Highlight: Boutique luxury
Belmond Jimbaran Puri is an idyllic luxury hotel and one of the best beach resorts in Bali – perfect for those looking to relax, unwind and enjoy island paradise in peace and privacy.
Right on the shorefront of Jimbaran Bay, one of Bali’s best beaches, Jimbaran Puri is home to talcum-soft white sands, crimson sunsets and tropical birdsong. With a reputation as one of the most serene Bali hotels a typical day in paradise could involve enjoying a massage by the sea, followed by a gentle swim in its calm waters, before stretching out in your garden, inhaling the heady aroma of frangipani flowers as you wait for the scent of grilling fish to entice you to dinner. This really is the place to be if you’re looking for ultimate tranquility and simply to soak in your surroundings in exquisite luxury.
Pool villas and luxury cottages with cool marble floors, sumptuous teak woods and high-beamed ceilings offer breathtaking beach and garden views, creating a lush romantic sanctuary and the dining options at Jimbaran include some of the top Bali restaurants, combining Indonesian and Western elements. You can eat right by the moonlit ocean as chefs cook fresh seafood in aromatic Asian herbs and spices with dances and music every night.
And if you are able to prize yourself from one of the best luxury resorts in Bali (we did say if) Jimbaran Puri is a great base for an Indonesian adventure. Enter swirling night markets scented with lemongrass and galangal, or delve into the island’s Hindu identity with a temple visit, gourmet cooking class or artisanal tour.

Best food & drink
1. Fresh fish on the beach
The most exceptional views are found at Nelayan Restaurant. Dine on the Jimbaran sands as a postcardworthy sunset makes its curtain call on the horizon. The range of fish here is as exceptionally broad as it is fresh. Championing organic ingredients gathered nearby – coconut, lemongrass – the menu marries Mediterranean technique with piquant local spices.
2. Bebek betutu
Traditional Balinese dish, slow roasted duck leg marinated with 16 local spices wrapped in banana leaf served with steamed rice, sayur urap & condiments.
3. Dadar gulung
Balinese style grated coconut & palm sugar rolled in “Pandan” crepes ripe jackfruit, palm sugar sauce, coconut pandan ice cream.
With Bali’s best beach in front of you and tropical lush jungle inland it would take some pretty outstanding cuisine to upstage your breathtaking surroundings – but food in Bali does just that, and the first thing you’ll want to do is to sample the array of incredible food and drink at each of Jimbaran Puri’s main restaurants and its oriental-style Puri Bar; one of the most picturesque bars in Bali and the best place to toast the sunset.
You can also take a trip to the local market, bursting with fragrant herbs and fiery spices, then return to the hotel where Jimbaran Puri chefs will transform them into a mouth-watering lunch.
Indonesia’s numbers alone paint a picture of diversity and drama. Across 13,000 islands, 300 languages dance between tongues. Its ecosystems span from Sumatra’s abundant rainforests, across the Coral Triangle to the equatorial mountains of Papua. It’s a region where the rich cultures, communities and customs are as diverse as the sights, foods and awesome landscapes, and Jimbaran Puri is a perfect base if you’re looking for adventure.
Immerse yourself in the east’s striking volcanoes and dense jungle. Visit Tenganan village––famous for its batik prints––before bathing in Tirta Gangga’s healing waters. Or head west to discover rural life in the emerald rice paddies. Pura Bratan, a towering water temple on the shores of Lake Beratan, will take your breath away.
Visit the beautiful luxury beach spa and discover the ancient benefits of Ayurvedic herbal massage. Begin with a rhythmic ‘four hands’ Abhyanga ritual. Then calm the mind and nourish hair and scalp with a restorative Shirodhara oil-based head massage.
Or learn the techniques of Balinese massage, combining traditional muscle-soothing techniques with native traditions and Indonesian botanicals, this experience helps you master the basics of massage. From simple stretching to a back, neck and shoulder massage, Jimbaran Puri’s therapists will impart the power of the healing touch.
Then return to the lapping of the waves in the bay, the gentle breeze, the aroma of frangipani and jasmine, and feel your stress just drift away.
