set­ting down roots Land­scaped

with thou­sands of trees —banyans, flam­boy­ants, co­conut palms, Mada­gas­car al­monds, eu­ca­lyp­tus— Rimba Jim­baran Bali ( Jl. Karang Mas Se­jahtera; rim­ba­jim­baran.com; dou­bles from US $210) is as leafy an en­clave as its name (which means “for­est” in In­done­sian) sug­gests. The eight-hectare property, set within the grounds of sis­ter re­sort the Ayana, opens in Septem­ber with 297 el­e­gantly ap­pointed rooms and suites ar­ranged around a shim­mer­ing cen­ter­piece of wa­ter fea­tures and mul­ti­tiered swim­ming pools. On-site at­trac­tions in­clude walk­ing trails, a small spa, an out­post of Can­tonese restau­rant chain Ah-Yat Abalone, and a sleek rooftop bar that af­fords mes­mer­iz­ing views of the In­dian Ocean. For guests wish­ing to stray far­ther afield, the ex­pan­sive fa­cil­i­ties and tha­las­sother­apy pools of the Ayana are just a short buggy ride away, as is a pri­vate beach 197 steps be­low the edge of a lime­stone cliff.
