Jimbaran gives beach a facelift


DENPASAR, Bali, 20 June 2018: The adult-only Jamahal Private Resort & Spa will close its beach club, 3 January 2019, until further notice for a major remake.

Jimbaran village announced it would add a beach-walk to span the length of the beach, which requires the resort to close its beach club.

Pitched as an adult-only boutique resort, entrance is restricted to guests 16 years or above.

It is located in the centre of Jimbaran Village in South Bali,  a 550-metre walk from the public beach.

Lacking direct access to the beach, the resort built a beach club, which is now the site of the village’s shoreline improvements.

Offering one and two-bedroom villas, a master-pool villa and two spa pool villas, as well 10 one-bedroom villas, the resort can accommodate a maximum of 24 guests.

The resort’s best rate for direct bookings is USD 275 a night for a one-bedroom villa (Early Bird Promotion).

Meanwhile, a resort at Bali’s popular cultural village of Ubud has been rebranded Adiwana Resort Jembawan, according to a press statement issued last week.

The management announced, earlier this month, the rebranding of what was previously trading under the name of Alaya Resort Jembawan.

The change in branding will be effective 1 July, in a move to consolidate the launch of the Adiwana brand, which currently manages four boutique resorts and is planning two more properties.

Adiwana Resort Jembawan has 42 rooms and positions itself as a “boutique wellness retreat,” that has a onsite team of experts, including an Ayurvedic doctor and yoga instructor

In other news, Asian Trails Indonesia’s latest update for travel partners noted that Bali would be the first location for new resort under the REVĪVŌ brand.
