Pushing the boundaries of luxury in Bali

There are certain brands that are synonymous with luxury. Think Rolls-Royce, Chanel and Pol Roger.

To that list you can add Raffles, a name always linked to sumptuous high-end accommodation.


Raffles Hotels & Resorts has just opened the 15th Raffles Hotel in the world with the launch of Raffles Bali (above), which offers views over the Indian Ocean and Jimbaran Bay sunsets. 

With just 32 private pool villas, Raffles Bali is designed to appeal to well-travelled connoisseurs seeking elegant spaces, privacy and cultural discovery.

Once we can travel again, the journey will start with a private limousine transfer from Ngurah Rai International Airport. 

“Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or an intimate oasis of emotional wellbeing, Raffles Bali offers unparalleled panoramic ocean views and captivating sunsets from every villa,” says general manager Katya Herting. 

“Our beachfront resort is surrounded by lush tropical gardens, providing utmost relaxation due to its generosity of space.”

The pool villas are being promoted as the largest and most private in Jimbaran and there are wellbeing butlers on hand. All villas include indoor and outdoor showers, yoga mats and bespoke beach accessories, in addition to an indulgent soaking tub.

Located at the resort’s highest point is Rumari restaurant, while Loloan Beach Bar and Grill is on the resort’s secluded beach, overlooking a 25-metre infinity pool. 

Intimate dining experiences can also be arranged at The Secret Cave, illuminated with flickering torches and candlelight, or at the Purnama Honeymoon Bale, built on the rocks at the edge of the resort’s ocean frontage.

The Writers Bar and the adjoining Library offer Champagne, cocktails and after-dinner digestifs. Perhaps try a Raffles Bali Sling. 


“We are delighted to introduce our most iconic hotel brand to the beautiful island of Bali,” says Michael Issenberg, Chairman & CEO Accor Asia Pacific. 

“The highly-anticipated Raffles Bali will be the brand’s second hotel in Indonesia, joining the stunning Raffles Jakarta, and is set to become a special retreat for guests to feel pampered, through meaningful experiences and service that is both gracious and intuitive.”

The opening offer features of two nights’ stay in a private pool villa, inclusive of return limousine transfers, daily a la carte breakfast as well as selections of wellbeing and cultural experiences. Prices start from $US2,660++ for three days and two nights.
