“Great Christmas Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

We stayed here for 10 days over Christmas and had a really nice, relaxing stay. We booked an ocean view villa which had huge amount of space and private pool. The highlight for me was the breakfast each morning. The restaurant has beautiful views of the ocean and Bali coastline and we spent probably a couple of hours each morning trying the various breakfast options. The service was always first class and you can order variety of juices which would be brought freshly made. I really can't fault this hotel but one negative I did have was some of the guests were behaving quite loud by the pool area which can be annoying when you just want to sit in peace.

We arrived in Bali to celebrate our 40th Wedding anniversary. This was our 4th trip to the hotel and selected it because we have always thought it was a very special place. They could not have been nicer to us. The new manager of the resort, Ilkin was incredible to us. I did not want a villa on the top level so they suggested that I look at 2 other villas that might be more suitable. They drove me around with the buggy and I selected a lovely room located close to the Library where they offer free internet. (why can't these expensive first class hotels include internet - an oft repeated complaint- it seems so nickel dimey!). Anyhow, the villa was fine and I went back to the stunning lobby to get my husband. Ilkin wanted to do something special for us since it was a celebration for us. So, he said that the next day he would move us to a 2 bedroom villa. I said it was unnecessary but he INSISTED! And so the next day they moved us to the MOST fabulous 2 bedroom villa with a HUGE outdoor living room, warm and private plunge pool and perfect ocean views. We never wanted to leave - and so we hardly did over the next 2 days where we luxuriated in our version of paradise!
We did go on a great bike ride with a guide (No charge) and saw wonderful views from atop a cliff. The spa was wonderful, terrific treatments. The gym was staffed and the attendant continually brought us cool wet towels to cool us down. Food was good, not great. They are redoing the beach pizza restaruant which should be super when it is complete.
All in all, it wa a wonderful way to start our celebration trip and we appreciated the Balinese hospitality which is second to none!

Room Tip: Nice to be closer to the ocean and villas are the best!

We spent 10 days at the lovely Four Seasons in Jimbaran Bay, including New Year's Eve. The hotel is fabulous, from the rooms to the service. Despite being a large resort, the rooms (we had a pool villa with ocean view) are secluded and peaceful. The New Years Eve events were impressive, much more than we expected, with a fabulous array of lobsters, champagne, fireworks and even a live band. The spa and gym were impeccable and bigger than we have seen in other resorts around the island. Michael, the GM, greeted us personally and catered to every request with a turnaround unexpected for an island like Bali. Although we rented a car for the period, we barely made it off the resort, preferring the peace and tranquility of the hotel, which is very unlike us. Our five year old daughter adored the kids club, where she came back with braided hair, tattoos, homemade cookies....she even took a dance class. She preferred spending the days at the Kids Club rather than leaving the resort. We had a great time, came back feeling refreshed and relaxed. We will certainly visit the Four Seasons at Jimbaran Bay again.

We stayed in Four Seasons Bali the first two nights during our stay in Bali due to its villa style rooms. We had anticipated great accomodations.. however.. hmm..
As usual for a Four Seasons hotel, the staff was helpful during check in, and procedure was fast. You needed a buggy ride to get into your villa as the place can be quite big. After the buggy driver drove you to your villa, a butler would be waiting there, and explaining all the different facilities of the room to you. However, i had failed to checked on some of the things in my room, and it wasn't until the next morning that i had realized it..
The bathroom was huge, and i loved the bathtub and they provided your with bath salts, and incense. They also provided a CD with Balinese traditional music, so it was really really nice while laying in the bathtub.
However, due to the rainy season, the bedsheets were extremely wet, and throughout the night, i had to fight with mosquitoes... I also couldn't use the private pool due to the rain, and the seats outside would be all wet. There was also a gazebo right outside your room.. which was nice.. but a lot of the lightbulbs needs to be changed ,or else you couldn't use it at night... something i expected they would do before we went into the room?
Another thing that happened was that the phones were all broken in my villa. Since you needed the buggy to travel to and fro.. not having a phone was... like being stranded. When i reported to the lobby, the did give me a cell phone, however reception can be quite horrendous and most of the time, i find myself shouting into the phone..which can really dampen your mood.
As for the breakfast, and dinner in the resort, i would say that i prefer the breakfast. There was a set menu which a selection of western, country, Japanese, Korean, and Indonesian style breakfast. The restaurant has a great view of the sea, and absolutely wonderful. They also had fresh juice everyday, and absolutely delicious.
WIFI was not free here.. but the speed was fast. I also tried the spa, and the oil massage was nice.
I would stay in the villa the next time......but not during the rainy season, and i do hope that they do get all those things repaired......

