Jimbaran Bay holidays are perfect if you’ve been dreaming of a Bali beach break. This secluded fishing village on the southwest coast is home to luxury hotels set on a pristine beach. Sheltered by a coral reef, Jimbaran Bay offers tranquil, safe waters that are perfect for swimming.

Despite its upmarket resorts, Jimbaran Bay has managed to retain an authentic Balinese vibe, combining local culture with the five star luxury. Shop at open-air markets, watch artisans create stunning tableware at Jenggala Ceramics and dine on fresh seafood while you watch the sunset. Spend your days soaking up the sun at Jimbaran Bay, or venture further afield to nearby beaches like Suluban, which is known for its surfing, caves and shipwreck. Don’t miss a visit to the striking Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park (GWK), home to a giant statue that depicts the Hindu god Vishnu riding a mythical eagle. Take a day trip from Suluban to Uluwatu, where you can explore Uluwatu Temple, a beautiful and sacred Hindu shrine that’s perched on a cliff high above the sea.

Jimbaran Bay: the ultimate Bali beach escape

For the ultimate beach break, you can choose from popular Jimbaran Bay hotels such as Movenpick Resort and Spa, the InterContinental Bali Resort and Belmond Jimbaran Puri. These hotels are perfect for both couples and families; offering chic facilities like pools, spas, kids’ clubs and gourmet restaurants.

Jimbaran Bay is the ideal base to explore more of Bali’s treasures; from lime-green rice terraces to coffee plantations, temples and volcanoes. Our four day Images of Bali tour takes in the island’s highlights, including Lovina for volcanic beaches and wild dolphins, the Candidasa mountains and Ubud, where you’ll find a sacred Monkey Forest filled with long tailed macaques. To discover more of Indonesia and its 17,500 plus islands, combine your Jimbaran Bay beach break with a visit to Java, home to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Borobudur Temple and Mount Bromo.
