Mastering the fine art of fusing authentic, traditional flair with fine luxury can be difficult at beach destinations, but Belmond Jimbaran Puri managed to create this charming and decadent ambiance throughout their inviting resort. I felt immediately at home upon settling in to their serene and luxurious pool villa. Lazy afternoons were spent dipping into the refreshingly crisp plunge pool, napping against a cool afternoon breeze while the Balinese sun tickled my sun-kissed skin, indulging in fresh, mouthwatering salads and fresh coconuts before preparing for an evening highlighted by an awe-inspiring sunset. Baby Ever slept soundly in her peaceful surroundings and couldn’t get enough of exploring all the lush greenery, powder soft sand, and comforting hammocks. The boy and I took evenings off parenting to count the stars from the quiet and romantic beachfront restaurant while feasting on fresh barbecued seafood and sipping local cocktails and wine. I almost shed a tear upon departing and am sure we will be back soon.
