There’s nothing more peaceful than the sounds of the sea. Experience long-lasting tranquillity as you step into the InterContinental Bali Resort, which is blessed with an endless stretch of white sand beach overlooking the blue waters of Jimbaran Bay.

This island has become a metaphor for tropical luxury and is also rich in natural resources.  Cherishing the precious side of Bali, the InterContinental Hotel Group opened the InterContinental Bali Resort in 1993, becoming the first luxury hotel to be built in the Jimbaran area. Now, after more than two decades, it remains one of the best. The grand entrance of the lobby will enchant you, along with the warm greetings from the friendly staff. Once you arrive, you will be spoiled with luxury and comfort. At the Intercontinental Bali Resort, everyone is special.

The property embraces a 14 hectare landscape, featuring six pools, two spas, a kids’ club, six restaurants, four bars and 417 guest rooms in six separate wings – not to mention the grand ballroom, meeting rooms and outdoor wedding venue. The InterContinental Bali Resort won a prestigious World Luxury Hotel Award in the Luxury Wedding Destination Category for the second time in 2015. It is certainly a favourite destination for weddings, honeymooners and families, as well.

The InterContinental Bali Resort offers three luxury levels of accommodations: Resort Classic, Singaraja and Club InterContinental. There are two different types of room offered in each category. The Resort Classic has the Resort Classic Room and the Resort Classic Suite. This type has been created using a modern Balinese approach, featuring hardwood floors, handcrafted furniture and soft furnishings, while Singaraja has Singaraja Rooms and Singaraja Duplex Suites. Singaraja has its very own reception where complimentary beverages and light refreshments are available through 24-hour self-service. The last level is the Club InterContinental Rooms and the Suite Collection. These elegant accommodations have their own unique styles and they truly embody the spirit of tropical living.
