It was in early March when I planned my trip to Bali this year; the sun was up, pa­per­work ready, sun­glasses and beach­wear on point, and I was so ready to con­quer the is­land of the gods. It took less than half an hour from the air­port to Four Sea­sons Re­sort Bali at Jim­baran Bay, my home away from home for the next two nights. The mo­ment I stepped my feet into the lobby when I ar­rived at the re­sort, I feel an im­me­di­ate calm and re­laxed feel­ings, it surely has some tran­quil and peace­ful­ness charms in it. In­spired by the lay­out of a Ba­li­nese vil­lage, the ac­com­mo­da­tions at this award-win­ning re­sort comes in seven dis­tinct ‘vil­lages,’ all with cus­tom­ary Vil­lage Chiefs. The team at The Four Sea­sons es­corted me to the fully-ren­o­vated Pre­mier Ocean Vil­las in no time. The view from my villa eas­ily took my breath away, the vast turquoise ocean and clear blue sky greeted these city-guy eyes of mine. The mod­ern trop­i­cal de­sign of the villa re­flects the grace and beauty of Ba­li­nese ar­chi­tec­ture, the spa­cious bed­room opens onto the pool and sep­a­rate out­door liv­ing Bale, while an al fresco shower gar­den com­ple­ments the el­e­gant, stylish bath­room with vin­tage bath­tub which I love so much. There are in total 156 pool vil­las at the re­sort; all housed within a pri­vate stone-walled court­yard fea­tur­ing sep­a­rate thatched-roof pavil­ions. Each villa in­cludes over­sized in­door and out­door liv­ing ar­eas, lush gar­dens, a pri­vate pool and a sun ter­race.