Stayed here in July with wife and six year old daughter. we had a one bedroom ocean villa. (All villas come with a pool.) With Balinese architecture the villas were very different to villas anywhere in the world. On top of that it was huge. The beds with mosquito nets were the most comfortable I have slept in any hotels in the world.The huge resort is beautifully landscaped from the beach to the hill top with a infinity pool and a Balinese Temple on the grounds. The golf buggy is needed to move about in the resort. The staff is not only very efficient but also very courteous. The day of departure we were given picnic hampers for breakfast as had early morning flight to catch. Had dinner at the restaurant next to the beach which was very nice. Wife tried the spa and was raving about it. Daughter spent half the day in the activity area and was not willing to leave it. The beach also is very friendly and provides easy access to the ocean. The highlight of the stay is definitely the view especially when the sun is setting with different lights, Volcano peaks in the background, aircraft's landing and the ocean in the foreground. In short nothing short of paradise.

Room Tip: All are ocean facing.

This is the second time we stayed in FS Jimbaran Bay, we came back because we loved it so much last time (2 years ago when our daugher was only 5-months old). This time we stayed for 10 nights, and again we are convinced that this is the place to come if you run out of places to go and want to totally relax and enjoy life.

1. Food - very good. They have a good Italian chef, we had Christmas and New Year dinners in the resort, didn't have much expectation but were totally surprised and satisfied! The breakfast was huge, don't think anyone can finish it all, at the end we had to tell them not to bring the bread basket coz we didn't want to see the food wasted.

2. Service - superb. The staff knew what you want before you did, and they went all the way to give you the best service. By the 2nd day we arrived, everyone in the restaurant called us by our names. They always prepred the fish food for our daughter to feed the fish in the pond. And, seeing our daughter finished all the Long-an (fruit) in the breakfast fruit plate one day, they brought a full plate of Long-ans for her the next morning!

3. Spa - superb. Honestly the room was not that impressive but the massage was top rated! Must try.

One more experience to share - one day it was pouring rain. All of sudden lightening struck the resort and sounded like the thunder just exploded over our heads. The next second we knew, all the electricity and phone lines in the whole resort went out. But no panics, no chaos, the staffs gradually came out and check each villa and gave out mobile phones so that we could keep the communication open, etc. Electricity was restored by the end of the day and phone line the next day, nothing was really affected. Can't imagine what the drama would be if we stayed in a resort with less experienced staffs.

This resort, situated in Jimbaran Bay is a hidden gem. We visited in October 2011 after a 7 day cruise down from Singapore and we thought that would be the highlight of our short break, but this resort was definitely the highlight of it all. We had a One-Bedroom Ocean View Villa. A definite room recommendation. The villas are private and serene, with your own outdoor dining/living room area and cooling plunge pool, after baking in the hot sun. We had a gorgeous view of Jimbaran Bay, overlooking more foliage and villas. The villas definitely had a traditional Balinese feel to the atmosphere, with it's thatched roofs, Balinese decor and local arts and handicrafts scattered around the room. Both the bedroom and bathroom were oversized and spacious. The service was spot on and the quality of the food was to die for. The spa in the FS is incredible. You could get all kinds of treatments from a local body scrub to a Balinese massage, which I had, and I never wanted it to finish. The oversized plunge pool is a definite hangout in the mid-afternoon with a fresh young coconut and is the meaning of relaxation. The resort is only 15 minutes from the international airport and I would recommend this resort for your next trip to Bali. This was an expensive stay but was definitely worth the money.
