With a location, design, dining and facilities geared towards fun and relaxation for people of all ages, the five-star Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran is a delightfully welcoming, stylish and spacious upscale family resort.
Located 10km south of Bali’s I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport and situated just 100m from the iconic Jimbaran Beach, famed for its glorious sunsets and fish restaurants, the resort is integrated within the Samasta Lifestyle Village shopping and cultural complex.
Within the resort discover five distinctly different dining destinations including JeJaLa, the pool bar with its wide swim-up hammocks and the Swiss-inspired Mövenpick Café located in the Samasta Lifestyle Village. Overlooking the pool complex and gardens, the casual, urban-chic of Anarasa with large indoor and al fresco seating options is the resort’s all-day dining restaurant and offers a mixed international à la carte menu as well as buffet breakfast with special kids’ zone and themed buffets including a delicious Sunday Brunch.
At Above Eleven Bali, the resort’s chic rooftop, relax and enjoy the cool breeze and far-reaching ocean views over Jimbaran Bay with a cold beer, mocktail, cocktail or refreshing soft drinks as the sun sets gracefully, before indulging in Peruvian-Japanese dishes and a glass or two from the impressive wine list after dark. Meanwhile, back downstairs and adjacent to the beautifully art-accented lobby, kids will love the complimentary Mövenpick Chocolate Hour served from 4pm in the relaxed ambience of Katha Lobby Lounge & Library, which also offers a sumptuous afternoon tea, cocktails, pastries and ice creams.
For parents, the Arkipela Spa is a serene magnet of luxurious pampering and offers an array of delicious rituals and treatments delivered in stunning treatment rooms. But without doubt the daytime social centre is the resort’s magnificent pools and their tropical grounds.
With loungers, parasols and beach-style cabanas throughout, the main lagoon pool features slides and water toys for older kids along with a sweeping artificial beach and plenty of space to make a splash. For toddlers the separate shallow pool, with its water slides and climbing apparatus built over a foam base for added safety, is a hive of activity. There’s also a large lap pool that features shaded loungers, a sit-in shallow ledge for sunbathing and two large covered areas.
Tucked behind the kid’s pool is the pirate ship-inspired Meera Kids Club. A fun-filled hub of activity set over two floors featuring a game station, mini theatre, trampoline with ball pit and sleeping room. For kids aged four to 12 there are activity programmes, some even including parents like Family Yoga, Balinese Cooking and the Meera Family Bali Package, a half-day activity programme featuring activities like kite-making and face-painting.
New for 2018 is the Mövenpick Family programme, which offers parents a wide range of complimentary extras and kids’ amenities designed to keep them happy and entertained throughout their stay. With plenty of space, effortless dining and quality childcare, the experience starts at check-in when kids get the VIP treatment and continues throughout with those little added extras that really make a difference to parents.
Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran is the perfect choice for your Balinese family escape and with seven styles of rooms or suites, including the delightful Jimbaran Pool Suite, there really is something for everyone.
