This tranquil oasis, close to calm Jimbaran Bay, epitomizes the soul-soothing style of this lovely Indonesian island. Open-air thatch-roofed pavilions are situated next to reflecting pools, the airy rooms have a relaxed tropical ambience (white bedding and walls offset by rich hardwood floors and Indonesian furnishings), and the public spaces, including six pools and five restaurants, offer a corner of serenity for every guest. The resort also dishes up a range of awesome only-in-Bali activities, like Balinese music sessions, cooking classes, fruit and flower arranging and sunset cycling tours of the village.
In the Area
Just on the doorstep, Jimbaran Bay comes alive after dark with dozens of open-air restaurants serving grilled just-caught fish (literally: diners select their dinner while it’s still splashing around) at tables on the sand. Farther afield, don’t miss Bali’s three most impressive temples: Tanah Lot, an ancient temple on an islet off the southwestern coast that hosts kecak and fire dances at dusk; Uluwatu, an 11th-century marvel set on rugged clifftops overlooking the Indian Ocean; and Besakih, the Mother Temple, set on the volcanic slopes of Mount Agung. After all that spirituality, get a dose of materialism back in Jimbaran at Jenggala, a factory that produces gorgeous ceramics that fuse tradition and modernity delightfully.
How to Get There
We returned to this Hotel for the sixth or so time... for many reasons. When you enter the resort from the buzzing street and outside hectics of a very touristy and overcrowded Bali, you immediately find yourself in a haven of tranquility and peace. Despite its size, the hotel feels very spacious, private and quiet; there is always plenty of space at the beach and the wonderfully maintained gardens and pools. It’s incredibly relaxing to spend a day by the pools or beach, with the hotel staff taking excellent care of ones every wish. I highly recommend spending the extra money for a club InterContinental experience, the club facilities such as the lounge and the separate pool area are well worth is. If its in your budget I recommend to go for the suites or one of the Villas. We chose to go for the villa (there were 4 of us) and we LOVED it despite the fairly high price. What you get in addition to the regular great service is so much more than extra space to live in: all staff are taking extra extra extra great care of you and the personal butler service is an experience not to be missed. Fresh fruit at the beach? A drink while soaking in the hot tub ... you don‘t even need to ask for it, these amenities appear magically with even as much as a mention. Don‘t feel like walking to the massage services at the other end of the resort ... your buttler has already anticipated it and brought the little golf cart to drive you over. You find yourself thinking „How do they do it ... do they read your mind?“ We can’t thank Augustama and Yoko, our two buttlers enough for their remarkable service. From the moment we moved in all the way to the luggage drop off at the airport they provided for everything we needed. But also other staff members in the Club Lounge ... too many to name here and in the regular breakfast restaurant (I remember Dedi M. Among many others - always went above and beyond to provide a great vacation. In short ... we cant wait to return to this special place with its special people. You look for a special vacation... this is the place to go!
We loved our 2 days in Intercontinental Bali. Wonderful beach and pools, amazing gardens,excellent food and service,renewed rooms and buildings.
For sure it is the best place to stay in Jimbaran and for staying in the beach and pools it is one of the best options in Bali. It is close to the airport and they can arrange transfers and also vip arrival assistance which is great after a long flight.
4. 餐廳：試了飯店內兩間餐廳（Jimbaran Gardens, Bella Cucina）和Sunset beach bar，口味普通，CP值不高。smoothie試過香蕉和芒果口味，味道不錯，不喝酒的人可以試試。早餐分兩間，其中在泳池畔的那間選擇不多，有點失望，但若是靠近第3棟的早餐餐廳，選擇種類就很多，建議到這邊享用早點，但遇到尖峰時刻可能需要排隊 。
建議：室外設置吸菸區及非吸菸區，這樣吸煙人士不會影響到非吸煙者的心情。Suggestion: to set up smoking area and non-smoking area near the swimming pool. So non-smoker guests won't be impacted.
We've visited Bali every spring during the past six years and Bali Intercontinental is our favorite hotel. It's either our first or last stop in Bali since it's located in Jimbaran, which is probably 20 mins to the airport only. We booked the club room this time in January and was surprised to be upgraded to a two-floored suite. Kids gone crazy even though they only sleep on the sofa bed downstairs. XD . The club lounge is superb, with great afternoon tea snacks and drinks. Glad that now we can enjoy the cocktail hour by the pool as well. The newly renovated breakfast place looks great, the fresh juice bar (where you can order customized juice) is gone, which is understandable because the blender's noisy. However the only regret is that the Japanese food area and the fruit area seems to be smaller than it was before, other than that it's very good. Love the semi-outdoor area. Anyway, great hospitality as always, will definitely come back. 洲際飯店是我們在峇里島最喜歡的酒店，因為鄰近機場，通常是我們的最後一站。這次訂了Club房型，認識的員工歡迎我們「回家」，而且還被升等到兩層樓的套房，非常驚喜，孩子們開心極了！Club Lounge的飲食和服務都一如以往是最棒的。更好的是現在可以在泳池旁邊享用免費的雞尾酒，太棒了！我們一定會再回來！
We stayed at this hotel 7nights. Food is also good, wifi is good, breakfast are amazing, staf are very friendly and helpfuly, resavation are quickly, special swimming pool are the best! House keeper are very good.
