ESCAPE TO MENJANGAN DYNASTY RESORT, WEST BALI - Around August 2015 I went to West Bali to explore its nature and beauties supported by Unilever, the trip called Travel Smart with Pepsodent. I had made 5 Days Bali Itinerary, and explore almost all the part of Bali from West to East, Central and South, but unfortunately, I had no time to explore the Nothern Part.
Back then, the White Sandy Beach was only an ordinary beach, there were some bungalows and local warung, we can say it was a dive center, for people who wants enjoy the Menjangan water by diving or snorkeling. It was a beautiful beach, and I remember I said to myself that I want to spend some days here next time, even at that time I wasn't so sure about the bungalows. Who knows, in late April 2017, when I was planning my trip back to Bali, there's Menjangan Dynasty Resort, Beach Camp & Dive Centre in the exact location when the boat picked me up for snorkeling. I was like no way, I need to go here, period!
Not only it's quite sentimental for me, but their concept of Glamping a.k.a Glamorous Camping simply interests me. From the span years, no need question that the Menjangan Dynasty Resort is a new accommodation in the area. so there's not yet a maintenance problem because it's a new :). Why I said it was an escape, because from the airport to Menjangan Dynasty Resort it's 4 hours road trip, almost like Jakarta-Bandung, so I get used to it. But I hear from their staff, there will be an option of Helicopter and I believe, they already have a seaplane to accommodate you to reach the resort faster, so I think it's good, 2 experience at a time.
They have total 28 rooms (24 beach camp tents, 2 one bedroom cliff tent villas with private pool and bathtub, 2 two bedrooms cliff tent villa with private pool and bathtub that suitable for family)
This eco-friendly resort is much inspired by luxury African safari tent, you can get the ambience when the staff at the reception greeted you, with safari uniform and massive bamboo structure all over the resort; Lobby, restaurant, spa and its own dive centre, brought to you by Bali Hai Diving Academy with all the water fun and even adventure to Ijen Carter they have provided.
For me personally, it was a great destination to escape from bustling part of Bali, it wasn't really "Bali", it was completely different, but you don't have to pay for an extra airfare to feel the experience. I can't compare it with any other places because it's unique, you can explore the underwater by snorkeling or diving, having fun by canoeing or play with the paddle board if you got extra time you can explore our West Bali National Park and mangrove. But if you want to enjoy the resort, you can swim at their Infinity Pool with a view, enjoying the afternoon tea at the Pasir Putih beach club & bar while sunbathing, or even try their beachfront Pasir Putih Spa by Ambiente.
