pristine beaches, this secluded retreat is set on a majestic four acres of grounds and manicured lawns. Here it’s all about the natural look, with polished wood or marble floors, swaths of muslin and thatch roofs. Such Balinese elements as bamboo, coral and blooming lotus are used throughout the resort, and authentic Balinese artwork dots the walls.
Bed and Bath
Due to the shape and location of the property, each of the 64 cottages and villas is close to the beach. In 2009 the resort added new pool villas; the huge One-Bedroom Deluxe Pool Villas have their own gardens with gazebos and private terraces with a pool. Though not as large, the Garden View Cottage Suites are still spacious and have high teak ceilings and contemporary furnishings. The Two-Bedroom Garden View Pool Cottages and Luxury Cottages have spacious bathrooms with sunken terrazzo bathtubs and powerful overhead rain showers.
Guests have two restaurants to choose from: beachside Nelayan, which specializes in fish, and Tunjung, where an American breakfast is served each morning. Between meals, be sure to visit the large stone-lined swimming pool and the Beach Spa, which uses products made from natural ingredients. The Balinese Coffee Scrub is an ideal pick-me-up, using fine-ground home-grown coffee and volcanic pumice from Mount Agung. And after a day at the beach, a Jasmine Javanese treatment will exfoliate away the effects of the hot Balinese sun.
How to Get There
We have just spent seven nights at the Belmond in pool villa 70. Drinks on the beach as the sun sets are an amazing memorable experience not to missed. Dinner, also on the beach, was some of the best food we have ever been served in Bali. The resort is beautiful, quiet, tranquil and unique. The staff are excellent nothing is too much trouble, a special thanks to Sri our butler. The spa is good and so is DeBali spa a little private spa just down the road from the entrance to Belmond. We have had many wonderful holidays in Bali at great resorts. For us the Belmond is tops. Thank you Belmond!
We travel to Belmond Jimbaran at the advice of a local travel agent. The resort is fairly small and definitely had an authentic Bali vibe. We stayed in a villa, which was spacious and nice. The staff was attentive and the service was sufficient. My gripe would be that there are limited dining options on campus and not much nearby. Also, this was a beach front resort, but the water seemed stirred up and not too clear. Overall, pleasant experience, but I would probably have preferred Uluwatu where there is a bit more going on.
We stayed here for 7 nights and booked through Luxury Escapes. The deal was amazing and we got buffet breakfast, daily cocktail and 3 course ala crate dinner every night. The food selection is extensive, mixture of local and European dishes and lots of seafood. The location was perfect. Sunsets every night and the beach is ideal for swimming. The view is superb and you can see the local fishing people coming in and out on their boats. We relaxed on the beach beds and there were no big crowds in the resort so no need to reserve your lounger or day bed. Service is excellent, the staff are very friendly and accommodating to all your requests. I would totally recommend to any one wanting a luxurious beach side resort, it totally met our expectations
