Jimbaran, Bali

Located in southern Bali, this tiny fishing village is home to a strong sense of community and an idyllic crescent beach.

While this has resulted in Jimbaran Bay becoming a bit of a hotspot in recent years, we’re happy to say that a gentle pace and local touches still run strong throughout its veins. Also, in comparison to neighbouring beaches that attract partygoers from far and wide, this exclusive sweeping bay is relaxed and upmarket. Thanks to its exclusive feel, a handful of beautiful luxury hotels and high-end villas have sprung up along the shore recently - to such a degree that some even refer to it as the ‘Beverly Hills of Bali’ (but fear not, Jimbaran is far from overcrowded!).

Embrace Jimbaran’s tropical setting by relaxing on its soft golden sand and enjoying its calm sea, which makes for the perfect swimming conditions: a surprising rarity in Bali. We recommend rising early to watch the local fishermen reeling in their catch of the day and visiting the bustling fish market during your stay to get a taste of local Indonesian life. Another highlight of this bay is dining at the seafood stalls that line the beach; as you walk past their mouth-watering aromas billowing into the air around you, we guarantee you won’t be able to resist tasting the perfectly grilled fresh fish.

Also, you can gain other insights into local culture here, from visiting the renowned Uluwatu Temple and taking a guided ‘arts and crafts’ walk, to watching a traditional Balinese dance performance and admiring an authentic crafts shop. If you are after a buzzier atmosphere in the evening, the nightspots of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak are just a 30 minute taxi ride away.

In our opinion, the sleek Belmond Jimbaran Puri and the luxurious Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay are the places to stay here. Both provide spectacular locations and an array of indulgent amenities to ensure that your stay in this piece of paradise is as spoiling and memorable as possible.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
