A CLASSIC BEAUTY BELMOND JIMBARAN PURI BALI - You have probably heard about Jimbaran Puri long before Belmond take over this gorgeous properties, after more than 36 years its charms is still sparkling, is it me that appriciated something older that they tend to be prettier or there is something more here at Belmond Jimbaran Puri to be discovered? I will take you to my genuine stay experience at one oldest property in Jimbaran and why I love with that fact it can be one memorable experience if you think Bali is your second home.
As so you know that Jimbaran is one of the richest area in Bali, people from all over area in Bali come here everyday to work in hospitality industry, as traders in traditional market, even Jimbaran become central of island's fishery, people from near by island come here to do their business. Long story short Jimbaran is a dynamic area, of course nice for leisure business because the location that close with International Airport and in the middle of the hype Kuta/Seminyak and southern part of Ungasan/Uluwatu that offering beautiful ocean view. So, no wonder if the best accomodations are located here since Bali open their arm for tourism a long decades ago.
The beach is still beautiful especially when sun goes down, Jimbaran is one perfect place to enjoy sunset in elegance beach table setting, classic music and ambience. The beauty charm of Jimbaran Bay attracts so many people; young, adult, couple, group, the one who enjoy their holiday or couple who want to capture their love story into a romatic photos (don't be surprise if there will be a bunch of couple, that dress in formal even in a wedding dress, waiting for sunset moment in Jimbaran with their team of personal photographer) while the other, including me and the other guests of Belmon Jimbaran Puri wacthing and enjoying the ambience of Jimbaran Bay with drinks and Indonesian folk songs.
Although it sounds packed and attracted so much crowd during the evening, the night time here was so serene, there's no over hype music, it was totatlly calm and lively, that's why I love Belmond Jimbaran Puri. With 38 (most favorite) cottages suites, 4 pool cottages suites, 22 pool villas, beachfront dining and ocean view bar and huge area of swimming pool and beachfront area, making Belmond Jimbaran Puri is one of the most elegance classic resort in Jimbaran Bay.
Something I dicovered here is the words "Puri", puri means palace in Balinese languange and it is something not accidental and can not be arbitrarily used by any property, unless it has something to do with kingdom of Bali in the past. The information took me back when I was in Sanur, and stay at the property where ther's "Puri" word in its hotel name, and they also have certain gates that symbolized the royalty, quite interesting story behind the name of the hotel right?
I have stayed in one bedrooom pool villa, with seperate living room and bedroom, private pool with our own jacuzzy style plunge pool, with sunbed, hanging cabanas, spacious outdoor space and bathroom complete with bathtub and outdoor bath, the villa is really spoiling you with relaxation over the top personal spaces, definetely introvert heaven, and pretty much about keep the privacy while you stay here was an awesome, you can also have breakfast here and order almost everything on the list because you can put all your breakfats order in the living room (I will show the images on different post). So if you think that the classic charm is your style, I bet you will like your stay at Belmond Jimbaran Puri
