Nestled between lush tropical gardens on a pristine cliffside with sweeping views of Jimbaran Bay is the newest member of AYANA Bali, an estate with multiple resorts, swimming pools and the famous Rock Bar jutting out over the cliffside . AYANA Segara Bali is a property where bringing the outdoors in takes on a whole new meaning.
It might appear from its exterior like a contemporary resort; a low, white building with curved lines and a cerulean lagoon-style pool, but step inside AYANA Segara and there’s no denying you’re in Bali.
Designed by Yasuhiro Koichi, who was also behind the famed Rock Bar, there are intricate wood carvings in the lobby and a kamasan (traditional painting) within the ceiling.
Dining at AYANA Segara Bali
When hunger calls, start near the main pool at Karang’s all-day dining restaurant, where there’s a Pan-Asian menu and Chinese and Italian tapas.
Scusa serves Mediterranean-style cuisine (with wines to match), while at the top of the resort, Luna (beside the rooftop pool) is the place to go to sip a cocktail and watch the sky turn a pretty shade of pink. Here, dishes are created using fresh local ingredients from AYANA Farm.
When you’ve tried all three, jump on the resort shuttle and slip between the other 25 dining destinations in the estate.
Each of the rooms and suites has indoor-outdoor spaces with private terraces and Balinese-style wooden décor. For larger groups, AYANA Segara Bali’s two-bedroom ocean view room sleeps up to six adults and has panoramic ocean views.
Wellness is part of the DNA at AYANA Segara Bali. Swim some laps at the hotel’s pool – it’s the largest indoor-outdoor pool in Bali – then choose from myriad spa therapies in one of 53 calming treatment rooms.
There are traditional Balinese massages and marine rituals by a Japanese osteopath and anti-aging expert, each created exclusively for AYANA. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, choose Ocean Rituals at AYANA’s Spa on The Rocks. The treatment villa is perched above the formation of sculptured rock along the coastline, where you’ll be able to relax to the sound of nothing but the lapping waves below.
The fourth property in AYANA’s 90-hectare estate, AYANA Segara Bali shines with its seamless indoor-outdoor flow, and its laidback luxury style of living, making the most of life in this tropical paradise.
