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
After a month of studying in Bali I treated myself to a few days at this beautiful resort. I stayed in a superior garden cottage which was well equipped and very comfortable. The staff were courteous and friendly and the facilities great.Location on a white coral sand beach 10 out of 10!
I absolutely loved our private villa room w/ a private pool that had an indoor and outdoor shower. My partner and I definitely enjoyed all aspects of the room we had for 3 nights. The breakfast is okay, pretty average but was included. The beach bar and restaurant are beautiful, we did not eat dinner at Belmond Jimbaran but we did enjoy the sunset on the beach one evening. The service is also average, we did have to wait quite a lot a few times for drinks. At one point, we had to go to the bar because no one would come back to ask if we wanted a refill, I found that odd. The only complaint I have is about our butler. When we got home from dinner one evening around 9:30 PM we were interrupted by a constant ringing of our doorbell. We were already in bed and my boyfriend had to dress to go and answer it. It was the villa butler who just wanted to know if they room was made up that day. I have a few problems with this, #1 we were already in bed and had to dress to answer the door, #2 I find 9:30pm a little too late to be disturbing guests in a private villa and #3 shouldn't the butler know if the room had been made up?
This was my only real complaint I have but did have a few other experiences to share.
In our villa there seemed to be a lot of pigeons that liked to camp out on the roof. They are extremely noisy and if you're a light sleeper this definitely kept me awake, especially when they really get going around 6-7am. My boyfriend never heard them but I found them to be a nuisance.
My SPA experience was not the most pleasant. It is a beautiful little set up but not very private at all. During the last 10 minutes of our couples massage, a very loud and inconsiderate couple were standing right outside of our massage room and having a very loud argument/possible conversation? Either way, staff did not ask them to be quiet and it made the end of our massage not very enjoyable.
Overall, I would come back and avoid the massage. It was not out of this world. I would definitely try dinner at the resort but we did not have the chance. The beach is one of the best on the island. We'll for sure be back. The villa we stayed in was breathtaking and the private pool was a very comfortable temperature as well. Overall a pleasant stay.
My partner and I stayed here for our anniversary and treated ourselves to two nights in a suite pool villa. It was the nicest place either of us has ever stayed!
You get exactly what you pay for with this resort, but it is very pricey. If you go with the knowledge that you’re going to spend a lot of money, I can not recommend this place enough.
We didn’t even feel like we wanted to venture out of the resort as it was so luxurious to just stay in our villa!
The staff are lovely and the food at the restaurant was a varied selection. Beautiful and romantic location set right on the beach.
Would absolutely love to stay here again in the future but will have to save some money first! A true 5 star experience.
