A Haven of Refined Seclusion
Look at a map of the island and you’ll see that Raffles Bali is the closest ultra luxury resort to Ngurah Rai International Airport. The journey between the two takes just 25 minutes, yet once you arrive, the chaotic concourse of Bali’s international gateway might as well belong to another world. The land upon which the resort is built was bought more than two decades ago with the dream of creating a collection of private villas, all of them with the breathtaking sunset views grace by the gentle breeze that made Jimbaran famous. Today, the resort spreads out across 23 hectares of lush tropical garden, cascading down the hillside towards a secluded beach that remains a secret to all but our guests and a handful of local fishermen.
There are just 32 villas to share this iconic location, a fact that affords each an unparalleled level of privacy and space. All villas have their own private garden and a full-size swimming pool. Our Raffles Wellbeing Butler will work tirelessly to ensure that all your needs are anticipated and taken care of. From limousine airport transfers to customized sleeping rituals, our commitment to your emotional wellbeing allows you to shrug off responsibility and dedicate your time to living for a while in uninterrupted peace and pleasure. It is our hope that the balance of mind, body and soul you find during your time here will stay with you long after your departure.
Our unpretentious Balinese design of the villas and public spaces, which were built with sustainability in mind represents our utmost respect for Balinese culture and nature around us. In the lobby, a huge boulder pushes upwards from the floor, an iconic symbol of eternal harmonious connection in between mankind and nature. Your arrival at the resort is serenaded by the chimes of traditional Genta Urag, first utilised by the Balinese during temple ceremonies. During the rest of your stay, we invite you to discover more of Bali’s unique culture through experiences that range from Balinese dance classes to blessing ceremonies at the Resort Temple.
