Following a spectacular opening night of food, fashion and funky performances in May, the chic resort of Le Meridien Bali Jimbaran has injected a swanky flair to the picturesque sandy bay of Jimbaran. The five-star hotel is contemporary and edgy yet considerate to its surroundings by juxtaposing sleek and inspiring arts with rich and iconic elements of Balinese culture.
Surrounded by serene and refreshing water features, the hotel’s 118 guest rooms, suites, penthouses and villas feature modern batik motifs and striking liquid art imagery by German artist Markus Reugels. Ground floor guest rooms open directly onto the uniquely designed 1,300 square meter organic saltwater lagoon pool, while floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces offer inspiring views across the culturally-rich Jimbaran landscape.?
The hotel has proven to be particularly popular amongst couples and families, steps away from convenient beach front amenities at the heart of Bali’s famed fishing hub. The signature Bamboo Chic restaurant has also garnered the attention of Asia’s foodies, seduced by its creative Pan-Asian cuisine, curated using Bali’s freshest organic produce.
