  • About this holiday

    Expressions holidays recommends The Ayana Resort and Spa as an ideal honeymoon property in a dramatic cliff top position on the south coast of Bali. This elegant, luxurious property hugs the majestic cliffs above Jimbaran Bay and affords remarkable views over secluded coves to the sparkling Indian Ocean. Retreat into the extensive and lavish oceanfront Spa and unwind in the ocean beach pool which offers infinity views over the private and secluded Kisik Beach. Order a picnic hamper for two and pass the day under a shaded cabana on the beach or enjoy a private candlelit dinner above the ocean at the end of the private jetty. This is a tropical, elegant resort in which you can truly unwind and enjoy the lush, colourful Balinese environs.

    Our opinion

    Ayana offers a two-tiered freshwater swimming pool which leads towards a secluded private beach that is lapped by the azure sea.

    Hotel description

    In a spectacular position on a bluff overlooking the Indian Ocean, the Ayana Resort & Spa successfully combines the charm and mysticism of the island with modern sensibilities. Traditional Balinese design influences the resort’s buildings, with thatched and tiled roofs, the use of local woods inside and out, and handcrafted furnishings. Fragrant grounds surround the resort and lead down past the two-tiered freshwater swimming pool to a secluded private beach that is lapped by the azure sea. The resort’s facilities include an 18-hole golf putting course, a tennis pavilion, diving and snorkelling. Cultural experiences such as Indonesian language classes and cooking demonstrations provide insight into the traditions and character of the area, and extensive off-site excursions include elephant trekking and village tours. The resort’s seven restaurants include Padi, set amongst rice terraces and offering Thai cuisine in thatched-roof pavilions. Seawater, considered holy by the Balinese, takes a central role in the spa, which combines Asian and European treatments. The resort offers a superb range of guestrooms, all of which are spacious, with private balconies and views over either the garden or the ocean. They are luxuriously decorated in muted colours and with Balinese-crafted furnishings to create a blend of modern and traditional styles. The Ocean View Suites are especially spacious and have a large balcony from which to enjoy the view, a separate living room, and fresh fruit and flowers are refreshed daily. This is an ideal choice if you are looking for extensive facilities in a most luxurious environment.
