My husband and I absolutely loved every single moment of our stay at this wonderful resort. Everything about it was simply magical. From the minute we arrived until the minute we departed, we felt that it was our home and the staff members at the resort our family. We have traveled to many destinations around the world but Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay truly stands out from anything we have ever experienced. If you ever wondered what a 5 star service TRULY means, you must visit this resort. The service here was amazing and top notch without any exception. Every single staff member you encounter would treat you as their best guest ever, trying to help you, guide you and ensure that you have the most memorable visit not only to their resort but to the entire island of Bali. I was blown away but how attentive, friendly and caring everyone was. We stayed for 4 nights (though how I wish that we would have stayed longer!) and spent a lot of time exploring the resort and meeting everyone who worked there. Sweet people who radiate happiness at everything they do. You feel welcomed and well cared for during your entire stay. Every single request is fulfilled with a great smile and a light heart, you want to hug everyone you meet their because they are so friendly and sincere.
Our villa was a Deluxe Ocean View Villa - wow! I was speechless when I walked through the villa's front gate leading to the outdoor pavilion, plunge pool and sleeping quarters. Amazing! I carefully studied resort's website before making a booking and thought I knew what to expect. But the minute I saw our villa I just melted! I stood there breathless. I felt like being transported to a magical village with thatched-roof villas and spectacular view of the ocean. Everything was perfect. There are usually pros and cons and room for improvement, but not at this resort. Perfection in everything. There were days and nights when my husband and I did not even want to leave our magical villa. Whoever was the architect of this resort, he is a genius. The resort is quite big with many free standing villas, yet each villa is built in a way that offers complete privacy. Little pathways leading to each villa bring mystery and suspense each time you walk around the resort. Did I already mention Amazing?!?
And then the restaurants with yummy food and superb service! One day we decided to have a lunch at PG's by the beach. I ordered soup that arrived quite spicy for my taste. I decided to give it a try but a careful observation of our waiter ensured that he immediately returned back to our table to inquire if I truly enjoyed my soup. I said it was too spicy. He invited me to choose another item from the menu, I chose salad, which was delicious. After lunch was finished, the manager of PG's came to our table to apologize that soup was not to my likening. And even though I said I loved my second choice of salad and everything was fine and we were happy, he insisted to treat us with delicious ice cream. The entire experience with a big smile and sincere attempt to ensure we are happy, not hungry, and completely satisfied.
Breakfast a la carte was out of this world! Plentiful and delicious. We opted to eat one morning in our villa and the entire experience was great, everything was set-up so thoughtfully. I initially thought about purchasing just a room without breakfast included, but last minute changed my mind and decided to purchase bed + breakfast package, which was a smart decision. Ordering from breakfast menu could easily add up if you want to order tea/coffee, juice, fruits + breakfast, so in my calculations, you would save much more money by pre-purchasing breakfast package in advance. There is no limit how many items you can order off a la carte menu, so it makes sense to go this route unless you are the type of person who usually skips breakfasts or eats light in the morning. One thing to consider, there is always a tray of chef’s morning specials served complimentary each morning. There are usually 5 various items on that tray – very delicious.
There is a nice resort beach with attentive service (plus two different swimming pools on the property, one is a quiet swimming pool to relax and another one with a beautiful waterfall and a Jacuzzi.) A short walk from the resort along the beach (literally less than 4 minutes of walking) you would come to an area of Jimbaran fish restaurants – many, many restaurants with tables right on the beach with waves almost touching your toes, serving delicious fish, soups, crabs, lobsters, etc and the prices are inexpensive. They get quite busy each evening right before sunset but usually there was no problem to get a table because there are so many restaurants to choose from.
We didn’t have an opportunity to try Four Seasons Spa, though we heard only amazing things about their services. We tried Bamboo Spa instead, which was about 15 minute walk from the resort.
To summarize, I would highly recommend Four Seasons Jimbaran resort. It is a prefect getaway for romantic couples, friends or families. We also stayed at St. Regis resort for few days in Nusa Dua at the end of our trip, and both my husband and I enjoyed Four Seasons resort much better. If you don’t have an opportunity to stay at both resorts and only choosing between either Four Seasons Jimbaran or St. Regis in Nusa Dua, I would recommend Four Seasons Jimbaran for sure. While service is top notch at both resorts and both properties felt truly luxurious and amazing, St. Regis is located in an area where you would never even understand that you are in Bali. St. Regis is located right in the middle of SUPER touristy area with mostly Russian and Japanese tourists and the entire area just doesn’t really feel authentic or even remotely Balinese. All restaurants serve mostly “international” cuisine and plays music of Eric Clapton, Britney Spears and Celine Dion (I am not exaggerating here.) Even though I liked St. Regis service, I absolutely hated their location. So if you are choosing between the two, stay at Four Seasons Jimbaran, you won’t be disappointed.
