Clifftop Pampering: Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali
Amid clifftop tropical gardens overlooking Jimbaran Bay, Ayana Resort and Spa, Bali, has the best of both worlds: majestic views and a convenient location for Bali’s airport. This retreat, comprising 290 hotel rooms and 78 private villas, is where you’ll find a completely indulgent romantic vacation: dine lavishly, explore endlessly, and relax decadently (in the best possible sense!) at this five-star escape. Staying at a cliff villa gives you the ambience of a “resort within a resort” — your own private lobby, two-level freshwater infinity pool, and library/rec area — but in every private villa, you get the best of island style and modern convenience: private infinity plunge pools, sunbeds, relaxation gazebos, and open-air accommodations that house the master bedroom, wardrobe, deluxe bath with soaking tub and rain shower, plus plenty of room to spread out!
Need more pampering? Never fear, it’s here: outdoor showers, plasma TVs, DVD players, iPod docking stations, and 24-hour on-call butlers, just to mention a few special touches. Wi-Fi is complimentary, should you want to stay in touch with the outside world — but you might just want to “switch off” the ordinary for a while and bask in your gorgeous surroundings, with nothing on your “to-do” list but your next treatment at the Thermes Marins Spa and award-winning Spa on the Rocks…or a private three-course candlelit romantic dinner created just for you and served by your butler in your private villa. No matter whether you have a special occasion to celebrate — wedding, anniversary, second honeymoon — or are merely getting away for an unforgettable vacation of a lifetime, Ayana can make your “getaway” dreams come true.
