Jumeriah is one of the world’s most highly regarded hotelier groups. They have added a stunning new all-villa resort to their impressive portfolio. Sitting right on the awe-inspiring cliffs of Uluwatu, Jumeriah Bali is set to become the island’s premier 5-star coastal resort.
Jumeriah Bali has opened its doors to guests and the timing could not be better. With both government-sanctioned travel restrictions easing, airlines like Emirates recommencing their commercial flight schedule to Bali, and the visa on arrival program back up and running, there has not been a better time in the last two years to open a resort.
The Jumeriah Group is renowned for its exquisite hotels and the Jumeriah Bali is no exception. Unlike some of their other venues, Jumeriah Bali is an all-villa resort. Guests can indulge in their homely villa and enjoy the privacy of the secluded Uluwatu. The design of the villas is heavily influenced by Balinese Hindu culture and there is a sprinkling of the essence of Java throughout the property. Guests are offered the space to reconnect with themselves and ease into a more balanced way of being during their stay.
The resort is impressive in its size. They have developed 123 villas that are offering either one or two bedrooms. The equivalent of the penthouse suite at Jumeriah Bali is a four-bedroom Royal Water Palace that offers an exclusive view of the ocean, surrounded by the tropical fauna that Bali is famed for. The company has a strong commitment to its sustainability values and prides itself on the exceptional levels of service they afford its guests.
No corners have been cut in creating the Jumeriah Bali. Guests have access to three in-house restaurants and bars. The whole dining operation is overseen by Master Chef’s Vincent Leroux, supported by a resident mixologist whose job is to curate the perfect drinks to marry each element of the experience together. There is even a resident DJ who will be curating the nighttime experience for guests.
Uluwatu is an emerging tourism area in Bali. While the majority of holiday-goers tend to head for the reliable and familiar areas of Kuta and Seminyak to experience a slice of the Balinese coastline, there is increasing attention from the luxury tourism sector on Ulutwau. Set on the southernmost tip of Bali, Uluwatu has long been the secret of international surfers who travel from all corners of the world to catch the choppy surf. In recent years Uluwatu has undergone a transition from a sleepy surf village to a high-end, luxury retreat.
The retreat industry in Bali is booming. Even before the pandemic, Bali was hailed as the destination for people to find themselves, reconnect and heal. Many travelers headed to Ubud and checked themselves in for intensive yoga retreats, juice fasts, and breathwork training courses. After two years of living in some degree of lockdown, people are eager to head to Bali to put into practice the lifestyle changes the pandemic has helped them identify as necessary.
Ubud will always remain a hub for spiritual seekers, yogis, and those who want to dip their toes into the health and wellness opportunities the area has to offer. For those keen to find somewhere a little more off the beaten track, somewhere with the untouched charm and authenticity that Bali is known for, with access to indulgent luxuries, Uluwatu is certainly the place to be.
Although there are impressive high-end resorts and retreats in Uluwatu that offer experiences for high-budget travelers, it is still possible to experience Uluwatu and southern Bali on a shoestring. There are dozens of hippie backpacker hostels, small locally run guesthouses, and plenty of AirBnB options. There is something for everyone in Uluwatu.
