“Loved our Villa !!”
Reviewed 19 February 2007

Of the resort-style (as opposed to city/business) Four Seasons, this one and the Ubud/Sayan Four Seasons has been our favorite. Everything, from the frangipani blossoms floating in a welcoming bath (huge stand alone soaking tub), to the private outside living area and plunge pool with a view towards the sea, to the staff and restaurants, was really quite perfect. By the time they showed me the outdoor shower, I was giggling uncontrollably.
Each acommodation is a villa -- they climb up the hill from the sea and the area is intensely landscaped so some have better views and are more private than others.
The staff was also amazingly warm and responsive -- more so than even in Thailand, the Land of Smiles, where we went last year.
Excellent spa, not as large as the one in Chiang Mai but great treatments.
Very nice gift shop. Pretty infinity edge pool area.
The downside? You can't walk to shopping and with the exception of the local fish restaurants down the beach, there's no where else to eat. The hotel does do a good job of mixing things up, with special regional dinner nights, a beach bbq night, and local dishes. Booking your own car and driver is the best bet for excursions, though taxis are quite cheap if you want to dine out one night or go to a club.
The beach is great for a walk and a dip but shallow quite a way out and a bit rocky in places. Wish we'd made time to go out on the catamaran !!

Stayed January 2007

Reviewed 11 January 2007

Our first family vacation to Asia was fabulous. Two adults and 3 girls (ages 8, and 6 yr. old twins). We were in Bali for 6 days and enjoyed every minute of it. We stayed at Four Seasons in Jimbaran Bay and I'll mention right from the start--if you complain about it being too overpriced or expensive, you shouldn't be staying at a Four Seasons. From the time we were picked up at the airport (with exactly 5 cold towels and bottles of water waiting in the car), I felt the luxuriousness of the resort. Upon our arrival, check-in was prompt and welcoming. We took a short "buggy" (which are golf carts that they have readily available to take you anywhere on the resort grounds) ride to our 2-bedroom villa. The children's bedroom had a plate of cookies ready with each of the girls' names iced on the cookie and an enormous basket of games, toys (local handicrafts), coloring books, crayons--all in sets of 3. Talk about being VERY kid-friendly and making our girls feel like princessses.

The villa itself was beautiful (beware of wandering snails at night however, since the living areas are not enclosed)--private plunge pool is nice but didn't use it much because the big pools are much more fun! Bedrooms and bathrooms on both sides of the living area are enclosed however and nicely airconditioned. Bathrooms are amazing--would love to mimic the design and feel in my own home.

Now we get to the service--exceptional!! We were always greeted everywhere we went. Just about everyone knows you are Mr. and Mrs. so-and-so. Daily breakfast was included for us and usually could take us until about dinner. You order anything you want, and as much as you want. My oldest daughter's favorite fruit became the rambutan (beautiful red fruit with very soft spikes on outside, and delicious fruit like a lychee on the inside), as well as mine. One day we asked for a plate of those with our breakfast. Next afternoon, when we came back from a full day of activities, a plate filled with just rambutans was waiting in our room. I've never experienced that kind of attention to detail at any other hotel/resort. Someone obviously noticed we liked those. Why would you return and stay anywhere else? And I only have one thing to say about the spa/massage--get one!!

Many things to do in Bali, esp. with kids:
--Elephant safari park a must--very interacive experience also
--Monkey Forest not to skip--buy the bananas
--Reptile Farm--want to hold a 2-feet iguana? Our girls did!
--Ubud--lots of cool things to look at, buy

All of these things and more we did with the help of our fantastic driver. This is much cheaper than arranging transport through the hotel. You pay him a fixed price (which is quite inexpensive)and he is yours for the entire day. They live there so they know everything about the island.

There isn't much negative to speak about. The hospitality and friendliness of the Balinese is something you would have to experience for yourself--there are too many good words to say. When we go back, I would not go in December, however. We were there over Christmas holiday and it was VERY hot!! Locals say it is usually their hottest month. But staying at the Four Seasons more than makes up for mother nature. Please go and enjoy and please email at cltran333@yahoo.com if you would like the name and number of the driver we used.
