Jimbaran Puri – Hidden gem with perfect tropical-style beach, pool, and villas.
This gorgeous boutique resort faces a magnificent stretch of powder-white sand and beautifully marries the traditional (e.g., thatched roof) with the new (e.g., private pools). Among the manicured gardens are spacious cottages with teak furniture, a sunken bathtub, and marble floors. Elsewhere are secluded villas (with one or two bedrooms) featuring a substantial private pool and a private butler. Adding further to the charm and tropical holiday vibe are the boutique, library, and shimmering infinity pool alongside the beach, lined with cabanas and angled palms. The resort is serenely located 300m from the main road in a quieter part of Jimbaran and only a short stroll to the seafood cafés that set up tables on the sand for the majestic sunsets.

Jimbaran Puri – Local Transport
- Walking & Cycling: With flat roads and less traffic than most other regions, walking around Jimbaran is pleasant – and often quicker via the beach than the road. Ask at the resort about bike rentals.
- Cars & Taxis: A few taxis ply the main road in central Jimbaran and are a cheap and comfortable way to reach anywhere in southern Bali. For longer distances, charter a car with a driver. Driving a car is not recommended anywhere in Bali, but a rental is possible at a local agency. Organize these transport options at the resort.
- Motorbikes: These are useful for getting around Jimbaran. Ask the hotel about renting one through a local agency. A popular mode of transport is a motorbike taxi called an ojek. Find one on the street for a negotiable fare or book one at a fixed rate using the downloadable apps Grab and Gojek.

Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars
More than a dozen seafood cafés are clustered at the end of Jalan Pemelisan Agung Street, about 300m north of the resort via the beach. Often with wandering musicians, fireworks, and traditional dances, dinner on the sand during sunset will be a highlight of any trip to Bali. Most cafes are open all day. Menus overwhelmingly focus on seafood, but other meals are available.
Otherwise, there isn’t a lot in this part of Jimbaran, but these two options are excellent:
- Kayumanis Resto – Barely a two-minute walk from the street entrance to the resort. Contemporary Indonesian cuisine and seafood in a beautiful traditional setting. Tables on the lawn.
- The Open House Bali – Cute café offers hearty servings of Indonesian food, salads, sandwiches, cocktails, and coffee. Welcoming garden setting. About 200m north along the beach and then 100m east along the first street (Jalan Pemelisan Agung).

- Samasta Lifestyle Village — Popular outdoor mall with boutiques and souvenir shops, some tempting eateries, and the Timezone games arcade. Take a taxi (seven minutes).
- Sunset Dinner on the Beach — A highlight of any trip to Bali is dinner at sunset on the sand in Jimbaran. With wandering musicians, fireworks, and traditional dances, this should not be missed.
