ONLY IN INDONESIA
Do it all at AYANA Resort and Spa.
BALI, INDONESIA, HAS AN ENERGIZING appeal, an exotic vibe exuding culture and tactfully infused with hedonistic energy. Savoring the island’s serene charm with an indulgent retreat to the AYANA Resort and Spa is the perfect antidote for the restless soul. The snazzy former Ritz Carlton property is set on the southwestern coast, attracting savvy travelers that appreciate a refuge from chain hotel accommodations. This is a true oasis of class, brimming with a perfect balance of timeless style and upscale luxury.
Chic and artsy while maintaining its Indonesian roots, the property exhibits all the classic characteristics one would expect. Strategically positioned on cliff- top land overlooking Jimbaran Bay, the property features resplendent Balinese architecture framed by lush landscaping with palms swaying to the beat of Indian Ocean waves. Seventy- eight private pool villas and 290 oversized rooms and suites are graced with ultra-lavish furnishings.
Integrated with the neighboring RIMBA Jimbaran Bali Resort by AYANA, guests enjoy full access to the dining and recreation facilities of both properties. This alliance provides 19 restaurants and bars, 12 swimming pools, a private white-sand beach club, golf putting, a fitness center, and the highly acclaimed Thermes Marins Spa. Spas may be synonymous with Bali, but this haven of rejuvenation is the island’s centerpiece trophy. While the resort’s abundance of facilities suggests grandiose scale, the design of the property curiously exudes the aura of a personal sanctuary.
In between daily reconnaissance of exquisitely designed pools, a mélange of dining options is available for inquisitive appetites. Choose from Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Mediterranean, and Indonesian dishes featuring meat, vegetarian, and seafood selections, as well as quick- bite comfort foods complemented by healthy-living menus.
As daytime decompression fades towards dusk, the famed Rock Bar, perched on a cliff over the ocean waves, attracts fervent sunset worshippers for cocktails before morphing into a vibrant night music venue under the Indonesian stars.
The inspiring spirit of the AYANA Resort and Spa embraces the natural environment of the island and celebrates the implicit culture of a zen-like destination. It may take arduous travel planning to get here, but once you experience its aura, it’s even harder to leave. ayana.com
