Ayana Resort & Spa
Stylish icon built on limestone cliffs, surrounded by tropical gardens
Having arrived in Denpasar, the largest city of the Indonesian island, the hotel limousine was already waiting for us and after 25 minutes, the general manager welcomed us to the grandiose AYANA Resort and Spa Bali on the southwestern coast.
Built on limestone cliffs, the stylish resort scores with a breathtaking location above the sea and a spectacular view of the bay of the picturesque fishing village of Jimbaran. The terraced resort with its tropical gardens, Balinese stone sculptures, magnificent pools and exquisite furnishings exudes true elegance and noble grandeur.
Our One Bedroom Ocean Front Cliff Pool Villa number 3003 is a true dream residence with lush gardens, private pool and spectacular views. This villa must be on your bucket list. Check out the photos in the slideshow as well. You will be amazed. Of course, among the nearly 300 accommodations there are also elegant double rooms and luxurious suites, which are also furnished with Balinese artwork. However, I recommend you to book a pool villa in a dreamlike, natural environment with private ambience and breathtaking panoramic view.
As far as the varied cuisine is concerned, there are no limits to your fine palate. The resort offers Mexican, Balinese, Mediterranean, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Asian, international cuisine in the individual restaurants. I recommend dinner at the specialty Dava restaurant as well as an extravagant, romantic, private dinner in a gazebo with traditional music accompaniment and Balinese dancing.
A must-do is a sunset visit to the dramatic Rock Bar. This spectacular bar sits 14 meters above the roaring waves of the Indian Ocean on a striking limestone formation where the waves break sonorously. The way there leads either laboriously over countless stairs or stylishly in the in-house rack railroad.
The magnificent wellness and spa area makes the heart of every luxury wellness lover beat faster. An absolute dream comes true at the AYANA Resort & Spa. Rest and relaxation for mind, body and soul is pre-programmed! The Spa on the Rocks offers a special experience. Convince yourself and let yourself be enchanted by a Balinese massage.
The dreamlike pool landscape – as you could already see – offers three pools (a main pool, a love pool and a children’s pool). Just dive in and enjoy!
At the Kuba Beach, a private beach section, we finally still dangled the soul, before we tested further luxury hotels. Unfortunately, there was not enough time for golf, tennis or other sports activities this time.
