About Bali

Bali can be without a doubt described as a paradise. In addition to the beautiful landscape, the people in Bali are friendly and the lifestyle breezy. Bali is a feast for the body, mind and spirit. Though relatively small, the island offers the natural beauty of oceans, volcanic mountains and verdant rain forests and rice paddies, as well as the many manifestations of Balinese culture, both ancient and modern, including some extraordinary cuisine. Parts of Bali also sport a vibrant nightlife.

Bali charms its visitors with its uniqueness, cultural diversity and abundance of activities. The island is bohemian, friendly and vitalizing for all senses, whether it is finding your spiritual side, experiencing some of the best surfs in the world or eating the most extraordinary things.


Why choose to stay in Jimbaran?

Famous for its beachside grilled seafood, Bali’s glistening Jimbaran Bay is a popular seaside destination just South of the Ngurah Rai International Airport. Jimbaran Beach is a quiet stretch of sand popular with locals and tourists for its gentle sea, dramatic sunsets and delightful open-air seafood restaurants.

Early-morning visitors to Jimbaran’s traditional fish market can observe the island’s chefs, restaurant owners and local housewives purchasing the previous night’s catch straight off the fleet of colourful jukung fishing boats. At sunset, early diners gather on the sand to enjoy freshly-caught seafood barbecued over coconut husks, or relax in restaurants and beachfront cafés sipping cocktails.

A wonderfully calm golden beach, Jimbaran sweeps gently from the airport south towards the Bukit.

At night, the beach comes alive with countless beachside seafood restaurants placing candlelit tables and chairs right on the sand. It’s a lovely experience to eat fresh seafood with your feet in the sand while the waves of the bay lap the shoreline. Planes come in to land and take off in an endless stream from morning to night to a scenic ocean view.

Aside from the fantastic eating opportunities of Jimbaran, the bay itself is a pleasant place for swimming and sunbathing.

Overlooking Jimbaran Beach is the craggy Bukit Peninsula and the legendary surf breaks of Padang-Padang, Uluwatu, Balangan and Bingin, which boast massive breakers. Considered among the top ten surfing locales in the world, the Bukit is also a prized destination for beachcombers, sunbathers and those who seek solitude.

The celebrated Luhur Uluwatu Temple — home to powerful guardian spirits of the sea and a horde of mischievous monkeys — perches ceremoniously on the tip of the peninsula. Culmination of one of the most important spiritual pilgrimages in Bali, this magical temple, hewn from local limestone, is a unique architectural and cultural feature.

Most of Jimbaran’s accommodation is towards the centre of the bay, with the luxurious The Leaf Jimbaran nestled in midst of it. We invite you experience The Leaf Jimbaran.


Weather and What to Wear

Being located in a tropical region, Bali daytime temperatures can vary from 20 to 33⁰ C all year round. Heavy rain showers and high humidity from the west monsoon can be felt from December to March. Days are consistently sunny with rains arriving in the late afternoon, passing swiftly. June to September boasts a low humidity and can be cooler in the evenings. During this season, there is hardly any rain in the low-lying coastlands.

Although Indonesia is a Muslim country, Hinduism is the predominant religion in Bali. While the rules are relaxed for travelers in beach towns, when planning what to wear in Bali, please be respectful of the local culture.

Due to its tropical atmosphere, Bali style is generally informal. Choose clothing in lightweight fabrics to keep you cool in the humidity.

Short shorts are fine on the beach but trousers or skirts that fall below the knee are ideal when traveling to small towns or non-touristy destinations. Bring a lightweight scarf to wrap around shoulders if necessary or a lightweight long sleeve you can layer over if going to temples.
