My wife and I stayed at Jimbaran Puri Bali for 4 nights as the second part of our Bali travels. Coming from Maya Ubud we were spoilt a bit, but Jimbaran Puri Bali impressed us as well. In a different way.
We booked a Garden Cottage which more than met our expectations. The room was extremely well appointed with your own terrace and small courtyard plus an outdoor shower, ideal when coming back from the beach.
Talking about the beach, that was perfect too. It sort of felt as a private beach and there are plenty of loungers to pick from. Also my wife confirmed that the massages they perform right at the beach were wonderful.
We are not really pool-people but one afternoon we decided to give it a go. The pool is huge and also very quiet with many chairs and loungers to choose from and close to the bar.
The breakfast was also in a wonderful setting just 50 meters from the sea and with an excellent choice of juices, breads and local delicatessen.
The thing we did not like was the fact that the price of food/drinks are very high at the hotel. I believe the hotel would do better by lowering their prices as their restaurants / bar area were deserted at night. I believe lowering the prices to a level perhaps still slightly above the prices of the surrounding areas would generate more money for them in the long term. I would have definitely spent more money at the hotel if the prices were more reasonable because the tables at the beach looked very tempting but were empty most of the time.
A short taxi ride from the resort you will find the most amazing barbecued seafood, which we tried 2 evenings. You can indulge on lobster, king prawns, rice, salad and drinks etc. for 40 Euros for 2 people.
All in all a great resort after coming with high expectation from Maya Ubud, and I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel and would return in the future.
