Ranked #22 of 62 Hotels in Jimbaran
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 20, 2013

My wife, 2 year old son and I stayed a week at RBBC Jimbaran. We had a room on the 2nd floor, the balcony was facing the main road but there were little noise filtering through with all the doors and windows shut. The place is not new, but has been well maintained. Service is very welcoming from all the staff, reception have been helpful whenever we seeked help to plan our day's activities.

The pool was smallish, but my son and I were the only ones in the water whenever we swam.

Location wise, it is directly opposite the Intercontinental, which you would have to go through to get to Jimbaran Bay beach. No problems with the security guys at the Intercontinental gate. The seafood restaurants are there once you hit the beach, to the left (just beside intercontinental) and to the right (further 10 min walk from intercontinental).

Exiting RBBC to the right, on the same side of the road, you would find massage places and mini marts, further down you would find Balique restaurant.

Exiting RBBC to the left, on the opposite side of the road, about 10-15 min walk would be Jimbaran corner, a collection of shops and eating places including grocer & grind.

You could also visit Villa Balquisse which the parking area is sharing the same entrance as RBBC, turn right and without needing to exit to the main road, walk through the carpark and
you would reach Asam Garam restaurant. We had breakfast there a few times, love their bread basket.

If you need more stuff than the mini-marts can provide, a 5 min taxi ride can take you to the Nirmala supermarket.

In all, a quiet area, good base to relax but still within easy reach of all that Bali can offer.

My wife and I stayed at the resort for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed nearly every minute there. Unforturnately I fell ill during the second week, but that had nothing to do with the resort. We love the staff there and all the facilities.We enjoyed the Balinese dancing on the first Sunday night and it was the best show I have seen at Royal in all the years I have been going to their resorts in Bali. The restaurant makes the best Rendang in Bali and the other food is equally as good. Spent quite a bit of time in the restaurant while we were there.We'll be back sometime in the future and thoroughly recommend this resort to everyone.

Room Tip: We had an apartment on the ground floor near the pool and restaurant and it was perfect for us. Easy...

I stayed at the Royal Bali Beach Club Jimbaran and had a 'basic' massage. One of my friends had one as well (and he fell asleep). I was told after they go 'back to the back' several times instaed of the usual limb by limb.I didnt notice - but it was so effective and relaxing.The lady that did it was Lia-amazing-but im sure they are all great. Thank you for the best massage ive had-and I have had a few:)
p.s. -you dont have to stay here to book-Its across the road from Inter Continental in Jimbaran.

From rhe moment we checked in until the day we reluctantly left , we enjoyed every bit of our four week stay at this lovely resort.
Although the front entrance is situated beside a busy main road, you could well be in a tropical paradise once inside.The pool area and restaurant were set amongst pleasant foliage and well maintained as was the entire resort.
We were given a welcome cold drink as we were speedily checked in.The reception staff were extremely pleasant with a ready smile throughout our entire stay, in fact all the staff were very friendly and helpful .I must thank Dewi on reception for her valuable help and advice and also our thanks to Sudi for a lovely sightseeing tour.
Our apartment was very comfortable and we had a large balcony overlooking the pool area.
The restaurant served some very nice dishes and poolside drinks and snacks were readily available and served by friendly and efficient waiters.
The beach was situated across the road but was easily reached via the intercontinental hotel.There were some good seafood restaurants on the beach which were quite reasonably priced and a good place to dine and watch the sun go down.
For those who like to visit the more lively resort of Kuta, the reception will summon a taxi which costs about 50, 000 rp.but beware of crooked money changers.If you need to change some currency it is best to go to the official currency exchange.
This was our first visit to Bali but after expriencing the Royal Bali Beach Club at Jimbaran we are already looking forward to our next visit.

This ISLAND is so breath taking that it has literally floored me I am yet to come to terms with this beautiful BALI & its people (ever smiling people). The RBBC resort rooms are good, clean, well maintained. Very friendly staff. I would surely recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: Excellent location, very near to the beach

This was our first opportunity to stay at the Royal Bali Beach Club Jimbaran over the Christmas and New Year period. On arrival it was obvious that it was going to be like Christmas and New Year at home, from the Christmas trees, lights, gifts under the trees and a very warm welcome home again from the management and staff. A package for Christmas Eve dinner had been put together which was very good value for money and delicious food, the turkey was beautifully cooked and very moist, other choices were also available. On Christmas Day even Santa made an appearance giving out chocolates which was a lovely gesture, in the restaurant there was Christmas music playing and everybody had a great time.

Our New Year's Eve Gala Dinner was delicious, on arrival we were given a glass of wine and our meal started at 8pm. The variety of food on offer was lovely, BBQ steak, chops, fish, skewers of vegetables and king prawns, jacket potatoes and plenty more. Fresh fruit was also available. We had a quiz during the evening and there were prizes of spa vouchers and a restaurant voucher. All the management and staff really went out of their way to ensure that your glass was never empty and you enjoyed yourself. At midnight there were plenty of fireworks and Chinese lanterns lighting up the sky, the restaurant had balloons in the roof and they all dropped down. I mentioned that in England we all sing Auld Lang Syne together so the band rehearsed it and managed to do it very well at midnight much to everyone's delight.

We truly had a fantastic time over the two week period and booked again for Christmas and New Year this year as we liked it so much.

We had the Imperial Villa number 7 which is upstairs and overlooks the swimming pool and gardens. The Villa is very large and homely with a flat screen television, DVD player, enormous fridge and two sets of patio doors opening onto a large balcony complete with sunbeds and a large thatched canopied bed to enjoy an afternoon snooze on.

Since our stay in October there has been work done on the swimming pool area which has been decked with non-slip wood, and more work done on the immaculate gardens. The staff at the hotel work tirelessly to ensure that your stay is enjoyable and nothing is ever too much trouble. Management are always noticeably around and are very approachable.

Our only regret is that we cannot visit here more often as it is a long journey from the UK but nevertheless well worth it once you get there. You cannot find a more friendly hotel to stay at, during our many years of traveling around various parts of the world Bali still remains our number one destination and the Royal Bali Beach Club is our number one hotel.

Room Tip: Imperial Villa number 7 is lovely and very comfortable.
