3. Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, Bali, Indonesia
The first of all luxury resorts to offer individual standalone villas with plunge pools in Bali, the 31-year-old property has always managed to stay ahead of the competition even as a slew of hotels and resorts open on the island of Bali.
After a revamp completed in 2016, it has increased the plunge pool size by a third in the Premier category. A living room has also been added, pushing up the size of the villas. Even the smallest one, the garden villa, starts at 250 sq m of private indoor and outdoor space.
The revamped Taman Wantilan pavilion restaurant’s dining concept now reflects the Balinese communal village. It consists of nine mini-kitchens that invite you to wander around to make your selections. You can avail yourself to a few continents of cuisine choices in just one restaurant.
Also, many of the Balinese paintings, a fixture in most resorts and hotels on the island, have been replaced by carved stone panels and wooden settees.
