BALI -- (January 23, 2014) -– Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay and Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan: both resorts embrace the exotic island of Bali and its cultural traditions and diverse natural landscapes with authentic experiences for couples, families and small groups of friends or colleagues.


Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay sits along Bali’s southern coast in 35 acres of oceanfront gardens. Accommodations include 147 villas that cascade down to the shore, each with distinctive Balinese architecture, water or garden views, private courtyard, thatched roof indoor and outdoor living areas, lush gardens, private pool and sun terrace. Ideal for families or groups, the resort’s nine residence villas are grand-scale homes that can accommodate up to 10 in palatial 11,000 – 24,000-square-foot spaces with two, three or four bedrooms, each with private bath, 24-hour butler service and fully equipped kitchen, and all sheltered within a walled garden enclave with private pool. The centerpiece for each residence villa is the striking two-story living and dining area beneath a thatched-roof pavilion.


Memorable dining options include four restaurants and lounges featuring Indonesian, Thai and global cuisine; in-villa and in-residence dining; Epic private dining experiences in oceanfront gazebos, and specialty meals accompanied by traditional Balinese dance performances, such as the “legong” dance and dinner on every full moon evening. Cooking classes offer novice to expert instruction in Balinese, Indonesian and Asian dishes as well as the culinary secrets of pastry.


The oceanfront Spa features an array of treatments that demonstrate the curative powers of water, including Balinese ayurvedic wellness and healing rituals. Select massages and yoga sessions are also offered in thatched open-air oceanside gazebos.


Activities take full advantage of Jimbaran Bay, with non-motorized water sports, including surfing, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing. At Tanjung Benoa Bay, motorized water sports include diving, wake skating, waterskiing and kiteboarding. Guests may also sample Bali’s natural wonderland and rich history through myriad cultural adventures, such as temple explorations, elephant safaris, trekking or local art and shopping tours. Children also have their very own Jimba Club featuring  daily complimentary activities, a children-only infinity pool and art pavilion.


Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan is perched in the island’s cool central highlands among celebrated rice terraces near the artistic capital of Ubud. Set on the ancient, meandering Ayung River in an 18-acre garden are 18 suites and 42 private villas, including the Royal Villa that can accommodate up to nine in its expansive three-bedroom space complete with rooftop lily pond and a private meditation area. Families may wish to enjoy a Family Suite, designed for two adults and two children or a child and nanny, with a master bedroom and child’s bedroom, living area and outdoor dining terrace in close proximity to restaurants, spa, pool and the Pici Pici Club for ages 5-12.


Three restaurants and lounges offer a range of dining choices, including the multi-course traditional “rice table” Rijsttafel that honors more than 350 years of Dutch influence on the island. Balinese cooking classes are another inspired highlight, with a chef-led market or resort garden tour to sample and select fresh ingredients and spices for preparation in the resort’s open-air Ayung Terrace kitchen.
