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 …
Monday, March 25th:
We have a 2pm flight from Dili to Bali on Merpati Airlines (we had previously booked a flight on Batavia Air, but they went bankrupt a few weeks before, which is something we luckily found out beforehand purely by accident, when Jen tried to arrange a car pick up and was told, there is not Batavia Air flight from East …
Wir gönnen uns nochmal eine Massage im Hotel Spa (Interconti Signature...sehr zu empfehlen) und genießen sonst den Strand und die tolle Hotelanlage.
Zum Bali-Ausklang laufen wir dann abends wieder am Strand entlang zu den vielen kleinen Fischlokalen, die Jimbaran Beach ausmachen.
Mit den Füßen …
Nach 3 Nächten müssen wir dem Spa Village "auf Wiedersehen" sagen. Dafür treffen wir wieder Made Kasa, unseren Fahrer beim ersten Bali-Trip, der heute mit uns unterwegs sein wird.
Wir stoppen zuerst in Kubutambahan am Pura Meduwe Karang, wo wir erstmal, trotz Made Kasa, schön balinesisch "abgezockt" werden, aber gut, soviel Touristen …
A great day.
Woke to pouring rain, docked at the port in Bali. The clouds looked thick and I worried that our touring would be difficult it the rain continued. Breakfast in the Terrace Cafe then waited... and waited to disembark. By the time we got off the ship, the rain had stopped and the sun was shining. As usual, I took the back row …
How has this resort rated in the past?
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.
