The resort is in the southern part of Jimbaran, a quiet tourist region not far south of the airport.

Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay – Tranquillity, opulence, and seclusion – and the finest views in Jimbaran.

Cascading down an extensive hillside facing the sea and among ornate tropical gardens, this resort offers a range of villas with up to four bedrooms. Each villa is secluded, spacious, and sumptuous, with a subtle Balinese décor, stunning bathroom, and abundant windows maximizing views of Jimbaran Bay – incredibly wonderful at night with candlelit tables on the sand. Every villa also features a private pool with a gazebo, and the main infinity pool seems to blend seamlessly into the horizon. The Jimba Kids Club offers an impressive range of activities for the young ones and the whole family. There is no beach directly in front, but guests can easily walk (or get transported by cart) to the immaculate private beach club and all the seafood cafés set up on the sand for yet another magical sunset.

  • Area: Between the cliffs and steepish road, so no beach directly in front, but only a short stroll down to the sea and beachside cafés and bars.

Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay – The Basics

  • Guests: Caters well for all but with the exquisite setting and lofty rates, many guests seem to be couples over 40.
  • Kids Club: The Jimba Kids Club offers an impressive range of activities, such as coconut bowling and crab hunting. Supervised for ages four to 12.
  • Beach: The beach at Jimbaran is one of Bali’s finest: curved with calm waters and white sand, and not nearly as crowded as Kuta and Seminyak. Only five minutes on foot (less by resort cart), the private Coconut Grove beach club is also superb with its shady trees and abundant water-sports.
  • Views: The views of the sea and Jimbaran Bay from the villas are partially obstructed by other villas. Views are even more extraordinary at night as hundreds of tables are spread along the beach with twinkling candles.

  • How to Book: will have the best rates.

Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay – Local Transport

  • Walking & Cycling: With flat roads and less traffic than other regions, walking around Jimbaran is pleasant – and often quicker via the beach than the road. Cycling is also easy, but the road immediately outside the resort gates is steep. Ask at the hotel about bike rentals.
  • Cars & Taxis: A few taxis can be found along the main road in central Jimbaran and are a cheap and comfortable way to reach anywhere in southern Bali. A popular mode of transport is a motorbike taxi called an ojek for a set fare. Book through downloadable apps Grab and Gojek, but drivers may not come out this far. For longer distances, charter a car with a driver. Driving a car is not recommended anywhere in Bali, but rental is possible at a local agency. Organize all transport options at the resort.
  • Motorbikes: These are useful for getting around Jimbaran; ask at the hotel about renting one through a local agency.

Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars
