Known as the 'Island of the Gods', the Indonesian island of Bali is undeniably magical.
Amongst the rice paddies, exotic flowers and mist-shrouded jungles, you'll find everything from ancient temples to rugged volcanoes, while the coast is lined by some of the world's most enviable beaches. Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts has perfectly captured the very best of the surrounding natural beauty, so why not soak up every corner of Bali with a twin-centre stay at two equally elegant properties.
Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay
Your Beachfront Balinese Village
Set in a sheltered bay showcasing three miles of unspoilt sand, this authentic bolthole is designed to reflect a traditional Balinese village, with breezy villas built around furnished courtyards featuring plunge pools and space for alfresco dining. While the Healing Village Spa utilises sacred rituals and ancient therapies to rebalance mind and body, options for dinner include the candle-lit atmosphere of Sundara, or the interactive concept of Taman Wantilan, where a troupe of speciality chefs serve mouthwatering dishes from nine live cooking stations.
Two Bedroom Premier Ocean Villa
On an island of such diversity, it's unsurprising the resort has a catalogue of activities and adventures that would capture anyone's imagination. Try your hand at surfing the waves on beautiful Jimbaran beach with the help of TropicSurf instructors, soak up the sun as you relax at the Sundara Beach Club, which hosts Bali's Longest Sunday Brunch every week, or participate in preserving the rich culture of Bali at the Ganesha Cultural Centre, where you can take a guided shrine tour with an expert, or watch an authentic Balinese dance performance at the temple.
Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan
Your Spiritual Riverside Sanctuary
Arrival at this rainforest hideaway begins by walking along a dramatic bridge to reach the gravity-defying rooftop lotus ponds, before you take an ethereal descent through a valley of verdant gardens and terraced rice paddies to enter the main resort. Although only 15 minutes from the cultural centre of Ubud, the tranquillity of your spacious suite or villa will leave you feeling a world away. If you're searching for something extra special, the art-filled Royal Villa exemplifies palatial luxury in Bali, featuring a spacious sun terrace and swimming pool, a private meditation zone and an open-air dining gazebo fit for Indonesian royalty.
Rooftop Lotus Pond
Sokasi Cooking School
Put your skills and senses to the test during your stay, as you relish a variety of classes and cultural adventures. Along the bank of the Ayung River, you'll find Sokasi - the resort's riverside cooking school - serving freshly picked ingredients at the Chef's Table, while you can also indulge in a cooking lesson or a market tour if you wish. If you'd rather nurture your sense of adventure than your taste buds, Four Seasons can arrange an immense selection of authentic experiences - spend the day as a Balinese rice farmer, take a cycling tour through a traditional Bongkasa Village, or experience the thrill of rafting along Bali's longest river.
