61. Ayana Resort & Spa, Jimbaran Bay, Indonesia
Ranked #61 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
“Fabulous location, villas are divine, scope of restaurants innovative, private butlers a dream and the bar at the bottom of the cliff is out is of this world.” Bev Malzard
On the craggy limestone cliffs of Bali’s Jimbaran Bay, Ayana is a labyrinth of suites and villas, bars and restaurants, tiny temples, horizon pools and beach cabanas.
The gardens are tropical and impossibly lush. It’s modern but imbued with traditional Balinese spirit. There’s always frangipani in the air, open-air pavilions and the tinkling sounds of gamelan.
The spa is brimming with body and soul-restoring treatments. But best of all, the cliff-clinging Rock Bar is rock-star ready – the place to watch those tropical sunsets.
Size 290 rooms and 78 villas
