Beautiful beach experience at the InterContinental Bali

My apologies for my lack of updates! Over the past months I’ve pretty much traveled the world full time, living out of a suitcase – or two. Hotel beds became home in Orlando, Austin, Miami and Bali, barely spending enough time at home in Amsterdam to pack for my next trip to New York.

Looking back at the last months, my stay at the InterContinental Bali always brings a smile to my face.

Sure, the beach is wide and sandy, but not covered by plastic beach beds. And of course the restaurants are diverse and exquisite, but there are no endless lines of tourists stuffing their faces on all you can eat buffets.

We stayed in a spacious club room at the InterContinental Jimbaran at the end of a two-week stay in Bali. Their club rooms are located in a separate sea view wing of the hotel, with a special club pool for club room guests only. Another perk for club room guests is the complimentary High Tea in the afternoon, with an assortment of drinks and snacks. It is served either in the club lounge, or in the lovely bales by the pool as the sun sets.

By the way, the food options at the InterContinental Bali seem almost endless and range from Balinese, Indonesian and Italian to Japanese. Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to have dinner in the renowned Japanese restaurant Ko, but I strongly recommend the Italian restaurant Bella Cucina. There is outdoor seating underneath the stars and you can hear the waves crash on the beach as you’re sipping your cocktails.

My favorite restaurant Menega serves wonderful coconut barbecued seafood and their clams and jumbo prawns are heavenly.

The resort is so large, with beautiful spacious grounds, that there is always a special place either by one of the pools, in a comfy sunlounger on the beach or in the gardens to relax. Everywhere you look, there are some stunning details in the flowers, the fountains and footpaths that give the hotel its unique Balinese ambiance.

All facilities, especially the gym, spa, restaurants and pools, are in mint condition.

It is just impossible to include all the amenities, facilities and perks on offer at The InterContinental Bali, so I recommend to explore the resort more in-depth by visiting the official website. You will not be disappointed!
