Travel To Four Seasons Bali For Culture, Cuisine & Luxury

Whether you prefer a week on the beach, an itinerary full of trips, or a little bit of both; always make sure you do it in style.

Bali is the perfect destination for travelers who want to combine a relaxing beach holiday on one of the worlds most intriguing islands with the opportunity to explore a culture that’s very different from their own. The Four Seasons resort in Bali can assure you get the best of both worlds amid unbeatable five-star luxury.

Located on the southern tip of the island, on the gentle terraced hillside named Bukit Permai or ‘beautiful hill’, Four Season’s Jibaran Bay offers 35 acres of superbly landscaped tropical gardens next to an idyllic expanse of white sandy beach.

Rest & Relaxation

The resort’s 10,000ft2 spa uses the healing and cleansing powers of water treatments combined with salt and crystals to restore and bring balance to emotions and energy levels. The Ocean Embrace treatment is an indulgent 120 minutes of total relaxation where you walk out of the spa a totally different person as to when you walked in.

Magical Menu

The Four Seasons name is synonymous with delicious food and drink. Culinary highlights at Jibaran Bay begin first thing in the morning with the vast breakfast buffet at the Taman Wantilan restaurant or in the privacy of your villa, if you prefer.

Wherever you choose to eat your morning meal, there is no better way to start the day than with a steaming cup of Balinese coffee and a traditional Indonesian breakfast including fried rice and bubur ayam, a rice porridge served with shredded chicken, roasted coconut, wild ginger and lemon grass.

As the sun sets, head to Sundara – Sanskrit for ‘beautiful’ – the resort’s beachfront restaurant, that pays tribute to the glowing sun that warms this Indian ocean hotspot and makes for a picturesque meeting place.

Island of Flavours

The Balinese cooking school at Jibarana Bay is a favourite stop for novice and experienced chefs. The Four Seasons’ Balinese cuisine course begins with a trip to a local market to shop for ingredients then its back to the resort where the Four Seasons’ chefs expertly demonstrate how to make some of the island’s most delicious dishes, including satay lilt ayam (chicken satay), acar sayur (pickled vegetables) and pepes ika kakap (grilled snapper wrapped in banana leaf).

Head to local favourite Bumbu Bali – named after the blend of spices customary in Balinese cuisine – for a truly authentic dining experience. Chefs spend hours each day perusing local markets to ensure that each dish – from skewered skate to refreshing papaya salad – is at its freshest. Since eating out is not a social custom in Bali, the atmosphere here has been carefully crafted to evoke the feeling of dining in a traditional village home.
