Raffles Hotels And Resorts recently celebrated the smooth opening of its 15th Hotel in the world, Raffles Bali. Located less than half an hour by private limousine from Ngurah Rai International Airport, Raffles Bali is the brand’s first location for Indonesia’s favorite vacation destination.
Set in the crowded streets of Jimbaran, the luxurious property offers 32 private pool villas, complete with plush Batie rugs, a king-size bed, rustic rattan furniture and stunning views of the Indian Ocean and the sunsets of Jimbaran Bay. Rooms also feature indoor and outdoor showers, yoga mats, beach accessories, and bathtubs.
“Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or an devoted oasis of emotional wellness, Raffles Bali offers unparalleled panoramic sea views and mesmerizing sunsets from every Villa,” says Katya Herting, Managing director of Raffles Bali.
“Our resort is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and offers maximum relaxation due to its generosity.”
Dining options at the resort include Loloan Beach Bar and Grill, a casual beachfront and poolside restaurant specializing in seafood, and Rumari, a romantic restaurant that serves Balinese dishes on a large terrace overlooking the ocean from the hotel’s highest point.
devoted dining experiences can be arranged either at the Secret Cave with lighted torches and candles, or at the Purnama Honeymoon Bale – a private space built on the rocks by the resort’s sea.
Other highlights include the brand’s legendary Writers Bar and adjacent library, where guests can enjoy Cocktails, a glass of champagne or the hotel’s Raffles Bali Sling, a new update of the famous Singaporean original.
