Few resort communities on this planet truly reflect the “something for everyone” mantra as well as AYANA in Bali. Set across 222 acres, this luxurious estate has earned considerable praise for its Villas and Rimba concepts, as well as the flagship AYANA Resort, which spoils guests with regional authenticity. But there’s a new star in this constellation, and it is destined to become the immediate crowd favorite.
AYANA Segara Bali recently opened its doors, ushering in a new sense of style at this sprawling Jimbaran oasis. In addition to boasting the largest indoor/outdoor pool in Bali, this resort is also home to a downright massive spa—more than 236,000 sq. ft. for those keeping track at home—which will make it a highly desirable choice for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. After all, that’s a crucial element when traveling 10-20 hours to get somewhere.
Just like the original AYANA Resort, this property’s 205 rooms and suites will feature unmistakably Balinese décor and accents; however, guests will also experience an overwhelming sense of “California Cool.” Every accommodation spoils visitors with a private balcony or terrace, which amplifies the already incredible views of this cliffside escape that sits above the tree line.
The highest point in Segara Bali is Luna, one of three new restaurants putting a heavy emphasis on creative variety. This spot will be an instant hit for travelers who crave the best sunsets in the world, but the farm-to-table Indonesian dishes like jagung bakar and mie goreng kaki lima will still be the real treats. The appropriately named Medi will serve fresh Mediterranean salads and pastas, as well as Italian wines that won’t be found anywhere else on the island. And Karang is the all-day dining option serving Pan-Asian and Italian dishes, among other resort staples.
No opening is grand unless it features special deals, and AYANA Segara Bali is offering guests a 25 percent discount on rates, as well as special spa perks that bolster this property’s intense dedication to wellness. A complimentary one-hour AYANA Spa experience and in-room therapy discount should have everyone forgetting why they needed an escape in the first place.
