Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay
Travel Blogs from Jimbaran
Waking, I immediately felt better, this was more like it! I got up and packed as I hadn't been able to last night, and even made it down for breakfast with the others. We were checking out today, and sadly the Dysentery Express was splitting up for a little while. Mandy and Tracy had arranged a bit of luxury to end their trip on, the Four Seasons …
SAT OCT 17:
Worked out at a great health club at the Fairmont this morning…then went to china town for dim sum lunch….today is DIWALI (or ddepahwali)…Hindu festival of lights….so peacock feathers and candles everywhere. GREAT lunch with super COLD TIGER BEER!!!

... bed is wider than it is long, we have a large tub AND an open-air shower in the double-sink, marble-tiled bathroom, and our room overlooks the 2 matching cool blue pools below. Graceful palm trees bend gently in the breeze, giant snails inch their way along the paths, and yellow and green birds flit from bush to tree, calling out to each other. This is paradise.
It is strange, though, what makes this a paradise. ...
Sorry it's been so long but so busy at the moment and all this diving takes it out of you, so I've been here two weeks now and I'm beginning to settle in nicely, days are early to start with a roll call at 6:30am every morning, and then most days we sort out our kit and head to the mini busses to head of to the various dive sites, I've been at least once to all the major ones. The most obvious place to start ...
... streak rather spectacularly by having our last snack at the Dunkin Donuts at the airport before leaving. I am entirely aggravated that Dunkin Donuts has a presence in Bali, but not in California, and will be writing to my congressional representative as soon as I return.
Second, there are cats inside the terminal. Well, one cat, anyhow. I wonder how it got through the security line without a passport and boarding ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay
Stayed in a villa overlooking the sea.
The villa had a wonder bathroom with an outdoor shower.
The villa is very big with an outside sheltered area.
It also has a deep plunge pool to relax in.
The breakfast menu was fantastic.
The food at the restaurant was ok.
Don't expect much from the beach which seemed to have oily patches.
The spa was excellent.
The main attraction is the villa which is much nicer than the Banyan Tree in Phuket and Bintan.
I just returned from a 17 day trip to the Four Seasons Resorts in Langkawi, Sayand and Jimbaran Bay. Overall, FS Jimbaran Bay is a wonderful place with incredible landscaping, a great view and impeccable service.
Worth every penny and every minute spent in an airline seat to get there (35+ hours door-to-door from SF).
Perfect Place to Stay
We stayed here for 5 days after getting married on the Island, and it was definately the most amazing place. The staff were fantastic, the privacy is perfect. We ate in the room most nights, can be fairly expensive, but worth it. We wandered down to the beach and ate there 1 night (had a 1KG lobster!) amazing. Overall - definately worth it, we are currently planning on going back there this year. Not sure what the previous comment was about with bugs, we had none - maybe they need to wash more!
Somehow the Four Seasons management and staff have brought the art of running this hotel to perfection. Just everything here feels right - the warm welcome at arrival, the beautiful landscaping of the place, the large, nicely decorated and well maintained rooms, the personal welcome you get in any of the restaurants, and so on. Many other hotels with five stars behind their name don't even come close to the standards of this place. I think this resort will fulfill the needs of even the most demanding traveler. Our impression though was that the hotel is not only a place for the well-to-do, but also popular among honeymooners like us - not too demanding, but very much appreciating this paradise-like resort.
Dissapointed Not Number one in My Book
We arrived here from the Four Seasons Sayan (which was wonderful) and were very disappointed.
We found the bungalows too close together .
Our biggest criticism however was that we had travelled 18 hours too find that our room had the best view of theairport!!Planes were constantly flying in and out.
This was not what we expected from the Conde Neste Voted Number One resort in Asia.
We have just returned from our vacation in Four Seasons in Jimbaran, and although we have already seen a number of hotels with a label "luxury hotels" it was definitely the best experience we have had. The hotel gardens are sinking in flowers, green but all made to look natural as if it was created by the nature this way. The villas offer as much privacy as one could only dream. Hidden in the lush gardens each villa overlooks the ocean and offers your own pool, an outdoor living room, a beautiful bedroom with a huge bathroom and a traditional outdorr bamboo shower in a "secret garden." Although I have already heard a lot of the superior service characteristic of Asia, I was still impressed by this non-bothering attention every guest receives at the FS. With over 150 villas at the resort any staff member addresses each guest by his/her name! We can highly recommend this hide away for those looking for intimacy and romance!
Went to Bali on our honeymoon. Unbelievably beautiful hotel. The layout of the villas and intricate attention to detail is mind blowing. The service is fit for a Queen. I would highly recommend it to people who are not concerned about the price they are paying for the experience. The beach was really ugly but i didn't really think of it as part of the hotel. There are other beaches in the area you can easily get to.
We also stayed at Hyatt in Nusa Dua which was also amazing and great value for money for travellers on a more moderate budget.
Best Hotel in the World! The hotel is great, the beach is ugly, but you dont need the beach. Your private pool saves you. Great for Honeymooners!
Save your money or go to Sayan
This hotel was nice but not worth the money. We stayed here after staying at 4 Seasons Sayan. It just doesn't compare. The beach was not that great. Lot's of bugs flying around our plunge pool. We didnt have this problem in the jungle at Sayan so not quite sure what the deal was here. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt also (twice). We loved it there. Lots cheaper, great food, room right on the beach.
