InterContinental Bali Resort
Travel Blogs from Jimbaran
Been a little lazy blogging bc this is the last of the beach for a while:( 5 days is just not enough for Bali!
We are staying at Jimbaran Bay which is one of the nicer beach resort areas. Our hotel is amazing and has awesome beach lounging areas...for me to tan in! I don't think I can get much darker than I am right now.
The first …
... where I could find Dodol (that rice candy Made shared with us yesterday). They all said "inside," gesturing at the warren of merchants and merchandise. The market was just too time consuming to try to thread my way through, so I decided to just wait on the street corner for the driver. He showed up right on time, and I was whisked right back to the room. Along the way I asked him about himself, and turns out he worked on a cruise ship for 3 years, ...
... crafts n Bali, lots of markets and pretty shops, but most importantly it is home to a MONKEY FOREST! a temple in town with forest surrounds that is FULL of Macaque monkeys who were so cool, the little ones were brilliant, they just look at you as if to say, 'what are you??' quickly followed by 'oh right, you dont have any food, bye then' and they are off! I thought they were so cool! Laura forget that she had mints in the fromt of her bag so she had two climbing on her ...

after staying some day at half outdoor and half indoor hotel, back to Intercon bali feels like home.. the real hotel with great view of the beach and close to jimbaran seaside cafe was great.. always love to come back to intercon Bali.. the service was great.. i forgot the butler name, but he was very helpful to me. I remember i asked for the fruit, they gave some kind of fruits but i asked to change it all to mangosteen and hey, i got it.. :) good job..

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Bali Resort Jimbaran
This hotel was awesome. The accomodations were just terrific. The breakfast buffet was really really good. The staff was very friendly. The property is just lovely! My husband and I had an awesome time. While you're there, do try the seafood restaurants near the pier (just ask for the grilled seafood restaurant street). And BE SURE TO ASK FOR THE BALINESE PRICE!! It's a scam otherwise if you have to pay more than 35,000 Rp for a kg of fish.
Check-in was quick (which tired travellers always appreciate), room was ready upon arrival.
The InterContinental came highly recommended by friends who frequent Bali and I am happy to say that I was not disappointed.
I stayed at the hotel in May and it was fantastic.
Great staff, food and amazing cocktails. Can hontestly say it was the best holiday I've ever had. I have never felt as relaxed as I did there.
Watching the sunsets for the pool, in the cocktail bar or sat on the beach were amazing.
The beach restuarants were fantastic.
Would recommend it to anyone.
Loved the Intercontinental
We went to Intercontinental Bali for our Honeymoon on June 11, 2005 and we loved it!!!!
This place is unique, clean and food is awesome. The restaurants in the Resort are a bit to expensive, but worth to go. We love the breakfasts seeting, selection was great, but the service was unprecedented!! We love this place and people. We strongly recomend to try the food on the beach by the Hotel!!!Price and taste oh!!!! And even now after the tragedy, we LOVE this place even more. Our love goes to people and their families...and we will come back.
Very pleasant but impersonal
Hi, I stayed at the IC in May 2004 and found it to be generally quite pleasant. It is huge with very nice grounds, and has all the bells and whistles of a large, 5-star resort. The only downside is that is it a large resort, so it's full of people and rather impersonal. You feel like just a body there. The best thing about the resort is that it faces due west, so the sunset is great. You can sit in the pool and watch the sun go down.. really cool.
After reading the earlier comments "Grounds are great, but the rooms", we were concerned that we would be disappointed with aging rooms. We decided to pay a little more for Club rooms which we were told were newly refurbished, and we were not disappointed. The rooms were very tastefully fitted out and quite large for standard-sized rooms.
Their slogan is "Suspended between heaven and earth" or something like that -- how fitting. Our trip to Hong Kong / Bali in September 2002 was superb and 10 days at the Bali Intercontinental, fantastic. A home away from home. The grounds, the staff, the beach, the surrounding town -- all perfect. We staked out our favourite haunts for dinner alternating between the local restaurant, just steps away towards the Four Seasons and the fishermen's restaurants on the beach. The resort had so much to offer, each evening the itinery for the following day was left on the bed - an interesting array of activities both within the resort and in the local community. A small problem in our room resulted in a fantastic upgrade to a two room suite.
The Jimbaran Intercontinental is simply one of the finest hotels available in Bali. Upon arriving, we were not asked to go to the check-in desk, but rather escorted to the lounge area of the lobby where the receptionist came to us to fill in the necessary forms. About halfway through we were greeted by a waitress with complimentary cocktails.
