If your check list for a great family holiday includes comfortable rooms, a huge pool, good food, a pampering spa, friendly pro-active service and an interesting local vibe, then Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran is worth a look.
Situated in Jimbaran, alongside the shopping and cultural centre Samasta Lifestyle Village, guests at Mövenpick have plenty to do at the hotel and in the local area. The sprawling pool is probably the heart of the hotel and has plenty of space for a dedicated kids waterpark with slides, sprays and buckets, while adults can relax on the sun loungers, float on the inflatables, or swim around pool.
Perhaps the favourite pool spot for families is the beach ambience of JeJaLa pool bar with its sandy shore, hammocks, pavilions and gazebos, as well as child-friendly slides and a playground, healthy food, frozen fruit margaritas and more. In fact, the beach itself is only a short 5-minute walk away and is famed for its incredible sunsets and the fresh seafood stalls that pop up at this time of day.
The hotel is also home to Meera Kids Club, a professionally managed two-storey pirate-themed adventure area with indoor and outdoor play areas, exciting activities like kite making, painting and arts and crafts, a trampoline and ball pit, amphitheatre and sleeping room for toddlers. Older kids have their own cosy space upstairs with beanbags and console games.
With five dining destinations on site – and the happy fact that kids up to 6 eat free and 7-12 year olds pay half price – there are plenty of choices to keep your tummy happy on holiday. Anarasa, the main restaurant, serves up an extensive buffet breakfast with live stations that can be taken on the terrace overlooking the shimmering pool or inside in air-conditioned comfort. Kids have their own buffet section and seating area if they want to hang out with their new friends. An à la carte menu is served for the rest of the day.
Another fun option is Katha Lobby Lounge & Library where a sumptuous afternoon tea – with plenty of the Mövenpick’s famed Swiss-style cakes and pastries – is served, while Mövenpick Café showcases creamy artisanal ice cream, cakes and coffees. If you fancy an imaginative cocktail and some exciting Nikkei – Japanese-Peruvian – cuisine, then Above Eleven has it all.
On top of all this, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran has an excellent range of rooms and suites with free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, minibar and balcony or terrace, including the 56sqm Family Pool View Rooms accommodating two adults and two children under 12 years old, or three adults, with complimentary kids club access, a master bedroom with king-size bed downstairs and a second bedroom upstairs with a sofa bed. The sleek and elegant 68sqm Premium Suites are spacious enough for an extra bed, providing another option for two adults and one child. Whatever your family is looking for, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran could be the answer.
